CT Scanner Market, By Architecture

O-arm architecture segment dominated the industry in 2018 with revenue size USD 3.2 billion owing to its wide range of clinical applications. O-arm architecture is extensively used for spinal surgeries. As reported by WHO, annually around 250,000 to 500,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury globally. Growing number of spinal cases across the globe requiring use of O-arm equipment will trigger the segment growth.

C-arm segment is expected to witness 5.1% growth throughout the analysis period owing to its massive usage for fluoroscopic intraoperative imaging in certain orthopaedic procedure and emergency care. Additionally, C-arm scanners are widely utilized in minimally invasive surgeries as they provide improved spatial resolution and accurate patient positioning. Aforementioned factors are projected to boost its adoption to enhance the success rate of surgeries.


CT Scanner Market, By Type

Portable segment was valued at USD 2 billion in 2018. Considerable revenue size is due to number of advantages and convenience associated with it. Portable scanners require less space on the floor and weigh less. Additionally, portable CT scanner also speed up the time of scanning and are highly preferred in patients suffering from stroke that stimulates the segmental growth.

Stationary CT Scanner segment will have sluggish 5.4% growth during forecast timeframe owing to the large area occupied by stationary CT Scanner. However, stationary scanner are commonly used by hospitals and institutions that admit large number of patient suffering from heart stroke and brain injuries every month. Moreover, recently developed stationary systems are sufficiently reliable and provide accurate diagnosis that further escalates the segment growth.

CT Scanner Market, By Technology

Cone beam segment is forecasted to have 5.9% growth over the analysis period. The robust segmental growth can be attributed to increasing demand for computed cone technology in cosmetic and orthopaedic surgeries. Also, reduced risk involved in advance cone beam imaging, rapid scan time and its extensive use in treatment of dental diseases will further escalate the segment growth.

High slice technology segment accounted for 41.6% in 2018 due to superior quality of images offered in contrast to low slice devices. Recently developed 265-slice CT scanners can provide better quality images as compared to the 64-slice systems. 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

Human segment will have 5.5% growth during the forecast years as CT scanners are highly preferred in human diagnostics. Increasing prevalence of cardiological, neurological and oncological disorders will drive the demand of CT devices for human diagnostics. Arrhythmias and other chronic conditions are better suited for high-slice systems that provides quick diagnosis as well as offer a greater imaging area. This will enable human application segment to retain its dominant position in near future.


Research segment accounted for 10.7% revenue share in 2018 and is expected to have considerable revenue share in the upcoming years due to its growing applications in the field of research and development. For instance, CT scanners have 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 Scanner in diagnostic fields. Such favourable initiatives will further propel the research application segment growth.


CT Scanner Market, By End-Use

Hospitals segment will witness 5.3% growth during the forecast period. CT scanner is one of the essential equipment in hospital premises as several diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are carried out in hospitals involves use of CT devices.

CT Scanner Industry Background  

CT Scanner industry can be traced back to 1970’s with the introduction of first CT scanner in 1971. Earlier developed computed tomography device had single detector that was able to diagnose brain injuries. Later, first generation CT Scanner were developed that were capable of better diagnosing chronic heart conditions. As technology progressed, second and third generation devices with enhanced capacity were introduced. Currently, key industry players have developed fourth generation CT Scanner with multiple detectors that minimized the time required for diagnosis. At present, this industry is matured particularly in North America and consistent technological advancements has imparted North America enormous growth opportunities. However, in emerging economies this industry is still in developing phase due to affordability issues associated with the high cost of these devices. Therefore, government and other regulatory authorities in developing countries are actively taking initiatives that have helped in lowering the price of CT scanners drastically.
