Hi Gurvinder, 

Greetings from Syncfusion. 

While exporting the PDF page to image using PdfViewerControl the stream position will seek to the end , so we need to set stream position to 0 to read the image from stream properly to display it in the Xamarin.Forms views. Please find the code changes to below to get the reported issue resolved. 

Please find the below code snippet 
private async void SetImage() 
        { 
            byte[] bytes = new WebClient().DownloadData("http://www.africau.edu/images/default/sample.pdf"); 
            var pdfViewerControl = new SfPdfViewer(); 
            pdfViewerControl.LoadDocument(new MemoryStream(bytes)); 
            Stream stream = pdfViewerControl.ExportAsImage(0, 2.0f); 
            var list = pdfViewerControl.ExportAsImage(0, 1); 
            stream.Position = 0; 
            MyImage.Source = ImageSource.FromStream(() => stream); 
        } 

Please find the sample from the below link, 

Regards,
Sathish
