The objectives of the study are to present a comprehensive look at computed tomography (CT) scanners used for diagnostic purposes - global market measurements of both the overall market and all possible market segments and to forecast market and segment growth over the next five years.


This BCC study is presented to increase the awareness of the most frequently used modality, computed tomography scanners, in diagnosis and prevention.  The objective of the report is to present a comprehensive picture with analysis of the global market for CT.  This includes an analysis of the factors driving the growth, challenges affecting the industry and opportunities that participants can tap within the forecast period.  The report also reviews the competitive landscape, leading pipeline products, pricing and technology offerings.

Key geographies covered include the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, China, India and Australia.  Key segments covered include high-slice CT systems, mid-slice CT systems and low-slice CT systems, and CT systems by clinical applications: oncology, cardiovascular, neurology and others.  The report will benefit the market participants in making more informed business decisions; in developing business strategies; in market entry and market expansion strategies; and in understanding the CT systems market landscape overall.  The report also examines the impact of reimbursement cuts and a declining overall economy on CT market progression.


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

  • Oncology.
  • Cardio and vascular.
  • Neurology.
  • 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.


The information and analysis presented in this BCC report are based on primary research in the form of interviews with manufacturers, health care providers and thought leaders in the health care field.  Background information was obtained from various government agencies, business and medical journals, trade magazines, and interviews with opinion leaders, the research and development (R&D) community, product managers, marketing managers and government officials.

Key information from published literature was used to conduct interviews with more than 20 industry participants to validate and obtain expert opinions on current and future trends in the computed tomography market.  Interviews were the primary basis for development of market size.  Bottom-up approach was utilized, looking at market metrics country-wise, using information at the country level to look at dynamics, and their impact on revenues and growth.  Interviews were also used to confirm and/or adjust market size and market share estimates, as well as formulating market projections.

Input from primary research was applied to market data to establish the market metrics.  Base year revenues were employed in conjunction with average pricing to establish unit shipments, and forecasts were established using quantitative market input, qualitative trends that impact on growth rate.

All market data pertain to the global market at the manufacturer’s level.  Data are expressed in current U.S. dollars.  The base year was 2012.  Historical data are provided for 2011 and forecast data are provided for 2017.  Historical, base year and forecast data are provided for each market segment and subsegment.  Market shares are provided for each market segment for the 2012 base year.
