In the post-recession scenario, development of high-end devices such as ultra high field MRI scanners and 64-slice CT scanners is expected to boost prospects in the respective markets. Rising incidence of chronic illnesses such as diabetes and asthma, and an aging global population continue to drive the demand for advanced technology-based medical devices. Technological advancements have also allowed medical equipment to be directly used by consumers. Continuous reforms in the healthcare sector are also expected to fuel growth in the medical market, as enhanced emphasis is placed on taking preventative and proactive healthcare measures for cutting costs. Consequently, the demand for miniaturized patient monitoring equipment with portability features is likely to increase. In the future, technologies capable of facilitating changes in clinical pathways, lowering healthcare expenditure, eliminating non-essential diagnostic procedures, and enhancing accuracy of diagnostic procedures are expected to gain popularity in the medical equipment market. Focus would also be on technologies that can reduce patients' exposure to radiation and limit the amount of contrast dosage to be administered.
