WELLESLEY, Mass., Dec. 17, 2018 - Due to the increased prevalence of diseases, such as cancer and metabolic diseases, the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries have worked to develop efficient and precise diagnostic tools and targeted therapies. CT scanners are fundamental radiological tools that aid in diagnosing both cardiovascular and neurological disorders, as well as cancer.

In 2018 the CT scanners market was valued at $8.2 billion and is expected to reach $10.4 billion by 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9%, according to the report “Global Markets for CT Scanners.”

Research Highlights

  • In the last decade, there have been many advancements in mid-tier, premium and portable CT scanners. These advances have helped immensely in the diagnosis of various disorders such as cardiovascular disorders, neurological disorders and cancer.
  • The hospital and clinic segment accounts for the largest share of the market.
  • In the previous report, the global market was predicted to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% by 2017 whereas in the current report the global market is expected to grow slightly slower.
