Combined Scans Proving More Efficient than Conventional PET Scans

A PET-CT scan is a nuclear medicine technique that combines a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner and an x-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner. It is carried out to obtain persistent images from the two devices and combine them into one superposed image. The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the medical industry has increased the rate of diagnostic procedures due to its improved precision to pinpoint abnormal metabolic activity.

The PET scans have been overhauled by the PET-CT scanner devices in recent years, and with ongoing technological improvements, it is expected to further rise in sales in the upcoming future. Moreover, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is having its impact on the PET-CT scanner devices market, as cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy are at an elevated risk for the development of more severe disease. The demand for PET-CT scanner devices is anticipated to rise, as individuals with cancer are worried about the COVID-19 effects on them. These factors are expected to drive the PET-CT scanner devices market during the forecast period.

Key Players in Asia Pacific to Dominate Global Market

During the forecast period, owing to rising numbers of traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases in the U.S., North America is predetermined to hold a dominant share. As per reports, around 1.7 Mn individuals in the U.S. sustain a TBI every year. Thus, there is a heavy demand for PET-CT scanner devices in these regions and is expected to grow during the upcoming years.

Besides North America, Asia Pacific will most likely expand in the PET-CT scanner devices market in the near future. The market in China and India are observing new product launches, mergers and acquisitions, distribution contracts, collaborations, and geographical expansion by players. However, factors such as delayed manufacturing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, difficulty to fit in the PET-CT unit for obese people, and harmful radiation in the unit of pregnant women can impede the growth of the PET-CT scanner devices market during the forecast period. Nevertheless, technological development in medical devices is expected to overcome these restraints shortly.

Cancer Deaths Major Cause of Concern among Individuals

In 2020, around several million people in Europe died due to cancer. Breast cancer was accounted for a significantly high percentage of all diseases. A rise in the sales of PET-CT scanner devices was observed in Europe the same year. Moreover, in 2021, there will be a relatively high number of newly diagnosed cancer cases and  cancer deaths in the U.S. This is likely to generate more demand for equipment in the PET-CT scanner devices market during the year and in the forthcoming period.

The price for PET-CT scanner devices is decreasing due to increased production and competition. This is believed to generate new opportunities for manufacturers as well as consumers. Advancements in scanning devices now provide improved localization of activities to normal vs abnormal structures, and reduced scan time compared to previous versions. Other improvements in the classification of inflammatory injuries, identification of serendipitous anomalies, CT visualization of PET-negative lesions, recognition of unusual or irregular sites, and others are contributing to the growth of the PET-CT scanner devices market during the forecast period.

Innovative Competitive Strategies of Key Players Fueling Market Growth

Some of the major companies in the PET-CT scanner devices market are focusing on the growing distribution network to expand product range and availability in several regions. In May 2020, Philips announced an eight-year strategic partnership with Paracelsus Clinics to advance solutions that will increase the accessibility of imaging systems. It will help leverage digitalization and product optimization to discern quality and efficiency improvements. Due to such developing collaborations, devices are expected to provide all the useful solutions in the medical industry, boosting the growth of the PET-CT scanner devices market.

Leading organizations including United Imaging, after its announcement for setting a new standard in molecular imaging and redefining nuclear medicine in 2020, is efficiently leveraging AI to fulfill their objectives and is the main focus of substantial investment by the company. Other key players such as Bruker Corporation, Siemens Healthineers, GE Healthcare, Mediso Ltd, etc., are following the innovation trend of medical devices to increase the usefulness of medical scanning devices, which, in turn, is contributing to the growth of the PET-CT scanner devices market.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Improvements in the research and development activities across medical device industries can be ascribed to the growth of the global PET-CT scanner devices market. PET-CT scanner devices have proven to be a well-established non-invasive imaging tool for studying disease progression, the development of novel radiotracers, and pharmaceuticals for clinical applications. The popularity of PET-CT scanner devices due to their evaluation of the cancer treatment is generating demand across the globe. More doctors are preferring to carry out tests via PET-CT scanner devices to examine abnormalities of cancer cell. This is offering better opportunities during the forecast period. However, high price of devices and decreased manufacturing practice due to the COVID-19 pandemic are retraining the global market. Nevertheless, manufacturers in the PET-CT scanner devices market should focus on reducing the price and expanding the production rate to fulfill the market demand across various underdeveloped regions.

PET-CT Scanner Devices Market: Overview

  • Positron emission tomography, also known PET imaging or a PET scan, is a type of nuclear medicine imaging. Nuclear medicine imaging uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose, evaluate, or treat diseases.
  • Diagnostic centers superimpose nuclear medicine images with computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to produce special views. This is known as image fusion or co-registration. These views allow a doctor to correlate and interpret information from two different exams on one image. This leads to more precise information and accurate diagnoses.
  • Combined PET/CT scanners outperform nearly all PET scans today. These combined scans help pinpoint abnormal metabolic activity and could provide more accurate diagnoses than the two scans performed separately. This is a major factor projected to drive the global PET-CT scanner devices market.
  • Application of AI (Artificial Intelligent) in medical devices, such as imaging equipment, has increased the number of diagnostic procedures. Currently, AI offers more augmented interpretation, as it provides information to improve the identification process. Al has opened a new avenue in the field of cancer imaging and precision oncology. The AI algorithm is able to reduce noise and increase contrast compared to standard images, and takes lesser time for PET/CT imaging test.
  • Increase in incidence of cancer across the globe boosts the demand for PET-CT devices. PET-CT test helps to diagnose cancer and provides more information, including whether a tumor is benign or malignant and how well the cancer is responding to the treatment. PET-CT is an extremely sensitive imaging modality in the detection of malignant tissues and presents higher specificity than PET alone, which is the primary reason for fewer equivocal scans and better diagnostic results.
