Market Report Description

The Global X-Ray Systems Market size is expected to reach $11.1 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 5.2% CAGR during the forecast period. In order to generate 2-D X-ray images of the 3-D internal body organs or bones, an X-ray device is used. X-Ray Systems are generally of two types viz. stationary or portable. In emerging economies, Stationary radiography systems witnessed massive demand where the adoption of advanced technology is a bit low. Portable systems have high mobility & their utilization is convenient and flexible. As a result, they are preferred more in comparison to their stationary variants. The growth of the market is expected to gain momentum due to the increasing number of chronic diseases. Moreover, the market growth is anticipated to augment by the increasing demand for early diagnosis & detection of disease.

Cost-effectiveness and easy & high availability are some of the primary benefits of digital imaging. Using the technology, the hospitals become capable of reducing the price by cutting down the film price, decreasing the need for storage space, and reducing the number of people needed to run the services & archive sections. Images from X-Ray Systems are immediately available for distribution to the clinical services without the time and physical effort required to retrieve film packets, and reviewing early images on a patient is much simpler. The X-ray devices market is expected to grow considerably due to this factor.

X-Ray Systems Market Size

The image of the required part of the body can be captured by the X-ray system which emits some amounts of X-rays in the human body. As X-ray offers an instant image of the injury & the increasing number of road accidents is expected to augment the market demand. Advent & popularity of age-associated diseases such as osteoporosis and the identification of bone degeneration because of the aging process and the increasing global geriatric population is expected to propel the development of the market in the upcoming years.

Mobility Outlook

Based on Mobility, the market is segmented into Stationary Systems and Mobile. Stationary systems procured the highest revenue share in 2019. Stationary radiography solutions have exhibited considerable demand in emerging countries where the deployment of advanced technologies is relatively slow.

Modality Outlook

Based on Modality, the market is segmented into Radiography, Computed Radiography and Fluoroscopy. Computed radiography systems offer sharp images in a very short time and the imaging plates can be reused, that leads to their high preference. Fluoroscopy is increasingly gaining traction in developed countries in North America & Europe and this segment is expected to witness prominent growth in the next few years. Radiography acquired the maximum market size in 2019. The deployment of computed radiography is increasing in emerging economies as it aids in reducing the costs of medical imaging.

X-Ray Systems Market Share

End-user Outlook

Based on End-use, the market is segmented into Hospitals, Diagnostic Centers, and Mobile Imaging Centers. Hospitals obtained the maximum revenue share in 2019. As medical imaging can be a primary source of outpatient profits, mid-to-large sized hospitals deploy medical imaging equipment within the premises. Various large hospitals have their own medical imaging facilities. Although, there is a high requirement of massive investments, space, expert professionals, & can cause high maintenance charges in these facilities. This expands the economic burden on hospitals.

Type Outlook

Based on Type, the market is segmented into Analog and Digital. The digital segment dominated the X-Ray Systems market and is expected to maintain a similar trend during the forecast period. Due to the benefits like superior image quality & clarity, cost-efficiency, and low-maintenance cost, digital radiology devices are preferred over conventional ones.
