High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Market Information: By Modality (Therapeutic Ultrasound, Hemostasis), By Method (Non-Invasive and Minimal-Invasive Method), By Application (Prostate Cancer, Uterine Fibroids, and others), By End Users (Diagnostic Centers, Hospitals, Research Centers) - Global Forecast till 2023
High intensity focused ultrasound therapy is generally used to treat cancer cells with high-frequency sound waves. This treatment is used to treat only a single tumor or a part of a larger tumor and cannot be used to treat widespread tumors. Hence, the high intensity focused ultrasound therapy is not suitable for the treatment of malignant tumors. The global HIFU Therapy Market Size is expected to register a 7.8% CAGR through the forecast period.
Many attributable factors are fueling growth in the HIFU market. These factors include a rising prevalence of different types of cancer and increased development in medical technology. Further, widespread applications of high intensity focused ultrasound is promoting ascension of the market to a great extent. Such therapy is used for the treatment of neurological disorders, cosmetic medicine, as well as uterus fibroids. However, a high cost of treatment and various side-effects are estimated to refrain the market from growing during the assessment period.
