The global gynecology devices market size was valued at USD 12.67 billion in 2016 and is expected grow at a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period. Introduction of advanced devices which aid in increasing efficiency of minimally invasive procedures and high development of definition imaging devices such as 3D endoscope is primarily boosting the market growth.
The factors such as growing gynecological diseases prevalence and conditions associated with the female reproductive system such as cervical cancer, uterine cancer, polycystic ovary syndrome, vaginal melanoma, extended bleeding and irregular menstrual cycles are primarily resulting in increased demand for gynecological treatments. Moreover, rising awareness regarding benefits of regular check-ups is resulting in growth in a number of new cases of feminine disease and conditions registered each year.
According to the data published by the United Nations, global female population accounted for more than 3.64 billion in 2015. Common reasons for visits to gynecologist include menstrual problems and pregnancy. Increasing awareness and preventive check-ups to avoid late phase diagnosis of STDs are expected to boost the number of these visits. This is expected to propel the use of gynecological devices.
Furthermore, rising volume of surgical procedures such as ablation, laparoscopy, endoscopy, and female sterilization coupled with growing usage of single-use products is expected to augment the demand for gynecological products. Therefore, frequent introduction of technically advanced products is anticipated to push the global gynecological devices market towards swift growth.
However, stringent regulatory approval procedure to ensure the safety of the products is impeding the growth of the market. Furthermore, rapidly developing alternative therapies such as personalized medicines and improved drug therapies are challenging the growth of gynecological products.
Based on the product type, the global market is segmented into gynecological imaging, surgical, and hand devices. Surgical devices dominated the market with the largest share in 2015. High usage of endoscopy devices and female contraceptives is the factor which can be attributable to the largest share.
Need for highly durable and easily autoclavable surgical instruments has been growing increasingly owing to the growing number of surgical procedures globally. Advancement in technology and introduction of highly efficient devices which can provide quick and accurate diagnosis and minimize the operating time are the factors expected to give a boost to the market growth in the upcoming years.
Availability of various techniques of the surgical instruments such as hydrothermal, radiofrequency and balloon ablation techniques and development of devices to be used for multi purposes such as modular forceps and scissors system is expected to provide great scope to the future of the market. Growing awareness of the birth control devices and surgeries are expected to boost the market with growing number of female sterilization procedures.
Growth in procedural volume of hysterotomy, laparoscopy, and hysterectomy is pushing the growth of the endoscope market. Furthermore, user-friendly designs of the products are fuelling adoption of these devices since these devices support minimally invasive procedures. Thus, endoscopy accounted for the largest market share of around 54% in 2014 among other surgical devices market.
North America dominated the global gynecological device market and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to the factors such as availability of well-established healthcare infrastructure, high rate of awareness regarding the availability of diagnostic tests & treatments, and rising reimbursement coverage.
The Asia Pacific is anticipated to show lucrative growth during the forecast period. China and India together account for the largest population base in the world. Thus, the presence of large prospective patient pool creates fastest growth opportunities for gynecological device market in the region.
Government initiatives on controlling growing population in these countries through birth control programs. These programs are resulting in growth in awareness regarding contraceptive measures. China is one of the examples of the countries having birth control policies.
Many countries such as Japan, Bangladesh, and Vietnam show a high prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases in younger population owing to the lack of awareness and lack of easy access to the contraceptive products. Growing prevalence of these diseases is expected to aid in the market growth. Therefore, the Chinese market is expected to grow at the fastest growth rate from 2015 to 2022.
This industry is highly fragmented with the presence of many local players. Therefore, industry players practice merger and acquisition strategies to sustain the competition and increase the market share. Some of the leading players operating in the global market include Medtronic plc, CooperSurgical, Inc., Richard Wolf GmbH., Hologic, Inc., Boston Scientific Corporation, Stryker Corporation, Karl Storz GmbH & Co. KG, and Ethicon, Inc.
