GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Computed Tomography (CT) Scanners market. Global installed base of CT Scanners is projected to exceed 67 thousand units by 2017, driven by the growing healthcare sector in developing countries and continued replacement of single-slice and obsolete CT scanners by multi-slice machines with advanced capabilities.

Computed Tomography (CT) Scanners: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The CT scanners market has undergone a noticeable change over the years with new and sophisticated technologies replacing the obsolete ones. Advanced high-slice CT scanners now offer faster imaging and enhanced imaging area compared to former counterparts. The next generation of Computed Tomography (CT) Scanners holds the potential to offer higher resolution cardiovascular and neurology images. Incorporation of larger detectors enables imaging of more anatomy of the organ such as whole heart or brain with higher resolution. The market continues to remain dynamic as CT scanner vendors divert focus from increasing slices to fundamental application challenges such as functional imaging with organ perfusion and tissue characterization, dose management, dual energy techniques, and advanced visualisation. Companies are also gearing up towards development of cone beam artifact reduction technologies that reduces radiation dosage and offer larger coverage. Another evolutionary platform is development of systems with multi-energy detector that can scan tissues at various energy levels simultaneously. A key trend evident in the CT segment is development of hybrid scanners comprising positron emission tomographs (PET) and CT technologies. With the combination of CT that offers anatomical information, precise details on the patient condition can be obtained, that helps in oncology treatment management.

As stated by the new market research report on Computed Tomography (CT) Scanners, the US continues to remain the largest regional market. Developing countries across the world, led by the BRIC nations, are emerging as lucrative markets for CT scanners. Currently low CT scanners installation rate of less than 5 units per million people in some of the developing countries underlines the significant potential for CT scanner manufacturers. Rapid economic development is resulting in growing affluence in these countries, thereby expanding the population base, which can access and afford costly healthcare processes. In addition, increased focus on healthcare initiatives by governments is also likely to bolster the medical imaging equipment market in these countries.

Key players profiled in the report include GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, Toshiba Medical Systems, Philips Healthcare, Hitachi Medical Corporation and Shimadzu Medical Systems.

The research report titled "Computed Tomography (CT) Scanners: A Global Strategic Business Report" announced by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., provides a comprehensive review of trends, issues, strategic industry activities, and profiles of major companies worldwide. The report provides market estimates and projections in terms of installed base for global and regional markets including the US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan), Latin America, and Rest of World. Product Segments analyzed include Single-Slice and Multi-Slice CT Scanners.
