Digital X-Ray Market by Types (Computational Radiography, Digital Radiography), Major Products (Flat Panel Detectors, CMOS, CCD, Software, X-ray Contrast Media) & by Applications (Chest Imaging, Mammography, Dental) - Forecast to 2018
Publishing Date: May 2013
Report Code: MD 2029
Analog X-ray systems, which had major share in the market until 2005, are being replaced by advanced technologies such as computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR). Advantages such as low dosage, better image quality, enhanced image storage, and immediate image analysis have made the latter more attractive over conventional analog systems. The availability of image detectors technologies like CCD, CMOS and flat panel detectors are being used to retrofit and convert the old existing analog X-ray units into CR and DR systems; this is driving the up-gradation of analog systems into digital.
Hospital and diagnostic centers are continuously adapting to the change in technology to provide better services for their patients. Concerns over excess radiation exposure, poor image quality, time required, and requirement of large space has forced many to adopt and upgrade into digital X-ray systems. Advancement and adoption of digital image processing software and picture archiving and communication system (PACS) has enhanced the ability of technicians in providing accurate diagnosis and better service to their patients.
The market is driven by technological advances in automation, growing aging population, and need for improved and faster imaging methods for higher patient throughput. The growing incidences of chronic disease like tuberculosis, pneumonia and other gastrointestinal disorders are propelling the market in both developed and developing countries. High costs and ionizing radiations are the main factors that restrain the growth of this market, while intense competition and the economic downturn are key challenges.
The global market is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 4.5% from 2013 to 2018. Among digital systems, digital radiography is the fastest growing at a CAGR of 5.43%. Mammography, fluoroscopy and other imaging applications like musculoskeletal, whole body imaging and neonatal imaging methods are fast-growing application markets. In the product category, complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) and flat panel image sensor markets are expected to experience high growth, owing to their distinct technical advantages over charge-coupled devices and film-based sensors.
Demographically, the markets in North America and Europe are expected to remain dominant in terms of market share, while Asia is poised to experience rapid growth. Untapped markets in Asia are expected to offer new growth opportunities in the forecast period. Increased expenditure on healthcare infrastructure is boosting the healthcare market in China. With dense population, the growing number of aging people, and increased adoption of digital X-ray systems, China is expected to supersede other Asian markets.

Radiography is the largest segment in the $15 billion medical imaging market with products in technology categories such as analogs, computed radiography, digital radiography, C-arm and fluoroscopy. It is the most common and basic medical imaging technique used in medical diagnosis.The market is broadly segmented into types, major product segments, and applications. Digital X-ray types are further classified as computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR), while major product segments are segmented into three types, namely, detectors, software and digital X-ray contrast media. Detectors are further segmented into flat panel detectors, charge coupled devices (CCD), and complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS). Applications are classified as chest imaging, mammography, dental,- fluoroscopy, and others (musculoskeletal, whole body, and neonatal imaging).
Computed radiography accounts for more than 70% market share in the market. Cost is a major advantage in the growth of the segment. Digital radiography costs more than computed radiography and has few advantages over the latter. Adoption of digital radiography in North America and Europe is very high, resulting in high market share in these regions.
The global market has been estimated at $3.8 billion in 2013, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.51% from 2013 to 2018. Digital radiography, the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of 5.43%, is expected to grow rapidly and supersede computed radiography (CR) over the next decade. Developing countries play a vital role in the growth of the digital X-ray market, as the market in developed nations has reached a saturation point. Asia, which accounts for two-third of the worlds population, has potential to overtake North America and Europe as the major market over the next decade. Adoption of new technology in these regions is on the rise, as consumers are more aware about current trends and technology advancements.
Europe has a high adoption of digital X-ray systems; it accounts for 28% market share of the global. Countries like Germany, The Netherlands, U.K. and France has more than 70% adoption of digital X- ray systems, the region is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.09%. Due to weak economic conditions, healthcare budgets have been reduced, forcing several hospitals and health institutions to postpone upgradation of old X-ray units to digital. In the RoW market, Australia, Brazil, Russia and countries in the Middle East are major markets, estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.45%; it is the fastest growing market after Asia.
