Here, people spend a huge sum on healthcare to receive quality treatment. Every year, a huge amount of surgeries is being performed in the region. As a result of the high prevalence of various chronic, acute, and lifestyle-related diseases such as diabetes, stroke, and obesity.  For instance, over 48 million surgeries were performed in 2009, and the number has grown many folds since then.  Moreover, 1,258,581 cesarean deliveries were performed in the U.S. in 2016, which is 31.9% of total births. It makes the region one of the most prominent markets globally.

Europe is estimated to be the second-largest market, followed by the Asia Pacific. The increasing volume of surgery in the region and the rapid adoption of the latest technology are driving its growth. For instance, in 2014, over 4.2 million cataract surgery was conducted in European Union countries.

Asia Pacific general surgical device market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing number of surgeries, the largest diabetic and obese population,  and huge investment in the healthcare sector by the governments and private players. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), over 47% of Chinese adults are likely to have diabetes or prediabetes. Additionally, a high rate of road accidents is further boosting the market growth. According to the Supreme Court of India (Committee for Road Safety), 1,50,935 people died in a road accident in 2016.

LAMEA is expected to show healthy growth during the forecast period on account of the growing geriatric population and an increasing number of surgeries in the region. Moreover, the lack of medical facilities in Africa may slow down the growth trajectory in the years to come.
