European Market Report for Transcervical Female Sterilization 2016: Bayer is the Sole Competitor Offering the Essure Product – Research and Markets

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “European
Market Report for Transcervical Female Sterilization”
report to
their offering.

There are different procedures to perform female sterilization,
including tubal ligation, mechanical blockage with a clip or band,
bipolar electrocoagulation or transcervical implants. In this report,
only the transcervical implant market is covered.

The transcervical implant market in Europe currently consists of Bayer
AG as the sole competitor offering the Essure® product. Essure® was
first developed by the company Conceptus in 2001 and was certified for
sale throughout Europe, with the first sale occurring in October 2002.
In the United States, Essure® was subsequently approved by the FDA on
November 4th, 2002.

In April 2013, Bayer AG acquired Conceptus to offer Essure® as part of
their contraceptive portfolio. In the United Kingdom, the National
Institute for Health and Care Excellence approved Essure® in 2009, the
last European country to do so. Since Essure® entered the market in
2002, other notable competitors have been the Ovabloc System and the
Adiana procedure. Both of these procedures have since been discontinued.
