Global Ultrasound Equipment Market 2015-2019: Rise in Number of MI Diagnostic Procedures with GE Healthcare, Phillips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare & Toshiba Medical Systems Dominating

The Global Ultrasound Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 5.79% over the period 2014-2019

Ultrasound equipment are used to examine organs using high-frequency sound waves. Ultrasound systems are extensively used by cardiologists, radiologists, surgeons, obstetricians, and many other healthcare professionals as they are considered to be safer than most other imaging techniques. Ultrasound equipment provide healthcare professionals with vital health-related information. They are used to detect and diagnose various diseases and medical conditions such as tumors and gynecological problems. They are also used to examine fetuses.

The Global Ultrasound Equipment market is divided into two segments based on product type: Portable Ultrasound Equipment and Static Ultrasound Equipment.

An increase in the demand for portable ultrasound equipment is one of the key trends upcoming in the market. This equipment is more efficient and can be moved easily, unlike traditional ultrasound equipment. Many vendors are developing portable ultrasound equipment to increase their market shares.

According to the report, increased use of ultrasound equipment is one of the major drivers of this market. Patients and healthcare professionals opt for minimally invasive procedures to diagnose chronic diseases as this equipment causes minimal to no pain and does not pose the risk of infection.

Further, the report states that the complications involved in the use of 4D ultrasound imaging equipment is one of the major challenges that the market faces. Moreover, 4D ultrasound equipment is more expensive than 3D ultrasound equipment, and this affects their sales.
