An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

How is Increased Frequency of Surgeries Spurring Electrosurgery Devices Adoption?

The growing number of diseases such as cardiac illness, gynecological, urological, age correction is growing demand for electrosurgery devices in the market. Besides, an increase in the number of cosmetic surgeries is also spurring adoption of electrosurgery devices.

Several innovations have been introduced recently to lower complication rates and increase accuracy when using monopolar electrosurgical devices. The ease of use of these devices plus the lack of foreign materials left behind after surgeries are increasing the demand for these devices.

How do Electrosurgical Devices Assist in Preventing Blood Loss?

Reduced thermal spread and lowering blood loss made this device increasingly popular in the medical field. Increasing demand for electrosurgery devices can be attributed to lowered hemorrhage risk in patients with the use of these devices.

As cardiac surgeries are increasing with each passing day, the demand for surgical operations involving minimum patient discomfort by retaining as much blood as possible is rising, ultimately paving the way for increased deployment of electrosurgical devices.

How is Exposure to Surgical Smoke an Impediment to Electrosurgery Devices Adoption?

Although highly efficient and accurate, electrosurgical devices increased patients and surgeons vulnerability to respiratory issues arising out of smoke generation. Commonly known as surgical smoke, this is often highly toxic upon inhalation.

Surgical smoke is generated when a device increases intracellular temperatures that causes tissues to vaporize. It often contains chemicals such as hydrogen cyanide, perchloroethylene, carbon monoxide and benzene, which are known carcinogens.  The American Safety and Health Administration has projected that nearly 500,000 personnel are exposed to electrosurgical smoke annually. Hence, adoption of these devices is expected to remain limited.

Moreover, these regions are driven by well-developed healthcare infrastructure, highly sophisticated equipment, skilled practitioners, and government support is driving demand for electrosurgical devices in the market. An increase in the number of cardiac operations in these regions is contributing to a growing demand for electrosurgery equipment in the region.    

Why is Asia Seeing a Rise in Electrosurgical Devices Adoption?

Asia is predicted to grow the fastest during the forecast period. As regional population increases and conditions such as cardiac and general diseases and illnesses worsen, electrosurgery devices demand will also rise. A CAGR of around 4% is projected for the Asian market.

Electrosurgery devices in the market are in demand due to the growing population and increased need for laparoscopic surgery in these regions. Technology firms invest in developing countries to expand their footprint in the marketplace to meet the enormous demand for electrosurgery devices there.

Category-wise Insights

Why are Radiofrequency Electrosurgery Devices Highly Sought After?

Radiofrequency electrosurgery devices are expected to generate over 40% of total market revenue. These devices help reduce the morbidity associated with tonsillar hypertrophy treatment. Growing medical concerns about healing time after surgeries are driving the demand for radiofrequency devices.

Surgeons increasingly prefer to have minimal infections after surgeries, which is driving the market for high-end radiofrequency devices. Radiation frequencies during surgery are being increasingly used to ensure minimal tissue damage around the surgical site.

Why is Gynecology Emerging as the Primary Application Area?

A demand for electrosurgery devices in the medical field has been spurred by increasing demand for safe deliveries. According to Fact.MR, a CAGR exceeding 5% has been projected for this segment through 2031.

The increasing lifestyle changes, dietary habits, inactivity, and depression in women are contributing to a rise in gynecologic illnesses, where doctors recommend surgery, which is growing the market for electrosurgery devices.

How are Hospitals emerging as the Primary End Users of Electrosurgery Devices?

By end user, hospitals are expected to be the major employers of electrosurgery devices, exceeding a revenue share of US$ 3 Bn as of 2020. Hospitals perform bulk of all specialized and general surgeries, hence catapulting demand.

As they constitute an integral part of any surgical setup, electrosurgery devices are experiencing ever-expanding sales across new as well as existing hospitals. Sales are especially robust across the developing regions, as visits to professional healthcare settings for treatment is high.

Competitive Landscape
