Medical Imaging Products

Gains will be driven in part by enhanced and expanded medical imaging products that help hospitals and large outpatient facilities improve the accuracy, quality, and efficiency of diagnostic procedures.

US demand to rise 5.8% annually through 2019

Demand for medical imaging products in the US is projected to rise 5.8 percent annually to $31.9 billion in 2019, reflecting advancing technologies, aging demographic trends, evolving epidemiological patterns, and changing patient care strategies. New equipment, consumables, and data management systems with enhanced and expanded performance capabilities will build sales among hospitals and large outpatient facilities as they pursue improvements in the accuracy, quality, and efficiency of diagnostic procedures. The aging of the population will lead to an increasing level of diseases, disorders, and other health problems that are detected and analyzed through in vivo techniques. Trends promoting value-based patient care approaches will impact favorably on the market for medical imaging products that yield fast and accurate testing results and enable the long-term monitoring of therapeutic outcomes.

CT scanners to be fastest growing imaging systems

Demand for medical imaging equipment is forecast to rise 6.2 percent per year to $20.7 billion in 2019. CT scanners will generate the fastest revenue growth as an increasing number of currently installed systems reach the end of their product life cycles and are replaced with higher value-added new-generation models. High-slice CT models will fare particularly well in the marketplace based on the higher resolution of images, broader disease detection capabilities, and faster testing times that they offer. These scanners are able to detect the smallest of tumors or plaque deposits rapidly, making them well suited to the diagnosis of cancer and heart disease.

MRI, PET/CT systems among best opportunities

Among other medical imaging equipment, MRI, combination PET/CT, digital radiology systems, and handheld ultrasound devices will account for the fastest unit and revenue growth. High-field scanners will dominate new MRI installations due to their ability to visualize exceptionally fine anatomical detail and to provide images of physiological processes. Combination PET/CT systems will expand applications in nuclear medicine based on dual anatomical and metabolic screening capabilities and advantages in blood flow analysis. Benefits of enhanced image quality and direct computerized processing and storage will promote the continuing replacement of computed radiology and analog X-ray machines with digital radiology equipment. Handheld ultrasound devices will command rapid sales growth as they provide for timely and cost-effective patient testing and therapeutic decision-making at point-of-care sites.

Study coverage

This Freedonia study analyzes the $24.1 billion US medical imaging industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by product (e.g., X-ray, MRI, ultrasound, CT, nuclear medicine, dental imaging, contrast agents, radiopharmaceuticals, PACS) and market (hospitals, outpatient). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 26 industry participants, including GE Healthcare, Siemens Medical Solutions USA, and Philips Healthcare.
