Bariatric Surgery Devices Market: Global Size, Share, Trends, Growth and Forecast 2022-2032
Bariatric Surgery Devices Market: Overview and Definition
The global bariatric surgery devices market size was estimated to be worth USD 1.8 billion in 2021 and is poised to reach USD 3.5 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2022 to 2032. Bariatric surgeries also referred to as weight loss surgeries generally include a variety of procedures performed on the gastrointestinal tract of people who are obese. It is typically carried out for the treatment of the co-morbid condition that is associated with morbid obesity.
Bariatric surgery predominantly aims to reduce the weight of an individual with the help of a surgery that reduces the size of stomach by removing a portion of tissues or fats of the stomach or by altering gut hormone levels that are responsible for hunger and satiety, resulting in a new hormonal weight set point leading to reduction in appetite. Bariatric surgery devices are clinical equipments or devices used to perform such highly sophisticated bariatric surgeries for weight loss. They limit the food holding capacity of stomach, thereby causing nutrients malabsorption. There are different devices used in different procedures of bariatric surgeries as per the functionality and requirement of the devices.
The growth of this market is attributed towards major relying factors including; the burgeoning incidence of obesity in adults worldwide as a result of changing lifestyle habits and excessive intake of calories, the increasing number of bariatric and metabolic surgeries performed globally, the rapidly increasing co-morbidities such as diabetes, the rising number of regulatory approvals for bariatric surgery devices, the rapid emergence of minimally invasive (MI) bariatric procedures with reduced postoperative stress, the rising awareness about the adverse effects of obesity and the available treatment options among people and the rising expenditure on weight loss procedures etc.
Additionally, the advent of newer and advanced medical technologies by the market players in the bariatric surgery market is leading to the introduction and launch of innovative surgical devices with enhanced features and outcomes. Some popular developments include the development of device with improved cosmetic results and minimal pain, the introduction of a device by Medtronic for sleeve gastrectomy that can be used as standalone device, whereas, the traditional method of performing sleeve gastrectomy involves the use of three devices coupled with the improvements in the surgical procedures such as Hand-Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery (HALS), Primary Obesity Surgery Endoluminal (POSE) and Laparoscopic Greater Curvature Plication (LGCP) etc. Alongside, the bolstering trend of rapid integration of surgical robots with bariatric equipment and minimally invasive surgeries coupled with the growing demand for various visualization instruments augment the growth of the bariatric surgery devices market considerably.
Moreover, governments across different regions are rolling out favorable initiatives for research programs focused at obesity treatment and insurance coverage for the treatment of obesity. For instance, the recent introduction of the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act, 2017 is set to increase the range of obesity treatments that Medicare is currently said to cover. As per the data published by the Obesity Society, only around 26% of the obese population in the U.S. is at present covered under the Medicare, Medicaid and other essential health benefit plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This vigorously expands the overall demand and adoption of bariatric surgeries across the globe and hence leads to the comprehensive growth of the bariatric surgery devices market.
Furthermore, other factors such as the high adoption of sedentary consumer lifestyle along with unhealthy food habits among people, the lack of physical exercise in adolescent and adult population, the increasing availability of surgeons specialized in bariatric surgical techniques and the emerging trend of medical tourism across regions further contribute exponentially in the growth of the bariatric surgery devices market.
However, factors such as the increasing number of product recalls of various bariatric devices, the post-operative complications of bariatric surgeries, the high costs associated with bariatric surgeries and the presence of stringent regulatory scenario in developed countries hamper the growth of this market.
