As imaging specialism continues to penetrate through the global healthcare landscape, the adoption of radiology in diagnosis and medical imaging operations continues to gain grounds, particularly in pediatric care. Protecting the new-born babies from suffering traumas during or post- birth has fuelled the demand for employing the subspecialty medical imaging science of radiology in pediatric diagnosis. In the future, hospitals and child specialty centers will actively install pediatric radiology devices to improve the diagnosis of young infants and children. However, growing speculations of parents with respect to radiation exposure continues to put pediatric radiology in a bad light. Moreover, education of pediatric radiology remains nascent and radiographers are facing challenges in being updated with the upgradations in pediatric imaging techniques.

Transparency Market Research’s latest forecast study observes that the global pediatric radiology market will expand vigorously in the near future. Despite the considerable restraints, the global adoption of pediatric radiology will reflect robust growth. During the forecast period, 2017-2026, the global pediatric radiology market will register a CAGR of 7.7%. The study further reveals that by the end of 2026, the global pediatric radiology market will touch a valuation of US$ 3.57 Bn. North America will represent the most lucrative marketplace for adoption of pediatric radiology devices. Robust healthcare infrastructure in the US, dense presence of medical device manufacturers and high spending of pediatric care will continue to drive the adoption of pediatric radiology in North America. By the end of 2026, North America’s pediatric radiology market will be worth one-third of global market value forecasted in the report.

Ultrasound Devices to Outsell X-ray Systems Towards the End of Forecast Period

Effectiveness of pediatric radiology devices in terms of producing quality images, integrating clinical information, and accurately assessing the conditions of the imaged body part continues to influence their sales. In 2017, around US$ 640 Mn worth of x-ray pediatric radiology devices were sold across the globe. The demand for x-ray systems will remain high in the first half of the forecast period, albeit, will dwindle towards the end of 2026. Adoption of ultrasound pediatric radiology devices is anticipated to gain traction. By 2026-end, over 40% of global pediatric radiology market value will be netted from sales of ultrasound systems and devices.

Hospitals to Represent Largest End-user; Standalone Modality to Remain Sought-After through 2026

Pediatric diagnosis is widely available across hospitals as parents are willing to spend on providing highest level of care for their babies. Reduced hospitalization time and immediate access to treatment options continue to drive hospitals in instating departments on pediatric radiology. By the end of 2026, pediatric radiology devices will be largely used in hospitals, bringing in nearly US$ 1.5 Bn in global revenues. Pediatric clinics, on the other hand, will register fastest end-use by reflecting a value CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period. The report further reveals that standalone devices worth over US$ 1 Bn were sold in the global pediatric radiology market by 2017-end. In terms of modality, standalone devices will remain more convenient for diagnosis and high-tech imaging. The report also reveals that portable modality of pediatric radiology devices will register fastest uptake, reflecting a 9.5% CAGR over the forecast period.

Increased Instances of Injuries and Fractures among Children Fuels Demand Opportunities in Pediatric Radiology Market

Pediatric radiology refers to a branch of the diagnostic radiology that is mainly used for the imaging of infants, children, adolescents, fetuses, and young adults. Nuclear medicine, X-ray, ultrasound, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans, and CT (computed tomography) scans are some of the popular examples of pediatric radiology.

In recent period, there is remarkable growth in the number of children suffering from various injuries and fractures. As a result, there is extensive increase in the use of pediatric radiology imaging techniques in the healthcare sector from all across the world. This is one of the key factors fueling the expansion of the global pediatric radiology market.

Pediatric radiology devices are widely used to protect the new-borne babies from traumas during or after birth. These devices are gaining momentum owing to their ability to produce high-quality images, integrate clinical data, and precisely study the conditions of the imaged body part. Owing to all these benefits, the global pediatric radiology market is growing at promising pace. Several healthcare professionals from all worldwide locations are growing the use of pediatric radiology positioners as these tools help in the faster and accurate diagnosis. All the pediatric radiology procedures are performed by trained professionals named pediatric radiologists.

The worldwide healthcare sector is witnessing adverse impact of recent COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, there is notable decline in various surgeries as well as several diagnostic procedures. This factor is likely to result into declined sales in the global pediatric radiology market for upcoming few months. However, the companies engaged in the global market for pediatric radiology are focused on strategizing business moves and regain their regular production activities. Apart from this, players in the pediatric radiology market are slowly improving their supply chains. Owing to all these factors, the global pediatric radiology market is expected to shoe fast recovery from the loss due to recent pandemic.
