Open System MRI market Analysis

MRI is a powerful diagnostic tool which is replacing CT because of its higher sensitivity and use of non-ionizing radiations. Open MRI is the more popular one between the two available systems of MRI, open and closed. Open MRI systems have a magnetic field in the top and bottom and do not enclose the patient in a tunnel. Open MRI is used to accommodate claustrophobic, obese and pediatric patients.

Conventional MRI scanners are a cylinder shape, while an open MRI does not completely surround your body. It is usually open on two or three sides. An Open MRI provides a more relaxed, less confining environment and lower noise levels making it less stressful for you. Therefore all these factors are supporting the open system MRI market.

Open System MRI market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Open System MRI market according to our research experts:

Application in Neurology is Expected to Dominate the market

MRI is the best tool for diagnostic imaging and neuroscience research. It provides morphological images with the highest spatial resolution and unmatched soft tissue contrast, as well as the unique functional information of the central nervous system (CNS). 97% of MRI sites perform the brain examinations and 1 in 4 MRI scans is of the brain, making it one of the most commonly performed exams in neurology.

The neurological uses of MRI systems include the diagnosis of brain and spinal cord tumors, infection and vascular irregularities, which may lead to stroke. MRI can also detect the disorders, along with performing the monitoring of degenerative disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, and it can even document brain injury from trauma.

According to The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), worldwide, in 2016, there were approximately 27 million new cases of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with an age-adjusted incidence rate of 369 per 100,000, which represents a 3.6% increase from 1990. In the same year, prevalence was 55.5 million individuals, representing an 8.4% increase from 1990.

Hence, the increase prevalence of TBI have resulted in increased demand for diagnostic imaging equipment like open MRI and hence this factor is expected for the market growth.


North America is Expected to Dominate the Open System MRI Market

North America currently dominates the open system MRI market, and it is expected to continue its stronghold for a few more years. This region is expected to increase its market share in the future, owing to the well-established healthcare system of the United States and the initiatives that are being carried out by the various organizations, along with the government to promote the disease diagnosis. Siemens and Philips are the leading companies in the United States.

The average MRI scanning cost ranges between USD 650 to USD 950 based on dye being used or not. With that, the United States has the largest market share in North America, and is also expected to record a high CAGR over the forecast period.
