The overall cost of healthcare delivery has grown at a double-digit rate in the last few decades. Increasing health insurance premiums, the growing demand for quality healthcare services, the rising geriatric population, and the growing incidence of chronic disorders across the globe are the major factors responsible for the significant rise in healthcare costs. Other major factors contributing to this trend are the high dependency on traditional and technologically outdated clinical devices that increase patient readmission, medical errors, and administration costs.
Driver: Increasing number of ultrasound imaging procedures
Advancements in diagnostic ultrasound imaging procedures have helped improve diagnosis by providing immediate clinical information. The availability of instant diagnostic data has consequently helped reduce overall healthcare costs by replacing more expensive diagnostic exams. A wide range of ultrasound imaging procedures offers significant growth opportunities for the growth of the ultrasound probe disinfection market. Also, the rising geriatric population across the globe is another major factor resulting in the growing volume of ultrasound imaging procedures performed. Since the elderly (65 years and above) are more susceptible to hospital-acquired infections and chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and various cancers, the demand for disease diagnosis and therapies is expected to rise steadily.
Restraint: High cost of automated probe reprocessors
Endocavitary probes and TEE probes are used for transvaginal, transrectal, and transesophageal procedures. Owing to their high cost, most hospitals in developing countries cannot afford automated probe reprocessors for high-level disinfection. The average cost of automated reprocessors is around USD 10,000 to USD 15,000, while a UV-C disinfector costs around USD 15,000 to USD 35,000. In developing countries, the use of automated reprocessors and consumables such as wipes and liquids are not in use at a larger scale because of the high cost. Radiologists in developing countries are of the opinion that the use of these consumables adds to the costs of imaging centers, and hence they prefer using cheaper options like probe covers. Lack of strict regulations for the use of disinfectants before procedures and low awareness of infections caused by infected probes among radiologists and patients are also restraining the adoption of correct disinfection procedures in countries such as India, Brazil, Mexico, and China. The added cost of storage cabinets and maintenance is another major factor limiting the adoption of automated probe reprocessors among end users with limited budgets.
Opportunity: Increasing birth rates/ number of pregnancies
An obstetrical ultrasound is a routine procedure that is performed throughout pregnancy for evaluating the health and development of the fetus through ultrasound images. The rising number of childbirths and pregnancies across the globe is expected to increase the adoption of ultrasound technology for OB/GYN imaging and neonatal care.
India and China, in particular, are expected to witness a considerable increase in the number of childbirths in the coming years. These countries accounted for the highest number of preterm childbirths, with 20.0 million and 12.0 million births, respectively, in 2020 (Source: WHO, 2020). Preterm births have a significantly higher requirement for ultrasound procedures as compared to normal births due to the OB/GYN complications associated with these pregnancies. Also, the high number of births (pregnancies) and newer applications of ultrasound in obstetrics (such as detection of fetal cardiac pulsations and pulsations in various fetal blood vessels) are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for ultrasound probe disinfection product manufacturers across the globe.
Challenge: Lack of knowledge about probe reprocessing
Disinfection of ultrasound probes is a critical step in reprocessing, as the use of contaminated probes can lead to fatal patient infections or instrument malfunctions. According to the Joint Commission’s survey, hospital-acquired infections caused due to blood-borne pathogens or bacterial agents in patients are increasing due to a lack of knowledge among healthcare providers about probe reprocessing. Non-compliance with evidence-based guidelines and manufacturers’ instructions for use (IFU) have resulted in the increased risk of infections and outbreaks. Reprocessing of ultrasound probes is a complex job, and high-level disinfection after every use requires skilled personnel. Hence, several hospitals recruit certified sterile processing staff. Written and up-to-date policies and procedures must be available on site for training/monitoring the staff responsible for device reprocessing. Lack of knowledge in probe reprocessing and low awareness about the importance of thorough cleaning of all transducers affects market growth.
