About the Market

The diagnostic imaging techniques market is driven by the growing awareness among people about early disease diagnosis, improving healthcare expenditure in emerging markets, and a high number of ongoing research activities across the globe. Globally, among the diagnostic imaging techniques, ultrasound is the most frequently used procedure, followed by X-ray, CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine, making diagnostic imaging the highest shareholder in the market. The high cost of diagnostic imaging systems, imposition of excise tax on the sale of medical devices and risk of radiation exposure, limiting the usage of certain diagnostic imaging systems, are factors hampering market growth. The Asian and Latin American countries represent the fastest growing markets due to enhanced government support and rising industrial and academic partnerships for pre-clinical research. Factors such as economic slowdown and pricing pressures may compel companies to focus on the Asian markets. Analogic Corporation, GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, Toshiba Medical Systems are some key players.

About the Geography

Saudi Arabia is a monarchical state with large oil reserves and is one of the leading members of OPEC. It is an oil-based economy and the government controls most major economic activities. Due to the low oil prices, the government is focusing on expanding its healthcare, education, nuclear, construction, and tourism industries. It is the third largest recipient of FDI in western Asia.

Saudi Arabia has a stable economy, a large local market with a high spending capacity, sound infrastructure, and a well-regulated banking system. Political and social tensions along with the policy of “Saudisation”, which favors domestic labor, have been major obstacles to FDI. Laws regarding intellectual property are not transparent and the laws enforce segregation of sexes in most business and social settings. To attract investors, the government recently announced the opening of the retail and wholesale sectors to 100% foreign ownership. Extensive privatization programs and controlled inflation add to the reasons for FDI. Investors can form joint stock companies, branch offices, and limited liability partnerships only, as a foreigner is not allowed to conduct business as a sole proprietor in Saudi Arabia.

The government also encourages companies to hire local women to improve workplace sex ratios.
