Diagnostic Imaging is a technique used to examine the internal environment of the body. It helps in diagnosis and monitoring the progression of diseases. The evolution of diagnostic imaging techniques, has played a vital role in the development of healthcare industry. The diagnostic imaging market is flourished by innovations, such as ultra-fast and digital devices. It is yet imperative to find better economic alternatives which would help in the early diagnosis of disease. The major factors driving the global diagnostic imaging market are higher incidences of cardiovascular, oncology and other diseases, higher disposable incomes, increasing awareness and education. Rising number of diagnostic centres, hospitals and emergence of ambulatory devices have opened lucrative opportunities in the diagnostic imaging market. However, the high cost of treatment, lack of skilled workforce, and obscure reimbursement scenario across the globe, are likely to restrict the market growth.
The global diagnostic Imaging market is segmented on the basis of technology, type, application and geography. According to technology, the market is segmented into Radiography Equipment, Computed Tomography (CT) Scanners, Ultrasound Systems, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Systems, Nuclear Imaging Equipment, Fluoroscopy, and Mammography. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into Fixed devices, and Ambulatory devices. The market is segmented on the basis of application into Oncology, Cardiovascular, Neurovascular, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Emergency Medicine and Others. Geographically, the market is segmented across four regions namely North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and LAMEA.
Few of the strategies adopted by key industry players are geographical expansion and new product launch. For instance, Toshiba Medical Systems, in Feb. 2015, has launched a subsidiary in Malaysia. The subsidiary would establish the first manufacturing base for diagnostic imaging systems in Malaysia. In March 2015, Siemens Healthcare launched, Acuson P500, an ultrasound system particularly useful for emergency medicine, acute care and general imaging. The companies profiled in this report include, Koninklijke Philips N.V., GE Healthcare, Siemens AG, Medtronic plc, Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation, Hitachi Medical Corporation, Shimadzu Corporation, Zeihm Imaging Inc. and Varian Medical Systems Inc.
