Molecular Imaging Market will expand at an impressive CAGR of around 11.2% during forecast period by 2031

Molecular imaging is an emerging diagnostic technology that allows visualization, differentiation, and quantify various biological processes occurring inside a living organism at the molecular and cellular level. The global molecular imaging market is estimated to be valued approximately at US$ 4 Bn in 2021, finds Future Market Insights (FMI) in a study.

Molecular imaging targets molecular pathways and mechanisms associated with a particular disease present inside a living body. It enables to study of the molecular abnormalities taking place inside the body to carry out early detection of disease and to optimize medications aiming for disease-related molecular targets. Nuclear medicine plays a vital role in conducting a molecular imaging process and can be broadly used for the treatment of distinct cancer and related diseases.

Clinical molecular imaging is trending towards hybrid modalities such as PET-CT, SPECT, or PET-MR that provide high-resolution anatomical imaging. PET-CT is anticipated to gain maximum revenue share over the forecast period, and the segment is projected to expand at a CAGR of 16.3% during the forecast period.

Molecular imaging has evolved as a promising tool for early detection of cancers and cardiac diseases, providing a more complete picture of the tumor genome, as well as monitoring tumor emergence during disease. Molecular imaging provides the ability to accurately evaluate biological responses to the treatment of individual patients over time, opening the door to personalized medical techniques directed by molecular imaging reporters.

Molecular Imaging Needs Rising In Response to Increasing Cancer Cases

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2020, breast cancer emerged as the most common type of cancer, affecting 2.2 million people around the world.  Lung cancer has been the leading cause of death with over 1.7 Mn of total deaths in 2020. North America has the highest incidence rate of cancer followed by East Asia. This rise in the cancer population is leading to a rise in the demand for diagnostic imaging, thereby catalyzing the demand for molecular imaging.
