This market research study identifies Digirad, GE Healthcare, Mediso, Koninklijke Philips, and Siemens Healthcare as the leading players in the global nuclear imaging market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (cardiology, oncology, neurology, and others), by product (standalone PET nuclear imaging, standalone SPECT nuclear imaging, and hybrid nuclear imaging), by end-user (hospitals, diagnostic centers, and research centers), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global nuclear imaging market

Research analysis on the global nuclear imaging market identifies that the major shift towards the hybrid nuclear imaging will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 6% by 2021. Hybrid imaging technology has many benefits such as early diagnosis, accurate disease staging, and effective response to the treatment of chronic conditions such as cancer. CT/MRI was integrated with positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) to perform improved nuclear imaging procedures and find the exact location of lesions and chronic disorders. Computed tomography (CT) improves the accuracy of PET and SPECT and enables the imaging of both functional and anatomical aspects of the human system.

The rising prevalence of chronic disorders such as cardiac, neurology, orthopedic, and other disorders is driving growth in the global nuclear imaging market in the Americas. This in turn, will boost the demand for nuclear imaging, especially hybrid imaging systems in the region. The market will continue to grow in the region during the estimated period because the majority of installations of PET/CT, SPECT/CT, PET/MRI, and SPECT/MRI systems are witnessed in the US.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The nuclear imaging market is concentrated and dynamic due to the presence of key players.  These vendors are increasingly competing against each other based on factors such as price, performance, innovations, image resolution, advertising, distribution, and brand image. Vendors are trying to sustain in this competitive market by investing heavily in research and developmental activities. They are focusing on developing novel nuclear imaging systems and updating and expanding their existing product portfolio.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Digirad
  • GE Healthcare
  • Mediso
  • Koninklijke Philips
  • Siemens Healthcare

Other prominent vendors in the market include Advanced Accelerator Applications, Agfa-Gevaert, BC Technical, CardiArc, Cardinal Health, Carestream Health, CMR Naviscan, Cubresa, DDD-Diagnostic, Eczacibasi-Monrol Nuclear Products, FMI Medical Systems, FUJIFILM Holdings, MiE America, MILabs, NeuroLogica, Neusoft Medical Systems, Photo Diagnostic Systems, RadioMedix, Sofie Biosciences, Spectrum Dynamics Medical, SynchroPET, and Toshiba Medical Systems.

Segmentation by product and analysis of the nuclear imaging market

  • Standalone PET nuclear imaging
  • Standalone SPECT nuclear imaging
  • Hybrid nuclear imaging

The application of nuclear imaging instruments in the diagnosis and treatment of many heart diseases is increasing due to the prevalence of cardiac diseases. The most common type of heart disease is coronary heart disease. Nuclear imaging instruments such as hybrid imaging systems, PET, and SPECT imaging are used to diagnose coronary artery disease, detect heart transplant rejection, identify right heart failure, measure chemotherapy cardiac toxicity, evaluate valvular heart disease, measure effectiveness of therapy to detect heart failure, etc. .

Segmentation by end-user and analysis of the nuclear imaging market

  • Hospitals
  • Diagnostic centers
  • Research centers

The majority of patients prefer hospitals over other healthcare units because multispecialty hospitals are well equipped with gamma cameras, PET, SPECT, and hybrid nuclear imaging systems. The hospital's segment will continue to grow for the next four years because they offer medical assistance using the most advanced technologies for the diagnosis of cancers and other disorders.
