Global Fluoroscopy Equipment Market - Growth, Trends & Forecasts (2017 - 2022)

The global market for fluoroscopy equipment was estimated at USD1810.5 million in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 1868.5 million by 2016. The market is projected to reach USD 2187.2 million by 2021, growing at an estimated CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period (2017 - 2022).

Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique, which unlike X-ray?s still images, produces live moving pictures of internal organs that can be viewed with the naked eye on a digital monitor. The modern fluoroscopy has come a long way since its inception and the present day fluoroscopes are equipped with high-end electronics; which run the sophisticated image analysis software and enable data storage and retrieval, with extreme ease. X-ray image intensifier is an important component of fluoroscope as it converts X-rays into visible light to generate high-quality real-time images that help in diagnosis and treatment. The X-ray image intensifier setup in a fluoroscope may or may not be built like a C-Arm, which is a kind of X-ray image intensifier setup that is used in fluoroscopes.

Currently, imaging systems are an essential part of everyday hospital life. Specialists in the fields such as surgery, orthopedics, traumatology, vascular surgery, and cardiology, use fluoroscopes for intraoperative imaging. The device provides high-resolution X-ray images in real-time, thus allowing the physician to monitor progress at any point during the operation and immediately make corrections if needed. Consequently, the treatment results are better.


A vast spectrum of applications and a high demand for healthcare infrastructure in developing and third world countries, are driving the global fluoroscopes market.


The increasing use of refurbished devices, along with low replacement rate of fluoroscopes, are hindering the growth of global fluoroscopes market.
