Bone Sonometer Market Equipments Details by Clinical Experts 2018-2026

The ****** Bone Sonometer Market sizewas valued at US$ 864.3 million in 2017, and is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.32% over the forecast period (2018 – 2026).

Bone Sonometer is a noninvasive method of estimating bone mineral status at peripheral skeleton. In addition to bone density, this method also provides qualitative data such as structural information, which is important in detecting fracture risk. Major advantage of this technique and devices used under it are, it is safe as no radiation is used, easy to use even at home care settings, and cost-effective as compared to other techniques used to determine bone density. These devices are portable and take only a fraction of minutes to measure bone density. Bone sonometers are especially used to assess the bone mineral status in children, neonates, and pediatric patients, who cannot be exposed to radiation and who are likely to develop osteoporosis in the near future, due to nutritional deficit.

Market Dynamics

Increasing cases of osteoporosis fracture and high cost associated with treatment would lead to more preference for adopting preventive care measures in all age groups. According to Osteoporosis Canada, osteoporosis causes 70–90% of the 30,000 hip fractures annually. Moreover, in 2012, treatment of osteoporosis was valued at around US$ 3.9 billion in Canada. In addition, growing aged population would create greater need for skeletal diagnosis system to determine bone density and overall bone health, which would create more demand for bone sonometer market.

Increasing incidence of osteoporosis worldwide, is expected to promote growth of the bone sonometer market

Increasing incidence of fracture due to osteoporosis would be major reason for growth of the bone sonometer market. According to International Osteoporosis Foundation statistics in 2017, over 8.9 million fractures are caused due to osteoporosis, annually. Furthermore, according to same source, around 200 million postmenopausal women suffer from osteoporosis, globally. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2016, around 25% women aged 65 and above were suffering from osteoporosis of the femur neck or lumbar spine, and needed treatment. Such instances will in turn fuel growth of the bone sonometer market.

Product innovation and increasing geriatric population worldwide, is expected to be factors of growth for the bone sonometer market

There is logical corollary between innovation in bone sonometer products and growth of the bone sonometer market, especially in developed regions such as North America and Europe that already has one of the highest per capita expenditure and strong healthcare infrastructure.

Most of the key manufacturers of bone sonometer are focusing on providing portable models, which can be easily connected with computers and digital platforms, take less amount of examination time, and easy to carry anywhere. Pegasus Smart is one such bone sonometer by DMS imaging, which takes only about one second to examine bone density at peripheral bones. It can store up to 300 examination images and these images can be transferred to laptop or computer on permanent workstation such as electronic health record or population health management, for easy access. Some devices offer age group specific configuration (neonatal, pediatric, and adults) and multisite density scanning as against traditional bone sonometer that is mostly used at calcaneus and phalanges.
