Enlarging Application Base to Help in Market Development
Ultrasound is the most commonly employed diagnosis procedure for curing a disease. It is a painless and safe method to examine the internal organs and avoids the use of harmful radiations. Generally, ultrasound scan is recommended for various uses. In urology, ultrasound is utilized for diagnosis of the prostatic and kidney diseases and to diagnose urinary bladder. There is a rise in demand for ultrasound machines designed for specialities such as cardiology and radiology and in the knowledge of the advantages offered by the portable colour ultrasound systems which ultimately increase the demand of ultrasound procedures and use of ultrasound gels.
Moreover, the increasing awareness towards screening for breast cancer and advanced technologies such as echocardiography has evolved into a non-invasive method for imaging has driven the number of ultrasound procedures and boosting the future growth. Other than this, the need for point of care ultrasound scanning in military medication, urgent treatment, and remote care are likely to bolster the demand for ultrasound procedures and also increase the demand for ultrasound gels across the globe.
Availability of Alternate Products an Ongoing Challenge in the Market
Medical ultrasound gels may be inaccessible or unaffordable in low-resource locations. Consumers and clinicians looking for a low-cost substitute for ultrasound gels. Such an alternative could be a boon in developing countries where radiology budgets are tight but might hinder the global ultrasound conductivity gels market. A gel made from water and corn-starch is low-cost gel can be an acceptable alternative to commercial medical gel in rural areas. The low cost and easy preparation of the corn-starch-based gel make it an attractive coupling medium for use in low-resource settings. The availability of these substitutes is likely to act as a major roadblock in the growth of the market which be overcome in the near future.
Will the availability of substitutes and dearth of skilled personnel pull down the market or will the credibility of the product keep the making growing at a steady pace?
