The global positron emission tomography (PET) scanners market growth was valued at over US$ 1.2 Bn in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of close to 5.1% over the forecast period.
By product, full-ring PET scanner is expected to hold over 86.2% of the total market share by 2031.
Sales in the oncology segment accounted for over 85.2% of market share in 2020, owing to the increasing incidence of chronic diseases and cancer.
Based on detector type, demand in the lutetium oxyorthosilicate (LSO) segment to held over 37.3% of market share in 2020.
Hospitals dominate end user segment with a share of around 34.9% in 2020 due to increasing patient inflow after COVID-19 outbreak.
The concept of PET as a nuclear medicine imaging technology was established in early 1970s. Ever since the technology has evolved into routine clinical imaging modality, revolutionizing the process of diseases diagnosis and management into more effective fashion.
PET is a molecular imaging technology that detects the concentration and pharmacokinetics of radiotracer molecules that are labelled with radioisotopes. This helps to diagnose and determine the severity of a various diseases such as neurological disorders, cardiovascular disorders, cancer, gastrointestinal and various others.
Based on the operational and geometrical capabilities of PET scanners, the systems are classified as full ring PET systems and partial ring PET systems. Advancements in technological performance of these systems are always associated with higher cost, limiting its widespread utilization in clinical PET imaging.
Rising prevalence of chronic disorders such as cancer and cardiovascular disorders, coupled with greater awareness towards physical wellbeing and limitations of conventional PET scanner is spurring demand for effective diagnostic techniques, thereby augmenting growth of the market.
PET scanners have continued to improve image quality and performance over the last few years. Technological improvements such as managing dose, reduced imaging time and enhanced lesion detectability have increased PET’s functionality, thus making it easier to interpret and diagnose various life-threatening disorders.
