As with many other markets for medical devices, therapy systems for benign uterine conditions have been negatively impacted by the economic recession and resultant loss of employment/income and subsequent postponement of elective procedures among potential patients. Despite a sluggish economy, however, growth in this segment is expected to accelerate at a low to moderate pace throughout the forecast period, as the market benefits from continued favorable clinical outcomes and the adoption of next-generation therapy systems or instruments that facilitate minimally invasive options and/or safer, more effective, cost-effective treatment of benign uterine conditions. Despite the implementation of the medical device excise tax and reimbursement/pricing challenges, healthcare reform and an increase in the covered female patient population is expected to trend to less invasive/costly options such as hysteroscopic resection and GEA procedures. This market may experience a significant increase in procedures near the end of the forecast period covered by this report (should the economy rebound) due to pent-up demand for elective procedures such as the aforementioned treatments.
This dynamic report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, markets, competitors, emerging technology and opportunities. Covered products include leading benign uterine therapy devices or systems, specifically global endometrial ablation devices, uterine artery embolization systems, hysteroscopes and related products (including new single-insertion hysteroscopic morcellators), and magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound systems for treating fibroids.
