Global Elastography Imaging Market Research Report 2019: Market Size is Expected to Grow from USD 2.5 Billion in 2018 to USD 4.6 Billion by 2024

DUBLIN, May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Elastography Imaging Market by Modality, Application, End User - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The elastography imaging market size is expected to grow from USD 2.5 billion in 2018 to USD 4.6 billion by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.0% during the forecast period.

The elastography imaging market is growing incidence of breast cancer and chronic liver diseases, and a rising preference for minimally invasive procedures across the globe are the key factors driving the market.

Ultrasound segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.

The elastography imaging market, by modality, has been categorized into ultrasound and magnetic resonance elastography, of which the ultrasound segment is the faster-growing segment. Ultrasound imaging involves the imaging of organs by exposing the anatomy to high-frequency sound waves. Ultrasound segment accounted for a larger share of this market.

This is because some of the key advantages such as relatively low cost, quicker procedures, and wider availability. Elasticity imaging or elastography through ultrasound elastography (USE) provides complementary information to conventional ultrasound by adding stiffness as another measurable property to current ultrasound imaging techniques.

Europe is projected to hold the largest market share in the year 2018.

Europe is estimated to be the largest regional market for elastography imaging, followed by North America. The large share of this regional segment is attributed to the ongoing clinical research projects in elastography, the early commercialization of these devices in the region, and the significant healthcare expenditure across mature European countries.
