APAC Nuclear Imaging Market Projected to Grow at CAGR of 8.9%

GlobalData projects this growth to occur between 2019 and 2028 

Nuclear imaging equipment growth in 2020

February 14, 2020 — The nuclear imaging equipment market in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9 percent from US$0.7B in 2019 to US$1.5B by 2028, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

China will be by far the fastest growing country in the region growing at a CAGR of 11.0 percent between 2019 and 2028, which is closely followed by the fastest growing markets: India, South Korea and Japan, respectively.

The company’s report, ‘Nuclear Imaging Equipment – Diagnostic Imaging Market Analysis and Forecast Model’ states that while inclination toward non-invasive disease diagnosis will be the main market driver, the increased aging population with cardiac and neurological ailments and growing cancer patients in both younger and older population will propel the market during the forecast period.


Sirivolu Manasa, medical devices analyst at GlobalData, commented: “GE Healthcare has remained as the market leader in APAC due to its innovation of advanced technologies by acknowledging the requirements of the patients. Regional companies like Canon Medical Systems Corp and Neusoft Medical Systems have also established themselves as competitors in this space apart from the other global manufacturers such as Siemens Healthineers AG and Philips Healthcare.”


In the APAC region, positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) systems are the major revenue contributors within CT systems, with their market growing at a CAGR of 8.8 percent between 2019 and 2028, followed by single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT /CT) systems.


Manasa concluded: “The technological advancements in the medical field will have a positive impact on the growth of nuclear imaging equipment market. The demand for the products required specifically for each of the vital organs will help physicians make more accurate clinical decisions enhancing patient safety, driving the market forward.”

Indeterminate lesion on PET/CT classified by PET/MRI for 53-y-old man with lung cancer.

Indeterminate lesion on PET/CT classified by PET/MRI for 53-y-old man with lung cancer. Contrast-enhanced CT (A), PET (B), and fused 18F-FDG PET/CT (C) images are displayed in comparison with contrast-enhanced T1-weighted MRI (D), PET, and fused 18F-FDG PET/MRI (F) images. In CT (A), hyperdense, subcentimeter liver lesion (arrows) in segment VII is suggestive of transient hepatic attenuation difference or small hemangioma. As malignancy cannot be excluded, it needs further investigation. On PET/MRI, lesion is clearly classified as metastasis because of contrast enhancement and tracer uptake due to later acquisition time point. Follow-up CT confirmed diagnosis after 78 d.
