The evolution of C-arm technology has been truly remarkable, ushering in the era of mobile and mini C-arms. These advancements have provided surgeons with the gift of mobility and improved image quality, enabling them to track surgical progress in real time and swiftly identify the areas for improvement. This translates into better treatment outcomes, speedier patient recovery, and a reduced need for subsequent procedures. The incorporation of Flat Panel Detectors (FPD) in C-arms has contributed to this advancement by lowering radiation exposure. The rising prevalence and awareness of chronic conditions like neurological disorders, orthopedic issues, and cardiovascular diseases, which frequently demand surgical interventions, are driving the growth of the global fixed and mobile C-arms market. Furthermore, the growing elderly population, more prone to chronic ailments, combined with a preference for minimally invasive surgical techniques, is anticipated to further boost market growth.

The global fixed and mobile C-arms market is projected to grow at a robust CAGR of 5.6% from 2023 to 2030 to reach USD 3.97 billion by 2030, driven by continued technological advancements in C-arm technology, increasing number of surgical procedures and rise in the aging population which is susceptible to chronic disorders. These are the latest findings of Research and Markets (Dublin, Ireland), a leading source for international market research reports and market data.

Based on type, the fixed C-arm segment held the largest revenue share at 53.6% of the fixed and mobile C-arms market in 2022 although the mobile C-arm segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. On the basis of application, the orthopedics and trauma segment held the largest revenue share of over 22.7% of the fixed and mobile C-arms market in 2022. However, the neurosurgery and cardiovascular segments are projected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to an increase in the number of surgical procedures being performed. Geographically, North America dominated the global fixed and mobile C-arms market, accounting for a revenue share of 38.3% in 2022, although Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit the fastest CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period due to the high demand for enhanced imaging devices in the region.
