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, launch of highly sensitive radionuclide imaging devices; and growing shift towards hybrid PET/CT and PET/MRI imaging. The market is also benefiting from expanding use in diagnostic applications such as bone scans, thyroid scans, myocardial perfusion scans, gated heart pool scans, hepatobiliary scans, and renal scans, among others. The single most important factor driving adoption of nuclear medicine is the ability of the technology to provide physicians better understanding of disease pathology at the molecular level. The technology is beginning to play a bigger and important role in post-therapy evaluation of a treatmentís efficacy and to determine the disease prognosis. The United States represents the largest market worldwide supported by well-developed healthcare infrastructure; growing awareness over the importance of early diagnosis, and increasing incidence and prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases among the aging population. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market led by growing population and parallel increase in healthcare burden; development of hospital and diagnostic infrastructure as measured by new establishment of diagnostic centers; and growing cost effectiveness and patient affordability of nuclear medicine.
