Research report explores the high intensity focused ultrasound market by company profile, deals type, key trends & opportunities to 2022

HIFU is one modality of therapeutic ultrasound, involving minimally invasive or non–invasive methods to direct acoustic energy into the body.

High–Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a highly precise medical procedure that applies high–intensity focused ultrasound energy to locally heat and destroy diseased or damaged tissue through ablation.

In HIFU therapy, ultrasound beams are focused on diseased tissue, and due to the significant energy deposition at the focus, temperature within the tissue can rise to levels from 65° to 85°C, destroying the diseased tissue by coagulation necrosis.

Recent advances in HIFU, which was developed in the 1940s as a viable thermal tissue ablation approach, have increased its popularity.

In clinics, HIFU has been applied to treat a variety of solid malignant tumors in a well–defined volume, including the pancreas, liver, prostate, breast, uterine fibroids, and soft–tissue sarcomas.

In comparison to conventional tumor/cancer treatment modalities, such as open surgery, radio– and chemo–therapy, HIFU has the advantages of non–invasion, non–ionization, and fewer complications after treatment. More than 115, 000 cases have been treated throughout the world with great success till 2015.

High prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and cancer cases, rapidly growing aging population, rising number of new product launches, growing number of clinical studies regarding the applications of HIFU, and increasing focus of key players on the development of technologically advanced systems are the key factors driving the market growth. Moreover, emerging applications such as gynecology & obstetrics, neurosurgery, urinary disorders imaging, and removal of excess subcutaneous fatty tissue using high–energy sound waves would further propel the growth of the high–intensity focused ultrasound market in the coming six years.

However, the stringent government regulations for the approval of HIFU system, rising price pressure faced by market players and unfavorable of reimbursement scenario are the key factors restraining the growth of this market.
