Digital Radiography Market Forecasts to 2030 - Global Analysis By Product (Stationary and Portable), By Device Type (Direct Radiography and Computed Radiography), Equipment (Detectors, Phosphor Imaging Plate (IP), Photoconductor and Other Equipments), Positioning, Category, Application, End User and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Digital Radiography Market is accounted for $2.49 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $4.38 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period. Digital radiography is a medical imaging technique that uses digital technology to capture and store X-ray images. It has largely replaced traditional film-based radiography in many healthcare settings. In digital radiography, X-ray sensors or detectors are used to capture the X-ray image, and the resulting data is converted into a digital format for immediate viewing and analysis on a computer screen.
According to the GLOBOCON 2020 data, there were 2,281,658 new cancer cases identified in the U.S. in 2020, with 612,390 fatalities.
Growing number of cancer and dental disorder diseases
The increasing prevalence of cancer and dental disorders is a significant driver in the Digital Radiography market. As the number of patients requiring diagnostic imaging continues to rise, digital radiography technology offers a non-invasive and efficient means of obtaining high-quality medical images. It enables quicker and more accurate diagnosis, aiding healthcare professionals in delivering timely and effective treatments. The demand for digital radiography solutions, which provide reduced radiation exposure, improved image quality, and streamlined data management, is consequently on the upswing, underscoring its pivotal role in modern healthcare and contributing to market growth.
High initial costs
Digital radiography offers numerous advantages, the substantial upfront expenses for acquiring and implementing these systems can be a deterrent for healthcare facilities, particularly smaller ones with limited budgets. The capital-intensive nature of adopting digital radiography technology may deter some healthcare providers from making the transition, potentially slowing the overall market growth and adoption rate of this advanced imaging technology.
Increasing regulatory approvals and launch of digital radiography systems
As healthcare regulations become more stringent and demand for patient safety and advanced imaging capabilities rises, regulatory authorities are scrutinizing and approving new radiography technologies. For manufacturers, obtaining these approvals provides a competitive edge and opens doors for product launches. Healthcare institutions seek cutting-edge solutions that meet compliance requirements while enhancing patient care and efficiency. This opportunity encourages innovation and bolsters market growth, as the introduction of compliant and advanced digital radiography systems addresses the evolving needs of the healthcare industry.
Lack of familiarity to radiologists and radiographers
The unfamiliarity of digital radiography technology among radiologists and radiographers is a significant threat to the market. Many healthcare professionals are deeply rooted in traditional radiography practices, and shifting to digital systems demands training and adjustment. This transition can face resistance because of the comfort and familiarity of conventional film-based radiography. Such a knowledge gap may impede the smooth incorporation of digital radiography systems, resulting in a slower adoption rate.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the digital radiography market. The increased need for diagnostic imaging during the pandemic, particularly for chest X-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans to assess lung conditions, drove greater demand for digital radiography systems. Healthcare facilities adopted digital solutions to minimize physical contact, enhance image sharing for remote consultations, and reduce the time taken to obtain results. The pandemic accelerated the transition from traditional radiography to digital radiography, fostering innovation and growth in the market.
The direct radiography segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The direct radiography segment is projected to witness the largest market share during the forecast period. Direct radiography technology offers several advantages, including rapid image acquisition and high-quality images with minimal radiation exposure. Furthermore, advancements in DR sensors and image processing software have improved diagnostic accuracy. The versatility of DR systems can be integrated into various medical specialties. These factors collectively fuel the growth of the segment.
The cardiology segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The cardiology segment is estimated to achieve the highest CAGR in the digital radiography market during the forecast period. Cardiac imaging demands precision and real-time data, making digital radiography an ideal choice for capturing high-quality, dynamic images of the heart. With the increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases and a growing aging population, there is a rising need for advanced diagnostic tools in cardiology. Additionally, ongoing technological advancements in cardiac digital radiography systems, such as 3D imaging and dose reduction techniques, are driving the adoption of digital radiography in cardiology, contributing to its rapid growth.
Region with largest share:
During the forecast period, North America is expected to maintain its dominant position in the market. The region boasts a highly developed healthcare infrastructure and a strong focus on technological innovation, facilitating the rapid adoption of digital radiography systems. Additionally, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, along with a growing aging population, drives the demand for advanced diagnostic imaging solutions. Furthermore, North America is home to several leading manufacturers of medical imaging equipment, ensuring a steady supply of cutting-edge technology. These factors, along with substantial healthcare investments and research and development activities are fueling the growth in this region.
Region with highest CAGR:
The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period owing to the region's rapid economic development, leading to increased healthcare investments and infrastructure. As a result, there's a growing demand for advanced medical imaging technologies, including digital radiography, to cater to the expanding healthcare needs of the population. Moreover, the large and aging population in Asia Pacific presents a wide range of opportunities for diagnostic imaging services.
