[128 pages report] This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the global magnetic resonance imaging market by product type (closed MRI systems and open  MRI systems), by field (low field MRI systems, high field MRI systems, and very high MRI systems), by applications (cardiology, neurology, oncology, gastroenterology, musculoskeletal, and others), by end-users (hospitals, ambulatory care, diagnostic centers, and others), and by regions (North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW).

Research Overview

Infoholic Research predicts that the global magnetic resonance imaging market will grow at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. Medical imaging is growing substantially as it is the primary tool for diagnosing a wide range of diseases. The development of computer-aided diagnostics that have integrated in radiology services has enabled to diagnose and produce high quality images and expand the reach and improving the quality of diagnosis. Today there are many challenges faced by radiologists and the most common diagnostic issue is the collection of data about patients in larger volume that is complex. However, EMR and EHR are used to smoothen the process flow, whereas AI is leveraging the cloud-based features with imaging softwares and solutions that will solve many problems of radiologists.

The market is witnessing drastic changes in technology that has led to high adoption of MRI systems across various chronic diseases examination. Further, the advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) is replacing human analysis. Increase incidence of chronic diseases, rise in geriatric population, growing awareness about early benefits of diagnosis, and introduction of advanced MRI systems with better image quality is driving the market.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Market The market is fueled by innovation and new technological techniques & procedures. The increase in demand for more advanced & customized diagnosis and treatment with availability of vast healthcare services globally have pushed the market to produce safe, efficient, and cost-effective products in the market.
