MediPoint: Contrast Media - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts

Summary

Contrast media are a group of pharmaceuticals that aid in the enhanced delineation of tissues to better direct the diagnosis of disease. These drugs are separated into three major areas of diagnostic imaging: computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound (echocardiographic contrast media).

The report analyzes the contrast media market at the category (CT, MRI, and ultrasound) and subcategory (ionic, non-ionic, barium, paramagnetic and superparamagnetic) levels, highlighting trends and issues affecting the utilization, volume, and value of contrast media at a country level.

Key topics discussed include: the declining utilization of barium contrast agents due to the emergence of endoscopy and CT colonography as favorable alternatives for gastrointestinal imaging, and the effects that recent safety concerns surrounding paramagnetic contrast media may have on the MRI contrast media market.

Highlights

Key Questions Answered

- What is the current and future outlook of the contrast media in developed and emerging markets?
- What are unmet needs in the contrast media market? What are the clinical and non-clinical barriers in this space? What is hampering innovation within this market?
- What trends are affecting the global contrast media market?

Key Findings

- Emerging economies are seeing the highest growth in the global contrast media market.
- CT contrast media is the largest segment in terms of value an volume across the 10MM covered due to the necessity of image enhancement being required in these settings. MRI contrast is second and ultrasound contrast is last but growing at the largest CAGR over the forecast period.
- The contrast media market is well established, with a small collection of players providing a comprehensive product range which meet the majority of the needs of its consumer base.
- With the products offered between the major 4 competitors in this market being very similar, prices are very competitive and are set to become even more competitive as more generic contrasts enter the market. This competitive pricing has led to a price squeezing which some KOLs feel have hampered the development of new contrast media.

Scope

- Competitive assessment: Currently marketed contrast media products and evolving competitive landscape
- In-depth analysis of practice patterns and adoption trends of different segments and sub-segments of contrast media
- Insightful review of the key industry drivers, opportunities, restraints and challenges. Each trend is independently researched to provide qualitative analysis of its implications
- Other key topics covered include utilization trends, market access, reimbursement considerations, and implications for the overall market
- Market share analysis of the competition in different regions
- Annualized Individual and cumulative sales units and market revenues for the CT (Ionic, Non-ionic and Barium), MRI (Paramagnetic and Superparamagnetic) and Ultrasound contrast media (Microbubbles in echocardiography) market from 2012-2022

  • Global Contrast Media Market to Surpass $6 Billion by 2022, says GlobalData

    The global market for contrast media, which are substances used in medical imaging which enhance the visibility of structures or fluids within the body, is set to rise from just over $4.3 billion in 2015 to over $6 billion by 2022, representing a compound annual growth rate of 4.9%, according to research and consulting firm GlobalData.

    The company’s latest report* states that this growth, which will occur across the 10 major markets (10MM) of the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, Japan, Brazil, China, and India, will be driven by a number of factors, including increases in the number of annual computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and echocardiogram procedures as well as an increasing disease burden across the 10MM.

    Amendeep Sanghera, GlobalData’s Analyst covering Medical Devices, explains: “The contrast media market is old and well-established, with products being used in a wide array of indications. As populations rise across the global, disease rates inevitably grow, along with the need for diagnostic investigations and therefore contrast media.

    “Better healthcare systems and education across numerous regions are also driving the contrast media market. For example, there is a particular focus in developed countries to screen patients for certain diseases such as breast and colorectal cancer in order to catch disease early and increase the likelihood of a patient’s survival, and this practice is now spreading to developing countries.”

    GlobalData’s report also states that the market has no real competition besides the players already in it, as no other non-invasive imaging modality is able to provide comparative results as quickly, safely, and easily to patients. However, generic contrast media manufactures may acquire market share if they are able develop a reputable brand provided at a lower cost than the four leading market players: GE Healthcare, Bayer, Bracco, and Guerbet.

    Sanghera adds: “Due to excellent safety profiles, image enhancement, and wide indication coverage, contrast media have become a mainstay of modern medicine. Nuclear medicine could be a competitor in the future, but for now the contrast media market is in a stable position.”
