Laparoscopy, or keyhole surgery, is a minimally invasive surgery in which surgeons can operate inside the pelvis and abdomen without needing larger incisions in the skin. The laparoscopic devices market includes energy devices and endomechanical instruments used during laparoscopic surgeries. Energy devices emit ultrasonic waves, high frequencies, and microwaves to assist surgeons in cutting tissue and organs for the operation, whereas endomechanical instruments are generally used in joining, removing, or attaching organs or parts of the abdomen.

The increasing preference for laparoscopic procedures by surgeons and patients is one of the major factors responsible for the market growth. Moreover, factors such as the rising burden of various medical conditions requiring surgical procedures and the increasing number of laparoscopic surgeries are driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the emergence of new technologies by the market players with the potential to eliminate current challenges during laparoscopic procedures is expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast timeframe.

The market experienced a decline in revenue due to the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. This was due to the decline in the demand for laparoscopy instruments. However, in 2021 and 2022, the market experienced significant growth due to the increase in surgical procedures being conducted globally. The market is projected to witness significant growth trends over the forecast period of 2024-2032.

Laparoscopy Instruments Market Trends

Shift to Laparoscopic Surgery from Open Surgery for Colorectal Conditions to Propel the Market Growth

The laparoscopic colectomy procedure was first introduced in 1991. However, this procedure could not gain significant utilization rates among healthcare facilities compared to other laparoscopic procedures such as cholecystectomy and appendectomy.

However, after the use of the Hand-assisted Laparoscopic Surgery (HALS) approach by surgeons, technical difficulties and challenges associated with laparoscopic colectomy were minimized. This led to an increase in the use of laparoscopic approach for colorectal conditions, including colectomy.

  • For instance, as per the data published by the Korean Cancer Association in 2020, colon cancer surgeries through laparoscopic resection increased to 78.5% in 2018 from 64.9% in 2013. Similarly, as per the same source, for rectal cancer, the penetration of laparoscopic resection increased from 65.4% to 81.6%.

Such rising inclination of patients and surgeons toward laparoscopic approach for colorectal conditions is expected to positively influence the market growth in developed markets.

Laparoscopy Instruments Market Growth Factors

Increasing Usage of Laparoscopic Procedures to Increase the Demand for Instruments

Laparoscopes are inserted through small incisions in the body by surgeons and are used to diagnose and treat certain medical conditions. The increasing preference for minimally invasive surgeries has been fueling the demand for laparoscopic procedures. Moreover, various advantages associated with the use of laparoscopes, such as smaller scars, fast healing, lesser recovery times, minimal hospital stays, and limited exposure of internal organs, among others, have also been fueling the demand for laparoscopy procedures.

Furthermore, the increasing focus of developing and under-developed countries toward improvement in healthcare infrastructure is anticipated to further increase the demand for capital equipment such as electrosurgical generators and advanced vessel sealing instruments. Moreover, an increasing number of laparoscopic surgical procedures across the world is expected to fuel the demand for these instruments during the forecast period.

  • According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in France, out of total surgical procedures for the repair of inguinal hernia, the share of laparoscopy procedures increased from 29.1% in 2010 to 42.2% in 2020. Such a significant increase in the proportion of laparoscopic surgical procedures has increased the demand for laparoscopic instruments, thereby propelling the overall market growth.

Such increasing preference for the laparoscopic approach coupled with the rising number of laparoscopy procedures is expected to positively impact the market growth in the coming years.

Growing Burden of Diseases such as Appendicitis and Gallstones to Contribute to Market Growth

Laparoscopic surgeries are helpful in diagnosing and treating, such as gallstones, appendicitis, and hernia, among others. The rising prevalence of gallstones coupled with an increasing number of patients with acute appendicitis is anticipated to increase the demand for laparoscopy instruments during the forecast timeframe.

  • For instance, according to the data from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), gallstones affect 10 to 15% of the U.S. population. Such a high prevalence of gallstones in the U.S. is expected to increase the number of surgical procedures, including laparoscopic procedures.

Several diseases, such as gallstones and appendicitis, can be severe if left untreated. Hence, a large group of patients suffering from these diseases prefers surgical approaches, which are termed cholecystectomy and appendectomy, respectively. An increase in the number of laparoscopy procedures over the past decade has significantly contributed to market growth.

  • According to the data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the total number of laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedures in EU-5 (Germany, U.K., Italy, France, and Spain) increased from 484,724 in 2010 to 537,402 in 2019.

Such an increase in the number of procedures coupled with a growing burden of various diseases is expected to drive market growth in the coming years.


Complications Associated with Laparoscopic Procedures and High Preference to Open Surgery in Developing Countries to Limit the Market

Several complications and limitations of laparoscopic surgical procedures are raising concerns amongst healthcare professionals and patients, which is hampering the adoption of these instruments across the world.

The energy sources used in laparoscopic surgeries cause lateral thermal spread and generation of smoke or vapor plumes. Surgical smoke increases the risk of acute and chronic pulmonary conditions, irritation, and soreness of the nose, throat, and eyes, and causes acute headaches. Moreover, the instruments used in laparoscopic surgeries have several complications associated with them. For instance, various complications of trocars include intra-abdominal vascular and visceral injury, herniation, trocar site bleeding, and infection. Such problems associated with laparoscopic surgical procedures are expected to limit the adoption of these instruments, thereby hindering the overall market growth.

Along with this, the high preference to open surgery by the patient population across low and middle-income countries due to its cost-effectiveness compared to laparoscopic surgery is limiting the number of laparoscopic procedures. Despite the drawbacks associated with open surgery, such as larger scars, more pain, and longer stays at the hospitals, a large group of patients prefers the open surgical approach in these countries.
