Diagnostic Imaging Market Dynamics

As per the report by Market Research Future (MRFR), the diagnostic imaging market is speculated to surge at a CAGR of 6.2 during the forecast period (2018–2023).

Diagnostic Imaging Market Growth Drivers and Key Challenges

One of the prominent factors driving the growth of the diagnostic imaging market is the expanding geriatric population. This is due to the fact that the elderly populace constantly requires extensive care owing to their susceptibility to illness backed by low immunity levels and high recovery time. Since the bones at an advanced age are more fragile and less dense because of the loss in mineral content of bones, elderly people are more prone to chronic diseases like neurological disorders, cancer, as well as cardiovascular diseases, resulting in the growing demand for better diagnosis and therapies.

Moreover, diagnostic centers are one of the largest end-users of diagnostic imaging systems. The increasing number of diagnostic centers goes hand in hand with the increasing demand for diagnostic imaging systems. Various types of diagnostic imaging tools like ultrasound, MRI, nuclear imaging, CT, and X-ray are used to diagnose numerous disorders or abnormalities in the human body.

Besides, expanding healthcare infrastructure and subsequently increasing healthcare expenditure, along with growing healthcare awareness around the world are resulting in the augmented number of diagnostic centers. This factor is benefitting the growth of the diagnostic imaging market to a large extent.
