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. 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. By an overwhelming margin, the dominant segment in the total hysteroscope market is rigid hysteroscopes. The increase in unit sales is being driven by an increased focus and investment on women’s health and the potential for superior optics is creating a small resurgence in physicians seeking hysteroscopy training.

Rigid hysteroscopes are available in a wide range of diameters, to accommodate simple office procedures to complex operations. Both rigid and flexible hysteroscopes can have operating channels to allow for the insertion of surgical instruments. Due to the range in hysteroscope types and configurations, prices can be significantly different depending on the set-up. In this report, the ASP represents the median price of the most common hysteroscopes purchased.

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 reporting period is expected to be stable to modest growth.
While alternative flexible fiberscopes are growing at a similar rate as hysteroscopes, video endoscopes are the fastest growing segment in endoscopy.
