This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the global PET scanners market by application (oncology, cardiology, and neurology). It outlines the market shares of key regions such as the Americas, APAC, and Europe. The key vendors analyzed in this report are GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, and Philips Healthcare.

Market outlook of the PET scanners market

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global PET scanners market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. The increasing use of PET scanning for cancer diagnosis has boosted the growth of this market. The use of PET/CT imaging helps the physician to evaluate the extent of the disease, determine if the treatment is working, and detect if there are any recurrent tumors.

The growing popularity of the reimbursement scheme for  PET scanning is expected to aid the market growth over the coming four years.Medicare provides reimbursement of PET scanners with Fludeoxyglucose  (FDG), which is a radiopharmaceutical used for the detection of diseases, and it is also used to detect cancer. The reimbursement fee varies across Europe, for instance, in the UK, the reimbursement fee is around $295 while in Belgium it is around $1,096. Such appropriate reimbursements will drive the popularity of PET scanners.
