There are over 270 manufacturers of imaging equipment in the US healthcare market today. Finding the right supplier and the right products is critical to patient care, yet has historically been time consuming and difficult.

Featuring rich information and details on 1,700+ pieces of imaging equipment, the OpenMarkets Exchange is a great place to find new options when buying imaging equipment. With rapid changes in technology, it’s important to have a central source of information on what’s in the market.

Understanding and establishing your imaging equipment options is especially important in light of price increases due to the new tariffs on Chinese-made imaging and sterilization equipment. 

Let’s take a look at the competitive dynamics of four major categories of Imaging Equipment: 

Category # of Suppliers # of Products
X-Rays 30 150
CT Scanners 14 92
MRI 11 181
Dopplers 13 48

Competition for these categories of imaging equipment is fierce. Long sales cycles adds to the complexity for these technical products, as radiology, finance, IT and supply chain teams all must collaborate to find the right equipment at the right price. 

The OpenMarkets Exchange facilitates this collaboration, allowing multiple hospital users to work together online as they vet quotes and talk with suppliers. 

There’s quite a bit of competition in the ultrasound market as well. Based on insight from OpenMarkets & Signify Research, we have found that the ultrasound market consists of 57 manufacturers, 270 unique models, and accounts for $1.4 billion of the $30 billion spent on healthcare equipment overall. Further research suggests several financial, technological and population trends are driving opportunity in the ultrasound market, such as increasing expenditures and rising global birth rates.
