Increase in incidences of dental caries has resulted in an exponentiation in demand for endodontic devices. Plus, dental tourism has been expanding on a sincere note in the developing countries like Brazil, Mexico, and India. By type, the endodontic devices market spans instruments (endodontic motors, apex locators, endodontic scalers, handpieces, endodontic lasers, machine assisted obturation systems, and others) and endodontic consumables (access preparation, shaping and cleaning, and obturation).
Coming to developments, Brasseler, in June 2018, did launch ESR (EndoSequence Reciprocating) file, which comes across as one of the reciprocating NiTo systems designed especially for providing safety to users by making use of reverse cutting flute design, progressive taper, and heat treated NiTi alloy.
Increasing preference for minimally invasive surgeries is the major factor driving the endoscopes market. Plus, technological advancements are there to stay. By product, endoscopes market spans rigid endoscopes (laparoscopes, arthroscopes, urology endoscopes, cystoscopes, gynecology endoscopes, neuroendoscopes, and others), flexible endoscopes (colonoscopies, upper gastrointestinal endoscopes, bronchoscopes, sigmoidoscopes, laryngoscopes, pharyngoscopes, duodenoscopes, nasopharyngoscopes, rhinoscopes, and others), capsule endoscopes, disposable endoscopes, and robot assisted endoscopes. Application-wise, it’s GI (Gastrointestinal) endoscopy, laparoscopy, gynecology/obstetrics endoscopy, arthroscopy, bronchoscopy, urology endoscopy (cystoscopy), mediastinoscopy, otoscopy, laryngoscopy, and likewise.
Dental laser units market is also flourishing due to growing number of dental disorders. The main advantage of dental laser units is that they minimize bleeding and reduce the requirement of sutures. By product, the market spans all tissue, soft tissue, and dental welding lasers.
Application-wise, it’s endodontic treatment, oral surgery, conservative dentistry, implantology, peri-implantitis, periodontics, and tooth whitening. Epic Pro from Biolase has been designed to give reliable and consistent results.
The demand for clinical trial management systems is soaring due to more number of models of regression and stimulation are coming up for storing as well as interpreting huge quantity of unstructured data that is generated at the time of clinical trials. By mode of delivery, the clinical trial management systems market spans cloud-based, on-premise, and web-based. By type of product, it’s site-based and enterprise-based. By component, it’s hardware, software, and services.
Biosensors consist of 3 parts – a signal transducer, a component identifying an analyte and producing signal, and reader device. The application areas include environmental monitoring, food & beverages, home care diagnostics, and several nanomechanical biosensors. Plat biology is another field wherein biosensors are making a mark.
By product, the biosensors market comprises non-wearable biosensors and wearable sensors. Technology-wise, it’s optical, electrochemical, piezoelectric, thermal, and nanomechanical.
Home infusion therapy devices do administer medications through a catheter or needle into a vein, but, as the name suggests, outside clinical or hospital setting. Product-wise, they are intravenous sets, infusion pumps, IV cannulas, needleless connectors, elastomeric pumps, and others. Application-wise, they are chemotherapy, enteral nutrition, endocrinology, anti-infectives, hydration therapy, and parenteral infusion.
The present-day lifestyle has brought with it numerous chromosomal abnormalities (thanks to late maternity). Also, there are rising incidences of chromosomal aneuploidies in the foetuses. This is where non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) comes into picture. By products & solutions, the IPT market spans kits/consumables, systems (microarrays, Next Generation Sequencing Systems, Polymerase Chain Reaction Instruments, and Nuchal Translucency Ultrasound Devices), and software.
Method-wise, the market consists of cell-free DNA testing and ultrasound screening. By application, it’s Microdeletions Syndrome, Trisomy Detection, Sex Chromosomal Abnormalities, and others (cystic fibrosis and sex determination). Gene expression analysis is also done through the above-mentioned instruments as the increasing number of genetic disorders need to be addressed.
Soft tissue repair is the need of the hour and the demand is expected to continue unabated in the forecast period. This could be credited to the fact stated by the Center for Disease Prevention and Control that over 2.5 Mn teens and children alike get treated for injuries related to sports every single year. Product-wise, the soft tissue repair market says tissue fixation devices (suture anchor, sutures, interference screws, and likewise). By product, it’s tissue matrix (biologic mesh and synthetic mesh) and others.
Advanced wound dressings market, product-wise, spans hydrogel dressings, Alginate dressings, foam dressings, film dressings, antimicrobial dressings, and Hydrocolloid dressings. By diagnosis, it’s pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and surgical wounds. On the developments front, 3M, in October 2019, did announce acquiring Acelity, Inc. to encompass a discrete portfolio of the wound dressings.
