As per our report, the size of the global contrast injector market was worth USD 612.44 million in 2023 and is projected to be growing at a CAGR of 8.1% and will reach USD 904.04 million by 2028.
The contrast injector is used to inject contrast media or agents into the blood to increase the contrast of the structure of fluids within the body in medical imaging. The contrast media absorb or alter the external electromagnetism or the ultrasound and give an accurate image in medical imaging. Contrast media are commonly used to improve the visibility of blood vessels and the gastrointestinal tract. Different contrast media are used in medical imaging, depending on the type of medical imaging. An automation injection system helps to deliver a precise amount of contrast.
The injection of contrast media enables visualization of various ailments through X-ray, CT, MRI, or other medical-imaging modalities into the bloodstream. The delivery of contrast media is considered most effective by implementing a medical device for this purpose, known as a contrast injector or power injector. Plungers, in contrast, injectors, push the contrast media into the tubing connected to a patient's vascular system. Contrast injectors are controlled by a computer-controlled unit in the room, where volumes and flow rates of the media are programs, and the start & stop mechanisms are controlled. The device can be programmed to deliver specific amounts of contrast agents at accurate flow rates.
The growing number of contrast agent approvals and developments in the technology increasing funding by the governments primarily propel the global contrast injector market.
The use of medical imaging in the healthcare sector is increasing the demand for more accurate imaging, which is estimated to support the growth of the global contrast injector market. Growing awareness of the benefits of utilizing these injectors is enhancing market growth. In addition, increasing investments in innovative products in healthcare is likely to bolster the market's growth rate. The key players in the market are using different software and IT to improve technological solutions, promoting contrast media market growth.
Growing prevalence of chronic diseases and advanced diagnostic procedures to drive market growth.
The rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as CVDs, diabetes, cancer, neurological disorders, and others, which lead to more surgeries and more diagnostic procedures, are driving the demand for contrast media procedures. According to WHO statistics, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) account for 41 million annual fatalities, or 74% of all fatalities worldwide. In addition, 17 million people worldwide pass away from an NCD before they turn 70 each year; 86% of these untimely deaths occur in low- and middle-income nations. Most NCD deaths, or 17.9 million people each year, are caused by cardiovascular diseases, followed by cancers (9.3 million), chronic respiratory diseases (4.1 million), and diabetes causes over 2 million deaths. Additionally, the growing advances in diagnostic procedures that make disease diagnosis more efficient, like CT scans, X-rays, MRI, ultrasound, and others, also support the market's growth.
A growing number of technological advancements further drive the contrast media market growth.
Contrast injectors assist clinicians better than angiography techniques and help the workflow of healthcare systems. The procedure helps eradicate any mistakes in the treatment, properly collects and manages data, and helps to avoid repeated scans, thus making the task easier for the staff. Moreover, contrast injectors are more efficient and easier to control than other procedures. In addition, the contrast injectors, in terms of technological advancements, provide a better user interface with LCD and touch-enabled display screens for monitoring the patient's vitals and the internal connectivity of the procedure with the hospital's I.T. systems like electronic health records (EHR) to maintain records without the chances of any human error.
The shortage of trained and skilled professionals to operate also impedes the growth of the contrast injector market. In addition, some people experience rash, skin redness, vomiting, or dizziness which could last for one hour or longer with the regular use of a contrast injector, which is projected to hamper the growth rate of the contrast injector market to some extent.
Impact of Covid-19 on the global contrast injector market:
The pandemic has had a severe impact on hospitals and the economy around the world. Several medical facilities were told to stop performing elective surgical procedures and medical tests to prevent the spread of the disease and save healthcare services for COVID-19 patients. Contrast media injector devices are known for injecting contrast media or agents into the body to increase tissue exposure during medical imaging procedures. During the treatment, these media injectors provide a continuous and controlled flow of contrast media into the patient's body. Many imaging techniques, such as computed tomography (C.T.), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and angiography, are used to diagnose. Therefore, the need for contrast injectors would be primarily determined by the amount of diagnostic imaging and the number of C.T. and MRI machines installed. During this pandemic, diagnostic imaging demand increased due to increased demand for the contrast injector market. As a result, Covid-19 will have a positive effect on the growth of the contrast injector market.
