Global Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Market Highlights 2020-2029

The global diagnostic imaging equipment market is anticipated to grow with a notable CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2029. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing need for early detection and diagnosis of diseases, coupled with the increasing popularity of diagnostic imaging and radiology services, and rapid advancements in medical imaging technology.

Introduction to Diagnostic Imaging Equipment

Diagnostic imaging, also popularly known as medical imaging, is referred to all the techniques and processes that are required for imaging the interior of a human body. Diagnostic imaging equipment involves all the equipment that allow to capture and process the scanned image. The scanned image from the medical imaging equipment is then used further for clinical analysis and medical intervention, or for visual representation of the function of some tissues or organs in biological science. There are different types of medical imaging equipment, such as radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, tomography, echocardiography, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, elastography, and others.

Market Size and Forecast

The global diagnostic imaging equipment market is thriving on account of the increasing interests amongst researchers for advanced medical imaging equipment, along with the increasing technological advancements in the field of medical imaging, including upright MRI devices and handheld X-ray devices amongst others. Furthermore, growing geriatric population around the globe and the need for medical diagnosis, are some of the additional factors anticipated to contribute to the market growth.

The market is segmented by product into computed tomography (CT) scanners, nuclear imaging (NI) equipment, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems, ultrasound scanners, x-ray devices, and others. Among these segments, the x-ray devices segment is projected to hold the dominating share by the end of 2021. X-ray diagnostic imaging is recognized as a valuable medical tool for painless and non-invasive diagnosis of diseases. With the recent advancements in medical imaging technology, along with the need for various end use purposes, such as for dental purposes, the adoption of hand-held x-ray devices have observed a significant growth. These devices provide excellent portability unlike the conventional x-ray devices, and hence can be used widely upon patients with special needs, or in case of pediatric or geriatric patients. On the other hand, the MRI systems segment is anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period on account of the growing advancement in MRI scanning technology, and the increasing adoption of MRI scanning systems by the end-users. One of the latest advancements observed in the MRI scanning systems in the development of 3T MRI scanning technology. 3T or 3 Tesla MRI scanning equipment uses powerful magnets to produce 3 Tesla magnetic field, and is twice as powerful as the fields used in a conventional MRI scanner.

Growth Drivers

Growing Concern for Chronic Diseases Worldwide to Drive Market Growth

According to the statistics by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), six in ten adults in the United States have a chronic disease.


On account of the growing concern for different diseases worldwide, there is a rising need amongst individuals to diagnose the cause of the disease at the early stage, which in turn is raising the need for diagnostic imaging. Moreover, with the increasing concern for various diseases, there is also a raising need amongst the medical imaging equipment manufacturers to increase their spending on research and development so as to have advanced diagnostic imaging equipment. For instance, with the recent advancements in medical imaging, technological advancements, such as 3D mammography, NEMA XR-29 standard attributes (MITA Smart Dose) for CT equipment, 3T MRI, mobile radiography systems, digital PET equipment, and others. Additionally, growing expenditure of the government of nations globally for advancements in the healthcare industry, and the rising demand for minimally invasive & non-invasive medical imaging and visualization systems, are further anticipated to drive the growth of the global diagnostic imaging equipment market during the forecast period.


High Cost of Diagnostic Imaging Equipment and Concerns for Exposure to Harmful Radiations to Hamper the Market Growth

Diagnostic imaging equipment often cost very high owing to the numerous advanced components present in the equipment, as well as for the efforts added by the developers for developing the medical imaging equipment. Moreover, stringent government regulations for lowering the impact of the harmful radiations emitted from the diagnostic imaging equipment are further anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
