Ultrasound Systems - South America Analysis and Market Forecasts


Ultrasound systems are widely used to achieve early detection and clinical assessment, providing non- radioactive, cost-effective diagnostic ultrasound imaging in a variety of clinical settings. With the growth of the elderly population and rising prevalence of diseases worldwide, the need for ultrasound systems is growing consistently. Real-time 3D/4D ultrasound systems lead the ultrasound devices market with a steady growth, due to their effective functionalities and advanced features. Meanwhile, 3D ultrasound systems draw a respectable portion of revenue of the ultrasound business due to cost-effective offerings. The market for 2D ultrasound systems is mainly driven by rural and remote areas with low economic resources. Additionally, today’s handheld ultrasound systems with better image quality and more advanced modes have consistently gained acceptance. Due to their reduced size and ease of use, handheld systems play an important role in the point-of-care market and can be used by healthcare personnel other than radiologists. These systems are expected to drive the ultrasound devices market to new heights.

The generation of research report is concerned by most clients when purchasing it. Following general steps are taken for generating reports.
1. Choose a topic.
2. Make skeleton catalogue.
3. Fill content. As for report content, there are two main information source, Primary and Secondary data collection. Secondary data collectionrefers to information searched from the Internet or data bought from database. Primary data collection refers to information concluded from telephone interview, face-to-face interview, expert’s interview, meeting etc.
4. Audit the report
5. Publish the report.

With regard to information cost, information searching costs the least, database support the second least, and telephone interview the third least. Face-face interview cost higher, in-depth interview much higher and expert interview the highest. A research may adopt all of these approaches, or just some of them.
In general, a good-quality research report needs 1-3 months to be finished. Time and method varies according to different Publishers. Thus, it’s difficult to define an exact procedure or process of making research report. Both time and cost vary. However, specialization has become a basic industry standard. Professional and dedicated products will be more and more popular.
