Positron Emission Tomography Devices (PET) Market Scenario

Positron emission tomography devices (PET) market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period.

Positron emission tomography is an imaging test that examines the chemical activity in parts of the body. In this test, tracer is injected, swallowed or inhaled, depending on which organ or tissue is being studied. The tracer accumulates in diseased areas of the body that have higher levels of chemical activity. On a PET scan, these areas show up as bright spots.

Rising adoption of PET scanning is one of the key factors driving the positron emission tomography devices (PET) market. On November, 2018, Bioasis Technologies announced positive results from peripheral whole-body PET/CT scan study in non-human primates with lead investigational candidate xB3-001.

Various other factors such as increasing cases of cancer, technological advancements, favourable reimbursement, presence of a large target patient population and rising patient awareness regarding the benefits of positron emission tomography scanning are also expected to propel the growth of the market.

However, stringent regulatory guidelines, cost associated with PET scan, and shorter half-life of radioisotopes can hamper the market growth over the forecast period.


The positron emission tomography devices (PET) market is segmented based on product type, applications, end user and region.

The global market for positron emission tomography devices (PET), by product type is segmented into full ring PET scanners and partial ring PET scanners.

Sources: MRFR Analysis

The Americas dominated the global market for positron emission tomography devices (PET) owing to presence of major market players and increased prevalence of Alzheimer's dementia within the region. As per the data suggested by the Alzheimer's Association, an estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer's dementia in 2018.

Europe is expected to hold the second largest position in the global positron emission tomography devices (PET) market. The market growth in this region is attributed to the government support and improving healthcare related research & development activities.

Asia Pacific was projected to be the fastest growing region in 2017. Factors such as, growing cases of head and neck cancer, and increasing healthcare expenditure drives the regional markets of the Asia Pacific region. According to the 2018 data suggested by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, around 5,091 new cases of head and neck cancer were diagnosed and around 1,034 number of deaths occurred from head and neck cancer in Australia.

On the other hand, the Middle East and Africa held least share in the global positron emission tomography devices (PET) market due to the low per capita income, especially within the African region.
