The global uterine manipulators market is anticipated to grow at approximately 5.9% CAGR over the forecast period. Increase in focus on women health and hygiene, rise in prevalence of gynecological disorders coupled with advantages offered by uterine manipulators are key factors driving the global uterine manipulators market.
The ability to completely visualize the uterus and adnexa is critical for effective gynecological laparoscopic surgery. Uterine manipulators are surgical instruments that enable full visualization of the uterus and help keep the cervix in position during laparoscopic gynecological surgeries including hysterectomy. The operator can flex and rotate the uterus using a uterine manipulator that can be calibrated at various angles, allowing it to be brought into an ideal position. The uterine manipulators provide different movement ranges including anteversion, retroversion, lateral movement, elevation, and any special movement. Furthermore, using uterine manipulators helps to expand the gap between the ureter and the cervix, allowing the surgeon to conduct a healthy cervix dissection. Increase in gynecological problems in women have led to rise in number of laparoscopic hysterectomies performed across the globe. Thus, in turn, drives the demand for uterine manipulators during the forecast period.
However, lack of skilled professionals in developing countries along with complications associated with uterine manipulators is expected to impede the growth of uterine manipulators market in the next few years.

In pelvic surgery, adequate exposure is important, and uterine manipulators help tremendously. Uterine manipulation is an essential aspect of gaining exposure during laparoscopic procedures. The ideal uterine manipulator whether disposable or reusable should be economical, easy and simple to use, sterile, and have the capacity to inject solutions into the uterine cavity. Most notably, it should have the best range of motion of the uterus without the need for an assistant. The method of surgery, the size of the specimen, the BMI, and the complexity of the operation should all be considered when choosing uterine manipulators. To conduct effective, accurate, and reliable surgeries, it is critical to have a thorough understanding of the different forms of uterine manipulator devices, their features, and how they can be used. Increase in focus on women health, rising gynecological problems have led to increase in number of hysterectomies performed across the globe. Thus, there is huge demand for uterine manipulators during these surgeries. Furthermore, increased focus on R&D for the development of novel products by key industry players will have a positive impact on industry growth.
The global uterine manipulators market has been segmented based on product type, end-users, and region. Based on product, the global uterine manipulators market is categorized into balloon Hohl type uterine manipulators, Donnez type uterine manipulators, Clermont-Ferrand uterine manipulators, Tintara type uterine manipulators, Advincula Arch type uterine manipulators, and others.
On the basis of end-users, the global uterine manipulators market is categorized into hospitals, specialty clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers. Hospitals accounted for majority of the market share in 2020 owing to large number of laparoscopic hysterectomies performed in these facilities. Because of their ease of use, longevity, and reusability, uterine manipulators have gained widespread popularity among physicians and surgeons.
The global uterine manipulators market is cumulative to North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the global uterine manipulators market in 2020, however Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid pace through 2028.
U.S. grabbed majority of the market share in the region. Hysterectomy is the second most common major surgical operation for women of reproductive age in the country, after caesarean section. In the U.S., almost 600,000 hysterectomies are performed each year, according to Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Furthermore, strong foothold of key industry players providing wide range of uterine manipulators are other major factors likely to boost the growth of the market in North America.
However, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid pace over the next few years. There is a strong growth potential in the emerging economies such as India, and China.
