Industry Insights

The global electrosurgical devices market size was valued at USD 4.46 billion in 2015. Growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries and increasing adoption of technologically advanced products are driving market growth. Growing awareness regarding the most recent surgical techniques in developing regions is expected to ensure swift growth of the global market.

Electrosurgical procedures are used in a variety of medical disciplines, including urology, pneumology, gynecology, gastroenterology, abdominal surgery, general surgery, and others. High unmet need for minimally invasive surgeries provides huge scope for growth as electrosurgery finds application in most of the important surgical procedures, such as cutting, coagulation, devitalization, and thermofusion. The preference of electrosurgery over conventional surgical techniques can mainly be attributed to principal factors such as low risk to the patient, faster recovery time, minimal chances of infection, and ease of usage. In addition, electrosurgical procedures can be easily performed in an office setting, thus the use of electrosurgical devices is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

Method Insights

Based on methods, the electrosurgical devices market is segmented into monopolar and bipolar devices. The bipolar segment captured the largest share in 2015. Enhanced safety and ease of use are some of the factors expected to drive the segment growth, thus the bipolar segment is expected to dominate throughout the forecast period.

Monopolar devices have several risks, including unintended burns, stimulation of tissues, and current shunting, whereas bipolar procedures are safer, even on the patients with pacemakers. The bipolar segment is anticipated to experience surge with its growing applications in sensitive cases, including those pertaining to neurology, ophthalmology, and otolaryngology.

Product Insights

Based on products, the market is segmented as electrosurgical generators, active electrodes, dispersive electrodes, and other accessories. Introduction of technologically advanced electrodes and growing applications of disposable electrodes are driving the growth of the active electrode segment. Active electrodes are an integral part of electrosurgical procedures. A wide range of these electrodes is available and is used based on certain variables, such as surgery objective and tissue types involved. Thus, the active electrode segment captured the largest share in 2015 and is expected to maintain it throughout the forecast period.

Growth of the dispersive electrodes segment is anticipated to be impeded by increasing usage of bipolar equipment. Bipolar procedures do not require dispersive electrodes, unlike monopolar. Other segment includes accessories used along with the electrosurgical equipment including, but not limited to, gas chambers, tubing, wirings, and electrosurgical pencils.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2015. This can be attributed to the local presence of a large number of players and high level of competition in the region. High adoption rate of advanced technology and the presence of skilled professionals are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. The U.S., which held the largest share of the global market in 2015, is decider of the market dynamics with a large customer base. Country’s economy, government policies, as well as well-established healthcare sector provides favorable scenario for the market growth. For instance, there are no c-codes for electrosurgical devices in the country. Hospitals do not receive additional reimbursements for the devices with c-code.

High-paced economic advancements, growing foreign direct investments, and rising awareness about advanced and minimally invasive surgical techniques are the factors expected to fuel the growth in the Asia Pacific region. Hence, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Electrosurgical Devices Market Share Insights

The market is currently consolidated with a few companies capturing the maximum share. However, recent market dynamics and increasing demand for innovative technologies are making way for a number of new entrants. The emergence of local players in developing countries, especially in China and India, are expected to increase the competition at the global level. These local players offer equipment at a much lesser price due to the availability of low-cost labor and raw materials in the country.

Some of the major players operating in this sector include Covidien plc; Olympus Corporation; Ethicon, Inc.; Boston Scientific; B. Braun Melsungen AG; Kirwan Surgical Products, LLC; Smith and Nephew; Parkell, Inc.; Bovie Medical Corporation; and ATMOS, Inc.
