Latin America Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market Size
According to a latest market research report, the Latin America Ultrasound probe disinfection market estimated at around USD 21.8 million in 2018 and It is expected to reach USD 94.4 million by 2025, increasing at a compound annual growth rate of 23.71% over the forecast period 2018-2025.
The ultrasound probe disinfection is a device for obtaining images of internal organs using sound waves. These sound waves bounce off the internal organs in the form of echoes received by the probe and sent to the computer. The echoes received by computer are used to form images called sonograms. The probes are available in different shapes and sizes for use with all body organs.
Growth Drivers, Challenges and Opportunities:
Ultrasonic probes are prone to bacterial contamination because they are kept in an open environment without any protection. For decades, soaking the ultrasonic probe in solutions was a standard process to prevent infections. Ultrasonic images are at a minimum or very low risk and are not invasive, which offer advantages over other imaging procedures, such as X-ray images, MRI, etc., along with the preference for minimally invasive imaging procedures in patients.
As a result, an increase in ultrasound imaging examinations is observed and is expected to boost the market for ultrasonic probe disinfection. Other factors contributing to the growth of this regional market include the increase in nosocomial infections, the growing need for improved hygiene practices in developed countries under government guidelines, and the growing acceptance disinfection automation.
The increase in the number of ultrasound probe disinfection procedures and the number of diseases contracted due to the use of poorly disinfected ultrasound probes are the main drivers of the Latin American market. Increased adoption of high-level disinfection techniques and systems for probes and advances in ultrasonic probe technology are other factors driving market growth. Increased government support for new disinfection techniques and increased spending on health care around the region is also driving market growth.
However, the lack of knowledge about this disinfection in developing countries and the lack of adoption of improved and advanced disinfection techniques and systems in underdeveloped countries is expected to limit the market in the Latin American region. Ignorance of the procedures in developed countries is also expected to hamper the market growth. In addition, soaking the probe in solutions could be detrimental to the health of the patient because of the concentration of the solution and other problems that occur during soaking.
Increasing birth rate, due to the best health facilities, can be an opportunity for the ultrasonic probe disinfection market. High-Level Disinfection (HLD) is a new method used for the disinfection of ultrasonic probes. It offers affordable, easy and fast methods to disinfect a probe as well as the safety of staff and the patient.
