Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn - Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is rapidly emerging as an alternative to traditional ionizing diagnostic techniques such as CT, X-Ray and ultrasound. Continuous advancements in technology, superior imaging capabilities, an aging population, increasing incidence of chronic diseases, growing use of hybrid modalities with MRI, and rising demand in emerging markets represent major factors driving growth in the market. The non-ionizing nature of MRI allows its safe use in high-risk pediatric patients and patients with metal implants. The technology also enables anatomic as well as functional imaging thus encouraging its use in perfusion and diffusion imaging.

The relatively lower penetration of the technology juxtaposed with rising healthcare awareness and growing physician preference for MRI systems will help spur growth in developing markets. Other factors driving growth in these markets include rising income, robust development of the healthcare infrastructure, increasing per capita healthcare spending, and easy access to affordable healthcare. In the developed markets, replacement demand is expected to spur growth. Expanding applications of MRI in diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease will also help drive growth in the coming years. Despite the opportunities for growth, the market will face challenges such as decreasing reimbursements rates in developed markets such as the United States, and high equipment cost.

As stated by the new market research report on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Equipment, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 8.1% over the analysis period. Increased government funding, supporting the development of the healthcare infrastructure in countries such as China and India, represents a major factor driving growth in the region. China, particularly, is expected to corner a major share of the global market in the coming years, led by increasing number of hospitals and diagnostic centers, as well as growing awareness over available healthcare options and advanced diagnostic technologies.

Major players covered in the report include China Resources Wandong Medical Equipment Co., Ltd., Esaote SPA, FONAR Corporation, GE Healthcare, Hitachi Medical Corporation, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, and Toshiba Medical Systems Corp., among others.
