Diagnostic Imaging Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Advanced Diagnostic Imaging Technology Systems - One of the major factors contributing to growth in this market is the introduction of modern technology devices and a growing healthcare industry in Asia. For instance, in May 2020 Fujifilm Corporation launched a new technology based on artificial intelligence to detect lung nodules. In order to assist in lung cancer diagnosis, this technology is used for detecting pulmonary nodules during CT scans of the chest.
  • Rising Geriatric Population — The elderly population is more prone to chronic and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer, Parkinson's, and arthritis, and the rising need for the elderly population to get diagnostic imaging is estimated to drive market growth.
  • Increasing Al Enabled Medical Imaging Equipment - One of the most important factors that are expected to contribute to a growing product demand for medical imaging and visualization system during the forecast period is an increased use in developed countries of automated instruments capable of rapid diagnosis and analysis. For instance, in December 2020, Hologic Inc. announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration has approved its Genius Al detection technology to detect breast cancer at an earlier stage.


  • Increasing Product Recalls – The increasing product recalls associated with diagnostic imaging is one of the major factors predicted to slow down the market growth.
  • Technical Limitations associated with standalone imaging modalities
  • Lack of skilled and trained professionals is expected to hamper the market growth

Diagnostic Imaging Segmentation

Product (X-Ray, MRI, Ultrasound, CT Scanners, Nuclear)

The CT scanners segment is estimated to account for 39% share of the global diagnostic imaging market in the year 2036. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the new product launches in the field. For instance, in January 2020, Allergen, in collaboration with Canon Medical Systems Corporation, introduced a new CT scanner in the market, the ACUTOM 32, which is a 32-slice CT scanner featuring a wide bore gantry of 32 cm, about a 2.0 MHU X-ray tube, and about 0.75 seconds of rotation time. In January of 2022, the Port Perry Hospital Foundation, PPHF succeeded in reaching its USD 4 million goal to purchase a CT scanner and other critical items for Scugog Health Center. Moreover, the prevalence of COVID-19 and the pandemic has increased the demand for diagnostic imaging which contributed to the growth. Due to the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases, Samsung NeuroLogica added a 32-slice mobile BodyTom CT scanner in February 2020.

Application (Cardiology, Urology, Orthopedic, Neurology, Oncology, Gynecology)

Diagnostic imaging market from the oncology segment is expected to garner a significant share during the time period between 2024-2036. The demand for oncology imaging is driven by an increase in the number of cancer cases around the world, together with a growing emphasis on finding and detecting cancers before they develop. This segment of the oncology application is expected to be driven by increasing access to healthcare facilities and diagnostic imaging centers in emerging economies along with a relatively higher compound annual growth rate.
