Bone Densitometer Systems Market Analysis
The bone densitometer systems market is expected to register a CAGR of 3.5% over the forecast period.
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the bone densitometer systems market significantly. The COVID-19 illness and treatment adversely affected the bone health of surviving patients, affecting the market's growth pace. According to an article published by the National Library of Medicine in April 2022, post-acute sequela of COVID-19 can cause secondary osteoporosis. To help with the early detection and treatment of osteoporosis problems, the bone health status of patients who survived COVID-19 hospitalization was extensively examined at subsequent visits. With the increased number of COVID-19 patients, the early detection of bone density and bone examination increased, leading to increased demand for bone densitometers.
The rising prevalence of osteoarthritis and vitamin deficiencies, increased adoption of bone densitometers, and technological advancements are key factors fueling the bone densitometer systems market growth. For instance, according to an article published by the Arthritis Community Research and Evaluation Unit (ACREU), in 2021 around 15% of Canadians aged 20 years and above had osteoarthritis. The report further stated that more than 4 million Canadians, or about one in every seven adults, have osteoarthritis. The high burden of such disorders is expected to boost the demand for bone densitometer systems for accurate diagnosis, ultimately driving market growth. According to a study published by Climacteric, in January 2022, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds, globally. It is estimated that osteoporosis affects 200 million women worldwide.
Additionally, the adoption of bone densitometers by various healthcare providers also contributes to the growth of the market. For instance, in June 2021, the Riverside Clinic in London, part of the Healthshare Group, chose Fujifilm's DXA Solution for the community trial to diagnose osteoporosis.
Factors such as rising prevalence of osteoarthritis and vitamin deficiencies, increased adoption of bone densitometers and technological advancements are driving the market growth for the bone densitometer systems market. However, risks associated with bone densitometers and the high cost of it may restrain the market growth.
