Global Small Animal Imaging Market to Exhibit 8.6% CAGR; Rising Numbers of CMOs in Asia Pacific to Drive Demand

The vendor landscape of the global market for small animal imaging features an intense level of competition due to the presence of numerous well-established players, according to a recent market research report by Transparency Market Research. The rising set of growth opportunities in the field of veterinary medicine has compelled companies to focus on bringing innovations in the field of production. Companies are also focused on R&D activities so as to develop technologically more advanced imaging technologies to gain a larger hold on the market.

For improved sales, companies could plough more resources into MRI-based multimodal imaging devices such as PET or MRI as the demand for such devices has been rising at a promising pace in the past few years. Bruker Corporation, Agilent Technologies, Inc., TriFoil Imaging, Inc., LI-COR Biosciences, Inc., Aspect Imaging, and Miltenyi Biotec GmbH are some of the leading companies in the market.

Geographically, the markets in regions such as Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America are expected to present the most lucrative set of growth opportunities over the report’s forecast period. The rising numbers of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical preclinical researches in these regions will contribute to the promising set of growth opportunities.

Rise in Numbers of Gene Expression Studies to Boost Market

One of the key factors expected to drive the market is the vast rise in investment in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic measures aimed at the various ailments in small animals. The market is also expected to benefit majorly from the rising focus on research activities aimed at further understanding regarding gene expression and its link with a number of diseases in small animals. The market has also significantly benefitted from the rising installation of optical and multimodal imaging devices across specialty veterinary clinics across the globe.

The rising numbers of contract research organizations in Asia Pacific and a promising rise in research activities aimed at the treatment and diagnosis of diseases in small animals has also resulted in a promising rise in demand for small animal imaging devices globally. Similar trend is also likely to prevail in other regional markets with emerging economies.

High Cost Involved in Manufacturing Could Hamper Market Growth

Despite mostly promising growth opportunities, the market could be restrained to a certain degree in the next few years. One of the toughest challenges faced by the market is the high cost involved in the manufacturing of imaging devices for small animals. Owing to this factor, the market fails to target a potentially vast set of growth opportunities in emerging economies, where the consumer is cost-conscious and could prefer other diagnostic and treatment measures due to the cost factor.

This analysis of the global small animal imaging market is based on a recent market research report by Transparency Market Research, titled “Small Animal Imaging Market (Devices - Micro-CT Imaging, Micro-MRI Imaging, Micro-PET/SPECT Imaging, Multimodal Imaging, Optical Imaging, Micro-ultrasound Imaging, and Micro-PAT; Reagents - Computed Tomography (CT) Contrast Reagents, MRI Contrast Reagents, Nuclear Imaging Contrast Reagents, Optical Imaging Contrast Reagents, and Ultrasound Contrast Reagents; Application - Oncology, Cardiology, Autoimmune Diseases, and Neurology and Psychiatry) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014–2020.”
