India Diagnostic Imaging Services Market Executive Summary

The India Diagnostic Imaging Services market size was valued at $9.54 Bn in 2022 and is estimated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9 % from 2022 to 2030 and will reach $17.54 Bn in 2030. The use of several imaging technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of medical diseases is referred to as "diagnostic imaging" in India. These technologies include X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine studies. In India, diagnostic imaging services are widely obtained via hospitals, clinics, and private imaging centres. The nation's universal healthcare system regularly sponsors and provides these treatments, however there are private options available for people who would rather pay out of pocket.

New technology and improvements are continuously being introduced, and this sector of diagnostic imaging is no exception. Companies who can remain ahead of the curve and use the most recent imaging technology would benefit from this. In developing nations like India, China, and Brazil, there is a rising need for diagnostic imaging services. Businesses who can develop a large presence in these markets can take advantage of a sizable growth potential. The need for diagnostic imaging services is increasing as the world's population ages. Cancer, heart disease, and neurological illnesses are just a few of the ailments that older persons are more likely to need medical imaging for.

Diagnostic imaging is anticipated to be used more often as customised medicine spreads. Imaging tests can assist doctors in customising treatment strategies to meet the unique needs of individual patients, producing more successful results. Rapid growth in telemedicine creates potential for businesses that can deliver diagnostic imaging services remotely. This is crucial in locations that lack access to healthcare services, such as rural or underdeveloped areas. Overall, the diagnostic imaging market offers a wide range of possibilities for businesses that can innovate, grow into developing markets, and satisfy shifting patient and healthcare provider expectations.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

In India, the market for diagnostic imaging is anticipated to develop significantly over the next few years as a result of a number of reasons, including rising healthcare costs, an ageing population, and an increase in the frequency of chronic illnesses. The need for cutting-edge diagnostic tools like MRI, CT, and PET is rising, and this demand is a major growth driver. The Indian government has also put in place a number of programmes to increase access to healthcare, such as the Ayushman Bharat programme, which offers health insurance coverage to more than 500 million people.

Market Restraints

The diagnostic imaging market in India may also be constrained by a number of issues, including expensive equipment prices, a shortage of specialists with the necessary training, and insufficient infrastructure in some areas. Many patients, especially those in rural areas, may not have access to these technologies due to the high cost of diagnostic imaging equipment and the absence of reimbursement policies in many regions of the nation.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

The Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) and the Medical Council of India are in charge of regulating diagnostic imaging procedures and equipment in India (MCI). The following are some of the main rules:

Radiation Safety: Limits on patient exposure to ionising radiation are determined by radiation safety rules, which diagnostic imaging equipment must abide with. Moreover, these standards mandate the routine repair and inspection of imaging equipment.

Medical devices: Diagnostic imaging equipment falls under the definition of a medical device and is subject to the 2017 Medical Device Regulations (MDR). This involves conformity testing, adherence to safety regulations, and registration with the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO).

Data protection: The Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 (now ongoing legislation), as well as other pertinent data protection laws, must be followed in order to preserve patient data obtained during diagnostic imaging treatments.

Certification: To utilise the equipment and adhere to certain protocols, medical practitioners who operate diagnostic imaging equipment must be qualified.

Patient data collected during diagnostic imaging procedures must be protected in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 (currently pending legislation) and other relevant data protection regulations.

Approval: AERB approval is required before new diagnostic imaging technology may be employed in clinical settings.
