C-Arm Market Research, 2031

The global c-arms market size was valued at $2,003.12 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $3,233.76 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2022 to 2031. C-Arm is a medical imaging device that is based on X-ray technology and can be used flexibly in various operation rooms within a clinic. The name is derived from the C-shaped arm used to connect the X-ray source and X-ray detector to one another. C-Arms comprises a generator called X-Ray source and an image intensifier for a flat panel detector. It is often used in surgery, orthopedics, traumatology, vascular surgery, and cardiology for intra-operative imaging. The device provides high-resolution X-ray images in real time, allowing the surgeon to monitor progress at any point during the surgery.

Market dynamics 

The increase in the prevalence of chronic disease due to changing lifestyles such as heart diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory diseases, and others cause mortality and morbidity across the world, rising number of surgical procedures, and an increasing demand for technologically advanced medical devices are the major factors driving the growth of the C-arms market share. For instance, according to the report published by World Health Organization in September 2022, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) kill 41 million people each year, equivalent to 74% of all deaths globally. Each year, 17 million people die from NCD before age 70; 86% of these premature deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries of all NCD deaths, 77% are in low- and middle-income countries. In addition, cardiovascular diseases account for most NCD deaths, or 17.9 million people annually, followed by cancers (9.3 million), chronic respiratory diseases (4.1 million), and diabetes (2.0 million including kidney disease deaths caused by diabetes). Moreover, the rise in technological advancements in C-arms, such as improved imaging resolution and image intensifier tubes, are expected to fuel the C-arms market growth. These advancements have enabled C-arms to be used for a variety of purposes, including vascular surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, and tumor treatment. For instance, in June 2022, Siemens AG, launched its new, ceiling-mounted Artis icono ceiling angiography system. It provides three-dimensional (3D) data both at the patient’s head and from the patient’s side over a complete angular range of 200 degrees. The demand for C-arms devices is not only limited to developed countries, but is also being witnessed in developing countries, owing to the rapid increase in geriatric populations of countries such as China, Brazil, and India, which fuel the growth of the market. 

However, the high cost of C-arms devices and lack of skilled professional hampers the C-arms market size. As it can limit the number of potential buyers and restrict the ability of hospitals and diagnostic clinics to acquire the latest technology. This can lead to a decrease in the adoption of technologically advanced diagnostic devices in clinics and hospitals, resulting in a decrease in the quality of X-ray images. Emerging economies such as India, China, Mexico, and Brazil, are anticipated to create new opportunities during the forecast period owing to the rise in geriatric population and increase in interest in minimally invasive surgeries as there are minimal stitches on the body and rapid increase in the number of chronic diseases.
