On the basis of end user, the minimally invasive surgical instruments market is bifurcated into hospitals, ambulatory surgical clinics (ASCs), and research institutes. Hospitals held the largest share of more than 59.3% in 2016.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) is the fastest growing market for minimally invasive surgical instruments

APAC minimally invasive surgical instruments industry is predicted to witness the fastest growth in demand, registering 11.5% CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increasing number of patients suffering from chronic diseases, rising geriatric population, increasing per capita income, and improving healthcare facilities in the region.

According to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), people aged 65 years and above constituted approximately 11.4% of the population in 2013, and the count is estimated to increase by approximately 20% by 2050. With rising population there are also chances for the population to get subjected to diseases. Thus, these rising figures, with respect to the geriatric population, are an important factor leading to the increasing demand for minimally invasive surgical instruments in the region.

The rising per capita income is likely to increase the affordability of people for expensive surgical procedures, involving minimally invasive surgical instruments. According to the World Bank, the GDP per capita of India increased from $1,345.8 in 2010 to $1,709.4 in 2016. A similar trend has been observed for other developing countries, such as Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, and Indonesia, which is contributing to the growth of the APAC market.

Mergers and acquisitions are taking place at a high rate among players for a larger share

Globally, key players in the minimally invasive surgical instruments industry are acquiring other firms to gain a larger market share. For instance, in June 2017, Johnson & Johnson acquired Actelion Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (Actelion). Actelion manufactures the surgical devices.
