The global bladder scanner market size was valued at USD 140.3 million in 2023, driven by the rising prevalence of urological diseases like urinary tract infections and urinary incontinence across the globe. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2024-2032, with the values likely to rise from USD 148 million in 2024 to USD 227.1 million by 2032.
A bladder scanner is a portable diagnostic tool used to perform non-invasive and quick bladder scan. It is mostly done to detect health issues like urinary tract infections, VUR (vesicoureteral reflux, where the urine flows back from bladder to kidney), incomplete bladder emptying, urinary incontinence and swelling. The device is equipped with an ultrasound probe, and a transducer, which reflects sound waves from patient’s bladder into the scanner. The data is then transferred to the computer for calculating the bladder volume.
With the incidence of urological issues like urinary incontinence, vesicoureteral reflux, bladder cancer, and urinary tract infections, the need for diagnostics to treat and prevent the diseases effectively has increased. Cystoscopy serves as an effective tool to analyze any abnormality in the bladder. It is used to detect lesions and other pathologies in the bladder. When compared to traditional methods, bladder scanning is a painless and non-invasive method that eliminates the risk associated with catheterization. Hence, the bladder scanner market demand has seen a substantial upswing in recent years.
In the contemporary age, automation, precision, affordability, and time management have been the key areas of interest for any scientist designing a new product. Therefore, portable, and handheld bladder scanners have emerged in the market. With artificial intelligence driven features, handheld devices can offer great assistance in various daily urologic scenarios, which include upper as well as lower urinary tracts. Vscan™ by GE Healthcare is enabled with an application that offers edge-detection algorithm that suggests and automatically places measure calipers to facilitate a view from transverse and sagittal plane.
Bladder scanners find its utility in urological as well as obstetrics-gynecological domain. EchoNous bladder scanner combines a superlative probe design with a Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) algorithm, making it suitable to check the bladder volume in pregnant as well as post-partum patients. As technology continues to evolve, we can expect new technologies designed to make patient treatment and efficient, resulting in positive bladder scanner market value in the forecast period.

Around 423 million people in the world experience urinary incontinence in some form or another. Overflow urinary incontinence is often linked to neurologic diseases like spinal cord injuries and diabetes. In addition, bladder cancer is the 10th most commonly occurring cancer working. Therefore, burden of cancer combined with the incidence of diabetes, urinary tract infections, chronic kidney diseases are key drivers for bladder scanner market growth.
Due to the presence of high expenditure on healthcare research and development, the United States is expected to contribute significantly to the overall bladder scanner market share. This can be attributed to the rising prevalence of urological disorders and bladder cancer cases. The fastest growth can be observed in the Asia Pacific region as they contribute to the world’s largest geriatric population.
In addition, the rising number of pregnancies will also require bladder scanners. There has been significant emphasis on providing awareness about diagnostics for early detection of chronic diseases, which will aid the growth in the forecast period.
