The trend towards point-of-care ultrasonography is expected to continue, driven by the need for quick and convenient diagnostic options. Portable and handheld ultrasound technologies are gaining popularity, allowing healthcare providers to do ultrasound imaging at the patient's bedside or in rural, underserved areas.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning applications are expected to become more common in ultrasound diagnosis. AI can help with picture interpretation, improve diagnostic accuracy, and automate mundane operations, hence increasing healthcare practitioners' productivity and making ultrasound technology more accessible.

The rising use of ultrasound in point-of-care settings and expansion into new regions also contribute to the market's expansion. Modern ultrasound machines are portable and versatile, making them suitable for use in various healthcare settings, from traditional hospitals to distant and underserved places. The availability of ultrasound technology in point-of-care settings enables faster and more efficient diagnoses, which is especially important in emergencies.
