Middle East and Africa Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market Size
According to a latest market research report, Middle East and Africa Ultrasound probe disinfection market were estimated at the USD 10.5 million in 2018 and it is expected to reach 34.1 million USD by 2025, growing at a compound annual rate of 18.83% over the 2018-2025 forecast period.
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.
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 minimum or very low risk and are not invasive. They therefore offer advantages over other imaging procedures, such as X-ray images, MRI, etc., and there is increasing preference for minimally invasive imaging procedure in patients. As a result, an increase in ultrasound imaging examinations is observed and is expected to continue in the coming years. In turn, an increasing number of ultrasound imaging examinations are expected to boost the market for ultrasonic probe disinfection in the Middle East and Africa region.
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, the growing acceptance disinfection automated 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 market for disinfection of ultrasonic probes. 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 ultrasonic probe 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 for the disinfection of the ultrasound probe in the Middle East and Africa. Ignorance of ultrasonic sensor disinfection in developed countries is also expected to hamper 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.
Increase in the birth rate, due to the best health facilities, can be an opportunity for the ultrasonic probe disinfection market in this region. 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.
