Moreover, the impact of COVID-19 on the market is observed to be substantial. The demand for medical imaging has increased since the outbreak of second wave and is slated to upsurge in the coming years. Advanced medical imaging devices such as chest X-rays and chest computed tomography provide effective data on COVID-19 that surges its demand.

Ongoing innovations in the field of medical imaging will create numerous growth opportunities

The medical imaging market has seen numerous changes in recent years and saves millions of lives every year across the globe. It extensively helps healthcare specialties to diagnose a broad range of health ailments from heart disease to stroke and from appendicitis to cancer. The market always focuses to deliver novel innovations to patients and physicians. Technological improvements in diagnostic imaging systems along with their higher demand to improve patient outcomes will positively impact the industry expansion.

Eminent participants working in the market are shifting their focus towards value-based radiology and patient-centric imaging. Different innovations have been made in numerous imaging modalities including MRI, ultrasound, mammography, 3D imaging as well as nuclear imaging among others. However, higher costs associated with the medical imaging devices may hinder the industry growth to a certain extent.

Increasing preference for nuclear imaging will accelerate the market progression

The nuclear imaging sector accounted for around USD 3.5 billion in 2020. In this type of imaging, an individual ingests radioactive materials known as radiopharmaceuticals or radiotracers just before the medical imaging scan. During this scan, a camera aims on the location of radioactive material concentrates and help healthcare professionals to make informed health decisions. These scans are particularly helpful for diagnosing cancer, gall bladder disease, and thyroid disease as well as heart conditions.
