Multimodal Imaging Market Outlook (2022-2030)

Worldwide demand for multimodal imaging systems is anticipated to increase at a steady CAGR of 4% from 2022 to 2030, with the market currently standing at a valuation of US$ 2.7 billion. By the end of 2032, the global multimodal imaging market is estimated to reach a value of US$ 3.7 billion.

Imaging has become a crucial aspect of the healthcare industry as it has been widely deployed in the diagnostics and treatment of several diseases in recent years, and this is anticipated to positively influence the multimodal imaging market growth potential throughout the forecast period.

Growing use of multimodal imaging diagnostic procedures is being witnessed to identify and treat various chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disorders, cancers, neurological diseases, and ophthalmic disorders. Rising incidence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disorders (COPDs) is also a factor that is anticipated to uplift multimodal imaging system sales over the coming years.

Technological advancements in medical imaging are also expected to crucially shape overall market growth market in the future. Increasing insurance coverage for imaging procedures, favourable reimbursement policies, growing awareness and preference for multimodal imaging techniques, and developments in radiotracer technologies are other factors that could potentially promulgate the demand for multimodal imaging devices over the next eight years.

Hyperspectral imaging and the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in diagnostic imaging are also expected to be areas of prime importance in the healthcare imaging industry going forward. The growing senescent population and rising investments in healthcare infrastructure development in developing countries are also expected to lead to increased shipments of multimodal imaging equipment as time goes by.

  • As per data reported by the World Health Organization (WHO), the population of people above the age of 60 was around 1 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach 1.4 billion by the end of 2030.

Growing prevalence of neurological disorders and demand for early diagnostics are also expected to supplement the demand for fusion imaging technologies in the future. The world has also witnessed a significant increase in the cancer-affected patient pool. As such, the growing use of imaging in cancer detection and treatment is also predicted to promote market development throughout the forecast period. Increasing preference and popularity of minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures are also expected to be a crucial prospect expected to boost demand for multimodal imaging devices across regions.

However, the high costs of multimodal imaging systems and the dearth of skilled medical professionals to operate these advanced imaging devices are anticipated to emerge as major restraints to overall market growth through 2030. Moreover, stringent regulatory standards around preclinical multimodal imaging are also expected to constrain multimodal imaging device sales going forward.

The multimodal imaging industry accounts for around 8% share of the global medical imaging market in 2022.
