The global computed tomography market, by Product Type (Low Slice CT Scanner (<64 slices), Medium Slice CT Scanner (64 slices), and High Slice CT Scanner (>64 slices)), by Application (Oncology, Cardiovascular Applications, Musculoskeletal Applications, Neurovascular Applications, Spinal Applications, and Others), by End User (Hospitals, and Diagnostic Centers), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 5,021.6 million in 2016 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period (2017–2025).
Growth of the global computed tomography market is primarily attributed to rampant innovation in the CT systems. With rampant innovation in the healthcare industry, key players are focusing on introducing new products to reduce current healthcare burden. For instance, in July 2017, Samsung Electronics healthcare entity — NeuroLogica, introduced BodyTom Elite (BTE) — a full body CT scanner. BTE is an upgraded version of entity’s BodyTom 32-slice CT scanner and has new features such as upgraded software, hardware, and visual design. In addition to above features, the BTE software also includes low dose lung cancer screening to detect abnormalities. In April 2017, Toshiba Medical, Aquilion Lightning 80 CT system (Aquilion). Aquilion is designed to produce high resolution images to help surgeons with faster disease diagnoses and treatment. Additionally, Aquilion is cost effective as compared to premium CT scanners and features PUREViSION CT Detector, and 3D enhanced Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction for dose reduction and patient safety.

Manufacturers in the healthcare industry are focusing on developing new diagnostic products integrated with advanced technology to deliver better results. Key manufacturers are also collaborating to strengthen their product portfolio related to medical imaging. For instance, in last few months of 2017 prominent players such as Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthineers, and GE Healthcare entered into collaboration with HeartFlow Inc. — a personalized medical technology company. The company’s HeartFlow FFRct Analysis is the first non-invasive technology that enables surgeons to diagnose coronary artery disease based on physiology and anatomy. The collaboration with HeartFlow Inc. is expected to enable Philips Healthcare to co-develop iFR or cathlab X-ray angiography image derived FFR solution to enhance workflow. The collaboration agreement with Siemens Healthineers and GE Healthcare is expected to aid in developing CT scanners based on HeartFlow Inc.’s FFRct Analysis platform.
