is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7%, during 2017 – 2023.
According to the study, the global vascular imaging systems market is likely to grow significantly, during the forecast period, due to increasing healthcare expenditure, increasing prevalence of cancer and cardiovascular diseases and rising awareness about imaging techniques due to various conferences and seminars. In addition, growing geriatric population and launch of technologically advanced products contribute to the growth of the market. High cost, stringent regulatory requirements, shortage of helium for magnetic resonance imaging and increasing risk of cancer due to exposure to radiations are the key factors restraining the global market growth.
Geographically, North America has been the largest market for vascular imaging systems, where the U.S. has been the largest contributor to the regional market. Increasing awareness about imaging techniques has been driving the growth of the North American market. In Europe, Germany has been the largest contributor to the market, followed by the U.K. and France. Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, during 2017 – 2023, owing to increasing prevalence of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
