Edges of 2D Laparoscopy Imaging Systems to Fillip the Leap of 3D Laparoscopy Imaging Systems Market

A recent Transparency Market Research (TMR) study examined the potential of the 3D laparoscopy imaging systems market, spanning 5 key regions, and documented high-to-low impact trends and notable developments. As per the findings, the 3D laparoscopy imaging systems market is on track to record a valuation of ~ US$ 4 billion by 2027, representing a real shift of medical personnel from using 2D laparoscopy imaging systems.

The question is no longer confined as to how quickly 3D laparoscopy imaging systems will overtake 2D systems; it is how 3D will lead and grab opportunities from invasive surgeries and aid surgeons bundle a patient-centric offering. As patients leading demanding lifestyles tend to prefer minimally-invasive procedures, manufacturers will enjoy better penetration of 3D laparoscopy imaging systems.

Growth of the market will also gain momentum owing to the rising number of bariatric surgeries being performed. As surgeons require a stereoscopic vision of anatomy for an accurate dissection prior to the surgery, the application scope of 3D laparoscopy imaging systems is likely to expand in bariatric surgeries. However, amidst the steady growth of the industry, challenges from technologically-driven 3D laparoscopy imaging systems flag the affordability issue, which is likely to crop up, especially in the developing countries.

To put this in perspective, 'high cost' can limit the growth of the landscape, and it will become a deciding factor for the shift from 2D to 3D laparoscopy imaging systems. Overall, the industry will progress at a compound annual growth rate of 4.5 percent during the forecast period of 2019-2027.

2D to 3D - The Shift is Underway

As the healthcare industry harnesses the power of technology to develop patient-centric treatment options, 3D laparoscopy imaging systems will dim the market value of 2D systems. 3D laparoscopy imaging systems offer enhanced operative vision with a binocular-depth perception that is absent in 2D laparoscopy imaging systems. Growth in the number of surgeries using advanced laparoscopy imaging systems is further increasing the reliance of surgeons on these units, given their better performance and lower error rates.

Beside surgeons, 3D laparoscopic procedures also gain the favorability of patients. Patients show a high proclivity for minimally-invasive procedures, given their emphasis on less blood loss, smaller scars, reduced pain, better recovery times, and shorter stay, which is likely to uptake the demand for 3D laparoscopy imaging systems during the forecast period.

Inpatient to Outpatient Settings - A Notable Shift to Focus On

Unsurprisingly, hospitals hold a leading stance in the 3D laparoscopy imaging systems market, on account of discretionary spending by government bodies in the form of grants for innovation in medical devices and establishment of new hospitals. The adoption of 3D laparoscopy imaging systems at a CAGR of ~ 5% in hospitals during the forecast period represents the traditional preference for inpatient settings; however, as ambulatory surgical centers and clinics bank big on minimal wait times, easy scheduling, affordability, and better recovery times, outpatient settings are likely to grow in terms of popularity, in the future, for various surgeries.

The deployment of 3D laparoscopy imaging systems will remain high for bariatric surgeries, which is gaining popularity among the obese and diabetic populace. Bariatric surgeries remain a key revenue pocket for the 3D laparoscopy imaging systems market, currently holding a share of ~ 33 percent, and increasing its revenue share at an exponential rate.

New dimensions to 3D laparoscopy imaging systems are likely to emerge from gynecological surgeries, as gynecologists seek extended range of motion and improved hand-eye coordination. Currently, gynecological surgeries account for ~ 29 percent of the global sales of 3D laparoscopy imaging systems, and this segment is likely to grow at a CAGR of ~ 5 percent during the forecast period, as patients are drawn towards technologically-advanced healthcare procedures for better outcomes.

Will Robotic Systems Ambush Market Growth?

As the healthcare industry looks at the technology that blurs the boundary separating near-accurate and accurate surgeries, the rise of robotic systems will play a central role. A high level of dexterity with improved movement as compared to a human hand or wrist has been the key distinguishing proposition for robotic systems, thereby paling the popularity of 3D laparoscopy imaging systems.

Should market players worry about this?

The answer is - No. Though robotic systems are deemed efficient with a low risk of infection and blood loss, 3D laparoscopy imaging systems tend to outperform these systems in selected procedures, such as mitral valve repair and keyhole surgeries. Robotic procedures require more operative time as compared to 3D laparoscopy imaging systems. For instance, robotic procedures take around 224 minutes for a mitral valve repair surgery, while the same can be performed using laparoscopic systems in 180 minutes, with lesser blood transfusion. In addition, market players can renew the interest of surgeons in 3D laparoscopy imaging systems by employing a price-competitive strategy to regain the paling strength of the market, as the price of robotic systems is on the higher side.
