In terms of market by product type, the standardized patient simulation market segment accounted for the largest share in the Gynecological Care Simulators market in the year 2020
On the basis of product type, the Gynecological Care Simulators market is segmented as standardized patient simulation, virtual reality simulation, tissue-based simulation, and others. The increasing use of simulation 3D models for training and development of medical and nursing students is anticipated to drive the demand for standardized patient simulation market segment during the forecast period.
The advancement in augmented and virtual reality technologies is driving the demand for virtual reality simulation in gynecological care simulators and the segment is growing at a CAGR of 16.3% during the period 2021-2027. Moreover, the tissue-based simulation program allows students to gain hands-on skills, develop clinical decision-making skills, become familiar with the situations that they may experience in clinical settings, improve their abilities to choose appropriate interruption,s and experience teamwork.
On the basis of application, the speculum examinations market segment is the fastest-growing segment in the Gynecological Care Simulators market
On the basis of application, the Gynecological Care Simulators market is segmented as speculum examination, fallopian occlusion, catheterization, IUD insertion and removal, and others. The IUD insertion and removal and application segment accounted for the largest market share of 28.5% in 2020.
The traditional use of the corpus has organizational and logistics factors such as lack of an efficient number of corpses for dissection in order to prevent student overload, need of trained personnel, health risks due to elongated exposure and contact with copses, and high cost of maintaining dissection labs. Using the simulated models reduces the risks from the labs and medical institutes improving the learning efficiency of students.
On the basis of region, North America held the largest market share in the Gynecological Care Simulators market segment in 2020
In 2020, North America held the largest market share of 46.9% in the gynecological care simulators market and is anticipated to witness similar trends throughout the forecast period. The growing adoption of technologically advanced products in healthcare training along with the growing number of Gynecological surgeries are key factors contributing to the growth of gynecological care simulators. As per the recent statistics published by The Center for Innovative GYN Care in 2020, in the U.S. more than 5,00,000 women undergo a hysterectomy every year and one in three will have a hysterectomy by the age of 60 years. Hysterectomy is the second most common type of women’s surgery after the Caesarean Section.
The growing adoption of immersive technologies such as AR, VR, and MR in the region for training purposes is one of the other key growth factors in the gynecological care simulator industry. Moreover, the rising healthcare expenditure along with increased research and development activities are further anticipated to enhance the Gynecological care simulator market in North America in the years to come.
The U.S. accounted for the largest market share in 2020, and Canada is witnessing the fastest growth in the Gynecological care simulator market in North America during the forecast period. The rising healthcare expenditure in Canada along with the use of immersive technologies for training and research is contributing to the overall demand.
