Report Description


Terahertz light lies sandwiched between the infrared and microwave parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Terahertz finds application across an array of industries as it is safe, non-destructive, and fast. These properties makes it apt for inspection and imaging modalities. In recent years, wide ranging of terahertz spectroscopy has been witnessed across various industries due to its unparalleled sensing ability and its noninvasive and nonionizing properties.

Terahertz light showcases the potential to save lives, improve security, maintain food and drug standards, and make industry more efficient. Hence, it finds applications in non-invasive medical and dental diagnostics, characterization of electron carriers and metamaterials, drug discovery and formulation analysis of coatings and cores, homeland security and defense to detect and identify hidden explosives materials, screening people to detect metallic and non-metallic objects through clothing and other materials, investigation of contents of envelopes and paper packages without opening them, and detection of noxious or dangerous gases such as hydrogen cyanide and ammonia. It is also used in the photovoltaic (PV) industry for detection and imaging of cracks and defects buried in silicon, as well as for inspection and quality control of coatings used on crucibles for production. In the semiconductor industry, it enables high resolution fault isolation in advanced semiconductor packages and 3D imaging in integrated circuit devices.

The terahertz spectroscopy market is expected to witness double-digit expansion in the coming years. This can be attributed to factors such as technological advancements, favorable investments, funds and grants by government bodies worldwide, rising food safety concerns, increasing applications of terahertz spectroscopy as a screening technique in homeland security industry, its demonstrated potential in monitoring the quality of pharmaceutical drugs, and its use in the medical imaging of cancer and high value coatings used in automotive and other industries.

Regulatory bodies across industries have put forth various safety regulations (for instance, new international CGMP & CGDP certification for pharmaceutical excipients) to ensure quality specifications compliance, especially when new products are launched in the market. Terahertz spectroscopy technologies facilitate compliance with these regulations by allowing monitoring and measurement of samples. This is another pivotal factor that is likely to bolster demand for terahertz spectroscopy in the coming years.

In terms of application, the terahertz spectroscopy market can be divided into pharmaceutical industry (crystalline structure analysis of drugs, solid dosage-forms analysis of tablets, in-line measurement, and control of tablet coating thickness), medical imaging (oncology - detection of skin, mouth and epithelial cancers, and oral health care applications), homeland security (explosives and materials characterization, detection of noxious gases, personnel screening, mail screening), semiconductor industry, nondestructive evaluation/testing, material characterization, and solar industry.
