The colposcopy procedure has gained acceptance as a key technique for the diagnosis of cervical cancer, one of the most common cancers among women globally. The increasing patient pool and disease burden will boost the requirement for effective cervical colposcopy equipment for close examination.

The preference for early disease diagnosis and screening programs has also increased to reduce mortality rate, thereby creating growth opportunities for colposcopy device developers. However, the lack of favorable reimbursement policies may hinder industry expansion over the forthcoming years. This technology-oriented medical device also integrates digital cameras and software platforms to generate fast and accurate results, thereby incurring high costs and limiting product usage to some extent.

Colposcopy market share from the digital product segment is slated to depict over 3% CAGR through 2032. This is driven by the advancement in digital camera technology and the introduction of high-definition lenses, which are helping to improve cervical cancer diagnostics. For example, the Lutech LT-300 SD digital video colposcope was designed to ensure ease of control and operation, be less strenuous on the body, and streamline data upload, storage, and retrieval. These features can help deliver visual clarity and motion pictures, supporting accurate diagnosis and enhancing product usage.


Colposcopy market value from the portable mobility segment is set to be worth over USD 338 million by 2032, given the ease of installation, high-definition image delivery, and stable cervix examination, among other advantages. Limited access to cervical cancer screening equipment is also expected to augment the use of portable colposcopes, especially in low- and middle-income economies. To detect cervical lesions and advance treatment expertise, healthcare professionals have been relying on devices with computer-aided cervical mapping features, further boosting the production of portable colposcopes.


Based on the area of diagnosis, the colposcopy market size from the pelvic segment was valued at over USD 480.5 million in 2022, due to the introduction of new screening programs for cervical cancer. In 2019, the proportion of people who received colposcope examinations or referrals accounted for over 50% in China. Pelvic colposcopy examinations are also being conducted to analyze inflammation, cancerous changes, infection, and traumatic injuries in the vagina and cervix. Furthermore, the ability of the pelvic exam to diagnose precancerous changes in the vulva will drive market dynamics over the forthcoming years.


With respect to end-use, the colposcopy market value from the clinics segment will cross USD 114 million by 2032, owing to the increasing patient access to colposcopy diagnosis. Clinic chain expansions are also increasing steadily, creating strong demand for medical products such as colposcopes. Citing an instance, in January 2023, the San Diego American Indian Health Center announced a USD 25 million fundraising effort to build a clinic. These initiatives, alongside the growing number of patients making return visits for cervical cancer diagnosis, will amplify the adoption of colposcopes in clinics.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

Movement restrictions following the COVID-19 outbreak disrupted the spectrum of cancer care, mainly in the initial phase of the pandemic. The crisis also impacted the aspect of cancer research, with several countries classifying cancer diagnostics and screening as a relatively low-priority service. The Scotland government, for example, delayed cancer surgeries and suspended screening programs for cervical and other cancer types, which may have had a negative influence on market trends. However, the heightening cancer awareness in the post-pandemic period is likely to accelerate colposcope development, bolstering the global industry outlook.
