The computed tomography (CT) systems market in the
Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate
(CAGR) of 15.7% from US$2.1bn in 2019 to US$7.7bn by 2028, according to
GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

revenue contributors within CT systems, with the market growing at a CAGR of
16.5% between 2019 and 2028, followed by 256-320 slice CT systems.

The advent of CT systems with higher imaging slices using a lower dose of
radiation will help physicians make more accurate clinical decisions while
increasing patient safety and will further drive the market forward.”
