Overview of Global Bone Densitometers Market
The growing prevalence of osteoporosis, coupled with awareness about diagnosis of the disease through increased screening initiatives, has propelled the global bone densitometers market. Osteoporosis and other bone-related diseases are common among the geriatric population. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, around 1.5 billion people around the world would be aged 65 or above by 2050. The increase in life expectancy and growing geriatric population has further boosted the global bone densitometers market.
However, the report points out that the narrowing of insurance coverage for bone density tests will restrict the overall market. Adoption of refurbished devices owing to challenging economic conditions will also hamper the market during the forecast horizon. The report states that the advent of bone densitometers in oncology and demand from emerging economies such as Brazil, Japan, China, and India will create a huge opportunity for the global bone densitometers market.
On the basis of technology, the report segments the global bone densitometers market into peripheral bone densitometry and axial bone densitometry. Peripheral bone densitometry has been further sub-segmented into single energy X-ray absorptiometry (SEXA), dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (pDEXA), quantitative ultrasound (QUS), radiographic absorptiometry (RA), and peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT).
Axial bone densitometry has been sub-segmented into dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) and quantitative computed tomography (QCT). The report points out that the demand for axial DEXA was the highest of all segments in 2012. During the forecast horizon, the peripheral QCT bone densitometers segment is expected to grow significantly.
The report studies the bone densitometers market in four key regions: Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World. In 2012, North America dominated the overall market.
