The diagnostic imaging market is projected to reach US$ 53,410.59 million by 2028 from US$ 38,034.56 million in 2022; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2022 to 2028.

Technological advancements in diagnostic imaging equipment drive the market growth. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) report, diagnostic imaging has developed rapidly and plays a central role in healthcare by supporting the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Diagnostic imaging services include confirming, assessing, and documenting the course of many conditions for ultimately drawing the response to treatment. The WHO collaborates with partners and manufacturers to develop a technical solution for improving the diagnostic imaging services for patients' safety. In March 2018, GE Healthcare announced launching a new diagnostic imaging product supported by AI technology and involved in quickly capturing data and reconstructing images as the product was fast approved by the FDA. The newly launched product is efficient for fast connectivity and advanced algorithm, ensuring 48 times more data throughput and ten times the processing power of the previous system.

On the other hand, through the support of technological advancements, diagnostic imaging has played a crucial role in cancer diagnosis. For example, diagnostic imaging takes pictures inside of the body and has a pivotal role in diagnosing and managing cancer patients. The first method is the utilization of CT and MRI, which offers detailed information on the location, size, morphology, and structural changes of the surrounding tissues of the tumor. The second method is the utility of PET and SPECT, which offers insights related to tumor physiology with anatomical details. Combining these two methods enables the integration of anatomy and function in a single approach, and applying such "hybrid" imaging techniques allows the characterization of tumors at all stages. Additionally, integration of various diagnostic imaging techniques such as X-ray spectrometry-related techniques and methodologies can be deployed more efficiently intended for different interdisciplinary uses. With the advent of such advanced technologies, the global diagnostic imaging market will grow exponentially during the forecast period.

The shortage of skilled professionals and high costs of diagnostic imaging equipment hinder the growth of the diagnostic imaging market. According to a WHO report, there has been a drastic shortage of healthcare professionals or workers trained to use diagnostic imaging equipment. For example, ultrasound imaging (sonography) is considered a safe procedure with low risk for pregnant women. However, the risk may increase with unnecessary prolonged exposure to ultrasound energy or in cases of untrained healthcare professionals operating the device. Handling diagnostic imaging devices by untrained professionals could expose the fetus to prolonged and unsafe energy levels and may lead to incorrect interpretation of information by the user.

Additionally, the high cost associated with diagnostic imaging equipment further acts as a restraint on their adoption. Prices incurred by hospitals and diagnostic centers for diagnostic imaging procedures include facility and imaging equipment, technical team and support staff, and physicians to plan and interpret the studies, prepare a permanently written report, and share the study results with referring physician/provider by the technical staff. Such factors are responsible for the sluggish growth of the overall global diagnostic imaging market during the forecast period.


Regional Overview

In North America, the US holds a considerable share of the diagnostic imaging market. The uptake of diagnostic imaging in the US is high due to technological advancements in imaging modalities by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. In September 2021, FDA announced clearance for the first new significant technological advancement in computed tomography (CT) imaging. The device utilizes the emerging CT technology of photon-counting detectors to measure every individual X-ray passing through a patient's body. The FDA also reviewed a new diagnostic imaging device, "NAEOTOM Alpha," manufactured by Siemens in 2021. The FDA has approved the NAETOM Alpha through the 510 (k) premarket clearance pathway. 510 (k) is a premarket submission by the FDA demonstrating that a new device is substantially equivalent to a legally marketed predicate device. Such technological advancements in imaging modalities accelerate the uptake of diagnostic imaging in the US.

The US' aging population is also high, accelerating the demand for diagnostic imaging services. For instance, the Rural Health Information Hub report states that currently, there are more than 46 million older adults aged 65 years, and it is estimated that the number will reach 90 million by 2050. Also, between 2020 and 2030, the geriatric population is projected to increase by almost 18 million; that is, by 2030, 1 in 5 Americans is projected to be 65 years old. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report states that the aging population will account for roughly 20% of the total US population by 2030. As the US population ages, the demand for diagnostic imaging technologies is expected to rise at a high pace for diagnosing, detecting, and treating many chronic health conditions and diseases common in the aging population. These factors are expected to fuel the uptake of diagnostic imaging in the US during the forecast period.

Application Insights

Based on application, the global diagnostic imaging market is segmented into cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, neurology, obstetrics & gynecology, and others. The cardiology segment is estimated to account for the largest market share during 2022–2028. Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading cause of death (about 31%). ~92.1 million Americans suffer from at least one type of cardiovascular disease. As per the American Heart Association, CVD accounted for ~800,000 deaths in the US. Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) accounts for most cardiovascular diseases, followed by stroke and heart failure. The selection of cardiac imaging modality depends on the indication, individual patient characteristics, and local accessibility. In many cases of echocardiography, such as stress echocardiography, it provides the required clinical information and avoids radiation exposure.

Recent technological advancements in cardiac ultrasound imaging such as Tissue Doppler imaging, strain imaging, contrast echocardiography, 3D echocardiography, point-of-care echocardiography, 3D volumetric flow assessments, and elastography are expected to aid in the clinical diagnosis of many cardiovascular diseases. With these advancements, ultrasound imaging is rapidly changing the domain of cardiac imaging. Moreover, according to a recent study, the rate of c-Positron Emission Tomography (CPET) imaging in cardiology offices has increased because it enables extremely clear images of heart muscle defects and is much faster than its predecessor, single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). A PET exam is performed in ~75 seconds compared to more than an hour with SPECT. PET also uses a small, on-demand isotope generator instead of the cyclotron required by SPECT. Thus, aforementioned factors would drive the global diagnostic imaging market growth for this segment during 2022–2028.
