Hysteroscope Sales Expected to Surge Sharply in Coming Years

Due to their minimal invasive nature, the popularity of hysteroscopes is rising rapidly across the world. Moreover, the minimally invasive procedures conducted with the help of hysteroscopes are increasingly being preferred by people over the traditionally performed procedures. This is because no incisions are made during the minimally invasive procedures, unlike the conventional ones. Hysteroscopes are inserted into the vaginal cavity through the cervix and are then slowly put into the uterus for effectively diagnosing and treating the disease.

Additionally, the reduced time period of hospitalization and the low blood loss associated with hysteroscopy are further boosting its popularity across the world. Furthermore, hysteroscopy causes significantly lesser post operational discomfort than the conventional surgeries. This means that after hysteroscopy, patients can go back to their normal routines and resume their daily activities in a shorter period of time than after traditional surgeries. The other important factor positively impacting the sales of hysteroscopes is the surging female geriatric population.

This is primarily because of the fact that the geriatric women are highly vulnerable to several gynecology-related diseases and ailments such as abnormal bleeding from uterus and the formation of fibroids and polyps. Additionally, aging results in hormonal imbalance in women, which subsequently leads to irregular menses. This is further pushing up the requirement for hysteroscopy, which is, in turn, causing a sharp surge in the sales of hysteroscopes across the globe.

Besides the aforementioned factors, the rising number of infertility cases among women is also propelling the demand for hysteroscopes all over the world. This is because hysteroscopes are heavily used for diagnosing the problem of infertility in women, on account of their ability to accurately identify the actual causes. This is achieved by conducting a thorough examination of the uterine cavity. Hysteroscopes help medical practitioners identify the existence of polyps, intrauterine lesion, adhesions, carcinoma, or myomas.

The early and accurate diagnosis of such ailments help gynecologists and doctors treat people effectively and increase their chances of pregnancy. Because of these reasons, the demand for hysteroscopes is rising rapidly throughout the globe. This is, in turn, propelling the progress of the global hysteroscope market. Hysteroscopic myomectomy, hysteroscopic polypectomy, and hysteroscopic endometrial ablation are the major application areas of hysteroscopes. Amongst these, the usage of hysteroscopes was observed to be the highest in hysteroscopic myomectomy in the past.

Globally, the sales of hysteroscopes were the highest in North America in the years gone by, as per the observations of P&S Intelligence, a market research company based in India. This was because of the presence of a large population of geriatric women, the high incidence of various uterine related diseases including the occurrence of unexplained miscarriages, and the high prevalence of structural abnormalities of uterus, sub mucosal myomas, and polyps and irregular bleeding in the region.

Hence, it can be said with full surety that the demand for hysteroscopes will shoot-up across the world in the coming years, mainly because of the rising incidence of uterine-related diseases and infertility among women and the soaring population of geriatric women in various countries.
