2022 CT Machine Market Scale and Future Development Trend Forecast

Published Date: 2022-06-22
China's CT equipment market is in a stage of rapid development, and the sales volume and market size of CT equipment are showing a trend of rapid growth. On the one hand, with the increase of investment in the medical and health industry, the improvement of people's health awareness, the gradual implementation of hierarchical diagnosis and treatment, and the increased support for primary medical institutions in my country, the demand for CT equipment in hospitals will continue to increase, and the penetration of CT equipment will continue to increase. will continue to strengthen. During the new coronary pneumonia in 2020, CT images have become an important basis for disease diagnosis. The advantages of CT in disease screening and diagnosis and the necessity of equipment in primary hospitals will become more prominent, which will further promote the market demand. It is expected that domestic CT equipment manufacturers with advanced technology and industrialization capabilities will show a good growth trend in the market.

In 2019, the total size of China's CT market reached 11.6 billion yuan, accounting for 14.2% of the overall market size of China's medical imaging equipment. It is estimated that by 2024, the scale of China's CT equipment market will grow to 17.2 billion yuan, with a compound annual growth rate of 8.2%.

In general, every two to three years, new technologies are applied to the high-end of the product line, taking the place of the original high-end products. The original high-end products give way to the replacement products. The technology of the original high-end products will also be transferred to the products in the middle and low-end markets along the path of product extension. Some improvements in mid- and low-end products (such as some new features or cost reduction results) can also be extended upward to high-end products.

In recent years, Siemens, Toshiba and General Electric have devoted their respective development directions to different fields: Siemens pays more attention to the speed (time resolution) of image acquisition, which is the key to determining the quality of cardiac scan images; Toshiba is fully committed to scanning coverage Expansion of the range seeks to cover a larger area per acquisition; GE puts more emphasis on improving the spatial resolution of the images for definitive diagnosis of smaller lesions.

In addition, due to the impact of the new medical reform and the active renewal of basic medical facilities in various provinces and cities across the country, the demand for CT equipment in primary medical institutions has shown a significant growth trend, and China's primary medical market is vast, and the installed capacity of CT in the past is also in the A very low level, so there is huge room for development.
