Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases Driving Ultrasound Device Market

The global ultrasound device market is projected to advance at a considerable rate in the coming years, which is attributed to the surging geriatric population, rising healthcare cost, technological advancements in ultrasound devices, increasing prevalence of chronic and lifestyle associated diseases, and rising demand for minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. Ultrasound devices are utilized for therapeutic and diagnostic applications. In terms of display, the market is bifurcated into colored display and black and white display. The colored display is expected to account for the major share of the market in the near future.

When technology is taken into consideration, the ultrasound device market is divided into high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), 2D, extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy, 3D and 4D, and doppler. Out of these, the 2D division dominated the market in the past and is further predicted to account for the major share of the market in the coming years, as it is the conventional ultrasound scanning technology. The HIFU division is expected to grow at the fastest pace in the coming years. The technology is utilized for treating a single tumor or a part of a large tumor.

Another primary driving factor of the ultrasound device market is the growing requirement for minimally invasive techniques. Body is cut minimally or a device is invaded during a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure is performed under the guidance of ultrasound for visualizing organs or tissues. Ultrasound is further utilized in interventional radiology for the guidance of biopsy to help in fluid management. An ultrasound guided procedure includes collecting fluids by needle aspiration and cystiological or tissue sampling. Thus, the demand for ultrasound devices is rising because of increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures.    

A key trend being observed in the ultrasound device market is the miniaturization and development of devices for point of care. The demand for point of care testing is rising because of the growing need for integrated and portable devices. Point of care testing aids in performing tests close to the patient and further provides immediate results. In addition, the miniaturization of ultrasound devices has risen because of their application in emergency care for speedy and accurate diagnosis. Miniaturized wearable ultrasonic diathermy device is used for therapeutic treatment.
