North America gynecological devices market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The growing prevalence of gynecological disorders is expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. Endometriosis, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), adenomyosis, and uterine fibroids are the most common conditions. According to an article published in the Frontiers Journal in 2021, PCOS population-based pool prevalence is around 5 to 9% globally. Hence, the growing prevalence of these conditions is leading to a rising number of regular check-ups and surgical procedures. For instance, as per the Office on Women's Health (OWH), in the U.S., around 500,000 women opt for hysterectomy, which is the second-most common surgery performed among females.

Moreover, the increasing volume of surgical procedures, such as female sterilization, ablation, endoscopy, and laparoscopy, and increasing usage of disposable products are expected to boost the product demand. The rising adoption of advanced and innovative technologies is also expected to propel industry growth. For instance, in March 2022, Endoluxe, a California-based company, launched Endoluxe eVS, HD wireless endoscopic camera equipped with TowerTech for gynecological, urological, ENT, orthopedics, and general surgery. The market is highly regulated to enhance and ensure the safety of the devices. For instance, gynecological devices are classified under classes I, II, and III by the U.S. FDA.

COVID-19 gynecological devices market impact: 10.3% growth from 2020 to 2021

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The pandemic has drastically affected the industry owing to the cancellation and postponement of elective surgeries. For instance, as per the article published in Virtual Health Library, around 28 million surgeries were canceled or postponed during the pandemic. In Brazil, around a 33.4% decrease in surgical procedures was reported after the postponement of non-essential and elective surgeries by the National Health Agency (ANS) and National Health Surveillance Agency

The industry is expected to witness lucrative growth in the near future owing to the adoption of advanced technologies and an increasing number of surgeries globally. For instance, Boston Scientific Corp. reported an 18% increase in consolidated net sales for endoscopy and a 13.3% increase in the urology and pelvic health segment

The industry was highly impacted by the decline in the number of visits for gynecological conditions. For instance, in 2020, around 90% and 77% decrease in visits for gynecological problems from 2019 was reported by Allegheny Health and John Hopkins, respectively

The pandemic accelerated the digital transformation in the healthcare sector including the digitalization of medical devices. The use of AI and ML will increase the management of gynecological disorders using gynecological devices. For instance, in November 2021, Hologic, Inc. launched the Global Endometrial Ablation (GEA) device, NovaSure V5 at the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL). The device is updated with EndoForm technology and can accommodate a range of anatomical and cervical canal variabilities


The Asia Pacific Association for Gynecologic Endoscopy and Minimally Invasive Therapy regulates the use of endoscopic devices for gynecology in the Asia Pacific region. A rise in the number of unintended pregnancies during the pandemic resulted in unsafe abortions or some gynecological conditions. This has led to an increase in gynecological surgical volumes globally. According to the United Nations, around 60% of pregnancies globally are unintended and around 45% of unintended pregnancies lead to unsafe abortion.

Product Insights

Based on products, the industry has been segmented into surgical devices, gynecological imaging devices, and handheld instruments. The surgical devices segment dominated the industry in 2022 and accounted for the largest share of 50.01% of the global revenue. The segment is expected to witness the highest growth with a CAGR of 9.10% over the forecast period. High usage of female contraceptives and endoscopic devices is anticipated to support the dominance of the segment throughout the forecast period. For instance, CooperSurgical reported a 26% increase in net sales for office and surgical products used by obstetricians/gynecologists in the hospitals. Moreover, the demand for easily autoclavable and highly durable surgical instruments has been rising due to the increasing surgical procedure volumes globally.

Rising awareness regarding birth control devices and surgeries is also estimated to boost segment growth. In addition, the growing number of female sterilization procedures is playing a vital role in the development of the market. As per the Contraceptive Use by Method 2019, by United Nations, around 842 million women among 1.9 million women of reproductive age use modern methods of contraception globally. Approximately 11.5% and 8.4% of women of reproductive age use female sterilization and Intrauterine Devices (IUDs), respectively as contraceptive methods, which is highest among other contraceptives.

The diagnostic imaging systems segment is expected to witness a lucrative CAGR during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the rising number of intended and unintended pregnancies globally. As per the United Nations Population Fund, around 121 million pregnancies each year are unintended, which accounts for approximately 50% of overall pregnancies globally. The imaging systems, such as ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and plain radiography, are utilized to investigate and determine potential harmful conditions in the pregnancy.

End-use Insights

On the basis of end-uses, the global industry has been further segmented into hospitals & clinics and Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs). The hospitals & clinics segment dominated the industry in 2022 and accounted for the largest share of more than 64.85% of the overall revenue. The high share is mainly attributed to the increased demand for gynecological surgeries and the adoption of innovative technologies in hospitals & clinics. Advanced technologies are feasible surgical options and offer a better experience. For instance, in January 2022, The Women’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial, HCA Florida Healthcare’s Kendall Regional Medical Center, and AdventHealth Celebration started using the Hominis Surgical System, robotic surgical technology by Memic Innovative Surgery for gynecological procedures.
