Urology Imaging Systems Market By Product (Standalone Ultrasound Systems, Portable Ultrasound Systems, Fluoroscopy Based Systems), By End User Segment (Hospitals, Diagnostic centers, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, Clinics) - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Landscape, 2018 - 2026

The urology imaging systems market is expected to exhibit productive growth during the forecast period.

The global urology imaging systems market is expanding rapidly, with a value of US$ 302.4 million in 2017 and a projected value of US$ 441.6 million by 2026. Globally, the growing prevalence of urological conditions (mainly urinary incontinence and urinary tract infections), along with the increased adoption of portable urology imaging systems, will drive market growth.

New advancements in mobile technology, developments in clinical governance, and product launches in the 3D/4D imaging segment are prime factors for market growth. Additionally, partnerships with diagnostics centers by medical technology companies internationally and product technology expansion in emerging nations are factors driving the growth of the urology imaging systems market.

Market Synopsis

Portable urology imaging systems are expected to register higher growth during the forecast period.

The adoption of 3D and 4D urology imaging systems are in demand due to their higher magnified visualization quality, integrated and automated algorithms, cutting-edge technology, and cloud-based solutions, for example, Olympus' VISERA 4K UHD. New products are mainly utilized in several applications, including gynecology, general surgery, and emergency care.

The portable ultrasound imaging system allows faster and more consistent statistics and information management, along with record systems. However, due to their strong compatibility and software-embedded technology for multiple applications, such as gynecological, obstetric, and cardiovascular ultrasound, on-platform imaging systems have the largest revenue share in the global market.

The increasing adoption of portable devices in the hospital segment is expected to witness a significant CAGR.

Urological diseases on a global scale are significant factors expected to drive the growth of the urology imaging systems market. In the current scenario, the growing number of procedures in the hospital segment for urological diagnostics, surgery, urolithiasis, scrotal imaging, renal treatment, and others created a significant market.

Increasing preference for 3D and high-intensity focused ultrasound imaging products for numerous applications, including prostate, kidney, and bladder imaging solutions will drive the market's growth during the forecast period. End-user market growth is being driven by the increasing adoption of portable imaging systems with unified software outfits for higher magnified visualization, as well as intellectual patient positioning and the fusion of imaging modalities.

The United States maintains its dominant position as its population grows and new products with improved technology are approved.

Globally, an aging population suffering from urinary incontinence complications, an unhealthy lifestyle, and the surging number of patients suffering from overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms are triggering market growth. In 2017, the U.S. generated the most revenue in the global urology imaging systems market, which was attributed to the increasing commonness of urological conditions and diagnostic imaging procedures (mainly in prostate and gynecology) and the growing utilization of portable imaging systems in diagnostic centers and clinics.

However, in emerging and developing nations, the availability of advanced imaging systems is very limited due to their high cost. Other factors restraining the market's growth include the increasing burden of urinary incontinence, an unstructured reimbursement scenario, little or no technological expansion, and a limited number of skilled healthcare professionals.

The dominance of multinational manufacturers with strong product portfolios in the developed regions

Major players in the urology imaging systems market are GE Healthcare (General Electric Company), Esaote SpA, Shenzhen Mindray Bio-Medical Electronics Co., Ltd., BK Medical Holding Company, Inc., Siemens Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Verathon Inc., LABORIE, Samsung, Echo-Son, ECM Echo Control Medical SAS, Ampronix, Toshiba Medical, Fujifilm Sonosite, Hitachi, Ltd., and others.

Top manufacturers are implementing growth strategies that include new technology advancements in urology imaging systems, new technology development in the 4D segment, and collaborations with diagnostic centers and clinics. For instance, in January 2018, Siemens Healthcare India showcased its new Acuson NX Ultrasound Series (Acuson NX3 2.0 and Acuson NX2 Elite ultrasound systems) at the 17th Asian-Oceanian Congress of Radiology 2018.
