“Global X-ray detectors market projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6%”
The x-ray detectors market is expected to reach USD 3.31 billion by 2022 from USD 2.53 billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 5.6%. Growing public and private investments in digital imaging technologies, declining prices and benefits offered by digital detectors, and reimbursement cuts for analog X-ray are driving the growth of the x-ray detectors market. On the other hand, market growth may be limited to a certain extent due to the high cost of digital X-ray systems.
“Flat-panel detectors (FPDs) are expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.”
By type, the x-ray detectors market is segmented into flat-panel detectors (FPDs), computed radiography (CR) detectors, charge-coupled device (CCD) detectors, and line-scan detectors. The FPDs segment is expected to hold the largest share of the market in 2017 and is also projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Advantages of FPD-based portable digital systems (such as high-quality images, faster scanning, increased patient throughput, and multiple storage options) and their decreasing prices are key factors driving the growth of this segment.
“Portable detectors segment expected to hold the largest share of the market in 2017.”
Based on portability, the FPDs market is segmented into fixed and portable detectors. The portable detectors segment is expected to dominate this market with the largest share due to their advantages over fixed detectors in 2017.
“Medical applications segment are expected to witness high growth during the forecast period”
Based on the applications, the X-ray detectors market is segmented into medical applications, dental applications, security applications, veterinary applications, and industrial applications. Medical applications segment is expected to grow at the highest rate in the forecast period. The growth in this segment can primarily be attributed to the advancement in the medical technology, rising geriatric population, increasing orthopedic and cardiovascular procedures.
“Asia to witness high growth during the forecast period.”
In 2017, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the market followed by Europe. However, Asia is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth in this regional segment is attributed to the increasing adoption of digital imaging systems, rising disposable income, growing number of awareness programs and symposia, and growing venture capital investment.
