Market Synopsis

Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), often known as bone densitometry, is an advanced x-ray technique used to evaluate bone density. DEXA is today's standard method for assessing bone mineral density (BMD). DEXA is a more consistent technique that exposes users to less radiation, which uses two energies to produce precise outcomes regardless of the thickness and composition of the soft tissue. Axial, peripheral, and whole body scans using the DEXA method can evaluate bone density. Bone, fat, and lean mass are all evaluated using this technique. The method also has a high degree of precision and can quickly identify minute variations in bone mineral content measured at different anatomical sites. This market holds a high growth potential as DEXA is by far the most used method for determining bone mineral density since it is considered to be affordable, accessible, simple to use, and capable of providing an accurate assessment of bone mineral density in adults.

Market Influencer

The market for dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA)is anticipated to be driven bythe increasing incidence of osteoporosis and other bone related disorders worldwide. For instance, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, an estimated 10 million Americans who are 50 years of age or older have osteoporosis. Most of these individuals are female. Growing research activities in bone related disorders and thus increase in adoption of this technology by end users is further expected to contribute to the market growth. For instance,

  • In March 2020, Kasturba Hospital, Manipal, installed the Dual Energy X ray Absorptiometry (DXA) device.

  • In September 2020, The Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) device, manufactured by GE Lunar, was installed by the TelenutritionCenter.

Growing awareness and various initiatives by government, manufacturers and service providers are expected to boost the dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in October 2022, HKT's one-stop telemedicine platform DrGo announced a partnership with Quality HealthCare Medical Services (QHMS) to launch "Care for Osteoporosis," a targeted osteoporosis awareness campaign, on World Osteoporosis Day. The initiative will pay for 100 high-risk people to get bone-density testing provided by QHMS in an effort to raise public awareness of bone health and lower fracture risks connected to bone density.The initiative will fund for 100 high-risk people to get bone-density testing provided by QHMS in an effort to raise public awareness of bone health and reduce bone density-related fracture risks.

The key players operating in the dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) market include GE HealthCare, Hologic, Medilink, and Swissray among others.
