Bariatric Surgery Devices Market By Type (Adjustable Gastric Bands, Intragastric Balloons, Implantable Gastric Stimulators, Gastric Surgery Clamps, Clip Appliers, Sutures, Surgical Staples And Trocars, Others ) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

Bariatric surgery devices market estimated to reach US$ 3,163.5 Mn by 2026 from US$ 2,006.0 Mn in 2017, at CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Bariatric surgery employs numerous techniques for treating obesity such as balloon placement or banding of the stomach. According to American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, in 2010, sleeve gastrectomy accounted for 9.3%, while gastric bypass surgery account for 58.4% procedures and 28.8% were gastric band procedures in the United States. This trend changed within few years due to increased adoption of sleeve gastrectomy surgery, where sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass counted for 49% and 43.8% share respectively and the share of gastric band procedures has plummeted to 6%. Such drastic change in the adoption of procedures has affected the dynamics in the global bariatric surgery market. According to our report, the market share (in terms of value) of the gastric band has decreased to less than 10% in 2017. Containment in post-surgical infection, faster treatment outcomes, and permanent nature of this procedure have led to increased adoption of sleeve gastrectomy. Furthermore, with the increased adoption of minimally invasive therapies globally, the market of devices engaged in these surgeries have surged in the recent years. For instance, surgical stapling and trocars contribute more than 30% of the market share in 2017.

According to a study published by Gen re Business School, the prevalence of obesity in Asia Pacific vary from 28.3% in New Zealand to 1.7% in Vietnam in 2008. Further, the prevalence of obesity in china increased to 27.9% in 2013 from 11.3% in 1980. Such high growth of obesity coupled with increased prevalence in the region contributes to the growth of the Asia Pacific market. Additionally, Asia Pacific expected to be the most lucrative market owing to growing urban population, favorable government initiatives, increasing medical tourism and high prevalence of obesity. Furthermore, growth in Middle East & Africa is higher than the global growth rate of the market tailing Latin America.
