The North America medical imaging equipment services market is expected to reach US$ 8,916.28 Mn in 2027 from US$ 6,526.03 Mn in 2018. The market is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 3.6% from 2019-2027.
The growth of the medical imaging equipment services market is primarily attributed to the rising numbers of hospital and diagnostics centers, better quality performance due to service, and rising prevalence of chronic and acute diseases. However, the market is likely to get impacted by the risk factor such as lack of funds/grants for the diagnostic equipment during the forecast period. On the other hand, rising technological developments is likely to have a positive impact on the growth of the North America medical imaging equipment services market in the coming years.
There are has been a significant rise in the diagnostic industry in the last few years due to the transformation in the healthcare systems. Also, the rapidly growing population demands good health and therefore, is leading to the rising numbers of hospitals and diagnostics centers. The hospitals and diagnostic centers have all imaging devices such as ultrasound, CT scan, MRI scans, and others. In the United States, the rising number of population is the critical factor that is leading to increasing numbers of hospitals and diagnostic centers. For instance, the names of hospitals are rising in the US. According to the recent data published for the year 2019, by the American Hospitals Association states that there is nearly 6,210 number of hospitals across the country. Also, it indicates that the number of hospitals has been increased by almost 700, and among them, approximately 400 are community hospitals. Moreover, as per the data of the Ontario Hospital Association, in 2018, there was a total of 141 public hospital corporations in the city. Therefore, rising numbers of hospitals and diagnostic centers are likely to add up to the growth of medical imaging equipment services.
