The Indian laparoscopy devices market was valued at $621.4 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $729.2 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.9%.
Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), band-aid surgery, or keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique. Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine organs inside the abdomen or pelvic cavities by inserting a laparoscope through a small incision in the abdomen. A laparoscope comprises a long, thin tube with high intensity light along with high resolution camera in front. The camera transmits images to monitor as it travels through the abdomen. Laparoscopy is used for diagnosis as well as treatment of endometriosis, ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), cysts, and fibroids. Laparoscopy devices are routinely used in diagnosis as well as in therapeutic procedures of various diseases such as prostatectomy, pancreatic cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders. Use of these devices in surgical procedures ensure minimal bleeding and assist in maintaining hemostasis. These devices are preferred by surgeons as well as physicians, owing to high level of precision offered by such devices in surgeries. There are a number of advantages to the patient with laparoscopic surgery versus the more common, open procedure. These include reduced pain due to smaller incisions, reduced hemorrhaging, and shorter recovery time.
The key factors that drive the Indian laparoscopy devices market include rise in number of obese populations, growth in number of minimally invasive procedures along with surge in disposable income, growth in laparoscopic-based bariatric surgeries for weight reduction, and increase in technological advancements pertaining to these devices. However, lack of expertise in laparoscopic surgeries and high costs associated with these devices and procedures are anticipated to restrain the market growth. Moreover, the growing investments and funding in the healthcare sector will certainly create many lucrative opportunities for various regional key players in this Indian laparoscopy devices market.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in nationwide lockdowns; thereby, impacting every industry vertical. Likewise, the laparoscopy device market is also affected by the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected laparoscopy device as manufacturers of laparoscopy devices have shut down their operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in a drop in laparoscopy device output. Some of the laparoscopic and surgical services have been postponed during the coronavirus pandemic. So, patients undergoing treatment lost access to services and no surgeries had happened due to lockdown in India. The services will be made available for patients who are suffering from life threatening conditions. The rules and regulations have been tightened by the government regarding working of medical staff and activities, including several sub-domains of healthcare.
