Radiographic Film Processor Market

Radiographic Film Processor Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2015 - 2025

Radiographic Film Processor Market Overview

Radiography is an imaging technique that uses electromagnetic radiations such as X-rays to internally visualize the structures. Radiographic film processors operates using two technologies, Computed radiography and Digital radiography. Computed radiography uses imaging plates made of photostimulable phosphor instead of films, where as digital radiography utilizes digital X-ray sensors to obtain the image. Computed radiography and digital radiography are preferred over conventional radiography as they do not require chemical processing, require lesser processing time, generating high-quality digital images. The demand for global radiographic film processor market is rising tremendously in medical and industrial fields. In medical field, radiographic techniques are mainly used in hospitals as they are becoming more receptive to new procedures like trans-catheter aortic valve implantation with the use of medical imaging as an alternative to open-heart surgery. These procedures are performed using high-end mobile C-arm X-ray equipment, requiring digital flat-panel detector (FPD) technology. Also, increasing acceptance of modern industrial radiography techniques in various industries such as automotive, gas and oil, and aerospace industry has improved the productivity of manufacturing plants while reducing the wastage significantly. The global radiographic film processor market is expected to rise during the forecast period due to increasing number of healthcare disorders affecting the large number of population coupled with technological advancement and increasing adoption of radiographic film processors in various industries.

The global market for radiographic film processor is expected to have a robust growth during the forecast period (2015-2025).
