Furthermore, in March 2019, Varex Imaging Corp. has announced to acquire at least 90% of the shares of common stock of Direct Conversion AB, manufacturer and marketer of linear array digital detectors utilizing direct conversion and photon counting technology. The acquisition was aimed to expand product portfolio and to extend geographical outreach, particularly in the global medical x-ray market. In addition, in March 2018, Teledyne Technologies Inc. announced that the company’s subsidiary, Teledyne DALSA, Inc., is expanding its manufacturing facility due to the increasing demand for the company’s proprietary complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor-based x-ray detectors across the globe.


Increasing Geriatric Population Susceptible to Orthopedic Disorders is Driving the Chinese Medical X-Ray Market Growth

United Nations stated that the number of aged people in China is projected to grow by 71% between 2015 and 2023. World Economic Forum stated that, in 2015, the number of aged people in China (136.9 million) surpassed Japan’s total population (126.9 million). Moreover, this number is projected to grow to 238.8 million, by 2030, which will be less than the combined total projected populations of Japan and Egypt (231.8 million). This number is further projected to grow up to 348.8 million which will be nearly equal to the combined populations of Japan, Egypt, Germany, and Australia.

The increasing number of aged people in the country may lead to a rise in the prevalence of orthopedic disorders such as osteoporosis, which surges the demand for medical x-ray devices across the country. Aging plays an important factor in developing the possibility of osteoporosis among different sex-groups. As per the International Osteoporosis Foundation, the prevalence rate of osteoporosis in women aged 50 years or above is nearly 50.1% in the country. Osteoporosis leads to fracture of bones, which surges the need for effective diagnosis for the disorder so that effective treatment can be carried out by the patient. This surges the growth of the global medical x-ray market.
