Market Synopsis of the Global Bone Density Test Market


Bone density test determines the density of bones and chances of the bone being broken. Central dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) test is recommended for testing the bone density of hip and spine. Bone density test used in the diagnosis of osteoporosis, and osteopenia. The osteoporosis mostly occurs in women after the menopause but may also be present in males. The condition is less common in adults and children.


Rising prevalence of osteoporosis, osteopenia, hyperthyroidism, and increasing demand for portable bone testing devices drive the market growth. Furthermore, the demand for diagnosis and treatment measures for osteoporosis also influence the market growth. Additionally, the demand for technologically advanced devices drives the market growth.


According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds across the globe. It also stated that osteoporosis affected an estimated 75 million people in Europe, the US, and Japan.


The global bone density test market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period.

Regional Analysis of the Global Bone Density Test Market


The Americas hold the first position in global bone density test market owing to the rising prevalence of osteoporosis and other bone disorders, and increasing demand for hand held devices for bone density test. The prevalence of osteoporosis is found to be higher in the population over 35 years of age. Changing lifestyle, emphasis on fitness and exercise, and overall development of medical device industry also accelerate the growth of the market.


Europe is the second largest market for bone density test. In European countries the prevalence of osteoporosis has been increasing from the last few years. Furthermore, increasing demand for portable and hand held devices for the diagnosis of osteoporosis and osteopenia add fuel to the growth of the market. However, changing population demographics likely to affect the prevalence of osteoporosis in the European Union (EU).


The Asia Pacific market is expected to grow rapidly and is driven by the rising prevalence of osteoporosis in women after menopause. Additionally, increasing awareness regarding women healthcare and nutrition also influence the market growth. Japan is the largest bone density test market in Asia Pacific region. Rising healthcare expenditure, and extensive growth of medical device industry also boost the demand for the medical devices for diagnosis of various diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer, and others.


The Middle East & Africa also show a steady rise in the market owing to low demand for the bone density tests than the developed nations, and emphasis on primary care services.
