Medical X-Ray Film Processor Market Development Analysis Contributing Top Vendor Landscape and Economic Growth 2027
Global Medical X-Ray Film Processor Market Analysis, Size, Share, Outlook and Forecast to 2021-2027 is a professional and in-depth research report on the world’s major regional market conditions, focusing on the main regions (North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific). The market attractiveness analysis provided in the report aptly measures the potential value of the market providing business strategists with the latest growth opportunities.
The most significant aspect of X-ray image processing is the medical x-ray film processor; these processors are used to interpret the information carried by weakened x-ray beams as they pass through tissues. They transform an intangible vision into a visible one. The main component of an x-ray film is a radiation-sensitive, photographically active material in the form of emulsion, which is applied on a base.
The film is exposed to various chemical solutions for a predetermined amount of time in the processor. Development, stopping the development, fixing, washing, and drying are the five major phases in X-ray film processing. There are two types of medical x-ray film processors in the market: semi-automated film processors and completely automatic film processors, depending on the product type.
Global Medical X-Ray Film Processor Market Dynamics
To maintain their strong position in the medical x-ray film processor market, key players are pursuing a variety of market strategies such as partnerships, mergers, collaboration, and the renewal of government ISO certification. Royal Philips, a global leader in health technology, announced in March 2019 that it had signed an agreement to buy Carestream Health Inc.’s Healthcare Information Systems business, a US-based provider of medical imaging and healthcare IT solutions for hospitals, imaging centres, and specialty medical clinics.
In April 2018, Merry X-Ray Corporation (MXR) announced the purchase of Nationwide Imaging Services, Inc. Nationwide is an international broker, re-conditioner/re-seller, parts-supplier, and servicer of medical imaging equipment. In 2017, Codonics Inc. and Plexus Technology Group LLC (Plexus TG), a provider of Anesthesia Information Management Systems (AIMS), strengthened their partnership by elevating Plexus TG to a value-added reseller for Codonics Safe Label System (SLS).
The market for medical X-ray film processors is predicted to develop due to new product introductions. Agfa HealthCare, for example, announced a digital radiography (DR) upgrade programme in May 2016, which allows for a rapid transition from old film-based X-ray equipment to digital X-ray systems. In November 2013, PerkinElmer, launch the XRpad 4336 wireless cassette detector component for easy upgrade from film to digital, leading to better image quality and lower costs. The XRpad 4336 cassette detector is a wireless, lightweight cassette-sized flat panel detector component suitable for the full range of digital radiography (DR) applications.
The global medical x-ray film processor market is predicted to rise due to an increase in the number of road accidents, injuries, and trauma around the world. According to a 2018 research by the World Health Organization (WHO), road traffic crashes cost most countries 3% of their GDP, and 90% of all road fatalities occur in middle and low-income countries. Also, road accidents are the leading cause of death among people aged between 15 and 29 years. More than 1.25 million people die annually as a result of road accidents.
Furthermore, the medical x-ray film processor market is benefiting from an increase in patient visits to physicians for minor bone injuries caused by sports, employment, and other factors. According to a 2013 survey by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, approximately 18,623,616 people saw a doctor for knee pain symptoms and injuries, and approximately 7,853,011 people saw a doctor for leg injuries.
Furthermore, the medical x-ray film processor market is expected to rise due to the increasing adoption of imaging techniques in the healthcare sector. For example, according to the National Health Services U.K. diagnostic imaging dataset statistical release, around 41 million medical imaging tests were reported in England in 2017, nearly 3.49 million imaging tests were performed in January 2017, with radiograph (X-ray) being the most common performed medical procedure 1.89 million times.
The medical x-ray film processor market is likely to be hampered by the availability of alternative imaging technologies with superior imaging solutions, such as MRI, and the high maintenance costs associated with the use of medical x-ray film processors.
Global Medical X-Ray Film Processor Market – Regional Landscape
The global medical x-ray film processor market is divided into five regions: North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. Because of the development of breakthrough imaging technologies and well-established healthcare facilities, North America dominates the worldwide medical x-ray film processor market. For example, according to published report in National Science and Technology Council 2017, 79 million CT scans, 39 million MRI scans, and 1.7 million PET scans were performed in the U.S in 2015.
Due to the high occurrence of trauma and traffic road accidents in the region, Asia Pacific is expected to lead the worldwide medical x-ray market, followed by Europe. For example, according to the report of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways India 2016, around 4,94,624 people were injured in 4,80,652 number of road crashes and 1,50,785 people were killed in 2016. Also, the number of road crash deaths have increased by 31% from 2007 to 2017 and that of fatal road crashes have increased by 25.6% in the same period.
