Global 3D/4D Ultrasound Equipment Market 2017-2021

About 3D/4D Ultrasound Equipment

Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound equipment help in scanning tissues from different angles. 3D ultrasound imaging, an advanced and quicker form of two-dimensional (2D) ultrasound, collects volume data. High-speed computing software integrates this information to create a 3D image. Four- dimensional (4D) ultrasound is the updated version 3D ultrasound images in rapid succession. Here the fourth dimension is time, which adds movement and creates most realistic moving representation of all images. 4D ultrasound imaging is 3D ultrasound in motion. The volume data can be stored for later review, screening, and detailed diagnosis by experts.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global 3D/4D ultrasound equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 7.03% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global 3D/4D Ultrasound Equipment Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global 3D/4D ultrasound equipment market: GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Toshiba Medical Systems, Siemens Healthineers, and Shenzhen Mindray Bio-Medical Electronics.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ALPINION MEDICAL SYSTEMS, Analogic, Carestream Health, CHISON, ContextVision, Delphinus Medical Technologies, Esaote, MedGyn, FUJIFILM SonoSite, Samsung Medison, SonoStar, TELEMED Medical Systems, and TOMTEC IMAGING SYSTEMS.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing demand for portable 3D/4D ultrasound equipment. The use of portable 3D/4D ultrasound equipment is growing among tend-user's due to the benefits over static equipment. The benefits include better, fast, and accurate disease diagnosis, reduced diagnosis costs, and promote higher adoption of advanced diagnosis training. The demand for portable ultrasound equipment is rising especially in gynecology and dental science.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is wide applications of 3D/4D ultrasound. The usage of ultrasound devices is common and essential in key areas such as cardiology, maternity, gynecology (obstetric ultrasound), and urology. It is also used for cerebrovascular examination, breast examination, and pediatric and operational review during the emergency. The growing application of ultrasound equipment has been driving the demand for these devices in the past three decades. In some cases, it is used to find the source of a disease. For instance, the treatment of coronary heart disease (CHD) includes diagnosis by ultrasound.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is growing number of substitutes. Though the 3D/4D ultrasound equipment market is growing at a steady pace globally, the availability of alternative imaging modalities will hinder the growth prospects in the coming years. The presence of alternatives like 2D ultrasound, emergence of 5D ultrasound, and other advanced imaging modalities such as CT and MRI pose a threat to the global 3D/4D ultrasound equipment market. The 2D ultrasound capture the axial images, whereas 5D brings a new level of workflow, which rely on automation. 2D ultrasound equipment is still being used in mid-sized hospitals as the equipment cost is lower than the 3D/4D ultrasound equipment.
