Research and Markets: 2D X-Ray Equipment: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2015 to 2021

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/425rfg/2d_xray) has announced the addition of Wintergreen Research, Inc's new report "2D X-Ray Equipment: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2015 to 2021" to their offering.

Consideration of the 2-D X-Ray market forecasts indicates that markets at $5 billion in 2014 will reach $16.9 billion by 2021

Worldwide 2-D X-Ray equipment markets are increasingly diversified, poised to achieve significant growth as new technology breathes new life into a saturated market, forcing every facility to upgrade its existing x-ray equipment to have digital and therapeutic capability.

Any hospital that wishes to remain competitive needs to invest in new 2-D x-ray equipment. As patients become more conscious of the risks associated with radiation doses. They increasingly demand the lowest dose available and will shop around until they find a hospital that suits their needs. Clinicians and providers are the same way.

Worldwide digital X-ray applications are implemented with different technologies. Portability has become a major market factor. Products are customized to fit the needs of the clinician end user. Price and geography play a major part in the market. They are positioned in the market by application. Growth is anticipated based on technological advances, government investment, aging population, increase in disease prevalence, and the increasing competition from larger numbers of systems being approved. X-Ray technology is far less expensive and results in as much as 400 times less dosage to the patient than a CT scan.

Growth comes as the aging of the population increases demand for diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, as the major underdeveloped regions, particularly China build out improved health care facilities, and as improved diagnostics and therapeutics available from the 2-D x-ray equipment create increased demand from clinicians for modern equipment.
