Research and Markets: Global Bone Densitometers Market & Forecasts Report 2013-2019 - DEXA, QCT, pDEXA, SEXA, pQCT, RA and QUS

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Bone Densitometers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.

The bone densitometers market though highly mature in developed countries of the U.S. and Europe, is expected to witness impressive growth in Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World regions due to the rising prevalence of osteoporosis. Consequently, there is an increasing interest in bone density measurement.

This report studies the global market for bone densitometers from two major perspectives. The market is segmented on the basis of technologies, and end-users. Technologies segment is further classified into sub-segments, axial and peripheral bone densitometers. The end users studied in this report include clinics and hospitals. Each of the segments has been analysed on the basis of its current and future market size for the period 2011 to 2019, in terms of revenue generation in USD million, considering 2011 and 2012 as the base years.

Bone densitoeter devices allow non-invasive, quantitative measurement of bone mass or density. Presently, the demand for bone densitometers is high and is continuously rising as it caters to the needs of the growing elderly population and the high incidence rates of osteoporosis and various associated fractures. Various methods available for measuring bone mineral density and strength use ionizing radiation or ultrasound. The preferred sites of bone density measurement are axial/central skeleton (hip and spine) or peripheral skeleton (forearm, wrist, heel, phalanges).

At present a broad range of bone densitometers along with number of technologies are available in the market for bone density measurement. The most accurate and widely accepted technique is axial/central dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), while axial/central and peripheral quantitative computed tomography (QCT) are the only current methods which provide an actual volumetric measurement of bone mass. Axial DEXA bone densitometers form the largest segment,in the total market, owing to their improved accuracy and precision and wide acceptance by the end users. Need for trained professionals and high cost as well as huge device size leads to lowering the adoption of axial DEXA systems, particularly in financially lagged countries. Thus growing preference for cost containment measures as well as introduction of portable devices along with increase in awareness for disease diagnosis will together aid in sustaining the growing acceptance of bone densitometers worldwide.
