South American Open System MRI Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% to reach $114.57 million by 2021.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. This prevents the patients becoming Claustrophobic. There is a study which shows that one in every 6 patients suffers from claustrophobia hence the open system is preferred and is fast replacing the closed system.
South American countries like Argentina, Brazil and Chile have an emerging economy. The healthcare setup is improving and becoming more affordable making advanced diagnostic procedures like MRI more affordable. The awareness and importance of early diagnosis of diseases like cancer has increased increasing the demand for the Open MRI system, one of the more popular MRI procedures. The rise aging population and the increase in incidence of diseases are also drivers of the market. The market can be segmented based on the resolution (low-field, mid-field and high field), the applications (Neurology, Cardiology, Gastroenterology and Oncology) and geographically (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia and other countries). The key players in the industry are GE, Hitachi Medical Corporation, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare and Toshiba Medical Systems.
Drivers: Advancement in technology and healthcare facilities has made this technology popular. It is not only safe but also preferred by all patients as it does not make them claustrophobic. It is more sensitive than CT. The growing aging population and higher incidence of diseases are drivers of this market.
Constraints: The increasing number of accidents recorded in patients with implants such as pacemakers and cochlear implants. The technology also requires skilled professionals for performing the diagnosis and analyzing the results. South American is still developing which makes these advances techniques expensive.
