Increase in Aging Population with High Healthcare Needs and Commercialization of Technologically Advanced X-ray Systems to Drive Market
Most developed countries have a high geriatric population. It has also been estimated that around 82% of the people who succumb to a coronary artery disease are aged 65 years and above. According to WHO estimates, the geriatric population would increase at a rapid pace in developed countries such as the U.S., the U.K., and Japan. Access to various diagnostic and treatment services has improved due to favorable health care policies and advancements in healthcare facilities in countries such as the U.S., Japan, the U.K. and other countries in Western Europe. This in turn has increased life expectancy of the population. Brazil, China, Thailand, and South Korea are expected to have a large geriatric population in the shortest span of time. Aged individuals are more prone to diseases and disorders; hence, have high healthcare requirements. Aged individuals would increase the patient pool in these countries, which in turn is likely to boost the growth of the X-ray market in Asia Pacific in the next few years.
