Global Fluoroscopy C-arms Market 2016-2020
About Mobile C-Arm
A mobile C-arm is a form of specialized diagnostic equipment that employs overhead X-ray image intensifiers, which aid in the visualization of the anatomical structure using fluoroscopic dyes. It offers safe screening as it is a non-invasive device and allows for rapid diagnosis and treatment. The development of the C-arms increases the emphasis on MIS, leading to reduced hospital stay. Therefore, there will be an increase in sales of C-arm equipment components in the hospital sector during the forecast period. The growing number of ambulatory surgical centres that perform numerous procedures is expected to further increase the demand for mobile C-arms in the market during the forecast period.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global flouroscopy C-arms market to grow at a CAGR of 4.02% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global flouroscopy C-arms market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of fluoroscopy C-arms.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Flouroscopy C-Arms Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global flouroscopy C-arms market: GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, and Shimadzu.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Allengers Medical Systems, EcoRay, Eurocolumbus, Hologic, INTERMEDICAL, ITALRAY, Omega Medical Imaging, OrthoScan, and Toshiba Medical Systems.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the key trends for market growth will be effective results in combination of radiography and fluoroscopy systems. The convergence of radiography and fluoroscopy systems is expected to have a positive impact on market growth during the forecast period. Recently, Philips Healthcare launched DuoDiagnost, combining radiography and fluoroscopy devices in one system. The combination of equipment, offers better price-performance ratio, occupies less space, and can be used for several applications. Also, healthcare institutions can achieve a better return on investment by implementing such equipment.”
According to the report, technological advances will be a key driver for market growth. Advances in technology and upgradation in equipment determine the demand and usage of any medical device. In the field of medical imaging, new products with improved features and parameters are preferred by end-users worldwide. The latest fluoroscopy systems are equipped with high-quality image intensifiers and spectral shaping filters to obtain high-clarity images. Radiation-reduction devices are attached to existing fluoroscopy systems to make them safe for use, by radiologists and other surgeons. Also, the upgrading of the systems by installing inverter generators with medium frequency, enables high-performance switching capability in fluoroscopy devices.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges for the market will be alternative imaging modalities posing threat to C-arm devices. Several medical imaging modalities, such as analog X-ray, MRI, tomography, and ultrasound are substitutes for fluoroscopy. The sales of these modalities are increasing more rapidly when compared to sales of fluoroscopy systems. Also, fluoroscopy is used only for specific purposes, such as orthopedic surgery, barium X-ray tests, catheter insertion, and blood flow studies, which is limiting the usage of fluoroscopy as well as mobile C-arm equipment in the market.
