With Adoption in Developing Economies, the Molecular Imaging Market Will Reach New Heights

The global Molecular Imaging Market is anticipated to value at US$ 7.3 Billion while expanding at a CAGR of 5.41% during the forecast period of 2022-2032. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing incidences of chronic illness across the globe.

Increasing demand for early detection and cost-effective diagnosis of chronic diseases along with the rising geriatric population across the globe are likely to fuel demand for the molecular imaging system. The advent of modern devices and developing healthcare infrastructure in evolving economies are some of the salient factors escalating market growth.

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases like cancer and other genetic illness are expected to propel the demand for an efficient and early disease diagnosis, which is projected to benefit the global molecular imaging market during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of molecular imaging for new applications, ongoing development and innovation in molecular imaging technologies, and developing economies are likely to provide significant opportunities for growth in the market in the coming time.

The launch of AI-based devices is projected to augment the market size in the coming time. For instance, in May 2020, Fujifilm Corporation launched AI-based technology for lung nodule detection. This technology is used to detect pulmonary nodules in chest CT scans to aid in lung cancer detection. In another instance, in November 2020, Canon Medical Systems Corporation launched One-Beat Spectral Cardiac CT, with rapid kVp switching and deep learning spectral reconstruction to acquire whole-heart spectral images in one beat. Thus, the launch of advanced products is anticipated to benefit the industry during the forecast period.

The increasing application of AI-based diagnostic equipment for the rapid detection of illnesses is anticipated to act as a significant opportunity for the global molecular imaging market during the forecast period. Players in the market are introducing AI-based equipment which will help the market in fetching significant dividends. In 2019, Siemens Healthineers introduced an ultrasound system, Acuson Redwood, which provides an imaging solution for clinical departments including cardiology, radiology, and gynecology.

However, high expenses associated with advanced molecular imaging system is projected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period. The presence of unfavorable reimbursements and lack of expertise in developing countries can hinder the market growth.
