Risk of Aerosolization of Coronavirus May Hamper Market Growth

The laparoscopy devices market is projected to experience a slowdown during the COVID-19 outbreak, as minimally invasive surgical procedures carry the risk of aerosolization of blood-borne viruses. The SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) and the EAES (European Association for Endoscopic Surgeons) have recommended patients to postpone their surgeries if not urgent due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

SAGE and EAES have laid down guidelines of laparoscopic or robotic protective measures to be strictly employed for staff and patient safety. Due to the risk of contracting COVID-19, many patients have postponed their surgical procedures, which is anticipated to impact the revenue growth of the laparoscopy devices market.

Lack of High Quality Data Inhibits Adoption of Robot-assisted Laparoscopy

Surgical robots are being designed to address the limitations of conventional laparoscopy procedures. FDA (Food and Drug Administration)-approved da Vinci robots are becoming increasingly commonplace in the gynecologic surgery. However, training requirements and lack of high quality data act as barriers in the rapid adoption of robot-assisted laparoscopy, thus inhibiting the growth of the laparoscopy devices market. As such, less postoperative pain and shorter hospital stays are offsetting its disadvantages and increasing its adoption in healthcare settings.

The proliferation of the 5G communication technology for robot-assisted surgery in China’s laparoscopy devices market is creating value-grab opportunities. Due to the lack of evidence about its efficacy, stability, and safety, researchers are adopting swine models to investigate the effectiveness of 5G ultra-remote robot-assisted laparoscopic surgeries.

Space-saving Robotic Laparoscopy Devices Gain Prominence in Urology Surgeries

Minimally invasive surgeries are linked to improved patient outcomes and accelerating recovery times. However, operating through tiny incisions with the use of complicated equipment can be tricky for surgeons. Hence, France-based startup, MastOR, is increasing efforts to revolutionize laparoscopy assistance platforms with the help of robotic arms. As such, there is a growing demand for space-saving laparoscopy devices that can be integrated into existing equipment rather than being used as a standalone system.

Startups in the laparoscopy devices market are attracting funding from governments, healthcare associations, and investors to innovate in robotic technologies. Several million patients undergoing minimally invasive surgeries in thoracic, urology, and gynecological fields are catalyzing the demand for robotic laparoscopy devices. Since the learning curve and training period for conventional devices is long, healthcare startups in the laparoscopy devices market are increasing their R&D muscle in robotic laparoscopy devices.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Despite risks pertaining to COVID-19 transmission, laparoscopy device manufacturers and hospitals are making arrangements for women with gynecological emergencies. Apart from instruments, manufacturers in the laparoscopy devices market are innovating in sterile storage containers that are fully assembled and ready-to-go in operating rooms. Robotic devices are reducing the learning curve and training period associated with 2 dimensional laparoscopy devices. However, increased expense of robotic devices is affecting its rapid adoption in healthcare facilities. Hence, companies are increasing awareness about its advantages such as possibility of cosmetically appealing incisions, less postoperative pain, and shorter recovery time to increase the uptake of robotic devices.

Increase in Number of Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures Performed: Key Driver of Laparoscopy Devices Market

  • Minimally invasive surgery offers a higher accuracy rate compared to traditional open surgery. A significant benefit of minimally invasive surgery is the size of incision. Minimally invasive surgery relies on tiny incisions for the insertion of thin tubes, fiber-optic lights, cameras, and other small surgical tools.
  • Surgery with laparoscopy devices has been a highly preferred method of treatment in the past few years among healthcare providers across the world
  • A study conducted at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Maryland, the U.S., concluded that urban hospitals were performing laparoscopic appendectomies four times more than rural hospitals, and were likely performing 15 times more minimally invasive hysterectomies than rural hospitals
  • According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the rate of minimally invasive hysterectomy procedures conducted in the U.S. increased from an estimated 14% in 2004 to 53% in 2013
  • Initiation of robot-assisted surgery could be a key factor driving the number of laparoscopic surgeries performed for different surgeries such as prostatectomy, cancer, hernia repair, and colorectal cancer
  • According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an estimated 20 million surgical procedures were performed across the world in 2014, and 52% of these were minimally invasive surgeries
  • Increase in the number of laparoscopic surgeries performed every year is expected to drive the demand for and subsequent consumption of laparoscopy devices in the global market. This, in turn, is expected to propel the global laparoscopy devices market during the forecast period.
