This report studies the global Ultrasound market status and forecast, categorizes the global Ultrasound market size (value & volume) by key players, type, application, and region. This report focuses on the top players in North America, Europe, China, Japan, Southeast Asia India and Other regions (Middle East & Africa, Central & South America).
Ultrasound is sound waves with frequencies higher than the upper audible limit of human hearing. Ultrasound is no different from 'normal' (audible) sound in its physical properties, except in that humans cannot hear it. This limit varies from person to person and is approximately 20 kilohertz (20,000 hertz) in healthy, young adults. Ultrasound devices operate with frequencies from 20 kHz up to several gigahertz.
At present, the Mexican ultrasound equipment market is less high-end products, the overall price is located in the low-end, with the improvement of medical conditions and NAFTA implementation, more and more American manufacturing equipment will flow into the Mexican market. Ultrasound equipment from China is cheap, but because of the higher import tariffs on the local government, there is not much competitive advantage in Mexico.
Compared to the old generation of 2D ultrasound devices, 3D technology has added a dimension of depth, and 4D a dimension of depth and time. 3D and 4D ultrasound devices are becoming increasingly popular in Eastern Europe, especially in cardiology and obn ultrasound. The market for 3D and 4D is however not yet saturated there, mainly due to financial constraints. In other regions, such as Scandinavia, the reason for low market penetration of 3D/4D ultrasound is lack of acceptance among doctors. Research shows that doctors in Scandinavia do not consider 3D/4D ultrasound to provide more clinical value during diagnosis and are therefore quite reluctant. Convertors of images in older generation ultrasound units were based on hardware, which was built in the ultrasound device. The new generation uses external computers, which perform the scan conversion. This has resulted in an increase of calculation power of ultrasound devices and has led to major improvements in quality.
Currently, the demand for handheld ultrasound devices is on the rise owing to the shifting trend towards home healthcare and remote patient monitoring to reduce hospitalization cost.
The global Ultrasound market is valued at 13,255 million US$ in 2017 and is expected to reach 17,695 million US$ by the end of 2023, growing at a CAGR of 4.93% between 2017 and 2023. By regions, Asia-Pacific was the largest consumption area with the value of 3,796 million USD in 2017.
