 North America Medical X-ray Generator Market

The advent of technological innovations, such as the inclusion of carbon nanotubes that facilitate accurate diagnosis, precise control, and gated imaging along with 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, increasing number of research activities, in the direction of enhancing the current capabilities of x-ray machines, is anticipated to drive the growth over the forecast period. For instance, in December 2013, research was conducted in Microsystems Technology Laboratories to facilitate detailed examination of soft tissues as well as to curb the expense associated with x-ray machines.

Medical X-Ray Generator Market Trends

The increasing demand for efficiency, especially in the X-ray generator manufacturing industry always presents new opportunities for development. In case of generators, the prediction of ageing 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 year, rising geriatric population prone to chronic diseases, and the increasing access to better healthcare infrastructure & regulatory reforms are some of the key drivers of this market.

NHS England issued a legislation & code of practice, and recommendations pertaining to the usage of ionizing radiations. 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 is a high impact rendering market driver 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 attributable to high need to curb respiratory failure and enhance diagnostic procedures in pneumonia, lung cancer and emphysema, which requires efficient examination of the remote areas.

Medical X-ray generators are also utilized in therapeutic applications such as biopsy, radiotherapy and angiography. This segment is anticipated to exhibit constant growth throughout the forecast period owing to increasing application of medical X-ray generators in radiotherapy, which involves destruction of cancer cells. The widening scope for application can also be attributed to rising prevalence of cancer globally.

Stationary medical x-ray generators accounted for the largest share in the product segment

Stationary medical x-ray generators held the substantial share, in terms of revenue, of over 68.0%, in terms of revenue,in 2015 as a consequence of the clinical urgency to incorporate the device for 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.

Portable medical x-ray generators are expected to grow at a lucrative CAGR of over 32.0% throughout the forecast period. The exponential growth can be attributed to the increasing inclination of healthcare professionals toward the devices at ambulatory centers and in emergency medicine. These benefits include easy installation in remote areas, due to their low-density material, deeming them suitable for incorporation in confined and remote spaces.

Cardiovascular was the largest application in the Medical X-ray Generator Market

Cardiovascular segment held a dominant share with over 20.0%, in terms of revenue, in the application segment as a consequence of growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and heart failures, which is presumed to bolster the demand for highly efficient diagnostic imaging tools. Moreover, presence of government organizations, such as Public Health Service, consistently striving for promoting monoenergetic x-ray imaging systems, is presumed to provide the market with considerable potential for development.

Dental applications are anticipated to witness exponential growth at over 8.0% owing to growing geriatric population base and unhealthy lifestyle, which cause dental problems globally. Also, growing inclination of general population toward aesthetics is resulting in an increased demand of x-rays generators. These factors are presumed to be the significant factors responsible for widening the scope for growth during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the overall market, in terms of revenue in 2015, owing to a dominant share that can be attributed 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 garnering a greater regional share for the Medical X-ray Generator Market across this region.

The U.S. is continued to be the leading in the import medical devices. Medical devices that cannot be manufactured in different regions continue to present lucrative opportunities for the U.S. based medical X-ray device exporters. U.S. captures a substantial share of the medical devices import market and consistent efforts by market players and government organizations, to pass through the market barriers, for sustained export opportunities is responsible for high potential present over this region.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness exponential growth of over 18.0% throughout the forecast period. This exponential growth is attributable to the expansion strategies and the high R&D investment by key players present in this region. Moreover, the availability of the raw material parts at a relatively cheaper cost is contributing significantly to the growth in this area.

The import, export and trade pertaining to medical X-ray generators exert a major impact on the medical X-ray generators market in Europe

Moreover, the value of imported X-ray equipment, its accessories as well as spare parts, was found to be highest in medical devices categories.

The Medical X-ray Generator Market has moved toward consolidation with Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corporation holding dominant positions

The market is consolidated in nature 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. In July 2016, Siemens Healthcare GmbH partnered with the organization Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust. Through this partnership, Siemens intends to provide four hospital sites with a range of management solutions for their medical imaging systems and solutions to optimize their operational workflow.
