Global Digital Radiography Market- Competitive Landscape
Key players operating in the global digital radiography market include GE Healthcare, North Star Imaging, Fujifilm Holdings, Fresenius Se & Co. KGaA, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Shimadzu Corporation, Toshiba Medical System Corporation, Carestream Health, 3DX-Ray, Canon, Inc., and Bosello High Technology
Digital radiography is a similar technique to conventional radiography, with the only difference being the former using a phosphor image plate instead of a conventional film. Currently, based on various detector and readout technologies, the medical devices and equipment manufacturers offer a variety of digital imaging solutions to their customers. There are various factors positively affecting demand for digital radiography such as digital detectors archiving of a fully digital picture and communication system, where images are stored digitally and can be shared without any risk of file loss during image distribution in hospitals through web-based technology. This in turn is expected to favor the digital radiography market over the forecast period.
Furthermore, healthcare industry is projected to grow at a significant rate on the backdrop of the rise in healthcare expenditure, especially in emerging nations, with the setting up of various new hospitals and diagnostic centers in countries such as India and China. Also, the market is witnessing a steady shift from analog to digital modes of imaging, owing to the better and fast imaging results of the imaging services.
Increasing use of digital radiography devices for diagnosing and treating various disease such as cancer, cardiovascular.
