Global Medical Imaging Agents Market 2019-2026: Production of Radiopharmaceuticals from Cyclotrons Presents Opportunities

DUBLIN, Oct. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Medical Imaging Agents Global Market - Forecast to 2026" report has been added to's offering.

The Medical imaging agents market is expected to grow at mid-single-digit CAGR from 2019 to 2026 to reach $12,290.7 million by 2026.

Medical imaging agents global market by molecule/isotope segmented into contrast agents and nuclear medicine. According to the author, the contrast agents' global market is expected to grow at a mid-single-digit CAGR from 2019 to 2026.

Iodine-based contrast agents market held the largest market revenue in 2019 and the microbubble segment is the fastest-growing segment at double-digit CAGR from 2019 to 2026 due to expansion in disease indications. Based on ionicity, the Iodine-based contrast agent is segmented into ionic and non-ionic.

Non-Ionic Iodine-based contrast agents market accounted for the largest share in 2019. Non-ionic iodine contrast agents are used more because of lower osmolality, they are better tolerated and another advantage is that they appear to have less toxicity. Ionic Iodine based contrasts are further segmented by its chemical structure into monomers and dimers.

Monomers market accounted for the largest share in 2019. Non-Ionic Iodine based contrasts are further segmented by its chemical structure into monomeric and dimeric. Monomerics market accounted for the largest share in 2019 and is projected to grow at a low single-digit CAGR from 2019 to 2026 as they are safer and tolerable when compared to ionic contrast agents and low osmolar agents do not dissociate into a particle in solution and helps in reducing the neurotoxicity.
