Global Medical Imaging Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.95% During the Period 2017 - 2021; Finds New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global Medical Imaging Market 2017 - 2021” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2017 -- Report forecast the global medical imaging market to grow at a CAGR of 4.95% during the period 2017-2021.

body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. Medical imaging is performed to reveal the internal structures hidden by the skin and bones to examine and diagnose the medical condition. It plays a vital role not only in diagnosis but also in the treatment process as it is taken into consideration during the follow-up of various diseases. Various methods for medical imaging include X-rays, SPECT/PET, ultrasound, CT, and MRI. For the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases, these methods are used individually or in combination for a better understanding of the medical condition.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global medical imaging market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of medical imaging equipment by product type such as:
- CT Scanners
- X-rays
- Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET)
- Ultrasound

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
- Americas

According to the report, general X-rays is the leading segment in the overall global medical imaging market. However, conventional analog X-ray systems has reached maturity and is growing at a slow rate, especially in developed countries, as the technology has become obsolete and is being replaced by newer technologies. The market has been witnessing upgrades of analog X-ray systems to digital X-ray systems. With the increased cost of digital X-ray systems, manufacturers have found a cost effective solution to convert analog X-ray systems to digital X-ray systems. This can be done by using retrofit kits. Retrofit kits are also used to convert analog X-ray systems into computed radiography systems by harnessing detection devices such as high-density solid scan systems or flat panel detectors. The average cost of a retrofit is approximately $105,000, while a new digital radiography system costs approximately $180,000. For instance, Carestream Health launched mobile retrofit kits such as DRX mobile retrofit kit, DRX transportable, and DRX field portable. The introduction of such technologies have made it possible for hospitals and other diagnostic centers to refurbish their analog systems at a cheaper price.

Further, the report states that the global medical imaging market is experiencing an increased shift toward the use of refurbished systems due to the high cost of the device and installation. Small diagnostic centers will not be able to afford these expenses, so they prefer used and refurbished medical imaging equipment as they are available at a low price in comparison with new ones and come with a warranty period of a couple of years. Many local vendors are engaged in the import/export of used and refurbished equipment. Apart from the low purchasing power and the lack of awareness in developing nations, customers trust local companies that provide products at a low cost and have better aftersales support. This trend will help low-cost hospitals gain access to medical imaging technologies.
