What are Mechanical Uterine Tissue Removal Devices?
Mechanical uterine tissue removal devices remove uterine growths or uterine tissue while preventing consequent issues such as infertility. iData typically refers to the mechanical uterine tissue removal device market as the fully integrated system for the mechanical removal of uterine tissue, often including a handpiece, a control unit, and a footswitch. Typically, these devices are integrated with a hysteroscope and/or a fluid management system. However, the revenue generated from hysteroscopes and fluid management systems is not mentioned within this specific segment of the global gynecological device market report, and instead both are present within other chapters.
A GROWING MARKET: WHAT ARE THE DRIVERS?
In total, the global market for mechanical uterine tissue removal devices is increasing. All in all, there are three factors at play that are encouraging a 21.6% increase in the market value by 2027. Among the three, one factor is working the hardest and single-handedly driving the majority of the market’s growth. The major market driver surrounds the newly understood safety of the mechanical uterine tissue removal devices in comparison to alternative methods. In 2014, the FDA issued an updated health warning regarding laparoscopic uterine power morcellation in hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures. Following this, procedures utilizing hysteroscopes were seen to have significant advantages in terms of patient safety. Since then, mechanical uterine tissue removal devices, which utilize hysteroscopes, have increased in popularity as the patient’s harm is reduced and women are still able to have children after the treatment.
ELIGIBILITY AND QUALIFICATION: ARE THESE LIMITING THIS MARKET?
Due to the complex nature of the mechanical uterine tissue removal procedure, highly skilled professionals are required. As expected, this acts as a limiter on the market as it is difficult to find medical professionals and gynecologists capable of performing these procedures. Up to this point, there have been individuals and gynecologists capable of performing the procedure, however, popularity surrounding the procedure is increasing and therefore demand for trained professionals is consequently increasing. Additionally, the vast majority of trained professionals and gynecologists capable of performing this procedure are in the latter stages of their career. Because of this, younger professionals are taking over the market, and many of which are unable to perform the procedure. Despite this, many of the younger professionals will be able to learn and gain expertise in this field and further fulfill the future demand. On the other hand, a subsequent market limiter surrounds the eligibility of the patient to undergo a mechanical uterine tissue removal procedure. For instance, the MyoSure™ procedure requires patients to have no cervical malignancies or history of uterine cancer, making it challenging for those who do not meet the requirements to undergo this procedure.
LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE
Over the forecast period and into 2027, growth within this market will occur. This growth will appear extremely fast and will be due to the increase in the knowledge of the safety surrounding the procedure. The safety of these procedures relative to alternatives, such as gynecological resection, will stimulate the unit sales growth, which will further contribute to the increasing value of the market. Overall, the global mechanical uterine tissue removal device market will continue to grow over the forecast period.
