Competitive environment shakeup - What's ahead for ultrasound companies in 2018?January 30, 2018IHS Markit discusses the biggest mergers, acquisitions, and initial public offerings of the year and analyzes the implications for the global ultrasound market.
Three global trends changing the landscape of the medical imaging equipment marketSeptember 20, 2017Growth for x-ray, ultrasound, MRI, and CT equipment will be driven by a variety of unique factors, but several trends will affect future revenues for the entire medical imaging equipment market. Three of these trends—the aging global population, the changing US healthcare culture, and the emergence of healthcare markets in developing nations—are highlighted below and followed by IHS Markit’s advice for capitalizing on these trends.
Interventional X-ray equipment – Dose aware or financial affair?September 18, 2017In the current global healthcare environment, providers are increasingly obliged to balance tight financial budgets whilst ensuring that patient care is not jeopardised. There are large regional and country-specific differences in what determines the decision-making process when purchasing interventional X-ray equipment. A combination of healthcare budget restrictions, political instability and economic crises has heightened consideration of the price of interventional X-ray systems. Regulatory pressures and guidelines on dose requirements fuel the demand for interventional X-ray equipment with higher image quality and lower dose features, in addition to dose monitoring features.
Interventional cardiology ultrasound at the forefront of medical imaging innovationAugust 30, 2017Global revenues for interventional cardiology ultrasound equipment were $131 million in 2016 and are forecast to reach $161 million in 2021. Global demographic changes, fears regarding radiation dose, and the increasing accessibility of ultrasound are driving growth for the interventional cardiology market, and interventional cardiology advancements are driving growth for minimally invasive procedures.
Interventional X-ray Equipment : Are advances in technology driving demand for interventional procedures or are interventional procedures driving demand for technology advances?August 14, 2017The relationship between interventional X-ray procedures and interventional X-ray equipment is interchangeable in terms of where the influences lie. Demand for interventional X-ray systems is largely influenced by procedural developments and the reimbursement available for them. However, some complex interventional procedures would not be able to be performed without advances being made in interventional X-ray technology.
Changes in ultrasound customer base are increasing demand for direct manufacturer interactionJuly 24, 2017With many trends influencing the growth of the ultrasound market, it is interesting to analyze the subsequent impact on the sales channels customers use to purchase equipment. As with most medical technology, the underlying factor of shrinking healthcare budgets is shaking up the ultrasound equipment product mix. The focus is on providing the best level of care and reducing high-cost procedures through prevention rather than cure; this is changing the way in which healthcare is provided. Not only are healthcare professionals seeking products that improve the return on investment, but also products that can be used in non-traditional applications; ultrasound equipment is now used by a greater variety of professionals than ever before. This is subsequently affecting the demand for user training and for receiving information directly from manufacturers.

Breaking down the winners and losers of the 2016 global ultrasound marketMay 24, 2017Global ultrasound revenues totaled $6.16 billion in 2016 and are forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2016 to 2021. The following table shows the total ultrasound revenues for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), the Americas, and Asia Pacific in 2015 and 2016:
A bumpy road ahead for the EMEA ultrasound market – Reflections from ECR 2017March 09, 2017The European Congress of Radiology (ECR) convened in Vienna on March 1–5 2017. ECR provided an opportunity for leaders in the ultrasound industry to meet and discuss the future of the region’s ultrasound market. The EMEA ultrasound market will face several barriers to growth in 2017. The upcoming presidential elections in Germany, France, and the Netherlands are already creating a lull in ultrasound system sales as these large governments prepare for transition. Shrinking budgets in both the public and private sectors are forcing healthcare providers to delay purchases of ultrasound systems, and increased competition from Asian-based manufacturers is causing additional disruption in the market.
ECR 2017: Radiology in bloomMarch 09, 2017The bejewelled skulls and vivid floral displays created a dramatic entrance to the 2017 European Congress of Radiology (ECR), located in the Austria Centre Vienna.

Outpatient growth drives ultrasound equipment volumesNovember 03, 2016The global ultrasound imaging equipment market is estimated to have been worth $6.16 billion in 2015; an increase of 1.2% from 2014. This rate of growth is lower than previously forecast, which is primarily due to the impact of a strong US dollar and other foreign exchange fluctuations, which affected the sales of foreign US subsidiaries. The market also experienced a period of highly competitive pricing which lowered average sales prices (ASP), particularly in Latin America and Europe. For some vendors, this ASP erosion was further exacerbated by the effects of shifting foreign exchange rates. Stronger growth is predicted for 2016 because of new product launches from Carestream, Fukuda Denshi, Hitachi-Aloka, and VisualSonics (Fujifilm SonoSite), and because of increased volumes in point of care and obstetrics applications. On a unit volume basis, shipments were up by 4% over 2014. The results for 2016 are expected to be closer to a 5% increase. Growth in the market through 2020 is being driven by uptake of mid-range and high-end cart-based systems in both emerging and developed markets for use in traditional applications. Uptake will also be bolstered by further development of the use of compact ultrasound systems in point-of-care (POC) applications.
Interventional X-ray: Minimal procedures, maximum impactNovember 01, 2016Interventional X-ray systems are used for a variety of different procedures, including interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, electrophysiology, and neurology.
