Research and Markets: Global Medical Imaging Reagents Market 2012-2016: Read What's Trending
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fr7xmw/global_medical) has announced the addition of the "Global Medical Imaging Reagents Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Medical Imaging Reagents market to grow at a CAGR of 7.95 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing aging population. The Global Medical Imaging Reagents market has also been witnessing the increasing demand for radiopharmaceuticals. However, the lack of reimbursements for imaging procedures could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Bracco S.p.A, Covidien plc, GE Healthcare and Lantheus Medical Imaging Inc.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are Aspect Imaging, Bayer AG, Guerbet SA, IBA Molecular Imaging and PerkinElmer Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: As a result of the rise in the incidences of cardiovascular, oncological, and neurological disorders among the population, there has been an increase in the volume of PET, SPECT, SPECT-CT, PET-MRI, and SPECT-MRI procedures for imaging and diagnosis over recent years. Imaging without utilization of radiopharmaceuticals has also become indispensable owing to their ability to diagnose various disease processes much earlier than other diagnostic tests. For instance, it is expected that an increasing number of oncology and cardiology procedures will drive the demand for radiopharmaceuticals such as fluorodeoxyglucose used for PET scans. Thus, the increasing demand for radiopharmaceuticals is expected to fuel the growth in this market.
According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increasing global aging population and associated increase in incidences of cardiovascular diseases, neurological disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, and oncologic disorders among the aged population. The rise in demand for diagnostic screening of elderly patients has enhanced the need of imaging reagents.
