Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Type, PET-MRI monitoring kits category to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on the type, the market has been categorized into PET-CT and PET-MRI.  Among them, the PET-MRI segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the market. A PET/MRI scan is an imaging test that combines PET (positron emission tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) in one session. It creates very detailed pictures of the inside of the body. PET-MRIs are more accurate and able to find minute abnormalities, have lesser exposure to radiation, and are more convenient as it eliminates the different appointments for different procedures. These are the several factors responsible for the significant growth of the segment.

“Amongst Application, oncology monitoring kits category to hold a significant share in 2020”

Based on the application, the market has been categorized into oncology, cardiology, neurology, and others. Among them, the oncology segment holds a significant share of the market. This is mainly due to the growing applications of PET scanners in the diagnosis of various types of cancers including lumps and tumors are the factors expected to drive the segment. Moreover, the introduction of innovative technologies including computer-aided detection and computer-aided diagnosis of suspicious cancer nodules and accessing the risk of malignancy, especially in lung cancer is expected to boost the growth of the market.

“Amongst End-user, diagnostic imaging centers segment to hold a higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on the end-user, the market has been categorized into hospitals, diagnostic imaging centers, and others.  Among them, the diagnostic imaging centers segment holds a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The presence of specialized professionals along with the presence of a range of diagnostic equipment is attributed to the segmental growth of the diagnostic imaging centers in the PET scanners market. Moreover, the increasing investments in diagnostic centers are also an important factor in the growth of diagnostic centers.  For instance, Redcliffe Lifetech, a diagnostics platform, announced it has raised USD 61 million with the participation of players such as  HealthSquad, and Growth Spark Ventures, among others.

“Asia Pacific to witness the fastest growth in the market”

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The major factors such as rising medical expenditure, and increasing disposable income of people, and companies are increasing their footprints in APAC to the market growth of PET scanners in the region. For instance, in April 2020, Siemens Healthineers announced the expansion of its manufacturing facility in India. In its aim to accelerate the growth of medical devices space in the country, the company has launched its new production line (plant) for Computed Tomography Scanners at its Bengaluru facility.
