The global cholecystectomy market is expected to boost owing to factors such as the increasing prevalence of gallstone disease, the rising geriatric population, increasing preference for elective laparoscopic surgeries, and growing awareness of early disease diagnosis. Additionally, factors such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, poor dietary habits, physical inactivity, and liver cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis C virus infections are causing the development of gallstone diseases and are eventually expected to fuel the market during the projection period.

Gallstones and other gallbladder problems that are symptomatic are frequently treated with cholecystectomy. Cholecystectomy was the eighth most frequent surgical treatment carried out in American hospitals in 2011. An open surgical procedure or a laparoscopic method can be used to remove a cholecyst. The surgery is often used for the treatment of gallstones and to avoid the severe complications caused by it.

According to an article published by NCBI in April 2022, around 20 million people in the U.S. are suffering from gallstones disease. Among these, nearly 300,000 cholecystectomy surgeries are performed yearly. Almost 10% are asymptomatic gallstones and around 20% are symptomatic gallstones. The prevalence of gallstone disorders increases with the increasing age, and it is predominantly found in females. In the age group of 50 to 65 years, around 5% of males and 20% of females have gallstone disorders.

On the basis of surgery type, the market is segmented into laparoscopic cholecystectomy, open cholecystectomy. Furthermore, on the basis of indications, the market is classified into cholelithiasis (gallstones in the gallbladder), choledocholithiasis (gallstones in the bile duct), cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas due to gallbladder), and others includes large gallbladder cysts. Based on end users, the market is trifurcated into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and other that includes specialty clinics.

The rising geriatric population is driving the market as the risk of gallstone disorders is more for the aged population. The population under the age of 40 years has around an 8% chance of getting gallstones whereas the group of people above the age 70 and above has an almost 50% chance of developing the gallstones. Additionally, the rate of cholecystectomy surgeries is increased by 60% owing to a higher inclination toward laparoscopic procedures and a rising number of elective surgeries. However, almost 10% of patients undergoing cholecystectomy witnessed similar symptoms post-surgery, this condition is known as a post-cholecystectomy syndrome. Moreover, risk factors associated with the cholecystectomy procedures such as wound infection, bile duct injury, retained gallstones, abscess formation, excessive bleeding, and bile duct stenosis may hamper the growth of the market in the projection period.
