According to latest publication from Meticulous Research, global x-ray detectors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period to reach USD 3,887.3 million by 2024.
Owing to the growing aging population and resulting medical conditions, the demand for various diagnostic modalities including X-ray systems is increasing across the globe. The growing demand for X-ray systems is also driving the growth of its component systems such as X-ray detectors. Since long, X-ray images are captured on analog films or computed radiography (CR) plates. It takes long time to capture images through these systems. As the prevalence of various chronic and infectious diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular, orthopedic, and bacterial and viral diseases is rapidly growing across the globe, the healthcare facilities are increasingly experiencing the rising burden of patients visiting the hospitals suffering from such diseases.
