Brazil Diagnostic Imaging Market size is expected to reach USD million by 2029, with growth at a CAGR of 5.75% during the forecast period (2022-2029).

Diagnostic imaging is a medical technique of non-invasive imaging tests for diagnosing and monitoring diseases or injuries by getting visual images of internal structures and organs of the patient's body. Diagnostic imaging technologies are used extensively by doctors to examine and diagnose the exact medical conditions of patients. In Brazil, cancer is the second most common cause of death, after cardiac and cerebrovascular diseases. Oncology accounts for more than 30% of the market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.91% throughout the forecast. According to WHO, in 2014, there were approximately 395,000 new cancer cases in Brazil, 205,000 in men, and 190,000 in women. The most incident types of cancer are prostate, lung, colon, and rectum, to diagnose these cancers, various diagnostic imaging tests are carried out in laboratories or hospitals.

Diagnostic imaging helps identify cardiac abnormalities, broken bones, aneurysms, gastrointestinal issues, and various types of cancer. Diagnostic imaging is also used to monitor how the patient’s body responds to the treatment being given. Diagnostic imaging diagnoses disease in its early stage, and greatly improves patient survival outcomes. It is a painless technique and offers a rapid diagnosis. The medical imaging industry has been revolutionized from bedside monitoring to high-end digital scanning.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in Brazil, around 72% of all deaths every year are due to chronic diseases. According to a study published in The Lancet, Brazil is burdened with chronic non-communicable diseases, neuropsychiatric disorders are the single largest contributor to the chronic disease burden in Brazil, with an estimated 10 to 20% of people having had depression at some stage.

Brazil Diagnostic Imaging Market Growth Drivers

The major drivers fueling the growth of the Brazil Diagnostic Imaging Market are the growing geriatric population, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, technological advancement, and an increase in funds and grants by government bodies.

There is a dramatic rise in the elderly population in Brazil, according to WHO, in 1920, life expectancy was only 35.2 years in Brazil, and the elderly accounted for just 4% of the total population of the country. In 2016, about 8.25 percent of Brazil's total population was aged 65 or more than that.

Health care in Brazil is funded by the Brazilian Government. The Ministry of Health (Ministério da Saúde) is responsible for public health services, government hospitals, and medical services. Around 70% of Brazilian residents use public hospitals, while the rest opt for private hospital visits, which they either pay for themselves or which are covered by private medical insurance. In 2009, the Union, states, and municipalities allocated around $ 39 billion to SUS (Brazil’s publicly funded healthcare system), while the private network contributed approximately $ 45 billion.
