High cost of devices to hamper market

Surgical imaging arms have high acquisition as well as maintenance cost for health care settings. Constant evolution in different surgical arms with introduction of new features and designs has fueled the prices of these products. For instance, an advanced fixed C-arm costs about US$ 1Mn to US$ 2 Mn. The high price of these devices prompts the health care setting to extend the use of the surgical imaging arms beyond their stipulated average life, and this is observed in developing countries. This is a key factor restraining the market.

C-arm surgical imaging devices equipment to lose market share

The report offers detailed segmentation of the global surgical imaging arms market based on product, application, and end-user. Based on product, the C-arm surgical imaging devices segment is projected to dominate the global market, due to the presence of major players in the segment. However, the segment is expected to lose market share during the forecast period, due to certain technical specification of these devices and availability of advanced surgical imaging arms such as O-arm, which was designed to overcome the issues with C-arm. The G-arm surgical imaging arms segment is anticipated to gain market share. Its share is anticipated to rise from 0.9% in 2017 to reach almost 1.3% by the end of 2026, due to advantages of the device such as two x-ray beams asynchronously provide the customer with bi-lateral video and images, offering the user a more comprehensive picture, as compared to that offered by the traditional C-arm.

Market in North America to expand at considerable pace and create high incremental opportunity

In terms of value, North America held a major share of the global market in 2017. This is due to the high rate of adoption of advanced devices in surgery and increase in focus on research and development in the U.S. Furthermore, high incidence of diseases, such as orthopedic and cardiovascular disease, in North America propels the demand for utilization of surgical imaging arms to carry out surgery. This, in turn, is projected to propel the surgical imaging arms market in North America from 2018 to 2026. Rise in healthcare investment in countries, such as China, in the region and rise in the geriatric population, which leads to several orthopedic and cardiovascular issues that require surgery, are anticipated to drive the surgical imaging arms market in Asia Pacific. Rising incidence of fractures due to low-impact accidents among the obese population in Middle East & Africa is a major factor fuelling the market at a steady pace. For instance, according to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, in Iran, 50,000 hip fractures were recorded in 2010, which is projected to grow to 62,000 by 2020 and hence, the demand for surgery is also projected to increase. These factors are likely to propel the surgical imaging arms market in Middle East & Africa. The market in the region is expected to expand at a CAGR of above 4.6% from 2018 to 2026.
