Global Ultrasound Devices Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per the report published, the size of the global ultrasound devices market is projected to value USD 8.95 billion by 2027 and USD 6.79 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period. As there is a significant rise in demand for minimally encroaching diagnostic and therapeutic devices is primarily driving the growth of the market. Besides, the increasing adoption of ultrasound techniques for various treatment procedures fuels market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global ultrasound devices market:

The sudden eruption of the novel coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic has touched every corner of the world. Older adults and those with diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, hypertension, and other chronic diseases are more exposed to mild symptoms of COVID 19. The crisis has got a complicated and remarkable effect on the ultrasound devices market. In November 2020, GE Healthcare enlarged artificial intelligence (AI), digital, and imaging solutions and revealed a slate of new intelligently efficient solutions, including the LOGIQ E10 series, ultrasound systems. Due to the pandemic crisis, the ultrasound devices market has observed a negative impact. The demand for the usage of these devices is increasing enormously. Technology has become a frontline diagnostic tool for COVID 19 patients. The imposed guidelines concentrated on helping patients, hospital administrators in recognizing the potential risks of exhibiting to patients and controlling the ultrasound processes and clinic visits during the pandemic crisis.

Industry Overview:

Ultrasound devices are protruding diagnostic imaging devices capable of getting images of the body's internal organs. Various Healthcare professionals will use these ultrasound devices to conduct and examine the tests in diagnosis and therapeutic procedures. The critical nature of ultrasound devices has enlarged its scope to gynecological, cardiac, urological, cerebrovascular, abdominal, and breast examinations. In addition, smaller versions of these devices have led to their application in point-of-care settings. As there is a significant rise in medical tourism is likely to provide plenty of opportunities for the ultrasound devices market to expand.

The screening of ultrasound is considered a standard for fetal screening globally. Thus, the rising birth rates and in-vitro fertilization treatment rates add to the demand for sonography devices. In addition to this, several organizations such as the American Cancer Society and Radiological Society of North America, Inc. recommend periodic mammographic screening to women aged above 40 years for detecting breast cancer. As a result, several new cases that were diagnosed with breast cancer are rising rapidly. Therefore, the usage of 3D ultrasound and 4D ultrasound is increasing in breast cancer screening. It provides better visualization of the coronal plane in breasts with dense tissues, recommended by the government and health agencies.


Growing demand for ultrasound diagnostic imaging procedures and increasing investments and funds for research and development accelerates the global ultrasound devices market.

Technological developments, medical reimbursements, growing awareness for early disease detection, and colossal healthcare expenditure are estimated to propel market growth further. In addition, Y-O-Y growth in the birth rate across the world is estimated to accelerate the need for more ultrasound devices during the forecast period. According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the total number of births in the United States is 3,978,497 in 2016. Moreover, the birth rate in the U.S. was 12.4 births per 1,000 population.

The accentuating number of pregnancies and an increasing number of childbirths every year are factors responsible for ultrasound devices market growth. Additionally, the growing requirement for minimally invasive is another significant factor boosting the market growth. The minimally invasive procedures cause low pain and involve less stay in the hospital, and the significance of these methods is snowballing.

The escalating number of healthcare providers, rising funds and investments for research and developments in ultrasound imaging, and the increasing number of chronic diseases are expected to expand the market size in the near future.  The advanced and inventive technologies resulted in the state-of-the-art medical devices industry. The medical device manufacturers are focusing on emerging high-quality images, which is expected to drive market growth. In addition, the flourishing number of hospitals ensuring demand for ultrasound imaging infrastructure augments the market development.


Lack of awareness among the people and scarcity of expert sonography professionals for ultrasound devices hamper the market. In addition, the high cost of ultrasound devices, strict government rules, and regulations are obstructing market growth to some extent.

The latest occurrence of the product recall in the ultrasound devices market had posed a significant challenge. For instance, in May 2020, Koninklijke Philips N.V was given a class II product recall for the S83 compact by the U.S FDA. The product recall initiation was due to the defective auto cool function of the Transoesophageal transducer that can harm the patient while examining.
