This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global nuclear medicine market by product (nuclear medicine equipment market and radiopharmaceutical), by application (oncology, cardiology, and neurology), by end user (diagnostic centers, hospitals, and research centers), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). Key vendors in the market include Cardinal Health, Digirad, GE Healthcare, Lantheus Medical Imaging, and Philips Healthcare.

Overview of the global nuclear medicine market

Technavio’s market research analysts expect the global nuclear medicine market to grow at a CAGR of more than 8% during the forecast period. The high demand for single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging is one of the primary drivers for this market.  The SPECT, PET, and CT technologies and hybrid technologies play a major role in the early diagnosis and easy comprehension of various types of cancer, CVDs, and orthopedic disorders. These technologies are finding extensive usage in interventional cardiology and angioplasty procedures, where the patients are tracked with nuclear medicine in the imaging procedure. Increased awareness about SPECT/CT and PET/CT medical imaging will drive the prospects for technological progress in this market over the next four years.

As per this market research analysis, several nuclear medicine and nuclear imaging companies are forming strategic partnerships to resolve the radiopharmaceutical concerns in medical imaging and to increase their market reach. Such alliances will increase the production of radiopharmaceuticals at lower costs, thereby, boosting the growth of this market. For instance, with the strategic partnership of Piramal Imaging and ISOLOGIC Innovative Radiopharmaceuticals, ISOLOGIC received exclusive rights to manufacture, market and distribute Neuraceq (radiopharmaceutical) for PET imaging in Canada.

Segmentation by product and analysis of the nuclear medicine market

  • Nuclear medicine equipment market
  • Radiopharmaceutical   

The radiopharmaceuticals segment accounted for the largest market share during 2015 and is expected to be the fastest-growing market segment by 2020. Much of this segment’s growth can be attributed to the growing use of radioactive pharmaceutical drugs in nuclear medicine as nuclear imaging agents. The augmented usage of various medical radioisotopes such as iodine-124, copper-64, and FDG in molecular studies will boost the growth of this market during the forecast period.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the nuclear medicine market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas dominated the nuclear medicine market in 2015 and occupied around 60% of the overall market revenue. Factors such as increasing aging population, advances in technology, and the presence of favorable reimbursement policies are contributing to the market’s growth in this region. Also, the increased usage of SPECT/CT and PET/CT imaging techniques will accelerate this region’s growth during the forecast period.
