Market Insights

Major factors driving the market growth include increasing incidence and prevalence of chronic disorders, as well as product launches and approvals.

Chronic disorders such as cardiovascular, respiratory, and orthopedic, as well as various types of cancer, are leading to disabilities and mortalities worldwide. These clinical conditions affect the overall quality of life. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 50% of the global population is estimated to suffer from at least one chronic disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that 6 out of 10 people in the US suffered from at least one chronic disease in 2019. Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) owing to hectic lifestyle are a significant cause of mortality globally. Orthopedic disorders are among the major causes of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) observed across the large geriatric population on a global level. According to the article published by SingleCare, over 350 million people globally were living with arthritis in 2021. Countries such as the US, Japan, South Korea, Canada, the UK, Spain, and France are witnessing substantial growth in the geriatric population. These economies, along with China, India, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Brazil, offer significant growth opportunities to introduce innovative devices in the global X-ray detectors market.  

A few examples of developments that have promoted the growth of the X-ray detectors market are listed below:

  • In October 2022, Rigaku Corporation, a leading manufacturer of X-ray analysis and inspection equipment, launched their new XSPA-400 ER (X-ray Seamless Pixel Array) detector to the global market following a successful domestic launch at JASIS (Japan Analytical and Scientific Instruments Show) in September 2022. The XSPA-400 ER is a seamless pixel multi-dimensional detector for X-ray diffractometers with high energy resolution suited to battery, steel, and ceramic analysis.
  • In August 2021, Rigaku Corporation, acquired all issued shares of MILabs B.V.  on August 2, 2021, as part of their full-scale effort to enter the life sciences business. Through this acquisition, Rigaku will expand its life sciences modality business globally by combining MILabs’ multi-modality businesses, including positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), optical imaging, and computed tomography (CT) equipment for animals, with Rigaku's original X-ray imaging business for animals.
  • In September 2021, Canon acquired Redlen. This acquisition will help Canon obtain advanced radiation detection and imaging technology used in CZT semiconductor detector modules, which play an important role in the development of Photon Counting CT (PCCT). This will enable Canon Medical Systems Corporation, also a subsidiary of Canon, to accelerate the development of competitive PCCT systems to strengthen the medical systems business.

Product Insights

Based on type, the X-ray detectors market is segmented into computed radiography (CR) detectors, flat-panel detectors, line-scan detectors, and charge couple device (CCD) detectors. The flat-panel detectors segment held the largest share of the market in 2021 and is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. X-ray systems many a times use indirect flat-panel detectors for the conversion of X-ray energy to light energy, which is used to generate X-ray inspection images. Flat-panel detectors are also used in digital radiography to convert X-rays to charge (direct conversion), which is then interpreted using a thin film transistor array.
