Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

A probe cover is a physical barrier that is designed to prevent cross-contamination during medical examination such as transrectal and transvaginal ultrasound. Moreover, probe covers aids in reducing the risk of hospital-acquired infections by protecting patients and staff from cross-contamination. Probe covers are available in different shapes. Probe covers are made of latex, in order to provide safe diagnostic technique. The probe covers are rounded at the end, which help the probes to navigate the area of examination.

The demand for ultrasound has increased in the recent years due to increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, urinary tract infections, and cancer, globally, which is expected to drive growth of the latex probe cover market over the forecast period.

The global latex probe cover market is expected to be valued at US$ 552.7 million in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period (2020-2027).

Increasing incidence of hospital acquired infections is expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period

Increasing incidence of hospital acquired infection is expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, according to the data published in the American Journal of Infection Control in 2018, around 5% to 47% cases of high level disinfection or sterilization in invasive procedures was reported in the U.S., which may increase the risk of hospital acquired infections such as hepatitis B, human papilloma virus, and other bacterial infections. To overcome this situation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) have provided ultrasound specific guidelines, which state that probe covers should be used to reduce the risk of infection.

Increased prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period

Increasing demand of ultrasound procedures by hospitals and clinics due to high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is expected to drive the latex probe cover market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the statistics estimated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in December 2019, around 647,000 deaths occur every year due to heart disease in the U.S.

Latex Probe Cover Market Restraint

Many people suffer from latex allergy, which is expected to restrain latex probe cover market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in March 2016, the National Center for Biotechnology Information published an article, which states that around 5% healthcare workers suffered from latex allergy in the U.S.

Key Players

Major players operating in the global latex probe cover market include Cardinal Health, Inc., Parker Laboratories, Inc., Hartalega Holdings Berhad, Dynarex Corporation, Braun Melsungen AG, McKesson Medical-Surgical Inc., and CIVCO Medical Solutions

Probe covers are consistently used for diagnosis of various diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, urinary tract infection, and others. These probe covers fit tightly over the probe tip and are extended over the entire wand-like projection of the probe. Endocavitary probe should be used along with probe covers since these probes are used for oropharyngeal, vaginal, and rectal examinations. Pathogens such as human papillomavirus (HPV), herpes simplex virus, and other sexually transmitted infections are passed through contact with mucosal surfaces. Probe covers act as protective barrier and prevent the cross infection during ultrasound procedures, which is expected to propel the growth of latex probe cover market over the forecast period.    

Market Dynamics

Guidelines provided by regulatory authorities and other healthcare organizations recommend the use of probe covers for ultrasound procedures, which is expected to drive growth of latex probe cover market over the forecast period. For instance, the European Society of Radiology Ultrasound Working Group published an article on best practice recommendations for infection prevention and control in ultrasound, in November 2017, according to which probe covers should be used adequately, in order to reduce the risk of cross infection during ultrasound procedures.

Furthermore, increasing prevalence of chronic kidney disease is expected to propel growth of the latex probe cover market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, around 1.8 million people were hospitalized due to chronic kidney disease in Australia in 2016-17.
