Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/18/2014 -- Diagnostic Imaging Market by X-ray Systems (Digital, Analog, Portable), Computed Tomography, Ultrasound Imaging Systems (2D, 3D, 4D, Doppler), MRI Machines (Closed & Open), and Nuclear Imaging Systems (SPECT, PET, PET/CT) - Global Forecasts to 2018
The global diagnostic imaging market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% and is expected to reach ~$27,115.4 million by 2018. Although the mature markets hold larger shares in diagnostic imaging, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.9%. The growth of the diagnostic imaging market is primarily triggered by factors such as the rapidly increasing aging population, improving healthcare facilities in the emerging countries of the Asia-Pacific and RoW regions, geographic expansion of market players across the globe, and the government initiatives to fulfill healthcare needs. However, factors such as high cost of diagnostic imaging systems, growing preference of hospitals towards refurbished devices due to budget constraints, and reimbursement cuts in mature regions are restraining the growth of the diagnostic imaging market. Growing public-private investments by market players in the emerging regions of Asia-Pacific and RoW are creating opportunities for the growth of the diagnostic imaging market in these regions.
