COVID-19 Impact : Our team has been closely monitoring the current developments to identify the potential impact of COVID-19 on stakeholders and business processes across the value chain of industries. A special section about COVID-19 will be covered with the report to help companies in defining sustainable strategies.

Ultrasound Market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to increasing demand for imaging devices for diagnostics applications. An ultrasound device is a medical imaging device, which uses high-frequency waves to visualize the internal organs of the body such as blood vessels, kidney, liver, human foetus, heart, etc. This market is gaining momentum, owing to the increase in the number of hospitals and adoption of technologically advanced devices, which can serve the purpose for both diagnostics and therapeutics. Moreover, the cumulative prevalence of cancer is driving the demand for early detections and minimization of expenses. According to the Cancer Research Institute (CRI), there were approximately 17 million new cases of cancer globally, as of 2017, which is also fueling the demand for ultrasound devices.

Segment Analysis

The ultrasound device market has been segmented into product type, device display, portability, and application. Based on product type, the market has been divided into diagnostic and therapeutic. The diagnostic product type segment can be further divided into 2D ultrasound, 3D/4D ultrasound, and Doppler ultrasound. The therapeutic segment can be further divided into shockwave lithotripsy and focused ultrasound. The growth of the ultrasound device market can be attributed to its advanced technology and increased efficacy.
