Report Overview

The global uterine manipulation devices market size was valued at USD 245.76 million in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% from 2021 to 2028. The rising prevalence of diseases related to female reproductive organs, increase in the adoption of minimally invasive or noninvasive procedures, and technological advancements are among the major factors driving the market. The market has been adversely impacted by the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting significant aspects of various companies, such as product demand, operations, supply chain, distribution systems, and the ability to research and develop new products. Almost all the companies are affected by reduced procedure volume due to COVID-19 as all hospital resources are being diverted to combat the disease.

Nowadays, minimally invasive and noninvasive surgeries are gaining popularity owing to the reduced risk associated with these procedures. Smaller incisions decrease postoperative pain and facilitate speedy recovery, leading to the high adoption of these procedures. For instance, laparoscopic or robotic-assisted hysterectomy is a less invasive surgical technique performed to remove the uterus. A small incision is made in the lower abdomen and a miniature camera and small, specialized instruments are inserted and used for the removal process. Thus, the risk of blood loss and infection is lower in the case of minimally invasive procedures than open surgeries. Thus, an increase in patient preference for noninvasive or minimally invasive treatment and benefits offered by these techniques are expected to boost the market growth at a significant rate during the forecast period.

The high prevalence of disorders related to the female reproductive system in developed and developing countries has driven the launch of technologically advanced products in the market. Some of the key players operating in this market are CooperSurgical, Inc.; Stryker Corporation; KARL STORZ GmbH; CONMED Corporation; and Ethicon, Inc. Technological advancements such as the introduction of laparoscopic or robotic-assisted hysterectomy procedures have led to the adoption of incision-less surgery with no or minimal side effects. As compared to open abdominal hysterectomy, robotic-assisted hysterectomy provides advantages such as less blood loss, fewer complications, and faster return to normal activities. Thus, the use of robots, owing to their several advantages over conventional laparoscopy (open surgery), has been widely accepted and incorporated in the field of reproductive surgery. This is expected to be a high-impact rendering driver of the market.

In addition, key companies operating in the market for uterine manipulation devices are adopting strategies such as mergers & acquisitions and partnerships, to strengthen their product portfolios, manufacturing capacities, and provide competitive diversity. For instance, in May 2020, Minerva Surgical, Inc. acquired the Intrauterine Health Products segment from Boston Scientific Corporation. The products include Resectr Tissue Resection Device; Symphion Tissue Removal System; and the Genesys HTA System, which are used for the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding.

Application Insights

In 2020, the total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 38.88%. TLH is performed for treating conditions such as fibroids, pelvic pain, painful or heavy menstrual periods, pre-cancer or cancer in the uterus, endometriosis or adenomyosis, or prolapse. It is an in-patient procedure and is usually performed under general anesthetic and patients spend only a night in the hospital. It involves 2-4 weeks of recovery at home. Moreover, the recovery period associated with major abdominal hysterectomy is longer in comparison with laparoscopic surgery, which is leading to an increase in the preference for laparoscopic surgery. Thus, the segment is expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period.

The laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (LSH) segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. A laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (LSH) is also a minimally invasive procedure, which involves removing a uterus and leaving the cervix in place. It is performed to treat conditions or complications of the uterus such as endometriosis, fibroids, abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, and infection in ovaries/fallopian tubes. LSH is a partial hysterectomy that removes only the diseased uterus and preserves the cervix, and often ovaries, thus resulting in less pain, fewer adhesions, less technical difficulty, and quicker recovery than open surgery. This is supporting the segment growth.

End-use Insights

In 2020, the hospitals segment dominated the market with a share of 59.15%. The growth of this segment can mainly be attributed to an increase in the number of patients suffering from various gynecological conditions and a consequent rise in the number of surgical procedures. Hospitals offer superior care to patients and provide reimbursements for certain procedures, which is further contributing to the segment growth. Furthermore, hospitals are currently advancing in terms of technology. Technologically advanced devices are being used extensively in hospitals to provide better treatment. These devices are not only simplifying treatment procedures but also providing better, faster, and accurate results.

The ambulatory surgery centers segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. High preference for outpatient surgeries, increase in the adoption of minimally invasive surgeries, and cost-effectiveness of ambulatory surgery center-based laparoscopic procedures are among the key factors responsible for the lucrative growth of this segment. The lower risk of post-surgical complications in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery is expected to increase the demand for ambulatory surgery centers. They offer several advantages to patients including shorter procedure time and same-day discharge as compared to hospitals. Most intra-abdominal procedures can now be performed laparoscopically at ambulatory surgery centers as these are less invasive. Surgeries at ambulatory surgery centers not only have shorter stay duration but are also more affordable than inpatient procedures, which reduces patient expenditure. Thus, owing to the abovementioned factors, the ambulatory surgery centers segment is likely to witness rapid growth during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with a share of 35.67% in 2020 and is expected to witness considerable growth over the forecast period. This is owing to the increasing number of gynecology-related surgical procedures/hospital visits, the presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure, favorable reimbursement policies, and supportive regulatory reforms in the healthcare sector. According to CMS, healthcare spending in the U.S. increased by 4.6% and reached USD 3.8 trillion in 2019, accounting for approximately 17.7% of GDP. The national health spending is expected to grow at an annual rate of 5.4% from 2019 to 2028, to reach USD 6.2 trillion by the year 2028. The ease of access to healthcare technologies and the presence of strong distribution channels are also driving the adoption of uterine manipulation devices in the region.

The Asia Pacific market is anticipated to exhibit lucrative growth during the forecast period. The presence of a large patient pool and the growing need for technologically advanced and cost-effective healthcare solutions are among the factors expected to present significant growth opportunities for the market. Moreover, an increase in the number of clinical trials and high R&D investments by global market players to enter untapped markets in the Asia Pacific region owing to low-cost services are high-impact rendering drivers of the market. In addition, an increase in the number of hospitalizations and rapid advancements in the clinical development framework of developing economies are aiding market growth in this region.
