Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Contrast Media/Contrast Agents Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global contrast media/contrast agents market: Bayer Healthcare, Bracco Diagnostic, Covidien, GE Healthcare and Guerbet Group

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Acusphere, Alseres Pharmaceuticals, Aposense, Avid Radiopharmaceuticals, Bayer Schering Pharma, BEILU Pharmaceutical, Cell Point, China Resources Double-crane Pharmaceutical, Draximage, Eisai, Eli Lilly, Endocyte, Eusa Pharma, Hovione FarmaCiencia, Imcor Pharmaceutical, Immunomedics, Insight Agents, Jiangsu Hengrui Medicine, King Pharmaceuticals, Lantheus Medical Imaging, Macrocyclics, MDS Nordion, Nanopet Pharma, Nanoscan Imaging, Pharmacyclics, Point Biomedical, Sanochemia Pharmazeutika, Shanghai Xudong Haipu Pharmaceutical, Spago Imaging, Subhra Pharma Private, Taejoon Pharm, VisEn Medical and Yangtze River Pharmaceutical

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Manufacturers of contrast media/contrast agents focus on technological advancements in the emerging markets such as APAC and the ROW. In APAC, countries such as China, Japan, and India have high investment potential. Growing awareness that contrast media provide clear imaging for better diagnosis is driving this market. In the US, manufacturers focus on improving the CT scan and MRI instrumentation, as well as the technology. The increase in demand for image-guided surgical procedures and diagnostic imaging, coupled with advances in technology, and an increase in incidence rates of cancer and cardiac disorders, are contributing to the growth of the market.”

According to the report, medical imaging techniques create visual representations of the interior of the body and are used for various applications such as to diagnose conditions of the central nervous system, in radiosurgery, for the treatment of intracranial tumors and arteriovenous malformations, and other surgical procedures. Medical imaging techniques can accurately detect molecular activity in the body; hence they have the potential to detect disease at its early stage. They can also gauge the patient's response to the treatment offered and therefore the treatment can be modified according to requirements. The use of diagnostic imaging is increasing because of the rise in medical spending and medical exposure to ionizing radiations. The availability of technology, demand from physicians and patients, and reimbursements are boosting the demand for contrast media/contrast agents in medical imaging.

Further, the report states that adverse clinical studies associated with contrast media pose a major challenge.
