The U.S. ultrasound devices market size was estimated at USD 2.55 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.26% from 2024 to 2030. Factors such as aging population, advancing technologies, changing patient care strategies, and evolving epidemiological patterns, are dominating the US market. Furthermore, the increasing incidence of chronic diseases such as breast cancer, cardiovascular disorders, and neurological diseases, has created a high demand for imaging devices including ultrasound.

U.S. Ultrasound Devices market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

U.S. accounted for 26% of the global ultrasound devices market in 2023. The growing awareness about the safety and diagnostic efficiency of ultrasound devices among healthcare providers has contributed to their rising adoption. The country has well-established medical codes, payment processes, and coverage policies for ultrasound services in hospitals, clinics, & imaging centers. In addition, reimbursements are provided for the use of ultrasound by general practitioners and family physicians at their offices. This has contributed highly to the rising number of ultrasound procedures in the U.S. Furthermore, the growing acceptance of mobile ultrasound devices is expected to boost the market growth.

Rapid technological advancements in ultrasound systems are enhancing the diagnosis and treatment of several diseases. Growing demand for advancements in imaging devices, and minimally invasive treatments, including 3D & 4D image detailing, accelerated processing speed, automated workflow, and Point-of-Care (PoC) solutions, are expected to boost the adoption of such technologies during the forecast period. The demand for early diagnosis is increasing, thus, leading to a large number of patients opting for PoC ultrasound devices to obtain instant results.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The industry is fragmented with several key players actively participating in it. Recent product launches and ongoing partnerships between market players and governments are highly benefitting the industry. In the U.S., the installed base of ultrasound units has significantly increased over the years. In addition, the rising demand for minimally invasive surgery and technological advancements in ultrasound imaging technology are key factors driving the market.

U.S. Ultrasound Devices Market Concentration & Characteristics

Frequent product launches that offer improved imaging, workflow, & ergonomic capabilities are anticipated to drive the industry growth. Major players are investing in several R&D activities to develop technologically advanced products. For instance, in July 2023, FUJIFILM SonoSite, Inc., launched Sonosite ST which has a 21-inch touchscreen with an all-touch interface, a 10" by 7.5" image area, automated setting optimization for each exam type, and Auto Steep Needle Profiling (SNP).

Several market players are acquiring smaller players to strengthen their market position. This strategy enables companies to increase their capabilities, expand their product portfolios, and improve their competencies. For instance, in July 2022, CANON MEDICAL SYSTEMS CORPORATION announced the acquisition of NXC Imaging, a medical devices and service provider headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The regulatory authorities regulate and evaluate the safety & biocompatibility of medical devices as a part of premarket submissions. An increasing number of government initiatives to strengthen the installed base of ultrasound devices from standalone units to low-cost portable devices is expected to boost the market. Furthermore, reimbursement policy in the U.S. is favorable for providers and patients in comparison to other nations.

Portability Insights

The cart/trolley segment dominated the market with a share of 67.93% in 2023 owing to their wide usage in 3D & 4D procedures. These trolleys are easy to transport to the patient's location, such as the ICU or emergency department. In addition, it helps in rapid diagnosis, and decision-making, and also contributes to better patient recovery with satisfaction.

The handheld segment is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period owing to its portability, ease of use, & compact nature. It is expected to witness a surge in demand, especially in point-of-care, home care, and emergency care settings. This advanced wireless transducer technology is also compatible with smartphones. Factors as such are expected to boost the segment’s growth in the upcoming years.

Product Insights

The diagnostic ultrasound devices segment dominated the market with a share of 84.82% in 2023 owing to the wide range of applications in obstetrics, cardiology, and oncology. Moreover, the technological advancements and growing prevalence of several lifestyle-related disorders are projected to surge the diagnostic ultrasound devices demand. In addition, the government is focusing on the early diagnosis of diseases, which has further led to an increased adoption of these devices.

The therapeutic ultrasound devices segment is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period. In therapeutic ultrasound, energy is deposited in tissue to induce a wide range of biological effects. The segment is divided into two categories- high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), and extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL).HIFU is used for cosmetic treatment for skin tightening, and it is a non-invasive and painless replacement for facelifts. Whereas, the ESWL offers advantages such as minimally invasive technique, shorter hospital stays, and minimum postoperative follow-up time.

Application Insights

The radiology segment dominated the market with a share of 22.23% in 2023. A rising number of product launches and increasing adoption of ultrasound devices for general imaging are projected to surge segment growth during the forecast period. Various organizations are being established based on radiology to increase its awareness & adoption. The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) is a nonprofit organization that provides educational resources, such as physician’s certifications, and radiology conferences is expected to increase the general population’s knowledge of radiology. These factors are projected to further enhance the segment’s growth.

The obstetrics/gynecology segment is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period owing to its feature of providing valuable information about fetal health, such as its age, position, and placental location. Furthermore, a healthy woman receives at least two ultrasound scans during pregnancy to assess fetal growth. Increasing birth rates, rising awareness about monitoring fetal health regularly, along with reimbursement policies are expected to boost the segment in the upcoming years.

End-use Insights

The hospitals segment dominated the market with a share of 39.97% in 2023. The number and type of ultrasound studies performed at the hospital facility are higher than any other end users. Therefore, the higher utilization rate of ultrasound, coupled with a large patient base, has contributed to this segment’s largest market share. On the other hand, ultrasound has become a key diagnostic tool during emergency visits & bedside monitoring. This is expected to further boost the market growth.
