Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market Overview:
The Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market is projected to reach USD 809 million by 2026 from USD 443 million in 2021, at a CAGR of 12.8% during the forecast period. Market growth is largely driven by the increasing number of ultrasound imaging procedures, the rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections due to improper reprocessing of ultrasound probes, the increasing adoption of high-level disinfection systems for critical and semi-critical ultrasound probes, government regulations and guidelines in developed markets, and technological advancements in ultrasound probes. However, the high cost of automated probe reprocessors and reluctance to shift from manual disinfection methods to automated probe reprocessors are restraining the growth of this market. Increasing birth rates/ number of pregnancies and high growth opportunities in emerging countries are opportunities. Some of the challenges faced by the market are lack of knowledge about reprocessing and inadequate cleaning and disinfection of probes.
Nanosonics Ltd. dominated the global ultrasound probe disinfection market in 2020. Its product portfolio includes decontamination products and accessories for the prevention of HAIs. The company’s trophon EPR is a complete ultrasound transducer high-level disinfection system that is fast, easy to use, and environmentally friendly. It uses a unique platform technology to effectively disinfect the transducer, including the shaft and handle, in just seven minutes between patients. The company majorly focuses on organic growth strategies such as product launches in the market for sustaining the competition in the market. For instance, in August 2018, Nanosonics launched trophon 2 and trophon companion wipes. The company estimated the customer base for trophon in North America to be 40,000.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost all countries across the globe and has brought some medical facilities to the brink of collapse. Because of high viral transmissibility, there is a considerably higher risk to frontline healthcare workers to develop severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Imaging equipment, particularly ultrasound, is at high risk for surface transmission as a result of frequent direct contact with large numbers of patients. During the peak of COVID-19, the number of ultrasound imaging procedures performed drastically reduced. The ultrasound probe disinfection instruments market has been negatively impacted during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, and this trend continued till December 2020. The consumables market is seen to be affected the due decrease in the number of ultrasound imaging procedures. But consumables market does not seem to have a negative impact due to the repeat purchase due to increase in the disinfection cycles. The number of ultrasound procedures slowly increased after the launch of vaccines. To address various challenges in the current scenario and ensure the safety of patients, various societies and national authorities, such as the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, have developed international guidelines. Owing to the aforementioned factors, caregivers and hospitals are expected to witness delays in elective surgeries and ultrasound procedures. However, it is expected that the market will begin to rise, as expected, from the late second half of 2021 gradually.
In the end user segment, hospitals & diagnostic imaging centers is expected to grow at the highest share in the ultrasound probe disinfection market
By end user, the ultrasound probe disinfection market is segmented into hospitals & diagnostic imaging centers, maternity centers, ambulatory care centers, research & academic institutes, and other end users. The hospitals & diagnostic imaging centers segment accounted for the highest rate of the ultrasound probe disinfection market in 2020. The large share of this segment can primarily be attributed to the increasing number of ultrasound imaging procedures performed and the growing demand for the high-level disinfection of critical and semi-critical ultrasound probes used in ambulatory care centers.
APAC is expected to account for the highest rate for players operating in the ultrasound probe disinfection market
Asia Pacific accounted for the highest growth rate of the ultrasound probe disinfection market in 2020. The increasing number of hospitals and diagnostic imaging centers and the growing focus of global companies on expanding their distribution networks in the Asia Pacific are also propelling the market growth. However, the high preference for traditional manual soaking methods over automated disinfection technologies, the high cost of automated disinfection devices, lack of awareness on the high-level disinfection of semi-critical probes, stringent government regulations related to the OB/GYN applications of ultrasound in the Indian market (due to the presence of stringent laws to curb the practice of sex detection before birth), and limited availability of medical reimbursements for ultrasound are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.
