Technological Advancements in X-ray Detectors to Propel Global Market
Technological advancements are likely to create a paradigm shift in the global X-ray detectors market through the introduction of innovative X-ray detectors for medical, security, industrial, veterinary, dental, and other applications. Various companies have launched innovative products and expand product offerings. This is projected to drive the global X-ray detectors market during the forecast period.
Software update and new resin profiles are recent advancements in X-ray detector product offerings. In March 2021, Carestream Health launched its first cesium glass-free medical detector in the market. The CARESTREAM Lux 35 Detector is a lightweight, glass-free wireless detector ergonomically designed with the comfort of patients and radiographers in mind. The cesium detector offers high resolution, better detail, and reduced exposure dose compared to gadolinium detectors.
In January 2021, Varex Imaging Corporation announced addition of LUMEN 4336W digital radiography detector to its product portfolio. This new product is an addition to LUMEN 4343W, part of new generation of detector, which increases the durability and convenience for the customers.
X-ray Detectors Market: Prominent Regions
North America dominated the global X-ray detectors market in 2020, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. Rise in patient burden, availability of innovative products, technological advancements, and presence of key players providing X-ray detectors and other imaging technologies are anticipated to propel the market during the forecast period. According to the reaDentist.org, the U.S. had over 200,000 practicing dentists as of 2018. Hence, increase in the number of dentists and patients visiting dental clinics and labs is anticipated to drive the market in North America during the forecast period.
The X-ray detectors market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a higher CAGR from 2021 to 2031. Growing medical tourism, increasing incidences of breast cancer, and rising awareness about early and non-invasive diagnosis of breast cancer in Asia are leading to a rise in the number of women in the region aged 40 years or above undergoing mammography scans. This fuels the demand for advanced X-ray flat panel detectors in Asia Pacific.
