High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Therapy Market Analysis

The high intensity focused ultrasound market is driven by increasing awareness of early disease diagnosis and favorable regulatory scenarios for high-intensity focused ultrasound devices. Additionally, an increase in the elderly population and increased demand for high intensity focused ultrasound therapy are driving market growth. The increasing development of medical technology and its diverse applications in treating uterine fibroids, neurological diseases, aesthetic applications, and others have fueled the market's growth. Additionally, new applications such as gynecology and obstetrics, neurosurgery, urinary tract disease imaging, and removal of excess subcutaneous fat using high-energy sound waves would further drive the growth of the high-intensity focused ultrasound market in the next five years. However, stringent regulatory guidelines for approving innovative high intensity focused ultrasound technologies, increasing pricing pressure, and unfavorable reimbursement scenarios are the significant challenges market participants face, restraining the growth of this market.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Therapy Market Overview

High intensity focused ultrasound is a rapidly spreading therapeutic approach using ultrasound waves. Waves propagate through tissue media as energy carriers. High intensity focused ultrasound offers high potential for tumor ablation, hemostasis, thrombolysis, and targeted drug delivery. Cancer treatment is a critical issue in both developed and developed countries. The high frequency ultrasound waves used in therapy are also used to treat prostate cancer. It is widely used in interventional oncology due to its non-invasiveness, narrow treatment limits, and low complication rates. High intensity focused ultrasound systems have several advantages over traditional ultrasound systems, including shorter operative times and less bleeding. The high occurrence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer cases, the rapidly growing aging population, the increasing product launches, a growing number of clinical trials on the applications of high-intensity focused ultrasound, and the growing emphasis of key players on the technologically advanced systems are the key factors driving market growth. Additionally, surgical procedures using these devices are often less expensive, less intrusive, and less uncomfortable. The lack of skilled professionals and limitations associated with high intensity focused ultrasound as a technology inhibit high-intensity focused ultrasound market growth.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Therapy Market Drivers and Opportunities

Rising Incidences of Kidney Stone and Prostate Diseases to Favor Market

Urolithiasis or kidney stones lead to severe urinary tract infections with the formation of calcifications in the bladder and uterus. Owing to the increasing amount of lifestyle diseases, kidney stones have become a common cause. Around one in 1,000 people worldwide are affected, with the risk ratio for men and women being 3:1. According to a report by the Lancet Commission, the number of new prostate cancer cases each year is expected to rise from 1.4 million to 2.9 million in 2020 and 2040 respectively. An 85% increase in prostate cancer deaths per year would increase the total from 375,000 in 2020 to nearly 700,000 in 2040. Rising temperatures because of climate change will lead to a rise in kidney stone cases over the next seven decades, even if measures are taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study by researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Therefore, rising cases of prostate cancer and kidney stones are expected to drive market growth.

Growing Hospital Industry In Developing Countries

The growth of the hospital industry in developing countries is generating better opportunities for the key market players for expanding their business, which is likely to be a key enabler of the market growth during the forecast period.
