Market Trends of Asia-Pacific Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the APAC Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Market according to our research experts:

Oncology Segment is Expected to Witness a Healthy Growth in Coming Years

Oncology is predicted to have considerable development in the country due to an increase in cancer incidence and technical advancements in the field of image diagnostics. According to statistics published by the Global Cancer Observatory (Globocan) in 2021, there were an estimated 206.60 million prevalent cases of cancer in five years for all types of cancer in both sexes in Asia during the year 2020. It was also reported that there are 9.73 million five-year prevalent cases of all types of cancer in males and about 10.86 million cases in females for the same year. Such a high prevalence of cancer in the region is generating the need for early diagnosis of cancer and thus driving the growth of the market.

Several key market players focusing on research and development of diagnostic imaging in Asia-Pacific are also aiding the growth of the market. For instance, in August 2021, Concord Medical Services Holdings Limited, which operates an extensive network of radiotherapy and diagnostic imaging centers in China, reported an investment of RMB 400.0 million (USD 62.2 million) in Concord Medical's subsidiary, Meizhong Jiahe Medical Science & Technology Development Group Co., Ltd. Additionally, in April 2022, Fujitsu and the Southern Tohoku General Hospital reported the launch of a joint research project with Fujitsu Japan Limited and FCOM Corporation on an AI technology for the early detection of pancreatic cancer from computed tomography (CT) scans without contrast agents (non-contrast CT scans).

Hence, an increased prevalence of cancer and the implementation of new technologies, along with research and development activities, are expected to help this segment register notable growth.

China is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

China is expected to grow quickly because chronic diseases are becoming more common, the number of older people is growing, and more advanced medical imaging equipment is being used.

More and more new products are being released and more money is being raised by Chinese diagnostic imaging companies.For instance, in August 2022, United Imaging Healthcare of Shanghai raised USD 1.6 billion on the very first day of its initial public offering as a public company. With the huge amount raised by United Imaging Healthcare of Shanghai, it is believed that the company will be investing a significant amount in innovative technologies, market expansion, or new product launches, which will ultimately contribute to the market's growth in the coming years.

Furthermore, there have been new facilities planned to become operational in the coming years in China, which will boost market growth. For example, Peking University announced in November 2022 that the National Biomedical Imaging Center, based in Beijing, will open in early 2023, with a construction area of 66,667 square feet.Peking University also stated that USD 237.33 million has been invested in this project. Hence, with such huge investments in medical imaging facilities, the market for diagnostic imaging equipment will be growing significantly over the forecast period in China.

Furthermore, Mindray, a global leader in the development and delivery of medical devices and solutions, announced the launch of its new general imaging, women's healthcare, and cardiology ultrasound solutions in May 2021.The Chinese company Mindray, with the launch of General Imaging Solutions, is contributing to the growth of the diagnostic imaging market in the country.

Furthermore, the increasing burden of neurological conditions in China is associated with the high demand for diagnostic imaging. For instance, Alzheimer's Association data published in November 2021 stated that the cost associated with dementia is on the rise in China and that the disease is posing a significant burden on the country's health system.

Thus, owing to the growing number of geriatrics in China, increasing investment in diagnostic imaging and new product launches are some of the crucial factors responsible for the market's growth.
