Global 3D Medical Imaging Equipment Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global 3D medical imaging equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.02% during the forecast period. As a result, the global revenue is estimated to reach USD 18.29 billion by 2027 from USD 13.66 billion in 2022.

The 3d imaging system in healthcare is a new technological advancement that enables healthcare professionals to get more in-depth and precise imaging of the internal organs with minimal radiation or tissue damage. 3d imaging helps get a better picture of the blood vessels and bones from multiple angles for better diagnosis and treatment of various problems. The process uses 3d modeling techniques to derive precise conditions of the tissues in the body. Procedures like MRI scanning, x-rays, and CT scans are now using 3d imaging for accurate results. 3d imaging is used in all different branches of healthcare, such as orthodontics, urologists, cardiologists, gynecologists, and others. They are also used before surgeries for accurate images of the conditions of the organs. Therefore, 3d imaging equipment is an essential device used in healthcare settings. 

Some of the key findings of the report:

  • Based on device type, the CT scanner segment had the leading share of the market in 2021.

  • Based on the Application, the orthopedic segment accounted for a significant market share in 2021.

  • The North American 3D medical imaging equipment market is anticipated to be worth USD 6.06 billion by 2027.

  • Europe's 3D medical imaging equipment market was valued at USD 3.91 billion in 2021.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global 3D medical imaging equipment market:

There are several significant issues with the COVID-19 outbreak that have expanded globally. First, companies incurred substantial financial losses due to the pandemic's interruption of supply and demand networks, which led to lockdown limitations. A rise in cases and patients, as well as a shortage of beds, medical equipment, and healthcare professionals to provide for the patients, significantly negatively influenced the healthcare sector. Finally, the focus was on the COVID patients; less urgent procedures and physicals had to be postponed.

The pandemic hurt the global 3D medical imaging market, like many other markets. The decline in revenue can be attributed to the fact that many healthcare settings shifted their focus to covid patients, and further diagnostics and treatment procedures were either postponed or canceled. In addition, elective surgeries were delayed, and many diagnostic centers and clinics were shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the demand for 3D imaging significantly reduced during the pandemic leading to a loss for the market. However, the market is expected to bounce back during the post covid era.


The growing use of digital imaging technologies in hospitals, such as ultrasonography, has several medical services, including eye examinations, vascular structure studies, and assessments of the health of developing fetuses. In addition, AI is being used by researchers. The development of the project is aided by using current 3D medical imaging systems in radiology to uncover results that are either traceable or not visible to the naked eye. Modern technologies are used in 3D medical imaging systems to deliver quicker results, improved image compression, and high-quality pictures with multidimensional visualization.

The technological advantages and 3D systems support market expansion.

The 3D medical imaging equipment market is driven by technical developments, increasing R&D spending, and government support. The market's rise is caused by the growing elderly population and chronic illnesses requiring quick and precise diagnosis and treatment. In addition, increased adoption and use of 3D medical imaging technology in the pharmaceutical and orthodontic areas are anticipated to fuel market expansion. 3D layout and animation technology aid in the production of biomedical components for organ transplants, as well as 3D Modeling in situations of bone fractures when tissue engineering is necessary. Consequently, 3D design methods are a crucial component of healthcare systems.

The increased cases of diseases and the minimal damage to the tissues and the body done by the 3D medical imaging equipment are promoting its acceptance in the healthcare industry, thus promoting growth. 


The technological obstructions hinder the market with the procedures like MRI, which takes a lot of time, and a CT scan which exposes consumers and doctors to radioactive energy. Additionally, the lack of skilled professionals in the field and reduced funding in healthcare departments are expected to stop market growth.
