Global DEXA Equipment Market is poised to grow at 4.5% till 2022

According to Data Bridge Market Research new Market report “Global Dual Emission X-Ray Absorptiometry  DEXA Equipment Market, By Product Type (Central DEXA, Peripheral DEXA), By Application (Body Composition Analysis, Fracture Diagnosis, Bone Densitometry, Fracture Risk Assessment), By End-User (Hospitals, Clinics, Mobile Health Centers, Over the Counter), By Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East and Africa, Rest of the World) – Trends and Forecast to 2022”, is estimated at USD 204.6 million in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 267.3 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period from 2016 to 2022.Global Dual Emission X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) Equipment MarketReport Access:

The market is somewhat hindered owing to large cost of equipments and low or in some countries no reimbursements provided to DEXA tests. Also this market is facing tough competition from equipments such as body impedance analyzers (BIA), hydrostatic weighing devices, quantitative ultrasound (QUS) bone densitometers and quantitative computed tomography (QCT). The QUS bone densitometers are cheaper in nature and are well accepted among medical professionals but still do not provide the accuracy of DEXA systems. The market for DEXA equipments dominates the bone densitometry market while BIA is dominant over DEXA is body composition analyzers market.

The DEXA equipments are used in multiple fields such as fracture diagnosis, diagnosis of osteoporosis, fracture probability assessments and body composition analysis. These devices provide a assessment result in form of T-scores. The T score result -1 is considered normal, -1 to -2.5 is considered to be osteopenia and below -2.5 is considered osteoporosis. The decrease of bone density is considered to be osteoporosis and patients suffering from this ailment are more susceptible to fractures. Vertebral fractures and hip fractures are the major form of fractures caused due to osteoporosis. The incidence of vertebral fractures and hip fractures are higher in females as considered to males. Vertebral fractures are many times undiagnosed so the incidence of diagnosed fractures is only considered while deriving the markets growth. According to WHO statistics osteoporosis fractures worldwide is expected to reach 5395 million by 2050. Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the total number of osteoporosis fractures in 2020, with approximately 58% market share.

Market Segmentation: DEXA Equipment Market

  • The DEXA equipment market is segmented on the basis of product type, application end-user and geography.
  • On the basis of product type the DEXA equipment market is segmented into 2 product type central DEXA equipments and peripheral DEXA equipments. The central DEXA equipments are generally used in hospitals and clinics and are required for bone densitometry tests for vertebral column and hips, while it’s also used in body composition analysis. The central DEXA equipment segment dominates the market with majority of the shares owing to its high cost and DEXA being the gold standard in the bone density measurement market. The peripheral DEXA equipments (pDEXA) are small portable devices used to measure body extremities for fracture and osteoporosis. The DEXA equipments segment is poised to grow at the highest CAGR and is expected to dominate the market in terms of unit sales.
  • The market is also segmented on the basis of application into body composition analysis, fracture diagnosis, bone densitometry and fracture risk assessment
  • Based on application, the market is segmented into coronary artery disease, and peripheral artery disease.
  • On the basis of end-users the market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, mobile health centers and over the counter. The larger central DEXA equipments are in general found in hospitals and clinics owing to their size and cost while the pDEXA equipments are often found in mobile health vans, clinics and sold over the counter
