Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases across the globe will serve to be a high impact rendering factor for CT scanner market growth. Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer are difficult to manage and causes significant cost burden on healthcare sector. Key to better management of these diseases is accurate diagnosis of conditions in early stages. As CT scanner allows the early and accurate diagnosis of several chronic diseases, its demand is forecasted to increase with the rising prevalence of chronic diseases.

CT scan is a long-established imaging technique that has witnessed ample modifications and improvements over the past few decades. Technological advancements have reduced the dose of radiation without hampering the quality of image. Such technological advancements coupled with the procedural benefits of CT scan over other imaging modalities such as MRI and X-ray will stimulate its demand over forthcoming years. 

CT scanner is a cost intensive capital equipment and its high cost is forecasted to hamper affordability, particularly in developing and underdeveloped region. Moreover, refurbished and used CT equipment are available at significant low cost compared to brand new equipment. Availability of such equipment will restrain industry growth to some extent. 

CT Scanner Market, By Architecture

O-arm architecture segment dominated the industry in 2016 and will continue to dominate over forecast period owing to its wide range of clinical application. O-arm architecture is used for spinal surgeries and spinal instrument placement. Increasing number of spinal cases requiring use of O-arm equipment will support the segment growth of CT scanner market.


C-arm segment is expected to witness slow growth rate compared to O-arm segment. However, it has been used for fluoroscopic intraoperative imaging, in certain orthopaedic procedure and emergency care. Associated advantages of C-arm equipment such as high-resolution images, real time imaging and correction will stimulate segment growth to some extent.

CT Scanner Market, By Type

Portable segment will grow at a robust CAGR over the forecast timeframe due to number of advantages and convenience associated with it. Portable scanners require less space on the floor, weight less and are small in size.

Stationary type CT scanners are widely used by hospitals and institutions where large number of CT scans are conducted every month. The stationary scanners, though require more space for installation, are economic compared to portable equipment. As a result, stationary CT scanner type segment dominated the industry in 2016.

CT Scanner Market, By Technology

Based on technology, cone beam segment is forecasted to growth at a fastest CAGR over the forecast timeframe. The robust growth can be attributed to increasing demand in cosmetic dentistry and technological advancements. Reduced risk involved in advance cone beam imaging, rapid scan time and increasing prevalence of dental disorders will escalate the segment growth.

High slice technology segment currently dominates the CT scanner market due to superior quality of images offered compared to low slice devices. As industry players are putting enormous efforts for the development of high slice systems, the segment is forecasted to witness healthy growth.

CT Scanner Market, By Application

CT scanners have extensive application in human and animal diagnostics, surgeries, and research field. Increasing prevalence of cardiological, neurological and oncological disorders will drive the demand of CT devices for human diagnostics. This will enable human application segment to retain its dominant position in near future.

Applications of computed tomography (CT) in the field of research and development are growing. It has been increasingly used for biomechanical analyses and paleoanthropological research. Moreover, Various organizations such as national cancer institute are funding research for improving application of CT scanners in diagnostic fields. Such favourable initiatives will further propel the research application segment growth.

CT Scanner Market, By End-use

CT scanner is one of the essential equipment in hospital premises. Several diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are carried out in hospitals involves use of CT devices. With the increasing number of diagnostic procedures being carried in hospitals and rising awareness pertaining to the benefits of early diagnosis, demand of CT scanners in hospital end-use segment will rise.

Ambulatory surgical centres often install CT scanners that require less space on the floor and have faster scanning time. Patient inflow to ambulatory is increasing because of less waiting time, lower cost, and convenience of location. Increasing patient flow is bound to increase the demand for CT scans in ambulatory surgical centres.

CT Scanner Market, By Region

Asia pacific region dominated the CT scanner market in 2016 and is projected to witness robust growth rate over forecast timeframe. The rapid growth is attributable to huge patient pool and increasing incidences of chronic diseases. Favourable demographic trends such as growing elderly population base coupled with rising disposable income will fuel the regional growth over forecast period. North America CT scanner market is expected to show healthy growth due to increasing adoption of technologically advanced devices and favourable reimbursement scenario.
