How has COVID-19 had a Significant Negative Impact on the Medical Imaging Devices Market?

COVID-19 presented an opportunity for the medical imaging devices market players to play an expanded role in care. The growing number of coronavirus cases across the globe in the previous years triggered the need for diagnostics for COVID cases. Furthermore, the rising relationship between technology and healthcare to enable access to care opened new revenue avenues for the market players over the forecast period. Increased risk of respiratory complications and pneumonia also triggered the use of imaging devices for diagnosis.

The Visiongain lead analyst comments: “COVID-19 has caused major issue in accessibility to healthcare. However, diagnostic medical procedures helped in early diagnosis of complications to help early treatment procedures. Furthermore, availability of medical imaging devices at diagnostic centers and easy access at hospitals has also impacted the uptake of these procedures. However, the major cause for the drop was owing to the reluctance among patients to visit healthcare facilities.”

What are the Current Market Drivers?

High prevalence of chronic conditions

Increasing prevalence of chronic conditions is a major cause for the need of diagnostic imaging. These diseases urge the need for screening and detection with medical imaging equipment. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases, include cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes. According to WHO, NCDs lead to 41 million deaths each year (account for 74% of all deaths globally). As per CDC, annually, in the US, 6 in 10 adults have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 adults have two or more chronic diseases. These chronic diseases are a leading cause of death and disability in the US with annual healthcare costs of US$4.1 trillion. With growing awareness of these lifestyle diseases patients are now opting for regular health check-ups thereby, driving the market growth.


Innovation continues to drive the market with advanced equipment and accurate diagnosis for disease predictions. Number of features such as accuracy and precision, early detection, workflow efficiency, affordability, and integration of multimodal data are being implemented to enhance the devices. Further characteristics could include combination of light and audio, modalities for lightweight, portable, intelligent, connected, and dedicated systems. In addition, portable and wearable scanners are expected to trigger market growth. For instance, in Sep 2021, the US FDA approved the first major imaging device advancement for computed tomography in nearly a decade. The new diagnostic imaging device, called Siemens NAEOTOM Alpha, designed to transform the information from X-ray photons received by a detector, into a detailed 3D image. The images can be used in diagnosis, train staff, radiation therapy planning. The FDA reviewed the system through the 510(k) premarket clearance pathway, such advancements are expected help in enhancing the market growth.

Where are the Market Opportunities?

Development of innovative technologies

Novel technologies such as artificial and augmented intelligence, augmented and virtual reality combined with 3D imaging are expected to provide new opportunities. Virtual reality could help in providing training to personnel while AI could help in automating reasoning and enhancing human diagnostic characteristics. Some examples include, DeepMind uses GoogleAI to reduce false results in breast cancer screening; Cardiac MRI segmentation and analysis model to provide real time diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases; ProFound AI to enhance accuracy of tomosynthesis imaging to detect breast cancer. In addition, increasing funding in AI for imaging technologies has boosted the market growth. For instance, according to Rock Health’s Digital funding reported radiology AI funding has increased from US$ 2 billion in 2013 to $13 billion in 2022. It is expected that by 2028 there would be 147 new AI products based on the funding of 2022 of US$13 billion.
