Contrast media injectors are devices used by medical imaging that inject a radio-opaque contrast media into the human body in order to visualize and highlight specific parts of the body. Contrast media are substances that enhance the visibility of tissues and thus help in providing a more precise diagnostic treatment for the patient. Contrast media injectors are used in clinical applications and radiological procedures. The contrast media injectors market is driven by the growth of sophisticated diagnostic and imaging technology. The rising cases of cancer and other diseases have led to the need for precise and effective diagnosis requirement. With the advancement in technology, the market is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years.
In some cases it is seen that the use of contrast media causes an allergic reaction in some patients. This, coupled with the risk of fatality by using contrast media injectors, could prove to be a key challenge for the market’s growth. The lack of trained staff for operating such media injectors could also pose a restraint for the market’s growth. Development in chemical pharmacological technology and new product launches in the market are expected to provide positive growth opportunity for the market. The availability of media injectors integrated with computer systems will stimulate the market growth as such systems are proven to be more effective and accurate.
The market for contrast media injectors can be segmented on the basis of types of media injectors, route of administration and geography. The different types of contrast media injectors are based on their use in different imaging technology. Some of these include X-ray injectors, computed tomography injectors, medical resonance imaging injectors, ultrasound injectors, cardiovascular/angiography injectors and injectors for catheterization laboratory. The route of administration can be oral, rectal, urethral or via injection (intra-arterial, intravenous). The market can be segmented on the basis of geography as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World.
North America is the largest market followed by Europe. This can be attributed to the advancement in technology and high number of market players in such regions. Asia Pacific is an emerging market and is poised to hold significant growth opportunity in the coming years due to drastic improvements in healthcare infrastructure. Some of the key players in the market include Bracco Imaging S.p.A, Medrad Inc., Bayer HealthCare, Covidien Ltd., Nemoto Kyorindo Co. Ltd., Ulrich GmbH & Co. HG and American College of Radiology.
