    The decline in average selling prices of X-ray equipment is nothing new. As a technology matures, and products using it are manufactured in larger quantities, they cost less to produce. In addition, more suppliers entering the market push prices down; also, intense cost pressure from healthcare purchasers have contributed to lower average selling prices. However, this trend is continuing and intensifying with sustained limitations on healthcare budgets and restrictions on healthcare spending. Healthcare providers must balance meeting financial targets with providing high quality care to patients, whilst manufacturers must offer products at suitable prices, whilst remaining profitable; the market is reaching a breaking point.

    The way in which ultrasound systems are marketed and purchased across the world is changing. Increasingly, and especially in developed markets, ultrasound systems are being designed with a specific clinical application in mind. When ultrasound was first introduced as a medical imaging tool in the mid-20th century, healthcare providers used one system for all clinical applications. As the technology advanced, specific ultrasound systems were developed for cardiology and OB/GYN applications. During the 1980s and 1990s, 3D and 4D ultrasound technology emerged for use in advanced cardiology, OB/GYN, and radiology procedures. As systems became more sophisticated and image quality improved, ultrasound was used in non-traditional ways to perform biopsies, guide needles, and assist during minimally invasive surgery. At the same time, ultrasound systems were developed for less advanced imaging as point of care tools in intensive care units, emergency departments, and primary care offices.
