Mobile Imaging Market Overview:

The global mobile imaging market size was valued at $29,389.4 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $53,847.8 million by 2030 registering a CAGR of 6.50% from 2021 to 2030. Mobile imaging technology is used to provide fast, accurate diagnostic services on site, transforming a traditionally time-consuming process into a smooth, easy one with immediate results. Mobile imaging has a variety of novel uses in fields such as cardiology, neurology, and women's health. Direct X-ray, electrocardiogram (EKG), and ultrasound services are provided by mobile imaging services to medical facilities as well as residential and private sector residents.

The growth of the global mobile imaging market is majorly driven by rise in cases of chronic diseases such as cancer, neurological disorders, and cardiovascular diseases due to rise in alcohol consumption, unhealthy eating habits, smoking, & sedentary lifestyle coupled with rise in awareness toward early diagnosis of diseases. In addition, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, strategic collaborations & acquisitions of key players, and significant development in digital radiology boost the growth of the market. However, high maintenance requirement of mobile imaging equipment as well as low flexibility of moving the mobile imaging units hamper the market growth. In addition, dearth of skilled radiologists hinder the market growth, as mobile imaging is a relatively new service in the medical industry. On the contrary, high growth potential exhibited by emerging markets creates opportunity for manufacturers to capitalize in the market.

However, the outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted workflows in the healthcare sector around the world. The disease has forced a number of industries to halt their operations & functioning temporarily, including several subdomains of healthcare. Conversely, due to increase in the prevalence of COVID-19, the demand for various services, including mobile imaging such as CT scanning and X-ray has been witnessed to increase considerably, as there is growing need for diagnostic testing of COVID-19-suspected cases. Furthermore, in April 2020, Carestream Health Company announced that company has increased manufacturing of portable, diagnostic imaging systems such as DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray System and DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System in response to novel COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, surge in demand for these mobile imaging services due to the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to drive the market for mobile imaging.

Analyst Review

Mobile imaging technology is primarily used in the diagnosis of diseases by providing detailed images of the body. Mobile imaging has various innovative applications in areas such as cardiology, neurology, and women’s health. Mobile imaging services offer direct X-ray, electrocardiogram (EKG), and ultrasound services to medical facilities and residential and private sectors. The approach is cheaper and faster as compared to conventional and in-house imaging services. Mobile imaging technology helps create visual representations of the interior parts of the body so that medical practitioners can analyze organs and tissues to determine if invasive or noninvasive medical interventions are required. Medical imaging in healthcare consists of tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT scans), ultrasounds, positron emission tomography (PET scans) and X-rays.

Increase in prevalence of chronic diseases coupled with awareness toward early diagnosis of diseases, emergence of COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, strategic collaborations & acquisitions of key players, and significant development in digital radiology boost growth of the market. Furthermore, high growth potential exhibited by emerging markets create a lucrative opportunity for manufacturers to invest in the near future. However, high maintenance requirement, low flexibility of moving the mobile imaging units, and shortage of skilled radiologists are some factors, which are expected to hinder growth of the market.
