Ultrasonic Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Ultrasonic devices utilize ultrasonic energy to cut and coagulate tissue. They can complement or replace vessel ligators, hemostatic clips and monopolar electrosurgical instruments. In contrast to devices such as lasers or electrocautery instruments that use heat from electrical energy to cauterize tissue, ultrasonic instruments convert electrical energy to mechanical energy in order to transect tissue. This conversion results in less charred tissue than in operations that utilize monopolar dissection. Less smoke from reduced tissue charring also benefits surgeons by providing them with a clearer view of the operative field. Depending on the indication, ultrasonic devices have quicker cutting times and better vessel sealing capabilities than their direct energy counterparts.

The ASP of the total ultrasonic device market in 2016 decreased over 2015. The ASP is expected to experience minor price depreciation during the forecast period. The number of units sold is the main driver of growth for the total ultrasonic instrument market. The number of ultrasonic devices sold is expected to grow over the forecast period.
Ultrasonic energy ensures that no electrical energy is being transmitted to the patient, which is associated with ulceration, incidental thermal damage to organs and other clinical problems. Therefore, ultrasonic energy provides a safer method for cutting and coagulating during laparoscopic surgeries. Large hospitals that frequently perform laparoscopic surgeries are more able to purchase ultrasonic instruments. With larger contracts signed for instruments, hospitals often negotiate and receive complimentary ultrasonic hardware from manufacturers.
