Global Ultrasound Market

Date: 2016-09-12

Ultrasound is a type of imaging. It uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body. Health care professionals use it to view the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, liver, and other organs. During pregnancy, doctors use ultrasound to view the fetus. Unlike x-rays, ultrasound does not expose you to radiation.

During an ultrasound test, you lie on a table. A special technician or doctor moves a device called a transducer over part of your body. The transducer sends out sound waves, which bounce off the tissues inside your body. The transducer also captures the waves that bounce back. The ultrasound machine creates images from the sound waves.

Ultrasound is used in many different fields. Ultrasonic devices are used to detect objects and measure distances. Ultrasound imaging or sonography is often used in medicine. In the nondestructive testing of products and structures, ultrasound is used to detect invisible flaws. Industrially, ultrasound is used for cleaning, mixing, and to accelerate chemical processes. Animals such as bats and porpoises use ultrasound for locating prey and obstacles. Scientists are also studying ultrasound using graphene diaphragms as a method of communication. Among them, medicine accounted for largest share in the application areas in 2015, and will remain in the next few years. On the basis of clinical application, ultrasound market is categorized into radiology/general imaging, cardiology, OB/GYN, vascular, urology, and other applications (such as anesthesiology, emergency medicine, and breast imaging). Cardiology application is expected to be the fastest growing segment during forecast period owing to rising incidence of cardiac diseases, technological advancements in cardiac ultrasound, and rapid growth in geriatric population across the globe.

The global ultrasound market was valued at USD 7.3 billion in 2015, and is estimated to reach USD 9.2 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2016 to 2020.
