The Africa Nuclear Imaging Market has been estimated to be valued at USD XX billion for the year 2015 and is projected to reach USD XX million by 2020 at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period 2015 to 2020.

Nuclear imaging is a technique that uses low doses of radioactive substances for diagnosis and treatment of a disease. The two major techniques of nuclear imaging used are PET (positron emission tomography) and SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) scan. The emerging market trend is fusion of nuclear imaging with different diagnostic imaging products such as PET/CT, SPECT/CT, and MRI/PET. 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.

Nuclear imaging technique is applied in the fields of oncology, cardiology, lymphoma, thyroid, neurology and others. 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 increasing incidence and prevalence of Cancer and cardiac Ailments, increasing demand for SPECT and PET, improving advancements in the technology and growing awareness amongst physicians and public are major driving factors for the growth of the market. Integration of X ray tomography (CT) into SPECT/PET fuels the market growth. However, some of the major constraints for the market are shorter half- life of radioisotopes, high capital investment, regulatory guidelines and reimbursement issues.

The Africa Nuclear Imaging Market is segmented based on the type of radioisotopes which includes radioisotopes for diagnostic purpose. Diagnostic radioisotope segment is sub-divided into SPECT isotopes (Technetium-99m (TC-99m), Thallium-201 (TL-201), Iodine (I-123) and Gallium) and PET radioisotopes (Fluorine-18, Rubidium-82 (RB-82)).

Based on geography, the market is segmented into Egypt, Kenya, Algeria, South Africa and Rest of Africa.

Many players in this market are trying to expand their product portfolio in order to top the global market. While few companies are entering into the market by acquisitions, top companies are expanding their growth in this market by acquiring other companies. Few companies adopted product innovation and new product launches as its key business strategy to ensure its dominance in this market.
