Market Dynamics

Ultrasound devices market growth is driven by several factors such as new technological advancements in the healthcare sector, rising chronic and ulcer cases, and an increasingly elderly population.     

The increasing government and private funding for R&D in ultrasound imaging will drive the market growth    

The increasing government and private funding for R&D in ultrasound imaging, the rising number of healthcare providers, technological advancements, and increasing incidences of chronic diseases are the major factors propelling the growth of the ultrasound devices market.

For instance, in September 2020, Philips Healthcare introduced the latest addition of dedicated cardiovascular ultrasound solutions, the Affiniti CVx, to support the cardiology departments in delivering better care to more patients with increased efficiency and throughput. Also, the shrinkage in the size of ultrasound devices has given the market a slight boost, if not a significant one. The devices have now become handy, giving the healthcare facilities a chance to replace old heavy and technologically deemed devices with small and more advanced devices. With the reduction in the size of these devices, the problem of storage has also been resolved, enabling the facilities to operate more efficiently with a greater number of devices.

The burden of chronic disease is rapidly increasing all around the world, currently affecting more than 14 million people around the world. For instance, in 2018, the University of California, San Francisco, stated that nearly 750,000 patients per year in the United States and an estimated 2 million patients worldwide are affected by kidney failure. The prevalence of various other chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular, neurological, and cancer, is becoming a major concern for the healthcare sectors across the world. According to a study published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in September 2018, cancer accounted for 9.6 million deaths 2018 worldwide. Globally, one in six deaths occurs due to cancer, and it is the second leading cause of death worldwide.

Also, Dementia Australia states that approximately 459,000 Australians were living with dementia in 2020, and almost 1.6 million Australians were involved in its center for care. It is estimated that the number of people with dementia is expected to upsurge to 1.1 million by 2058, and dementia will become the second leading cause of death in the country in the next five years. Focused ultrasound is the most preferred alternative to medicines for the treatment of dementia, as it is an early-stage, non-invasive, and therapeutic technology that has shown potential in improving the quality of life and decreasing the cost. Thus, the increased occurrence of the disorder and the demand for the early detection of disease, and minimization of the cost of treatment are expected to increase the adoption of these ultrasound imaging devices.

Stringent regulations by the governments are likely to hamper the market growth  

However, stringent regulations by the governments regarding the operational concerns and approval of new products, along with the shortage of skilled labor to handle advanced machines, will hamper the growth of the market in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The pandemic has also had a complex and unprecedented effect on the ultrasound device market. Healthcare providers are deploying the potential of ultrasound diagnosis, primarily for point-of-care (POC) applications, for the triage, monitoring, and diagnosis of COVID-19 patients. As per an article published on BioMed Central Ltd in June 2020, lung ultrasound (LUS) has shown superior sensitivity compared to X-ray in patients with acute respiratory failure, and LUS may be a more feasible and practical alternative. Also, in Italy, LUS has been proposed as an alternative to CT scans for suspected cases of COVID-19.

In November 2020, GE Healthcare expanded AI, digital, and imaging solutions and unveiled a slate of new intelligently efficient solutions that include the LOGIQ E10 Series, ultrasound systems that harness artificial intelligence (AI) technology to drive workflow productivity during the COVID-19 crisis.  

Segment Analysis

The stationary ultrasound segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2030)        

The stationary ultrasound segment is expected to hold a significant market share due to the growing adoption of these systems across major markets due to their increased usage in acute care settings and emergency care in hospitals and healthcare institutions. Also, these ultrasound systems have been undergoing major technological transformations since the last decade, which is leading to the increasing application of these ultrasound systems. For instance, in May 2020, Philips received the United States Food and Drug Administration approval for its wide range of ultrasound solutions that includes EPIQ series, Affiniti series, Lumify, CX50, and Sparq diagnostic ultrasound systems for the management of COVID-19-related lung and cardiac complications. Besides, continuous technological advances and the increasing geriatric population around the globe are leading to the increased incidences of various chronic diseases, as the geriatric population is more susceptible to chronic diseases, which are the factors driving the market growth in the forecast period.

Geographical Analysis

North America region holds the largest market share of the global ultrasound devices market

North America is expected to dominate the overall ultrasound devices market in the forecast period. The factor responsible for the growth of the North American ultrasound market is the government and private funding for R&D in ultrasound imaging and rising incidences of chronic diseases. According to the National Health Council, by the end of 2020, chronic diseases will affect approximately 157 million Americans, with 81 million having multiple conditions. About half of all adults in America have a chronic condition, and approximately 8% of children aged 5 to 17 years were reported by their parents to have limited activities due to at least one chronic disease or disability during that year. According to the study, this number will continue to increase, and more people will suffer from not just one chronic illness but multiple ones, such as diabetes, heart diseases, neurological disorders, and cancer. Also, in February 2019, the American College of Cardiology had reported that by the end of 2019, 10, 55,000 individuals would suffer from coronary events, including 720,000 new and 335,000 recurrent coronary events.

Owing to the high prevalence of the diseases, this region has become the hub of the major players. Players have been doing product development in this region to grow. For instance, in April 2019, Canon Medical USA Inc. launched the Aplio a-series, a new line of ultrasound systems delivering high performance for multiple clinical uses at an affordable price point. Also, rising healthcare expenditure, growing awareness for various diagnostic procedures, and favorable reimbursement policies are expected to fuel the market growth in this region.
