A bladder scanner is a medical device that utilizes ultrasound to noninvasively measure the amount of urine in the bladder, or to determine how much urine remains in the bladder after urination as a way to measure the residual levels. The scanner provides quick and reliable information in the diagnosis and effective treatment of several urological conditions. It also decreases the occurrence of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and prevents unnecessary catheterization. The scanner is used to evaluate urinary retention, bladder volume and post-void residual volume in postoperative patients with decreased urine output and patients with urinary incontinence, urethral stricture, UTIs, enlarged prostate, neurogenic bladder, and other type of lower urinary tract dysfunctions.

Global Bladder Scanner Market - Drivers

Increasing prevalence of urological diseases are expected to drive growth of the global bladder scanner market. Urological diseases are more common in elderly population. Urinary incontinence is common condition among the urinary diseases. Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine. Therefore, growing prevalence of urological diseases is expected to increase the bladder scanner demand. According to National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, based upon the national public health survey published in 2018, it is estimated that 1 in 10 U.S. adults suffer from daily urinary incontinence; most of those affected are women.

Increasing number of surgical procedures such as urethral surgery is expected to drive the global bladder scanner market growth during the forecast period. Increasing number of minimally invasive procedures for urological conditions, which is expected to fuel growth of global bladder scanner market.

Furthermore, manufacturers and researchers are developing advanced systems for scanning the bladder and measuring its volume by nurses. For instance, in February 2019, EchoNous, an announced the release of EchoNous Bladder, a highly reliable, non-mechanical bladder scanning tool for nurses. This helps nurses to quickly determine the bladder volume of patients.

Moreover, in January 2015, dBMEDx received 510(k) clearance from the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its novel bladder scanner, the BBS Revolution. This device is easy to use; it has accuracy and speed for the non-invasive measurement of bladder volume.  

However, the development of other diagnostic technologies and procedures hamper growth of global bladder scanner market. Moreover the unfavorable reimbursement policies and negative perception about urodynamic studies is likely to hamper growth of global bladder scanner market.

Global Bladder Scanner Market - Regional Insights

North America holds dominant position in the global bladder scanner market, owing to the high adoption rate of ultrasound bladder scanner among urologists and urogynecologists and presence of large number of testing centers in the region. Moreover, increase in incidence of urological dysfunction and advancements in urodynamics capital equipment are other factors driving the bladder scanner market growth in the North America. According to the National Institute of diabetes and digestive and kidney Diseases (NIDDK), in 2010, as many 1 in 3 older men lose the urine by accident. Moreover, in November 2017, Verathon Inc. announced the launch of its new portable 3D ultrasound instrument known as BladderScan Prime Plus. BladderScan Prime Plus provides the accuracy with enhanced ‘point and click’ ease of use. 

Asia Pacific is the second largest market in the global bladder scanner market, owing to increase in incidence of urinary incontinence, stress incontinence and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in the region. Moreover the rise in disposable income of population fuels growth of the market in Asia Pacific.
