Industry Insights

The global open MRI systems market size was valued at USD 906.0 million in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% by 2026. Growing incidence of age-associated chronic diseases, changing lifestyle, and high demand for safe & accurate diagnostic methods are among the major factors expected to drive growth of overall market. For instance, as per American Cancer Society, in 2016, brain and spinal cord cancer accounted for about 1.3% of all cancers in the U.S. Increasing need for early and accurate diagnostics tools is expected to positively impact growth during the forecast period.

Open MRI systems pose less risk of panic attacks and claustrophobia, leading to wide acceptance of these systems by patients suffering from these conditions. Open systems are largely preferred for scanning infants and can accommodate obese & stockier patients. Hospitals and diagnostic centers prefer purchasing open systems as they allow diagnostic imaging of a wide range of conditions.

North America open MRI systems market

The growth of this open MRI systems market can be attributed to increasing geriatric population and rising prevalence of cancer globally. For instance, as per American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), 60% of the cancer population is 65 years and older. Availability of effective therapeutic methods and increasing life expectancy are expected to fuel the need for repetitive diagnostic scans for effective disease management, thus boosting demand.

Increasing application of MRI in various diagnostic imaging techniques is expected to boost the demand for these devices. For instance, as per Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in 2017, 111 scans per 1,000 inhabitants were performed in the U.S. Similarly, in Canada, 51 per 1,000 inhabitants MRI exams were performed in 2017, which is expected to contribute to growth over the forecast period.

Increasing trend of preventive healthcare and high demand for early diagnosis are some of the major factors expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period. Most of the major players are focusing on developing advanced open systems with high strength and image quality. This is expected to boost the demand for open MRI systems, which is in turn expected to boost the market.

Field Strength Insights

On the basis of field strength, the market is segmented into low, medium, and high. Low field strength systems include devices with less than 0.5T strength. Medium field systems include devices with 0.5T to 0.9T, whereas high field systems comprise MRI systems with over 0.9T. Low field strength system held the largest share of the market. High field strength systems have various applications in a wide range of conditions including musculoskeletal and spine disorders. Growing application of these systems is expected to boost market demand in developed as well as developing regions.

open MRI systems market

Owing to the limitation of open structure, there are limited number of high strength systems available in the market. However, high strength systems segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the large number of ongoing studies and positive results coupled with technological advancements in these systems to enhance captured images.

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the market is segmented into brain, spine, abdominal, breast, cardiac, and others. Brain segment accounted for the largest share in 2018. Aging impacts neurological health of individuals, thus making them susceptible to various associated disorders. Hence, growing geriatric population is expected to propel the growth of the segment over the forecast period. Owing to the rising incidence of neurological conditions, the need for diagnostic devices is increasing, which in turn is boosting the demand for open systems. Moreover, increasing development of open systems for diagnosing neurological conditions is expected to drive the growth of the brain segment.

The usage of open MRI systems for breast imaging is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Increasing prevalence of breast cancer is fueling the need for open MRI systems for breast imaging. For instance, as per World Cancer Research Fund, in 2018, 2 million new breast cancer cases were reported.

MRI helps in determining anomalies in spine anatomy, trauma injury in bone, ligament, disc, & spinal cord, compression or inflammation of spinal cord & nerves, and other spinal conditions. Hence, the adoption of open MRI systems is expected to grow for spine imaging owing to various advantages associated with these systems.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest share in 2018 owing to presence of a large number of major market players and high adoption of advanced diagnostic technologies. Increase in the application of MRI in diagnosis of a wide range of diseases, favorable government policies, and rise in the number of ambulatory diagnostic centers in the region are some of the major factors expected to drive growth during the forecast period.

Europe accounted for the second largest share of open MRI systems market in 2019. According to OECD, in 2015, Germany accounted for the highest number of MRI scans in the region. The country reported 136 scans per 1,000 inhabitants in the year. In addition, rapidly changing healthcare infrastructure and supportive government policies in the region are among the factors expected to drive the segment growth.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to presence of growing economies including China and India. Increasing medical tourism in the region and intense competition among healthcare service providers are some of the factors expected to boost the demand for advanced MRI systems in the market.

Open MRI Systems Market Share Insights

Some leading players are GE Healthcare, Hitachi Medical Systems, Koninklijke Philips, Siemens Healthcare, Canon Medical Systems Corporation, and ESAOTE. These players are focusing on growth strategies such as launch of new products, innovations in existing products, and mergers & acquisitions. For instance, the introduction of 1.2T MRI by Hitachi and integration of this system with SoftSound technology is considered an important milestone in the market.
