Global Bone Densitometer Market- Overview

A bone densitometer is a device which is an extended form of x-ray technology and is primarily used for measuring bone density. This device is primarily used to diagnose and track osteoporosis, a serious bone disease. This method measures bone mineral density to identify a fracture site with a lower mass than normal. Moreover, Bone densitometers are highly accurate and precise, which is why they are popular in healthcare facilities for various applications, such as detecting fracture risk and monitoring bone loss.

Global Bone Densitometer Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Prevalence of Osteoporosis

Increased prevalence of osteoporosis among older adults or post-menopausal women is significantly influencing the global market for bone densitometers. Because the bones are so weak, even a minor shock-like cough can cause a fracture, and most often there are no symptoms at all.  As a result, regular health check-up of bone to assess its density is often recommended. It has been estimated that more than 200 million people worldwide suffer from osteoporosis. Because of this factor, the global bone densitometer market is projected to gain significant traction in the forecast period.                                                                              

Technological Advancements in The Bone Densitometer

The innovation of bone densitometers for assessing bone density has assisted significantly in the diagnosis and monitoring of osteoporosis and the overall bone imaging field. The further developments in the bone densitometer have also expanded its capabilities in determining the differences in body minerals, fat tissue, and lean tissue, due to which its popularity and demand as a body composition tool has surged. The advancements from the pencil beam densitometers to the latest narrow fan beam densitometers are now offering faster scan time and better resolution.

Restraints

High Cost of Bone Densitometer

A bone densitometer of high-quality costs around USD 30,000. The high cost of bone densitometers may become a reason for hampering the growth of the market. The non-availability of sufficient reimbursement policies further restricts the market because of which many healthcare facilities resort to leasing or refurbished bone densitometers, which in turn affects the market revenue of the device manufacturers negatively. Furthermore, limited awareness regarding this device and its use, especially in developing countries further hampers the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Bone Densitometer Market

COVID-19 and the pandemic situation affected the entire healthcare system in positive and negative ways. COVID-19 has had a severe impact on the global bone densitometer market. The number of DXA examinations declined significantly after the countries imposed a nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of the virus. The hospital facilities also set up certain social-distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of the patients and the staff. Furthermore, the outpatient activities were mostly on hold to ensure that the healthcare professionals were available exclusively for the COVID-19 patients. According to estimates, the revival of the bone densitometer market will be a slow process in the post-COVID-19 period.

Global Bone Densitometer Market - By Type

Based on type, the global bone densitometer market is categorized into dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry scanners and peripheral bone densitometers. The dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry segment accounts for the largest market share. This type of scanner is used for measuring bone mineral density using spectral imaging. This scanner is primarily used for osteoporosis tests. That is why its demand is very high in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Furthermore, since the results garnered by the dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry scanners are highly accurate, the demand for this segment is rising significantly.

Global Bone Densitometer Market - By Application
