However, the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has hugely affected the overall aesthetic market. But many aesthetic professionals believe that the pandemic might propel the growth of the market for body contouring devices. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the pandemic led to an increase in the acceptance of cosmetic procedures. The association carried out a survey of more than 1,000 women stating that 11% of the women are now more inclined and interested in nonsurgical procedures than before the pandemic.

Rising cases of obesity across the globe due to unhealthy lifestyles are anticipated to drive the market for body contouring devices. Improved safety and efficacy of these techniques resulting in increased life expectancy are also expected to boost their demand. Initiatives, such as M&A, novel product launches and partnerships, undertaken by major companies for product research and distribution are expected to drive the market further in the coming years.

In North America, the noninvasive and minimally invasive devices segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 14.4% from 2021 to 2028. Noninvasive fat reduction or nonsurgical fat reduction includes minimally invasive treatments that break down stubborn subcutaneous fat pockets beneath the skin. Major factors driving market growth include rising demand for body contouring treatment, as it is noninvasive and requires no downtime after completion of the procedure. SculpSure, developed by Cynosure, Inc., is a non-invasive body contouring laser device that targets and destroys around 24% of unwanted fat cells in 25 minutes.

According to the WHO, obesity is a global epidemic that has tripled since 1975, and currently, about 30% of the world’s population is obese. A sedentary lifestyle is a major underlying cause of obesity, disease, and disability. Levels of physical inactivity are virtually high in all developed and developing countries.

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic had affected the overall aesthetic and beauty market. All invasive and noninvasive esthetic procedures were severely affected amid the pandemic; this includes the body contouring market. According to Bloomberg, procedures such as non-invasive fat reduction, injection lipolysis, invasive liposuction soft tissue fillers, facelifts, eye lifts, eyelid surgeries, laser skin resurfacing, rhinoplasty, and tummy tucks decreased by 20% in the first half of 2020.

Type Insights

The noninvasive and minimally invasive devices segment dominated the market for body contouring devices and held the maximum share of 76.7% in 2020. The segment is expected to maintain dominance during the forecast period. Entry of various products, investment by market players, and high demand for noninvasive and minimally invasive procedures due to safe and cost-effective nature are some of the factors for the dominance in the market.

Invasive body contouring procedure, Liposuction or lipolysis, has remained one of the most popular and in-demand plastic surgery procedures for body contouring and is particularly effective in removing fat in the legs, abdomen, back, arms, face, and neck. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), liposuction was the second-most carried out procedure in the U.S. after breast augmentation, with 270,670 procedural volume in 2019.

Liposuction is considered one of the most effective procedures for body fat removal, as it can remove up to 5 liters (11 pounds) of fat from this procedure. However, with the advent of non-invasive treatments that are cost-effective and deliver the same results, the demand for liposuction has witnessed a slight decline. According to Healthline, as the procedure requires surgical intervention, its cost might be more than other procedures and this might impede market growth.

The segment is expected to grow at a fast rate during the forecast period. This can be attributed to minimally invasive and noninvasiveness of the procedures and low cost as compared to an invasive procedure.

The others segment includes injectable body contouring and gastric band. Injectable body contouring can be done by FDA-approved treatment injections called Kybella. This injection contains deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by the body to target fat cells. Kybella is injected every month for 3 to 6 sessions and after the treatment, the body breaks down and absorbs fat cells.

The non-surgical skin tightening segment is also expected to witness a CAGR of 15.0% during the forecast period. This is because, with age, collagen increases, and elastin production in the body decreases, giving the appearance of fine lines and dull and sagging skin.
