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 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 most leading cause of cancer deaths in women worldwide, higher prevalence of cervical cancer driving the market growth of colposcopes worldwide. With the advent of computerized colposcopes, digital image can be transmitted in three dimensional image for instant view and due to the clear imaging of abnormal areas colposcopes demand increased in recent years. In recent years a number of modern technologies such as LuViva, DySIS and ZedScan used in practice, due to this colposcopy sensitivity and specificity increased also it results in positive predictive value.

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

The geographic segmentation of the global colposcopes market is performed for the regions North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa markets. The regions are also further sub-segmented on the basis of major countries. Market size estimates and forecast for these segments for the period 2015 to 2025 are provided in terms of US$ Mn along with the respective CAGRs for the period 2017 to 2025, considering 2016 as the base year.

Colposcopes Market

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

  • Physical examination
  • Cervical cancer diagnostics

Colposcopes Market

Physical examination of cervix, vulva and vagina is performed to investigate cytology, localized lesions, in forensic examination as a part of sexual assault investigation, HPV infection, etc. Cervical cancer diagnosis is performed using colposcope 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. Colposcopy method has a higher sensitivity in diagnosis of any cervical lesion compared to the conventional Pap smear and liquid-based Pap smear tests. In comparison to both the applications the cervical cancer diagnostics hold the largest share of the colposcopy market, as it is the only diagnostic technique used for detection of cervical cancer as there is no other alternative technique. Physical examination segment will grow faster during the forecast period due to its high diversity in application.

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

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

Colposcopes Market

North America was observed as the largest market for colposcopes in the base year 2016. According to American Cancer Society in 2017 there will be about 12,820 new cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed and approximately 4,210 women will die due to cervical cancer.  The growth is attributed mainly due to high public awareness and early disease diagnosis, evolved reimbursement scenario and technological advancement in the colposcope manufacture and software. Cancer Research UK states that, cervical cancer incidence will rise by 43% by 2035 with prevalence of 17 cases per 100,000 females. Europe is expected to be the second largest market due to high prevalence of cervical cancer, high awareness related to early diagnosis, and government & non-government organizations arranging awareness activities and camps, and supportive reimbursement policies. Growth of Asia Pacific for colposcopes market is attributed by factors like 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 high prevalence of cervical cancer are going to fuel the rapid growth of colposcopes market in Latin America and Middle East and Africa region in the near future.
