Market Overview

The UK diagnostic imaging equipment market is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.5%, during the forecast period. Certain factors that are driving the market growth include rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases, growing adoption of advanced technologies in medical imaging, and increase in the geriatric population.

Wider adoption of cloud technologies and the adoption of new advanced technologies play a major role in improving the market economy. Increasing aging population and increased incidence of chronic diseases are also key factors driving the market growth. Patients aged 65 years and older undergo diagnostic imaging at two or more times the rate of younger people. Women also tend to use slightly higher rates of imaging than men. In spite of these factors driving the market, there are other factors restraining the growth of the market, such as expensive procedures and equipment, and certain side effects of diagnostic imaging procedures.

Scope of the Report

Diagnostic imaging is the process of making a visual representation of the interior of a body for medical intervention. These equipment help in establishing a database of normal anatomy and physiology of internal organs, so that any abnormality can be noticed immediately. The ability to create pictures of a patient’s internal anatomy and convert them to film through diagnostic imaging has revolutionized the way many diseases and injuries are detected, diagnosed, and treated. This market has applications in various medical fields, like cardiology, oncology, neurology, and orthopedics.
