Digital Radiography Detectors Market

Digital Radiography Detectors Market: Direct Flat Panel Detectors Segment to Exhibit Highest Revenue Share: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2026

Digital Radiography Detectors Market: Introduction

The digital radiography detectors is an integral part of the x-ray system, used to convert x-ray photon energy into visible light. Dynamic, flat-panel, and solid-state x-ray detectors are widely used in fluoroscopy imaging across various medical applications. The dynamic x-ray detector is made of thin layers of x-ray absorptive materials, which are overlaid on the active matrix array. The most common types of materials used in these x-ray detectors are scintillators, crystalline silicon (Si) or amorphous silicon, & phosphor detectors. The dynamic x-ray detectors are sold in two basic designs, indirect-conversion & direct conversion.

The adoption of flat panel x-ray detectors in the global digital radiography detectors market has increased significantly owing to their distinct benefits over computed radiography (CR), charged couple detectors (CCD), and analogue  detectors (film based).

The participants operating in the digital radiography detectors market are introducing new products in the retrofit segment, which can be used to upgrade the current analogue and CR detector systems to digital radiography systems, and help to cater small hospitals and imaging centres.

Digital Radiography Detectors Market: Value and Forecast

In terms of revenue, the global digital radiography detectors market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period and is expected to be valued at US$ 2,713.7 million by the end of 2026.

Digital Radiography Detectors Market: Dynamics

The growth of the global digital radiography detectors market is primarily driven by increasing incidence of cancer and sports-related injuries, which present a large patient pool undergoing diagnostic imaging tests each year, particularly in emerging countries. Besides, the growing number of geriatric population, which is prone to injuries, is expected to drive the demand for radiography tests and consequently contribute to the growth of the global digital radiography detectors market over the forecast period.

Introduction of new technologies by the manufacturers is expected to boost the demand for fluoroscopy devices and C-arms among end users, and also contribute to growth of the digital radiography detectors market.

Technological advancements, such as portability, and increasing application of a-Si detectors in dental CBCT and orthopaedic imaging are expected to build a huge platform for the growth of the digital radiography detectors market globally.

Furthermore, increasing healthcare spending, favourable reimbursements and growing awareness among healthcare professionals are some of the other factors driving the growth of the digital radiography detectors market in most of the developing countries. However, high cost of the devices and tests is a major factor expected to hinder the growth of the digital radiography detectors market.

Digital Radiography Detectors Market: Regional Outlook

The global digital radiography detectors market is segmented into eight regions, namely North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific (Asia-Pacific excluding Japan), Japan and Middle East & Africa (MEA). In terms of value, North America is expected to be the dominant regional market for Digital Radiography Detectors by 2018 end and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period.

Japan and Asia Pacific are expected to be the fast-growing regional markets for digital radiography detectors over the forecast period. Western and Eastern Europe are expected to mark substantial shares in the global digital radiography detectors market over the forecast period. However, the MEA digital radiography detectors market is expected to represent sluggish growth due to lack of awareness and reach of technology in most of the countries.
