Diagnostic Imaging Market by 2026 - Global Trends, Share Analysis, Leading Players, Business Opportunities

- In 2021, Siemens Healthineers (Germany), received FDA clearance for the Biograph Vision Quadra, a PET/CT scanner for clinical use and translational research


Northbrook, IL 60062 -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/29/2022 -- The diagnostic imaging market is projected to reach USD 35.0 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period.

Growing geriatric population and the rising prevalence of associated diseases;

The risk of developing diseases increases proportionately with age. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 80% of the elderly in the US suffer from at least one chronic condition. In addition, the American Medical Association (AMA) estimates that at least 60% of individuals aged 65 and above will be living with more than one chronic condition by 2030. This increase in the aging population will drive the demand for improved healthcare facilities and advanced treatment options and medication.

With the rapid growth in the geriatric population globally, the prevalence of age-associated diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, and dementia, along with CVDs and cancer, is expected to increase.
