Medical Imaging Software Market - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026


Technological advancement in imaging system, growing investments by leading market players in medical imaging market, rise in prevalence of chronic diseases leading to increased demand of diagnostic devices and the rise in demand for computer-aided diagnosis have collaboratively contributed to the growth of medical imaging software market. Medical imaging software aid in forming the exact pictorial representation of the scans, which eases medical investigation and diagnostic proceedings. As suitable imaging software’s helps in advancement of patient care and eases out operation procedurals.

Advent of 3D and 4D imaging techniques has flourished the growth of this market. Of the various image types analysed, 3D imaging accounted for largest market share in 2017 and expected to grow with similar trend through 2026. 3D imaging finds major application in ultrasound imaging, MRI, and radiography. With advancement in technology, the devices are now integrated with advanced software that present enhanced images. For instance, the Onsight3D Extremity System’s software by Carestream Health increases the contrast of the soft tissues and declines the visibility of appearing metal artefacts. This device currently scans only extremities and is being developed to scan 3D images of other areas of the body. Constant enhancements in devices would increase the demand for medical imaging software thus catalysing the overall market growth. However, high cost of imaging devices with enhanced software and the need for skilled professional to use these software could hinder the growth of overall medical imaging software market.

Of the geographies studied, North America dominated the overall market in 2017, while Asia Pacific will grow at fastest CAGR during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. The rise in healthcare expenditure, continuous investment in research & development and government support regulating the device approvals & providing funds for development primarily facilitate the growth of medical imaging software’s in North America. Additionally, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, which has led to increase in diagnosis rates and the awareness of availability of advanced medical imaging tools, has catalysed the North American market growth.
