Global Ambulatory X-ray Devices Markets

Ambulatory care refers to the medical services provided on an outpatient basis without hospitalization or other medical facility. Outpatient services include physician and dentist offices, medical laboratories, and home healthcare. Ambulatory care service is one of the major contributors to the hospital revenue and to the performance of the health care system. Ambulatory care offers various medical facilities such as diagnosis, observation, consultation, treatment, intervention, and rehabilitation services to patient with an advanced medical treatments.

X-ray equipment in healthcare is mainly used for imaging of bone structures, tumors, and breast cancer during surgeries, for detecting fractures in bones and teeth, as well as detecting pneumonia. Increasing prevalence of fractures due to osteoporosis, orthopedic disorders, dental problems, and increasing cases of tumor and cancer are expected to boost demand for X-ray equipment in the near future. Rapid advancements in technology and adopting advanced medical systems in hospitals, diagnostic centers, and ambulatory surgeries are poised to drive growth of the market over forecast period.

Digital radiography provides many advantages over conventional X-ray systems including high quality of enhanced  X-ray images as well as  quick image sharing facility and user friendly than conventional radiology systems. There is no requirement of any chemicals and film processing for digital radiography systems which makes digital X-ray more environmentally-friendly option. This also eliminates the recurring cost of processing chemicals and film as well as it lowers the time and money involved in disposing of them after they are used. Digital radiography devices are used to store images using both on-site and off-site PACS, thus making it more useful.

Integrated digital X-ray systems have a great advantage with technologist workflow and patient throughput, particularly for ambulatory care center imaging systems. This is mainly due to the rapid display of the acquired image quickly after the exposure. Recently, wired or wireless, portable digital X-ray systems are also trending on the domain in many instances, which is fueling the growth of ambulatory X-ray devices market in future.

Prevalence of fractures and orthopedic disorders is increasing globally and X-rays are majorly used to trace such fractures or disorders in bones. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2017, around 37.3 million falls occur every year, it may lead to fracture or bone injuries. Increasing incidence of diseases such as cancer, pneumonia, osteoporosis, and dental problems are expected to fuel demand for X-ray equipment, which in turn, is expected to fuel growth of the X-ray equipment market in the near future. High cost of advanced X-ray equipment have influenced inclination towards cheap X-ray equipment supplied by domestic manufacturers, which in turn, poses as a major restraint for growth of the market.

Based on the information provided by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2017, fractures occur due to osteoporosis are a serious concern in the U.S., followed by bone deformity among the rapidly growing aging population, this in turn, is expected to create a lucrative environment for growth of the x-ray equipment market over forecast period. Asia Pacific is expected to be the second-largest market due to increasing prevalence of breast cancer, for instance, near to a quarter, i.e., 24.0% of all the breast cancers were diagnosed within the Asia-Pacific, i.e., around 404,000 cases at a rate of 30 per 100,000. China with the rate of 46.0%, Japan 14.0% and Indonesia 12.0%, Australia 86 per 100,000 and New Zealand 85 per 100,000 also had much higher incidence rates than any of the other major countries in Asia Pacific region. Other major factor causing increase in the X-Ray market is dental related ailments, and orthopedic diseases, which are more predominant in China and India.

As per the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in 2016, it was found that approximately 35 million ambulatory surgical visits and 20 million surgical procedures were performed in hospital outpatient departments (HOPDs), with 15 million surgeries performed in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs).

As per the National Center for Health Statistics calculated in 2017, the number of outpatient surgery visits in the U.S. significantly increased from 2006 to 2016, from 20.8 million to 34.7 million visits, thereby raising the demand for ambulatory services,

Depending on the data published by the World Health Organization (WHO), about 31.0% of the population was affected with cardiovascular diseases in 2015. With the rising number of cases, the demand for diagnostic imaging systems is expected to grow as these systems helps in early detection of the diseases.

According to the National Institute of Health, the rate the younger people undergoes diagnostic imaging is much less as compare to the older ones. , patients aged 65 and older undergo diagnostic imaging at two or more times the rate of younger people. Women also tend to use slightly higher rates of imaging than men.

Factors driving growth in Global Ambulatory X- ray devices markets:

Increasing Investments, Funds, and Grants by Government Bodies for Modernization of Imaging Facilities:

The effective use of medical imaging equipment will be required to provide high-quality patient care for aging populations. In the X-ray equipment market, healthcare providers’ focus on efficiency is leading to the decline of fluoroscopy-dedicated X-ray systems because hospitals are consolidating multiple dedicated fluoroscopy rooms into singular rooms that are more cost-effective and have a higher utilization rate.

The Brazilian market for diagnostic imaging systems is expected for strong expansion through 2021 as a result of increased government investment in health care and the subsequent adoption of premium systems. 

Growth in the Number of Diagnostic Imaging Centers:

The future of the global diagnostic imaging market looks good with opportunities in hospitals and imaging centers. The global diagnostic imaging market is expected to reach an estimated $34.2 billion by 2025 and it is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2018 to 2025.

Additionally, growing access to healthcare insurance for U.S. citizens will continue to boost demand by making industry services more affordable for patients.

The use of diagnostic imaging has increased over the past decade, contributing to medical costs and to medical exposure to ionizing radiation. According to the recent overview from the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reported that the rise in volume of imaging services per Medicare beneficiary outstripped the growth of all other services. Many factors have contributed to this increase, which includes wider availability of technology, increased demand by patients and physicians, favorable reimbursement, and improvements in the technology resulting in a lower threshold for using it.

Some of the major players operating in global ambulatory xXray devices markets are Siemens AG, General Electric company, Koninklijke Philips N.V., FUJIFILM Corporation, Toshiba Corporation, Shimadzu Corporation, Hitachi Ltd, Carestrem Health, AmRad Medical, Symbion, IntergraMed America Inc., AmSurg Corp., Terveystalo Healthcare and DaVita HealthCare.
