Handheld X-ray is Projected to Reach $ 1.25 Billion by 2032


Handheld X-ray is Projected to Reach $ 1.25 Billion by 2032

According to the new report titled ” Handheld X-ray Market By Application {Dental,
Orthopedic and Others}, By End User {Hospitals, Outpatient Facilities and Research &
Manufacturing}, Global Analysis to 2024″, the valuation of the Handheld X-ray market
was $0.35 Billion in 2024 and is projected to reach $1.25 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of
9.20% from 2024 to 2032.


In recent years the adoption of digitalization around the globe has been significantly
increased. As this is an era of digital revolution where the whole world is shifting from
analogue to digital electronics. Due to this, the inventions of miniaturization of the devices
have been followed. And one such invention is the handheld x-ray devices. With the
introduction of the of technology into dental radiology, there is an immediate need to change
the old guidelines that many states used to regulate the use of ionizing radiation. The
handheld portable x-ray devices are increasingly being used for the internal radiography. The
core consideration of the in any radiographic procedure involving live patients is to reduce
the dose too the patient as much as possible while still achieving the diagnostic goals. The
handheld x-rays device is mainly designed to operate with factors that help to maintain a safe
operating region. The device also offers portability in X-ray technology, featuring the
cordless operation, rechargeable 14.4-V nickel–cadmium battery packs, and providing more
than 100–700 exposures within a single charge. It usually weighs around 8 pounds and has an
internal lead shielding as well as external lead acrylic backscatter shield. There is also an
automatic shut off and on feature that minimizes the risk of inadvertent exposure. The device
operates on direct current at a fixed 60 kV, 2.3 mA, focal spot about 0.4mm and source to
skin distance around 20 cm.

North America to be at the front in 2024, leading the Handheld X-ray Market.

The north American region is experiencing a significant dominance within the Handheld X-
rays market
due to various aspects. One of the major reasons is the increasing geriatric
populations within the geographical region. For instance, in 2019 the population aged 65+

was approximately around 54.1 million of which 30 million were women’s and 24.1 million
were men. They all represented 16% of the total population, which is more than one in every
7 Americans. Due to aging the bone thinning makes our bone density drop below normal
which increases the prevalence of osteoporosis which eventually leads to multiple bone
fractures. Osteoporosis is basically defined as a low bone mass and microarchitectural
deterioration of the of the existing bone tissues with a consequent increase in bone fragility
which is susceptible to fractures. According to the CDCP medical journal in 2017-2018 the
prevalence of osteoporosis related fractures among adults aged 50 and over was 12% and was
higher among women 19.6% which is making the North American region dominate the
Handheld X-ray market significantly.

The Dental Imaging Segment Maintains a Position of Pre-Eminence Within the
Application Segment of the Handheld X-ray Market.

Dental imaging plays a vital role in securing a good oral healthcare. By the help of dental imaging
the cavity detection can be identified soon especially which is between the tooth or below the
gumline which is not able to be detected during routine checkup. Due to this prompt
treatment can be provided before the decay worsens. The imaging can also identify the
current bone density status of the jawbone which can substantially help the dentist in
evaluating whether the bone loss is due to any sort of gum disease or other conditions. As
dental imaging provides a detailed outline for any sort of dental procedures to be carried out
such as the root canal, tooth extraction etc., or even provides insights for an ongoing dental
treatment like the orthodontic treatment (braces) which helps the dental imaging segment
dominates within the application segment in the Handheld X-ray market significantly.
