The size of the Ultrasound devices market in North America was estimated at USD 1.81 Billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 2.31 Billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2022 to 2027. Well-established healthcare infrastructure and escalating adoption of home healthcare and remote patient monitoring are the prime factors pushing the market's growth in North America. In addition, the high adoption rate of advanced technology in the region is augmenting the demand for miniaturized user-friendly devices.
Doctors and physicians use ultrasound devices to assess internal parts and examine underlying diseases. The body structures are reflected through the output of sound waves, which are with high frequency. The ultrasound device can visualize internal organs; liver, kidneys, blood vessels, human fetus, heart.
The technological advancements in this field are expected to accelerate the growth rate of the North American ultrasound devices market. 3D and 4D imaging are a bloom for the ultrasound imaging market. It is more commonly resourceful in pregnant women cases in terms of checking the fetus's condition. The population growth and increase in resources rise in chronic diseases, and demand for minimally invasive procedures is growing for the ultrasound devices market. Diagnostic ultrasound devices are increasing in number in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. It is because pregnant women need ultrasound imaging very often to assess and check the fetus’s condition.
Raising awareness in people about early detection of diseases, frequent health check-ups, and being on track with health are growth-driven factors. Regular body check-ups are likely to increase market growth following a healthy lifestyle and understanding of health and fitness. The 3D and 4D imaging techniques are part of technological advancements, high in this current scenario. North America spends half of its economy on healthcare and infrastructure. The rise in public funding, nongovernmental organizations fund towards the growth of healthcare, and structure help this market.
The market restraints for the ultrasound devices market, which held back market growth, are as below. The high costs associated with the health check-ups and scanning procedures and inadequate reimbursement plans are back points for this market. The devices and instruments needed for setting up this equipment are also highly expensive. The lack of funds on time will hamper the market growth. The installation and setup costs are too high for these devices. Also, many skilled workers and human resources must maintain the surroundings and environment properly for the regular maintenance of devices and equipment. Else the goals are hard to achieve.
Impact of COVID-19 on the North America Ultrasound Devices market:
The pandemic has contrarily affected the ultrasound devices market, and this pattern is expected to proceed until December 2020. The changes in guidelines and rules are hampering the development of this market. The closing down of assembling offices because of lockdowns, interruptions in flexible chains, and enrolment challenges for clinical preliminaries have also affected the development of the ultrasound devices market. The ultrasound devices from manufacturers' end-to-end users are not appropriately processed during this pandemic. In addition, the travel bans and medical tourism ban issues are significant concerns in this pandemic situation. As these travel bans continue to expand longer, the awareness and introduction of new technologies and developments are not achieved as expected.
