The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted businesses across the world. However, with the rising need for intensive care of these COVID-19 infected patients, the global market is likely to witness a major upsurge in the coming years, as medical imaging modalities can offer effective data on disease progression.

For example, Lucy point-of-care MRI launched by Hyperfine has the capability to scan the neck, head, and even the extremities in the clinical setting. This product can be of high importance in ICUs (intensive care units), emergency rooms, and facilities that have no access to the conventional clinical MRI.


Developed countries have been making high expenditure on the healthcare sector. Studies suggest that the U.S. spent twice the amount of expenses on healthcare as compared to other high-income countries such as Japan, Sweden, UK, and Germany, which can be attributed to the region’s rapid adoption of medical imaging technology. These are the major factors contributing heavily to the rising popularity of medical imaging techniques.

In terms of segmentation by product, the global medical imaging market from the computed tomography segment held a market share of nearly 15% in 2019.


The segmental growth can be attributed to the product efficiency as it consumes less time in scanning compared to other products. CT scan can take around 30 seconds to 5 minutes, while an MRI scan takes 15 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the body parts. Several other advantages include effective imagining of bones and soft tissues, short installation time for portable CT scanners, as well as minimal logistic issues.

With regards to the end-use spectrum, the hospital segment recorded a CAGR of over 5% through 2026, as a result of increasing adoption of accurate and efficient medical imaging devices in hospitals.


Furthermore, in order to deliver effective treatment or patient care, diagnostic imaging is significantly performed at the hospital setting, thereby expediting overall medical imaging market share.

On the regional front, the Asia Pacific medical imaging industry registered remuneration worth $8.5 billion in 2019, owing to the rapidly increasing advanced diagnostic device demand, along with a high prevalence of chronic diseases.
