Global Therapeutic Ultrasound Devices Market: Overview
Therapeutic ultrasound is a type of treatment modality that is used during physical therapy to tissue, muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. It is mainly used to provide deep heating to heel the soft tissues of the body. Therapeutic ultrasound are used as two different effects such as non-thermal effects and deep heating effects. Non-thermal effects help in the expansion and contraction of tissues called as cavitation whereas deep heating process helps in proving heat to the soft tissues in the body.
Global Therapeutic Ultrasound Devices Market: Key Trends
The global therapeutic ultrasound devices market is primarily driven by increase in the number of ultrasound procedures, rise in prevalence of chronic conditions, and technological advancements. Additionally, increase in incidence of various disorders such as cardiovascular diseases and respiratory and abdominal disorders propels demand for therapeutic ultrasound devices. According to World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) account for 9.4 million deaths globally each year. The number is likely to increase to 23.3 million by 2030. Hence, demand for ultrasound devices for diagnosing various CVDs is increasing due to improving image production quality. Aging has been associated with a large number of diseases and disorders. These often become worse as elderly individuals take more time to recover. A majority of the geriatric population suffers from cardiovascular, neurological, and orthopedic disorders. According to the Administration for Community Living, the geriatric population (65 years or older) in the U.S. stood at 46.2 million in 2014. Therefore, increase in the geriatric population is likely to drive the therapeutic ultrasound devices market.
Furthermore, existing market players are deploying advanced techniques and strategies to develop novel processes for the manufacture of technologically enhanced therapeutic ultrasound devices that can make patient’s life easier and boost the market growth during the forecast period. However, lack of awareness about therapeutic ultrasound devices, high cost, and less availability are expected to restrain the global market in the next few years. Government funding in emerging markets are expected to provide new opportunities in the market during the analysis period.
