The global Molecular Imaging Market Growth Accelerated by Rising Adoption of Non-invasive Techniques

Molecular imaging techniques are extensively used in non-invasive preclinical and clinical imaging. These molecular imaging methods can provide visualization, characterization and measurement of biological processes taking place at cellular and subcellular levels within living subjects. Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) are the most commonly used molecular imaging techniques. They help in early and accurate diagnosis of various conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases and neurological disorders with the help of targeted molecular probes.

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 key trends:

The increasing adoption of non-invasive molecular imaging techniques like PET and SPECT imaging for diagnosis is one of the major trends fueling the market growth. These techniques provide functional and molecular information about various biochemical processes happening inside the body. They help detect diseases at an early stage and further guide targeted treatment with minimum adverse effects. As compared to other invasive diagnostic methods, molecular imaging techniques reduce healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes significantly. Hence, their demand is growing rapidly across various clinical applications like oncology, cardiology and neurology.
