    Market Insights

    The use of imaging chemicals in the medical industry for diagnostic imaging purposes is becoming increasingly prevalent. This is primarily due to the rising demand for digital radiography, which has led to a strong increase in the consumption of imaging chemicals and materials. One of the factors driving this demand is the widespread adoption of mobile digital X-ray systems, particularly for applications such as dental, chest, and orthopedic imaging. The Imaging Chemicals market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% by 2028, owing to the increasing usage of radiography for dental, chest, and orthopedic applications.

    In recent years, there has been a significant focus on developing healthcare facilities in the Asia-Pacific region to cater to the growing population and healthcare needs. Governments in countries like India and China have made substantial investments in their medical industries. For instance, India has introduced the Ayushman Bharat program, aimed at enhancing healthcare infrastructure and accessibility.

    Chemical imaging plays a crucial role in evaluating the identity, quality, and quantity of various components in different substances and forms. It is particularly valuable for analyzing active ingredients, intermediates, and excipients in bulk or solid dosage forms, biological samples, packaging materials, and devices. Employing chemical imaging techniques makes it possible to gain detailed insights into the composition and characteristics of different substances.
