Report Overview

The global myomectomy market size was valued at USD 555.1 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.1% from 2020 to 2027. The increasing number of patients suffering from uterine fibroids and associated conditions, the growing number of less invasive procedures, and the rising adoption of technologically advanced devices for safe and effective myomectomy procedures are the major factors expected to drive the market. Patients suffering from uterine fibroid problem represent a huge market growth for the market. A myomectomy is the most effective way to treat fibroids and simultaneously preserves the uterus. There are different ways to perform a myomectomy procedure depending on the size and location of the fibroids. As per NCBI, it is estimated that around 77.0% of women of childbearing age could have the uterine fibroids, and around 50 to 75% cases remain asymptomatic and often remain undiagnosed.

The U.S. myomectomy market size

According to the NCBI study report, in the U.S. around 30,000 myomectomy procedures are performed annually for fibroids. Thus, the rising prevalence of uterine fibroids is increasing the demand for myomectomy procedures across the globe. The launch of technologically advanced products due to the increasing number of myomectomy procedures for uterine fibroids is likely to boost the market growth. Technological advancements such as introduction of laparoscopic or robotically assisted myomectomy procedures have shown incisionless surgery with no or minimal side effects for fibroids treatment. As compared to the open abdominal myomectomy surgery, with robotic myomectomy patient experience less blood loss with fewer complication rates, have a shorter hospital stay and returns to normal activities more quickly. Thus, the use of robots for myomectomy surgery and their several advantages over conventional laparoscopy (open surgery), have been widely accepted and incorporated in the field of reproductive surgery. Thus, key market players such as CONMED Corporation; Medtronic; Stryker Corporation; Johnson and Johnson Services, Inc.; Intuitive Surgical; and Minerva Surgical, Inc. are involved in extensive R&D exercises to develop advanced products and are making constant efforts for introducing technologically advanced products in the market. This is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Furthermore, an increase in the number of patient preference for non-invasive or minimally invasive treatment is expected to boost market growth during the forecast period. Recently, numerous minimal/non-invasive myomectomy techniques have been introduced into the market to destroy fibroids effectively and preserve the normal uterus for future pregnancy. Nowadays, less invasive treatments such as laparoscopic, or robotically-assisted myomectomy procedures using technologically advanced devices are the choice of treatment options among women.

These devices produce a high-energy wave, which heats and destroys small areas of fibroid tissue without any incision. Such procedures offer incisionless surgeries with no pain and blood loss and require no hospitalization and quicker recovery. In addition, this procedure also preserves the uterus, cervix, and ovaries, which are helpful for childbearing reproductive-age women. Such techniques are comforting the patients during the procedures, and thereby improving patient compliance. This is expected to boost the market growth.

In recent years, countries such as the U.S. and Canada have witnessed an increased number of myomectomy surgeries due to the rising number of patients suffering from uterine fibroids and related indications. In the U.S., uterine fibroids are the leading indication for myomectomy procedures. For instance, according to the Rochester Regional Health article, around 65,000 myomectomy procedures are performed every year in the U.S., and most of them are performed for uterine fibroids. Similarly, as per the Canadian Cancer Society, an estimated 7,400 Canadian women will be diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2020. Since uterine cancer supports the growth of fibroids; Myomectomy is required to perform such procedures. This is anticipated to boost market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, favorable reimbursement structure and well-established healthcare infrastructure in these countries is another major factor contributing to the growth of the myomectomy market.

Additionally, increased initiatives taken by the government and non-profit organizations for the treatment of fibroids are expected to boost market growth during the forecast period. Some of the notable programs are the Fibroids Project, White Dress Project, HealthyWomen.org, Fibroid and Fertility Coach and author, and Center for Innovative GYN Care. For instance, the Healthy Women Project's mission is to engage and educate on new, FDA-approved treatments and procedures. They have strong partnerships with both patients and health professional organizations and promote extended audiences with program and campaign offerings through social media. This is expected to positively impact market growth during the forecast period.
