Market Overview:
According to a new report by IMIR Market Research on Global the market for Ultrasound Devices was valued at approximately USD 9.79 billion in 2023. Over the course of the forecast period (2024–2031), it is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.24%, reaching a valuation of USD 13.54 billion by 2031.

The increasing prevalence of chronic and lifestyle illnesses, together with the growing use of ultrasound equipment for diagnostic imaging and therapy, is expected to fuel market expansion. Increased demand for minimally invasive procedures and regular advancements in ultrasound imaging technology are additional factors impacting market growth. Compared to other diagnostic imaging technologies, ultrasound is a more cost-effective and speedier diagnostic tool in the medical imaging field. Furthermore, it is safer than other imaging technologies because it doesn't use magnetic fields or ionizing radiation.

The ultrasonic medical gadget has several applications in both therapy and diagnosis. The use of ultrasound for some medical conditions, such as cardiology and oncology, has become more common. The market is anticipated to rise as a result of the creation of wireless transducers, app-based ultrasound technology, laparoscopic ultrasound, fusion with CT/MR, and an increase in the uses of ultrasound devices in shear wave elastography and 3D imaging. For example, KronosMD, INC., a part of Kronos Advanced Technologies Inc., announced in March 2023 that it had acquired all present and future rights to all patents and properties pertaining to their revolutionary 3D ultrasonic dental imaging and diagnostic equipment.

The goal of the deal is to accelerate the manufacturing of the S-WAVE ultrasonic imaging equipment and system as it gets closer to completion. Radiology is the current area of focus for manufacturers looking to increase their product applications. Even though 4-DUS imaging and 3-D/4-D volume imaging are utilized to see heart wall motions in obstetrics and gynecology, radiologists still perform tests using 2-D ultrasound imaging. Improved image quality and workflow, as well as rising awareness of radiation dose concerns with other imaging modalities, have piqued the interest of manufacturers and scientists in the industry. In the developing field of fusion imaging, real-time ultrasound imaging can play a significant role.

The radiology industry needs to establish ultrasonic fusion imaging more firmly because radiologists tend to choose modalities like CT and MRI. Because of increased worries about radiation exposure and current advancements in ultrasonic imaging technology, radiologists are focusing more on the market. The COVID-19 epidemic has caused a number of challenges for the healthcare industry. Ultrasound device demand was inconsistent during the pandemic due to delayed installations and manufacturers' focus on providing COVID-critical devices. However, because of its efficiency, portability, speed, and ease of use in treating patients in congested hospitals who required critical care, handheld ultrasound machines were in high demand.
