Over the past five years, the PET Scanner Manufacturing industry has experienced growth, thanks to a rise in PET utilization among the industry's downstream markets. In particular, PET scanner utilization among oncologists has been high, because PET scanners can be used to diagnose and determine the stages of many types of cancer. During the five years to 2019, industry revenue is forecast to grow at an annualized rate of 5.9% to $8.8 billion. In particular, as PET scanner manufacturers focus on improving the quality and quantity of information that can be gathered in a single scan, healthcare providers will be able to provide more streamlined care, stimulating demand for industry products.
This industry manufactures positron emission tomography (PET) scanners. These machines produce 3D images of functional processes in the body. Unlike CT and MRI scans, PET scans show molecular function and activity, rather than structure, to better differentiate between normal and abnormal tissues.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
