Bone densitometers are devices used for non-invasive measurement of bone mineral density in order to determine an individual’s bone health. This device has an essential role in the evaluation of patients at risk of osteoporosis and fracture. There are two types of bone densitometer devices available in the market viz. Axial Bone Densitometer and Peripheral Bone Densitometer. Several methods are available to measure bone density, but currently the most accurate and widely used technique is DXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry).
Market Value and Forecast
Global Bone Densitometer Devices market revenues are projected to expand at a CAGR of 3.5 % during the forecast period 2016-2026 and reach a value of US$ 390.6 Mn by the end of 2026.
The primary factors fuelling demand for Bone Densitometer Devices are increasing prevalence of osteoporosis, improving life expectancy of people, rising geriatric population, and development of advanced bone densitometer devices.
However, primary factors hampering the growth of bone densitometer devices market are adoption of refurbished devices and limitation of DXA technology.
