Growing Applications of Contrast Media Agents in Healthcare to Drive Contrast Media Agents in Healthcare Market Growth

In an aging society where chronic diseases is a leading factor in the health system, technical advancements are necessary to preserve the quality of life through keeping the affordable prices. Chronic diseases can be defined as medical conditions that lasts for one year or more and requires ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living.

Chronic diseases such as cancer, heart diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, and others are the leading causes of death and disability that requires several imaging modalities for diagnostic and treatment monitoring purposes. According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, chronic diseases takes up US$3.3 trillion in annual health care costs.

The rising prevalence of musculoskeletal diseases are the major factors of the market growth. For instance, according to Arthritis Foundation, in 2017, approximately 54 million adults have been diagnosed with arthritis. Almost 300,000 babies and children have arthritis or a rheumatic condition. The common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which affects approximately 31 million Americans. By the end of 2040, number of people expected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis will be above 78 million.

Medical imaging has become essential to medical care and treatment across the globe. Rising awareness regarding early diagnosis of diseases have led to increase in the total number of diagnostic tests procedures performed across the globe. In 2012, Canadians underwent 1.7 million magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams and 4.4 million computed tomography (CT) exams. This represents nearly double the number of such exams performed in 2003. In 2014-15, the national rate for CT scans was 126 per 1,000 people. Rates ranged from highs of 209 (New Brunswick) and 170 (Newfoundland and Labrador) to lows of 88 (Alberta) and 93 (Prince Edward Island). Moreover, according to the National Health Services (NHS) UK, there were 4.1 million imaging tests reported in England in the 12 months from February 2016 to January 2017. Of these, 3.49 million imaging tests were reported to have taken place in January 2017.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), with improved health care policy and increasing availability of medical equipment, the number of global imaging-based procedures is increasing considerably. Thus, the increasing number of diagnostic imaging procedures performed across the globe resulting in increasing requirement of consumables for tests are likely expected to drive the growth of the global contrast media agents over the coming years.
