Description

Silicone Oil to Replace Conventional Catheter Lubricants

Lubrication is essential to prevent urethral trauma and pain for individuals who self-catheterize. In order to prevent pain associated with urinary catheterization, manufacturers in the ultrasound gels market are increasing the production of silicone oil. This oil is used as an innovative catheter lubricant. As such, the surgical lubricant gels & catheter gels product segment of the ultrasound gels market is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period.

Silicone oil is increasingly replacing well-known catheter lubricants, such as K-Y jelly and hydrophilic coating. Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common complication during urinary catheterization. Since silicone oil has antimicrobial properties, companies in the ultrasound gels market are increasing awareness about the advantages of silicone oil. Nontoxicity attribute of silicone oil has helped manufacturers to boost its uptake in the ultrasound gels market. This trend is acquiring increased popularity in hospitals and diagnostic centers, as clinicians are using silicon oil medical equipment, owing to its safe and nontoxic properties.

Portable ECG Devices Increase Demand for ECG Gels in Homecare Settings

Lack of handy diagnostic devices at clinics has catalyzed the demand for portable ECG monitors. This trend is gaining prominence even in homecare settings. For instance, founder and lead scientist of Anusandhan Technologies, developed a next-gen portable ECG monitor and analyzer, CardioMon, to increase the availability of handy diagnostic devices. Thus, healthcare providers in the market for ultrasound gels are recommending the use of ECG gels to improve contact with electrodes that are placed directly on the body.

Growing adoption of portable ECG devices is anticipated to boost the use of ECG gels. As such, the ECG gels product segment of the ultrasound gels market is estimated to reach a value of ~US$ 171 Mn by the end of 2027. Hence, increase in usage of ECG devices with gels in homecare settings has created new revenue streams for manufacturers in the ultrasound gels market. Portable ECG devices are not only improving patient quality of life but are also preventing loss of life in urgent or emergency cases.

Does GIS Offers Better Analysis of Menorrhagia Causes than SIS?

Menorrhagia is the condition of heavy menstrual bleeding that lasts for more than seven days. Substantial prevalence of menorrhagia among women has given rise to transvaginal ultrasound paired with GIS (Gel Infusion Sonography) and SIS (Saline Infusion Sonography) to identify the causes of the deteriorating health condition. Thus, there is a demand for obstetric gels to assess results after the ultrasound procedure. Though obstetric gels do not sum up to a high revenue as compared to catheter or ECG gels in the ultrasound gels market, prevalence of menorrhagia has catalyzed the demand for obstetric gels.

The image quality of saline is found to be superior as compared to obstetric gels. However, obstetric gels are growing popular for their excellent distention properties as compared to saline in the ultrasound gels market. Thus, healthcare providers in the ultrasound gels market are recommending the combination of SIS and GIS to effectively identify and treat the causes of menorrhagia.

Companies Increase Availability of Gel Warmers and Water-based Formulations to Boost Uptake

The ultrasound gels market is largely fragmented with tier 3 players accounting for a share of ~60-70% of the market share. However, growing popularity of gel-free ultrasound procedures poses as a challenge for manufacturers in the ultrasound gels market. Hence, manufacturers are introducing gel warmers to healthcare providers who have budget-constraints, especially in developing economies. Since not all hospitals and diagnostic centers have the budget for gel-free ultrasound procedures, manufacturers are increasing the availability of gel warmers to cater to the convenience of end users.

On the other hand, manufacturers are innovating in water-based formulations to improve outcomes in patients. These novel formulations are being increasingly used as lubricants and ultrasound scanning gels. As such, the ultrasound gels product segment of the ultrasound gels market is projected for exponential growth during the forecast period. This segment  is anticipated to reach a value of ~US$ 300 Mn by 2027. In order to boost the uptake of ultrasound gels, manufacturers are increasing awareness about gels manufactured using filtered water.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Since surgical lubricant gels & catheter gels product segment of the ultrasound gels market is projected for exponential growth during the forecast period, manufacturers are increasing production capabilities to develop biocompatible lubricants. These lubricants are being used in challenging medical applications, owing to their chemically inert and non-degradation attributes.

Gel warmers cater to the comfort of individuals during ultrasound procedures. However, high risks of acquiring skin infections pose as a challenge for healthcare providers, since bacteria grows faster at higher temperatures. Hence, manufacturers should introduce novel water-based formulations that are bacteriostatic and develop odorless hypoallergenic formulations that reduce bacterial infection and skin irritation in individuals.
