Portable Ultrasound Market to be Worth $3.8 Billion by 2031

Portable Ultrasound Market by Product (POCUS, Handheld Ultrasound, Transducer, Gels), Technology (2D, 3D, 4D, Doppler), Display, Application (Breast Cancer, MSK, OB/GYN, CVD, Urology), End User (Hospitals, ACC, Imaging Center) – Global Forecast to 2031

Meticulous Research®—a leading global market research company, published a research report titled, ‘Portable Ultrasound Market By Product (POCUS, Handheld Ultrasound, Transducer, Gels), Technology (2D, 3D, 4D, Doppler), Display, Application (Breast Cancer, MSK, OB/GYN, CVD, Urology), End User (Hospitals, ACC, Imaging Center) – Global Forecast to 2031.

According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the global Portable Ultrasound Market is projected to reach $3.8 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period 2024–2031. The growth of the portable ultrasound market is driven by factors such as the growing adoption of portable medical devices in emergency care settings, the proliferation of hospitals, and the increasing demand for handheld ultrasound devices in ambulatory care centers and dialysis centers.

The growing preference for portable ultrasound devices over standard ultrasound machines among healthcare professionals and the rising demand from emerging economies are expected to create growth opportunities for players operating in this market. However, factors such as the shortage of skilled professionals, inadequate training programs for healthcare professionals on the use of portable ultrasound devices, reimbursement irregularities, poor image quality, and integration issues of portable ultrasound devices with existing digital health infrastructure pose challenges to the market's growth.

Portable Ultrasound Market: Future Outlook

The global Portable Ultrasound Market is segmented by product (Devices [by Portability {Point-of-care (PoC) Ultrasound (Machines and Transducers), Handheld Ultrasound}, by Technology {2D, 3D & 4D, Doppler}, by Display {Black & White (B/W), Colored}], Gels, Accessories), Application ( OB/GYN, Cardiovascular, Urology, Musculoskeletal, Breast Cancer, Other Applications), End User (Hospitals & Clinics, Diagnostic Imaging Centers, Ambulatory Care Centers, Other End Users) and Geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at regional and country levels.

Based on product, the global portable ultrasound market is segmented into devices, gels, and accessories. In 2024, the devices segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the growing demand for POCUS in emergency departments, increasing preference for ultrasound imaging near patients, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, and technological advancements in portable ultrasound devices.

Based on portability, the devices segment is further sub-segmented into point-of-care (PoC) ultrasound and handheld ultrasound. The handheld ultrasound segment is expected to register a higher CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the development and introduction of new handheld ultrasound devices tailored for specific applications, integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, and other technological advancements.

Based on application, the global portable ultrasound market is segmented into OB/GYN, cardiovascular, urology, musculoskeletal, breast cancer, and other applications. In 2024, the OB/GYN segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global portable ultrasound market. The large market share of this segment can be attributed to the growing prevalence of conditions related to women’s reproductive health, reduction in global infertility rates, and high incidence & rising awareness regarding early diagnosis and monitoring of PCOD & PCOS.

According to data published by the WHO in 2023, Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is characterized by an ovary with a follicle count ≥12 and a size of 2 or 3 mm3. This syndrome produces side effects related to women’s overall health, such as abnormal hair growth, weight gain, irregular menstrual cycle, infertility, and depression. Almost 70% of women with PCOS have infertility, and this condition is one of the common reasons for female infertility. PCOS occurs in women during their reproductive years, between 18 and 45 years old.

Based on end user, the global portable ultrasound market is segmented into hospitals & clinics, diagnostic imaging centers, ambulatory care centers, and other end users. In 2024, the hospitals & clinics segment is expected to account for the largest share of the portable ultrasound market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the increasing hospitalizations due to chronic diseases associated with an aging population, increasing healthcare expenditure, the adoption of advanced imaging modalities in hospitals, preference for low-cost products to control healthcare costs, rising focus on providing point-of-care/bedside service to patients, and the proliferation of healthcare facilities especially in emerging economies.

Portable ultrasound systems, including POCUS and handheld ultrasound, can be used near patient areas and do not require patients to visit special medical imaging centers for the diagnosis of various medical conditions. Moreover, getting a bedside medical imaging facility helps healthcare professionals in early diagnosis and treatment planning, driving the adoption of portable ultrasound in hospitals and clinics.
