Portable ultrasound scanner is a wireless medical device that uses high frequency sound waves to emit an image of internal body parts of the person. Ultrasound is used in the most of the abdominal, gynecologic, obstetric, vascular, soft tissue, and other procedural applications.
Rise in prevalence of targeted diseases, increase in trauma and accident cases, preference for minimally invasive surgeries, and the rise of a geriatric population that has high risk of surgical procedures drives the portable ultrasound scanners market. In addition, various benefits of scanner such as low cost compared to traditional scanners, wireless system, potable, automated, maintain privacy, high quality transducer, reduction of diagnosis time, and effective usage in point-of-care and remote diagnosis are anticipated to fuel the market growth. Moreover, increase in investments in healthcare infrastructure by the government & private sector are anticipated to fuel the market growth. However, significant levels of government rules & regulations, and lack of skilled personnel are the major barriers for the growth of the market. Emerging economies such as India, China, Mexico, and Brazil are anticipated to create new opportunities during the forecast period.
