Medical Imaging Equipment Market: Introduction

According to the report, the global medical imaging equipment market was valued at US$ 30.7 Bn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2021 to 2028. Advances in radiology in the last few decades have fueled the growth of the global medical imaging equipment market. Imaging devices such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT or CAT), and ultrasound have allowed further options for treatment guidance, essentially with low morbidity. This has helped physicians to assess patients without surgical intervention and thereby improve the patient outcomes and quality of life.

Surge in incidence of several diseases such as respiratory, oral, orthopedic, and cardiovascular has increased demand for diagnosis and diagnostic equipment across the world. Moreover, increase in incidence of diseases across the globe propels demand for efficient diagnosis, and consequently medical imaging equipment. The global medical imaging equipment market is quite competitive, with the top players accounting for major share of the market and every company focusing on research & development to produce better medical imaging equipment.

Increase in Demand for 3D Medical Imaging Equipment Drives Global Market

A number of medical imaging modalities are currently enabling three-dimensional (3D) visualization and rapid diagnoses. Advancements in 3D imaging have led to development of computer-assisted detection (CAD) and image analysis applications. This drives the market for almost every possible modality, primarily in tomographic imaging techniques. Moreover, surgeons are using 3D imaging to plan surgeries, which has led to increased applications of these systems.

The uptake of 3D imaging for breast cancer detection, which enables better representation of tissue compared to conventional mammograms, has been on the rise. This has led to increase in utilization of imaging equipment, primarily in the developed markets such as the U.S. and Europe, where the market for 2D modalities has matured. However, these devices are gaining traction in key countries in Asia such as China and India due to rise in demand for better health care infrastructure. The economies of these countries are improving year on year, which is likely to result in continued growth in demand for 3D medical imaging equipment.
