Global X-Ray Market Exceeds 3 Billion Dollars: Kalorama

The world market for x-ray systems will grow from 3.6 billion to 4.23 billion in 2018, according to Kalorama Information.

 
PRLog - Mar. 12, 2014 - NEW YORK -- The world market for x-ray systems will grow from 3.6 billion to 4.23 billion in 2018, according to Kalorama Information.  The healthcare market research publisher said that several trends including technology, a desire for healthcare cost control and the aging population are driving this market.  The finding was made in Kalorama's complete survey of the imaging market, Medical Imaging Markets (X-Ray, CT, MRI, Ultrasound, PET, SPECT, Others)

"There are a number of issues that are motivating the need for medical imaging systems," said Joe Constance, author of the report.  "But a key driver is the aging population.  Today, one out of every eight Americans is considered old representing nearly 13% of the US population."

An aging population means more surgeries, chronic conditions and injuries requiring imaging for diagnosis, the report says.  By region, the report says that x-ray markets in North America and Europe will continue to be dominant in terms of market share. But there will be growth opportunities in the BRIC nations. In addition, under-tapped Asian markets will offer new opportunities as well for market growth. Worldwide, growth can be attributed to a rise in aging populations, but specifically in developing countries, growth is attributable to improving health care infrastructures, and an increased demand for systems as regions become developed with new technology. In China, a significant driver of market growth is the country's drive for health care reform, which seeks to develop more market incentives for advances in health care technology, set in a backdrop of greater public-sector spending on hospitals, and the growth of private health care institutions.

Constance described Europe as a potential trouble area for manufacturers.

"While there always is a market for replacement systems, the European economic slowdown has made it difficult for hospitals to but new imaging systems," Constance said.  "With their budgets cut but with an increasing number of procedures, health care institutions must spend less on new modalities and instead focus on purchasing refurbished imaging systems."
