Besides, emerging features and new technologies has gained major attention of end user segment and this factor is expected to provide rising new growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period. The high use of CT scans compared to other imaging modalities which have its various advantages and the increase in mergers and acquisitions among the major market players for the development and distribution of advanced devices are further influencing the computed tomography devices market. In addition, increased public and private sector financing of healthcare, growing consumer trend towards minimally invasive diagnostic procedures, growing awareness of the procedural benefits of computed tomography, and rising healthcare spending are having a positive impact on the market for computed tomography equipment. Furthermore, the market shift towards image-driven intervention and preference for multimodal diagnostic imaging systems presents lucrative opportunities for the computed tomography devices market players over the forecast period.


The market has major restraining factors like significant installation, maintenance & service costs of computed tomography equipment and lack of well-trained and skilled healthcare professionals in workforce. The computed tomography equipment also require high maintenance costs and this factor is expected to act as a hurdler for the market growth over the forecast period. Besides, lack of advanced healthcare infrastructure in low-income nations is another factor restraining the market growth.  


Growing adoption of refurbished CT scanner is an important element which is expected to be a key challenge for the market, especially in developing and low-income countries. Also, uncertain reimbursement scenario across developing nations along with lack of skilled work force is expected to be major hampering for the market growth over the forecast the period. 


The report provides in-depth analysis of global computed tomography market, market size, and compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the forecast period of 2022-2028, considering 2021 as the base year. With increasing demand for various computed tomography equipment in various healthcare and diagnostic applications has led the increasing demand for market and is expected to witness the growth at a specific CAGR from 2022-2028.



The global computed tomography market comprises of different market segment like technology type, application, end users and geography. 


By technology type, the Computed Tomography includes the key segments of 

  • High-end Slice
  • Mid End Slice
  • Low-End Slice
  • Cone Beam 

The high-end slice (more than 64 slices) segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. Rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases and demand for accurate diagnostic imaging solutions are the factors expected to drive the segment. High-end wafer technology has comparatively 80% lower radiation exposure than mid-wafer technology (64 layers) with a 16cm imaging area that contributes to precise technique. High-end cutting devices provide detailed images of overweight patients. Market growth of this segment is also primarily driven by continued commercialization of advanced products in key markets, increasing public-private investment in high-slice CT, and increased focus on effective and early diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Additionally, the advanced CT imaging capabilities of high-cut CT machines and their growing acceptance for outpatient diagnostic procedures have broadened their application horizons.


The Computed Tomography market has major applications in 

  • Oncology
  • Neurology
  • Cardiovascular
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Veterinary 
  • Research 
  • Diagnostics
  • Others 

The oncology segment is anticipated to lead the market over the estimated time period. Rising prevalence of cancer and growing applications of CT scans in diagnosing various types of cancer including nodules and tumours are the factors expected to drive the segment. The introduction of innovative technologies, including computer-assisted detection and diagnosis of suspected cancerous nodules and access to malignancy risk, particularly in lung cancer, is expected to drive growth. The software can further calibrate the captured image with the biopsy result, which helps in accurate diagnosis.


The computed tomography market has major end users like 

  • Hospitals & Clinics
  • Diagnostic Centers
  • Others 

The hospitals and clinics segment is anticipated to lead the market over the estimated time period. The growing number of emergency hospital admissions and the increasing number of surgeries performed each year have contributed to the market share. Additionally, CT scans serve as an effective tool for accurate diagnosis before and after surgery to determine treatment effectiveness. The difficulties and risks associated with transporting critically ill patients from the hospital to a remote diagnostic center for CT scans have forced hospitals to install their own CT scan machines, contributing to the growth of this segment. The diagnostic centers segment is expected to grow faster over the forecast period. According to OECD statistics, there were 16 CT scanners per 1,000,000 of the population in outpatient diagnostic centers in the United States. It is expected to propel the growth of the market segment as it makes CT scans more affordable and accessible. 


The global Computed Tomography market is studied for the following region 

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Rest of the world (RoW)

North America is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. North America is anticipated to witness increasing demand for computed tomography owing to presence to well established market players. Besides, the increased incidence of cancer is a main factor driving the growth of the regional market. According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 1,806,590 new cancers were diagnosed in the United States in 2020. Furthermore, the introduction of new technologies coupled with artificial intelligence and the frequent launch of low beam CT scans are expected to contribute to the growth of the market.
