Type of Surgery and Procedure Insights

Cosmetic surgery and procedure have been broadly categorized into surgical and nonsurgical. Cosmetics surgery or surgical procedure is segmented into breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), and breast lift. Nonsurgical segment further segmented into botulinum toxin, dermal fillers, laser hair removal, chemical peels, photo rejuvenation, and micro-dermabrasion.

The global increase in population also results in an increased demand for antiaging cosmetic and aesthetic treatments. Owing to its distinctive viscoelastic and moisturizing properties coupled with lower toxicity levels, demand for hyaluronic acid products are directly affected by growing application in minimally invasive antiaging solutions.

In January 2017, Allergan launched Juvéderm Volite, which is claimed to maintain results up to 9 months. The company also undertook dynamic acquisitions and completed two transactions, ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc, and Tobira Therapeutics in the last 6 months.

Invasive or cosmetic surgery accounted for the highest share in 2016. The dominance of this segment can be attributed to increased affordability, enhanced safety, and long-lasting results of surgeries. The nonsurgical procedures segment is estimated to grow at a higher rate over the forecast period. This is due to increasing aesthetic awareness amongst the population, rise in medical tourism in regions such as India, South Korea, Brazil, and Singapore. In addition, nonsurgical procedures are more economical for patients.

Nonsurgical procedures such as dermal fillers, laser hair removal, and chemical peels are expected to propel the market growth, owing to the increase in adoption & awareness and technological advancements. For instance, advancements made in cosmetic & reconstructive procedures, such as microdermabrasion and photorejuvenation, are likely to boost the market over the forecast period. For instance, photorejuvenation is replacing expensive surgeries such as cosmetic plastic surgeries.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the global cosmetic surgery and procedure market in 2016 and accounted for more than 40% of the total market in 2016. This is owing to increased awareness about cosmetic surgeries, their growing demand, and easy availability of several commercialized procedures & skilled professionals in this region.

The popularity of non-invasive aesthetic procedures is high in this region, which has grown by 44% since 2011 and accounts for 42% of the total expenditure on cosmetic procedures in this region. The growing geriatric population and their desire to remain attractive drive the market for antiaging products. In 2015, Pestle & Mortar Cosmetics, a UK-based company, launched its hyaluronic acid-based serum in the US.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025, owing to the growing demand for cosmeceutical surgeries in Japan, South Korea, India, and China. Growing aesthetic awareness amongst the population and increasing medical tourism in the region due to developing healthcare infrastructure & affordable treatments are likely to propel the market.

Large target population of China makes it an attractive market for industry players. The growing demand for dermal fillers is partially fulfilled by people traveling to South Korea for aesthetic procedures. Many industry players are aligning their strategic initiatives to capture the untapped market in China. In March 2015, BMG Pharma s.r.l. announced its entry into the market in China by launching its product, Ialuxid gel. Luqa Pharmaceuticals assisted the company with marketing and distribution of the product.
