Digital Radiology Market Research, 2030

The global digital radiology/radiography market was valued at $3.9 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $8.3 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2021 to 2030.Digital radiology is a radiographic technique that uses X-ray sensitive plates to capture data directly while patient examination. Digital radiology is an advanced technique of X-ray inspection that produces radiographic image on a computer. Picture is replaced by sensor that collects the data in digital radiology. The digital radiology is used in medical imaging. Digital radiology is recommended as a significant choice for clinical diagnosis, owing to high-quality picture processing and less radiation exposure. Manufacturers focus on increasing qualities, including contrast, sharpness, and ability to inspect injuries in real time. Technological advancements in X-ray imaging improved diagnostic accuracy and minimized radiation dosages.


The growth of digital radiology industry is driven by surge in the frequency of chronic diseases, sports-related injuries, and cancer. Every year, many patients, particularly in underdeveloped countries undergo imaging testing. In addition, growth in population boost demand for digital radiology detectors in future and thus boosts the digital radiology market growth. Furthermore, senior citizens develop age-related disorders, necessitating use of variety of radiographic examinations is one of the major digital radiography market trends. However, high costs of these tests and scarcity of competent professionals hinder growth of the market. Furthermore, major manufacturers focus on providing new technologies to end customers, particularly for C-arms and fluoroscopy devices, which flourish the digital radiology market opportunity in future.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on January 30, 2020 declared COVID-19 as pandemic. COVID-19 impacted 210 countries across the globe. State-run administrations across the globe declared inescapable lockdowns and social distancing measures to prevent the healthcare system from collapsing, owing to COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, state governments implemented constraints and restrictions on ongoing medical procedures and elective surgeries. These restrictions continue to hinder the growth of various industries. The distribution, production, and supply networks have been impacted, due to implementation of lockdown across the globe.

Analyst Review

Direct conversion of transmitted X-ray photons into a digital image, utilizing an array of solid-state detectors, including amorphous selenium or silicon, followed by computer processing and display of the image, is known as digital radiology (DR). Mobile DR or portable DR systems are moved between rooms for imaging and are utilized for both fixed base room installations and mobile or portable DR systems. Benefits of digital X-ray equipment aided their acceptance, owing to speed, accuracy, and rapid processing times, allowing for substantially higher patient screening numbers than previously possible.

Factor such as technological developments is a critical driver in the digital radiology market's growth. Digital radiology systems are in high demand, due to factors such as image quality, acquisition time, portability, detector form, and software. Benefits such as ability to analyze massive amounts of data and evaluate patients instantly are driving demand for improved digital radiology equipment. Therefore, digital radiology equipment are more expensive and need significant upfront investments, which raises the procedure cost for patients. This has an impact on the rate at which new systems are adopted, particularly in developing nations. In addition, one of the most promising areas of health innovation is use of artificial intelligence (AI), particularly in medical imaging. In this sense, many ongoing R&D activities  aided the industry.

In addition, North America accounted for largest share of digital radiology market, followed by Europe. The large share of North America can be attributed to the surge in healthcare settings shifting from computed radiography-based X-Ray systems to direct radiography -based X-Ray systems.
