X-ray and Endoscopy Medical Imaging Applications & Technology Trends

  1. 1. X-ray and Endoscopy Medical Imaging Applications &Technology TrendsReport Details:Published:October 2012No. of Pages:Price: Single User License – US$5390SMALL MARKET, BUT HIGH GROWTH FUELED BY EMERGING PRODUCTSThe solid-state medical image sensor market is driven by two major applications: X-ray imagingand endoscopy.Medical image sensor shipments will increase from 1.8M units to 4.2M units in 2017, fueled bygrowing sales of disposable endoscopes and camera pills. These emerging products will findbroad adoption in clinical practices owing to incentives being provided in Europe and the US toreduce nosocomial infections.From a revenue stand point, medical image sensor market will grow at a significant 9% CAGR inthe 2012-2017 period, and is expected to reach $112M in 2017. X-ray image sensors account for93% of total medical image sensors market revenue due to the ultra expensive price of X-raysensors.In this report, you will find details on the market evolution in revenue, volume and wafershipments.INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS GIVE RISE TO NEW APPLICATIONS AND CREATE NEWMARKETSThe medical image sensor market is characterized by a straight duality between X-ray imagingand endoscopy applications on price and volume. X-ray imaging is a very high-end market with amultitude of players, while endoscopy market is a high volume and low price point market with alimited number of players.Seven segments are identified and need to be considered separately because they implicatedifferent supply chains, drivers, and technical specifications. In this report, each of thesesegments is described with market drivers & technology trends.X-ray and endoscopy markets are in evolving quickly, and are the source of numerous innovationsat both equipment and application levels. Emerging products like disposable endoscopes, camerapills and CMOS X-ray flat panels are poised to drive the growth of medical image sensors in bothvolume and revenue, and help new players to enter the market.MULTIPLE TECHNOLOGIES IN COMPETITION TO DOMINATE THE MEDICAL MARKETThree technologies are currently used in medical imaging: CCD, CMOS and amorphous silicon (a-Si).
  2. 2. CMOS image sensors are a decade old technology, but a second wave of innovation has recentlytaken place and CMOS image sensors will quickly gain market shares in both endoscopy and X-ray markets at the expense of CCD sensors and a-Si flat panels.CCD technology will continue to dominate historical endoscopymarkets i.e. flexible and rigidendoscopy, growing at a moderate rate of 6%.X-ray imaging and amorphous silicon detectors will stay the mainstream technology for very largestatic X-ray imaging thanks to their cost effectiveness.A new X-ray technology mixing CMOS circuits and advanced packaging technologies is currentlyunder development by all major players of X-ray imaging such as Philips or Siemens. Thattechnology, namely Single Photon Counting is expected by 2017 and is the next milestone of X-ray medical diagnostic.In this report, you will find detailed markets forecasts by product & technology, along withapplication & technology trends.NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO ENTER THE MEDICAL IMAGING MARKETThat technology shift in endoscopy and X-ray imaging represents a major opportunity for newentrants to take positions in the medical imaging market in niche, but nevertheless fast growing,applications. Numerous companies have entered the endoscopy market by offering innovativedisposable endoscope or cameras pills, similarly to CMOS X-ray flat panel detector vendors.Currently some historical players like Karl Storz or Hoya in endoscopy, or Trixell and GeneralElectric in X-ray, have stood back. But what will they do as these growing markets will reachcritical size? Some acquisitions have already occurred, and are ideal for big players to quicklycomplement their product portfolio and keep offering leading edge products with low technologicalrisk.This report includes the key companies to watch and their positional strength in the supply chain.WHO SHOULD BUY THIS REPORT?•CMOS, CCD & a-Si foundries, packaging houses, sensors vendors•Assess the TAM – total accessible market of your company’s related products in endoscopy and X-ray imaging.•Identify technology trends, challenges and precise requirements for the different market applications.•Medical equipment manufacturers•Understand the X-ray and endoscopy manufacturing supply and value chain.•Assess the positioning of your product in these dynamic market.KEY FEATURES OF THE REPORT•Technologies balance of forces for each medical device•Endoscopy and X-ray equipment: market drivers & forecasts in revenue and in volume•Medical image sensors: market drivers & forecasts in revenue, volume and wafers•Detailed supply chain and value chain analysisGet your copy of this report @http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/195566-x-ray-and-endoscopy-medical-imaging-applications-technology-trends.html
