Hardware complications frequently occur in ultrasound devices, especially the complications found in the imaging machine. These issues can halt the work and disturb the work progress. Sometimes the only way to resume work is to replace the piece of hardware.
Some degree of training and prior medical knowledge is necessary for properly utilising the equipment to scan the body part. The lack of professionals has been a major challenge for the growth of the global ultrasound equipment industry.
The ultrasound equipment is advancing in technology, which is affecting the price to rise significantly. Small healthcare providers are more likely to purchase refurbished equipment as the new equipment’s cost can be hefty to afford.
The ultrasound equipment market can be analysed on the basis of technology, device display, probability, applications, end uses, and major regions.
Based on technology, the market can be segmented into therapeutic and diagnostic ultrasound. Among these, the therapeutic ultrasound segment can be divided further into extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) and high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). On the other hand, the diagnostic ultrasound can be further divided into 2D, 3D, 4D ultrasound, and doppler ultrasound.
By device display, the market can be segmented into colour ultrasound and black and white ultrasound. Based on probability, the market segments include point-of-care (POC) ultrasound systems, trolley/cart-based ultrasound systems, and compact/handheld ultrasound systems.
Based on application, the market segments include radiology/general imaging, obstetrics/gynaecology, cardiology, urology, vascular, orthopaedic and musculoskeletal, and pain management, among others.
The end-users in the market include maternity centres, hospitals, ambulatory care centres, surgical and diagnostic centres, research and academics, among others. The regional markets include Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.
The extensive EMR report provides a detailed assessment of the market by following the Porter's five forces model and provides a SWOT analysis. The market report offers a detailed analysis of the leading companies in the ultrasound equipment industry. It also covers their competitive landscape and the latest developments including mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans.

The ultrasound equipment technology has developed significantly and is being applied in a broad spectrum of conditions, providing higher definition images. With the pandemic shaking the healthcare infrastructure, the importance of early diagnosis has grown, propelling the ultrasound equipment market development.
The diagnostic ultrasound sends sound waves in the body and records the feedback to create an image of the structure within the body. It is the most common method of ultrasound diagnosis and is very helpful in identifying abnormalities for treatment. It is likely to improve the value of the ultrasound equipment market forecast. There are further divisions in this segment, including 2D ultrasound, Doppler ultrasound, and 3D and 4D ultrasound.
The therapeutic ultrasound technology is applied in physiotherapy to relieve pain and accelerate healing of tissues. The therapeutic ultrasound treatment can treat sports injuries and joint pain. This segment can be further divided into high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL). The increasing adoption of ultrasound technologies for multiple applications can enhance the market size.
By device display, the segments include colour ultrasound and black and white ultrasound. The colour display segment in the market will grow faster as it helps quantitatively compare regions due to the increased image quality. The black and white ultrasound display is generally used to observe a developing foetus, muscles and tendons, and internal organs.

Based on probability, the market can be segmented into trolley/cart-based ultrasound systems, point-of-care (POC), compact/handheld ultrasound systems. The trolley/cart-based ultrasound system segment is expected to account for a significant share of the market. It is widely being adopted by medical service providers and hospitals for emergency situations. The compact/handheld segment is projecting the most growth potential due to the flexibility they provide with diagnosis and instant results.
Many major manufacturers have started developing and delivering the equipment to the market. The handheld and portable are much more affordable than the standard machines and are way less bulky. This makes it practical for independent practitioners, physicians, and specialists to buy.
With the increasing prevalence of trained professionals, the market for this segment is expected to proliferate. Point-of-care ultrasound is a diagnosis performed by physicians or specialists at the bedside, ambulance, or wherever the patient is. It is standard practice for emergency situations, obstetric, musculoskeletal treatment, and other situations where the patient may be unable to move.
The segments of applications in the market include radiology/general imaging, obstetrics/gynaecology, cardiology, urology, vascular, orthopaedic, musculoskeletal, and pain management, among others. Ultrasound equipment in radiology/general imaging takes multiple images of internal body parts, allowing doctors to analyse and treat the disease. The imaging is done several times, allowing proper treatment and medicine administration planning.
The growing cases of chronic diseases is expected to increase the demand for imaging while propelling the market growth.
