Market Synopsis

In the medical film developing process, an X-ray film processor is an efficient device that moves medical X-ray films from one solution to another without the requirement of inserting film or cassette by humns. In the past, x-ray films were produced in a darkroom with no white light using a manual film processing method. The film was developed using only safelight. The safe light is a 15 W red light bulb with an amber filter in front of it, which reduces its output to 5 W. Cassette loading and unloading had to be done in a darkroom with safelight since x-ray film are light-sensitive. However, the issue was that developing the film took a long time. However, now the introduction of x-ray film processor has made production of x-ray films easier. Because the processing duration, solution temperature, and chemical replenishment are automatically regulated, it lowers the total processing time, increases the number of films that can be processed in a given time, and ensures less fluctuation of overall film quality than manually processed films.

Market Influencer

The main factors fueling the adoption of x-ray film processors by healthcare facilities are the growing incidents of trauma, injury, and traffic fatalities along with the increased adoption of medical imaging technology. For instance, according to the NHS England, in 2021 the total number of imaging procedures performed on NHS patients in England was around 44,008,635. In which x-ray accounted for the highest scans of 21,780,645.  X-ray film processors are now often employed by end users. Despite their high cost, they are quick, simple, and easy to clean. Numerous developmental flaws such finger prints and debris on the films, damage to the films from hangers, and improper rinsing are completely eliminated.[PK2]  They are been employed in number of applications such as dental, mammography and others. Constant technological adavancements, such as the integration with artificial intelligence is further expected to boost the market growth. The key players operating in the medical x-ray film processor market include Zimed Healthcare Ltd , Euroteck, HEXAGON INTERNATIONAL(GB) LIMITED, AFP Manufacturing, Baker Hughes Company, and PROTEC among others.
