$36.43 Billion Diagnostic Imaging (MRI, Ultrasound, CT, Nuclear Imaging) Market 2017 - Global Forecast to 2021 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Diagnostic Imaging Market by Product, MRI, Ultrasound, CT, Nuclear Imaging, Application, End User - Global Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.

The global diagnostic imaging market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2016 to 2021 to reach USD 36.43 billion by 2021

Factors such as increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, rapid growth in the geriatric population, growing government investments for modernization of imaging facilities, rising number of private imaging centers (especially in emerging countries), technological advancements in diagnostic imaging modalities, and the improving healthcare infrastructure in emerging markets and availability of low-cost, technologically advanced imaging systems with applications in multiple fields are driving the growth of this market.

On the other hand, the high cost of diagnostic imaging systems, technological limitations associated with standalone systems, unfavorable healthcare reforms in the U.S., and shortage of helium are the key factors limiting the growth of the market.

North America is expected to command the largest share of the market in 2016, followed by Europe. The market in the North American market is primarily driven by various factors, including the high incidence and prevalence of various diseases (such as cancer and CVD), large number of diagnostic imaging centers and procedures in this region, growing number of ongoing research activities, and fast adoption of technologically advanced imaging systems.
