Global Radiography Systems Market and is expected to grow at a ~5% CAGR during 2022 to 2028: Ken Research


Radiography System is outlined as an exposure device/equipment that is primarily used for radiography activities such as X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scan, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and others. Radiography is used in a variety of examinations and procedures that necessitate a record of a static image, including dental examinations, mammography, orthopedic evaluations, chiropractic examinations, and static recording during fluoroscopy.

According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Radiography Systems Market was valued at ~US$ 25 billion in 2017, it is estimated to be ~US$ 30 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a ~5% CAGR during 2022 to 2028, with market size of ~US$ 40 billion in 2028. The rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurology disorders, and others, combined with advancements in healthcare systems, has resulted in an increased emphasis on early detection.

  • Increasing use of AI-enabled diagnostic equipment for rapid diagnosis and predictive analysis, notably in developed countries is one of the major contributing factors to the rising demand for radiography systems.
  • The increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis worldwide, combined with the growing need to diagnose, monitor, and treat health conditions, such as pregnancy, swelling or infection in internal organs, spinal injuries, dental issues, and tendon/ligament tears, is likely to drive market growth in the forthcoming years.
  • High prices for medical imaging tests and limited access to critical infrastructure, particularly in developing countries, are expected to stifle market growth.
  • The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the global radiography systems market in 2020, primarily due to a decline in patient visits to hospitals and clinics. However, Computed Tomography (CT) scanners witnessed a higher demand in 2020, owing to the need for High-Resolution CT (HRCT) scans for the diagnosis of COVID-19 patients through chest scans.

Key Trends by Market Segment

By Type: The X-Ray Devices segment held the largest market share of the Global Radiography systems Market in 2021, owing to the increase in the demand for early-stage diagnosis of chronic diseases, such as lung infection, breast cancer, enlarged heart, and blocked blood vessels.

  • The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has also propelled the demand for x-ray systems across countries due to an increase in the number of COVID patients undergoing chest testing.
  • Increasing the use of interventional x-ray systems, including C-arms for image-guided surgeries, is also expected to boost x-ray system market growth.

By Application: The Cardiology segment held the largest market share of the Global Radiography systems Market in 2021, primarily due to the surge in the prevalence of cardiovascular disease.

  • The growing geriatric population exacerbates the need for healthcare products and services as such population is more vulnerable to diseases, such as respiratory (tuberculosis and pneumonia), oral, orthopedic (osteoporosis), and cardiovascular diseases.
  • The ubiquity of high blood pressure among individuals across countries is also contributing to the demand for cardiac radiography systems, as high blood pressure constitutes one of the most important risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

By End User: The Hospitals and Clinics segment accounted for the majority share of the Global Radiography systems Market in 2021.

  • The continuous development in the healthcare industry across countries has raised the requirement for hospitals with advanced techniques and facilities.
  • The growing number of chronic diseases tested during the assessments and processing of body fluids, particularly following the worldwide explosion of the COVID-19 pandemic, are another major factor influencing the demand for radiography systems in hospitals and clinics.
