The global digital mobile X-ray devices market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,767.0 Mn in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 4,787.0 Mn by the end of 2027.

Global Digital Mobile X-ray Devices Market: Drivers

The growth of the market is attributed to increasing demand for portable imaging devices. Digital mobile X-ray devices are portable that aids in avoiding transports and extra movements of patients. These devices further reduces the number of visits required to the radiology department for chest, skeletal, and abdominal X-ray examinations, which might cause discomfort among patients with severe health conditions. Radiograph examinations using mobile imaging equipment also offer less processing speed and eliminate long wait-times. Such benefits offered by digital mobile X-ray devices are expected to drive growth of the market over the forecast period.

Global Digital Mobile X-ray Devices Market: Opportunities 

Presently, the global digital mobile X-ray devices market is facing intense competition from re-manufactured and low cost equipment manufacturers in emerging economies. The rising price-sensitivity in the healthcare has created an opportunity for new low scale equipment to replace with new advanced devices. Similarly, China-made low-cost medical devices have put downward price pressure. Thus, rising adoption of low-cost and low-end imaging devices is limiting access to advanced imaging platforms.

Global Digital Mobile X-ray Devices Market: Restraints

However, increasing pressure on healthcare budget in the U.S. is expected to hamper growth of the global digital mobile X-ray devices market over the forecast period. The U.S. has witnessed rapid increase in the use of advanced medical imaging technology in the recent past. Therefore, medical imaging systems have emerged as the highest contributor to the healthcare expenditure in the U.S. This has led to certain reductions in Medicare payments. These factors are expected to restrain growth of the market over the forecast period.

Key Takeaways:

Among product type, mobile devices segment in the global digital mobile X-ray devices market was valued at US$ 2,370.1 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 4,343.7 by 2027 exhibiting a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period. This is attributed to advantages offered by mobile x-ray devices such as ease of use, and they can be taken patient’s bedside. Moreover, manufacturers such as GE Healthcare, Medtronic, and others offer advanced mobile x-ray devices in the market.

Among application, orthopaedic imaging segment held a dominant position in the global digital mobile X-ray devices market in 2018, accounting for 38.2% market share in terms of value, followed by chest imaging and dental imaging segments, respectively.
