Global Portable Ultrasound Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global portable ultrasound market size is estimated to be worth USD 6 billion by 2027 from USD 4.2 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period.

Portable Ultrasound Equipment refers to a device that uses ultrasound technology and is a type of medical ultrasound equipment that has a portable benefit over bigger ultrasound machines found in hospitals. Portable ultrasound equipment can be used in various disciplines, including emergency medical, critical care medicine, and musculoskeletal health. Sound waves are used in ultrasound imaging to create images of the inside of the body. It's used to find out what's causing discomfort, swelling, and infection in the body's internal organs and inspect a baby in pregnant women and newborns' brains and hips. It's also used to guide biopsies, detect cardiac problems, and measure heart attack damage. Because of their portability, portable ultrasound devices are being modified to satisfy growing commercial demands. These machines have several advantages, including decreasing the burden of patients having to wait hours for a checkup or transferring from one area to another where devices are accessible. Portable ultrasound equipment is frequently transferred from one procedure location to another.


The growing patient population base in lung diseases and lifestyle based disorders, increase of old people population, therapy techniques, growing market demand for minimum invasive diagnostic, collection of concerning people or belonging to a particular person or group of people are driving factors of the global portable ultrasound market. In addition, the increase of accident cases and tumors, common targeted diseases, high risk of surgical procedures for older adults also drive the market. 

Technological advancements, such as emergency medicine and primary care, drive the market growth, and increasing awareness about portable ultrasound will fuel market demand. In addition, the upcoming consumption of low power and charging technologies is likely to push the market boom.

Additionally, reduction of the cost of portable ultrasound devices can further fuel growth opportunities. The growth events like training programs and the rise in ambulatory and remote patient care infrastructure also create business potential. The strengthening of healthcare expertise by focusing on the healthcare business through divestment strategies, expanding companies’ capabilities through acquisitions focusing on innovations of products and technologies will support market growth in the coming years.


The strict government regulations, not having enough well-trained and skilled personnel, equipment costs are the restraints of the global portable ultrasound market. In addition, the rise in interest rates and insufficient public health coverage hinder the market growth. The high price also prevents the market from reaching its true potential.

The result in the availability of handheld or portable ultrasound poses a significant problem for the manufacturers who make the devices. However, these challenges can be addressed by providing training to the new users and continue the training support until the initial sale is made.

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

Novel Coronavirus is a worldwide pandemic with a growing number of confirmed cases and deaths. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost all the countries globally, which disrupted the economies in various ways. Due to lockdown constraints, the treatment procedures have been canceled or postponed unless it is an emergency. Growing demand for telemedicine and tele-ultrasound techniques during these tough times, the demand for portable ultrasound devices has increased tremendously. Government organizations invested huge amounts on these platforms to lower the risk of COVID 19. Moreover, wireless handheld ultrasound presents a fast diagnosis and delivers contactless diagnosis procedures, which reduces the transmission rate of the virus. This surged the usage of these devices. Healthcare providers are using ultrasound systems for organizing, monitoring, and diagnosis of COVID-19 patients. This led the market shares to grow very high during the pandemic.
