Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Bone Densitometer Systems Market size is expected to surpass USD 400 Million by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of bone densitometer systems was over USD 300 Million. The major factor for the expansion of the global bone densitometer systems is the rising cases of bone disorders and related diseases including muscular dystrophy, and Duchene muscular dystrophy among the global population. Furthermore, if these diseases are not treated with effectiveness, they worsen over time and can lead to degenerative disease and orthopedic limitation which generates the need for bone densitometer systems. The National Library of Medicine published a report in 2018 that calculated the prevalence of osteoporosis to be more than 200 million people across the world. It also has been calculated that the occurrence of osteoporosis in women around the world is more than 23% and in men around the world was found to be almost 11%.

The growth of the bone densitometer systems market is attributed to growing cases of osteoporosis among the population, the surge in the incidence of accidents and traumas, and the development of new bone densitometer products by the major key players operating in the market. Furthermore, the increase in the number of product approvals by regulatory bodies is anticipated to provide remunerative opportunities for the expansion of the global bone densitometer systems during the forecast period.

Bone Densitometer Systems Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Diseases - Musculoskeletal diseases are a group of diseases that usually affects the joints, bones, and muscles, and aid the development of other bone diseases and their related illnesses. Treatment of such musculoskeletal conditions requires bone densitometer systems for an effective healing process of bones. As per the statistics shared by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2022, approximately 1.71 billion people are affected by musculoskeletal conditions all over the world.
  • Rapid Growth of the Orthopedic Devices Industry –This expansion of orthopedic devices is anticipated to generate favorable opportunities for an increase in the utilization rate of bone densitometer systems in treating bone diseases. For instance, the orthopedic device industry was expected to reach a total value of USD 45 billion by 2022.
  • Rapid Escalation in Number of Bone Fractures – For instance, in 2019, there were more than 175 million cases of fractures and approximately 450 million cases of acute or long-term symptoms of a fracture.
  • High Focus on Developing the Medical Devices Sector - The data revealed by the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) stated that in FY20, the foreign investments in the Indian medical devices sector increased to USD 301 million from USD 151 million in FY19, which indicates a 98% increment.


  • High Cost of Bone Densitometer Systems – Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) is one of the most common methods of bone densitometer systems for detecting bone mineral density. However, the cost of DEXA scanners is very much high owing to the integration of technologically advanced features and programs.
  • Requirement of High Initial Investments
  • Unavailability of Skilled Workforce for Utilization of Advanced Devices

Bone Densitometer Systems Segmentation

Application (Osteoporosis & Osteopenia, Cystic Fibrosis, Chronic Kidney Disease, Body Composition Measurement, Rheumatic Arthritis)

The osteoporosis & osteopenia segment in the bone densitometer systems market is estimated to gain the largest share of about ~32% in the year 2035. The main reason for segment growth is the rising cases of osteoporosis & osteopenia owing to the adoption of a sedentary lifestyle. Also, the burgeoning geriatric population who are more prone to osteoporosis & osteopenia is considered to positively contribute towards segment growth. As per the data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), the share of the population of age 60 or above in the world increased from 1 billion to 1.4 billion in 2022 and is projected to double by 2050 reaching around 2.1 billion.

End-User (Hospitals, Clinics)

The hospital segment is expected to hold around 46% share of the bone densitometer systems market in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the burgeoning of the geriatric population with a disability who requires full-time assistance and generally admits into hospitals. Moreover, the increasing investment in hospitals by governments of different nations, along with the rising healthcare expenditure, and the availability of the dedicated orthopedic section in the hospital are predicted to fuel the segment growth over the ensuing years. It was noted that spending on health care in the United States increased 2.7 percent in 2021 to USD 4.3 trillion, or USD 12,914 per person. Total expenditure on healthcare accounted for more than 18 percent of the region's GDP.
