Global Colposcopes Market By Type Of Products (Optical Colposcope, Electronic Colposcope ), By Applications ( Physical Examination, Cervical Cancer Diagnostics ) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis 2017 - 2025

This report on the global colposcope market studies various products and applications of the colposcope market. The major application of colposcopy is to prevent cervical cancer by detecting precancerous tissues. Cervical cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in women worldwide, and the higher prevalence of cervical cancer is driving the market growth of colposcopies worldwide.

With the introduction of computerized colposcopes, digital images can be transmitted in three dimensions for instant viewing, and the demand for colposcopes has increased in recent years due to the clear imaging of abnormal areas. A number of modern technologies, such as LuViva, DySIS, and ZedScan, have been used in practice in recent years, increasing colposcopy's sensitivity and specificity, resulting in a positive predictive value.

For the purpose of this study, the various product types included in the study are optical colposcopy and electronic colposcopy. Applications comprise physical examination and cervical cancer diagnostics. Market size estimates and forecasts for these segments for the period 2015–2025 are provided in terms of US$ Mn, along with the respective CAGRs for the period 2017–2025, considering 2016 as the base year.

The global colposcopy market is segmented geographically into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa markets. The regions are also further sub-segmented on the basis of major countries. Market size estimates and forecasts for these segments are provided in US$ Mn, along with the respective CAGRs for the period 2017-2025, using 2016 as the base year.

Based on product types, the global colposcope market is categorized into:

  • Optical colposcope
  • Electronic colposcope

Factors such as painless and non-invasive procedures with no blood loss and lower healthcare costs promote the demand for colposcopies for the diagnosis of cervical cancer and other cervical complications. Optical colposcopes hold the largest market due to their high accuracy and image quality, and comparatively, they are less expensive than electronic colposcopes. Electronic colposcopes are anticipated to register faster growth due to better mobility, a high-definition imaging module, and an advanced telemedicine solution.

The high-resolution images can be archived for future reference and study purposes. Overall, the global colposcopes market is highly competitive, with multiple players like Olympus Corporation, Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Leisegang, and Koninklijke Philips N.V. specializing in their respective fields. Consolidation activities are being increasingly witnessed on the competitive front with a view to increasing the technological advancement in the colposcope device and related software for high-resolution imaging and interpretation, portability, histopathological studies, and low cost.

Based on application types, the global colposcope market is categorized into:

  • Physical examination
  • Cervical cancer diagnostics

The cervix, vulva, and vagina are examined physically to investigate cytology, localized lesions, forensic examination as part of a sexual assault investigation, HPV infection, and other issues. A cervical cancer diagnosis is performed using a colposcopy to detect abnormalities such as high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN 2 and CIN 3) that are associated with underlying invasive squamous cell cervical cancer. When compared to traditional Pap smear and liquid-based Pap smear tests, colposcopy has a higher sensitivity in the diagnosis of any cervical lesion.

In comparison to both applications, cervical cancer diagnostics hold the largest share of the colposcopy market, as it is the only diagnostic technique used for the detection of cervical cancer, as there is no other alternative technique. The physical examination segment will grow faster during the forecast period due to its high diversity of applications.

For the purpose of this study, the global colposcopes market is categorized into three segments:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

In 2016, North America was identified as the largest market for colposcopies. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2017, there will be about 12,820 new cases of cervical cancer diagnosed, and approximately 4,210 women will die due to cervical cancer. The expansion is primarily attributed to increased public awareness and early disease detection, an evolved reimbursement scenario, and technological advancements in colposcope manufacturing and software. Cancer Research UK states that cervical cancer incidence will rise by 43 percent by 2035, with a prevalence of 17 cases per 100,000 females.

Europe is expected to be the second-largest market due to the high prevalence of cervical cancer, high awareness related to early diagnosis, government and non-government organizations arranging awareness activities and camps, and supportive reimbursement policies. The growth of the Asia Pacific colposcopes market is attributed to factors like the rising prevalence of cervical cancer, flourishing medical tourism, and higher disposable income in these regions. However, factors such as developing health infrastructure, increasing awareness, and the high prevalence of cervical cancer are going to fuel the rapid growth of the colposcopy market in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa in the near future.
