The Europe Bone Densitometers Market would witness market growth of 4.4% CAGR during the forecast period (2018 – 2024). In Europe, Osteoporosis is a common underlying disease among the elderly with low-energy fractures, and thus, trauma surgeons play a key role in researching and managing the disease. Several foundations contribute to the awareness of osteoporosis such as the European Osteoporosis and Bone Disease Foundation. This awareness regarding the disease has fuelled the preventive measure for the bone related disorders, thereby raising the demand for bone densitometers in the region.
Osteoporosis in primary care is becoming increasingly important as populations in industrialized countries, like Germany, are aging rapidly leading to low bone density. General practitioners are ideally placed to identify patients at increased risk for osteoporosis and fracture and to manage them.
The bone densitometer uses a narrow, nearly invisible, and low-dose X-ray beam. The two energy peaks that invade the bones during the scanning process are used for soft tissue absorption and for penetrating inside the bone. Bone densitometer has special software which can analyze the bone density measurements automatically and display the results on a computer monitor.
Based on Technology, the market is segmented into DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry), Ultrasound, and Other. Based on Application, the market is segmented into Central Scan and Peripheral Scan. Based on the End user, the market is segmented into Hospitals, Clinics and Other end users.
Based on countries, the market is segmented into Germany, UK, France, Russia, Spain, Italy, and Rest of Europe. Germany remains one of the attractive bone densitometer markets as it is capable of adopting several different advanced imaging technologies. Moreover, the increased focused of healthcare providers on improving the quality and efficiency of imaging services, increase in the minimally invasive surgeries and improving healthcare infrastructure will further drive the market growth. Additionally, the large number of qualified users offers a power platform for the development of advanced imaging systems such as novel bone densitometer.
