2. Development status of the industry

Magnetic resonance imaging system is a biomagnetic nuclear spin imaging technology that has gradually emerged with the development of computer technology, electronic circuit technology, and superconductor technology. It uses magnetic resonance phenomena to obtain electromagnetic signals from the human body and reconstruct the human body. A medical imaging method of information image.

Since the 1980s, magnetic resonance imaging technology has been developed at an extremely fast speed, which has greatly promoted the rapid development of medicine, neurophysiology and cognitive neuroscience. Compared with foreign countries, my country's medical magnetic resonance imaging system industry started relatively late. In 1982, the former State Science and Technology Commission began to organize research projects on the development of magnetic resonance imaging technology, opening a new chapter in the development of China's magnetic resonance imaging industry. In the past 10 years, my country's magnetic resonance imaging technology has developed rapidly. In 2011, my country's first superconducting magnetic resonance (1.5T) imaging system with independent intellectual property rights was born. The brand has obtained the CFDA registration certificate for the 3.0T superconducting magnetic resonance imaging system. In addition, the Superscan 3TMRI product launched by Xingaoyi has started the NMPA registration application process, and domestic high-end magnetic resonance imaging products have begun to emerge.

In recent years, my country's economy has grown rapidly, and residents' spending power has continued to increase. According to statistics from the Bureau of Statistics, in 2021, the per capita disposable income and per capita consumption expenditure of Chinese residents will reach 35,100 yuan and 24,100 yuan, respectively. At the same time, the willingness of Chinese residents to spend on health care has increased. From 2015 to 2021, my country's per capita health care expenditure will increase from 1165 yuan to 2115 yuan. The improvement of residents' payment ability and willingness to pay has played a good role in promoting the growth of the magnetic resonance imaging system market.

According to the statistics of the China Medical Equipment Association, the domestic MRI system market will maintain rapid growth from 2017 to 2021, with a compound annual growth rate of 5.93%.

With the continuous improvement of the technical level of domestic MRI brand products and the continuous optimization and upgrading of comprehensive performance, under the background of national policies strongly supporting import substitution, it is expected that the market share of domestic MRI systems will continue to increase in the future, and the development prospects are good.

3. Industry supply and demand market conditions

1. Supply situation

Compared with the world, my country's magnetic resonance imaging system industry has always presented a situation of low industry concentration, small enterprise scale, and low market share of domestic products in the mid-to-high-end market. In recent years, with the improvement of the overall research and development level of domestic medical equipment, the core technology of products has been gradually overcome, and product quality and reputation have risen. Some domestic companies have achieved cornering overtaking through technological innovation. The pattern of import monopoly is changing. The system industry is gradually realizing the goal of running shoulder to shoulder with international brands.

However, at present, the upstream core components and some high-end parts of the MRI system are still mainly supplied by imports. Taking high-purity liquid helium as an example, MR above 1.5T uses a low-temperature superconducting magnet, which needs to be immersed in 1500-2000l of liquid helium to ensure that the magnet is in a stable superconducting state. However, domestic helium resource reserves are relatively scarce and mainly rely on imports. Due to the increasing trend of global liquid helium prices, the purchase price of liquid helium has risen at the same time. As local magnetic resonance imaging system companies expand new liquid helium purchase channels, their bargaining power has been improved. Come purchase price drops.

There is a lot of room for domestic substitution. At present, the domestic medical magnetic resonance in my country is mainly 1.5T. From a global perspective, the market has been monopolized by the three giants Siemens, GE, and Philips for a long time. For the domestic 1.5T market, these three giants account for more than half of the market share, but domestic medical device manufacturers such as United Imaging and Neusoft cannot Underestimated, the growth rate is fast, and the current market sales of United Imaging have surpassed that of Philips. In terms of 3.0T magnetic resonance, the domestic manufacturer United Imaging has also entered the market, competing with imported manufacturers. The future is worth looking forward to.

2. Demand situation

With the rapid development of my country's economy, the aggravation of population aging, and the improvement of people's health awareness, the demand for medical care services continues to increase, and the demand for high-quality magnetic resonance imaging systems in the domestic market is correspondingly growing rapidly. At the same time, since the medical reform in 2012, the relevant state departments have successively issued a series of related policies for the medical industry, aiming at optimizing the level of medical services, encouraging the implementation of hierarchical diagnosis and treatment, and promoting the sinking of medical resources, which has opened up new opportunities for the sales of MRI systems. market space. Driven by the two-wheel drive of market demand and policy dividends, in 2021, the sales volume of magnetic resonance imaging systems in China will reach 1905 units.

At present, the penetration rate of magnetic resonance imaging equipment in hospitals in China is still low. With the continuous development of magnetic resonance imaging systems, it has significant advantages in the functional diagnosis of major diseases, bringing about continuous increase in clinical demand. At the same time, with the continuous implementation of national hierarchical diagnosis and treatment, it will break the traditional pattern of large-scale medical institutions dominating the medical imaging diagnosis market, improve the imaging equipment configuration level and diagnosis and treatment capabilities of grassroots medical institutions, and gradually realize the penetration rate of magnetic resonance imaging systems in the grassroots market continuous improvement.

As the demand for magnetic resonance imaging systems in my country continues to grow, the shortage of medical personnel is difficult to alleviate in the short term. Modular, intelligent, and low-cost magnetic resonance imaging systems conform to the national policy of hierarchical diagnosis and treatment, and will become a future development trend.
