The diagnostic devices (or) equipment market consists of sales of diagnostic equipment and related services by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that produce diagnostic equipment used in diagnosis of various diseases. This industry includes establishments that produce diagnosis equipment such as X-ray systems, ultrasound systems, computed tomography (CT) scanners, magnetic resonance imaging systems and other diagnostics equipment.
The global diagnostic imaging equipment market is expected to decline from $44.3 billion in 2019 to $36.5 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -17.7%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it. The governments across the countries prioritized covid-19 screening and imaging is not routinely used to screen for COVID-19. Also, most of the factories manufacturing diagnostic imaging equipment such as X-ray systems, ultrasound systems, computed tomography (CT) scanners, and MRI systems and/or their components, are currently shutdown inorder to keep the staff safe and contain the spread. The market is then expected to recover and grow at a CAGR of 5% from 2021 and reach $54.2 billion in 2023.
