Digital radiography, the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of 5.43%, is expected to grow rapidly and supersede computed radiography (CR) over the next decade. Developing countries play a vital role in the growth of the digital X-ray market, as the market in developed nations has reached a saturation point.Asia, which accounts for two-third of the worlds population, has potential to overtake North America and Europe as the major market over the next decade.
