How Much is the MRI Market Worth in Coming Years?


A number of factors, such as the technological developments in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems, rising cases of chronic illnesses, improving healthcare infrastructure, growing aging population, surging government support for MRI, and increasing awareness on the early diagnosis of diseases, are projected to boost the MRI systems market at a CAGR of 5.2% in the forecast period (2018–2023). According to P&S Intelligence, the market generated $5.9 billion revenue in 2017, and it is expected to reach $7.9 billion by 2023.

The primary factor improving the MRI systems market growth prospects is the surging aging population. The aged population is increasing continuously at a high rate due to the rising life expectancy across the world. As elderly people require extensive medical care, healthcare facilities are increasingly procuring technologically advanced radiology equipment. Also, geriatric care is complex and requires advanced treatment through cutting-edge technology. Apart from the general radiology services, MRI systems provide a better classification of musculoskeletal ailments, and they are used to generate better images of suspected soft-tissue mass.

The field strength segment of the MRI systems market is categorized into high field, very-high field, low-to-mid field, and ultra-high field. Among these, the high field category held the largest share in 2017 in the market, and it is projected to witness the same trend in the coming years. This is attributed to the improved efficiency, high accuracy, and faster imaging capability of high-field MRI systems, due to which these systems are widely used in healthcare settings across the world.
