Market Overview

The European economy is on track to grow at a good pace over the forecast period. Coupled with several large regional tenders that are expected this year, the ultrasound market is projected to see a slight uptick in demand. Governments across Europe are focusing on the promotion and support of industrial research. Several tax incentives have been provided for the industries to establish R&D units, with highly improved imaging facilities, such as ultrasound. The long-term goal of these initiatives is to develop innovative, disruptive, safe, non-invasive ultrasound technologies that enable or enhance interventional therapies for the treatment of diseases, injuries, abnormalities, and other conditions. Additionally, increasing demand for the minimally invasive device, rise in the number of the elderly population, curtailment in the size of ultrasound devices, and increasing incidences of chronic diseases (like cancer) are some of the other factors contributing to the growth of the European ultrasound devices market. However, rising demand for refurbished medical imaging devices and, lack of skilled labor to handle the equipment are restraining the market growth.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, a diagnostic ultrasound, also known as sonography, is an imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the different structures inside the body. These devices are being utilized for the assessment of various conditions in the kidney, liver, and other abdominal conditions. They are also majorly used in chronic diseases, which include health conditions, such as heart disease, asthma, cancer, and diabetes. Therefore, these devices are being utilized as both diagnostic imaging and therapeutic modality, and have a wide range of applications in the medical field.

Key Market Trends

Portable Ultrasound Segment Estimated to Dominate the Market Over the Forecast Period

Portable ultrasound has varied applications in point-of-care treatments, emergency rooms, and at home. Hospitals and other healthcare providers are switching to portable and handheld ultrasound imaging devices, due to the ease of use and precision. The applications of portable ultrasound devices are increasing, as they are now being used in emergency rooms and while administering anesthesia. With advancements in technology, the manufacturers are not only making the devices more compact and portable but are also incorporating newer technologies, such as 3D and 4D imaging. The number of such patients using portable ultrasound devices at home has increased. Pre-medicine is another area where there is scope for the growth of the portable ultrasound market. The already well-equipped ambulances can now carry a space-saving portable ultrasound device, which helps the paramedics to send images to the hospitals in advance, to accelerate the treatment offered during a medical emergency.
