DataM Intelligence
The Global Medical Imaging Equipment Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 5.1% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Market Overview

The global medical imaging equipment market was valued at US$ 32,244.2 million in 2018 and is forecasted to reach US$ YY million by 2029, with a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period (2022-2029).


Market Dynamics

The rising incidents of chronic diseases such as arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes is increasing the demand for medical imaging equipment.

Wearable medical imaging equipment is the newest trend in the market. For instance, the lightweight MEG was developed by researchers at the University College London and is worn like a helmet and can measure brain activity while people make natural movements such as nodding, stretching, drinking tea, and even playing ping-pong. The wearable scanner brings improved imaging possibilities to patients with disorders that cause unprompted body movements, like epilepsy.

Industry Factors

FDA is responsible for assuring the safety and effectiveness of medical devices and are classified into one of three classes, based on the risk associated with the device and controls needed to assure safety and effectiveness. Computed Tomography (CT) imaging systems fall under Class II medical devices.

The FDA regulates manufacturers of X-ray imaging devices through the Electronic Product Radiation Control (EPRC) and the medical device provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

Computed Tomography (CT) imaging systems are regulated by the FDA in two statutes, as radiation-emitting electronic products under the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act and also as medical devices under the Medical Device Amendments to the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
