Medical Imaging Market Highlights

Medical imaging software supports processing and producing high-resolution images of the internal body parts of a human for disease diagnosis and treatment. The emergence of 3D and 4D imaging technologies, increasing the prevalence of geriatric population and subsequent growth in the incidence of cardiac, and neurological diseases including cancer, growing government funding’s for development of medical diagnostics field are some factors that are anticipated to drive the market growth during the assessment period.  Additionally, a rise in the number of diagnostic centres and increased healthcare expenditure is likely to contribute to market growth. As per the data by the Office for National Statistics, in 2016, the gross domestic expenditure on research and development (R&D) was Euro 33.1 billion (USD 35.2 billion) in the UK. However, the high cost of equipment related to clinical validation and lack of skilled professionals may hamper the market growth during the assessment period.

The medical Imaging software market size is projected to reach USD 2,899.61 Million by 2030 at 7.60% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030.
