Rising Prevalence Of Urological Diseases To Drive Growth Of The Plasma Resectoscope Market

The Global Plasma Resectoscope Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 303.5 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Plasma resectoscope is a surgical device used to perform transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). It comprises of insulated sheath containing a cutting loop or electrode, which generates plasma to resect prostate tissue utilizing electrosurgery. The device offers advantages such as improved precision, enhanced coagulation, and reduced procedure time compared to conventional resectoscopes. Growing prevalence of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer is expected to drive the demand for plasma resectoscope procedures. According to American Urological Association, nearly 50% of men in their sixties experience symptoms of BPH. This high prevalence of urological conditions is anticipated to propel the plasma resectoscope market growth over the forecast period.

Market key trends:
Technological advancements in plasma surgical devices is one of the key trends witnessed in the market. Manufacturers are focusing on developing next-generation plasma resectoscopes integrated with advanced features such as irrigation channels, video cameras, and lighting systems for enhanced visualization during surgeries. Growing preference for minimally invasive procedures is another trend favoring market expansion. Plasma resection using resectoscopes is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery for urological conditions. Favorable reimbursement scenario for plasma resectoscope procedures in developed regions also supports the market growth.
