Report Overview

The global uterine fibroid treatment device market size was valued at USD 4.6 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.5% from 2020 to 2027. High prevalence of uterine fibroids among women across the world, rising patients’ preference for minimally invasive procedures, and adoption of technologically advanced products are the major factors expected to drive the market. Uterine fibroid (UF) is the benign tumor of the smooth muscle cells formed in the woman’s uterus and these can lead to excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, infertility, and frequent urination. Despite being the fact that their cause is still unknown, its risk factors include race, age, familial predisposition, premenopausal state, hypertension, overweight, and diet. About 50 to 75% of UF cases remain asymptomatic, consequently, get less clinical attention, and often remain undiagnosed.

U.S. uterine fibroid treatment device market size

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 11.7% of women aged between 40-44 years had a hysterectomy from 2006-2010. Every year in the U.S., more than 600,000 hysterectomies (surgical removal of their uterus) and around 20 million women have had a hysterectomy. However, it has been observed that at least 80,000 of those hysterectomies may be unnecessary and could be avoided as per the article issued in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. This is anticipated to boost the market growth.

Moreover, a rise in patients’ preference for minimally and non-invasive fibroids surgeries are expected to boost the market growth. Smaller incisions decrease post-operative pain and facilitate speedy recovery, thus leading to high adoption of these procedures. Several key players are investing in R&D for the launch of innovative minimally and non-invasive surgical instruments. For instance, the MR-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) used for the treatment of uterine fibroids is one of the incisionless procedures that is widely recommended by physicians. In this procedure, the device produces ultrasound beams, thus heating and removing targeted tissue from the uterine cavity. This is a non-invasive treatment and therefore has slight to no side effects and patients may return to normal activity within a few days. Thus, growing demand for such procedures due to minimal pain, efficacy, less chance of infection, and speedy recovery as compared to open surgeries is anticipated to boost the demand for uterine fibroids treatment devices.

Several initiatives are being undertaken by various governments and private organizations to increase awareness related to early fibroids diagnosis and treatment. For instance, in the U.S., July is being recognized as “Fibroids Awareness Month”. In recent years, there have been increased awareness efforts made related to uterine fibroids. Some of the notable programs are the White Dress Project, HealthyWomen.org, Fibroids Project, and Center for Innovative GYN Care. The White Dress Project organization aims for fibroids awareness, which includes raising funds for research as well as educating women on the basics. This project encourages and supports women to become members and share their experiences. In addition, the Fibroids Project is an online website and community, which is devoted to helping women become fibroids-free. Their mission is to provide both women and medical professionals with all the information on current research, programs, and procedures. This growing awareness among women regarding the treatment of uterine fibroids and initiatives is likely to boost the market growth.

Countries such as the U.S. and Canada have witnessed increasing cases of uterine fibroids and a growing number of surgeries in recent years. In the U.S., uterine fibroids are the foremost indication for hysterectomy, which accounts for 39% of all hysterectomies performed annually. In addition, as per the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, in the U.S., over one-third of hysterectomies are performed for uterine fibroids. Furthermore, as per the Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology Canada (JOGC), over 41, 000 hysterectomies are performed every year in Canada. Uterine fibroids treatment devices are required to perform such procedures, and thus it is anticipated to boost the market growth over the forecast period.

Additionally, an increasing number of cases of uterine fibroids related disorders in the developed and developing countries has driven the launch of technologically advanced products in the market. For instance, Channel Medsystem’s Cerene Cryotherapy device is used in the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding. This device uses extreme cold to destroy the lining of the uterus tissues so as to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding without giving general anesthesia. In addition, Insightec’s MR-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) used for the treatment of uterine fibroids. This procedure is incisionless and produces ultrasound beams, thus heating and removing targeted tissue from the uterine cavity. Thus, market players are making constant efforts for introducing technologically advanced products in the market.

Technology Insights

On the basis of technology, the market is segmented into surgical techniques, laparoscopic techniques, ablation techniques, and embolization techniques. The surgical techniques segment dominated the overall market with a share of 33.9% in 2019. This is due to an increasing number of hysterectomy and myomectomy surgical procedures as these are the most performed procedures for fibroids treatment in women. In addition, this technique is the most preferred and proven permanent solution for uterine fibroids treatment. Thus, an increasing number of related surgeries are expected to fuel segment growth.

The ablation techniques segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 10.2% from 2020 to 2027. This is a minimally invasive technique that surgically ablates the endometrium lining of the uterus. This is a common surgical treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding. No incisions are needed for endometrial ablation and can be done in the doctor's office without giving general anesthesia. Moreover, pregnancy is possible after the endometrial ablation procedure. Thus, benefits offered by ablation techniques are expected to fuel the segment growth.

Mode Of Treatment Insights

On the basis of mode of treatment, the market is segmented into invasive, minimally invasive, and non-invasive treatment. The invasive treatment segment dominated the overall market with a share of 44.0% in 2019. This is attributed to increasing cases of uterine fibroids and associated symptoms in women around the world. As abdominal myomectomy and hysterectomy are gold-standard procedures for the uterine fibroids treatment and have achieved widespread acceptance due to their cost-effectiveness. Thus, these factors are anticipated to increase the demand for uterine fibroids treatment devices during the forecast period.
