The global ultrasound gels market size is projected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the rising procedural volume of ultrasound globally and growing adoption of ultrasound devices in point of care diagnostics.

Ultrasound Gels Market key takeaways

Ultrasound gel is a coupling material that aids in the formation of a tight bond between the skin and the probe. Ultrasound gels help in the direct transmission of ultrasound waves to tissues and other sections of the body where imaging is required. Furthermore, propylene glycol, water, or color are used to make these gels. It is a thick, transparent, and sticky substance that doesn't drop. The gel thickens the cream and allows it to spread across the skin. Moreover, silicone oil is used to alleviate the discomfort of urinary catheterization. This oil is a cutting-edge catheter lubricant. Ultrasound gels such as sterile Aquasonic 100, Aquasonic 100, SCAN ultrasound gel, and polysonic ultrasound lotion are commonly used. However, ultrasound gel has become a necessity for any form of ultrasound imaging procedure. The chilling effect of ultrasound gel is minimized by using an ultrasound gel warmer. This is how many doctors get the gel to body temperature and the patient to feel comfortable and relaxed.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the demand for medical supplies has been increased drastically to take care of targeted population. In primary clinical treatment, respiratory support equipment such as an atomizer, a monitor, an oxygen generator, and a life-support machine are most commonly used medical devices. Furthermore, growing incidence of COVID-19 cases all around the world resulted in high demand for medical supplies for both civil population and healthcare professionals to take precautionary measures. On the other hand, manufacturers of these items have an opportunity to profit from the increased demand for medical supplies by ensuring a steady supply of personal protective equipment on the market. Thus, the pandemic is predicted to have a substantial impact on the ultrasound gel market as a result of these considerations.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Growing awareness level related to screening for breast cancer and increasing demand for ultrasound gels from hospital, clinics and diagnostic centers are expected to upsurge the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Cost-effective ultrasound gels and less harmful imaging procedures are some of the key factors fueling the market growth.
  • Introduction of the colorless, odorless, glycerin free, and formaldehyde-free ultrasound gels are another driving factors propelling the market expansion.
  • Rise in concern to protect the ultrasound transducer from damages and the introducing trend to deliver utmost patient satisfaction during treatment are expected to propel the market growth.
  • Cooling effect of ultrasound gel, less comfort for patients, and limited resources available for healthcare facilities are some factors hindering the market expansion.
  • Increasing concern to protect the ultrasound transducer from damages and introducing trend to offer ultimate patient satisfaction throughout treatment procedure are estimated to offer immense opportunity for the market expansion in the coming years.

Market Segment Insights

Non-sterile segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace

Based on types, the global ultrasound gels market is bifurcated by non-sterile and sterile. The non-sterile segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. The recommendations for the cleaning and preparation of internal and external ultrasound probes, as well as the safe handling and use of coupling gel have been reapproved by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) in March 2021. Moreover, growing usage of external probe ultrasound procedures to examine the uterus, gall bladder, kidney, heart, reproductive organs, and liver is expected to boost the segment growth in the near future.

Hospital segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR

On the basis of end-users, the market is segmented into clinics, hospitals, ambulatory centers, and others. The hospital segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period owing to the growing cases of emergency patients’ visits in hospitals. Rising number of several health concerns such as vascular issues, chest pain, and acute abdominal pain are required to use ultrasound as the primary diagnostic tool. However, the clinics segment is estimated to expand at a faster rate in the coming years attributed to the growing awareness level among people and cost effective ultrasound machines installed in clinics.

Ultrasound Gels Market by end users

North America is anticipated to constitute a key market share

In terms of regions, the global ultrasound gels market is classified as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. North America is anticipated to constitute a key market share during the forecast period due to the strong presence of major market players and well-established healthcare infrastructure in the region. Moreover, favorable reimbursement policies and rising adoption of ultrasound at community level home healthcare centers and clinics in the region present another key aspect for the regional market growth.

However, the market of Europe is estimated to grow at a considerable rate in the coming years attributed to high medical consumables consumption, increasing healthcare expenditure, and growing demand for medical imaging procedures.
