Digital Mobile X-ray Devices Market – Insights

Digital mobile X-ray is a portable medical devices that is used for the visual representation of bone, ligaments, and other interior body parts. It is used in diagnosis of several diseases and conditions such as fractures, bone dislocation, ligament tear, arthritis, post-surgical complications, and surgical intervention.

The global digital mobile X-ray devices market is estimated to account for US$ 2,767.0 Mn in terms of value in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 4,787.0 Mn by the end of 2027.

Global Digital Mobile X-ray Devices Market: Drivers

High incidence of orthopedic diseases and bone injuries is expected to boost growth of the global digital mobile X-ray devices market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the study ‘Osteoarthritis in Europe: Impact on health status, work productivity and use of pharmacotherapies in five European countries’ that examined the impact of peripheral joint osteoarthritis across five European countries, UK (43.6%), France, (25.6%), Germany, (15.2%), Spain, (8.4%), and Italy (7.1%) recorded high prevalence of peripheral joint osteoarthritis, with majority of cases aging 55-74 years.

Moreover, increasing number of orthopedic procedures is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, according to American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, by 2030, primary total joint replacement is projected to increase by 171% and primary total knee replacement is projected to increase by up to 189%, for a projected 635,000 and 1.28 million procedures, respectively, in the U.S.

North America region held dominant position in the global digital mobile X-ray devices market in 2018, accounting for 31.8% share in terms of value, followed by Europe.

Global Digital Mobile X-ray Devices Market: Restraints

High expanses and stringent regulations associated with the clinical trials is expected to hinder growth of the global digital mobile X-ray devices market. In case of diagnostic imaging equipment, clinical trials ideally should be conducted one year prior to the product launch. However, due to the regulatory restrictions, it has become difficult for the manufacturers to conduct early stage trails and establish partnership with local players.

Moreover, inadequate imaging infrastructure in developing countries is also expected to hamper growth of the market. Currently, several developing nations lack adequate imaging infrastructure useful to conduct test and technology implementation compared to the U.S. and other developed nations. This can be attributed to low investment in diagnostic imaging in emerging economies. Moreover, high cost of initial set up and installation of advanced imaging equipment and broadband technology is also limiting their adoption in emerging economies.

Global Digital Mobile X-ray Devices Market: Opportunities 

Increasing geriatric population is expected to lead to high incidence of orthopedic diseases, thereby offering lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global digital mobile X-ray devices market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, geriatric population is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050, up from 900 million in 2015.

Operating digital mobile X-ray devices requires skilled professional. There is low availability of skilled professionals in emerging economies. This issue can be addressed by proper training for operating new imaging devices and computer programs.
