Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024 - 2036

In-vivo Imaging Market size is poised to reach USD 6 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a rate of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024 – 2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of in-vivo imaging was USD 3 Billion. The reason behind the growth is impelled by the increasing cases of cancer across the globe. Cancer is the primary cause of death, and in nations with low Human Development Indexes (HDI), the number of new cases is rising rapidly.

In the study of cancer biology as well as in clinical prognosis and treatment, In-vivo imaging has emerged as a crucial tool as it offers one-of-a-kind, cutting-edge capabilities to help with the development of protocols for cancer detection and diagnosis.

According to estimates, by 2040, there will be more than 26 million new instances of cancer annually throughout the world.

The rising trend of precision medicine is believed to fuel the market growth. Precision medicine has helped reduce superfluous, pointless testing and unnecessary hospital admissions and has led to more accurate diagnoses and forecasts of disease risk before any symptoms appear. 

Moreover, precision medicine is an effective method for examining the human body in vivo molecular imaging, which allows for more accurate diagnostics and real-time monitoring.

In-vivo Imaging Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Popularity of Minimally Invasive Procedures – Patients are becoming more and more familiar with less invasive procedures as they offer them several advantages such as less pain, and shorter hospital stays. In-vivo imaging is a non-invasive method that is becoming a crucial tool for preclinical research and can be utilized in fundamental biomedical research and clinical medicine.
  • Growing Geriatric Population- The elderly population is more prone to various age-related diseases such as cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders, which necessitates the usage of In-vivo imaging techniques for diagnosing and monitoring these conditions. Lately, more than 8% of the world's population, are over 65.


  • High Cost of Procedure – In-vivo imaging technologies involve an in-vivo microscope which can easily cost over USD 1 million, which is too expensive in several developing nations. Besides this, cost is one of the main disadvantages of micro-MRI. Systems used for animal imaging, with most systems costing more than USD 1 million.
  • Data Complexity
  • Ethical Concerns associated with Involvement of Animals

In-vivo Imaging Segmentation

Modality (Nuclear Imaging Systems, Optical Imaging Systems, Micro-MRI, Micro-Ultrasound, Micro-CT, Photoacoustic Imaging Systems, Magnetic Particle Imaging Systems)

The micro-MRI segment is estimated to hold 21% share of the global in-vivo imaging market in the coming years owing to the growing usage in small animal imaging. In vivo, 3D imaging of microstructure in small animals such as mice and rats is made easier with the use of micro-MRI since small animal models play a crucial role in cardiovascular investigation and help researchers in studying In-vivo molecular pathways in cardiovascular pathology.

Techniques (Biomarkers Based, Luminescent Proteins Based, Radioisotopes Based)

The radioisotopes based segment is set to garner a notable share shortly. Radioisotope-based based In-vivo imaging is widely used in preclinical research to study diseases in living organisms. For instance, positron emission tomography (PET) is an imaging technique that uses radioisotopes to inject a small amount of radioactive glucose into the veins of animals to study metabolic processes and more.
