Bone Densitometers Market By Technology (Axial Bone Densitometry, Peripheral Bone Densitometry), By Usage Area (Hospitals And Specialty Clinics, Diagnostic Centers, Research And Academia) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

The overall market for bone densitometers, though mature in the developed parts of the world, will witness steady and consistent growth from emerging economies over the upcoming years. As the prevalence of conditions such as osteoporosis and osteogenesis imperfecta increases globally, the demand for diagnostic and monitoring equipment such as bone densitometers will correspondingly rise. Osteoporosis is a critical and the most common bone disorder, contributing to millions of bone fractures worldwide and a multi-billion dollar cost burden.

The global bone densitometer market is studied for the following technologies:

Axial Bone Densitometry

  • Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA)
  • Quantitative Computed Tomography (QCT)

Peripheral Bone Densitometry

  • Single Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (SEXA)
  • Peripheral Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA)
  • Radiographic Absorptiometry (R.A.)
  • Quantitative Ultrasound (QUS)
  • Peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT)

Between axial and peripheral bone densitometry, the latter is observed to hold the larger revenue share in the overall bone densitometer market. Better outcomes, reduced cost, and portability of these devices contribute to higher adoption of peripheral densitometers in the global market. Portable peripheral bone densitometers are opined to be cheap, easy to use, and safe, and they also augment the cost-effectiveness of DEXA selection by identifying patients that are at higher risk of osteoporosis. Peripheral bone densitometry also provides benefits by assisting in defining lifestyle and healthcare advice and playing an important role in the prevention and management of osteoporosis across all eligible patient groups.

The global bone densitometer market is studied for the following end-users:

  • Hospitals and Specialty Clinics
  • Diagnostic Centers
  • Research and academia

Due to the increasing hospitalization rate for fractures and other bone disorders, hospitals clearly dominate the end-user market for bone densitometers. Being the earliest adopters of bone densitometers and anticipating the continued trend, it is anticipated that hospitals and specialty clinics will continue to dominate the market. Furthermore, the increased demand for newer osteoporosis therapeutics has prompted an increase in the adoption of bone densitometry solutions in research and academia. It is anticipated that this segment will witness significant growth during the forecast period. Through the forecast period, the use of bone densitometers is also expected to pick up pace in diagnostic centers.Geographically, the global bone densitometers market is cumulative for North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

Bone densitometers aid in the diagnosis and prediction of fracture risk in patients with low bone density. The rise in medical tourism has fueled the steady growth of the bone densitometer market, particularly in Asia Pacific medical tourism hubs. The major areas of treatments through medical tourism are cardiovascular conditions, orthopedics, and oncology. Increased demand for bone densitometers in the Asia-Pacific market is expected due to an increase in the number of patients seeking orthopedic treatments through medical tourism. North America currently dominates the global market for bone densitometers. The advanced status of healthcare infrastructure, better reimbursement policies, and higher awareness among patients and caregivers majorly contribute to the dominance of North America in the global market.

The detailed regional classification of the global bone densitometer market is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. and Canada)
  • Europe (Germany, U.K., France, and the Rest of Europe)
  • Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific)
  • Middle East and Africa (including the Gulf Cooperation Council and the rest of the Middle East and Africa)
  • Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, and the Rest of Latin America)
