The global 4K medical imaging market was USD 840.2 million in 2020 and is anticipated to reach 2,146.7 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 11.9% during the forecast period 2021-2027. 4K is an input source, display panel, or projector that has a resolution almost four times more than that of high-definition video. The 4K technology in the healthcare field makes it easy to access images with the highest possible resolution, resulting in making precise decisions for better treatment. The global 4K medical imaging market is beholding tremendous growth owing to the increasing investment for the development of healthcare infrastructure, growing evidence for effective and good results in treatment, and for assistance in diagnosis. Moreover, the increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures, usage of hybrid operating rooms, increasing demand for advanced modalities, and enhancing reimbursement framework in emerging economies will propel the growth of the 4K medical imaging market.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to economic turmoil, various countries are working towards game-changing improvements to protect their employees and clients. The COVID-19 has negatively affected the global 4K medical imaging market owing to disruption in the supply of imaging devices, demand for medical imaging like MRI has also gone down resulting in the reduction in the slowdown in the business for the 4K medical imaging market.
Insight by Product Type
Based on product type, the global 4K medical imaging market is divided into 4K medical displays, 4K camera systems, and 4K Advanced Visualization Systems (Microscopic Systems). The 4K medical displays are growing significantly and are having the largest share in the 4K medical imaging market owing to the fast adoption of hybrid operating rooms as it provides various advantages such as time and cost-effectiveness, integrating different facilities.
