Market Drivers

The market for medical imaging has grown as a result of recent innovations and technological advancements. Specialists in the medical field make extensive use of medical imaging techniques for the purpose of diagnosing diseases and providing guidance for treatment. The surgical views provided by the true 3D software help to reduce the occurrence of unexpected situations during the performance of surgeries, helping the surgeons to give precise care to the patient.  Better patient care is made possible by breakthrough innovations such as (AI) artificial intelligence and (VR) virtual reality that are combined with three-dimensional imaging, thereby facilitating the expansion of market share. Also, these advancements make disease finding and treatment more favorable by facilitating accurate and early disease detection. Additionally, the new approaches to portable and wearable scanners, nuclear imaging, etc., are predicted to further accelerate the growth of the medical imaging market.

Market Restraints

Frequent product recalls in medical imaging equipment are the major factor predicted to hamper the market growth of medical imaging during the forecast period. This has led to the decreased adoption of innovative and new equipment in several countries. Several domestic and established players have entered the market, offering low-cost and refurbished equipment to global healthcare facilities. This is combined with the presence of largely refurbished equipment in the market, especially in developing markets such as India and China. The overall cost-benefit of these refurbished devices for medium and small-sized healthcare facilities is in a higher ratio, which has resulted in lower adoption.

Market Opportunities

Emerging economies such as China, India, South Korea, Brazil, Russia, Turkey, and South Africa are offering higher growth opportunities for the key market players in the medical imaging market. The rising incidence of chronic diseases such as stroke, cancer, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases, as well as the higher mortality rates in these countries, face the need for early disease detection. Although the cost factor is a major concern in these emerging countries, their large population bases, especially in China and India offer sustainable growth in the market for medical imaging devices.
