Laparoscopy, also known as diagnostic laparoscopy, and is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It is a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure. Laparoscopy uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs. A laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front. The instrument is inserted through an incision in the abdominal wall. As it moves along, the camera sends images to a video monitor. These devices are mainly preferred for surgeries related to the pancreas, liver, colon and bile duct. With increase in number of patients suffering from abdominal disorders the global laparoscopic market is expected to grow at a significant pace over the forecast period.
In 2014, the size of global laparoscopic devices market was valued at USD X.9 billion. While in 2015, size of laparoscopic devices market was valued over USD 7 billion. The global laparoscopic devices market is projected to grow with a CAGR between 8.5% – 8.9% during 2016-2022 and reach USD 12.X billion by 2022. The growth of laparoscopic devices market is primarily driven by health issues caused by obesity, as rise in obese population has resulted into laparoscopic surgeries. Moreover, factors such as growing patient and physician preference for laparoscopic procedures as compared to open surgeries, growing geriatric population, rise in prevalence of colorectal cancer which can be treated laparoscopically, and technological advancements are majorly driving the growth of this market. On the other hand, side effects associated with the surgeries and rapid technological changes could be the restraining factors in the growth of laparoscopic devices market. Going forward, advanced technologies that are likely to make surgeries easier to perform is likely to bring opportunity for growth to this market for major player.
