In todayâ€™s world, imaging systems are an essential technology in every hospital. Specialists in fields such as surgery, orthopedics, traumatology, vascular surgery and cardiology use C-arms for intraoperative imaging. The devices provide high-resolution X-ray images in real-time, thus allowing the physician to monitor progress at any point during the operation and immediately make necessary corrections. As a result, treatment results are better and patients recover faster.
Global C-Arms Market-Market Dynamics
As discussed above, C-Arms are currently being used in several areas of medicine and their varied applications are only expected to increase over time. These factors, coupled with the increasing demand for healthcare infrastructure in developing and third world countries, are driving the global C-Arms market. On the other hand, the growing use of refurbished devices and the low replacement rates of C-Arm systems are hindering market growth. With increasing focus on the portability of C-Arms, there is a great market opportunity for companies producing Mini C-Arms. However, the increasing cost concerns in emerging economies resulting in increasing pricing pressures are presently the greatest challenge to be overcome in order to tap the full potential of this market.
The global C-Arms market has been segmented by device type, application, and geography. By the device type, it is segmented into Fixed C-Arms and Mobile C-Arms. Mobile C-Arms are further segmented into Full-Size C-Arms and Mini C-Arms.
By application, the C-Arms market has been segmented into orthopedic, cardiovascular, pain management and trauma, neurology, gastrointestinal, urology and general surgery.
By geography, the C-Arms market has been segmented into North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico), Europe (the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain & Portugal, Scandinavia, and Benelux), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia & New Zealand, South Korea and Rest of APAC), Middle East & Africa (GCC, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, South Africa and Rest of MEA), and South America (Brazil, Argentina and Rest of Latin America). North America is the largest market share holder in the global C-Arms market with 47.2% of global market in terms of value in the year 2015.
