Hence as the prevalence and mortality rate of Uterine cancer increase, the demand for equipment for diagnosis and treatment for such illnesses will increase
Moreover, the United States is a developed country and has a well-structured healthcare system. As a result, the expenditure on research and development for equipment that is minimally invasive and more effective is also high.
Hence, owing to these factors, the United States is expected to cover a large share of the Hysteroscope Market.
