Medical imaging equipment helps in diagnosing various complex diseases such as
chromosomal abnormalities, atherosclerosis and Parkinson's disease. This
equipment utilizes energy waves to produce 2-D and 3-D images of human organs.
With rise in incidences of various diseases such as cardiovascular diseases
(CVD), brain disorders, oral conditions such as gingivitis, and lung
disorders, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% during the
forecast period of 2013 to 2019.

According to an estimate of the World Health Organization (WHO), around 8.7
million people suffered from tuberculosis (TB) in 2011 worldwide and around
23.3 million people will die due to CVDs. Growth of this market will also be
supported by the increasing geriatric population worldwide because elderly
people are highly susceptible to various diseases such as osteoporosis, stroke
and CVDs. Equipment such as nuclear imaging devices and computed tomography
(CT) scanners help in diagnosing these diseases precisely within a short span
of time. Moreover, introduction of various technologically advanced products
such as handheld X-ray machines and upright MRI scanners will also augment
growth of this market. This is attributed mainly to increase in their
utilization in various medical institutes, such as hospitals and diagnostic
labs, since they reduce installation cost and also provide convenience of use.

Likewise, support from various private and government bodies will also trigger
the growth of this market. For instance, the U.S. government introduced the
Medicare Benefit Schedule (MBS) in 2011 which provides rebates for different
categories of items including medical devices. However, imposition of excise
tax on the sale of medical devices by the manufacturers and low adoption rate
in patients for conventional MRI and CT scanners will hamper the growth of
this market. According to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
(PPACA) of the U.S., medical device manufacturers are expected to pay an
additional medical device excise tax (MDET) of 2.3% on the sale of every
device.

The CT scanners and nuclear imaging equipment market segments are expected to
show the highest growth among all market segments due to their capability to
diagnose large number of diseases effectively in less time. The market for CT
scanners was valued at USD 4.35 billion and that for nuclear imaging equipment
was value at USD 1.47 billion, in 2012. Both these market segments are
expected to show growth at a CAGR of over 5% each.

Geographically, the North American region constituted the largest share by
revenue for medical imaging equipment in the year 2012; however, Asia-Pacific
is predicted to foresee the highest growth rate of over 7% from 2013 to 2019.
This is attributed to rise in geriatric population, and improving healthcare
infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, the favorable
demand-supply gap for diagnostic services in this region will also propel the
growth of this market.

The global medical imaging equipment market is dominated by players such as GE
Healthcare, Toshiba America Medical System, Philips Healthcare, Shimadzu
Corporation., Siemens Healthcare and Hitachi Medical Corporation. The market
is highly oligopolistic in nature with the top three players accounting for
about 50% of the global market revenue.
