Digital 2D X-Ray Equipment Market to be Worth US$16.9 billion by 2021, Driven by High Demand for Procedures with Low Radiation Dose

Article Description

Portability of medical devices has surfaced as a crucial concern in recent times. Therefore, modern-day manufacturers have mastered the art of customizing
products into a hand-in-glove fit for the precise need of end users. Recent reports compiled to study the market viability of x-ray equipment indicate that
innovations and technological advances, coupled with increased government expenditure on research and development activities in the field and rising global
geriatric population, are the major factors boosting the growth of the global 2D x-ray equipment market. Other factors such as surging
incidence of chronic ailments and intensifying competition among leading vendors to capture the bigger market share are also significantly propelling the
market for 2D x-ray.

The 2D X-Ray equipment market is very cost-effective and results in about 400X less dosage than CT scans, which is a key driving factor of the global 2D
x-ray equipment market.

Low Radiation Dosage in 2D X-Ray Process to Drive Demand

Hospital budgets are not always the most luxurious and often, the administration has to suffice with outdated technology due to constrained resources.
Hence, it is very obvious that they would prefer the workflow improvement offered by modern 2D x-ray devices. Taking into consideration the efficacy that
these equipments offer and the low radiation dose to the patient, 2D x-ray devices have emerged as the most preferred choice among hospitals and healthcare
centers. In addition, the bolstered investment in imaging equipment is also working in favor of the global 2D X-Ray equipment market.

Global 2D X-Ray Equipment Market to Reach US$16.9 Billion by 2021

According to a recently published report, the 2D X-Ray market, which stood at around US$5 billion in 2014, is expected to reach a total value of US$16.9
billion by the end of 2021. Factors such as the increasing geriatric population, which in turn results in high demand for therapeutic and diagnostic
equipment, and increased healthcare expenditure in developing countries such as India and China are likely to boost the global 2D X-ray equipment market.

Pathology and point of care diagnostics practices nowadays offer more insight into a patient’s condition. The changing needs of society have also
significantly influenced the market for diagnostic imaging and informatics. Improvements brought about in diagnostic procedures by the advent of this new
school of x-ray technology is likely to positively impact the global healthcare industry in terms of both quality and cost.

Market to be Driven by High Patient Awareness

An increasing number of hospitals and healthcare centers worldwide are investing in 2D x-ray equipment to enhance their competitiveness in the market. In
addition, patients around the world have become more informed pertaining to the risks associated with radiation doses. Hence, they strongly demand
diagnosis procedure with the lowest dosages of radiation. This has prompted clinicians, healthcare providers, and hospitals across the globe to use the new
2D x-ray equipment.

Some of the leading companies operating in the global 2D X-ray market are GE Healthcare Shimadzu, AGFA Toshiba Medical Systems, Hologic Onex / Carestream
Health, Philips Healthcare Siemens, China Resources Hitachi Medical, Varian Canon, FujiMedical systems.
