Gynecological devices are instruments designed for the management of the female’s reproductive system, childbirth, and pregnancy. Gynecology devices are used to perform various medical procedures for the well-being of females.
The main types of gynecological devices are surgical devices, diagnostic imaging systems, hand-held instruments, software, and other devices. Surgical devices refer to the medical devices that are used for various surgical procedures that help in the identification, treatment, and cure of a wide range of medical conditions in gynecology such as colposcopy, loop electrical excision, IUD insertion, dilation and curettage (D&C), ovarian cystectomy, tubal ligation, and others. Major applications are laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, dilation and curettage, colposcopy, and others that are used in clinics, hospitals, diagnostic centers, research institutes, and others.
The global gynecological devices market is segmented -
1) By Device: Surgical Devices, Diagnostic Imaging Systems, Hand Held Instruments, Software, Other Devices
2) By Application: Laparoscopy, Hysteroscopy, Dilation and Curettage, Colposcopy, Other Applications

The global gynecological devices market size is expected to grow from $11.45 billion in 2022 to $12.44 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The global gynecological devices market size is expected to reach $17.04 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 8.2%.
The increasing prevalence of gynecological disorders is expected to propel the growth of the gynecology devices market going forward. A gynecological disorder is a condition that interferes with the normal function of female reproductive organs such as the breasts and abdominal and pelvic organs. Gynecology devices are used to control the female reproductive system, including pregnancy and childbirth and they are used to perform various medical producers such as colposcopy, loop electrical excision procedure (LEEP), endometrial biopsy, IUD insertion, dilation and curettage (D&C), tubal ligation, ovarian cystectomy, and others. For instance, in March 2023, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) report, a Switzerland-based intergovernmental organization, endometriosis affects around 190 million women and girls of reproductive age worldwide. Additionally, cervical cancer was the fourth most frequent cancer in women worldwide, with 604,000 new cases and 342,000 expected deaths in 2020, accounting for over 90% of new cases and deaths worldwide in low- and middle-income nations. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of gynecological disorders is driving the growth of the gynecological devices market.
