Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases across the Globe to Boost Market Growth

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and a globally aging population contribute to the growing demand for diagnostic imaging procedures for early detection and monitoring of health conditions. Around 18 million individuals every year die of cardiovascular disease (CVD) as per the statistics of the World Health Organization. CVD is one of the primary causes of global fatalities. Over 2 million surgeries were performed by surgeons in 2018 as reported by the World Health Organization and out of 100%, about 11% of all diseases and injuries require surgical treatment. Every 9 minutes a new name is added to the list of organ transplantation occupied by around 100,000 people worldwide. In 2021, more than 40,000 organs are transplanted. Growing popularity of point-of-care imaging devices that allow for faster and more convenient diagnostic procedures, particularly in emergency settings and remote locations. Point-of-care imaging allows healthcare professionals to obtain immediate diagnostic information, facilitating quicker decision-making and timely initiation of treatment. This is especially crucial in emergency situations or critical care settings where time is of the essence. Rapid access to diagnostic imaging at the point of care can lead to improved patient outcomes. Early and accurate diagnosis enables healthcare providers to initiate appropriate interventions promptly, potentially reducing complications and improving overall patient recovery.

Medical Imaging Industry: Regional Overview

The global medical imaging market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region.

Aging Population Demographics to Drive the Market Growth in North America Region

The medical imaging market in North America region is estimated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033. The aging demographic in North America is a key driver for the market. The elderly population often requires more frequent medical evaluations and diagnostic imaging for age-related health issues. As the baby boomer generation ages, there is a surge in demand for imaging services to detect and address age-related conditions, such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases, and various cancers. This demographic shift fuels the need for advanced and diverse medical imaging technologies to cater to the unique healthcare requirements of the elderly. According to the United States Census Bureau, by 2030, all baby boomers will be older than 65, expanding the size of the older population to an estimated 73 million. The growing emphasis on preventive healthcare is driving the market in North America. Medical imaging plays a crucial role in preventive medicine by enabling early detection of potential health issues, allowing for timely intervention and treatment. With a shift in healthcare priorities towards proactive health management, the demand for preventive screenings and imaging services is on the rise.

Increasing Healthcare Expenditure to Propel the Growth in the Asia Pacific Region

The Asia Pacific medical imaging market is estimated to garner the highest CAGR by the end of 2033. The continuous rise in healthcare expenditure in the Asia-Pacific region serves as a significant driver for the market. As countries invest more in healthcare infrastructure, there is a parallel increase in the adoption of advanced medical imaging technologies. This includes the procurement of modern imaging equipment, such as MRI and CT scanners, to enhance diagnostic capabilities and provide better healthcare services to a growing population. According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), healthcare spending in the Asia-Pacific region has been steadily increasing, with an average annual growth rate of around 6.3%. The escalating prevalence of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancer, is a key driver for the growth of the medical imaging market in Asia-Pacific. The demand for diagnostic imaging technologies is on the rise as healthcare providers strive to manage and treat chronic conditions effectively. Early detection through medical imaging aids in timely intervention, leading to improved patient outcomes and a reduction in the overall burden of chronic diseases on healthcare systems.
