These regulations are limiting the growth of the market to a large extent.
Portable Systems and Direct Digital Radiography: Breaking Historical Monopoly
Among the various products in the X-ray market, the market for stationary or fixed X-ray systems occupied a 60.1% share of the overall market in 2013. However, it is anticipated that the market for portable X-ray systems will show robust development in the coming years, and, by 2022, would surpass the stationary X-ray systems market.
Based on technology, the digital X-ray systems market has a monopoly over the global industry. In 2013, this market held a 69.1% share of the overall X-ray industry. Among digital X-ray systems, computed radiography systems dominated the market in 2013. However, the direct digital radiography systems market is likely to be the fastest developing one in the near future.
The global market for X-ray detectors is showing steady development. The advancement in X-ray detector technology coupled with the increasing demand for flat panel detectors is the key reason for this development. Major components of this market are flat panel detectors (FPDs) and other X-ray detectors. FPDs includes direct FPDs and indirect FPDs, whereas the others segment comprises CMOS, CCD, and X-ray films.
Asia Pacific: Rapid Development in China and India to Pave Path to Success
The North America X-ray market dominated the global X-ray industry, occupying 34.6% of the overall market in 2013.
