[47 Pages Report] The North American medical radiation protection aprons market is projected to reach USD 49 million by 2024 from USD 36 million in 2019, at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period. Growth in this market is driven by the increasing safety awareness among people working in radiation-prone environments, growth in the number of trained radiologic technologists, growing number of orthopedic and spine surgeries, and the increasing prevalence of cancer. On the other hand, discomfort and pain due to the heavy weight of lead aprons is expected to hamper the growth of this market during the forecast period.
Based on type, the medical radiation protection aprons market is segmented into front protection aprons, vest and skirt aprons, and other aprons. In 2018, the front protection aprons segment accounted for the largest market share primarily due to the wide availability and high usage of these aprons in dental clinics and hospital settings.
On the basis of country, the North American medical radiation protection aprons market is segmented into the US and Canada. The US accounted for the largest share of the market in 2018 and is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. The increasing number of radiography procedures performed and healthcare professionals that use radiography equipment are the major factors supporting the growth of the medical radiation protection aprons market in the US.
Prominent players in the North American medical radiation protection aprons market are Infab Corporation (US), Bar·Ray Products (US), Burlington Medical LLC (US), Shielding International, Inc. (US), and AliMed, Inc. (US).
