Market Driver:

Rising Number of Premature Births and Pediatric Diseases Drives Pediatric MRI Market Growth

Preterm babies are born alive before the completion of 37 weeks of pregnancy. Most preterm births occur in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. Several factors such as multiple pregnancies, infections, and chronic conditions can lead to preterm birth, and it has become a global issue in the last few years. Preterm birth can restrict the growth of babies. As per the report by the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 15 million preterm babies are born every year. The report also stated that ~184 countries have a 5–18% preterm birth rate of born babies, and over 60% of preterm births are recorded in Asia Pacific and Africa. Also, every year, ~1 million babies die due to preterm birth complications. Preterm birth complications are the leading cause of death in children under the age of five and were responsible for ~900,000 deaths in 2019. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of 2021, approximately one in ten children born in the US were affected by preterm birth. The preterm birth rate increased by 4% in 2021, from 10.1% in 2020 to 10.5% in 2021. Per the WHO, the preterm birth rate ranged from 4% to 16% of babies born in 2020.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a valuable tool that helps monitor the development of a preterm brain. The imaging modality helps assess numerous pathologies, such as periventricular leukomalacia, intraventricular hemorrhage, and periventricular hemorrhagic infarction. According to a study, “MRI Identifies Markers of Atypical Brain Development in Children Born Preterm,” published in the Radiological Society of North America, premature babies that develop autism, cerebral palsy, and other abnormalities as teenagers have minimal differences in their brain structures that can be detected with the help of quantitative MRI (qMRI). As per the WHO, in 2019, ~5.2 million children under five years died from preventable and treatable illnesses. Children under five years are vulnerable to infectious diseases such as malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia, HIV, and tuberculosis. According to UNICEF, pneumonia is the leading infectious cause of death in children under five, which is a major cause of death of ~700,000 children annually. However, these conditions are preventable or treatable with timely diagnosis.

Thus, the increasing cases of preterm births and rising prevalence of pediatric diseases are boosting the adoption of pediatric MRI, which is driving the market growth.

Segmental Analysis:

Based on type, the pediatric MRI market is segmented into functional brain MRI (fMRI), cardiac MRI, 4D MRI, and others. The functional brain MRI (fMRI) segment held the largest share of the pediatric MRI market in 2022. However, the 4D MRI segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during 2022–2028. The market growth for the segment is attributed to the increasing preterm birth and increasing incidence of traumatic brain injuries across the world. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) focuses exclusively on the brain and records metabolic activity over time. fMRI measures the minor changes in blood flow that occurs with brain activity. It inspects the brain's functional anatomy, checks the effects of strokes and other diseases, and guides brain treatment. fMRI has also improved researchers' understanding of developmental routes in children and the plasticity of neural networks in disease states. On the other hand, 4D medical imaging techniques improve the performance of MRI beyond three dimensions by incorporating time information. Children suffering from pulmonary hypertension have a risk of cardiac events every time they undergo catheterization. 4D MRI allows the comprehensive evaluation of complex blood flow patterns and flexible retrospective quantification of flow parameters.
