Driving Factors

The increasing demand for cutting-edge imaging modalities by teaching hospitals and universities to provide advanced technical training is projected to influence market growth in the future substantially. Further AI usage to automate picture quantification and identification will drive market expansion. For example, Google's AI platform, Deep Mind, cooperated with Moorfields Eye Hospital to analyze all optical CT scanner eye scans to ensure early identification of age-related macular degeneration. Furthermore, the emergence of 3D MRI and CT scans allows radiologists to analyze images more quickly, lowering analysis time and enhancing efficacy. Furthermore, computer vision is being utilized to identify problems that the human eye cannot see. Also, the chance of acquiring illnesses rises proportionally with age. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 80% of the elderly in the United States have at least one chronic illness. According to the American Medical Association (AMA), at least 60% of people aged 65 and over would have more than one chronic illness by 2030. As a result, there is an increase in the older population is predicted to boost demand for enhanced and sophisticated diagnostic treatment choices and diagnostic imaging services.


Restraining Factors

Diagnostic imaging devices are expensive and need significant upfront investment. Healthcare institutions, mainly outpatient imaging centers, that acquire such expensive systems sometimes rely on third-party payers to recoup the expenses of diagnostics, screening, and treatments conducted with these systems. As a result, factors such as continuous cuts in diagnostic imaging scan reimbursements and the rising cost of diagnostic imaging systems prevent small and medium-sized imaging facilities from investing in technologically advanced diagnostic imaging modalities, stifling the growth of the services market.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the X-Ray imaging segment is dominating the market with the largest market share during the forecast period.

Based on modality, the global medical imaging services market is segmented into different segments such as X-Ray imaging, MRI, ultrasound, computed tomography, nuclear imaging, and mammography. Among these segments, the X-Ray imaging segment has the biggest revenue share over the predicted period due to factors such as the increased frequency of lung ailments, dental problems, and bone fractures that have hastened the use of X-ray imaging treatments. Furthermore, the increasing use of digital X-rays and continued technological advances in X-ray imaging are expected to accelerate its acceptance. Moreover, X-ray is one of the most often used major medical imaging modalities for a variety of tests and surgeries. This service provides noninvasive illness diagnosis and monitoring, as well as surgical treatment planning support.


  • In 2022, the neurology segment is influencing the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on application, the global medical imaging services market is segmented into cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, gynecology, oncology, and others. Throughout these segments, the neurology segment is leading the market due to rising senior populations and rising occurrences of brain traumas and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD) are expected to boost category growth globally. According to the Alzheimer's Association, an estimated 6.5 million persons aged 65 and older in the United States will have Alzheimer's dementia in 2022, with the figure anticipated to rise to 12.7 million by 2050. Furthermore, an increase in research efforts in the MRI Imaging sector, as well as the approval of novel MRI techniques for the diagnosis of brain illnesses, are projected to add to the segment's growth.


  • In 2022, the hospitals segment is dominating the market with the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on end users, the global medical imaging services market is classified into different segments such as hospitals, diagnostic centers, clinics, & ambulatory surgical centers. Among these segments, the hospital's segment has the biggest revenue share over the forecast period due to rising demand for advanced imaging modalities, as well as the integration of surgical suites with imaging technologies, which are boosting the industry. Some affluent nations have seen a significant increase in demand for these modalities in teaching hospitals as compared to general or specialty hospitals.
