Women’s Health - US Analysis and Market Forecasts


The Women’s Health medical devices market encompasses treatments for conditions that are particular to the adult female anatomy. This includes abnormal uterine conditions, such as menorrhagia and uterine fibroids, as well as pelvic disorders such as female stress urinary incontinence. Moreover, there is a sub-segment of the female population that no longer desire to become pregnant, and seek permanent solutions to avoid conception.

In recent years, minimally invasive techniques and technologies have been developed to treat these conditions as alternatives to conventional surgery; these technologies are expected to see increased adoption in the coming years due to increased physician and patient awareness as well as an increasing number of women who are proactively seeking treatment for these embarrassing, and sometimes debilitating, conditions. However, recent lawsuits related to safety issues with some of these devices that are receiving widespread media attention, particularly in the urinary incontinence sling market, have caused some women to be skeptical of these newer technologies.

The technologies covered in this report include global endometrial devices, endometrial resection devices, uterine fibroid embolization agents, female sterilization devices, and female urinary incontinence slings. The report provides insights into the competitive landscape, the marketed and pipeline products, the current and emerging players and market analysis of the different device segments within the women’s health market in the US. The report also provides insight into the unmet needs and an understanding of physician perceptions of the market. This report is built using data and information sourced from secondary sources and primary research interviews with leading gynecologists, urogynecologists, interventional radiologists, and general surgeons, with in-house analysis conducted by GlobalData’s team of industry experts.
