The global medical X-ray generators market size was valued at USD 2.01 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% from 2023 to 2030. The heightened physician preference for X-ray imaging equipment is presumed to be responsible for the growth of medical X-ray generators. Moreover, the increasing adoption of medical X-ray generators in a wide range of applications, such as in-stent placements, locating blocked arteries, and treatment of malignant cancer cells, due to associated benefits is expected to fuel market growth in the future.
Benefits include the generation of rays with high penetrating rates to help obtain clear images for accurate diagnosis. These factors are expected to be responsible for the growing inclination of surgeons and physicians toward the devices, thus presenting a lucrative growth platform. The advent of technological innovations, such as the inclusion of carbon nanotubes that facilitate accurate diagnosis, precise control, and gated imaging along with the advent of X-ray tubes with liquid metal, sufficient enhanced resolution, and less exposure time, is enabling imaging of remote areas and small biological cells or tissue that need to be examined.
In addition, an increasing number of research activities in the direction of enhancing the current capabilities of X-ray machines are anticipated to fuel the growth over the forecast period. The increasing demand for efficiency, especially in the X-ray generator manufacturing industry, always presents new opportunities for growth. In the case of generators, the prediction of aging and excessive wear is demanded by the buyers, which would lead to better troubleshooting methods, if problems arise, and lead to the efficiency of instruments as user awareness would be high and that would lead to optimal utilization.
The growing disposable income in developing countries, technological advancement over the years, rising geriatric population prone to chronic diseases, increasing access to better healthcare infrastructure, and regulatory reforms are some of the key drivers of this market. NHS England issued legislation and code of practice and recommendations pertaining to the usage of ionizing radiation. These efforts were taken to reduce the probability of hazards, thereby promoting patient safety. Furthermore, significant initiatives undertaken by the health welfare organizations, such as the recommendations and guidance issued by the International Commission for Radiation Protection, to promote awareness and enhance safety levels across the region are driving the market in Europe.
Medical X-ray generators in respiratory applications are anticipated to grow at a constant rate during the forecast period. The constant growth rate is attributed to the high need to curb respiratory failure and enhance diagnostic procedures in pneumonia, lung cancer, and emphysema, which require efficient examination of remote areas. Medical X-ray generators are also utilized in therapeutic applications such as biopsy, radiotherapy, and angiography. This segment is anticipated to exhibit a constant growth rate throughout the forecast period owing to the increasing application of medical X-ray generators in radiotherapy, which involves the destruction of cancer cells. The widening scope of application can also be attributed to the rising prevalence of cancer globally.
The stationary segment held the largest share of over 65.0%, in terms of revenue, in 2022 as a consequence of the clinical urgency to incorporate the device for the large patient volume present that requires long-term treatment. Moreover, a consistent effort toward new product development by prominent companies globally is presumed to expand the base for growth.
The portable segment is expected to grow at a lucrative rate of 6.5% throughout the forecast period. The exponential growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing inclination of healthcare professionals toward the devices at ambulatory centers. Portable medical X-ray generators offer benefits including easy installation in remote areas due to their low-density material, deeming them suitable for incorporation in confined and remote spaces.
The cardiovascular segment held a dominant share of over 15.0% in 2022 as a consequence of the growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and heart failures, which is presumed to bolster the demand for highly efficient diagnostic imaging tools. Moreover, the presence of government organizations, such as the Public Health Service, consistently striving for promoting monoenergetic X-ray imaging systems is presumed to provide the market with considerable potential for growth.
Dental applications are anticipated to expand at a lucrative rate of 7.8% over the forecast period owing to the growing geriatric population base and unhealthy lifestyles, which cause dental problems globally. Also, the growing inclination of the general population toward aesthetics is resulting in an increased demand for X-rays generators. These factors are presumed to be the significant factors responsible for widening the scope for growth during the forecast period.
North America dominated the overall market with a revenue share of over 35.0% in 2022 owing to the high physician preference for radiographic diagnostic procedures due to the greater patient safety associated with these procedures. In addition, the presence of government initiatives promoting patient safety is responsible for market growth across this region. Medical devices that cannot be manufactured in different regions continue to present lucrative opportunities for U.S.-based medical X-ray device exporters. The U.S. captured a substantial share of the North American market in 2022. Consistent efforts by market players and government organizations to pass through the market barriers for sustained export opportunities will drive the market in this region.
Asia Pacific is anticipated to register a significant growth rate of 5.7% throughout the forecast period. This exponential growth is attributed to the expansion strategies and the high R&D investment by key players present in this region. Moreover, the availability of raw material parts at a relatively cheaper cost is contributing significantly to the growth in this region. The import, export, and trade pertaining to medical X-ray generators exert a major impact on the market in Europe. Moreover, the value of imported X-ray equipment, its accessories, and spare parts was found to be the highest in the medical device categories.
The market is consolidated and the growth is marked by prominent industry players undertaking strategies, such as mergers and acquisitions, geographical expansions, and product launches in order to capture a greater share of this vertical.
