The Europe Nuclear imaging market is growing at a healthy trend. Nuclear imaging is the use of radioisotopes for the diagnosis of diseases. The two major types of Nuclear imaging used commonly are PET and SPECT. Till recently, SPECT imaging was the mainstream modality for nuclear medicine applications like nuclear cardiology procedures. However, the trend is soon going to change because of global shortage of molybdenum-99 isotope which is in turn will lead to shortage of Technetium-99, which is the daughter product of molybdenum. Hence, PET imaging products which include hybrid PET-CT scanners hold a potential market size in coming years. The cost associated with PET-CT service can be as high as $275,000 per year. PET market is expected to witness more growth compared to SPECT imaging as it provides higher resolution images and the lack of availability of technetium-99m is propelling industry to look for alternative diagnostic procedures. Analyzing the application segment of SPECT and PET, PET is majorly being used in oncology because of good quality of imaging while SPECT is majorly used in cardiology segment accounting for almost 90% of the market share in cardiology. The European countries have a rising aging population and disease incidence and require advanced technologies like nuclear imaging for diagnosis of diseases. There are good healthcare facilities available making these technologies more accessible. The high per capita income makes these facilities affordable. These are the drivers of the European Nuclear imaging market.

Market is segmented into two major segments SPECT (Technetium-99m (TC-99m), Thallium-201 (TL-201), Iodine (I-123) and others) and PET (Fluorine-18, Rubidium-82 (RB-82) and others). The Market is segmented based on application market into SPECT (cardiology, lymphoma, thyroid, neurology and others) and PET (oncology, cardiology, neurology and others),by geography market (UK, France, Germany, Italy and others). Major players in the market are Cardiarc Ltd., Digirad Corporation, Gamme Medica Inc., GE healthcare, Hologic Inc. etc.

Drivers: Major factors for the growth of the market are increasing use of SPECT and PET analysis in radiopharmaceuticals, increased awareness of people for radiopharmaceuticals, and ready availability of radiopharmaceuticals. Novel applications such as Alzheimers and continually expanding oncology application segment also drive the market.

Constraints: The short half- life of radioisotopes, high capital investment, regulatory guidelines and reimbursement issues are the constraints in this market.
