The Reports “Medical Image Sensors Market By Applications (Scientific X- Ray, Endoscopy, Camera Pills, Resonance, Radiograph, Orthopedic, Surgical, Ophthalmology, Laparoscopy, Ccd, Cmos, Mammography) Revenue, Share, Size, Analysis, Forecast 2015-2021”
“Imaging techniques have evolved over the years and a number of advanced devices for optical imaging, nuclear imaging, radiology and other image-guided intervention are being used. Use of sensors has revolutionized the industry, and though recent entrants into the industry, imaging sensors will have a huge impact on patient comfort and outcomes.”
Image sensor technology market is capable of a multitude of medical imaging applications and has had a huge positive impact on medical diagnostics and treatments. The industry has witnessed many important and path-breaking innovations are likely to impact the industry in a big way. Some of the significant developments include pixel miniaturization in image sensors, development of disposable devices, among others. All these developments are primarily aimed at increasing patient comfort, ease to use and diagnostic accuracy among many others.
Experts believe that the market is set for an exponential growth, with the huge focus on healthcare globally. Some of the sensors expected to register extremely high growth include diagnostic and monitoring devices such as blood glucose level checking devices, cardiac pacemakers, and other implantable medical tools.
Medical imaging is primarily used for diagnostic purposes. In spite of many developments and technological advances, medical imaging is known to cause a lot of patient discomfort. At times it is also not conclusive enough to offer the kind of aid that medical professional need. In developing countries the situation is worse. Low awareness about medical imaging coupled with near absent knowledge of sensors, will make it difficult for the industry to register growth in these markets. The other significant challenge will be the costs associated with the products. Again the challenge is likely to restrict growth in the developing countries where the need is acute but purchasing capacity will be low and restricted to few hospitals and individuals.
“High costs of sensors used in medical imaging are potentially the most significant challenge that the industry faces. Lack of awareness amongst end users may also result in slow growth.”
To meet these challenges, the industry participants will need to not only increase awareness among medical practitioners but also amongst the end users. In addition constant investment in R&D to further reduce costs, since the demand for the products definitely exists. With lifestyle diseases on the rise and aging population almost all countries are likely to register a growth in demand.
“Medical Imaging Sensors: High demand for new technologies”
The current market for sensors is miniscule in the overall imaging market currently, however it is likely to chart a fast growth over the next few years. The innovations in the industry will lead to new products that will meet patient and physician requirements. The high quality imaging resulting from use of sensors will also have a huge impact on diagnostics. The medical imaging sensors are still in an evolution stage and will change the course of the industry going forward. As the demand for advanced medical imaging continues to grow, the impact of sensors in improving diagnostic capabilities will push the growth.
