CT Scanner Market Size

CT Scanner Market size recorded more than USD 6.2 billion in 2022 and is likely to exhibit 6.5% CAGR from 2023-2032. Rising inclination towards minimally invasive diagnostics will drive industry growth.

CT Scanner Market

The increasing frequency of chronic diseases, including cancer, neurological, cardiac diseases, dental problems and musculoskeletal disorders worldwide will boost the CT scanner industry. It has been estimated that 31.5% of the total population across the U.S. suffers from multiple chronic diseases. CT scanners, on account of their easy availability and accessibility, are widely employed for the detection and treatment of these diseases. The surging penetration of chronic ailments in the rapidly expanding older population will further influence the market expansion.

CT Scanner Market Trends

The growing concerns of ionizing radiation from the usage of CT scans as they deploy X-rays for creating images may restrict the product preference. Though the amount of radiation is generally low, the repeated exposure to radiation is likely to augment the risk of cancer. A recent study published in the journal Radiology revealed that patients that received over 5 CT scans showed 62% increased risk of developing leukemia as opposed to those with no CT scan. Furthermore, CT scans deploy contrast dye that help in highlighting certain areas of the body. Hence, the rising rate of allergic reactions to the contrast dye, leading to symptoms such as difficulty breathing, hives, or swelling may also restrict the market share.

CT Scanner Market Analysis

Global CT Scanner Market Size, By Architecture,

Based on architecture, the CT scanner market valuation from the O-arm segment reached over USD 3 billion in 2022. O-arm CT scanners have grown largely favoured among surgeons to provide highly detailed, 3D images of the spine and its surrounding structures as they are integrated with advanced imaging technologies. The swiftly aging population along with the emergence of sedentary lifestyles have resulted in the thriving occurrence of spinal disorders, including spinal stenosis, herniated discs, and degenerative disc diseases, subsequently driving the preference for O-ring CT scanners.



Global CT Scanner Market Revenue Share, By Technology

CT scanner market from the high-slice technology segment is poised to depict 6.7% CAGR from 2023-2032. The growing episodes of cardiovascular disorders has stirred the higher need for accurate diagnostic imaging solutions. Hence, high-end slice technology is largely deployed for its relatively 80% lower radiation exposure as compared to other slice technologies to offer more accuracy. The rising deployment of high-slice devices for offering detailed images of obese patients will further anchor the product adoption.



CT scanner market share from research applications will reach USD 1.2 billion by the end of 2032. CT scanners are increasingly deployed in paleoanthropological research to perform biomechanical analyses of bone distribution, studying brain morphology as well as the reconstructing the external morphology of human fossils. The increasing R&D investments to bring innovations in the CT scanners will also play a key role in the market expansion. To illustrate, the NIBIB (National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering) funded the research for the development of technologically advanced breast CT scanner to offer 3D imaging of breasts while assisting radiologists in detecting hard-to-find tumors.



In terms of revenue, the CT scanner market size from hospitals is expected to exhibit 6.4% CAGR from 2023-2032. This can be attributed to the availability of well-established referral networks with insurance providers in these settings. Hospitals offer vast access to cutting-edge diagnostic technologies, including advanced CT scanners, for providing comprehensive medical care to patients. The strong presence of relatively high patient volume in hospitals will further enhance the market trends.


North America CT Scanner Market Size

North America CT scanner market valuation is slated to exceed USD 3.2 billion by 2032. The incoming stream of technological advancements has led to the rising patient inclination towards newer technologies. Additionally, the higher disposable incomes of the regional consumers have accelerated the rise in healthcare expenditure. The surging prevalence of various chronic diseases will also foster the market progress in North America.
