General Surgical Devices Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global general surgical devices market size is forecasted to grow to USD 1.79 billion by the end of 2028 from USD 1.1 billion in 2023. This market is predicted to witness a CAGR of 10.20% between 2023 to 2028.

MARKET DRIVERS:

The growing patient population with chronic diseases is one of the major factors propelling the growth of the general surgical devices market. The prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, respiratory diseases and diabetes has been growing rapidly in the last few years and have become global health concerns. Sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy diets, aging populations and genetic predispositions majorly contribute to the growing incidence of chronic diseases among people. People suffering from chronic diseases often require surgical interventions as part of their treatment or management and are likely to go through surgical procedures. Likewise, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide is fuelling the demand for general surgical devices and contributing to market growth.

The growing global aging population further contributes to the growth of the general surgical devices market. The number of people turning above 60 years is on the rise worldwide. As per the statistics published by World Health Organization (WHO), the population of 60 years and more is estimated to reach 2.1 billion by 2050. People who are aged are more susceptible to age-related diseases and conditions that require surgical treatment. Such patients undergo surgical procedures to alleviate symptoms, improve their quality of life and prolong their lifespan. The aging population is also more likely to experience degenerative musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis that require joint replacement surgeries. The growing number of surgical interventions in the aging population is propelling the demand for general surgical devices and this trend is likely to continue in the coming years and promote the market growth.

Technological advancements propel the general surgical devices market growth. Surgical technology has experienced several technological advancements in recent years such as minimally invasive procedures, robotic surgery and advanced imaging techniques. These technological advancements further resulted in the increased adoption of general surgical devices as they offer benefits such as reduced trauma, shorter recovery time, and improved patient outcomes. The growing healthcare expenditure supports the growth of the general surgical devices market. Healthcare expenditure by the governments of various countries and people has been growing gradually over the last several years and this has contributed to the improved healthcare infrastructure and access to surgical procedures and boosted the demand for general surgical devices. This trend is expected to propel in the coming years and fuel market growth.

The growing number of initiatives and reimbursement policies by governments that support surgical procedures and promote access to healthcare services, the rise in medical tourism, and strategic collaborations and partnerships of market participants with healthcare providers and research institutions to develop innovative surgical solutions and improve patient care accelerate the market growth. The rising awareness about the benefits of surgical interventions and patient education about the available treatment options, the growing number of surgical procedures, continuous advancements in materials science and manufacturing techniques, an increasing number of elective surgeries such as cosmetic procedures and joint replacements and rising emphasis of patient safety and infection control in surgical procedures further drive the general surgical devices market growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

Stringent regulatory requirements and approval processes for general surgical devices and the high cost associated with the development, manufacturing, and maintenance of general surgical devices primarily hamper the market growth. Limited reimbursement policies or inadequate coverage for certain surgical procedures and devices and the shortage of skilled surgeons and healthcare professionals trained in the use of advanced surgical devices further hinder the growth of the global market. The availability of alternative treatment options, such as non-surgical interventions or alternative therapies and limited healthcare infrastructure in some countries are diluting the growth rate of the global general surgical devices market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the general surgical devices market:

The burden on health systems by the COVID-19 pandemic has varied across countries and regions. As a result, the volumes of general surgery procedures and the sales of their associated devices have also varied globally. In the United States, the initial wave of the pandemic occurred in 2020, causing an almost 52% year-over-year drop in sales of laparoscopic access instruments, such as trocars and retractors, which are frequently used in general surgery. However, as elective surgeries resumed at the end of 2020 and were performed at 75% - 92% before COVID-19 rates, most surgical device companies began to recover lost revenue immediately. As a result, the overall decline in sales for 2020 was not as severe as initially expected. As the ongoing global deployment of COVID-19 vaccines continues and healthcare systems respond more aggressively to the demand for elective interventions, the market for general surgery devices is expected to grow in 2021. This increase in market value could continue until 2022, depending on global vaccine distribution and inoculation rates.
