Dublin, June 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Orthopedic Imaging Equipment Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By End-use (Hospitals, Diagnostic Imaging Centers, and Others), By Modality, By Indication, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2024 - 2031" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Orthopedic Imaging Equipment Market is expected to reach $7.5 billion by 2031, rising at a market growth of 5.7% CAGR during the forecast period.

Patient and healthcare provider preferences for less invasive treatment alternatives are propelling the growing popularity of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), which constitutes a substantial segment of the market.

Additionally, the elderly population is increasing dangerously quickly in every nation on Earth. Its population is projected to reach approximately 1.5 billion people by 2050. Seniors are expected to make up 16% of the world's population by 2050. Thus, the growing geriatric population drives the demand for it by increasing the prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions and age-related injuries.

The high cost of procuring and maintaining equipment is a significant restraint within the orthopedic imaging equipment market. Orthopedic imaging technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and advanced X-ray systems, involve substantial initial capital investments for healthcare facilities. Hence, all these factors may hamper the growth of the market.

Athletic-related harm comprises an extensive spectrum of musculoskeletal disorders, such as dislocations of joints, strains of ligaments and muscles, tears of tendons, and fractures. Thus, the sport injuries segment captured 13.3% revenue share in the market 2023. Athletic activities, by their inherently high-impact and physically taxing characteristics, render athletes vulnerable to sports-related injuries across the board, encompassing both recreational enthusiasts and professional athletes.

End Use Analysis

By end-use, the market is fragmented into hospitals, diagnostic imaging centers, and others. The hospitals segment procured 47.7% revenue share in the market in 2023. The hospital segment is a vital component of the market, representing healthcare facilities that provide comprehensive orthopedic care to patients.

Modality Analysis

Based on modality, the market is characterized into X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, and nuclear imaging. In 2023, the MRI segment recorded 21.5% revenue share in the market. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a critical component of musculoskeletal diagnostics, offering detailed visualization of soft tissues, joints, and bones.

Indication Analysis

On the basis of indication, the market is classified into trauma cases, sport injuries, spinal injuries, arthritis, bone disorders, musculoskeletal cancer, muscle atrophy, and others. The spinal injuries segment procured 19.3% revenue share in the market in 2023. In spinal injuries, timely and accurate diagnosis is crucial for initiating appropriate treatment and preventing further neurological compromise.

Regional Analysis

Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and LAMEA. The Asia Pacific segment garnered 28.3% growth rate in market in 2023. Along with its rapidly expanding population, the Asia-Pacific region also has a sizeable elderly demographic.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Firstly, the resumption of elective procedures and imaging exams contributed to increased demand for this, as patients sought diagnosis and treatment for musculoskeletal conditions that had been deferred during the height of the pandemic. Secondly, the adoption of telemedicine and remote imaging services surged during the pandemic, driving the demand for portable and mobile imaging devices that could be used in home-based or remote healthcare settings. Thus, the pandemic had an overall positive impact on the market.
