The U.S. ultrasound equipment market size was worth USD 2.42 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period. 

The growing prevalence of chronic diseases nationwide and the rising demand for diagnostic imaging across healthcare systems fuel the U.S. ultrasound equipment market growth. Moreover, the rising introduction of technologically advanced equipment, such as compact and handheld ultrasound equipment, by leading players is expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.

  • According to an article published by the American Heart Association in 2021, an estimated 40,000 infants are expected to be affected yearly by congenital heart defects in the U.S.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had an overall negative effect on the market in 2020 owing to supply chain disruptions of medical devices from distributors in the country. Also, the decline in patient visits across healthcare systems further limited the need for diagnostic ultrasound imaging during the pandemic.


Rising Introduction of Ultrasound Equipment for Point-of-Care Applications

 The major players emphasize developing advanced ultrasound equipment for point-of-care applications such as musculoskeletal and emergency medicine. Also, high awareness among healthcare professionals and the rising presence of POCUS systems across health systems in the country aid market growth.

  • In July 2023, Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc. announced the introduction of PocketPro H2, a wireless handheld ultrasound device for general imaging in point-of-care applications.


Increasing Demand for Compact Devices to Boost Market Growth

The demand for compact ultrasound systems is increasing across health settings due to high potential benefits over traditional systems, such as portability, cost-effectiveness, non-invasiveness, and enhanced imaging results. Moreover, rising product launches of compact systems by key players over extensive clinical applications across the country will further propel the U.S. market growth.

  • In September 2022, Koninklijke Philips N.V. received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its 5000 series compact ultrasound system across clinical specialties, including point of care, cardiology, general imaging, and obstetrics & gynecology.


Increase in Product Recalls to Hamper Demand for Ultrasound Equipment

The rise in recall of these systems by regulatory authorities owing to operational and manufacturing malfunctions is hampering their demand and adoption in the market. Moreover, lack of trained personnel for operating advanced ultrasound equipment will further limit the U.S. ultrasound equipment market growth.

  • As per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration data published in July 2023, GE HealthCare recalled the Vivid S70 ultrasound device as certain systems could not boot up in a timely fashion and could delay the availability of the device in time-critical emergency conditions.

The hospitals segment held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to grow considerably at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The higher share was due to the increasing number of patient admissions in hospitals suffering from chronic disorders.

  • According to data published by the American Hospital Association (AHA) in 2022, the U.S. hospitals reported around 33.3 million patient admissions in 2022.


Presence of Strong Device Portfolio among Key Players to Boost Market Growth

The U.S. market was dominated by prominent players such as GE Healthcare, Koninklijke Philips N.V., and Canon Inc. in 2022. The dominance of the players is due to the presence of a robust product portfolio and rising initiatives for introducing technologically advanced devices across varied applications, which provide a competitive advantage to the company.

  • For instance, in June 2023, Koninklijke Philips N.V. showcased its new 5500CV portable ultrasound system at the upcoming meeting of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) in 2023. The system is designed to fit the needs of specialties, including general imaging, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, and point of care.
