Report Overview

The global colposcopy market size was valued at USD 171.5 million in 2017. It is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period. Rising prevalence of cervical cancer and high demand for early diagnostic techniques are among the key growth stimulants for the market. There is a high mortality rate from cervical cancer worldwide, with around 90.0% of related death occurring in low and middle-income countries, as per the findings of the WHO. This can be managed by early diagnostics and screening programs helping in the detection of disease at an early phase.

China Colposcopy Market size

Growing geriatric population is also leading to an increased number of cases of cervical cancer worldwide. Women are becoming increasingly aware about gynecological diseases, which is followed by a rise in spending on personal health and regular checkups. Improving healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies coupled with government initiatives to spread awareness about different types of cancer occurring in women is working in favor of the overall market.

Developing countries are focusing on the increasing reach of cancer screening programs, which in turn is expected to boost the adoption of colposcopes. In addition, major market players are trying to introduce advanced technologies by integrating various digital platforms with colposcopy equipment. Integration is paving way for high-resolution imaging devices, which are likely to replace traditional colposcopes, thereby influencing market dynamics.

Increasing image output quality is poised to improve diagnostic accuracy in the early stages of diseases and thus may lead to a complete cure. Governments in developing economies such as India and China are increasing their focus on providing cost-effective medical imaging solutions by adapting various imaging technologies including telemedicine.

Modality Insights

On the basis of modality, the market is segmented into optical and video. The video segment is estimated to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. Video modality provides visual clarity and motion pictures, which help accurate diagnosis. Optical modality is the traditional method of colposcopy. The segment represented approximately 59.0% of the market in 2017. Adoption of optical colposcopes is significant in developing countries. High affordability, easy installation, and low maintenance are the key factors ensuring the dominance of the segment through 2025.

Portability Insights

By portability, the colposcopy market has been bifurcated into stationary and handheld systems. Stationary systems dominated the market in 2017. They are traditional equipment, available at lower prices than their countertype, thereby increasing their demands in organizations with limited budgets.

Handheld systems are advanced and being increasingly preferred to stationary due to their mobility. The demand for these devices is projected to be high in physicians’ offices, where the area occupied by a device is an important factor. The segment is expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate during the forecast period, owing to new product launches and technological advancements in the field. For instance, MobileODT launched EVA COLPO, which is a portable, internet-enabled system and is user-friendly.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is classified into oral and pelvic exams. Colposcopes are used by gynecologists and general physicians for analyzing lesions and other abnormalities. Oral application of colposcopes includes diagnosis of oral submucous fibrosis and other conditions related to the uvula.

Global Colposcopy Market share

Pelvic was the most prominent application segment in 2017. It is anticipated to post a higher CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. Pelvic colposcopy examinations are used to analyze inflammation, infection, cancerous changes, and traumatic injuries in vagina and cervix.

Regional Insights

Geographically, the market is segmented into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America was at the forefront of the market in terms of revenue in 2017 owing to the heightened adoption of advanced technology, higher health coverage, and the rising prevalence of cervical cancer.

Asia Pacific is likely to witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to the widening pool of patients suffering from cervical cancer and increasing penetration of medical imaging technology. Improving healthcare infrastructure and growing spending on gynecological disorders are playing a vital role in the development of the regional market. Incidence and mortality rates of cervical cancer are higher in developing countries. It can be reduced by implementing a program that provides early diagnosis and effective treatment.

Colposcopy Market Share Insights

Some of the key players in this market are Karl Kaps GmbH & Co. KG; Carl Zeiss; Cooper Surgical, Inc.; DYSIS Medical Ltd.; ATMOS Medizin Technik GmbH & Co. KG; Olympus Corporation; McKesson Medical-Surgical Inc.; Ecleris S.R.L.; Optomic; and Seiler Instrument Inc.

Regional & service portfolio expansions and mergers & acquisitions are key strategies adopted by these players. For instance, in September 2016, DYSIS introduced an advanced imaging technique that has the ability to detect neoplasia and precancerous cells, which would be helpful in diagnosing cancer.
