The global market for Nuclear Medicine Imaging Equipment is projected to reach US$2.3 billion by 2022, driven by the development of disease-specific radiopharmaceuticals, advancement in imaging technologies, and the shift towards hybrid PET/CT imaging from PET-imaging. Superior attributes of nuclear medicine over other modalities in terms of the ability to detect diseases earlier and provide better understanding of the disease pathology at the molecular level; improved imaging and disease detection; and in post-therapy evaluation of a treatmentís efficacy and to determine the disease prognosis is driving steady market adoption. The United States represents the largest market worldwide driven by growing awareness about early diagnosis, increasing incidence and prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases, and expanding applications of nuclear imaging technologies, particularly PET. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 7% through the analysis period. Growing incidence of cancer and cardiovascular diseases, increasing use of nuclear medicine data in disease diagnosis and therapy, rising investments in diagnostic centers and their upgradation, development of novel radiotracers, and emergence of new and advanced scanners represent key growth drivers in the region.
