Global Markets for CT Scanners
The global market for CT scanners was valued at $3.4 billion in 2011 and should reach nearly $3.7 billion in 2012. Total market value is expected to reach nearly $5.1 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7%.
SCOPE OF STUDY
This report is a comprehensive business tool designed to provide an in-depth look at computed tomography scanners for various applications. The geographic scope of the report is global, with a special emphasis on individual regions. The report describes the industry, its relationship to the health care industry and its participants and trends for the future.
Categories discussed in the report include
- Low-slice scanners (< 64 slices).
- Medium-slice scanners (64 slices).
- High-slice scanners (>64 slices).
Applications discussed in the report include
- Cardio and vascular.
- Others (guided procedures, spine, chest/thorax, pelvic/abdominal).
All categories are discussed in detail, describing each segment, identifying current products on the market, measuring market size, identifying market drivers, forecasting for 2012 to 2017 and assessing the competitors and competitor market shares. For country-level breakdown of segments, only the base year 2012 and projections through 2017 are shown in the data tables, conveniently ignoring the year 2011, because the year-to-year differences are statistically insignificant.
The report also covers the ancillary market—portable/mobile CT scanners—as they represent the area of highest new growth, albeit separately. This study considers data pertaining only to new CT scanners that are commercially available and used for human medical diagnostic purposes. While some base year estimates related to refurbished equipment and system upgrades may be provided, data associated with these types of products and services are not considered in the main forecasts and historical estimates provided in the tables. Mobile/portable dedicated (e.g., extremity, ENT, etc.) and hybrid CT (i.e., PET/CT, SPECT/CT) scanners are also not considered in the main forecasts and estimates provided in this report.
