DUBLIN, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pw67sw/xray_market) has announced the addition of the "X-Ray Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2022" report to their offering.
North America held the largest share of 34.6% of the global X-ray market in 2013, followed by Asia Pacific and Europe. North America comprises the developed economies of the U.S. and Canada that have a large number of elderly individuals suffering from various cardiovascular, orthopedic, genitourinary, and abdominal diseases and disorders.
Hence, rising occurrence of various disorders along with high awareness and affordability among people and well established health care infrastructure in the region increases demand for advanced X-ray systems. However, Asia Pacific is expected to register the fastest growth during the forecast period from 2014 to 2022 due to rapid growth expectation of this market in countries such as China and India.
The key factor attributed to the high growth of the market in the region is the presence of high geriatric population suffering from a range of respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary disorders requiring urgent diagnosis and effective treatment. Other factors include rising government support, increasing awareness and affordability, and corresponding demand for advanced X-ray systems across major economies in the region.
