Laparoscopic Devices Market Insights

The total market will continue to benefit from stable growth in laparoscopic procedures performed. However, the continuing adoption of robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgeries is expected to partially offset growth across the market, primarily affecting high-volume general and laparoscopic procedures, including but not limited to, cholecystectomy, hernia repair, colorectal procedures and urological and gynecological applications, primarily prostatectomy and hysterectomy.

US Laparoscopy Devices Market Size by Segment, 2016 - 2026

The development of imaging technology is one of the key drivers in the laparoscope market. Stryker offers the SPY Fluorescent technology combined with laparoscopes to provide improved customization and visualization. Olympus, a leading competitor in the video laparoscope market, offers the ENDOEYE® FLEX laparoscope with 3D-imaging capability combined with articulation.

The closure device market, the largest segment of the total laparoscopy device market, is expected to grow at a strong single-digit growth rate over the forecast period. Laparoscopic staplers and automated suturing devices are expected to drive growth in the market. This segment is expected to be limited by increasing robotic-assisted procedures.

Laparoscopic Devices Market Share Insight

US Laparoscopic Device Market LeadersMedtronic and Ethicon led the U.S. laparoscopy device market by 2020, capturing the strong majority of the total market share. Both of these laparoscopy device companies have diverse product portfolios and dominant shares of the largest portions of the total market, including the closure device, direct energy and ultrasonic markets.

Olympus, Applied Medical, Stryker and Karl Storz each held modest shares of the total laparoscopy devices market. Olympus had a strong presence in the laparoscope segment, also competing in the suction-irrigation, insufflation, direct energy and ultrasonic segments, as well as the powered morcellator market. Applied Medical dominated the access device and hand-assisted laparoscopic sleeve markets, also holding notable shares of the hand instrument, insufflation and closure device markets.

Stryker dominated the suction-irrigation market, held a leading share in the insufflation device market and was the leading competitor in the laparoscope market, while also competing in the hand instrument segment. Karl Storz led the hand instrument market and was the third-leading competitor in the laparoscope market.
