These devices have been developed to cater to various healthcare settings, including hospitals, clinics, emergency rooms, and even remote or field locations. One of their primary features is their compact and lightweight design, which makes them highly portable and allows healthcare professionals to carry and use them with ease. They often come with rechargeable batteries, ensuring their operability in areas without direct access to electrical outlets.

Portable Ultrasound Scanners Market

Historical overview

The portable ultrasound scanners market size was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2021-2031. The portable ultrasound scanners market grew at a CAGR of around 5.8% during 2021-2031. Most of the growth during this period was derived from the Asia-Pacific owing to strong presence of key market players and rise in the number of diagnostic clinics using portable ultrasound scanners to efficiently perform diagnosis of patients.

Market dynamics

The portable ultrasound scanners market share is expected to grow significantly, owing to surge in prevalence of chronic diseases, technological advancement in portable ultrasound scanner, and rise in adoption of intraoperative ultrasound by surgeons.

The rise in chronic diseases, particularly breast cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and inflammatory bowel disease, and the strong presence of portable ultrasound scanners industryhas become a major driver for the portable ultrasound scanners market. Medical professionals have recognized the importance of early detection and timely monitoring of chronic diseases. According to WHO, it was estimated that breast cancer caused 685,000 deaths globally in 2020. Imaging is the first step in the diagnostic pathway of breast cancer detection. Mammography, which has long been considered the gold standard for screening and early detection of breast cancer, is not always feasible, especially in limited-resource settings. Breast ultrasound, which is used in high-resource settings to supplement mammography in certain clinical scenarios, offers a potentially viable alternative for early breast cancer detection in some resource-limited areas because it is portable, lower cost than mammography, and versatile across a wider range of clinical applications. According to the 2023 report by the National Library of Medicine, ultrasound techniques are typically helpful for distinguishing between a cystic and a solid mass during breast cancer diagnosis.

In addition, the rise in the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases has resulted in the increased demand for portable ultrasound for diagnosis of abnormalities in heart functioning. Portable ultrasound machines have become common in cardiology centers because they bring significant value to the practice. Cardiologists diagnose and understand conditions such as heart defects, valve issues, and damage from heart attacks, among many others using portable ultrasound. Mobile devices are enabled to be easily moved between exam rooms, helping doctors be more flexible with their treatment plans of the patient.

In addition, the rise in adoption of portable ultrasound scanners for intraoperative ultrasound by surgeons. Intraoperative ultrasound is commonly used for localization of known lesions and assessment of planned surgical margin, and detection and characterization of small lesions, particularly in the liver, kidney, and pancreas. According to 2021 report by National Library of Medicines, it was reported that the intraoperative ultrasound is commonly used in the liver for hepatic metastatic disease and hepatocellular carcinoma, in the pancreas for neuroendocrine tumors, and in the kidney for renal cell carcinoma.

Intestinal ultrasound (IUS) is a noninvasive and highly reliable point-of-care tool to evaluate inflammation of the bowel. According to the National Library of Medicine, a study was performed on 117 Crohn’s disease patients. The objective of the study was to investigate the diagnostic yield of intestinal ultrasound (IUS) examination, which was performed by a gastroenterologist with a portable system as an adjunct imaging modality in the routine care of Crohn’s disease patients. The study concluded that intestinal ultrasound examination with the use of a portable ultrasonography system significantly improves clinical-management decisions. Thus, portable ultrasound scanners have emerged as invaluable tools in the fight against these diseases by enabling early diagnosis.

Moreover, technological advancement in portable ultrasound scanners is expected to drive the portable ultrasound scanners market growth. Traditional bulky probes have been replaced by innovative, miniaturized versions without compromising image quality. These advancements have not only reduced the overall size and weight of the devices but have also improved their portability and maneuverability, making them ideal for point-of-care applications.

Technological advancements have emerged as a major driving force behind the rapid growth of the portable ultrasound scanners market. In recent years, significant progress has been made in ultrasound imaging technology, resulting in smaller, more powerful, and highly efficient devices. These advancements have led to the development of compact and lightweight ultrasound scanners that are expected to be easily carried and operated by healthcare professionals in various settings.

Moreover, the integration of advanced signal processing algorithms machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities has transformed portable ultrasound scanners into highly intelligent and user-friendly tools. AI-driven image enhancement techniques enable real-time image optimization, enhancing the clarity and accuracy of diagnostic information. For instance, iSono Health, a medical equipment manufacturer provides ATUSA, the first automated and portable 3D breast ultrasound scanner in the world. The ATUSA system is designed to seamlessly integrate with machine learning models that is expected to give physicians a comprehensive set of tools for decision making and patient management.

Thus, remarkable technological advancements such as development of compact ultrasound machines and integration of machine learning are anticipated to drive the growth of the market.

However, lack of skilled professionals and limited battery life of portable ultrasound scanners are expected to act as a significant restraint for the portable ultrasound scanner market. Moreover, opportunities in emerging markets are anticipated to present significant growth.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the portable ultrasound scanners market, reshaping its dynamics and driving notable changes in demand and usage. Healthcare systems faced unprecedented challenges, and the need for efficient and accessible diagnostic tools became paramount as the virus spread globally. Portable ultrasound scanners emerged as crucial tools in the fight against the pandemic due to their portability, ease of use, and ability to provide rapid imaging results without the need for patients to visit dedicated imaging centers. However, despite the surge in demand, the portable ultrasound scanners market also faced challenges during the pandemic. Supply chain disruptions and shortages of raw materials impacted production and distribution, leading to occasional delays in fulfilling orders. In the post pandemic phase demand for portable ultrasound scanners remained robust. Medical professionals recognized their value in non-Covid settings, such as emergency care, remote and rural healthcare delivery, and point-of-care diagnostics. The pandemic acted as a catalyst for the broader acceptance and integration of portable ultrasound scanners into routine medical practices, driving sustained growth in the market beyond the immediate crisis.
