Womens Health - US Analysis and Market Forecasts


The Womens Health medical devices market encompasses treatments for conditions that are particular to the adult female anatomy. This includes abnormal uterine conditions, such as menorrhagia and uterine fibroids, as well as pelvic disorders such as female stress urinary incontinence. Moreover, there is a sub-segment of the female population that no longer desire to become pregnant, and seek permanent solutions to avoid conception.

In recent years, minimally invasive techniques and technologies have been developed to treat these conditions as alternatives to conventional surgery; these technologies are expected to see increased adoption in the coming years due to increased physician and patient awareness as well as an increasing number of women who are proactively seeking treatment for these embarrassing, and sometimes debilitating, conditions. However, recent lawsuits related to safety issues with some of these devices that are receiving widespread media attention, particularly in the urinary incontinence sling market, have caused some women to be skeptical of these newer technologies.

The technologies covered in this report include global endometrial devices, endometrial resection devices, uterine fibroid embolization agents, female sterilization devices, and female urinary incontinence slings. The report provides insights into the competitive landscape, the marketed and pipeline products, the current and emerging players and market analysis of the different device segments within the womens health market in the US. The report also provides insight into the unmet needs and an understanding of physician perceptions of the market. This report is built using data and information sourced from secondary sources and primary research interviews with leading gynecologists, urogynecologists, interventional radiologists, and general surgeons, with in-house analysis conducted by GlobalDatas team of industry experts.

The generation of research report is concerned by most clients when purchasing it. Following general steps are taken for generating reports.
1. Choose a topic.
2. Make skeleton catalogue.
3. Fill content. As for report content, there are two main information source, Primary and Secondary data collection. Secondary data collectionrefers to information searched from the Internet or data bought from database. Primary data collection refers to information concluded from telephone interview, face-to-face interview, expert’s interview, meeting etc.
4. Audit the report
5. Publish the report.

With regard to information cost, information searching costs the least, database support the second least, and telephone interview the third least. Face-face interview cost higher, in-depth interview much higher and expert interview the highest. A research may adopt all of these approaches, or just some of them.
In general, a good-quality research report needs 1-3 months to be finished. Time and method varies according to different Publishers. Thus, it’s difficult to define an exact procedure or process of making research report. Both time and cost vary. However, specialization has become a basic industry standard. Professional and dedicated products will be more and more popular.
