Market Overview

The South America C-Arms Market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 2.8% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the market include rising geriatric population and increasing incidence of chronic diseases and advancements in maneuverability and imaging capabilities.

C-arms are being increasingly used by healthcare professionals to provide live image guidance in trauma, orthopedic and vascular procedures. The devices provide high-resolution X-ray images in real-time, which helps physicians to monitor progress at any point during the operation and immediately make necessary corrections.

According to the Alzheimer Disease International, in 2016, approximately 500,000 people lived with dementia in Argentina, and this number was projected to increase to 1.2 million by 2050.

Key Market Trends

The Mini C-Arm Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth over the Forecast period

With an increasing focus on the portability of C-arms, there is a significant market opportunity for companies producing mini C-arms. Several mini c-arms are designed explicitly for extremity imaging and have a smaller footprint, along with increased mobility compared to the full-size c-arms. The market players are increasing efforts to develop adaptable platforms that fulfill the needs of healthcare providers for various surgical specialties. For instance, in February 2019, lPhilips announced the launch of Zenition mobile C-arm platform that contributes toward innovations in image capture and image processing.

According to the World Population Ageing 2019 report, in Argentina population aged 65 years or over in 2019 was 5,035 (11.2%) and this number is projected to reach to 6,249 (12.7%) in 2030. As the number of elderly population is expected to grow in coming years and elderly population are more prone to chronic diseases which ultimately drives the market in future. Adding to that, rising geriatric pouplation and increasing incidence of chronic disease, the market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.
