With the emergence of state-of-art imaging technologies that have been bringing a remarkable shift in the medical imaging industry, the c-arms market is booming. The fixed and mobile c-arms market size is significantly augmented due to the growth of minimally invasive surgery, which has gained a propitious prominence in the healthcare industry. This is because fixed and mobile c-arms enable procedural intelligence that optimize clinical operations involved in minimally invasive surgery. The fixed c-arms market is further expanding due to the synchronization of c-arms technique with the latest high-end technologies such as 3-D navigation and integration with image processing software that improves image quality. This makes it useful for a gamut of medical operations such as trauma and cardiovascular surgery. The players are coming up with the integration of the conventional x-ray technique with the latest technology to increase their fixed and mobile c-arms market share. For instance, cardiac and vascular models of GE Healthcare’s imaging systems utilize motion tolerance subtraction (MTS) which enables real-time subtraction without a masked image. This leads to a single contrast media injection that helps physicians perform complete extremity run-off in a single imaging run.

The major forces aiding to the swell in the fixed and mobile c-arms market size are the rising geriatric population and the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. Additionally, its application in urology, neurology, and thoracic surgery is further augmenting the scope for the c-arms market companies. The growth prospects in the c-arms market can be gauged by the growing trade of healthcare imaging equipment across the globe.

In 2018, $24.04 billion worth imaging equipment was traded across the globe, and the value witnessed a considerable year on year growth of 9%. A substantial part of it is attributable to the surging demand for c-arms.

As a result of growth factors coupled with the stupendous rise of the associated market such as endoscopy, the fixed and mobile c-arms market size was evaluated at $1.35 billion as of 2018. Furthermore, the forecast period 2019-2025 is projected to witness a growth in the c-arms market demand at a CAGR of 4.76%.

North America Subjugated the Global Industry With 35.80% Fixed and Mobile C-Arms Market Share in 2018:

The healthcare industry in North American countries has been garnering a handsome amount of investments from the government and private investors leading to a significant amount of healthcare expenditure. This is coupled with the progressive technological regime in the U.S. that is largely affecting all the industries including healthcare which reflects in the advancement of the c-arms market in the region.

· The Growing Healthcare Expenditure in the US Evidencing the C-Arms Market Rise –

The US healthcare expenditure grew by 3.9% in 2017 and attained a valuation of $3.5 trillion – a part of this sum is spent on medical imaging which evinces the c-arms market growth in the country.

· The Increase in the Geriatric Population Creating Revenue Avenues for the C-Arms Market Players In the US –

Americans aging 65 and more than that would be doubled from 52 million in 2018 to 95 million in 2060.

These 52 million people that are counted in the geriatric population influenced the fixed and mobile c-arms market in 2018, because they are more prone to the diseases such as cardiovascular ones that need diagnosis through digital imaging. With the growing geriatric population, the US c-arms market size will witness further increment.

· The Abundance of End-User Institutions in the US Supporting the Fixed C-Arms Market Growth –

In 2019, the US had 6,210 hospitals, and the figure excludes clinics.

Now, these hospitals are the predominant end-users of fixed and mobile c-arms. With the growing investments poured by the government in the healthcare infrastructure, the upcoming years shall witness a surge in the number of hospitals, which will further flourish the c-arms market.  

· The Canadian Healthcare Industry: A Lucrative Fixed and Mobile C-Arms Marketplace –

The total healthcare spending was estimated to be $253.3 billion in 2018. This expenditure includes money spent on medical imaging and devices such as x-rays and fixed and mobile c-arms. The increase in the number of people suffering from chronic and cardiovascular diseases, the country’s healthcare expenditure industry is poised to grow further, which will create a myriad of opportunities in the fixed and mobile c-arms market.

Similarly, Mexico is also proving to be a profitable c-arms marketplace. The North America c-arms market growth can be further fathomed by the increasing import of medical imaging devices that include x-ray and c-arms. Here’s the table that shows the import of entities in the parent industry –

These three countries represent a major share of 21.9% in the world’s import of the medical imaging devices such as x-rays and c-arms. Furthermore, Mexico and the US also saw growth in the import value by 4% and 7% which evinces the growing c-arms market scope in those countries.

Fixed and Mobile C-Arms Market – Global Scenario and Growth Drivers:

·                · Fixed and Mobile C-Arms Market Key Application: Healthcare -

Owing to the global surge in the number of people suffering from cardiovascular, nervous, and other diseases, there is a conspicuous rise in the requirement for diagnostic techniques and the subsequent treatment and surgeries. For instance, 17.9 million people died from CVDs in 2016, which represents 31% of global deaths. While this is a disquieting situation regarding the health scenario of the world, it’s a major driving force for the c-arms market, because these people were diagnosed through medical imaging.

Furthermore, some newly found diseases need personalized diagnostic methods, which is creating an augmented demand for the advanced medical imaging technology. With the growth in the global geriatric population coupled with the increasing requirement for diagnosis, the c-arms market demand is only going to increment.

The global spending on health is projected to attain a value of $18.28 trillion by 2040.

This figure will include the expenditure on medical imaging equipment and services, which will create opportunities for the fixed and mobile c-arms market.

As a result of the growth of the healthcare industry, the forecast period will witness an increase in the application of c-arms in the sector at a CAGR of 5.50% through to 2025.

· The Growing Endoscopy Rate Across the World Increasing Prospects for the Fixed and C-Arms Market Players –

The growth prospects for the c-arms market companies in the endoscopy segment can be gauged by the expanding endoscopy devices market, which had a size of $11.4 billion and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.43% during the forecast period 2019-2025. This growth of the endoscopy devices market will directly translate to the c-arms market because c-arms are used in endoscopy for medical imaging.
