Positron Emission Tomography is an imaging test that examines the chemical activity in parts of the body. In this test, tracer is injected, swallowed or inhaled, depending on which organ or tissue is being studied. The tracer accumulates in diseased areas of the body that have higher levels of chemical activity. On a PET scan, these areas show up as bright spots. The Global Positron Emission Tomography Devices (PET) Market is expected to grow at an approximate CAGR of 5.6% during forecast period, 2018–2023.
Increasing cases of head and neck cancer is the key factor driving the positron emission tomography devices (PET) market. According to the 2018 data suggested by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, around 5,091 new cases of head and neck cancer were diagnosed and around 1,034 number of deaths occurred from head and neck cancer in Australia.
Various other factors such as increasing cases of cancer, technological advancements, presence of a large target patient population and rising patient awareness regarding the benefits of positron emission tomography scanning are also expected to propel the growth of the market. However, stringent regulatory guidelines, cost associated with PET scan, and shorter half-life of radioisotopes can hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
