A heightened awareness of and preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures will create a favorable environment for the increased uptake of gynecological devices. The use of minimally invasive surgical procedures as an alternative to hysterectomy, especially will lead to an increase in spends on advanced gynecological devices. The report also identifies the increase in the baby boomer population as a key growth driver for the global gynecological devices market. Even so, the market will be restrained because of factors such as small manufacturers facing hindrances in procuring capital for their projects. Regions such as North America, face their unique set of restraints, such as the long device approval times taken in countries such as the United States.


TMR analysts, in an endeavor to provide a detailed analysis of the global gynecological devices market, have segmented the market on the basis of the following criteria: product type and geography. By product type, the market has been segmented into: Surgical devices, hand instruments, and diagnostic imaging systems (ultrasound). Each of these segments has been further sub-segmented for a meticulous study of the report.


The surgical devices segment has been sub-segmented into gynecological endoscopes, endometrial ablation devices, gynecologic fluid management systems, and female sterilization and contraceptive devices.


In the recent past, the demand for endometrial ablation procedures has shown an uptick because of a rise in menorrhagia cases. The second-generation endometrial ablation devices now available in the market are not only less invasive, but have also reduced the overall time taken to complete such procedures. The findings of the study show that female sterilization and contraception devices constitute the other prime sub-segment in the global market for gynecological surgical devices. The changing role of women in society and the increasing demand for female contraception techniques has fuelled much technological innovation in this space. With these measures yielding positive results in the form of better success rates and improved patient comfort, female sterilization and contraception devices have seen progressively higher sales and revenue. The hand instruments segment, on the other hand, will reap benefits from the introduction of disposable biopsy forceps and vaginal specula.


From the geographical perspective, the gynecological devices market is segmented into: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World.
