The Global Gamma Camera Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period, in terms of value. The major growth factors are the increasing prevalence of cancer, rising per capita income, and technological advancements in medical imaging devices. North America dominated the market (in terms of value) with nearly 45% share followed by Europe (25%), Asia-Pacific (20%), and Latin America (10%).
A gamma camera is a medical imaging device that detects and records high-energy or ‘gamma’ rays emitted from radioactive materials. The gamma-ray detectors are usually made up of multi-channel semiconductor cameras, which have been widely adopted by nuclear medicine departments for diagnostic purposes across the globe. This type of radiation has very short wavelengths in comparison to visible light and X-rays, making it difficult to detect using conventional methods. Gamma cameras record images based on the number of photons detected during each exposure time frame.
On the basis of Type, the global gamma camera market is segmented into Large Type and Small Type.
A large type gamma camera is a diagnostic imaging tool used to produce high-quality, detailed images of the inside body structures. It uses radioisotopes as well as X-rays for diagnosis and treatment monitoring in various areas such as oncology, cardiology, and neurological diseases. They have large detectors with high resolution of pixels which can provide better image quality. Some of these types have a good depth of penetration that allows the user to take images from different angles without moving or rotating the patient. These cameras use higher radioisotopes in larger quantities than their smaller counterparts do.
Small type gamma cameras are smaller compared to larger types. It is easy for the user to carry it along with them even when they have to travel for a long distance in order to reach patients who need their help. The small size of this device has made it more efficient and convenient than other devices, which gives good convenience of use. This equipment consists of an array detector that helps capture detailed images using fewer exposures without compromising on image quality or resolution.
On the basis of Application, the global gamma camera market is segmented into Thyroid Scanning, Molecular Breast Imaging, Kidney Scanning, and Others.
This imaging modality uses a radioactive isotope produced by a radioisotope generator to produce gamma rays that are used in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disease. The most common use is for nodules, which can be seen on routine scans; this helps determine if they represent cysts or cancerous growths (if malignant). A common example of this is the use of iodine-131 to image metastasic and non-metastatic thyroid cancer.
A gamma camera is used in Molecular Breast Imaging to produce an image of the human body, which helps doctors determine whether a tumor is malignant or benign. A radioactive tracer dye called Tc-99m sulfur colloid emits positrons when it decays and this radiation can be detected by using a Gamma Camera. The data collected from these images will help specialists decide on the next course of treatment for women with breast cancer.
Gamma camera is used in Kidney scanning to scan the kidneys. It helps in detecting and determining any anomalies present within these organs, for example, A gamma imaging test measures how well blood flow travels through each individual kidney when injected with a radioactive tracer such as Tc99m-MAG three. The gamma radiation images are captured on film after an hour so that it shows exactly where blood flows best through your two kidneys. This way proper diagnosis of this disease can be made easily by doctors using Gamma Camera technology.
On the basis of Region, the global gamma camera market is segmented into North America (the U.S., Canada), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico), Europe (France, Germany, Italy), Asia Pacific(Japan), and Middle East & Africa(UAE). North America and Europe would continue their dominance throughout the forecast period due to high adoption rate for technologically advanced equipment's coupled with the rising prevalence of chronic diseases including diabetes, obesity, etc., Over 80% share in overall revenue generated by large type segment can be attributed to North America region primarily driven by the strong presence of leading players along with availability & affordability factors especially in the U.S. Europe followed North America with a sizeable share; this can be attributed to factors such as increasing number of healthcare centers along with generous government funding for research activities coupled with advancements made by manufacturers based out of this region regarding technological developments. However, Asia Pacific countries like China India will witness relatively higher growth during the forecast period, primarily driven by increasing investments from government and private players for the development of nuclear medicine facilities coupled with growing incidences of cancer.
The growth of the global Gamma Camera market is driven by several factors, such as the growing demand for minimally invasive procedures. Since gamma cameras are used in various applications like thyroid scanning, molecular breast imaging, and kidney scanning among others., this factor has increased its importance over the past years. Furthermore, stringent government regulations related to safe healthcare practices will also fuel the growth of this industry during the forecast period. The rising incidence of cancer and technological advancements in medical imaging devices are driving the growth of the global gamma camera market. Increasing per capita income is further propelling the demand for diagnostic products, which is also expected to positively impact this industry over the forecast period.
