Global Statistics Representing General Surgical Devices Market Scenario

In the few last decades, global healthcare expenditure has increased by several folds. Centre for Medicare and Medical Services is expecting 5.5% growth every year in the U.S. national health spending and is expected to reach USD 5.7 trillion by 2026. General surgical devices are necessary to manage multiple healthcare conditions such as thoracic, abdominal, orthopedic, among others. Globally, the total volume of surgeries has increased, which, also increased the demand for general surgical devices.

The growing geriatric population and rising prevalence of infectious diseases are expected to support the market growth further. The early adoption of unhealthy habits such as cigarette smoking and consumption of alcohol is causing various diseased conditions. Additionally, the growing number of road accidents and rising demand for disposable supplies such as syringes, needles, lancets, and others are pushing the market ahead.

However, increased risk and unavailability of medical facilities in underdeveloped regions are some of the challenges manufacturers need to address if they want to expand their market presence and revenue. Nevertheless, advancing healthcare technology and the lack of medical facilities in developing areas are offering growth opportunities to enter the untapped market.

The global general surgical devices market was valued at USD 13,862.2 million in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period 2019–2026.

Regional Analysis

Globally, the general surgical device market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.

North America has a well-developed healthcare sector, especially in the U.S. and Canada. The sector is also known to adopt advanced technology more rapidly to serve the large patient pool better. 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.
