C-Arms Market Analysis

The C-arms market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.96% over the forecast period.

COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on the C-arms market initially. C-arms are used in image-guided procedures that are mostly elective, which were postponed due to COVID-19. According to the NCBI, in 2020, the European Association of Urology guidelines stated that while handling COVID-19-positive patients needing surgery, a specially equipped operating room needed to be designed, where a mobile C-arm fluoroscopic X-ray system for radiology and healthcare professionals as needed for operating. Thus, the COVID-19 outbreak affected the market's growth adversely in its preliminary phase; however, the market is expected to gain traction due to the significant increase in the use of C-arms globally.

Further, the rising geriatric population and increasing incidence of chronic diseases, and advancements in maneuverability and imaging capabilities, and rising demand in emerging economies for imaging technologies are among the major factors driving the growth of the studied market

Imaging systems are becoming an essential technology found in nearly all well-equipped hospitals. Specialists in surgery, orthopedics, traumatology, vascular surgery, and cardiology use C-arms for intraoperative imaging. The devices provide high-resolution X-ray images in real-time, which help physicians monitor progress at any point during the operation and immediately make necessary corrections. As a result, treatment results are better, with faster recovery. C-arms are currently being used in several areas of medicine, and their applications are expected to increase over time. These factors, along with the increasing demand for healthcare infrastructure in developing countries, are driving the C-arms market.

Further, according to the National Cancer Institute (NIH), in 2022, the estimated number of new cancer cases was around 1,918,030 in the United States. Hence, the increasing incidence of cancer is elevating the need for various imaging devices such as C-arms in order to treat cancer patients, therefore such factors or is elevating the growth of the C-arms market.

As per the World Health Organization, in 2022, it has been stated that 1 in 6 people in the world will be aged 60 and over by 2030 which will be 1.4 billion. Thereby, the high number of the aging population is going to increase the prevalence of diseases that require imaging devices such as the C-arms. Hence, such factors are elevating the growth of the market.

Similarly, according to the same source mentioned above it has been stated that by 2050 the world’s population of people aged 60 years and older will double to 2.1 billion. Hence, during the upcoming years this will drive the C-arms market growth.

Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors the studied market is anticipated to witness growth over the analysis period. However, high procedural and equipment costs and growing use of refurbished devices is likely to impede the market growth.

C-Arms Market Trends

Mini C-arm Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth During the Forecast Period

Mini C-arms are designed explicitly for extremity imaging. They have a smaller footprint and increased mobility compared to full-size C-arms. The mini C-arm category varies significantly in size and cost depending upon the functionalities offered. Manufacturers are differentiating their products based on mobility, the field of view, and alternate imaging technologies. The factors driving the growth of the segment include increasing usage of mini C-arms due to their portability, increasing product developments, and rising product approvals are among the major factors elevating the market growth.

The mini C-arms segment is expected to witness several product launches during the forecast period, as companies are upgrading their product offerings at a fast pace. For instance, in November 2021, Fujifilm launched the new Persona CS mobile fluoroscopy system, the compact mobile C-arm imaging solution designed for rapid and seamless positioning in the operating room 

Moreover, in June 2021, Turner Imaging Systems, a developer of advanced X-ray imaging systems, stated that the company received its CE Mark for its Smart-C Mini C-Arm portable fluoroscopy X-ray imaging device. This will allow the Smart-C portable mini c-arm, to be distributed throughout the EU countries as well as the UK. Thereby, such product approvals is going to elevate the growth of the segment.

Additionally, in April 2021, Ziehm Imaging and Carestream Health stated that they have added a new mobile C-arm into its growing innovative product portfolio, known as the Ziehm Vision RFD C-arm, this surgical imaging system will further enhance Carestream’s mobile and fluoroscopic product offerings to benefit even more healthcare providers. Thereby, such product developments are increasing the segment growth, hence elevating the market growth.

Therefore, the mini C-arms segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period due to the abovementioned factors

North America Held the Healthy Share in the Market Studied

North America is expected to hold a significant growth in the market owing to factors such as high standards of healthcare infrastructure in the United States, along with the high frequency of diagnostic examinations, the rising geriatric population, and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in the country are among the key factors which contribute to the growth of the studied market in North America.

Moreover, according to the World Health Organization, in 2021, cardiovascular diseases are a leading cause of death globally. Hence, there is a higher requirement for treating CVD patients by conducting various imaging procedures in order to carry out surgeries so that they can overcome the disease. Hence this is leading to market growth.

Additionally, as per the Census Bureau estimates, the geriatric population (65 years or older) in the United States is expected to reach 94 million by 2060. The increasing geriatric population is expected to increase the number of surgeries, thus boosting the overall market.

The increasing trend of new product approvals and launches, along with the development of advanced technologies, plays a vital role in the growth of the C-arms market in the region. For instance, In December 2022, MINICARM.COM a medical device company expanded its United States warehouse with its high quality Mini C-Arm refurbishment center. The mini C-Arms are used for fluoroscopic imaging of the extremities in orthopedic surgery and digital diagnostic imaging.

Therefore, owing to the aforesaid factors the growth of the studied market is anticipated in the North America region.
