Contrast Media Injectors Market – Insights

Contrast media injectors are devices used to administer or insert contrast media into the patient’s body to enhance visibility of tissues prior to medical imaging procedure such as computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, ultrasound scan, and X-ray.

The global contrast media injectors market is estimated to account for US$ 2,000.7 Mn in terms of value and 49,381 units in terms of volume by the end of 2027.

Global Contrast Media Injectors Market: Drivers

Increasing prevalence of cancer is expected to boost growth of the global contrast media injectors market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide and is resulted in around 9.6 million deaths in 2018.

Moreover, increasing investment by government and private organizations in contrast media injectors and treatment and management of chronic diseases is also expected to boost growth of the market. For instance, in December 2019, the Government of Australia announced to invest US$ 5 million in a new funding round for research into the primary and secondary prevention of cancer through the National Health and Medical Research Council's partnership with the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases.

Europe region held dominant position in the global contrast media injectors market in 2014, accounting for 37.0% share in terms of volume, followed by North America.

Global Contrast Media Injectors Market: Restraints 

High cost of contrast media injectors and consumables & accessories is a major factor hindering growth of the global contrast media injectors market over the forecast period. For instance, CT injectors cost between US$ 30,000 and US$ 40,000, while MRI injectors cost between US$ 35,000 and US$ 40,000.

Moreover, there are several side effects associated with contrast media such as stomach cramps, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting (associated with barium sulphate contrast materials). Side effects associated with iodine-based contrast materials include, headache, flushing and mild skin rashes. Such side effects are also expected to hamper growth of the market.

Global Contrast Media Injectors Market: Opportunities

Key players in the market can focus on developing contrast media injectors with soft bag technology to expand their market share. Use of soft bag technology in contrast media injectors offers several benefits such as gentle media insertion with maximum comfort to patients, easier handling, software-guided protocol, reduced handling time, and reduced chances of formation of air emboli.

Moreover, key players in the market can also focus on developing improved software for better contrast media delivery. Software-guided contrast media injectors offer several advantages such as pre-installed protocol, increased accuracy of outcomes, potential increase in contrast media utility, uniform distribution of contrast media, and contrast media management.
