Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market Overview

The global market for ultrasound probe disinfection was valued at USD 314.1 million in 2018 and is predicted to grow to USD 923.1 Million by 2030, with a robust CAGR of 9.20 percent. Ultrasound probe disinfection refers to the use of high-level disinfectants for sterilizing or cleaning medical equipment and devices in hospitals. The disinfectants are used to keep the ultrasound probes clean and free of microorganisms. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, 22.6 percent of probes were contaminated by bacteria in November 2014, and 28.6 percent of probes showed bacterial growth. As a result, rising bacterial contamination may support the ultrasound probe disinfection market. The rising number of ultrasound imaging operations; increased awareness about keeping a sterile and disinfected environment in hospitals, and an increase in technical improvements in ultrasound probes are the important drivers impacting this market.

Global Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market Share (%), by Region, 2017 Sources: National Cancer Institute, Cancer Research UK, the American Cancer Society, Inc, US Department of Health and Human Services National Institutes of Health

It is estimated that North America dominated the global ultrasound probe disinfection market owing to the increase in the prevalence of bacterial infection caused due to using infected or contaminated devices, high government regulation to maintain cleanliness and sanitation for the patients, and increasing availability of advanced disinfection probes. According to Premier Inc., December 2014 report on Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) it was estimated that around 50,000 patients died in hospitals due to a decrease in hospital-acquired conditions. This influences the market growth in this region.

Europe stood second largest in the ultrasound probe disinfection market owing to the increasing number of patients for sonography or ultrasound imaging. According to England NHS UK 2018, diagnostic-imaging statistics 9,250,895 number of patients undergone an ultrasound in the UK between 2016 to 2017. Such high prevalence ultrasound in this region facilitates market growth. 

Asia-Pacific was projected to be the rapidly growing region for the global ultrasound probe disinfection market in 2017. The market is expected to witness growth owing to the rising technological progress in ultrasound probes, rising adoption of disinfection systems for semi-critical and critical ultrasound probes. These factors are responsible for the growth of the ultrasound probe disinfection market in this region. 

The Middle East and Africa holds the least share in the global ultrasound probe disinfection market due to, following the ancient sanitation methods, low awareness about the disinfectant probes, and low economic countries. However, the market is expected to witness growth due to increasing government regulation related to hospital sanitation and patient care in the Middle East.
