The world market for Interventional X-ray and mobile C-arm equipment is forecast to reach over $4.9 billion by 2026, according to a new report from Signify Research.
The world markets for interventional X-ray systems and mobile C-arms increased by 10.2% and 15.5% respectively in 2021. The markets recovered strongly as the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic subsided, and delayed orders were fulfilled.

In the mobile C-arm market, flat panel detector (FPD) 2D mobile C-arms are forecast to have the fastest growth through to 2026, with a revenue CAGR of 6.5%. Demand for image intensifier systems is being maintained by emerging regions or low-risk applications such as pain management in developed countries. The United States, China, Japan and Western Europe will continue to lead adoption of 3D C-arm technology. However, the penetration of 3D mobile C-arms must overcome barriers in the U.S. market, such as strong preferences for hybrid operating rooms (HORs) and Medtronic’s O-arm for spinal surgery, due to favourable reimbursement.
Within the interventional X-ray market, strong growth is projected for the structural heart market, with left atrial appendage closure procedures and mitral valve interventions maintaining clinical demand. Interventional neurology is a key growth area within interventional radiology. The increasing number of stroke centres globally, as well as adoption of bi-plane systems for multidisciplinary use, for instance for vascular procedures, is driving demand for interventional neurology systems. The primary applications for HORs include cardiac and vascular procedures, followed by spinal procedures.
• As clinical cases become more complex and interventional X-ray technology becomes more advanced, it is becoming increasingly difficult for interventionalists to gain expertise across all available software and applications.
