Market Overview

The Ultrasound Probe Disinfection market is projected to register a CAGR of 14% during the forecast period.

During the COVID 19 pandemic, there is a rising demand for Ultrasound Probe Disinfection, which is driving market growth. This is due to the increased demand for medical supplies such as personal protective equipment. Also, the sudden increase in the infection rate of COVID- 19 could positively impact the market as ultrasound probe disinfection could prevent the risk of infections among physicians and patients. Also, the increase in Nosocomial infections poses a serious global challenge to health care professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, there is an increasing demand for the Ultrasound probe disinfection market to prevent the further spread of such hospital-acquired infections.

The increasing incidence of hospital-acquired infections is the major driver, which is anticipated to boost the growth of the market, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In 2020, In American Hospitals alone, hospital-acquired infections alone accounted for an estimated 1.7 million infections and 99,000 associated deaths each year. However, the report states that patients who acquire infections from surgery spend, on average, an additional 6.5 days in the hospital are five times more likely to be readmitted after discharge and twice as likely to die. Thus, the increasing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections among the patients resulted in the growing awareness about maintaining a sterile and disinfectant environment in hospitals. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for ultrasound probe disinfection inorder to reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections. Thus the increasing prevalence of Hospital Acquired infection is expected to propel the market's growth in the forecast period. However, the high cost of automated probe reprocessors is expected to limit the market's growth.

Scope of the Report

Key Market Trends

The Hospitals and Diagnostic Laboratories Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 had increased the demand for disinfection equipment to control and prevent the further spread of the infections. The hospitals and diagnostic laboratories segment are expected to hold the major share in the forecast period due to increasing awareness to ensure the safety of workers and patients in the hospital. Considering these factors, COVID-19 is expected to significantly impact the growth of the hospitals and diagnostic laboratories segment.

Key factors such as a rise in the number of ultrasound procedures and an increase in hospital-acquired infections due to improper disinfection in hospitals and diagnostic laboratories and of ultrasound probes are expected to increase the demand for ultra-sound probe disinfection. According to World Health Organization, healthcare-associated infections represent hospitalized patients' most common adverse event worldwide. Also, According to the American Journal of Infection Control, Over 2.5 million hospital Acquired infections occur every year in Europe, with more than 90,000 deaths. Such an increase in the risk of hospital-acquired infections resulted in the necessity for disinfection in hospitals to promote the highest safety for the patients and the medical without transmitting any sort of infection. Therefore, the hospital and diagnostics laboratories segment is expected to hold the major share due to the rise increasing usage of ultrasound probe disinfection.

Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market Share

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period.

The increased adoption of highly advanced techniques and systems in disinfection for probes and the technological advancements in ultrasound probes are expected to boost the market's growth in the North American region. Also, the increasing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections among people in the United States is expected to drive the demand for the Ultrasound probe disinfection market in this region. For instance, In 2020, the data published by the Center for Infectious disease research and policy stated that the hospital-acquired infection rate increased by 47 % in the United States. This rise in the prevalence of hospital-acquired infections led to the adoption of high-level disinfection systems for ultrasound probes. Thus the increasing awareness about the importance of ultrasound probe disinfection coupled with increasing investment in the health care department is known to propel the market growth in this region.
