Europe MRI Market - Growth, Trends And Forecasts (2017 - 2022)

The European MRI market is expected to reach $1,280 million growing at a CAGR of 5.9% by 2020. MRI is an advanced diagnostic tool that is fast replacing technologies such as CT as it is more sensitive and safe since it does not use ionizing radiations. MRI systems are of three types namely, the open system, closed system and the standing or upright system. The open MRI system has a fast growing market as it is preferred over the currently common closed system as it alleviates claustrophobia. With increasing incidences of cardiac, neurological and gastrointestinal diseases and cancers there is a rising demand for good diagnostic tools like MRI.

The European countries such as Germany, UK and Sweden have excellent healthcare setups making technologies like MRI more accessible. The per capita income in these countries is also higher which makes these advanced techniques affordable. The rising aging population and the increasing incidence of cardiac, neurological, gastrointestinal diseases and cancers in these countries have increased the demand for advanced diagnostic tools like MRI as better diagnosis ensures better treatment. The MRI systems market can be segmented on the basis of structure (Open, Closed and Standing), resolution (low field, mid field and high field), applications (Neurological, Gastrointestinal, Cardiology and Oncology) and regionally (UK, France, Sweden, Germany and other countries). Some of the key players are GE, Hitachi Medical Corporation, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare and Toshiba Medical Systems.


Advanced healthcare facilities and advancements in technology drive the market. There is an increase in the aging population and incidence in diseases increasing the demand for advanced healthcare facilities like MRI.


Though the technology is considered safe, the numbers of accidents associated have been increasing as the magnetic field is dangerous when the patients have embedded devices such as pacemakers and cochlear implants.
