Market Overview

The key factors propelling the growth of the magnetic resonance imaging market are the rising technological advancement, such as the inclusion of MRI with PET or CT, to provide imaging possibilities with less exposure to harmful radiations. The global players, such as GE, Siemens, and Philips, have an extensive hold on improving technology, as well as global distribution channels. The combination of Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) with MRI provides access to high-quality images of tissues and organ inside the body. MRI has been used with other powerful imaging techniques, such as when MRI is combined with radiography, it is used to treat infertility patients. With the inclusion of MRI with other imaging modalities, the combination provides improved quantification by MRI-based motion correction without additional radiation and lesser scanning time. Additionally, due to rising popularity of technologically advanced MRI systems such as hybrid MRI, particularly in the developed market, is expected to fuel the market. The other factors, such as increasing geriatric population and rising adoption of MRI systems are driving the African magnetic resonance imaging market.

Scope of the report

Magnetic resonance imaging is a medical imaging technique, which is used in radiology to produce pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body in both health and disease. These pictures are further used to diagnose and detect the presence of abnormalities in the body.

Key Market Trends

Oncology Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth in the Forecast Years

Based on application, the market is segmented into Oncology, Neurology, Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Musculoskeletal, and Other Applications. Oncology deals with diagnosis and treatment of tumors and cancers. According to Globocan, in 2018, among both the sexes, breast and Cervix uteri cancers are the most common cancers found in Africa, with breast cancer alone contributing to around 16% of the total new cases. Thus, there is a growing demand for better diagnostic facilities like MRI in the African countries because of the rising burden of cancer and growing aging population. Hence, rising awareness among people about early diagnosis of diseases for prevention and faster cure is expected to show better growth in the forecast period.
