Market Definition

The global Teleradiology Market size was valued at USD 5.54 billion in 2022 and is predicted to reach USD 19.15 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 16.7% from 2023-2030. Teleradiology is a branch of telemedicine that is defined as the practice of transmitting radiological images, such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, from one location to another in order to facilitate the sharing of research among radiologists, physicians, and patients. This becomes crucial when the expertise of a sub-specialist, such as an MRI radiologist, neuroradiologist, pediatric radiologist, or musculoskeletal radiologist, is required to provide coverage for emergency radiology services during their off-hours.

Teleradiology makes it possible for qualified specialists to be accessible around the clock. It utilizes the internet and other standard network technologies, such as telephone lines or local area networks (LANs), to connect users. Specialized software is employed to transmit these radiological images, and advanced graphics processing enables radiologists to effectively analyze the data.

Market Dynamics and Trends

Increasing demand for teleradiology services across the globe owing to the high prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), cancer and orthopedic injuries that requires radiology procedures for its diagnosis is driving the growth of the market. For instance, in 2022, according to World health organization (WHO), around 17 million people died from cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) across the world. 

Also, increase in government expenditure on healthcare IT sector to digitalize patient data as it can increase efficiency and reduce errors is further driving the growth of the market. For instance, in November 2020, Department of Health and Humans Services (HHS) of United States has published a federal health IT Strategic Plan to improve the delivery and experience of patient care in the country. 

However, low availability of required network facilities for teleradiology in emerging countries and shortage of skilled radiologists restrain the growth of the market. On the contrary technological advancements such as cloud computing, additive manufacturing and artificial intelligence (AI) in teleradiology is expected to create ample growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.

Geographic breakdown and analysis of each of the aforesaid segments includes regions comprising of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW.


Geographical Analysis

North America holds the major share of teleradiology market and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to factors such as well-established health care infrastructure in the region along with high health care expenditure by government that increases the adaption of advanced teleradiology equipment by public health care providers in the region. For instance, in 2021, United States had spent 4.2 trillion US dollar in health sector, which is the highest in healthcare spending among the developed nations of the world. 

Moreover, presence of major key players such as GE Healthcare, Mednax and Cerner Corporation boosts the market growth in this region. For instance, in August 2021, GE Healthcare launched next-generation cloud-based picture archive and communication system (PACS) called Edison True PACS. This cloud-based system will enhance reading speed, reduce errors and improve diagnostic precision & efficiency by integrating artificial intelligence (AI).

On the other hand, Asia pacific is expected to show a steady rise in the teleradiology market due to the presence of huge geriatric population that are suffering from chronic disorders such as kidney failure and heart attacks that increases the adaption of teleradiology in this region. According to the American journal of kidney diseases

Also, increase in the number of patients suffering from Osteoarthritis that requires radiology for diagnosis and surgical intervention is further driving the teleradiology market growth in this region. For instance, as of 2019, according to the national library of medicine, total number of people suffering from osteoarthritis in India is around 62 million. 


Competitive Landscape

The teleradiology industry comprises of various market players such as Koninklijke Philips N.V., Agfa Healthcare, GE Healthcare, Medica Group Plc., Everlight Radiology, Radiology Partners, Cerner Corporation, Siemens Healthineers, Teleradiology Solutions and Fujifilm Holdings Corporation. 

These market players launching numerous products across various regions to maintain their dominance in the teleradiology market. For instance, in May 2023, Philips launched the Philips CT 3500, an AI-powered CT scanner designed to accelerate routine radiology and high-volume screening programs. The CT 3500 is a high-throughput CT system that automates time-consuming steps of radiographers and allowing them to spend more time focusing on the patient. The launch of the Philips CT 3500, will push the global market forward by streamlining image analysis, enhancing diagnostic accuracy, and scaling operations.

Moreover, in January 2021, Medica Group Plc announced a partnership with Sectra AB. Under this partnership program Sepctra will provide a new Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS) to replace Medicas existing PACS. It is expected to help hospitals with a wide range of emergency imaging reports and elective reports using Medicas NightHawk system. 

Furthermore, in December 2020 – Radiology Partners (RP) acquired the radiology division of MEDNAX, Inc. called MEDNAX Radiology Solutions for 885 million US dollar. This acquisition will help Radiology Partners to become the largest provider for comprehensive radiology and teleradiology services in the United States.
