U.S. Market for Fixed C-Arms to Grow over Five Percent in Five Years

February 22, 2008 - According to Millennium Research Group’s Global Markets for C-Arms 2008 report, the U.S. market for fixed C-arm systems, comprising units used for cardiology, angiography and neuroradiology procedures, was valued at over $1.4 billion in 2007 and will rise to over $1.8 billion by 2012.

In the U.S., several hospitals have begun using fixed C-arms in operating room (OR) environments. This trend has emerged as a result of the physician movement towards collaborative surgeries, in which many specialists work together to perform complex procedures, said the report. The installation of a C-arm system in the OR allows for the ideal imaging environment for this approach.

“A fixed C-arm offers the advanced imaging capabilities required to treat many complex procedures,” said Ryan Goren, analyst at Millennium Research Group. “These systems provide surgeons with the best imaging experience possible when performing complex interventional procedures, such as interventional cardiology and interventional radiology.”

The Global Markets for C-Arms report includes coverage of U.S., Europe (France, Germany, Italy, and the U.K.), and Asia Pacific (Japan, China, India, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan). The report provides coverage of all key industry competitors, including GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, Toshiba Healthcare and Shimadzu, said the report.
