Market Report Description

The Global PET-CT Scanner Device Market size is expected to reach $2.6 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 5.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

PET imaging or a PET scan is another name for positron emission tomography, which is a sort of nuclear medicine imaging. It evaluates organ and tissue functions using small amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers or radiopharmaceuticals, a special camera, and a computer. In addition, by detecting changes at the cellular level, it can detect the early onset of disease before other imaging tests. Moreover, it can detect heart illness, cancer, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and neurological issues, among other conditions. The radiotracers utilized in it tend to accumulate in tumors or inflammatory areas and bind to certain proteins in the body.

PET-CT, which is regarded as a high-end technique, has gained widespread adoption because of its excellent quality, accuracy, precision, and versatility in diagnosis. Additionally, the integration of PET and CT in a single system is seen as an advancement in imaging technology, as the combination of two well-established modalities provides greater benefits than the sum of their parts. Moreover, CT scanners provide high-resolution images of the anatomy.

Also, malignant disorders can only be detected with this technique, starting with observing changes in lymph node size or the existence of aberrant masses. On the other hand, for a lymph node that is normal in size, PET can completely identify a functional anomaly. As a result, combining PET/CT systems allows for a better functional assessment of anatomical scan abnormalities as well as improved spatial localization of functional abnormalities.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

PET imaging allows researchers to track COVID-19's key pathophysiological changes at the molecular level, providing crucial information for the disease's subsequent diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. The most widely employed PET imaging agent in COVID-19 patients is F-labeled fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG), a radiolabeled glucose analog, and the integrated PET/CT system can be used to evaluate the functional and structural alterations of COVID-19 at the same time. In addition, the adoption of devices in the diagnosis and evaluation of the COVID-19 fueled the demand for these devices during the pandemic period. Moreover, cancer patients who receive radiation therapy have a higher risk of developing a more serious condition.

Market Growth Factors:

Growing occurrence of chronic diseases and the growing elderly population

In the last couple of years, there has been a rising prevalence of infectious and chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease around the world, as well as increased demand for better diagnostic technologies. Globally, an estimated 14.1 million new cancer cases were recorded in 2012, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Among these, Lung cancer (13%) was the most prevalent type, followed by breast cancer (11.9%) and colorectal cancer (11.9%). (9.7 percent). In addition, increased cases of brain diseases including Alzheimer's and traumatic brain injury are fueling market expansion. Moreover, the number of newly diagnosed cancer cases and cancer fatalities across the world would increase significantly. Furthermore, Scanner advancements now allow for better localization of activity to normal vs. aberrant structures, as well as faster scan times than earlier versions.

The rise in deployment of PET/CT systems in clinical applications

PET-only scanners had an equivalent of extremely crude built-in CT scanners that used PET detectors such as crude CT detectors prior to the advent of PET/CT systems. The pictures produced by these CT-equivalent systems were non-diagnostic and highly sluggish. Furthermore, they exposed patients to more radiation. Hence, Correction images exposure was introduced into PET/CT systems. Moreover, PET/CT scanners are also quicker, which helps to eliminate motion artifacts. Because of the unique combination of functional information received with PET and anatomic information gathered with CT, PET/CT systems have seen an increase in usage since their introduction into clinical practice.

Market Restraining Factors

High Installation & Maintenance Costs

One of the biggest challenges faced by the industry players is high maintenance and installation costs of these systems. Due to the considerable capital necessary for the latest technology, and with a huge and controlled refurbished systems business, especially in developing nations has hampered the adoption of new and innovative systems. In addition, major global and domestic players have entered this profitable industry, offering refurbished equipment to healthcare facilities around the world at inexpensive pricing. Moreover, Healthcare institutions prefer low-cost reconditioned equipment over new products. Further, there are unsupportive healthcare reimbursement scenarios in many countries. Globally, decreased payer reimbursement for PET and SPECT procedures has resulted in a drop in outpatient volumes, limiting patient access to high-quality, low-cost imaging and diagnostic services.

PET-CT Scanner Device Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2020

Slice Count Outlook

Based on Slice Count, the market is segmented into Medium Slice Cardiology (64 Slices), Low Slice Cardiology (<64 Slices), and High Slice Cardiology (>64 Slices). The Low Slice Cardiology (<64 Slices) segment obtained a significant revenue share of the PET-CT Scanner Device Market. This is due to the high occurrence of medical implants, shifting food habits, and acceptance of sedentary lifestyles. Moreover, constant developments in imaging devices with the help of R&D efforts would drive the growth of the segment during the forecasting period.

Isotope/Detector Type Outlook

Based on Isotope/Detector Type, the market is segmented into Flurodeoxyglucose (FDG), 62Cu ATSM, 18 F Sodium Fluoride, FMISO, Gallium, Thallium, and Others. In 2020, the Flurodeoxyglucose (FDG) segment obtained the highest revenue share of the PET-CT Scanner Devices Market. F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG), for example, is a common radiotracer that is absorbed by cancer cells. This is because of the increasing number of FDG applications, a decrease in the number of FDG adverse effects, and an increase in the incidence of chronic diseases. Moreover, it provides a number of advantages, including the ability to provide more detail with a higher level of accuracy.

Service Provider Outlook

Based on Service Provider, the market is segmented into Hospitals, Diagnostic Centers, and Research Institutes. In 2020, the Hospitals segment collected the maximum revenue share of the PET-CT Scanner Device Market. This is due to an increase in the number of hospitals, a surge in patient awareness toward treatment in hospitals, increased healthcare infrastructure, and increased adoption of PET-CT scanner devices.

Type Outlook

Based on Type, the market is segmented into Stationary Scanners and Portable Scanners/Mobile Scanners. The Portable Scanners/Mobile Scanners segment held a significant revenue share of the PET-CT Scanner Device Market. This is because small and medium-sized healthcare organizations are increasingly turning to mobile devices. Moreover, lower expenses, faster installation time, cheap initial investment, and reduced patient travel are some of the advantages of the mobile device category. Leading manufacturers such as GE, Philips, and Siemens provide a variety of portable PET-CT scanners.

Application Outlook

Based on Application, the market is segmented into Oncology, Cardiology, Neurology, and Others. In 2020, the Cardiology segment obtained a significant revenue share of the PET-CT Scanner Device Market. A cardiac positron emission tomography (PET) scan uses a small quantity of radioactivity to examine the heart muscle. When compared to conventional nuclear stress testing methods, cardiac PET/CT provides higher accuracy, reduced radiation, and increased efficiency in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (SPECT). Patients with a high body mass index, or BMI, or a considerable amount of breast/chest wall tissue, breast implants, or pleural or pericardial effusions may benefit from cardiac PET/CT.
