Global 3D and 4D Ultrasound Devices Markets to 2025 with Analogic., Canon Medical Systems, FujiFilm, Hitachi Medical, and Samsung Medison Dominating - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 29, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 29, 2020--

The “3D and 4D Ultrasound Devices: Global Markets” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report details market shares for 3D and 4D ultrasound devices based on type and geography. Based on type, the market is segmented into stationary 3D and 4D ultrasound devices and portable 3D and 4D ultrasound device segments.


This report offers a detailed picture of the market for 3D and 4D ultrasound devices. It highlights the current and future market potential for 3D and 4D ultrasound devices and provides a detailed analysis of the competitive environment, the regulatory scenario, drivers, restraints, opportunities and trends in the market. This report also covers market projections through 2025 and market shares for key market players.

Technological advancements improve the efficiency of ultrasound in terms of image quality and portability. The development of compact, hand-held devices has expanded the use of ultrasound devices into point-of-care settings. Increased healthcare expenditure from both government and private insurers for the expansion of medical imaging services are expected to account for stable 3D and 4D ultrasound device market growth during the forecast period.

An increase in the world’s elder population increased import volumes of medical equipment into emerging economies and increased spending on medical technology are expected to drive the 3D and 4D ultrasound device market during the forecast period. There are many notable innovations in 3D and 4D ultrasound devices. These devices are preferred by diagnostic centers, large hospitals, and private hospitals.

A powerful technological breakthrough, real-time 3D technology underwent several upgrades, replacing a good portion of the 2D ultrasound equipment, globally. Traditional 2D ultrasound has been used for diagnostic applications for several years. The 3D ultrasound market segment is gradually expanding its market share, mainly due to the increasing preference for real-time imaging. This is helpful in performing image-guided surgeries. In a 3D ultrasound device, sound waves used in the 2D system are transmitted to the target but are reflected by the software at different angles, creating a 3D image. Improved visualization and clarity with surface detail are available through 3D ultrasound.


In terms of application, 3D ultrasound made significant progress in the diagnostic evaluation, staging, and detection of prostate cancer. Investigators found that 3D ultrasound produces better images of prostate physiology, tumor extension, and evaluation of surrounding structures. 2D ultrasound usually requires manipulation of a probe to obtain an appropriate scanning angle, causing discomfort to the patient. 3D ultrasound provides superior information via needle biopsies for prostate cancer. In addition, 3D ultrasound is being used to guide surgery and at radiology centers to provide effective radiation therapy for cancer patients.

The effective use of 3D ultrasound robotic systems for breast and prostate needle biopsies is currently being investigated through several feasibility trials. In the U.S. alone, more than one million transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsies are performed, annually. TRUS is one of the most frequently performed procedures for prostate cancer diagnosis in the U.S. However, TRUS has several shortcomings; suboptimal sampling may require resampling. A robot-guided device provides image stability and accurate sampling for clinical evaluation.
