Computed Tomography Market Size and Growth Rate From 2023 to 2032

Market Overview

The computed tomography market includes types of computed tomography, such as portable CT scanners and stationary CT scanners. Computed tomography refers to the procedure of computerized x-ray imaging in which a narrow beam of x-ray is aimed quickly rotated around the body and at a patient.

The increasing focus on mobile CT scanners, growing emphasis on early and effective disease diagnosis, rising demand for computed tomography scanners, and increasing number of CT scan procedures are expected to drive the growth of the market. In addition, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular, orthopedics, and cancer diseases, increasing collaboration and partnerships between companies and hospitals, and rising product confirmation by regulatory authorities creating several new opportunities are anticipated to drive the growth of the computed tomography market during the forecast period.

The swift procedures, highly detailed images, and precise results fuel the market growth.

Computed tomography is a safe, fast, and pain-free procedure for patients. Patients who are referred to doctors and scanned efficiently can access results immediately. Computed tomography scans are produced to detect abnormalities, as well as highly detailed images and high-resolution images that do not appear in other scans. This is important when determining whether a patient reduces the need for exploratory surgery and requires surgery, not to mention that it plays a crucial role in the treatment and diagnosis of certain cancers.

In addition, the highly detailed images provide accurate and precise results, ensuring the best treatment plan for diagnosis, especially in the treatment of cancers and tumors. Computed tomography provides precise and clear diagnosis and accurately scans targeted parts of the patient’s body. This CT scan process is done by highly trained radiologists and radiographers and offers highly personalized patient care. These are the major driving factors anticipated to enhance the growth of the computed tomography market.

However, the restraint of computed tomography also causes toxic emission of radiation such as X-rays, which can have harmful effects on a patient’s health when the person is frequently exposed. During computed tomography scans, sometimes doctors may suggest the use of contrast, which may have some complications depending on the person's health, including toxic effects and allergic reactions on the body.

Some CT scans create some X-ray radiation and affect the patient’s body negatively, which may cause kidney problems. Some CT scans are time-consuming and expensive for routine healthcare checkups. Computed tomography may be affected by technical glitches. These are some challenging factors that may restrain the growth of the computed tomography market.
