Ultrasound Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global ultrasound market size is estimated to be worth USD 8.45 billion by 2027 from USD 5.97 billion in 2022, showcasing a CAGR of 7.2% from 2022 to 2027.

Ultrasound technologies are predicted to grow in popularity in disease management throughout the forecast period because they are cost-effective, safer, and allow for early detection and treatment of target diseases.


YOY rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, gallstones, and fatty liver disease, among others, and high healthcare costs propel the global ultrasound market growth.

According to the statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 41 million people die due to noncommunicable diseases, accounting for 74% of overall deaths worldwide. Portable ultrasound equipment is becoming more common, as they are now employed in emergency departments and during anesthetic administration. The portable ultrasound market has room to develop pre-medicine. Ambulances already well-equipped may now carry a space-saving portable ultrasound scanner that allows paramedics to send images to hospitals in advance, allowing them to provide faster treatment during a medical emergency. Several major market players are concentrating on R&D to develop a stable and safe formulation. For the past several years, the market has been paying attention to technical advancements on a large scale. The rising prevalence of target diseases and conditions will accelerate the adoption of efficient diagnostic and treatment approaches.

Diagnostic ultrasound devices are increasing in number in obstetrics and gynecology and are further estimated to drive growth for the global ultrasound market.

The need for ultrasound is growing significantly owing to pregnant women needing ultrasound imaging to assess and check the fetus's condition. In addition, growing awareness in people regarding the early detection of diseases, frequent health check-ups, and being on track with health are favoring the ultrasound market. The usage of ultrasound has also increased as people become more aware of having a healthy lifestyle and fitness and understand the significance of regular body check-ups.

Technological advancements are further boosting the ultrasound market growth.

Manufacturers are making devices smaller and more portable as technology advances, but they also add newer technologies such as 3D and 4D imaging. The 3D and 4D imaging techniques are part of technological advancements, which are high in this current scenario. The research activities in human health and the field also lead to many positive trends helping the market grow. The rise in public funding, nongovernmorganizations'ations funds towards the growth of healthcare, and the structure help this market. Government initiatives such as creating health plans, health check-ups, and camps, allowing people to know more about the need for early diagnosis of disease and its prevention, are also a growth factor for this market.


However, the expansion of the ultrasound market is anticipated to be restrained by increased demand for refurbished medical imaging devices and a shortage of skilled labor to handle the equipment. In addition, the high cost of ultrasound equipment is projected to limit the use of ultrasound imaging devices and restrict the growth global ultrasound market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 impact on the global ultrasound market: 

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on medical device businesses in the ultrasound devices business is projected to be moderate. The global ultrasound market's development has been slowed by the closure of production facilities owing to lockdowns, supply chain disruptions, and recruiting problems for clinical trials. Ultrasound is one of the many types of medical imaging technologies available. The body's interior organs are seen using high-frequency sound waves in an ultrasound device. The industries have suffered a setback due to the lockdown, which has resulted in a drop in manufacturing and a substantial decrease in patient flow. On the other hand, healthcare practitioners are exploiting the potential of ultrasound diagnostic, primarily for point-of-care (POC) applications, for the triage, monitoring, and diagnosis of COVID-19 patients. As of this, the global Ultrasound market has grown in coming years.
