The global Ultrasound Device Market size was valued at USD 6,833.0 million in 2015. The rising demand for minimally invasive diagnostic as well as therapeutic devices is primarily driving the growth of the market. Additionally, the increasing adoption of ultrasound technique for the treatment of prostate cancer and kidney stones is a factor augmenting market growth.
Ultrasound screening is considered as a gold standard for fetal screening globally. Thus, the rising birth rates and in-vitro fertilization treatment rates are fueling the demand for sonography devices. In addition, several organizations such as American Cancer Society and Radiological Society of North America, Inc. recommend periodic mammographic screening to women aged above 40 years for the detection of breast cancer. As a result, a number of new cases diagnosed with breast cancer are rapidly rising. 3D/4D ultrasound is increasingly used in breast cancer screening as it provides better visualization of the coronal plane in breasts having dense tissues. Therefore, recommendations by the government and health agencies are positively affecting the market growth.
