X-Ray Detectors Market: Recent Development
Recent trends in the X-Ray detectors market such as price reduction of detectors, integration of detector platforms, increasing demand of flat panel detectors, affordability of portable x-ray detectors among others is expected to drive the market in the forecast period 2017 to 2024.
There has been a significant dip in the prices of x-ray detectors in the last five years, approximately a 25% price reduction is observed. This is owing to the market unawareness of technology and acceptance of computed radiology detectors due to less price and excellent functionalities. This has created an immense competition in the flat panel detectors market, to cater to the challenges price reductions were done to promote digital x-ray technologies in the market. Also, the hospitals reimbursement shifting to value based has led to budget reductions leading to a slow acceptance of digital detectors in the market.
However, in recent year’s digitalization of x-ray detectors technology has increased, and is expected to increase significantly in the forecast period bringing advanced digital x-ray detectors to mobile locations, and shifting analog to digital real time imaging will boost the market potential in present times.
Currently the x-ray detectors advancements are concentrated in the hospitals segment and the non-hospital segment still using computed radiography detectors. Soon the price reductions and the integration needs will lead the digitalization and shift from computed radiography detectors to flat panel detectors.
X-ray detector application in mostly used in medical field. For instance, it is used to deliver projection or volumetric data in radiography, computed tomography (CT), angiography, surgery or mammography. X-ray detector is used to check disorder such as arthritis, orthopedics & cardiovascular diseases, breast cancer and many other diseases. Such diseases are mostly occurring in aged people. In 2015, 617 million people are aged 65 or over. According to MedicineNet, Inc.,around 350 million people in the world suffer with arthritis. Approximately 40 millionpeople in the U.S. suffer with arthritis which includes one quarter of the children. Also, according to American Heart association, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally, which accounts for 17.3 million deaths per year and this number is expected to grow to more than 23.6 million by 2030.
On the other hand, high initial cost of digital x-ray systems, lackof skilled professionals, acceptance of computed radiology detectors due to low price, slow acceptance of digital detectors, stringent regulatory procedures for product approvalsandU.S. Government’s Excise Tax on medical devices are some of the factors which may hinder the growth of x-ray detector market.
X-Ray Detectors Market Categories: Segmentation
The global X-ray detectors market is segmented based on product type, portability, application end-user and geography.
Flat panel detectors dominate the market with ~70.0% market share in 2016 and are expected to reach USD 2.7 billion by 2024, growing at highest CAGR of 6.8%. The market for CRD is expected to decline further with more and more healthcare providers moving towards digitalization.
CRD is used extensively in veterinary application, used to very less extent in human use, not used in security and industrial x-ray applications. Line scan detectors maximum usage is in security, industrial and dental applications, also in orthopedic x-ray the line scan detectors are used extensively in spine and other trauma related diagnostics.
CCD is an obsolete technology and not used very often in medical science however developing countries are still using it for radiography. The prices for FPD detectors have decreased recently and the prices are now stable at USD 20,000 to USD 35,000 varying from country to country.
The x-ray detectors market is also segmented based on portability into fixed detectors, and mobile detectors. In the forecast period of 2017 to 2024 the mobile detectors segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, owing to its increased demand in emergency units and ICU’s.
Also, based on technology the market is segmented into direct and indirect FPD, in 2016 indirect FPD dominate the market with ~92.0% market share. The indirect FPD is further segmented into cesium iodide (CsI) indirect FPD and gadolinium oxysulfide indirect FPD.
In 2016, medical imaging is expected to lead in the application of x-ray detectors with around ~70.0% market share. The medical imaging application is further sub segmented into static imaging (general radiography and mammography) and dynamic imaging (general fluoroscopy, surgical imaging, and cardiovascular imaging).
The hospitals segment is expected to hold the major share of this market in 2017, owing majority of radiography imaging being done in hospitals and digitalization of x-ray technology majorly concentrated in hospitals.
X-Ray Detectors Market: Geographic Segmentation
In 2017, North America is expected to dominate the X-ray detector market with ~42.0% of the market share followed by Europe and APAC. However the APAC region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the forecast period 2017 to 2024.The market in Asia is poised to witness the highest growth, attributed to factors such as rising disposable income, government initiatives to encourage advanced medical care, improving healthcare infrastructure and diagnostic radiology centers, and growing medical tourism in the region.
