Portable Ultrasound Bladder Scanner Market Analysis

The portable ultrasound bladder scanner market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 6.1% during the forecast period.

  • The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the growth of the portable ultrasound bladder scanner market as portable ultrasound scanners are cheap, easy to handle, and equivalent to standard scanners for non-invasive assessment of severity. For instance, an article published by National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in January 2022 reported an online survey was done from 2019 to 2022 across 20 countries of the world covering the 3-year period that stated that COVID-19 pandemic increased the usage of portable ultrasound bladder scanners, as during this period due to unavailability of various diagnostic services at hospitals and clinics, more people opted for portable ultrasound bladder scanners, and thus the demand also increased significantly during this period.
  • However, in the current scenario, the market is expected to witness growth over the forecast period owing to the benefits associated with this device, like providing the flexibility and mobility to travel with clinicians and image patients where they are in real-time.
  • The factors that are driving the growth of the studied market are the rising urological diseases, technological advancements, and the growing adoption of non-invasive diagnostic procedures. For instance, an article published by National Cancer Institute (NCI) in December 2022 reported that in the year 2022, 81.1 thousand new cases of bladder cancer were recorded in the United States, with 61.7 thousand cases found in men and 19.4 thousand cases in women.
  • Similarly, an article published by the International Journal of Molecular Sciences in November 2022 reported that interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is an immense burden to both patients, with a global prevalence of 6-7% annually. Thus, a high prevalence of urological diseases is expected to increase the demand for portable ultrasound scanners for disease diagnosis, thereby driving the growth of the studied market.
  • Furthermore, technological advancements and the growing adoption of non-invasive diagnostic procedures are also contributing to the growth of the studied market. For instance, in June 2021, Healcerion launched the SONON 300L handheld ultrasound device in the United States after receiving United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approval for primary care providers. It provides flexible ultrasound technology at less than 1/10 the cost of a traditional ultrasound machine, with a user interface anyone can learn in minutes. Similarly, in February 2022, Butterfly Network and Ambra Health entered into a partnership to accelerate and simplify interoperability for bedside imaging data. This partnership strengthens the scalability of Butterfly Blueprint, Butterfly's enterprise platform. This will enhance access to and shareability of valuable ultrasound information across hospitals and health systems. Thus, such product launches and partnerships are driving the growth of the studied market.
  • Thus, due to the are the rising prevalence of urological diseases and technological advancements and the growing adoption of non-invasive diagnostic procedures, the studied market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. However, high operator dependency may slow down the growth of the studied market.

Portable Ultrasound Bladder Scanner Market Trends

3D Portable Ultrasound Bladder Scanner are Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period.

  • A 3-D bladder ultrasound scanner is a portable, hand-held ultrasound. The scanner has an ultrasound probe and transducer to reflect sound waves from the patient's bladder to the scanner. Different scanning modes are designed to match different user preferences, along with advanced targeting features that make finding the bladder simple. It is also a valuable tool for providing post-void residual volume (PVR) to assess possible urinary retention.
  • 3D bladder scanning is ideal for several clinical environments as it offers automatic 3D scanning for fast and accurate bladder volumes, along with easy-to-use targeting and real-time scanning modes, ideal for non-specialists or experienced users. The factors that are driving the growth of the studied market are the rising incidence of bladder cancer, urinary tract infections (UTIs), and new product launches.
  • The high number of bladder cancer cases is expected to drive the growth of the market. For instance, an article published by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in July 2022 reported that worldwide, Greece has a high incidence of bladder cancer among males, whereas Hungary has a high incidence of bladder cancer cases among females. Southern Europe, where approximately 26.6 per 100,000 males and 5.8 per 100,000 females are diagnosed with bladder cancer each year, has the most significant incidence of bladder cancer among the global population.
  • Furthermore, clinical studies and research studies proving the benefits and technological advancements associated with 3-D portable bladder scanners are expected to drive the growth of the studied segment.
  • For instance, an article published by the America Journal of Clinical and Experimental Urology in February 2022 reported a study was conducted in a hospital in California to see the images obtained by the 3-D portable ultrasound bladder scanner. The results of the study showed that 3-D scanner shows more clear images due to their technology. As a result, more people are drifting towards the use of a 3-D scanner. Thus, such instances are expected to increase the demand for these scanners, thereby boosting the growth of the studied segment.

North America are Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period.

  • The North American region consists of three countries United States, Canada, and Mexico. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the high number of urological disorders like urinary tract infections (UTIs), kidney stones, bladder control problems, prostate problems, etc., and technological advancements and the growing adoption of non-invasive diagnostic procedures.
  • The high incidence of UTIs is driving the growth of the studied market. For instance, an article published by the journal Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI) in October 2021 reported that UTIs are a public health problem in Mexico and UTIs are the main infections, with a prevalence of 4 per 1000 cases that lead to a prolonged hospital stay. A bladder scan is a safe, painless, reliable procedure that allows you to assess the volume of urine retained within the bladder.
  • Using a scanner instead of urinary catheterization alleviates discomfort, pain, and the introduction of outside pathogens to the patient's bladder. Thus, with high infection of UTIs in the country is expected to increase the demand for portable ultrasound bladder scanners in the region, thereby boosting the market's growth.
  • Moreover, an article published by the journal American Cancer Society in January 2023 reported about 82.2 thousand new cases of bladder cancer (about 62.4 thousand in men and 19.8 thousand in women) in the United States in the year 2022. The high number of bladder cancer cases is expected to drive the growth of the studied market in the region.
  • Furthermore, new product launches are also driving the growth of the studied market. Similarly, in 2021, Mindray Medical, a primary global healthcare provider, launched a new portable ultrasound device that uses artificial intelligence (AI)-based technology to asses fluid in critically ill patients and provides clear image quality. Thus, a high number of bladder cancer cases, UTI cases, and product launches in the region are expected to increase the demand for portable ultrasound bladder scanners.
