Ultrasound Devices Market

Cardiology applications accounted for the major market share in global ultrasound devices market in 2015. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) account for 9.4 million deaths globally each year. The number is likely to increase to 23.3 million by 2030. Elderly people are susceptible to various ailments such as abdominal disorders and cardiovascular diseases. Thus, high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and rising public awareness associated with cardiovascular disease diagnosis are the major factors assisting its growth of ultrasound devices market during the forecast period 2016 – 2022.

Technological segmentation of ultrasound devices comprises 2-D ultrasound, 3-D and 4-D ultrasound, Doppler ultrasound, high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), and lithotripsy ultrasound technologies. In base year 2015, 3-D and 4-D ultrasound segment accounted for the largest share of the market and is expected to continue to dominate the market during the forecast period 2016 – 2022. The factors assisting the growth of 3-D and 4-D ultrasound device market are increasing demand for efficient ultrasound technologies, rising number of hospitals installing advanced imaging technologies and rapid introduction of novel and efficient imaging products in the market. According to market experts, 3D and 4D ultrasound will never be a mandatory evolution of our conventional 2D ultrasound and would rather be considered as an additional tool similar to Doppler ultrasound. In future the majority of diagnostics will be carried out with the help of 2D ultrasound. However, 3D ultrasound seems to have a great potential in research and in the study of fetal embryology.

Based on the technology used, the ultrasound devices market is segmented into:

  • 2-D Ultrasound Imaging
  • 3-D and 4-D Ultrasound Imaging
  • Doppler Ultrasound Imaging
  • High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
  • Lithotripsy Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound Devices Market

For the purpose of this study, the global ultrasound devices market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

 Ultrasound Devices Market
 

Ultrasound imaging technology has wide utilization in field of diagnosis, ranges from fetal imaging to cancer detection. One of the major advantages of ultrasound is it doesn’t possess any radiation based harmful effects which is boosting the adoption rate of diagnostic imaging techniques. The demand for ultrasound devices is expected to increase in Europe due to increasing prevalence of kidney stone patients, gastrointestinal diseases and obesity. In base year 2015, Europe accounted for the largest share of the ultrasound devices market and expected to project average growth during the forecast period. The key factors assisting the growth of ultrasound market in this region are the number of products being commercialized, development in clinical applications of HIFU, rising market penetration of therapeutic ultrasound, and growing importance of minimally invasive procedures. However, according to market experts high cost of ultrasound devices stringent regulations and legislations and lack of skilled healthcare professionals to operate devices are expected to hinder the growth of ultrasound devices market across the globe.
