Growing prevalence of chronic disorders such as high blood pressure, kidney disease, diabetes, cancer, and others has resulted in higher diagnostic rates and related surgeries performed each year, which has increased the demand for c-arms. People with chronic disorders are also more prone to infections with opportunistic pathogens, which further increasing the demand for diagnostic devices such as c-arms.

High costs associated with c-arm machines may impede c-arm market outlook

Mobile c-arm machines are more expensive than fixed c-arms due to the higher benefits and functionalities they offer in comparison to their counterparts. Technologically advanced mobile c-arm devices that are equipped with a high generator power of over 20kW can penetrate dense anatomies, which adds to their price. Most c-arms cost upwards of USD 85,000, with associated accessories priced individually, which may hinder industry growth by limiting their adoptions to hospitals that have bigger budgets for Meditech equipment.

Based on type, the c-arm market size from mobile c-arm segment was valued at more than USD 1.7 billion in 2022. The portable nature of mobile c-arms gives these devices an added advantage over their fixed counterparts, enabling the segment to outperform the other by a significant margin. Mobile c-arm systems are highly manoeuvrable and can be freely oriented around the patient to get ideal angles for high-quality images, whilst also keeping the patient comfortable. Mobile c-arm systems are also constantly evolving through technological advancements, with components such as motorized axes, which facilitate better positioning and movement, becoming an industry mainstay.

With respect to generator power, the c-arm market share from low power segment is anticipated to grow at over 5% CAGR from 2023 to 2032. The lower radiation emissions of low power c-arms machines advocate for their use across healthcare facilities, augmenting the segment revenue. High powered c-arm machines emit harmful radiation that can affect patients, technicians, other healthcare professionals, and the environment, which greatly influences the c-arm purchasing decisions of healthcare organisations by inclining them more towards low power c-arm systems.

In terms of image intensifier, the c-arm market size from 4/6 inch c-arm segment was valued at more than USD 440 million in 2022. The lower prices of mini c-arms, in comparison to the standard-sized machines, are generating a strong demand for 4/6 inch machines, outlining the segment outlook. These machines incorporate a c-arm, console, generator, image intensifier, monitor, and tube inside a single, compact housing. This compact size reduces complexity inside operating theatres and saves precious space in the room. The mini c-arm also emits a lower amount of radiation, making them safer to operate.

For instance, in January 2022, Royal Philips, a leader in health technology, announced that it had merged cloud-based AI and 3D mapping into its mobile c-arm system series, Zenition, for enhanced endovascular treatment results and workflow efficiency. The combination of these technologies will result in the reduction of radiation exposure by 50% and shorten the process time by over 20%.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

C-arm machines are typically used in computer-assisted surgeries, of which the majority are elective, and were delayed to manage the COVID-19 patient load. According to a study, nearly 28.4 million elective surgeries were rescheduled or postponed globally in 2020. Hospitals were more focused on buying ventilators and other COVID-19 treatment devices, with less capital going towards other equipment.

However, c-arms played a major role in fighting the pandemic as they were often used on COVID-19 patients who required surgical intervention to live. In fact, the European Association of Urology also rolled out guidelines mandating the establishment of a specially furnished operating room with mobile c-arm fluoroscopic X-ray devices for healthcare personnel and radiology for COVID-19 patients who need surgery.
