Fluoroscopy and Mobile C-arms Unit Sales to Reach 9.6 Thousand Units by 2012, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts

Characterized by relative maturity and sluggish growth, the global fluoroscopy and mobile C-arms market is forecast to crawl to 9,600 units worth $1.3 billion in 2012. Replacement sales form a large chunk of total market, particularly in the developed world. Growth is mainly anticipated from untapped developing markets such as Asia-Pacific.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2008 -- Worldwide fluoroscopy and mobile C-arms, a part of medical imaging industry, is characterized by relative maturity and sluggish growth, particularly in the developed regions of the world. As a result, majority of the sales are generated from replacement markets. Growth is primarily anticipated from untapped developing markets such as Asia-Pacific that offer enormous opportunities for growth.

Minimally invasive procedures require minimum cuts to be performed on the operating area. Hence, surgeons have very little view of the internal body part being operated. For this purpose, surgeons make use of appropriate imaging equipment such as mobile C-arms to obtain real time images of internal body parts, and guide them during the interventions. With an increasing emphasis on minimally invasive procedures worldwide, the demand for mobile C-arms is expected to increase in future. Full-Size Mobile C-arms market represents the larger product segment, with about 54% share of the total market in terms of unit sales, as stated by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Fluoroscopy market, the other segment analyzed in the report, is forecast to witness lackluster growth. In terms of geographic regions, United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific together account for more than 65% share, both in terms of volume and value sales. However, Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing region until 2015.

Fluoroscopy and mini C-arms industry, like any other specialized healthcare sector, is highly competitive. The market is principally driven by innovative technological developments. The market is characterized by ever-changing technological advancements with key players engaged in hectic and cost intensive R&D operations, to develop affordable and multi-functional equipment. Several players are also engaged in the development and manufacture of other related products for hospitals and healthcare institutions. Players with such extensive range of offerings coupled with extensive financial backing possess the potential to garner major share in the global imaging market. Apart from a wide ranging R&D activity, production and marketing competence also form key components in enhancing the market position of a company worldwide. Leading players in the world fluoroscopy and mobile C-arms market include GE Healthcare, F&M Control, SL, Hologic, Inc., Imaging3, Inc., Philips Medical Systems, Shimadzu Medical Systems, Siemens Medical Solutions, Toshiba Medical Systems Corp., Xograph Imaging Systems, and Ziehm Imaging GmbH.
