Global Bipolar Forceps Market: Overview
The global bipolar forceps market has been rising at a steady pace over the recent past. Bipolar forceps are avant-garde instruments, which are similar in shape to normal surgical forceps, but differ in functionality. While surgical forceps are used to open and hold tissue, bipolar forceps on the other hand, are meant to coagulate tissue. This involves changing the state of tissue into solid or semisolid by means of an electric current. They are used for procedures that require critically precise temperature control and help reduce sticking and charring while the tissues coagulate.
Bipolar forceps both handles and tips when used as a part of bipolar electrosurgical generator is indicated for coagulating, grasping, cauterizing, and manipulating tissue during general surgery.
Bipolar forceps are named so because the forceps are connected to a bipolar cable that offers a bipolar energy output provided by an electrosurgical generator. In bipolar forceps, the bipolar cable is attached to a connector at the back of the forceps. The electrical current in bipolar forceps is not constant, and is controlled by the surgeon who uses a switch or pump to turn on the current when needed. Bipolar forceps can be used as regular surgical forceps when current is not flowing.
Available in a wide variety of tip style and tine lengths, bipolar forceps provide prompt coagulation with low thermal spread. This results in less collateral damage to surrounding tissue. Bipolar forceps made of highly pure silver alloy prevents sticking of tissues to the instrument.
Global Bipolar Forceps Market: Trends and Opportunities
Factors such as increasing prevalence of diseases that require microsurgeries, government initiatives for improvement of healthcare infrastructure, and rise in awareness about diseases and infections are primarily driving the bipolar forceps market.
Bipolar forceps are available in two types, namely disposable bipolar forceps and reusable bipolar forceps. Bipolar forceps find application in gynecology, otolaryngology, general surgery, neurosurgery, and others.
However, lack of skilled personnel and unavailability of cost effective instruments is challenging the growth of bipolar forceps market. Nevertheless, introduction of high grade stainless steel and titanium bipolar forceps with greater safety and precision is likely to further stoke demand for bipolar forceps. Modernization of healthcare facilities in developing countries is likely to offer numerous opportunities to the bipolar forceps market.
Global Bipolar Forceps Market: Geographical Outlook
North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America are the key regions for bipolar forceps. North America is a key market for bipolar forceps as the region is an early adopter of technologically advanced medical devices.
Europe accounts for significant demand for bipolar forceps due to the presence of a modern healthcare infrastructure.
Asia Pacific is anticipated to hold substantial share in the worldwide bipolar forceps market in the coming years. Rising awareness of availability of modern surgical devices in emerging economies is stoking demand for bipolar forceps for microsurgery. This is having a positive impact on the bipolar forceps market in the region.
