Global Bone Densitometers Market - Overview

The global bone densitometers market is growing mainly due to the rising prevalence of osteoporosis in menopausal women. According to a recent study report published by the Market Research Future, the global bone densitometers market is booming and expected to gain prominence over the forecast period. The market is forecasted to demonstrate a spectacular growth by 2022, surpassing its previous growth records in terms of value with a striking CAGR during the anticipated period (2017 – 2022).

Bone densitometry is a type of non-invasive technology which is used to measure bone mass. This technology measures the amount of loss of bone mass in a patient’s body. Bone mass is the weight of the skeleton, overall or in specific regions. Bone densitometry, known as dual energy X-ray absorptiometry or DXA, is a test that calculates bone density accurately. Osteopenia, and osteoporosis generally cause the bone to lose minerals and density, which escalates the possibility of fractures. This test is often recommended after an age of 60, but it can be prescribed earlier in cases if reduced bone density is suspected. DEXA is found to be the standard approach for calculating bone mineral density.

Notably, rising geriatric population is the key factor driving the bone densitometers market. Aging can be defined as the decline in functionality of multiple organ system and the geriatric population represents a greater variation in health and diseases in comparison to other population group. According to WHO, it is estimated that the world’s population aged 60 years and older will nearly double from 12% to 22% by 2050. In U.S, more specifically, more than 20% of the total population will be aged 65 years or over by 2030.

Other factors such as, rising prevalence of osteoporosis, huge funding for research & development, high adoption rate, technological advancements, and rising approval from regulatory bodies are also fuelling the bone densitometers market growth. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, worldwide. It is also reported that osteoporosis is estimated to affect 200 million women i.e. approximately one-fifth of women aged 70, one-tenth of women aged 60, two-thirds of women aged 90, and two-fifths of women aged 80.

Despite these drivers, lack of awareness, and safety concerns are expected to decline the bone densitometers market growth.
