Contrast Media/Contrast Agent Market by Type (Iodinated, Gadolinium, Barium, & Microbubble), Procedure (X-Ray/CT, MRI, & Ultrasound) & Application (Radiology, Interventional Radiology, & Interventional Cardiology) - Global Forecasts to 2021

The global contrast media/contrast agents market is projected to reach USD 5.44 billion by 2021 from USD 4.46 billion in 2016 growing at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period.
The contrast media/contrast agents market has witnessed various advancements in products and their approvals to meet the needs of patients and radiologists worldwide. These advancements have led to the improved use of many existing contrast agents as well as the introduction of new ones.

Factors such as increasing approvals for contrast agents and increase in the number of public and private diagnostic centers to improve diagnostic imaging services are driving the demand of various diagnostic imaging modalities. Moreover, strong product pipelines of the market players, coupled with the increasing research studies regarding applications of various contrast agents, are expected to create opportunities for market growth in the near future. However side effects, adverse and allergic reactions associated with contrast agents are restraining the growth of the market to a certain extent.

In 2016, the iodinated contrast media segment expected to account for the largest share of the global contrast media/contrast agents market, among type of contrast media; the injectable contrast media segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global contrast media/contrast agents market, among the routes of administration; the X-ray/CT segment is expected to dominate the global contrast media/contrast agents market, among procedures; the cardiovascular disorders segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global contrast media/contrast agents market, among indications; and the radiology segment is expected to dominate the contrast media/contrast agents market, among applications.

In 2016, North America is estimated to be the largest market for contrast media/contrast agents, globally, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). In the coming years, the contrast media/contrast agents market is expected to witness the highest growth rate in the European region. The high growth in this region can be attributed to the increasing research & development investments by market players, increasing incidences and prevalence of cancer, and increasing number of MRI and CT scanners.

The market witnesses high competitive intensity, as there are several big and many small firms with similar product offerings. These companies adopt various strategies such as product approvals, agreements, collaborations, contract, and partnerships; expansions; and other strategies (divestment, grant, insurance coverage approval and acquisition) to increase their market shares and establish a strong foothold in the global market.
