United States Digital X-ray Devices Market - Growth, Trends, And Forecasts (2021-2026)

Published on: Feb 2021 | From USD $3250 | Published By: MORDOR INTELLIGENCE | Number Of Pages: 80

The United States Digital X-ray Devices Market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 7.27% during the forecast period with a revenue of approximately USD 2,871.21 million in 2019. The shift from conventional X-ray to digital X-Ray imaging is a rapid process, and it is expected to become the most widely used imaging method in the United States.

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to boost the growth of the digital x-ray devices market in view of the growing demand for chest x-rays. Also, digital X-ray devices provide digital images, which is a very important advantage over the current pandemic as maintenance films could be a tedious workflow. Also, many players have been actively involved in the development of advanced digital X-ray imaging solutions to be used in COVID-19 diagnosis. For instance, in May 2020, US FDA approved Aspenstate's AiRTouch Portable X-ray system to obtain rapid chest X-rays among the SARS-Cov2 virus-infected patients. Thus, in view of the ongoing pandemic and the extensive use of imaging solutions for accurate diagnosis and treatment of the infection in patients, the digital X-rays devices market is expected to be significantly impacted over the crisis.

The advantage of exposure to lower radiation dose by the patients is expected to boost the adoption to digital imaging and thus aids in the increase of workflow and efficiency, with safety to patients. In an age where the cost of medicine is high, lowering the cost per procedure while increasing safety is important for better patient care.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, which favors digital imaging over other methods, reduces Medicare payments by 20% for providers using analog X-ray studies. Thus, for those performing imaging studies on computed /digital radiography equipment, payments will be reduced by 7% during 2018-2022 and 10% thereafter. This will positively influence the market’s growth in the US.

Additinally, according to the US Arthritis Foundation, in 2019, arthritis was the leading cause of disability among adults in the United States. By conservative estimates, about 54 million adults were diagnosed with arthritis, and almost 300,000 children were suffering from arthritis or a rheumatic condition in 2019.? The growing number of people suffering from arthritis or rheumatic condition results in an increase in demand for digital radiographs.

Also, as per the research article titled “Femoral Neck Fractures” 2020, there will be approximately 300,000 cases of hip fractures annually in the United States by 2030. The economic burden of hip fractures is amongst the top 20 expensive diagnoses, with approximately USD 20 billion spent on the management of this injury annually.

Thus, the increasing prevalence of medical conditions that require X-ray imaging, increased technological innovations, and government policies are aiding the market’s growth over the forecast period in the United States.

Key Market Trends

Direct Radiography segment by Technology is Expected to Witness a High CAGR Over the Forecast Period

Direct Radiography is anticipated to observe significant growth and hold a major market share in the Digital X-ray devices market in the United States over the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the studied segment include the increasing research and development activities by the key players for the innovation of novel products with sophisticated features and high standards of healthcare facilities in the country.

The Direct Digital Radiography directly captures the image at the detector with no requirement of any intermediate interface, thus aids in the flexible and smooth workflow. Hence, the added benefits of increased efficiency and productivity of Direct radiography over other X-ray Imaging technology surge the demand for the increased development and launch of products, based on Direct radiography technology. For instance, in Dec 2019, Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc., collaborated with Shimadzu Medical Systems USA in developing Direct Digital radiography (DDR), by incorporating Konica Minolta's new advanced image processing and Shimadzu's RADspeed Pro radiographic imaging system and thus, aimed to accelerate the commercialization of Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) in the United States healthcare market. Thus, in view of the advanced features of direct radiography and the growing focus by key players in R & D activities, the studied segment is expected to witness tremendous growth in United States over the forecast period

The DDR systems provide high-speed workflow for technologists and speeded-up patient management, which is especially important in outpatient settings where patients need to return to home or work. Less than 1 minute is needed between exposure and image acquisition.

Competitive Landscape

The digital X-ray devices market is moderately competitive, and a few companies are currently dominating the market. These companies include GE Healthcare, MinXray, Inc, Varex Imaging Corporation, Carestream Health, Fujifilm Holdings Corporation among others. The competition in the market is majorly based on technological advances and the pricing of digital X-ray equipment. Additionally, the key players have been involved in various strategic alliances such as acquisitions, collaborations along with the launch of advanced products to secure the position in the United States market. For instance, in Jan 2021, Carestream Health showcased its expertise in medical imaging at the virtual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) with a range of advanced bedside imaging solutions to digital radiography room imaging systems.
