Surgical Instrument Market Growth Expected

A report from Allied Market Research forecasts growth in the surgical equipment market.

The global surgical equipment market was valued at $9.8 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach $15.71 billion by 2023, according to Allied Market Research. This indicates a compound annual  growth rate (CAGR) of 7.0 percent during the forecast period. Surgical equipment includes medical devices used to cut, coagulate, desiccate and fulgurate body tissues during surgical procedures.

The growth in the surgical equipment market is driven by many factors including an increase in the demand for surgical tools due to rising number of surgical procedures, according to the report.

“Moreover, increasing health care expenditure, increasing demand of plastic and reconstructive surgery and rising demand for technologically advanced minimal invasive surgical procedures are further expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. Stringent government regulations and lack of proper reimbursement for surgical equipment may hamper the market growth during the forecast period,” according to Allied Market Research.

“A high number of surgical procedures are performed all over the world. According to OMICS International Conferences, 2015, approximately 234 million surgical procedures are performed annually. This is another factor likely to drive the market in the coming years,” according to Grand View Research.
