General and pelvic endoscopic surgical procedures employ a broad array of endoscopic surgical products, including access needles, trocars, hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery devices, endoscopes, hand instruments, insufflation systems and robotic-surgery systems. The U.S. market for products used in general and pelvic endoscopic surgery totaled more than $3.3 billion in 2008. Over the next five years, this burgeoning market is expected to grow at a healthy 9.0% compound annual rate, approaching $5.2 billion in 2013. Despite the current economic recession, strong pricing pressure and competition, this market is expected to exhibit healthier-than-average growth due to demographics, ongoing demand for less invasive, less-costly surgery, increased surgeon training, and adaption of next-generation endoscopic technologies, including robotic surgical systems and next-generation endoscopic instrumentation. In addition, emerging "scarless" techniques-including reducing the surgical access to a single incision or via natural orifices such as the umbilicus-have resulted in the development of several novel surgical instruments and systems that may significantly impact the field of laparoscopy.
This dynamic report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, markets, competitors, and emerging technology and opportunities in the U.S. general and pelvic endoscopic surgery products market. Product areas include: access needles, trocars, hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery devices, single-port access or single-incision laparoscopy systems, incisionless access systems, insufflation systems, endoscopes, hand instruments, endoscopic access site closure products, robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery systems, and surgical navigation systems.
