The US X-ray system market is largely saturated, although legislative forces driving digitization in the market will drive a large wave of replacement sales in the short term. Over the forecast period, adoption of new technology—such as the shift away from II to FPD and the uptake of remote-controlled systems—will continue to transform the X-ray installed base landscape in the US health care market.  

This Medtech 360 Report provides comprehensive data and analysis on the current state of the market for X-ray systems in the US across a 10-year period.

Legislative forces are impacting the purchase of new and replacement X-ray systems in the US.

How is the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 affecting the analog and CR general radiography system markets? How has this impacted the competitive landscape for both vendors and distributors?

What will be the impact of new MACRA measures?

How are hospital and nonhospital facilities responding to these legislative actions?

Hospital consolidation has negatively impacted the number of diagnostic X-ray systems in the US.

Why are health networks discarding certain X-ray systems? What types of X-ray systems are being discarded?

How is consolidation impacting radiology department profit margins?

How has the expanding influence of GPOs impacted the competitive landscape?

FPD systems are gradually replacing II systems, although at different rates in different X-ray system segments.

What factors are driving this shift in technology? What are the benefits of FPD technology compared to II?

What segments are further along in this transition? What segments are still lagging behind? Why?

How have competitors responded?
