Global Bone Densitometer Market to Grow at 5.1% During 2021-2026, Bolstered by Technological Advancements

Published on Jul 12, 2021

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Bone Densitometer Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” finds that the global bone densitometer market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. A bone densitometer measures bone density and body composition, such as body fat and muscle mass. It also provides helpful details about the risk for osteoporosis (bone loss) and fractures (bone breaks). Bone densitometers emit a thin, invisible beam of low-dose X-rays across the bones being scanned, with two different energy peaks. The soft tissue absorbs the first peak, while the bone absorbs the second to measure bone loss and the amount of calcium and other minerals in a bone segment. With changing lifestyle habits, including sedentary behavior, alcohol abuse, and smoking, there has been an increase in the prevalence of chronic health issues. This, in turn, has boosted the adoption of bone densitometers across the globe.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Bone Densitometer Market Trends:

The global bone densitometer market is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of osteoporosis, especially among the geriatric population. Bone densitometers aid in assessing an individual’s risk for developing osteoporotic fractures. Furthermore, governments of various nations are also undertaking several initiatives to promote advanced diagnostic instruments, such as bone densitometers, across healthcare organizations. Apart from this, several technological advancements have led to the advent of computer-assisted and ultrasound densitometers, thereby enabling assessment in diverse medical specialties, such as gynecology and endocrinology. Moreover, the ongoing research and development (R&D) activities to develop advanced devices, increasing medical tourism to treat osteopathic diseases, and rapid improvement in the healthcare infrastructure are some of the other factors that are expected to escalate the demand for bone densitometers. Looking forward, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
