Market Overview

The major factors for the growth of the Europe diagnostic imaging equipment market include the increase in the geriatric population and rising prevalence of chronic diseases, technological advancement in imaging modalities, and rising adoption of medical imaging devices.

The increase in geriatric population and rising prevalence of chronic diseases is one of the major factor boosting the growth of the market. According to the estimates of the World Aging Report 2017, published by the United Nations, in Germany, approximately 28.0% of the population was aged 60 years, and over in 2017, this number is expected to be 37.6% till 2050. Furthermore, As per the data published by the Office for National Statistics, around 18.2% of the United Kingdom population were aged 65 years or over at mid-2017, and this is projected to grow to 20.7% by 2027. Thus, the rising aging population is expected to increase the prevalence of various chronic diseases resulting in the high demand of the medical imaging devices. For instance, according to the estimates of the Globocan, in 2018, there will be 446,942 new cancer cases in the United Kingdom. While, prostate, breast, lung, colon, and skin cancer are the most common types of cancer detected in the UK.

Key Market Trends

MRI is the Segment by Product Type is expected to witness Fastest Growth over the Forecast Period.

The MRI market is also increasing due to the usage of MRI imaging scans in chronic disease. For instance, a team of researchers from Heidelberg University Hospital and the German Cancer Research Centre has developed a new automated image analysis of brain tumor. The researchers have also shown that machine learning methods trained on standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are more reliable and precise than the traditional radiological methods in the treatment of brain tumors. One of the essential criteria for the assessment of the efficacy of a new therapy for the brain tumors is the growth dynamic which can be analyzed by the MRI Scans. Furthermore, as per the survey of MRI scanners conducted across the NHS by the Clinical Imaging Board in 2017, it was found that 58% of MRI systems were over five years old and 29% were more than 10 years old. There were 40 MRI units ordered from October 2017 to March 2018, compared with the 65 MRI units during the same period in previous year. Thus, owing to the rising applications of MRI systems the market is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period.
