Pediatric Radiology Market: Increasing Incidence of Birth Traumas to Drive the Market Growth


As imaging specialism continues to penetrate through the global healthcare landscape, the adoption of radiology in diagnosis and medical imaging operations continues to gain grounds, particularly in pediatric care. Protecting the new-born babies from suffering traumas during or post- birth has fuelled the demand for employing the subspecialty medical imaging science of radiology in pediatric diagnosis. In the future, hospitals and child specialty centers will actively install pediatric radiology devices to improve the diagnosis of young infants and children. However, growing speculations of parents with respect to radiation exposure continues to put pediatric radiology in a bad light. Moreover, education of pediatric radiology remains nascent and radiographers are facing challenges in being updated with the upgradations in pediatric imaging techniques.

Transparency Market Research’s latest forecast study observes that the global pediatric radiology market will expand vigorously in the near future. Despite the considerable restraints, the global adoption of pediatric radiology will reflect robust growth. During the forecast period, 2017-2026, the global pediatric radiology market will register a CAGR of 7.7%. The study further reveals that by the end of 2026, the global pediatric radiology market will touch a valuation of US$ 3.57 Bn. North America will represent the most lucrative marketplace for adoption of pediatric radiology devices. Robust healthcare infrastructure in the US, dense presence of medical device manufacturers and high spending of pediatric care will continue to drive the adoption of pediatric radiology in North America. By the end of 2026, North America’s pediatric radiology market will be worth one-third of global market value forecasted in the report.

Pediatric diagnosis is widely available across hospitals as parents are willing to spend on providing highest level of care for their babies. Reduced hospitalization time and immediate access to treatment options continue to drive hospitals in instating departments on pediatric radiology. By the end of 2026, pediatric radiology devices will be largely used in hospitals, bringing in nearly US$ 1.5 Bn in global revenues. Pediatric clinics, on the other hand, will register fastest end-use by reflecting a value CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period. The report further reveals that standalone devices worth over US$ 1 Bn were sold in the global pediatric radiology market by 2017-end. In terms of modality, standalone devices will remain more convenient for diagnosis and high-tech imaging. The report also reveals that portable modality of pediatric radiology devices will register fastest uptake, reflecting a 9.5% CAGR over the forecast period.
