Gynecological Devices Market to be worth US$ 4.5 Billion by 2024
The Global Gynecological Devices Market was valued at US$ 2,667.8 million in 2015 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period (2016–2024), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights. Increasing incidence of gynecological disorders is projected to favor the growth for gynecological devices market in the near future.
Around 10% of the global female population is affected by endometriosis according to the estimates by Endmoetriosis UK (2016). Risk of gynecological disorders increases with age. According to the World Bank, female population aged 65 years and above increased exponentially from 6.8% in 2010 to 8.2% in 2015. Furthermore, changing lifestyle habits and risk of infection is expected to result in high incidence of gynecological disorders. The outlook for the gynecological devices market is therefore bright in the foreseeable future.
Safety is one of the major concerns of healthcare practitioners using gynecological devices. Bayer’s Essure is an intra-uterine device (IUD) that has been linked with skin rashes and pelvic pain in women (in the U.S.) who have inserted it as a permanent contraceptive solution. This has led women to remove the Essure through surgery. The U.S. FDA has called for a black box warning for the device. Furthermore, the FDA has also asked manufacturers of power morcellators to mention a warning that the product ‘has not been proved to reduce the risk of spreading cancer’. Power morcellators are used to dissect and remove uterus or uterine fibroids through small incisions. However, these devices are reported to cause uterine cancer, which remain undetected owing to lack of awareness.
Post-surgical complications are among the most frequent complications in abdominopelvic surgery. Endometriosis and infection in pelvic region can stimulate the formation of adhesions, which may lead to discomfort, chronic pain and infertility. Actamax Surgical Materials LLC (subsidiary of DSM Biomedical), submitted an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) to the U.S. FDA in February 2017 for its Actamax adhesion barrier to be utilized in in gynecological laparoscopic surgery. Such innovative solutions for the existing concerns on the gynecological surgeries would favor the growth of gynecological devices market globally.
Being a very intimate category of devices, safety is therefore the priority for users. Manufacturers need to gather enough evidences of safety and efficacy to avoid post-marketing recalls and regulatory hurdles. Specialized speculums, curettes, and forceps ease the surgical procedures. Demand for gynecological chairs is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period as hospitals upgrade their infrastructure, especially in emerging economies such as India, China, and Brazil.
