Ultrasound systems utilize sound waves to produce pictures of internal organs of the body. It is widely used for clinical assessment and early detection of various kinds of diseases. In recent years ultrasound systems market has experienced a revolution owing to advancements in technologies; however, the market is in the mature stage. Introduction to 3D/4D ultrasound systems leads to steady growth of the market due to their advanced feature and effective functionalities. With the growing incidence and prevalence of various diseases and the rise in geriatric population, the market is expected to show significant opportunities in the near future. Moreover, the increase in patient awareness for early diagnosis of various diseases and the introduction to advance technologies like handheld ultrasound systems further contribute to the growth of the market. However, stringent regulatory scenarios and a lack of trained personnel hamper the growth of the market.
The ultrasound systems market is bifrucated on the basis of ergonomics, application, end-user and geography. In terms of ergonomic, the global market is segregated into portable ultrasound systems and on-platform ultrasound systems. The portable ultrasound systems segment is expected to expand at significant CAGR due to the growing preference for home healthcare and the rise in the adoption of point of care ultrasound systems. Moreover, this system limits the requirement of highly trained professionals, which contributes to the growth of the segment. On the basis of application, the market is classified into gynecology/obstetrics, cardiovascular, ophthalmic, urology, and others. On the basis of end-user, the market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, home healthcare, and others.
