According to market research report, "Bone Densitometer Market by Type (DEXA, Peripheral [Radiography, Quantitative Absorptiometer]), Application (Osteopenia & Osteoporosis, Cystic Fibrosis, CKD, Rheumatoid Arthritis), End User (Hospital, Diagnostic Centres) - Global Forecast to 2024" The bone densitometers market is projected to reach USD 311 million by 2024 from USD 247 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 4.7%. The growth of the bone densitometers market is majorly driven by the increasing prevalence of osteoporosis and the rising geriatric population. However, factors such as the high cost of bone densitometers and low awareness are expected to hinder market growth.
The DXA scanners segment accounted for the largest share of the bone densitometers market in 2018. The large share of this segment can mainly be attributed to their advantages over peripheral bone densitometers, which hold a lesser share of the market.
The osteoporosis & osteopenia diagnosis segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing geriatric population and the subsequent increase in the prevalence of osteoporosis, the increasing risk of osteoporosis in menopausal women, and the growing global incidence of fragility fractures.
