Performing and successfully completing an ultrasound examination requires multitude of skills that include the medical knowledge, the technical dexterity, and the know-how to navigate the various knobs of the ultrasound equipment. Today’s ultrasound machines are complex and quite advanced in electronics and in post-processing capabilities. Being able to optimize the ultrasound image is much dependent on the understanding of the basic functionality of the ultrasound equipment.
The aim of the report is to estimate the size of the market for ultrasound transducer and the future growth potential of the market for ultrasound transducer across various segments, such as product type, application and end user.
The market has been studied for historic years from 2018 to 2019, with the base year of estimation as 2020 and forecast from 2021 to 2028. Factors such as rising demand of minimally invasive therapies and increasing prevalence of cardiovascular, respiratory, and abdominal disorders are the key drivers of the global ultrasound transducer market.
Ultrasound transducers are made of a transducer head, a connecting wire or cable and a connector, or a device that connects the transducer to the ultrasound machine. The transducer head has a footprint region where the sound waves leave and return to the transducer. It is this footprint region of the transducer that needs to remain in contact with the body in order to transmit and receive ultrasound waves. A gel is applied to the skin/mucosa surface of the body to facilitate transmission of ultrasound waves given that sound waves do not transmit well in air. Each transducer also has a transducer (probe) marker located next to the head of the transducer in order to help identify its orientation. This probe marker can be a notch, a dot or a light on the probe’s head.
Transducers are produced in an array of shapes, sizes and frequencies and are adapted for specific clinical applications. In general, transducers for cardiac applications have small footprints. Vascular transducers have high frequencies and are linear in shape and obstetric and abdominal transducers are curvilinear in footprint shape in order to conform to the shape of the abdomen.
