Bone Densitometers Market Size, Share, Dynamics
And Future Growth Report 2025
The market size of global bone densitometers was worth USD 893.7 million in the year 2016 and is predicted to grow
with a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period. The significant increase in prevalence of osteoporosis on global level is
the major driving force. This has led to an upsurge in demand for efficient assessment with the use of bone
densitometers. In addition, the increase in geriatric population base, which is more susceptible to metabolic bone
diseases, is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities.
The rise in osteoporosis incidence in menopausal women is anticipated to be a key growth contributor. According to
International osteoporosis foundation, over 200 million females are suffering from this disease globally with 1/10th
belonging to 60 years, 2/5th in 80 years’ group, 1/5th in 70 years and 2/3rd in 90 years’ age group. Moreover, every 1
out of 3 women above the age of 50 years were seen to suffer from fragility fractures once in their lifetime.
According to a report published by National Institutes of Health Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases, various
lifestyle-related factors including smoking, alcohol abuse and sedentary lifestyle are major contributors for development
of osteoporosis in males. The above mentioned factors provide a clinical urgency to reduce this disease burden and
hence fuel the rate of adoption of these assessment devices to suffice early diagnosis.
Additionally, advent of technologically advanced products such as ultrasound & computer assisted densitometers and
integrated digital detectors cater to the needs of technicians and physicians by reducing measurement time and
facilitating easy operations. The use of ultrasound based densitometers has increased to wide range of fields including
endocrinology, gynecology and various others.
