Portable ultrasound bladder scanners are medical devices used to visualize the urinary bladder noninvasively for various diagnostic and clinical applications. Ultrasound bladder scanners enable quick, easy, painless, and accurate assessment of bladder volume without the need for catheterization.
The global Portable Ultrasound Bladder Scanner Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 163.82 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.8% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
The rising geriatric population is expected to drive the growth of the portable ultrasound bladder scanner market over the forecast period. Geriatric population is more prone to suffer from urinary disorders due to weakening of pelvic floor muscles. Conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and overactive bladder are quite common among the aging population. Ultrasound bladder scanners are widely used in nursing homes and long-term care facilities to assess urine volume noninvasively and prevent urinary tract infections in elderly patients. Furthermore, the devices facilitate early diagnosis of urinary abnormalities in the geriatric population. These factors are expected to boost the adoption of portable ultrasound bladder scanners globally.
The portable ultrasound bladder scanner market is dominated by the hospitals segment. Portable ultrasound bladder scanners allow hospitals to perform urine flow studies and post-void residual urine measurements rapidly and conveniently at the bedside or in outpatient clinics. This has significantly improved workflow and patient care in hospitals.
