The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global fluoroscopy C-arms market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the revenue generated from the sales of fluoroscopy C-arms is considered.
The combination of radiography and fluoroscopy with C-arm devices is the next big technological investment, which provides effective management in terms of sensitive pricing in multiple indications. Growing usage of C-arm devices in pain management across healthcare centers is leading to the growing demand for these devices. The refurbished device manufacturers are penetrating the market, considering the price of refurbished devices is 20%-30% lower than the price of the original device.

Technavio healthcare and life sciences analysts highlight the following four factors that are contributing to the growth of the global fluoroscopy C-arms market:
- MIS involving C-arm devices
- Growing focus on pain management
- Technological advances easing diagnostic procedures
- Focus on treatment measures for elderly population and other diagnostic areas
MIS involving C-arm devices
According to Srinivas Sashidhar, a lead medical imaging analyst from Technavio, “The prominence of MIS among patients and surgeons is increasing globally as this type of surgery saves time and reduces cost. The additional benefits could be less painful and scarring to the patient with minimal blood loss, further leading to quick healing.”
During the internal surgical procedures, limited visibility compels doctors to use fluoroscopy in monitoring the body area being operated. The wide usage of C-arms among doctors is to visualize real-time images of internal organs for guiding their actions during surgery.
Growing focus on pain management
Pain management in healthcare is characterized by the usage of drugs such as analgesics and anxiolytics, to ease the pain. Intervention equipment such as fluoroscopy and tomography is required to analyze the intensity of pain in individuals suffering from chronic pain. Healthcare institutions use fluoroscopy for precise diagnosis and treatment of pain. Most pain management centers use mobile C-arms for diagnosis. At times, medication is precisely injected into a painful area using fluoroscopy, a technique used in invasive pain management.
The major applications of fluoroscopy in pain management are:
- Identification of pain-generating structures
- Guidance for the injection of medications
- Prediction of surgical intervention results
Technological advances easing diagnostic procedures
Advances in technology and upgradation in equipment determine the demand and usage of any medical device. In the field of medical imaging, new products with improved features and parameters are preferred by end-users worldwide. The latest fluoroscopy systems are equipped with high-quality image intensifiers and spectral shaping filters to obtain high-clarity images.
“Radiation-reduction devices are attached to existing fluoroscopy systems to make them safe for use, by radiologists and other surgeons. Also, the upgrading of the systems by installing inverter generators with medium frequency, enables high-performance switching capability in fluoroscopy devices,” adds Srinivas.
Focus on treatment measures for elderly population and other diagnostic areas
The growing geriatric population provides huge opportunities for healthcare providers to increase their market share. Currently, the geriatric population accounts for 16.4% of the total global population, and this is expected to increase to 18.7% by 2020. Many people worldwide are above 65 years of age, because of the decreased mortality rate and wider use of birth control measures.
The geriatric people are more prone to chronic diseases, so an increase in the aging population leads to a higher prevalence of various diseases. Therefore, the demand for fluoroscopy procedures, which are used to diagnose diseases has increased. Also, the growing number of surgical procedures for age-related problems has resulted in the increased usage of mobile C-arm equipment.
