Contrast Media/Contrast Agent Market

GE Healthcare (U.S.) and Bayer (Germany) are the Major Players in the Contrast Media/Contrast Agent Market

The global contrast media/contrast agents market is expected to reach USD 6.0 billion by 2024 from an estimated USD 5.0 billion in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period. Growth in the contrast media market can primarily be attributed to factors such as the increasing prevalence of cancer & CVD, regulatory approval of a growing number of contrast agents, and the rising volume of CT & MRI examinations. However, the side effects and allergic reactions associated with contrast agents are expected to limit market growth to a certain extent.

The major players in the global contrast media market are GE Healthcare (US), Bayer (Germany), Bracco Imaging S.p.A (Italy). An analysis of the market developments between 2016 and 2019 revealed that product launches, partnerships, expansions, and strategic acquisitions were adopted by market players to strengthen their product portfolios and maintain a competitive position in the contrast media industry.
