Ultrasonic Technologies Market size is set to exhibit a substantial CAGR between 2022 and 2028. This rise is mainly credited to the rising product adoption across a range of applications such as the processing of food. The technology is used for assessing the physicochemical properties of food by means of nondestructive quality evaluation. Prominent advantages of ultrasonic technology in food industry include low power consumption, low cost of food processing, suitability for the treatment of liquid and solid food processing, and simplicity in comparison to other technologies.
On the basis of type, the ultrasonic technologies market is expected to record considerable expansion from the ultrasonic proximity sensor segment through 2028. These sensors can be operated and installed in different ways and are commonly used in a range of automation and manufacturing applications. Furthermore, these products utilize sound frequencies in the range of 25 to 50 kHz and are also deployed in numerous packaging applications, contributing towards segmental growth over the forecast period.
Based on end-use, the healthcare segment is estimated to register lucrative expansion up to 2028 owing to surging usage of ultrasound for newer applications across the medical sector. Citing an instance, the process of shock wave lithotripsy makes use of targeted ultrasound waves for breaking up calcium-based growths and kidney stones in the body. Ultrasonic techniques are also in high demand in the process of dental descaling for periodontal therapy, which is set to boost segment expansion in the coming years.
Considering the regional perspective, the Asia Pacific ultrasonic technologies market share is estimated to depict appreciable growth between 2022 and 2028. This is on account of increasing deployment of these technologies by administrative bodies across various countries. For instance, in efforts to combat the COVID variant ‘Omicron’, the administrative authorities of the Indian city of Nagpur are considering the adoption of ultrasonic detector cameras in the O2 generation area. The move intends to solve the issue of detection of O2 leakage in hospitals for avoiding fire incidents.
Major companies in the ultrasound technologies industry include Advanced Sonic Processing Systems, Toshiba America Medical Systems (Canon Medical Systems Corp.), Branson Ultrasonic Corp. (Emerson Electric), GE Healthcare, Siemens, Tokyo Keiki Inc., Cameron Measurement Systems, and others. These players are focusing on the adoption of strategic initiatives such as mergers, acquisitions, product developments, partnerships, and collaborations for maintaining their position in the market.
A few instances of the same are as follows:
The COVID-19 pandemic has pioneered several studies that have opened avenues for innovations across the ultrasonic technologies market. For instance, according to a research conducted by the MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, coronaviruses could be vulnerable to ultrasound vibrations, within the frequencies deployed in medical diagnostic imaging.
The study found that vibrations between the frequencies of 25 and 100 megahertz triggered the shell of the coronaviruses, which began to rupture within a fraction of a millisecond. This effect was witnessed in simulations of the virus in water and in air.
