The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the buying capacity of hospitals, especially small-scale hospitals and scanning centers. According to an article in the Livemint, private hospitals in India have faced revenue losses of up to 90% due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has also impacted the operation of manufacturing companies.
The evolution of fluoroscopy systems and C-arms from traditional X-ray image intensifier technology to digital flat-panel detectors (FPDs) has brought about significant advancements in fluoroscopic imaging.
FPDs offer no image distortion, greater sensitivity, and better patient coverage. Due to their advantages, many hospitals are now opting for FPD fluoroscopes. The growing preference for advanced technologies, and the need to shift to new, more efficient products, will be a key factor driving the growth of this market segment.

Many hospitals in developing countries are unable to invest in fluoroscopy equipment due to their high costs, poor reimbursement rates, and budget constraints, and therefore prefer refurbished systems. These systems are less expensive than new systems—approximately 40% to 60% of the original price.
Data-integrated imaging systems enable the processing and reconstruction of images, computer-assisted recognition of medical conditions, generation of 3D images, and the use of appropriate quality control systems. These systems come with a software package that helps store patient information.
The rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and the increasing number of orthopedic surgeries are some of the major factors driving the growth of the mobile C-arms market. C-arms are used for a wide range of applications, including surgeries for cardiovascular diseases, neurosurgeries, and surgeries for gastroenterology, orthopedics, traumatology, and urology disorders.
In 2019, North America accounted for the largest share of the fluoroscopy equipment market. Factors such as the increasing incidence of overuse sports injuries, rising prevalence of CVD, and the increasing number of hip and knee replacement surgeries are driving the growth of the North American fluoroscopy equipment market.
