Market Dynamics

Rising ultrasound imaging procedures

Ultrasound imaging is a widely adopted technique for assisting diagnosis and guiding treatment with wide applications such as obstetrics and cardiology. Also, ultrasound imaging is considered a safe procedure; it possesses the potential to produce a biological effect on the body. For example, ultrasound is the most widely used medical imaging method for viewing the foetus during pregnancy. Also, the utility of ultrasound imaging continues to expand beyond the conventional settings of cardiology, radiology, and obstetrics. However, ultrasound transducers, referred to as probes, have high chances for cross-contamination. For example, ultrasound probes have expanded beyond the conventional settings of radiology, cardiology, obstetrics, and vascular imaging. Additionally, point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is now widely utilized at the bedside throughout the hospitals and in the physician's office and clinics, standing as an essential tool for aiding diagnoses. With a high volume of ultrasound imaging procedures, demand for ultrasound probes is increased, placing patients and users at high risk for cross-contamination. Therefore, it is essential that all users of ultrasound be familiar with and utilize the appropriate methods for cleaning and reprocessing between examinations to comply with the guidelines and avoid placing patients and users at risk of contamination.

Future Trends of Ultrasound Probe Disinfection

With ultrasound probes being widely used for assisting diagnosis and guiding treatment in a broad range of medical applications, the form factor is changing rapidly. For example, ultrasound imaging is mostly based on hand-held probes connected to a bulky imaging system; it is now available in pocket-size handheld scanners. Additionally, ultrasound imaging is moving from 2D to 3D. Moreover, ultrasound is moving out of the hands of an expert sonographer and available for widespread use by clinicians and eventually by the general public, aiming for cost reduction and increased user-friendliness.

Market Segmentation

The instrument segment is further segregated as automated reprocessors, UV-C disinfectors, manual reprocessors/soaking stations, and ultrasound probe storage cabinets. The consumables segment is further bifurcated into formulations and detergents.  By disinfection process, the market is categorized into high-level disinfection and intermediate/low-level disinfection. By end user, the market is segregated as hospitals, diagnostic imaging centers, ambulatory care centers, and others. Geographically, the global ultrasound probe disinfection market is sub segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Based on product, the instruments segment accounts maximum share

According to the Association for Advancing Automation 2022 report, top competitive players consistently launch innovative products dominating the overall global ultrasound probe disinfection market growth during the forecast period of 2022-2028. For example, the ultrasound probe system developed by Interson is capable of delivering similar to a standard ultrasound probe instrument with a cost-effective factor. The probe offered by the product involves 3.5 MHz, 5.0 MHz, 7.5 MHz and 12MHz versions for use with multifaceted ultrasound applications. Through Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 2007, the applications of the probe are endless, with wide applications in the medical field involving military operations, OBGYN, urology, dermatology, and many others. Therefore, the technologically advanced ultrasound instrument product launched by the company accelerates demand among physicians’ bases, ultimately driving the overall global ultrasound probe disinfection market growth during the forecast period of 2022-2028.

Recent strategic developments in global ultrasound probe disinfection market

The global ultrasound probe disinfection market has undergone several significant developments, and a few of these have been mentioned below:

  • In April 2018, Nanosonics announced USFDA approval for an ultrasound disinfector for "trophon2", an ultrasound probe disinfection system. Trophon2 is a new software platform that is involved in allowing storage and retrieval of disinfection cycle data, allowing users to verify if a probe has been disinfected.
  • In May 2022, GERMITEC announced the completion of financing of US$10.6 million from leading French investors in the healthcare sector. The main objective of such a financing round is to launch an ambitious international commercial expansion plan aiming to transform a technologically-driven company into a leading sales company with an international footprint in strategic markets.
