DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global X-Ray Detector Market (by Technology, Application, & Region): Insights and Forecast with Potential Impact of COVID-19 (2022-2027)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global x-ray detector market is poised for significant growth and is projected to reach a value of US$6.22 billion by 2023, with a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.02% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2027.
X-ray detectors, which monitor various X-ray parameters, including flux, spatial distribution, and spectrum, find applications in diverse fields such as medicine, industry, security, and veterinary care. These detectors, often made with scintillators and photomultiplier tubes, can detect the faintest flashes of light produced by individual X-ray photons.
Market growth is expected to be driven by factors such as decreasing prices, improved image quality through technological innovations, and strong financial support from venture capital firms.
By Application: The market report categorizes the x-ray detector market into four main applications: Medical, Industrial, Security, and Veterinary. The Medical segment currently holds the largest market share, driven by factors such as a growing geriatric population, increasing numbers of orthopedic, mammography, and cardiovascular procedures, and advancements in x-ray devices. Meanwhile, the Industrial segment is projected to achieve the highest CAGR in the coming years due to advancements by computed radiography vendors, who have improved digital radiography scanners, phosphor imaging plates, and software.
By Technology: X-ray detector technology is segmented into four categories: Flat panel detector, computed radiography, line scan detector, and CCD detector. The Flat panel detector segment currently dominates the market, offering advantages such as easy positioning during clinical studies, minimal geometric distortion, and no need for chemical processing. However, the CCD detector segment is expected to experience significant growth due to its high sensitivity in indirect conversion of X-ray photons into electric charge, ideal for digital radiography.
The global x-ray detector market is divided into five major regions: Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Key countries within these regions include the US, Canada, Mexico, Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, India, South Korea, and others.
North America leads the market share in the x-ray detector market, primarily due to well-developed healthcare facilities, substantial research and development investments by major players, and a rising number of medical imaging procedures. Within North America, the US remains the dominant region, driven by rapid technological advancements in the medical field, resulting in advanced x-ray detectors.
