The growing prevalence of chronic diseases is creating a demand for quality scanning, X-ray vision and treatment devices in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Hence, numerous nations are emphasizing to establish novel strategies to enhance access to quality care for people. In India, innovative methods have been introduced to improve the monitoring of such ailments and other related conditions. Additionally, in recent years, awareness related to the importance of early-stage diagnosis and treatment and its potential effect in quick recovery of patient is surging positively across developing countries. The above-mentioned factors will contribute to boosting the demand for an advanced interventional radiology product.

Interventional radiology (IR) is a medical technology that uses minimally invasive procedures in medical imaging systems, such as x-ray fluoroscopy, MRI, ultrasound, etc. This method can be utilized in both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. These procedures follow small incisions or orifice in the human body. This helps to decrease risks, pain, and improve recovery as compared to open surgery procedures. Using intervention radiology makes the surgical procedure or diagnosis more accurate and gives precise & real-time visualization to the abnormality in the patient’s body.

High cost of various radiology devices such as X-ray systems, MRI scanners, and CT scanners act as a major restraint for the market especially in emerging countries. These factors have resulted in lower adoption of premium devices in the industry, thereby leading to ordinary growth of the medical imaging equipment industry. The market growth can be affected in developing countries with comparatively lower income levels attributed to high costs related to minimal invasive treatment therapy. However, the government in various developing countries is undertaking several initiatives to reduce the cost of the treatment. In addition to this, lack of awareness in developing and under-developed regions may restrict the industry growth.

The COVID-19 outbreak had a slightly negative influence on the interventional radiology market since regulatory limitations impacted the hospital and healthcare services around the world. The pandemic had a significant impact on the functioning of general hospital treatments for non-COVID-19 patients in hospitals around the world due to disruption of the healthcare sector. The radiology domain shared a substantial burden of the overall disruption created by pandemic in the healthcare sector. For instance, in August 2020 a report published by the SAGE Public Health Emergency Collection examined the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on interventional radiology treatment in Canada that showed there was a 49.3% decline in demand for acute interventional radiology services across Canada. A similar survey outcome highlighted that around 88% of those polled in the survey reported a decline in elective interventional radiology services during the pandemic.

However, the market returned to its pre-pandemic levels in 2021 as the procedures were allowed from third quarter of 2020. Similarly, an article published by the SAGE on vascular and interventional radiology in 2021 reported that there was a notable rise in the use of interventional radiology for elective procedures including nephrostomy, percutaneous abdominal diseases, peritoneal dialysis, and catheter insertion, among others. Further, according to the data published by the GLOBECON in 2020, around 19.3 million patients were diagnosed by cancer using interventional radiology technology across the globe. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of cancer patients and chronic diseases due to low immunity during COVID-19 pandemic helped to stimulate the market demand in the later part of outbreak.

Increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures across the globe is predicted to drive the market statistics

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disorders among adults and geriatric patients are contributing to the rising demand for minimally invasive treatment options and is one of the prime factors driving the intervention radiology market growth. Patients suffering from chronic diseases can be treated using various intervention radiology technologies such as CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, and others. Additionally, due to various psychological factors for surgical operation in patients have shown a positive sign for the market expansion.

Minimally invasive surgeries have gained popularity as they are cost-effective and require a shorter stay at hospitals. These treatments have increased the life expectancy among patients and set a considerable prevalence to dramatically impact the market. The low-cost technologies and cost-effective treatment have increased the number of patient dependency on interventional radiology treatment. Moreover, patients that receive proper care are expected to develop fewer co-morbid conditions and experience a lower risk. Thus, the continuously increasing patient number has significantly boosted the demand for intervention radiology treatment that in turn will uplift the minimally invasive procedures adoption rate.

Surging adoption of MRI is anticipated to stimulate the market growth positively

Based on product, the market is segmented as CT scanners, angiography systems, MRI systems, ultrasound imaging systems, and others. MRI systems segment surpassed USD 2,868 million in 2021. The substantial share of the segment is owing to the increased use of interventional radiology for the treatment of chronic disorders in patients. MRI is an effective method used for the treatment of various diseases such as anomalies of the brain & spinal cord, tumours, cysts, cancers, cardiovascular disorders, etc.

MRI uses non-invasive scanning techniques that produces 3-D imaging and detailed anatomical images that are used for disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment monitoring of patients. For instance, interventional radiology helps in cancer treatment with the help of iMRI in various effective ways. This can help to prevent bleeding during surgery, ease in pain and minimize the side effects after treatment. Hence, the above-mentioned factors are projected to fuel the adoption of MRI systems.

Increasing prevalence of cardiological disorders among the adult patients is projected to enhance the market forecasts
