Hysteroscopy is a low-risk procedure that uses the endocervical canal to view and operate in the uterine cavity from a transcervical approach; either for diagnostic or treatment purposes.

Hysteroscopy is performed using a hysteroscope. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be used for the diagnosis and treatment of intrauterine and endocervical problems; including endometrial ablation and myomectomy procedures.

The market for hysteroscopes includes both the rigid and flexible hysteroscope segments. Globally, trends for both the rigid and flexible segments of the hysteroscope market include movement towards devices with more advanced optic technology and better image quality. In China, this trend is occurring as a more gradual change.

China is a price sensitive market with a strong preference towards low and mid-end devices. The quality of devices is improving in China; however, it is not expected to catch up to the global average within the forecast period. Growth within the hysteroscope market is limited as the patient population will not significantly change. Although, as the population ages, the number of diagnostic and operative procedures for uterine conditions should increase slightly, resulting in a higher demand for these devices. Due to the mature, stable nature of the hysteroscope market, the projection for the remainder of the forecast period is expected to be stable to modest growth.

Video endoscopes are the fastest growing segment in endoscopy. The increasing prices in the endoscope segment are misleading. The increase in ASP is due to the fact that clients are purchasing more advanced scopes at a higher price point, while the actual price per scope is decreasing.
