Also, the market is currently benefiting from the shift to precision medicine, and an increasing utilization of digital X-ray devices in therapy as well as diagnosis/screening and intervention, is also expected to drive the future market growth of the digital X-ray devices across the globe.

The coronavirus pandemic has since spread rapidly in breadth and depth to the rest of the world. The increased strain the disease has placed on healthcare systems worldwide is being realized in many countries. The pandemic is likely to have a profound impact on digital radiography practices across many countries globally. Social distancing coupled with lockdown recommendation in most of the countries to minimize the transmission of coronavirus has led to decreased demand of certain health care practices such as medical imaging. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic several radiology departments have experienced a rapid decline in volume of imaging cases.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the digital x-ray market during the forecast period:

  • Emergence of AI & Robotic Advanced X-ray Devices
  • High Demand for Interventional X-ray Devices
  • High Growth Potential in LMICs

Global Digital X-Ray Devices Market Segmentation
The global digital x-ray devices market research report includes a detailed segmentation by application, portability, end-user, geography. The global general radiography market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% during the period 2019–2025. General radiography with advanced digital X-ray devices offer faster scanning, increased patient throughput, and better image quality. Digital general radiography uses much less radiation and the images can be enhanced using computers. Digital X-ray imaging for general radiography offers many advantages including a wider dynamic range and the ability to manipulate the images generated. The wider dynamic range offers acceptable images quality at a range of dose levels, and thus repeat exposures and any biological risks to the exposed individual can be reduced. Therefore, owing to these advantages along with rising need for disease diagnosis, the segment is witnessing higher uptake of general radiography application.

The rise in the patient pool, coupled with the growth in the geriatric population, technological advancements is contributing to the growth of the segment. Static digital X-ray devices offer appropriate image interpretation and clinical action due to increase in communication between the attending professional and the radiologist within the same room. However, static systems need heavy and costly apparatus. Such expenses normally restrict their use in academic & research institutes, which is likely to witness slow growth during the forecast period.

The hospitals end-users segment is likely to witness an absolute growth of over 49% during the forecast period. However, hospitals are considered as the traditional healthcare providers of digital X-ray procedures and the volume is high, especially in developing countries. The growth is primarily due to the adoption of advanced digital X-ray devices as majority of patients with high risk/complexity of diseases preferring hospitals for treatment due to advanced infrastructure facilities available in major private and public hospitals.
