Global Portable X-Ray Devices Market: Regional Insights

Based on geography, the portable x-ray devices market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market over the forecast period due to the increasing prevalence of chronic disorders and growing geriatric population in this region. X-ray devices are widely used to detect various chronic disorders. A chest X-ray can diagnose various health conditions, and thus, there is an increasing demand for portable X-ray devices in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States.

Asia Pacific and Europe also expected to witness substantial growth in the global portable x-ray devices market owing to the rising geriatric population susceptible to chronic diseases. Asia and Europe are home to some of the world's oldest populations, those ages 65 and above, and geriatric population more vulnerable to chronic diseases. For instance, according to the Asian Development Bank (ADB), by 2050, one in four people in Asia and the Pacific will be over 60 years old. The population of older persons (aged over 60) in the region will triple between 2010 and 2050, reaching close to 1.3 billion people.
