Global advanced bipolar direct energy devices market estimated to exceed USD 1.5 billion by 2020
According to Technavio analysts, the global advanced bipolar direct energy devices market would exceed USD 1.5 billion by 2020 by growing at a CAGR of over 14%. The key factors driving the growth of the market include the rise in global demand for minimally invasive surgery, affordable prices, efficiency in cutting and sealing, and the increased adoption of these devices due to reduced damage in the surrounding tissue at the surgical site. The traditional devices such as staples and clips are also becoming less popular, as bipolar electrosurgical devices are an effective and inexpensive method to coagulate tissue prior to dissection. Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Karl Storz, Medtronic, and Olympus Medical Systems are the major players of the market.
