Mobile C-arms are being increasingly used by healthcare professionals to provide live image guidance in orthopedic, trauma, and vascular procedures. Companies are increasing R&D to increase ease-of-use and versatility in C-arms in order to gain improved outcomes. Mobile C-arms are in high demand at hospitals that are aiming at maximizing OR performance and enhance user experience.

IVUS and Intuitive Interface Hold Potential in Image-guided Minimally Invasive Surgery

Companies in the C-arms market are introducing innovative C-arm series that are suited for surgical needs. As such, ortho/trauma/spine surgeries and cardiac surgeries application segments of the C-arms market are anticipated for exponential growth, and the global market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period. Companies are tapping opportunities in urology, critical care, and pain management. Improved C-arms are being introduced with reliable flat panel detectors and high-resolution image intensifiers to create outstanding image clarity.

Manufacturers are increasing R&D in table side user interface so that clinicians can operate C-arms inside sterile fields. Thus, clinicians are increasingly benefitting from this new interface, which has reduced communication burden on the operator, hence making C-arms more intuitive. Novel C-arm platforms are being integrated with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) useful in peripheral vascular procedures. Such innovations are helping healthcare companies to bolster their credibility credentials on a global level. Complexity of surgical interventions in the ever-evolving area of image-guided minimally invasive surgery is one of the key drivers for market growth.

Next-gen Mini C-arms with Orbital Rotation to Enable Users to View Critical Anatomy

The mini C-arm technology is being increasing adopted by clinicians for the treatment of pediatric patients. For instance, global leader in mini C-arm imaging, Orthoscan, announced the launch of first-of-its-kind Orthoscan TAU family of innovative mini C-arms. Companies in the C-arms market are increasing efforts to gain approval from health commissions so that clinicians can enhance quality-of-life in pediatric patients.

Next-gen mini C-arms are equipped with novel dose-saving features and advanced touch interface. Companies are increasing R&D to develop C-arms that provide efficient articulation. They are tapping revenue opportunities with the introduction of flat bottom C-arm design, which is lightweight and designed to meet specific budgets of healthcare providers. Larger detector and live imaging is helping users to freely analyze critical anatomy. Moreover, flat panel detector is estimated for exponential growth in the C-arms market. Intelligent dose reduction is another key driver contributing toward market growth. Enhanced orbital rotation helps users to reduce stress in viewing the anatomy.

3D Geometries Help Companies to Overcome Limitations of Dead Spots and Artifacts

The C-arms market is largely consolidated with major players accounting for ~20%-40% of the total market stake. Thus, emerging players are left with only a small opportunity to gain market dominance. However, major and emerging players alike need to overcome the limitations of cone-beam artifacts. Hence, companies are integrating robotics in C-arms to overcome barriers of cone-beam artifacts. For instance, Siemens Healthineers-a leading medical technology company has introduced robotics in C-arms to capture complicated paths around the patient.

Companies in the C-arms market are offering fund grants to research labs in order to explore different trajectories in complicated paths around patients. They are increasing focus on 3D imaging to alleviate the problem of dead spots and artifacts. Thus, research labs are combining the concepts of trigonometry, geometry, and advanced calculus to offer enhanced imaging of patients.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

IVUS is gaining prominence as a catheter-based imaging technology that enable clinicians to visualize blood vessels from inside out, thus aiding in the treatment of peripheral vascular and coronary patients. Large detectors and high-resolution diagnostic touchscreen monitors are setting the standard for C-arm platforms.

Moreover, companies are leveraging opportunities in North America and Asia Pacific, since the C-arms market in both regions is projected for exponential growth. However, barriers such as higher doses of radiation in large detectors pose as a challenge for companies. Hence, companies should collaborate with research labs to increase R&D in robotic and ideal acquisition geometry to overcome issues of high doses of radiation in large detectors.

C-arms Market: Overview

The global C-arms market for the historical period 2017–2018 and forecast period 2019–2027, high prevalence and increase in incidence of acute and chronic disorders across the world are anticipated to drive the global C-arms market

According to the report, the global C-arms market was valued at US$ 1.8 Bn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2019 to 2027

High Prevalence and Increase in Incidence of Acute and Chronic Disorders to Propel Market: A Key Driver

A large number of individuals suffer from infectious as well as chronic diseases. Cardiovascular and respiratory diseases have affected a large number of individuals globally and are the leading cause of death. Cardiovascular diseases cause majority of the deaths across the world.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases (CVD) account for an estimated 17.9 deaths each year. This has increased the number of minimally-invasive interventional procedures such as angiography, angioplasty, and electrical cardioversion. These procedures require the use of a medical C-arm that can help clinicians in tracking the procedure in real time.

X-ray has been the most preferred technique among healthcare professionals as well as hospitals for effective diagnosis and treatment of a disease. Most modern X-ray machines provide essential and accurate diagnostic results in majority of diseases.

Hence, high prevalence and increase in incidence of several diseases/disorders across the world are projected to boost the growth of the global C-arms market during the forecast period

Technological Advancements

The global X-ray sector is responding positively to the new and improved C-arm systems or machines, with increase in uptake of technologically advanced C-arms. Moreover, digital C-arm systems are comparatively newer than analog C-arm systems, and have been able to make inroads into the C-arms market to become a market leader.

Presently, various new and technologically advanced C-arm systems have been introduced in the global market by major manufacturers. These include Ziehm’s Vision RFD, Siemens’ ARCADIS Orbic 3D developed for advanced spine and neuro work, and Phillips’ second-generation Veradius Neo which features a new C-arc geometry with maneuverability specially designed to accommodate even obese patients.

High Cost of Advanced Systems to Hamper C-arms Market

The global C-arms market generates most of the revenue from developed countries such as the U.S., Japan, and major countries in Western Europe such as Germany, the U.K., and France. This is due to the high cost of various newly developed advanced portable digital C-arm machines that are currently available in the global market and the corresponding affordability by the mentioned regional markets. Less developed markets in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Africa still largely depend on various traditional stationary systems and refurbished C-arms due to high cost of newer C-arms. This is likely to restrain the global C-arms market.
