Hospital Mobile X-Ray Market: Increasing prevalence of chronic conditions drives the adoption of hospital mobile X-ray systems

The hospital mobile X-Ray market was valued at US$ 1,604.92 million in 2019 and it is projected to reach US$ 3,479.79 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.2% during 2020–2027.

X-ray technology is widely used in the healthcare system, mostly for diagnostic applications. It is used as a part of radiography, radiotherapy, and fluoroscopic-type procedures for fast and highly penetrating imaging, as well as in high bone content areas. There are different types of X-ray machines for medical applications such as mobile, stationary, computed radiography, direct radiography, and others. These machines are installed in hospitals,  clinics, and diagnostic centers.

Increasing prevalence of chronic conditions drives the adoption of hospital mobile X-ray systems. Cancer, cardiovascular conditions, and musculoskeletal diseases are among the leading chronic diseases responsible for the maximum deaths and disabilities. According to a data published by Arthritis Foundation in 2019, around 54 million adults were diagnosed with arthritis in the US. Also, nearly 300,000 babies and children are affected by arthritis or a rheumatic condition. According to a study published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2019, an estimated 20.0–30.0% of the people suffer from painful muscular conditions across the world. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of chronic conditions drives the growth of hospital mobile X-ray market.

Key Findings from The Hospital Mobile X-Ray Market

The global hospital mobile X-ray market, based on technology, is bifurcated into computed radiography and direct radiography. The computed radiography segment held a larger share of the market in 2019. However, the direct radiography segment is expected to register a higher CAGR in the market during the forecast period.

Based on ward, the global hospital mobile X-ray market is segmented into operating theaters, ICU and neonatal ICU, central X-ray departments, emergency departments, premature birth wards, and others. The operating theaters segment held the largest share of the market in 2019, and the emergency departments segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during 20202027.

Mostly, patients suffering from acute respiratory failure are admitted in the emergency department. A few of the most common causes of non-traumatic breathing difficulties are lower respiratory tract infections, acute cardiopulmonary edema, acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or asthma. To treat patients with these conditions, emergency departments demand x-ray services.   in the US.

Agfa-Gevaert Group, SEDECAL, IDETEC MEDICAL IMAGING, Koninklijke Philips N.V., SternMed GmbH, DMS Imaging, Carestream Health Inc., INTERMEDICAL S.r.l. IMD Group, DELFT IMAGING, and OR Technology are among the key players operating in the hospital mobile X-ray market.

Market Insights

In this new era of preventive care, most of the market players and medical practitioners are investing in mobile X-ray systems. The adoption of mobile X-ray system offers benefits to both medical practitioners and patients. One of the major benefits of these systems is its capability to avoid extra movements and transports of patients with severe health conditions. Most of the mobile X-ray systems are equipped with a stand on wheels, while some are motorized, enabling technologists to transport the X-ray system easily and quickly. For instance, a new digital mobile X-ray system launched by Canon Medical in August 2020 is equipped with enhanced technologies that can streamline bedside exams to improve the workflow and productivity of medical imaging. Additionally, the system offers security features such as anti-collision technologies and pressure sensitive steering for secure imaging.
