Global Magnetic Resonance Imaging Market size was valued at USD 7.2 Billion in 2024 and is expected to reach USD 15.6 Billion by 2033, at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period 2024 – 2033.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Market: Overview

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive medical imaging method that produces detailed pictures of the body’s interior architecture. It uses a high magnetic field and radio waves to provide extremely clear pictures of tissues, organs, and other structures.

During an MRI scan, the patient lies within a big, cylindrical scanner while the magnetic field aligns the hydrogen atoms in the body. Radiofrequency pulses are subsequently administered, causing these atoms to generate signals that may be detected by the MRI machine’s sensors.

High-field MRI systems are becoming increasingly popular owing to their superior picture quality and diagnostic accuracy, particularly in neurology and cancer.

Furthermore, there is a growing emphasis on creating MRI-compatible interventional and surgical equipment, allowing for less invasive operations guided by real-time imaging. The third provision of sophisticated MRI methods that include functional MRI (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) are becoming more widely used to examine brain function and connections.

Additionally, there is a tendency towards the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms into MRI structures, allowing for quicker image capture, reconstruction, and interpretation.

Furthermore, there is a greater emphasis on patient comfort and enjoyment, resulting in developments like as wide-bore and open MRI systems. In general, these developments demonstrate a determined effort to improve imaging quality and broaden therapeutic uses.

By product, the closed systems segment held the highest market share in 2023 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2033. Closed MRI systems dominate the MRI industry because of their higher picture quality, low noise levels, and capacity to accommodate a wide spectrum of patients, making them the favored option for diagnostic imaging.

By field strength, the midfield strength segment held the highest market share in 2023 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2033. Mid-field strength magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems are propelling the market because they strike a compromise between imaging quality and cost-effectiveness, making them appropriate for a wide variety of clinical uses.

By application, the brain and neurological segment held the highest market share in 2023 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2033. Brain and neurological diseases demand regular diagnostic imaging, which drives the MRI industry. MRI’s enhanced ability to see soft tissues and detect anomalies makes it essential for diagnosing and monitoring neurological illnesses.

North America dominates the MRI market owing to improved healthcare infrastructure, advances in technology, high healthcare spending, large market demand, and the existence of prominent industry players.

Hitachi Ltd. is a worldwide company that operates in the fields of information technology, electronic devices, electrical systems, social infrastructure, manufacturing equipment, and construction machines.
