Emphasis on Modality (Therapeutic Ultrasound, Hemostasis, Lithotripsy, Thrombolysis, Immunomodulation, Others); Methods (Non-invasive Methods, Minimal Invasive Methods); Application (Prostate Cancer, Uterine Fibroids, Neurological Disorders, Cosmetic Medicine, and Others); End-User (Diagnostic Centers, Hospitals, Research Centers, Others); Region/Country
Global High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Market was valued at ~US$ 100 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CGAR of ~18% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Focused ultrasound is an initial phase, noninvasive therapeutic technology which improves the lives of millions of patients suffering from serious medical conditions. It provides a disruptive, life-changing complement to surgery, drug delivery, radiation therapy, and cancer immunotherapy. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) increases the quality and longevity of life and decreases the treatment cost. Nowadays, it is used in the treatment of a wide range of indications, including:
- Benign and malignant tumors of the brain, breast, prostate, liver, and pancreas
- Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases and epilepsy
- Depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Arthritis and hypertension
- Uterine fibroids
In High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) highly focused ultrasonic waves are applied to the local diseased tissue through ablation. This leads to the rise in temperature with the rising intensity of tissue vibrations. Once the temperature rises beyond 60 degrees Celsius, coagulative necrosis and protein denaturation happen which in turn leads to irreversible cell death. The advantages of using HIFU products in traditional ultrasound systems include less bleeding and low procedural time. Moreover, surgical procedures using these devices are minimally invasive, cost-effective, as well as less painful. There are currently more than 125 clinical indications in which HIFU is employed which are in various stages of development, and the number is growing rapidly. Globally, 31 indications have regulatory approval; in the US, while six have been approved by the FDA. The demand for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) market is increasing on account of the high prevalence of cancer as well as cardiovascular disease cases, promulgating aging population, increasing number of new product launches, mounting number of clinical trials, and high focus of market key players on the development of technologically advanced systems. Moreover, the high recommendations by healthcare organizations (European Association of Urology, and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) on Focal therapy using the HIFU system for localized prostate cancer are encouraging market growth.
Insights Presented in the Report
“Amongst Modality, Therapeutic Ultrasound segment holds the major share.”
Based on Modality, the market is fragmented into Therapeutic Ultrasound, Hemostasis, Lithotripsy, Thrombolysis, Immunomodulation, and Others. The therapeutic ultrasound segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to grow at lucrative during the forecasted period. Therapeutic ultrasound is a kind of treatment modality that is mainly exploited during physical therapy to joints, tissue, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It mainly provides deep heating to heel the soft tissues of the body. Therapeutic ultrasounds are used as two different effects such as deep heating effects and non-thermal effects. The deep heating process assists in providing heat energy to the soft tissues in the body and Non-thermal effects assist in the contraction and expansion of tissues known as cavitation. The therapeutic segment is primarily propelled by a rise in the number of ultrasound procedures, a high prevalence of chronic conditions, and technological advancements. Moreover, an increase in the incidence of various disorders such as respiratory disorders, cardiovascular diseases, and abdominal disorders drives the demand for therapeutic ultrasound devices
“Amongst Methods, Non-invasive Methods segment holds the major share.”
Based on Methods, the market is bifurcated into Non-invasive Methods and Minimal Invasive Methods. The non-invasive segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to grow at lucrative during the forecasted period. Non-Invasive ultrasound stimulation is a developing technology that can noninvasively inhibit neural activity in the targeted brain by delivering pulsed ultrasonic waves. The increasing occurrence of the neurological, orthopedic, tooth, and gastrointestinal health problems among various chronic disorders is anticipated to create an upsurge in demand for non-invasive methods.
