    • Company profiles

Global sales revenue ($USD million), unit volume and average selling price (ASP) are presented for calendar years 2020 to 2026 and segmented by application, X-ray system type, detector technology and detector format to provide a comprehensive and insightful view of the global market. Where possible, historical sales data is reported to PMI by individual OEMs under non-disclosure agreements. This data is used to calculate a historical aggregate global market size for calendar year 2020. Alongside this historical data, a 5-year global sales forecast is generated using a combination of quantitative statistical modelling as well as discussions with senior industry executives to capture their market outlooks and specific industry trends. To complement these datasets a written PDF report is published containing analyst commentary on the growth trends and the factors driving the market growth. This PDF report is designed to offer greater context and insight into the underlying data points. In addition to market-level data and insight, the competitive landscape is assessed, and this report contains company profiles of X-ray detector OEMs as well as selected X-ray system OEMs. These profiles highlight individual companies’ competitive position, market share and product portfolio. The report is designed for executives working within the x-ray imaging sector, particularly those working within a market intelligence, product management, strategy, marketing, or investment function.

Proposed Data Segmentation

Global market data points include sales revenue (USD$ million), unit volume and ASP. These are segmented by product category and detector technology. The drivers of sales growth by each segment will be discussed within the analyst commentary.

Research Process

Engage with industry stakeholders: the first stage is to engage with industry stakeholders to discuss and understand their needs from a research project. This process helps to create the desired data specifications and core deliverables.

Primary data collection: once the project scope is agreed upon, PMI seeks to collect sales data directly from OEMs under NDA agreement. Data directly submitted to PMI forms the basis of our market size calculations and ensures accurate market sizing estimates.

Discussion with OEMs and technology providers: alongside data collection, PMI seeks to engage senior executives in discussion around their perspectives on market growth dynamics. These include executives working within a strategy, market intelligence, product management as well as sales & marketing functions.

Secondary research: data is collected from secondary sources including financial reports, customs trade data, government institutions and regulators. This data is used to augment the data reported directly from OEMs to help validate market data points and assumptions.

Delivery and on-going analyst support: alongside the core deliverables, project delivery includes a presentation to highlight the key findings of the research, followed by a Q&A session to answer customer questions. Once the data and report are delivered, analyst support is provided to help customers maximise value from the project.

  • Delivery of this report is expected to occur during in Q4 2021.
