Multimodal imaging is a technology that combines the innate advantages of the fused imaging technologies synergistically, to form more powerful imaging modality. This modality has the capability to generate high resolution images with high sensitivity for accurate diagnosis. The process combines techniques such as such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET) to accurately identify and characterize the diseased and the normal tissues.

Based on technology, PET/CT systems are cited as the most efficient diagnostic tools with its capabilities extended beyond treatment with the delivery of targeted therapies as well. The technique produces higher resolution images with the high-definition and accuracy. Also, this technology has shortened acquisition times and improved the dose management as compared to standalone procedures. In this way, this technology has boosted the ability to improve localization of lesions and overall clinical confidence in routine scans and research applications leading to market growth.

Based on application, clinical applications segment commanded the largest share of the global multimodal imaging market. The high share of this segment is attributed to large volume of diagnostic procedures performed for detection of various diseases, high incidence of chronic illness, and incessant technological advancements in the equipment used for the detection of such diseases. Oncology is the fastest growing segment attributed to rising aging population, growing number of cases & deaths associated with cancer, and technological advancements in oncology imaging products.

Based on end users, hospitals were the largest end users of multimodal imaging products mainly due to high volume of diagnostic procedures being performed in the hospitals.

Growing prevalence of chronic illness is propelling the growth of multimodal imaging systems market

According to the United Nations, in 2017, population aged 60 years or over reached 962 million, which is expected to increase to 2.1 billion by 2050. Also, the number of people aged 80 years or above is projected to increase threefold between 2017 and 2050, rising from 137 million to 425 million. Also, according to Canadian Cancer Society, in Canada, it is estimated that by 2030, new cancer cases are expected to increase by about 40%. It is projected that by 2030, ~77,000 people will be diagnosed with cancer each year.

The multimodal imaging systems play an important role in addressing the issues for the treatment of chronically ill and aged population. The multimodal imaging is used in early detection of disease in areas such as oncology, neurology, cardiology, urology, and more. Multimodal imaging is widely used in the detection of tumor lesions for precise delivery of therapy.

Significant opportunities from developing economies support the market growth

According to Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), health expenditure ($/capita) is consistently growing in developing regions. The growing health expenditure is a positive indicator for any medical device market including multimodal imaging systems. Also, according to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and National Venture Capital Association, the corporate funding by established biopharmaceutical companies in emerging biotechnology firms has increased from $533 million in 2006 to $1,239 million in 2015. Therefore, owing to aforementioned reasons, the adoption of advanced tools and equipment including multimodal imaging systems for diagnostic and research applications is increasing in developing regions.
