Advancements in technology pertaining to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have enabled capturing of high-quality images of ligaments, soft tissues, and other body organs. Moreover, technological advancements have widened the scope of applications.
Companies are focusing towards research and development of advanced open systems, which have minimum chances of suffocation and higher acceptance among claustrophobic people. Hence, such improvements in the technology are working in favor of the global MRI market. The rising geriatric population is also stimulating the adoption of MRI.
The demand for MRI is strong for scanning brain and neurological systems due to the lack of effective and accurate alternation. However, in several other applications such as cardiac and breast imaging, alternatives such as ultrasound techniques and x-ray are considered to be first-line imaging tools. In terms of field strength, mid field strength devices are likely to have high demand throughout the forecast period, owing to affordable price and acceptable speed and resolution.
While developed regions will be at the forefront of growth due to the high acceptance of technologically advanced products, developing regions will emerge to be the new destinations for key players in the global MRI market. The phenomenal growth of these regions can be attributed to the improving healthcare infrastructure and rising disposable income. The global MRI market is expected to be dominated by international players due to their strong foothold and brand name across all major geographies. A large number of players will be focusing towards product innovations to stay relevant in the market
