Market Highlights

The growing acceptance of Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) accustomed by its technical advances is one of the major trends witnessed in the global SPECT market over the forecast period. Imaging devices are becoming more advanced, efficient, and evolved in terms of technology. The SPECT scanner has two integral parts namely computed tomography (CT) and a radioactive material (tracer). Basically, these tracers are used to diagnose and predict outcomes in various disease states by monitoring the therapeutic effects.

Regional Analysis

The Americas is the largest in the market owing to the improving research infrastructure in the region, coupled with the rising awareness among patients and physicians for radioisotopes. Further, SPECT has reportedly been combined with CT and MRI to provide detailed anatomical and metabolic information. It is currently exhibiting a highly lucrative growth rate due to an increased use of SPECT for diagnosis of cardiac diseases, brain diseases, etc.

The European region is the second largest SPECT market over the forecast period due to high acceptance of SPECT in research & development along with the rising incidence of chronic disease like cancers are also accountable for the growth of the Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) market.

The Asia Pacific region is likely to develop at the uppermost CAGR for the Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) market in the years to come. Moreover, the rising diagnostic care services both at the hospitals and at community level are expected to influence the market in a positive way. The Middle East and Africa accounts for the least market share due to low per capita income and lack of availability of well-trained healthcare professionals.
