Latin America Nuclear Imaging Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The nuclear imaging market size in Latin America was worth USD 1.26 billion in 2022 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 7.99% during the forecast period and worth USD 1.86 billion by 2027.

The growth of the Latin American nuclear imaging market is primarily driven by technological improvements in the nuclear imaging area, such as the integration of two or more standalone diagnostic imaging modalities, which increases the procedure's usage. In addition, the rise in the number of cases of illness and diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and neurological condition around the region is driving demand for nuclear imaging therapies, which is propelling market expansion. 

One of the key causes driving the economy is the exact, precise, and high-quality images digitally generated when radiations are administered to the patient. These images provide organ-specific diagnoses, which leads to illness treatment for the growth of the market.

Nuclear imaging scans are cost-effective, which boosts the market's growth. In addition, the market is growing due to rising awareness of the benefits of nuclear imaging among clinical researchers and clinicians and an increase in the number of applications such as oncology and neurology. Furthermore, the nuclear imaging market is being propelled by the rise in the worldwide geriatric population and the discovery and development of new radiotracers.

However, the lack of availability of radionuclide, the most extensively used isotope for nuclear medicine imaging scans, is expected to impede the growth rate of the Latin American nuclear imaging market. Several healthcare providers have aligned themselves with group-buying organizations (GPOs), integrated health networks (IHNs), and integrated delivery networks (IDNs) in response to increased government pressure to reduce healthcare costs (IDNs). These groups pool their members' purchasing power and negotiate with medical equipment suppliers and manufacturers to lower prices. For example, for mass purchasing of nuclear imaging devices, GPOs, IHNs, and IDNs engage in extensive negotiations. As of 2019, hospital budgets have been drastically decreased due to increased prescription drug costs and a sharp reduction in anticipated budget allocations for Health and Human Services in the United States. According to a study conducted by the American Hospital Association, government funding cuts to hospitals will total USD 218 billion by 2028, causing institutions to designate reduced annual budgets.
