NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DescriptionUltrasonic aspirators have been used in neurosurgery for over 30 years and because of this, it is a relatively mature market with limited growth potential. The majority of the growth in ultrasonic aspirators will occur in their growth in other specialties but growth in the neurological space is fairly stable. In this space the ultrasonic aspirator market has become a replacement business, and technological advances have slowed, therefore unit sales are expected to remain relatively flat over the forecast period. The price for the capital equipment includes the aspirator unit as well as the associated hand pieces, with an average of 1.5 hand pieces per unit. The ASP has come down significantly over the years, with a downward market trend beginning in 2009 due to price pressure but is now relatively stable. Only the capital equipment is included in the market value included in this segment. The capital equipment only accounts for approximately 40% of the total ultrasonic aspirator market value.

AbstractUltrasonic aspirators are used to remove unwanted tissue that is adjacent or attached to vital structures in a minimally invasive fashion. By converting electrical energy into high-frequency sonic waves, ultrasonic aspirators break down soft tissues through vibration in order to preserve surrounding fibrous tissue while simultaneously irrigating and aspirating the area. Ultrasonic aspirators are designed to maximize selectivity of tissue to give the neurosurgeon greater control. Neurosurgeons can use ultrasonic aspirators to remove tumors in hard-to-reach areas by cavitation. Tissues with moderate or high fluid content are easiest to fragment, like tumors, parenchyma and fat. However, most devices on the market today have the capability to also break down tougher tissues, such as fine bones.
