MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

The term "imaging" refers to a variety of ways for obtaining or producing images. Imaging technologies in medical diagnostics allow you to see an anatomical structure, evaluate its functionality, and look for any abnormalities. Imaging techniques can provide functional data in addition to morpho-structural data. Medical imaging has been founded on radiography and radioscopy for more than fifty years; however, new technologies such as ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and computed tomography have recently transformed this field. Computed tomography, ultrasound, echocolordoppler, magnetic resonance, PET, and SPECT are the modalities currently deemed advanced. The set of different techniques can be divided into two broad categories: Structural imaging that provides information on the anatomy of the organs with different methods (X-rays, CT Scanner, etc.) and Functional imaging that informs the health worker about the functions organs (PET, MEG, EEG, etc. ..). 

The global medical imaging market was worth USD 15.9 billion in 2020, and it is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 5.2 percent from 2021 to 2028. The increased demand for early-stage diagnosis of chronic disease and the aging demographics, which are predicted to boost demand for diagnostic imaging around the world, are two major reasons driving the business.

Although the Italian health system is public, Italy is experiencing a period of important investments in the field of innovation of medical imaging instrumentation. In 82% of cases, portable ultrasound scanners were purchased less than five years ago, as were 78% of digital systems for arch surgery and 81% of digital mobile radiographs. Unfortunately, previously, the country did not stand out among the countries adopting the most advanced technologies; of the 18,000 obsolete diagnostic imaging devices in Italian hospitals, many are in the process of being replaced to reach a predetermined threshold of technological development in the sector. The Italian medicine and private care sector has a wide range of adoption of new technologies, investing more and more in Italian companies and research. Italy stands out in Europe for the advancement of its research in the medical and diagnostic fields. The market is growing and needs cutting-edge investments. 

Many of these technologies are purchased by private hospitals not only for diagnosis, but mostly for the prevention of any problems. The latest trends include the support of medical imaging with more quantitative diagnoses and above all the study of genetics and congenital diseases.
