Underdeveloped Healthcare Sector in Emerging Nations Reveals Mammoth Opportunity for Fluoroscopy and Mobile C-arms Market, reports TMR

The global fluoroscopy and mobile C-arms market is consolidated with the top four players accounting for 89.1% of the market as of 2012. Players are constantly focusing on the development of innovative technologies in order to address the needs of the ever changing market, Transparency Market Research (TMR) states in its new report. The threat of substitutes is expected to remain high owing to the presence of external substitutes such as MRI, CT-scan, and ultrasound system. Internal substitutes such as flat panel detector fluoroscopy and C-arm equipment also exist. Owing to moderate regulatory policies for entering this medical devices market, the threat of new entrants is likely to remain medium. 

According to the report, the global fluoroscopy and mobile C-arms market is expected to be worth US$2.08 bn by 2019. On the basis of product, the fluoroscopy segment is expected to lead and be worth US$1.12 bn by 2019. However, the mobile C-arm segment is anticipated to expand at a fast pace. By geography, North America is expected to lead and be worth US$743.0 mn by 2019. The high prevalence of diseases, availability of modern healthcare facilities, excellent healthcare infrastructure, and high awareness among patients and physicians are behind the growth of the market in North America. Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a significant CAGR between 2013 and 2019.

High Number of Orthopedic Surgeries to Fuel Demand for Fluoroscopy and Mobile C-arms

Doctors across the globe prefer fluoroscopy equipment and mobile C-arms for better contrast imaging and analysis of deformities and thus use them for the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic deformities, which is driving the market. The recent times have seen an increasing number of sports injuries and orthopedic surgeries among the geriatric population, which is benefitting the global fluoroscopy and mobile C-arms market. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the number of patients undergoing knee replacement surgeries among the age group of 65 years and above is rising every year. This holds a promise for growth in the global fluoroscopy and mobile C-arms market.

Availability of Better Substitutes to Challenge Adoption of Fluoroscopy and Mobile C-arms

The fluoroscopy equipment and mobile C-arms segment is facing fierce challenges from substitutes such as computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which are better and more efficient. As opposed to CT scan, fluoroscopy allows doctors to view images of only a specified area and merely in two-dimensional form, thus dampening their demand. Additionally, MRI is being preferred owing to the better contrast images generated as compared to fluoroscopy and mobile C. Another factor restraining the growth of the market is the stringent policies and restrictions by various governments on the use of refurbished medical imaging equipment.

Improving Healthcare Sector in Emerging Nations to Provide Opportunity for Growth in Market

Emerging countries of Asia Pacific such as Indonesia, Malaysia, China, India, and the other nations in Latin America, Africa and the Middle East are offering untapped opportunities in the healthcare sector. The swift growth in the number of hospitals and the remarkable progress in medical tourism from Europe and North America to the emerging nations are expected to jointly drive the global fluoroscopy and mobile C-arms market.

This information is based on the findings of a report published by Transparency Market Research titled “Fluoroscopy and Mobile C-arms Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2014 - 2020.”
