Currently the main competition faced by company is from three large competitors namely General Electric, Siemens and Phillips Healthcare. Over the past five years, the PET Scanner Manufacturing industry has experienced growth, thanks to a rise in PET utilization among the industry's downstream markets. In particular, PET scanner utilization among oncologists has been high, because PET scanners can be used to diagnose and determine the stages of many types of cancer. During the five years to 2019, industry revenue is forecast to grow at an annualized rate of 5.9% to $8.8 billion. In particular, as PET scanner manufacturers focus on improving the quality and quantity of information that can be gathered in a single scan, healthcare providers will be able to provide more streamlined care, stimulating demand for industry products. Market share concentration in the industry is high as IBIS World estimates that the top three industry players, GE, Siemens and Philips, hold a combined market share of 84.3% of total industry revenue in 2014. PET scanner manufacturers incur significant costs related to purchasing gamma cameras and input commodities, such as chemical elements like lutetium oxyortho silicate. As a result, many of these companies are multinational conglomerates, which produce these items in house. The use of radiopharmaceuticals is also essential to PET scanning procedures and a majority of industry operators also produce these drugs purposed for molecular imaging Industry Statistics and Market Size:

Company Background: The idea to setup a company like mediequip came into my mind due to entrepreneurial nature of mine and me following “freewheeling opportunism” style. The company’s idea was triggered mainly by my nature and passion towards healthcare and Medical field, and the reason was supported by one of major manufacturers of PET scanners ceasing manufacturing of these machines thus leaving a huge gap in market. Company started trading on 30 June 2014 and successfully completed its half year of trading under the supervision of a professional team lead by “M.D name”. Loss for the first six month is $150,000 and company expects to cover this by achieving economies of scale up to the year end
