Published: August 2016
No. of Pages: 161

The global preclinical imaging market is estimated to grow at a high CAGR of 6.2% during 2016-2021; and is expected to be valued at USD 910.4 million by 2021. Although the mature markets (North America and Europe) held large share of preclinical imaging market in 2015; Asia-Pacific region is poised to be the fastest growing region during next five years. Factors such as continuous government support for pharmaceutical and biotechnology R&D, increasing public-private investments to support radioisotope production, rising number of translational research activities, and evolving regulatory scenario across major Asian countries are propelling the growth of the preclinical imaging market in Asia-Pacific region.

Market growth in the global preclinical imaging market is mainly driven by factors such technological advancements in the field of molecular imaging, increasing market demand for non-invasive small animal imaging techniques, and growing number of public-private initiatives and funding to support preclinical researches. In addition, emerging markets (such as China and India) are offering new growth opportunities for preclinical imaging market players.

Geographically, North America is estimated to command the largest share of the global preclinical imaging market in 2016, followed by Europe. The large market share of the North American region can be attributed to the robust R&D infrastructure for life science researches, fast adoption of novel molecular imaging technologies, significant presence of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and increasing preference of end users for multimodality systems. However, continued outsourcing of in-house preclinical studies to emerging countries by U.S.-based pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and reduced R&D expenditure by the Canadian government to support research studies are negatively affecting the growth of the preclinical imaging market in this region.

The preclinical imaging market isfairly competitive, with a large number of global and local manufacturers of preclinical imaging solutions. PerkinElmer, Inc. (U.S.), Bruker Corporation (U.S.), and FUJIFILM Holding Corporation (Japan) were the top three players in the preclinical imaging market in 2015. These companies together accounted for a share of 63.2% of the global preclinical imaging market in 2015. New product launches and product enhancements; geographic expansions; and partnerships, agreements, and collaborations are the major strategies adopted by most of the market players to achieve growth in the preclinical imaging market.
