Shifting Paradigm in Healthcare Industry, Opening Gateways for Advanced Technologies in Minimally Invasive Surgical Devices Market

February 25, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., February 25, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report on minimally invasive surgery (MIS) devices and equipment, the growing number of surgical procedures has created a multibillion-dollar market for specialized devices and instruments used for these practices. They include monitors and imaging equipment, electrosurgical devices, handheld instruments, auxiliary devices, and accessories.

The global market for MIS devices and instruments was worth an estimated $14.5 billion in 2013 and $15.4 billion in 2014. This is forecasted to reach $21.5 billion by 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8% between 2014 and 2019.

The U.S. accounted for about 67% of the world market, or $9.6 billion in 2013 and exceeded $10.2 billion in 2014 at a CAGR of 6.4%. By 2019, this is anticipated to approach $14 billion.  Surgical devices (stents, catheters and guide wires) are the largest product segment of the U.S. minimally invasive surgery market. Surgical robots are the fastest-growing equipment/device segment with a CAGR of 14.2% between 2014 and 2019, followed by surgical devices, with a CAGR of 6.7%.

The population served by established markets is aging, bringing new surgical needs, while new markets are opening up.  The Affordable Care Act of 2010 has increased the number of people with health insurance that can be used to pay for minimally invasive procedures. Orthopedic surgery is the fastest-growing application segment, with a projected CAGR of 8% between 2014 and 2019, followed by vascular surgery (7.1%) and cardiothoracic surgery (7%). 

“The structure of the healthcare industry is changing, as traditional hospitals consolidate and other healthcare options become available to consumers,” says BCC Research analyst Andrew McWilliams. “Technological advances have expanded the range of surgical procedures that can be performed using minimally invasive techniques, while giving physicians new tools for the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and pathologies.”
