The decline in healthcare budgets especially developed economies such as the U.S. are proving to be detrimental to the growth of medical imaging equipment market. Further, rising awareness among doctors as well as patients about the health hazards of radiation is also posing a challenge to the market’s growth. High cost of imaging modalities such as CT scan and MRI leading to their slow adoption in cost sensitive nations is also likely to restrain the market’s growth.

X-ray Technology to Remain on Top Spot

The key technologies used for medical imaging equipment are X-ray devices, ultrasound systems, magnetic resonance imaging equipment, computed tomography scanners, and nuclear imaging equipment. X-ray devices comprise X-ray technology, computed tomography, and digital radiography. Among these, digital radiography holds the leading share owing to advantages of less exposure to radiation and higher image quality over conventional analog X-ray segment. With a revenue contribution of US$12.34 bn by 2023 end, the X-ray technology segment is likely to hold supremacy over the forecast period.

Presence of Modern Healthcare Infrastructure Makes North America Leader

North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa are the key regional segments of the global medical imaging equipment market. Of them, North America held dominance in 2014 with a share of close to 32.4%. The growth of this region is mainly because of a modern healthcare infrastructure that supports adoption of imaging equipment.

Companies Vie to Tap into Emerging Economies for Expansion

The key enterprises operating in the global medical imaging equipment market are Siemens Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Shimadzu Corporation, Hitachi Medical, GE Healthcare, Samsung Medison Co. Ltd., and Hologic Inc. Investments in emerging economies such as India and Brazil that have a rising pool of geriatrics is one of the key growth strategies adopted by companies in the medical imaging equipment market to attain organic growth. These companies are also engaged in reselling used devices by refurbishing them in developing economies where the healthcare sector is still developing.
