The global computed tomography (CT) scanners market is anticipated to record a stable growth over the coming years due to continued demand for CT systems from hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers, as a result of increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and growing emphasis on maintaining health and well-being in developing countries.
These are the latest findings of Transparency Market Research (Albany NY, USA), a market intelligence provider.
CT systems offer better image quality and high-quality spatial resolution owing to which its adoption is growing in the oncology and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. An increase in the prevalence of cancers and growing emphasis on accurate diagnosis will continue to create growth opportunities for businesses. Increasing awareness among consumers about detecting diseases at an early stage is also contributing to the growing demand for CT scanners. The industry-wide trend favoring non-invasive and minimally-invasive treatment is also contributing to the global demand for CT systems.
A key factor that is influencing demand for CT systems is the rising population of people aged 65 years and above. Globally, the percentage of baby boomers is on an increase, resulting in a spike in the demand for healthcare services. The elderly frequently need medical attention owing to which the demand for various healthcare products and services is on the rise. Hence, the increasing geriatric population will continue to influence the demand for CT scanners in hospitals, clinics and ambulatory surgical centers.
Geographically, the US remains the key to global sales of CT systems, owing to high product penetration and its robust healthcare system that focuses on early diagnosis and prevention. CT system sales in the US are anticipated to remain stable during the coming years, as a result of which North America is expected to remain a lucrative region for the CT systems market. The demand for CT systems in Western Europe is anticipated to remain steady, owing to increasing government focus on prevention rather than cure. Governments in Western Europe are emphasizing on early detection for disease mitigation, due to which the demand for diagnostics systems and devices is expected to witness an increase. This trend is also anticipated to positively impact the demand for CT scanners during the forecast period.
