In addition, the growing prevalence of liver and gastrointestinal illnesses has raised interest in general medical procedures, which positively impacts market growth.

U.S. Trocars Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

In 2023, six out of ten Americans will have at least one chronic illness, such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and stroke, according to a report by the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. This is the main cause of disability and death in America, along with other chronic diseases, and is also the main contributor to health care expenses. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC ) estimates that 90% of the country's healthcare spending, or almost $4.1 trillion annually, is dedicated to treating mental health issues and chronic diseases.

Furthermore, most surgical procedures are performed on the geriatric population, which is more susceptible to chronic diseases like heart attack and cancer. According to the Asian Development Bank, the population of people aged 60 or more is likely to reach 1.3 billion by 2050. This population is expected to grow as the baby boomer generation ages. Therefore, it is anticipated that the industry's demand for surgical procedures will be driven by the growing geriatric population. Therefore, it is anticipated that the global market is expected to expand firmly during the forecast period due to the aforementioned factors.

Trocars are becoming more and more important in laparoscopic surgeries. Hence, the market for trocars is driven by several factors, including the number of laparoscopic surgeries performed annually and the growing popularity of minimally invasive surgeries. In addition, increasing R&D activity in the market, growing potential for growth in emerging economies, and rising technological advancements and modernization in the healthcare sector are anticipated to contribute to the market's expansion during the projected period.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

There is a considerable degree of innovation in the global market; new techniques and technologies are constantly being developed and released by key players.

Trocars Market Concentration & Characteristics

Several market players, such as CONMED Corporation, The Cooper Companies, Inc., Teleflex Incorporated, and Medtronic, are involved in strategic activities like partnership, M&A, and new product development to expand their geographic reach and enter new territories.

Medical devices are frequently categorized according to risk, and each class is subject to different regulations. Trocars are surgical instruments, so they might need to undergo regulatory approval to guarantee their safety and efficacy. To guarantee the uniformity and calibre of their output, manufacturers are typically obliged to establish and maintain quality management systems (QMS). Regulatory bodies frequently mandate adherence to established standards like ISO 13485.

A trocar is a medical device that consists of a cannula, a seal, and an obturator with a metal or non-bladed tip. The trocar is an entry point for various tools, including staplers, scissors, and graspers. Trocars are highly useful devices that allow gas or liquid to escape from internal organs. Although trocars are frequently used in minimally invasive surgery, some other techniques and tools can be used to accomplish the same objectives. The following are some substitutes for trocars: Blunt tip trocars, Hasson Technique, Veress Needle, and Visual Entry Systems.

The end-user concentration factor is essential for any company in the trocars industry. In this dynamic and constantly changing market, companies can position themselves for success by comprehending the specific demands of each industry and customizing their solutions accordingly.

Product Type Insights

Based on product type, the disposable trocars segment led the market with largest revenue share of 63.90% in 2023.
