Dublin, Feb. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "U.S. Stethoscope Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Technology Type (Electronic/Digital, Smart, Traditional Acoustic), By Sales Channel (Distributors, E-commerce), By End Use, By State, And Segment Forecasts, 2021 - 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The U.S. stethoscope market size is expected to reach USD 211.06 million by 2028 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2028

The increasing application of digital stethoscopes in the diagnosis of chronic conditions and rapid technological advancements in stethoscopes are expected to significantly boost the adoption of these devices over the forecast period.

In addition, with the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases, there will be a significant increase in the use of stethoscopes in the country. Since COVID-19 is extremely infectious and a respiratory ailment, initial detection by listening to the lungs and heart is of the utmost importance in any clinical setting.

Hence, the market is expected to witness significant and continuous growth even after the end of the pandemic. Moreover, the launch of a 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.

The incorporation of new technologies and the introduction of innovative products by key market players are expected to propel market growth during the forecast period.

For instance, 3M has launched 'Single-Patient Stethoscope' to overcome the issues associated with current disposable stethoscope options such as inadequate audibility and uncomfortableness faced by healthcare professionals. It also helps in minimizing the risk of cross-contamination in an isolation environment.
