This report examines how new technologies can emerge in the face of economic pressures that may affect the demand for nuclear imaging, and how healthcare reforms are impacting nuclear medicine. The advent of hybrid imaging has enabled PET/CT imaging to undergo explosive growth. However, this has been at the cost of an increased demand on struggling healthcare budgets. PET and SPECT imaging are well established techniques within nuclear imaging, and are the main focus of this report PET imaging uses Positron Emitting radioactive tracers with a short half life, to image metabolically active organs PET combined with CT allows precise anatomical imaging of the body, identifying diseased areas depending upon the tracer used PET/CT is most often used for cancer diagnosis PET/MRI is a new technique that was introduced to reduce patient exposure to radiation PET only systems are now generally considered obsolete, due to the superior imaging quality of PET/CT
According to GlobalData's estimates, based on reported revenues, GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare and Siemens Healthcare account for 87% of the APAC PET and SPECT nuclear imaging market. This can be attributed to product portfolio offerings within nuclear imaging and the wide geographic reach of these companies. These companies are large engineering conglomerates that are able to leverage considerable financial and engineering resources to develop and market capital-intensive premium equipment. In addition, the strong financial positions of these companies ensures that they can also grow inorganically within the segment, and remain technologically competitive. In addition, KOLs indicated that the companies' high market share is also due to the strong support services they provide, enabling them to become the preferred vendors of most facilities.
