Global Hysteroscopes Market 2016-2020

About Hysteroscopes

A hysteroscope is a device that is used to see inside the uterus during a procedure. It carefully analyses the uterine cavity and detects the cause of infertility. It is also helpful in detecting intrauterine lesions, myomas, malformations, carcinoma, and polyps present inside the uterus. Hysteroscopy also provides treatment for abnormalities and is effective in improving pregnancy rates in sub-fertile women. The reasons for adopting hysteroscopy is due to the prevalence of gynecological problems such as bleeding between periods, after menopause, and after sex. The treatment usually takes 35 to 40 minutes.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global hysteroscopes market to grow at a CAGR of 4.56% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Hysteroscopes Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global hysteroscopes market: Hologic, Karl Storz, Olympus Medical, and Stryker.

Other prominent vendors in the market are: Braun Melsungen, Dimeda Instrumente, EMOS Technology, EndoLook, Ethicon, Henke-Sass, Maxerendoscopy, MedGyn, Optec Endoscopy Systems, Optomic, Richard Wolf, SCHÖLLY FIBEROPTIC, Smith & Nephew, SOPRO-COMEG, TIMESCO, Vimex, WISAP, and Xion Medical.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of latest trends in the market is emergence of miniaturized hysteroscopes. The emergence of miniaturized hysteroscopes is likely to have a positive impact on the market growth, owing to increased advantages over traditional hysteroscopes. For instance, the market has seen the development office hysteroscopy, which is associated with the use of advanced miniaturized hysteroscopes. Some of the advantages include pain free, and less surgery time. Also, the surgery can be performed in the first consultation. Further, hospitalization is not required after the surgery. For instance, with the use of KARL STORZ’s BETTOCCHI integrated office hysteroscope, many procedures can be performed with minimal trauma and without the requirement of general anesthesia. Further, office hysteroscopes reduce the costs to around 40%-60%, as it excludes hospital and anesthetic costs. For clinicians, the procedure provides many advantages such as accurate diagnosis of endometrial pathologies, improved visualization, and less time consumption. Therefore, it attracts more patients and clinicians in the regions where there are budget constraints.”

According to the report, one of the primary drivers in the market is presence of large patient pool fuels market growth. The presence of large patient pool is expected to drive the market growth. The growing incidence of chronic disorders such as infertility, cervical cancer, Asherman’s syndrome, endometrial polyp, endometrial ablation, myomectomy, congenital uterine malformations are expected to propel the market growth. The market is primarily driven by the rising incidence of infertility. In the US, about 5%-8% of married women aged 20-45 are infertile. In Europe, more than six million women experience fertility-related problems and seek treatment every year. Thus, diagnosis and treatment of issues such as endometriosis and abnormalities in the uterus will drive the sales of hysteroscopes. Cervical cancer continues to be a leading cause of death. It accounts for about 15% of all cancers in women younger than 40 years. The growing awareness of cervical cancer will increase the uptake of hysteroscopes, owing to its widespread usage to treat cervical cancer.

Further, the report states that one major challenge in the market is presence of alternative procedures. Hysteroscopy procedures are painful and require sedation. Hence, they are slowly being replaced by non-invasive procedures such as nuclear or molecular imaging techniques such as MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, and PET. Also, the increasing adoption of alternative treatment approaches such as laparoscopic and robotic surgeries hinder the growth prospects in the market. For instance, laparoscopy can help physicians diagnose several gynaecological conditions, including endometriosis, uterine fibroids and other abnormalities, adhesions, ovarian cysts, and ectopic pregnancy. As the incisions involved in laparoscopy are typically small (less than 1 inch), there is an increased demand for such procedures. Further, with the help of operative laparoscopy, diseased and damaged ovaries can be removed easily when required.
