Diagnostic Radiopharmaceuticals and Contrast Media Market Is Estimated to Witness High Growth Owing to Increasing Incidence of Cancer and Cardiovascular Diseases

The Diagnostic Radiopharmaceuticals and Contrast Media market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6,811.4 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals and contrast media are used with diagnostic imaging techniques like CT, MRI, and ultrasound to diagnose and detect various diseases. Radiopharmaceuticals help in nuclear imaging procedures like PET and SPECT scans by emitting gamma rays that help produce images of organs and tissues. Contrast media are administered to patients to enhance the visibility of structures or fluids within the body during medical imaging. They find wide application in diagnostic procedures for diseases like cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and neurological disorders.

Market Dynamics:

The diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals and contrast media market is primarily driven by the increasing incidence of cancer and cardiovascular diseases globally. According to the World Health Organization, cancer accounted for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020. Further, cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death globally, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives each year. The rising disease burden is fueling the demand for diagnostic imaging modalities like CT, MRI, PET, and SPECT that utilize radiopharmaceuticals and contrast media. Additionally, technological advancements in imaging techniques and continued development of novel contrast agents are also propelling market growth over the forecast period.

The market is witnessing high demand for targeted radiopharmaceuticals which can specifically identify cancer cells or tumors. Numerous clinical trials are being conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of such novel targeted drugs. In addition, a promising pipeline of diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals and contrast media is anticipated to enter the market in the coming years, further complementing revenue growth.

SWOT Analysis

Strength: The diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals and contrast media market has strong research and development capabilities. Many key players are engaged in new product launches which expands their product portfolios. Moreover, rising healthcare expenditure globally increases investment in this market.

Weakness: High costs associated with development and manufacturing of diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals and contrast media makes them expensive for common users. Stringent regulations delay approval and launch of new products.
