Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026


Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a form of non-invasive nuclear medicine tomographic imaging technique that utilizes gamma rays to provide 3D information of body organs (inside view). This system uses a radioactive substance and a special camera to create 3-D pictures which display the blood flow to tissues & organs thereby assisting doctors to diagnose or monitor brain disorders, bone disorders, and heart problems. The SPECT scan integrates two technologies: computed tomography (CT) and a radioactive material (tracer). Worldwide growing geriatric population coupled with rising prevalence of chronic diseases are majorly driving the demand for SPECT systems. Furthermore, technological developments in SPECT systems, development of new radiotracers, increasing investments for the advancement of diagnostic imaging centers and increasing awareness among people about the technology is expected to assist in the market growth. On the contrary, factors such as a requirement of massive capital, the presence of alternatives like scintigraphy & positron emission tomography (PET), high operation costs, and an immature reimbursement structure are anticipated to limit the utilization of SPECT technique over the forecast period.

The standalone SPECT systems are gaining traction worldwide thereby expected to exhibit favorable market growth during the forecast period. Based on application, the oncology segment is expected to dominate the market over the next nine years owing to growing prevalence of cancer across the world. Comparatively higher adoption or utilization of SPECT technique in hospitals shall put the hospitals segment at the dominant position.

North America is likely to hold a large chunk of the market due to the presence of major market participants & sophisticated healthcare infrastructure and comparatively higher adoption of advanced nuclear medicine tomographic imaging techniques in the U.S. and Canada. Asia Pacific to witness fastest market growth in the near future attributed to growing aging population along with a surge in the incidence of chronic diseases, rising awareness about technique, and increasing healthcare spending in China, India, and Japan.
