and competition in Ultrasound medical devices global market.

Ultrasound is one of the renowned technologies in the medical field. This safe, non-invasive
and non-use of ionizing radiation procedure involves sound waves of higher frequencies
waves, (greater than 20,000 Hz) for producing various structural echo patterns of internal
body parts. An ultrasound machine during diagnosis, works by bouncing off sound waves
when in contact with solid parts of the body. In addition with the diagnosis, ultrasounds are
being used to treat medical conditions too and thereby ultrasounds have role to play in
therapeutic application. As estimated by IQ4I Research, Ultrasound medical devices global
market is expected to grow at a double digit CAGR to reach $10,106 million by 2023.
Rising population of chronic and lifestyle disorder, availability of public-private investments,
increasing demand for point of care testing and rising adoption of ultrasound technology in
the various fields especially in cardiology, oncology and emergency medicine are the factors

driving the market growth. However, some of the factors like lack of skilled professionals,
high cost ultrasound devices, stringent regulations and unfavorable reimbursement cuts may
hinder the growth of global ultrasound device market.

Advancements and newer technologies like contrast enhanced ultrasound and ultrasound
elastography are revolutionizing ultrasound market. Contrast enhanced ultrasound
technology which involves microbubble contrast agents and specialized techniques for
imaging the blood flow and perfusion within the human body are becoming most popular
medical imaging method. In September 7th, 2016 Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.
announced its launch of Aplio 500 Platinum contrast enhanced ultrasound system after the
recent approval from FDA for the use of microbubbles. Lumason and SonoVue from Bracco
Diagnostics, Inc. (U.S.), Optison from GE Healthcare (U.S) are few FDA approved contrast
enhanced ultrasound agents. Siemens Healthcare provides Cadence Contrast Pulse
Sequencing (CPS) Technology on its ACUSON Sequoia Ultrasound platform providing
detailed images of micro and macro vascularity enhancing lesion characterization. Philips
HD11 XE has the versatility to expand into a complete digital imaging technology
incorporating contrast imaging to enhance cardiovascular imaging capabilities. Similarly
Ultrasound elastography is one of the emerging technologies where stress is applied on the
organs to assess the mechanical properties (elasticity) and stiffness of fibrotic and
cancerous lesions. Hitachi Medical Corporation has developed Real-Time Tissue
Elastography (RTTE) application on its Hi Vision Avius ultrasound platform which
differentiates the healthy and malignant tissues of breast, thyroid, prostrate, liver and
pancreas. In addition the major players such as Toshiba Medical systems introduced
elastography technique in its Aplio MX platform, Philips Healthcare on its iU22 platform and
Siemens Healthcare in its ACUSON S2000 ultrasound platform.

The ultrasound medical devices global market is segmented based on their technology,
display, portability, application, end users and geography. The market by technology is
divided into diagnostic and therapeutic, based on display the market is segmented into black
& white and color and based on portability market is divided into trolley/cart based and
portable ultrasound medical devices. The ultrasound medical devices application is further
sub-segmented into radiology/general imaging, womens health, cardiology, point of care,
urology, orthopedic, cancer, neurology and others. The radiology/general imaging occupied
highest market in ultrasound medical devices application market.
