X-ray detectors market to reach $3.31 Billion by 2022

by John R. Fischer , Staff Reporter
Growth in the X-ray detector market is expected to climb to $3.31 billion by 2022, according to a report by MarketsandMarkets.

From its 2017 value of $2.53 billion, demand is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate of 5.6 percent, driven by increasing public and private investments in digital imaging technology and the benefits and reduced costs of digital detectors.

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.



“Ever-increasing pressure to cut cost has compelled HC systems globally to rationalize their spending and invest in technology that will provide maximum benefits,” Rajiv Kalia, associate director of health care and Matthew Southmayd, senior director of health care at MarketsandMarkets, told HCB News. “The ability to screen large numbers of patients at a much lower cost, the time savings over traditional X-ray technologies, a significant reduction in radiation exposure for patients, reduction of chemicals and films in the facility, and the decreasing price of the technology has made this an area of high investment.”

X-ray detectors can enable reductions of up to 90 percent in radiation exposure and decrease scanning time from 15 minutes with traditional X-rays to two minutes on average with digital. Though still costly, prices for the technology have dropped at a rate of 5-10 percent annually.

The report breaks the market down into various categories, including application, with advances in medical technology, a growing geriatric population and increases in orthopedic and cardiovascular procedures expected to propel medical applications at the highest rate.

Demand is also based on type with flat-panel detectors currently holding the largest share of the market due to the advantages of FPD-based portable digital systems, such as high-quality images and faster scanning; decreasing prices; and a greater desire for retrofit FPD-based digital X-ray systems.

Another driver is reimbursement cuts for analog X-rays, with providers submitting claims for film-based X-rays experiencing 20 percent reductions since 2017 and those with computer radiography-based X-rays set to incur 7 percent reductions between 2018 and 2022, followed by 10 percent reductions in 2023 and beyond.

This will effectively move hospitals to more modern platforms, with many already purchasing DR systems and the majority converting their CR ones to DR to avoid paying higher costs associated with new X-ray systems. Studies have demonstrated that such changes could potentially lead to a 40 percent increase in the adoption of X-ray detectors.
