Stethoscope Market Growth & Trends

The global stethoscope market size is anticipated to reach USD 949.88 million by 2030. Furthermore, the report forecasts the industry to expand at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2022 to 2030. The increasing incidences of cardiovascular & pulmonary diseases, along with the growing application of digital stethoscopes in the diagnosis of such chronic conditions, are expected to boost the adoption of these devices significantly during the forecast period.

In addition, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the year 2020 significantly boosted the use of stethoscopes globally.Since COVID-19 is extremely infectious and a respiratory ailment, initial diagnosis by listening to the lungs and heart is of the utmost importance in any clinical setting.

Thus, the market is expected to witness substantial and continuous growth even after the end of the pandemic.

The launch of several government initiatives, the introduction of new products, and the incorporation of new technologies by market players are expected to propel the market during the projection period.For instance, 3M has launched the ‘Single-Patient Stethoscope’ to overcome the issues faced while using disposable stethoscopes, such as inadequate audibility & discomfort for healthcare professionals.

Also, the launch of digital/smart stethoscope that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to record and send recordings to physicians virtually allows them to maintain social distancing and reduce exposure to COVID-19.
