Technical advancements to stimulus the contrast media market

An upsurge in the occurrence of long-standing diseases and complex comorbidities has led to an increase in the number of diagnostic imaging tests. These consist of ultrasound, X-rays, and advanced imaging technology like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) scans. To recognize the need for treatment/ surgeries in interventional procedures and perioperative scans before surgeries are projected to fuel the usage of contrast media in imaging procedures. Contrast media are used to improve the inside images of the body formed by ultrasound, X-ray, MRI, and CT scans. It helps radiologists to distinguish between normal and abnormal tissues. These dyes don’t discolor the internal organs permanently. Instead, they are the substances that momentarily change the way imaging tools interact with the body. These dyes help to contrast the particular areas of the body from the surrounding tissue, thus refining the visibility of specific tissues, blood vessels, and organs. Image-guided help determines either cancer is malignant or benign. With the raised incidence and the upsurge in the number of cancer cases in both emerging and urban economies of the world, it is essential to offer procedures that can help patients get a diagnosis at the prior stages.

Primarily, Iodine and Barium-based agents were used by radiologists and specialists, currently, gold nanoparticle and radiopharmaceuticals are using widely. Advanced techniques like gas microbubble technology in gas and MRI imaging technology will demonstrate as a necessary driver in the extensive use of contrast agents. The factors like growing investments in the contrast media market and the modifications that are made in the radiopharmaceuticals and healthcare sector are enhancing the market growth. The demand for diagnostics imaging is at an all-time high, with multiple kinds of chronic diseases growing rapidly in the globe.
However, the high cost of medical imaging equipment and a shortage of skilled specialists in the industry may hamper the growth of the contrast media market. With economies undergoing medical modifications affecting the sales of contrast agents and commercial slowdowns are some factors hampering the growth of the market.

Global Contrast Media Market Segment analysis

Based on Type, the Iodine-based contrast media agents segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Iodinated contrast media will impel the overall growth of the contrast media market. Iodinated contrast media are contrast agents that include iodine atoms used for x-ray-based imaging modalities like computed tomography (CT), even though they are also used in angiography, fluoroscopy, and venography. While the intravenous route of administration is most common, they are also managed by many other routes, containing gastrointestinal (oral, rectal), vaginal, cystourethral, intraosseous, etc. Iodine has a specific benefit as a contrast agent because the k-shell binding energy (kedge) is 33.2 keV, alike to the average energy of x-rays used in diagnostic radiography 1. When the incident x-ray energy is nearer to the K-edge of the atom it encounters, photoelectric absorption is more probable to occur.

Global Contrast Media Market Regional analysis

The North American region has dominated the market with US$ XX Mn. North America holds a major share in the contrast media market and is anticipated to show a similar trend over the forecast period. In the United States, the first gadolinium-based contrast agent was approved. Four agents were approved in the United States in the previous years and they have set a series trend in the industry to continue to find more effective, more precise, and safe agents. The contrast media sales are anticipated to surge in the United States in the upcoming years. Amongst the different imaging modalities, sales of contrast media for the ultrasound market may have a significant growth rate. The United States is the leading consumer market for contrast media in North America. The rise in chronic diseases, like cardiovascular and neurological diseases, is the main propelling factor for market growth in the United States.

The APAC region with major countries like Japan, India, and China, will impel the contrast media market in the coming years, with a steady CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Most of the companies see favorable business forecasts in this region owing to its healthy economic growth and rising investment prospects for radiology equipment manufacturers and providers. Quickly emerging markets like India and China will also continue to grow in the nearby future.
