Global Portable Ultrasound Market 2015-2019

Global Portable Ultrasound Market 2015-2019

About portable ultrasound

Portable ultrasound devices are medical imaging devices that utilize echo-enhanced ultrasound waves for diagnostic purposes. Portable ultrasound devices can be used at POC and can be operated on battery power. They are lighter and smaller than conventional ultrasound machines.

Conventional ultrasound machines have certain limitations such as low diagnostic accuracy and difficulty in imaging patients who are overweight as sound waves in these machines did not pass deeper into the body. However, portable ultrasound devices are highly sensitive and can even detect pancreatic tumors. These devices are affordable and hence widely used by gynecologists and obstetricians. These devices are also useful for on-field scanning and used for vascular, pediatric, cardiac, endocrinology, and radiology applications.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global portable ultrasound market to grow at a CAGR of 8.74% during 2014-2019.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Accutome, Alpinion Medical Systems, BenQ Medical Technology, Bestman, BMV Technology, Boston Scientific, Cephasonics, Chison, Ecare, Esaote, GlobalMed, Guangzhou Yueshen Medical Equipment, Hitachi Aloka Medical America, Jiangsu TONGREN Medical Electronic Technology, MedGyn, Mindray Medical, MobiSante, Samsung Medison, Signostics, St. Jude Medical, Telemed, Toshiba Medical Systems, Trivitron Healthcare, Wuhan Tianyi Electronic,, Zhuhai Carelife Medical Technology and Zoncare

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Portable ultrasound devices incorporate wireless features such as Bluetooth and near-field communication to deliver sophisticated home-based healthcare for patients. Such wireless devices help increase mobility, connectivity, and portability. Technological advances also allow medical devices to be powered or recharged remotely using fabrics and plastics.”

According to the report, semiconductor manufacturers are making efforts to develop efficient, innovative designs that consume less power. Semiconductor technology in portable ultrasounds is convenient for data transfers. In addition, it reduces the overall system cost of mobile devices by lowering power consumption.

Further, the report states that, as with any online digital format, portable ultrasound devices come with security concerns. The increased connectivity via the Internet among medical devices and between hospitals increases the risk of confidential patient data being hacked and used for illegal purposes. Thus manufacturers must have safeguards in place to mitigate any failures arising from cyber threats.
