Growth of Molecular Diagnostics to boost the growth of the Global Molecular Imaging Market

The global Molecular Imaging Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4786.94 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Molecular imaging helps to visualize, characterize, and measure biological processes at the molecular and cellular levels within intact living systems. It provides both anatomical and physiological information and helps in early diagnosis of diseases. Key molecules and biological processes involved in cancer and cardiovascular, neurological and other diseases can be imaged and quantified. Molecular imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), optical imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are gaining importance for non-invasive diagnosis.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the molecular imaging market is the development of combined PET/CT and PET/MRI imaging systems. Combining molecular imaging modalities such as PET with anatomical imaging modalities such as CT and MRI has significant clinical benefits. It helps in getting functional and molecular information together with anatomical details from a single scanning session. Several market players are focusing on launching new combined PET/CT and PET/MRI systems. For instance, in 2022, Siemens Healthineers launched Biograph Vision Quadra, an integrated whole-body PET/CT imaging system.
