Market Overview

The propelling factors for the growth of the ultrasound devices market include the government and private funding for R&D in ultrasound imaging, an increasing number of healthcare providers, technological advancements, and increasing incidences of chronic diseases.

  • The incidences and prevalence of chronic diseases are rapidly increasing all around the world. Currently, affecting more than 14 million people around the world, the prevalence of cancer is becoming a major concern for the healthcare sectors across the world. The demand for ultrasound imaging devices is expected to rise, along with the demand for the early detection of disease and minimization of the cost of treating these chronic diseases. This also increases the number of diagnostic imaging procedures. Moreover, the rising geriatric population across the globe is expected to boost the market, as the aging population is more prone to chronic diseases.
  • The rising technological advancements, supported by the adoption of trusted associations, are expected to boost the market growth. Curtailment in the size of ultrasound devices has given the market a slight boost, if not a significant one. It has given the healthcare facilities a chance to replace old heavy devices with small devices. With the reduction in size of these devices, the problem of storage is solved, enabling the facilities to operate more efficiently with more number of devices.

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. They 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

3D and 4D Ultrasound Imaging Segment is Expected to Grow Fastest during the Forecast Period

3D and 4D ultrasound imaging take images at various angles, as compared to a single angle by 2D ultrasound. 4D ultrasound has added advantages of visualization and motion. It is widely used for abdominal applications, including the detection of abnormal fetus development, visualization of colon and rectum, detection of cancerous and benign tumors of prostate glands, and breast lesions, along with the flow of blood in various organs or a fetus. These ultrasounds are likely to experience substantial growth in the coming years, with the higher adoption of technologically advanced devices for better clinical decisions. Additionally, this segment is anticipated to gain more share and emerge as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period.

The Doppler imaging ultrasound technique is widely adopted, due to its advancements, and is used to estimate the blood flow through blood vessels by high-frequency sound waves.
