Ultrasound Bladder Scanner Market By Product Type (Portable Ultrasound Scanner, Benchtop Ultrasound Scanner), By End User (Hospitals, Diagnostic Centers, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, Clinics) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The ultrasound bladder scanners market is expected to exhibit productive growth during the forecast period.

The global ultrasound bladder scanners market is expanding rapidly, with a value of US$ 122.4 million in 2017 and a projected value of US$ 207.2 million by 2026. Globally increasing urological disorders (urinary tract infections, urinary incontinence, and voiding dysfunction) will drive market growth, as will the use of advanced handheld or portable devices. New technological advancements in the field of mobile technology and improvements in clinical governance and healthcare infrastructure will further spur revenue growth. New product launches in the 3D portable segment, collaboration with small-scale medical technology companies, and expansion in developing nations are a few factors driving the overall growth of the market.

Market Synopsis

Portable devices are expected to register higher growth during the forecast period.

The adoption of 3D ultrasound bladder scanners is in demand due to their higher visualization quality, integrated algorithms, and mobile technology (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity). Newly manufactured products are also utilized in various applications, including emergency care, pediatrics, maternity, rehabilitation, oncology, and home care. The portable devices allow fast and consistent data management and interoperability with electronic health record systems. 3D devices hold the largest market share in the portable segment due to their ease with enhanced technology.

Increasing adoption of portable devices in the hospital segment will witness a significant CAGR.

Urological disorders are significant variables expected for the growth and development of the ultrasound bladder scanner market. Increasing procedures for urology, obstetrics-gynecology, surgery, rehabilitation, and others in the hospital segment have generated a significant market share at the present time. Growing demand for 3D products for various applications will spur revenue growth during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of new handheld devices with noninvasive measurements of bladder volume and integrated software tools for higher optimization and safety is driving market growth in the end-user segment.

Increasing population, new product approvals, and enhanced technology hold the U.S. in a dominant position.

In 2017, North America generated the most revenue in the global ultrasound bladder scanners market, which can be attributed to the rising prevalence of urological disorders, increasing diagnostic procedures, and increasing utilization of mobile portable ultrasound devices in clinics and hospitals. Portable ultrasound scanners provide excellent real-time results and reduce the need for catheterization in patients. The top medical device manufacturers are constrained to lower the overall costs of ultrasound bladder scanners for increasing penetration in developing nations worldwide. However, in nations with moderate economies, such as India, Brazil, South Africa, and others, the availability of advanced ultrasound models and diagnostic services is limited. A shortage of skilled professionals, high device costs (average of US$ 5,000-7,000), and unstructured reimbursement scenarios are some of the factors limiting the market growth.
