Industry Insights

The global minimally invasive thoracic surgery market size was valued at USD 3.2 billion in 2016 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.69% over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as lung cancer that demands better, quicker, and patient-friendly diagnostic and therapeutic facilities, growing preference to the minimally invasive procedures and the technological advancements meeting patient needs. 

According to cancer statistics by the American Cancer Society, about 1.8 million new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed in 2012. Lung Cancer accounts for 20% of the cancer deaths worldwide and is preventable due to development of surgical procedures, which is expected to increase the demand for the Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) market.

U.S. minimally invasive thoracic surgery market

In 1994, Computer Motion introduced the Automated Endoscopic System for Optimal Positioning Robotic System (AESOP), which is a voice-activated robotic instrument to assist surgeons in minimally invasive surgeries. In 2001, the FDA approved ZEUS system, which was developed to assist surgeons, however; it was discontinued in 2003 following the merger of Intuitive Surgical and Computer Motion.

The da Vinci Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical Inc.) is the most frequently used computer-enhanced endoscopic system capable of laparoscopic surgery. The continuous and accelerated development of novel technologies indicates rapid advancements in the field of minimally invasive thoracic surgeries.

Geisinger Health System launched ProvenCare, which is an initiative providing the patients with the “guarantee” to cover all expenses that arise due to complications in the 90 days of follow-up admissions. Such initiatives help in quality improvement with reduction in surgical errors and complications while reducing costs.

Type Insights

Based on the type of surgeries, the market is segmented into lobectomy, wedge resection, pneumonectomy, and others. Lobectomy is the most commonly used operation for treating lung cancer. According to a 2011 study published in NCBI, which was conducted by the Cancer Care Outcomes Research and Surveillance (CanCORS), about 1200 patients were diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), out of which 955 patients underwent surgery. Around 524 patients opted for lobectomy, about 128 of them opted for pneumonectomy and 209 patients had opted for wedge resection, segmentectomy, sleeve lobectomy and laser excision. 

According to a 2016 survey published in the NCBI, the minimally invasive lobectomy procedures were found to have shorter median hospital length of stay, improved two-year survival, and increased 30-day readmission rate. Such benefits further help in higher adoption of the technology thereby rendering the market growth.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market owing to the presence of favorable scenario for technological advancements, which leads to the development of products that comply with the evolving patient needs, availability of newly introduced devices, the presence of skilled surgeons and organized regulatory and reimbursement bodies. 

As most of the patients undergoing these surgeries are old aged, Medicare reimbursement policy helps unburden the expenses and becomes an important aspect of the market growth. Other organizations delivering medical policies help in reducing the cost burden arising from the surgeries and the post-operative period.

Smoking is one of the direct risk factors associated with lung cancer. Majority of the cancer deaths are believed to be an outcome of smoking. Involvement of a person in this activity for a longer period increases the risk of lung cancer. North America and Northern Europe show high estimated rates of lung cancer due to high incidence rates of tobacco use. Thus, these areas are potential markets for minimally invasive surgeries as the high prevalence along with the availability of technologically advanced procedures favors the market growth.

Competitive Insights

Some key industry contributors are Medtronic plc, Cardio medical GmbH, Intuitive Surgical, Richard Wolf GmbH, Grena Ltd., Dextera Surgical Inc., Teleflex Incorporated, Medela Healthcare, LivaNova plc, Sklar Surgical Instruments

Continuous R&D activities by the industry players is a high impact-rendering driver of the market. In 2017, Intuitive Surgical announced da Vinci X, which is a new version of the technology that is a median between the da Vinci Si and the da Vinci Xi surgical system. Such initiatives by the company help in improving the penetration of the technology in the surgical market.
