- The global market for MIS devices and instruments was worth $14.8 billion in 2008. This should reach $15.8 billion in 2009 and $23.0 billion in 2014, for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.8%.
- The U.S. has the largest share of the market, worth $8.9 billion in 2008 and an estimated $9.5 billion in 2009. This segment is expected to reach $13.6 billion in 2014.
- Cardiothoracic surgery was the largest application segment for MIS devices and equipment in 2007, representing 70% of the total market. Cardiothoracic surgery was followed in order of size by orthopedic surgery (12%), gastrointestinal surgery (10%) and gynecology (3%).
The global market for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) devices and instruments was worth an estimated $12 billion in 2005, and is expected to reach $12.9 billion in 2006 and $18.5 billion by 2011, an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 7.5% between 2006 and 2011. (These figures include catheters, balloons, stents and other devices used in minimally invasive angioplasty.)
The U.S. accounted for about 60% of the world market, or $7.2 billion in 2005, and is growing at an AAGR of 7.2%. The U.S. market should reach $7.7 billion in 2006 and $11.0 billion by 2011.
Surgical devices (e.g, stents, catheters, guidewires) are the largest product segment of the U.S. minimally invasive surgery market, of which they accounted for about a 69% share in 2005. Monitoring and visualization systems were the second largest segment of the U.S. market in 2005, with an 11% market share, followed by endosurgical instruments (10%), electrosurgical equipment (8%), and robotics (2%). Surgical robots are the fastest-growing equipment /device segment, with an AAGR of 12% between 2006 and 2011, followed by surgical devices, with an AAGR of 8%.
Globally, the MIS devices market saw an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 10% from 1999 to 2002.
By 2007, the market should rise to approximately $8.3 billion at an AAGR of 6.6%.
The U.S. market represents nearly 60% of the total world market.
Market drivers include demographics, epidemiology, new devices.
The lack of surgeons opting to train in MIS is a potential constraint on the market.
