Fixed and Mobile C-arms Market USD 2,282.9 Billion in 2023

The global Fixed & Mobile C-arms market was valued at USD 2,282.9 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 2,989.8 Million by the year 2032, at a CAGR of 3.8%. C-arm in the medical sector has derived its name based on its C shaped arm. C-arm is an imaging scanner intensifier. These intensifiers convert X-rays into visible light at a greater intensity. After the intensifying effect, the viewer can see the structure of the imaged object more easily as compared to that of mere fluorescent lights.

They are used in X-rays systems to convert low-intensity X-rays into high-intensity visible light output. Though C-arms are used primarily for medical applications of fluoroscopic imaging during surgical, orthopedic, emergency care procedures, and critical care units, they exhibit characteristics of radiographic capabilities. The major market players are adopting new and innovative technologies to be used in the C-arms in order to sustain the competitive market environment and increase their customer base. For example, GE Healthcare, a major market player, introduced various programs, enhancements and customizations based on the cost, clinical dose, workflow and ergonomics. A substantial increase in the demand for c-arms is experienced owing to an increase in the geriatric population and cases of road accidents and sports injury. Additionally, other factors like growing advancements in healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors coupled increased investment in medical sector are expected to drive the demand for flexible and mobile C-arms in the market.

Fixed & mobile C-arms market projected a continuous growth based on an increase in surgical procedures, rising number of hospitals and increased need for radiology operations. In order to maintain their position in the market, the manufacturers are offering advanced features in their products. For example, the Siemens Healthineers introduced ‘Cios Connect’, a C-arm equipment that serves multiple purposes, is proven image intensifier technology and ideally suited for trauma and urology surgery. However, strict government rules on regulations imposed of manufacture of imaging devices, longer exposures of radiations emitted from the device can be harmful to the health, high price of the C-arm devices and increase in preference for Flat Panel Detectors (FDPs) is expected to be major challenges to the market. The mentioned factors are expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

Salient Trends of the Fixed & Mobile C-arms Market

  • Applications of imaging systems in surgeries like cardiovascular, urology is increasing significantly and are present in almost all well-equipped hospitals. Experts use C-arms for intraoperative images during surgeries, cardiology, vascular surgery, orthopedic, and traumatology.
