Medical imaging reagents are chemicals that improve the image developed through imaging devices. With the use of these reagents, doctors can detect the presence of a tumor and assess if it is benign or malignant and can trace any cancerous spot in the body. The enhancement of medical imaging reagent includes synthesizing it to target a biological process. The imaging systems are then attuned to these enhancements to counteract the particular target. These imaging reagents are first tested on animal research before using on human medical studies.

Increase in demand for functional imaging diagnostics and technologies drives the market growth. Furthermore, key players are attempting to modernize the technology, such as hybrid imaging modalities, to improve the efficiency of the imaging system, which is expected to enhance the market growth of imaging reagents. In addition, the rise in number of cancer patients requiring superior diagnostic imaging technologies fuels the market. However, the shortage of these reagents, stringent regulations, and reluctance in adopting nuclear reagents may restrain the market growth.

Among the class segment, the contrast reagents market accounted for the largest market share. However, the nuclear reagents market is expected to register highest growth rate as they provide better image quality and detection of any disorder in the body.

Among the application, the rise in number of patients with chronic disorders has led the diagnostics application segment to account for the largest share in the overall market. Conversely, the drug discovery & development is anticipated to witness high growth throughout the forecast period as a result of the high adoption rate of medical imaging reagents in pre-clinical trials.

Among the technology segment, the radiopharmaceuticals accounted for highest market share in 2016, owing to increase in awareness regarding the benefits of radioisotopes. Conversely, nanoparticles technology is expected to grow at the highest growth rate.
