Key Market Insights


Nearly 100 handheld ultrasound imaging devices are presently available / under development

Close to 85% of the aforementioned scanners use linear and curved / convex transducer arrays. Further, to offer variations in image visualization, about 46% of these devices support more than two modes of imaging, including brightness mode (B-mode), color doppler, motion mode (M-mode), pulsed wave, power doppler and tissue harmonic mode.


70% of scanners are based on smartphone applications

Handheld devices using abovementioned type of software are primarily being used for gynecology / obstetrics (32%), urological (21%) and abdomen (12%) scanning.  It is worth mentioning that customized software-based scanners are preferred in emergency medicines and hospital operating rooms, owing to their ease of handling .


Partnership activity has grown at an annualized rate of nearly 43%, between 2016 and 2019

Majority of the collaborations signed in this domain were reported to be distribution and supply agreements (over 30%). In addition, key value drivers in majority of the agreements were expansion of market reach and incorporation of advanced features in devices.


Demand for handheld ultrasound scanners is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 12.1%, between 2020 and 2030

Presently, over 80,000 units of handheld ultrasound scanners are estimated to be used for diagnostic imaging purpose by physicians. In fact, scanners offered by Butterfly Network, Clarius Mobile Health, Fujifilm, GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthineers and Philips are estimated to cater to more than 80% of the current demand for such devices.


Handheld ultrasound scanners are estimated to enhance radiologists’ efficiency by ~10%

Owing to their light-weight, portability and advanced imaging features, these devices allow radiologists to perform more number of scans (as compared to conventional stationary devices) in a single day. In fact, by 2030, we anticipate net annual cost savings of over USD 30 billion to be brought about by the adoption of handheld ultrasound scanners.


By 2030, North America and Europe are anticipated to capture over 70% of the market opportunity

The market in European regions is anticipated to grow at a relatively faster rate (12.2%). In terms of end-users, by 2030, hospitals are likely to represent the largest share of the market, followed by ambulatory surgical centers (25%) and specialty clinics (16%).
