Optimizing large capital equipment purchases continues to be both a necessity and a challenge for hospitals, given the cost pressures of today’s healthcare environment. Ultrasound devices are a case in point.
According to a recent article by Zion Market Research, the ultrasound market will grow from $5.2 billion to $6.9 billion by 2021, driven by demand from the healthcare industry to use machines for disease diagnosis. While the cart/trolley based ultrasound device is expected to continue as the preferred machine of choice, Zion predicts 3D and 4D ultrasound technology will also see favorable future growth.
