Global Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Market

  • Published Date: 21 Nov 2018
  • Number of Pages: 225
  • Category: Healthcare and Medical
  • Country: Global
Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) is a form of non-invasive nuclear imaging that uses radioactive tracers and a scanner to record data to determine how organs inside the body work. Data from the SPECT can be used to construct a two dimensional or three dimensional image with the help of a computer. SPECT can be combined with CT and MRI scans to provide detailed metabolic and anatomical information about the human body and this has led to SPECT gaining huge popularity around the world. The use of SPECT in tandem with CT and MRI scans to diagnose cardiac diseases, cancer, brain diseases etc.

Market Dynamics

Some of the major drivers of growth in this market are demand for SPECT analysis in radiopharmaceuticals, improvements in SPECT imaging technology, rising geriatric population and integration of CT with SPECT. The rapid advancements in nuclear medicine diagnostics study is emerging as a new segment with a huge potential. Continuous improvements in SPECT imaging technology have produced shorter imaging times and greater resolutions. Future advancements in image processing algorithms and hardware technologies are expected to fuel the growth of the SPECT market.

Huge capital investments, shorter half-life of radioisotopes, stringent regulations and reimbursement issues are some of the restraints for the market.

Market Segmentation

The global single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) market is segmented based onproduct type, application, end-user and geography.

Segmentation by Product Type
--> Hybrid SPECT
--> Standalone SPECT
Hybrid SPECT commands the highest share and is also expected to have higher growth rate than standalone SPECT.

Segmentation by Application
--> Oncology
--> Neurology
--> Cardiology
--> Other Applications (Lymphoma, Thyroid, Urology, Orthopaedics, Gastroenterology)
Cardiology segment owns an overwhelming majority of the market share. New advancements in the field are making SPECT more attractive for cardiology.

Segmentation by End-User
--> Hospitals
--> Imaging Centres
--> Academic and Research Centres
Hospitals account for the largest share of this segment. Increased adoption of nuclear imaging equipment by hospitals around the world is the primary reason for the larger share owned by hospitals in this segment.

Regional/ Geographic Analysis

North America accounts for the largest market share followed by Europe and Asia- Pacific. Developed markets like North America and Europe are expected to drive the market as SPECT is a new technology with low market penetration. Asia- Pacific is projected to have the highest growth rate primarily due to factors such as rising incidence of chronic diseases, improving research infrastructure, booming population and increasing awareness among physicians and patients.

Key Players

Prominent players in the market include Philips, Siemens, GE Healthcare, Hologic Inc., Digirad Corporation, Toshiba Medical systems, Neusoft Medical systems, Carestream, Positron Corporation, CardiArc Ltd., Agfa-Gevaert N.V and Gamma Medica Inc.
