UAE Nuclear Imaging Equipment Market to grow with a CAGR of 5.12%

Increasing healthcare infrastructure and a supportive regulatory environment are the major drivers for the UAE Nuclear Imaging Equipment Market.

According to TechSci Research report, “UAE Nuclear Imaging Equipment Market Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2018-2028”, UAE Nuclear Imaging Equipment Market has valued at USD 33.12 million in 2022 and is anticipated to witness an impressive growth in the forecast period with a CAGR of 5.12% through 2028. This can be due to collaborations and partnerships among leading companies with a diverse approach to merge the expertise of individual companies and to strengthen their position.

The growing aging population is a significant driver of the demand for Nuclear Imaging Equipment. Aging is often associated with the development of chronic diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and cardiovascular disorders. Nuclear imaging enables early detection, precise diagnosis, and effective management of these chronic conditions, leading to a higher demand for such diagnostic technologies. The aging population is more prone to cardiovascular diseases, and nuclear imaging, particularly techniques like myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), is valuable for assessing cardiac health. The demand for cardiovascular imaging increases as the population ages.

Nuclear imaging, such as positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), is crucial for the early detection and monitoring of neurological disorders prevalent in older individuals, including Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. The risk of cancer increases with age, and nuclear imaging is widely used for cancer screening, staging, and treatment monitoring. As the aging population grows, there is a higher demand for nuclear imaging equipment to support comprehensive cancer care.

In February 2023, United Imaging, a global leader in cutting-edge medical imaging and radiotherapy equipment, participated as a Platinum partner in Arab Health 2023. At this annual event, a significant collaboration was solidified between United Imaging and I-ONE Nuclear Medicine & Oncology Center through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This agreement marks the inception of a partnership aimed at advancing research on the first PET/MR uPMR 790 in the Gulf countries. I-ONE Nuclear Medicine & Oncology Center, recognized as the inaugural research facility of its kind in the western region of Saudi Arabia, will collaborate with United Imaging to establish a research academy focused on advanced PET/MR imaging, with a special emphasis on neuro and cardiac PET. The collaborative efforts of the two entities will delve into exploring clinical applications and educational initiatives related to the benefits of AI, digital PET/MR, low-dose PET imaging, early detection of small lesions, and the utilization of new tracers.

The limited availability of a skilled workforce is a significant challenge in the UAE Nuclear Imaging Equipment Market. Operating and maintaining nuclear imaging equipment, such as PET scanners and gamma cameras, requires specialized training due to the complexity of the technology and the handling of radioactive materials. The limited availability of training programs and resources for nuclear medicine technologists can result in a scarcity of skilled professionals. Nuclear imaging technologies continue to advance, incorporating new features, software, and imaging techniques. Ensuring that the workforce is trained to operate and make optimal use of these advanced technologies can be challenging due to the need for continuous education and skill development. The availability of educational programs and courses specific to nuclear medicine technology may be limited in the region. This scarcity can hinder the development of a pool of qualified professionals and impede the growth of the workforce in the nuclear imaging field.

UAE Nuclear Imaging Equipment Market is segmented based on Type, Application, End User, and by region. 

Based on the Application, UAE Nuclear Imaging Equipment Market is segmented into Oncology, Cardiology, Neurology, Others. Cardiology in nuclear imaging involves the use of specialized nuclear imaging equipment to assess the structure and function of the heart. This branch of nuclear medicine plays a crucial role in diagnosing and managing various cardiac conditions. The two primary nuclear imaging modalities used in cardiology are Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET). Nuclear imaging provides functional information about the heart, offering insights beyond structural imaging modalities like echocardiography or coronary angiography. Cardiac nuclear imaging can detect abnormalities in blood flow and myocardial perfusion before structural changes occur, allowing for early intervention. Combining perfusion, function, and viability studies provides a comprehensive assessment of cardiac health, aiding in treatment decisions.
