Based on type, the global fluoroscopy systems market is segmented as follows:

  • Fluoroscopy Devices
  • C-Arms
  • Mini C-Arms
  • Full-size C-Arms

Between fluoroscopy devices and C-arms, the fluoroscopy devices segment held over 65% of the global revenue share in 2016. The dominance of this segment is attributed to the significant range of surgical and diagnostic procedures being performed under fluoroscopic guidance. Growing applications of fluoroscopy in previously unexplored areas, such as nondestructive testing, quality assurance, and other diagnostic procedures, will create lucrative opportunities in the market. Benefits associated with the use of fluoroscopy devices, such as lesser cost, radiation sensitivity, X-ray recording, and high portability, are prominently responsible for the dominance of this segment. Advanced fluoroscopes equipped with radiation reduction features, particularly suited for cardiac interventions, have further resulted in augmented market demand. The pairing of fluoroscopy devices with spectral shaping filtering and image intensifiers is touted to further improve image-guided surgery outcomes and thus increase the adoption of fluoroscopy systems in a larger range of applications.

Based on the types of applications, the global fluoroscopy systems market is segmented as follows:

  • Cardiac Procedures
  • Orthopedic Procedures
  • Vascular and Neurological Procedures
  • Others

In the applications considered for the purpose of this study, cardiovascular procedures currently occupy the largest revenue share due to the significant prevalence of CVDs, thus contributing to a higher demand for imaging tools for diagnosis and treatment. Fluoroscopy devices' applicability in cardiovascular procedures has been expanded further by high-precision fluoroscopy systems with intense energy projections. Furthermore, growing numbers of awareness-raising activities, exhibitions, and educational conferences being held by manufacturers are also supporting the growth of this market. The use of C-arms is believed to be the highest in orthopedic procedures. Their use is most common in trauma centers, critical care units, and imaging centers, where orthopedic procedures are most frequently performed. The growing geriatric population, as well as the increased incidence of trauma and sports injuries, all contribute to the increased demand for fluoroscopy systems in orthopedics.

Based on the usage areas, the global fluoroscopy systems market is segmented as follows:

  • Hospitals and Specialty Clinics
  • Diagnostic Centers

Hospitals and specialty clinics together accounted for the largest share of the global fluoroscopy systems market. The highest patient admissions in these facilities, as well as respective readmissions, are the clear drivers contributing to this segment's dominance. The availability of required infrastructure, the greater affordability for hospitals to purchase advanced fluoroscopy and C-arm systems, and the admission of a wide range of patients eligible for the use of fluoroscopy-guided procedures all contribute to the growth of this segment. A key growth driver is the growing desire of both private and public hospitals and specialty clinics to improve healthcare efficiency and treatment outcomes. Additionally, the diagnostic center's segment will witness a higher growth rate during the forecast period, which is majorly attributed to the growing inclination of patients and healthcare providers toward early disease diagnosis and prompt monitoring for optimum disease management.

Geographically, the global fluoroscopy systems market is cumulative for North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

At present, North America accounts for the largest revenue share in the global fluoroscopy systems market.
