Integration of advanced technology with traditional high pressure contrast media injectors is the prime factor driving the market. This includes IT-enabled solutions for syringeless and high pressure automated injectors. In recent years, syringeless power injectors have developed widespread popularity to reduce contrast media waste. In addition, syringeless injectors have been shown to shorten exam times, resulting in a higher patient turnover. However, the high cost of high pressure contrast media injectors, consumables, and accessories, on the other hand, is restraining the market's expansion to some extent.

The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is also anticipated to significantly impact the growth of the market. Outpatient department services at clinics, nursing homes, dispensaries, and smaller hospitals have been limited by lockdown and social distancing, resulting in fewer referrals for imaging tests. The patient movement has been restricted as well. Patients are postponing non-urgent investigations due to financial stress. A minor decline is expected in imaging volumes and revenues as outpatient elective imaging investigations are not insured and patients' out-of-pocket spending capacity is reduced which may have a negative impact on the market. In the long run, however, digital health services such as telemedicine/teleradiology, artificial intelligence, and deep learning technologies are expected to accelerate and gain widespread acceptance.

As artificial intelligence penetrates the healthcare industry, manufacturers of high pressure contrast media injectors are focusing on the development of intelligent devices to minimize the possibility of human error. Advancements in the form of interface systems such as Radiology Information System (RIS), and Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS) are useful in collecting patient information and administering the appropriate amount of contrast required. To make efficient use of smart technology penetration, Bracco Group Company has developed specific high pressure contrast media injectors for intravenous procedures in CT and MRI.

Product Insights

The consumable segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 61.3% in 2020. The segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 11.7% during the forecast period. The rapid growth of this segment can be attributed to the factors such as high usage of disposable devices owing to the high safety, as well as features like user-friendliness, high efficiency, and less contrast media wastage. The consumable segment is further segmented into syringes, tubings, and others. These consumables need to be re-purchased for every new procedure as opposed to instruments. The other consumables held the largest market share in 2020 whereas the syringe segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate. Several major manufacturers are emphasizing their efforts on the development and introduction of syringeless injectors, which is expected to boost the segment's growth.

The injector system segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period, attributed to the rising product demand as the injector system can be used in multiple patients. As a result, there is less wastage, a shorter contrast preparation time, reduced disposable expenses, and higher radiographer satisfaction.
