Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market

logoMarket Overview

Disinfection is the process of destroying pathogenic and other kinds of germs using heat or chemicals. Due to disinfection's ability to eradicate the majority of known dangerous microorganisms, the procedure is less lethal than sterilization. In order to use ultrasound in medicine safely and effectively, infection control is essential, according to the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). One of the most popular diagnostic techniques utilized nowadays is ultrasound. This also prompts questions about how thoroughly the ultrasound probe should be cleaned. The repeated use of the ultrasound probe and its potential to act as a vehicle for the spread of viruses raise concerns even though ultrasonography is a crucial tool in the detection of disease. After undergoing an ultrasound-guided surgery and drainage using tainted gel in Australia in 2017, 10 patients were discovered to be infected with Burkholderia cenocepacia, according to the Therapeutic Drug Administration. There are now several different ultrasound probe disinfection tools on the market. Ultrasound probe disinfectors with cutting-edge technology have been introduced to the market in response to growing concerns about reducing hospital-acquired infections. For instance, Nanosonics debuted Tropton 2 in October 2018; it can retain up to 100,000 records of disinfection and is simple to incorporate into medical information systems.

However, it is anticipated that the market will begin to consistently grow as intended beginning in the latter part of 2021.

Ultrasound Probe Disinfection Market

logo Growth Drivers

  • Increasing number of ultrasound imaging procedures

By offering quick access to clinical data, improvements in diagnostic ultrasound imaging procedures have improved diagnosis. By displacing more expensive diagnostic exams, the availability of rapid diagnostic data has consequently assisted in lowering total healthcare expenditures. The global ultrasound probe disinfection market has great growth potential due to the wide variety of ultrasound imaging treatments. Another significant reason driving the increase in the number of ultrasonic imaging treatments conducted is the growing geriatric population around the world. The demand for illness diagnostics and therapies is anticipated to increase gradually since the elderly (those 65 years of age and over) are more vulnerable to hospital-acquired infections and chronic diseases like cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and other malignancies.

logo Restraints

  • High cost of automated probe reprocessors

Transvaginal, transrectal, and transesophageal procedures use endocavitary and TEE probes. Most hospitals in developing nations cannot afford automated probe reprocessors for high-level disinfection due to their high cost. Automated reprocessors often cost between USD 10,000 and USD 15,000, whereas UV-C disinfectors typically cost between USD 15,000 and USD 35,000. Because they are so expensive, automated reprocessors and consumables like wipes and liquids are not used more frequently in developing nations. Radiologists in developing nations prefer to employ less expensive solutions like probe covers because they believe that using these consumables raises the price of imaging facilities. The 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.

logo Opportunity

  • Increasing birth rates/ number of pregnancies

An obstetrical ultrasound is a common technique carried out throughout pregnancy to assess the fetus's growth and health using ultrasound images. The usage of ultrasound technology for OB/GYN imaging and newborn care is anticipated to rise as the number of births and pregnancies around the world rises. In particular, it is anticipated that India and China would have a significant increase in the number of pregnancies in the upcoming years. With 20.0 million and 12.0 million newborns, respectively, these nations had the most preterm deliveries in 2020. (Source: WHO, 2020). Due to the OB/GYN problems connected to these pregnancies, preterm newborns require much more ultrasound procedures than typical deliveries do. Additionally, the high rate of births (pregnancies) and more recent ultrasound obstetrical applications (like the detection of fetal cardiac pulsations and pulsations in various fetal blood vessels) are anticipated to present significant growth opportunities for ultrasound probe disinfection product manufacturers worldwide.

logo Challenges

  • Lack of knowledge about probe reprocessing

The use of contaminated ultrasound probes can result in catastrophic patient infections or instrument failures, thus disinfecting them is a crucial step in reprocessing. According to a poll by the Joint Commission, a lack of awareness regarding probe reprocessing among healthcare professionals is contributing to an increase in hospital-acquired infections in patients brought on by blood-borne pathogens or bacterial agents. The danger of infections and outbreaks has increased as a result of non-compliance with the manufacturer's instructions for use (IFU) and evidence-based recommendations. Ultrasound probe reprocessing is a challenging task that calls for qualified professionals to provide high-level disinfection after each use. As a result, many hospitals hire trained personnel for sterile processing. For the purpose of training/monitoring the staff members in charge of device reprocessing, written policies and procedures that are current must be accessible on-site. The expansion of the global ultrasound probe disinfection market is impacted by a lack of expertise in probe reprocessing and limited awareness of the value of thoroughly cleaning all transducers.
