Rising geriatric population, which is highly susceptibility to various chronic conditions such as cardiovascular, orthopedic, and respiratory diseases, coupled with increasing patient awareness is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. In addition, increasing level of accuracy with 3D visualization has led to an increasing demand for these devices in the recent years, allowing healthcare experts to understand the intensity of a disease better.

These devices allow real-time viewing in image-guided surgeries. During the surgery of vascular abdominal aortic aneurysm, the main body of the stent graft is positioned right below the renal arteries; C-arms can assist in marking the anatomy as well as easy positioning of the device according the surgeon’s requirement, hence increasing the accuracy of C-arms in various surgeries.

In developing countries such as India, Mexico, and Brazil, governments are continuously investing huge amount of funds to improve patient-centered care. Expected growth of geriatric population, rise in prevalence of orthopedic injuries, and rapid growth in foreign investments is anticipated to boost the revenue generation in the developing nations of Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East.

Product Insights

Mobile C-arm devices are good options for budget-conscious healthcare settings that have limited financial resources. Thus, demand for these devices is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. In addition, mobile C-arms offer optimum angle for a high-quality images and allow easy movement & positioning (motorized axes), while keeping the patient comfortable. For instance, Ziehm Vision RFD Hybrid and RFD 3D are the first mobile C-arms that offer four motorized axes, helping the healthcare experts gain total control through a dual-joystick system. Full-size C-arms segment of mobile C-arms currently dominate the global market owing to their smaller size, lighter weight, and easy maneuverability as compared to mini C-arm devices.

Amongst full size and mini size mobile C-arms, the former captured the largest market share in 2016, as full-size C-arms have numerous medical applications and have higher prices. Moreover, adoption of full size devices is higher because of their longer existence and availability in the market.

Application Insights

Orthopedics & trauma segment dominated the market in 2016. The maneuverability of C-arm units for capturing accurate images from multiple positions is responsible for the largest share of the segment. In addition, these devices have wide applications in orthopedic surgeries due to their precision in operating rooms, which includes good image quality, operability, versatility, and efficiency. Products such as cios Alpha, cios Fusion, and cios Select from Siemens Healthineers have greatly contributed and set benchmarks in a number of orthopedic surgeries. Thus, rising number of orthopedic surgeries is anticipated to augment the market growth.

The market for pain management is expected to foresee the highest growth during the forecast period. Major factors such as higher resolution, faster workflow, and greater maneuverability for pain management are expected to boost growth of the market.
