Industry Insights

The global eyelid surgery market size was valued at USD 3.3 billion in 2018 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.8% by 2026. As the skin ages, it gradually loses its elasticity, thereby causing wrinkles and bulges around the eyelid. Thus, rising geriatric population and growing demand for non-invasive surgical procedures are some of the major factors driving the market.

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty treatment is mainly performed to enhance the aesthetic appeal of eyes by correcting baggy eyelids, droopy eyelids, and other eyelid defects & disfigurations. Through blepharoplasty, excess fatty deposits can be altered, which reduces puffiness of the eyes. Thus, increasing incidence of such conditions is propelling demand for eyelid surgery, thereby driving growth.

For instance, modern technologies using plasma exeresis method are cost-effective & non-invasive and have immediate effect. Such technological advancements are expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Growing prevalence of eye-associated problems, especially in geriatric population, is expected to aid growth. Eye conditions such as droopy eyes, blurry vision, & wrinkles near the eyes are increasing globally, thereby stimulating the need for the targeted surgeries. This will ultimately boost demand in the forecast period. In addition, the demand for better appearance is also fueling market growth.

Eyelid problems are highly prevalent in Asia Pacific, especially China. Annually, millions of young people in China undergo eyelid surgery due to rising disposable income, the desire to look younger, or professional reasons.

Procedure Type Insights

By procedure type, global eyelid surgery market is divided into upper eyelid and lower eyelid surgeries. Upper eyelid surgery segment held the largest share in 2018 and is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the forecast period owing to its high popularity compared to lower eyelid surgery.

Upper eyelid surgery removes excess skin along the upper eyelids & tightens drooping skin for better vision, which was earlier obstructed. Smoother forehead and more youthful appearance are few benefits that this surgery offers. These benefits attract consumers, which ultimately increases demand for eyelid surgeries.

The lower eyelid surgery segment is also expected to grow significantly in the forecast period owing to its benefits. Lower eyelid surgery removes fats, loose skin, & excessive skin in the lower lids, improves under bags, reduces circles, and smoothens eyelid lines & wrinkles. Awareness of these benefits among the large population is propelling the market.

End-use Insights

By end use, the market is categorized into hospitals and clinics & surgery centers. Clinics & surgery centers segment held the maximum share in 2018 and is anticipated to dominate the market in the forecast period owing to increasing number of clinics and skilled cosmetic & plastic surgeons and rising preference for blepharoplasty. Moreover, increasing use of Botox or Dysport by clinic surgeons is propelling market growth. These injections effectively help raise eyebrows, thereby attracting customers for cosmetic surgeries.

The hospitals segment is also expected to grow significantly in the forecast period owing to factors such as improving infrastructure of hospitals, especially in the developing economies. In addition, the availability of high number of surgeons and advanced medical instruments is propelling growth of hospitals segment.

Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.

Moreover, quick adoption of innovative techniques and devices by the region is fueling the market.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing aging population, rising demand for cosmetic surgery, and gaining popularity of blepharoplasty as a medical treatment. In addition, growing number of patients undergoing eyelid surgery in economies such as South Korea & Japan and expanding cosmetic industry in India & China is expected to fuel growth in the forecast period. Rising number of eyelid surgeries in China is majorly due to increasing disposable income, growing acceptance of various cosmetic surgeries, and willingness to spend on improving appearance.

Latin America is also expected to grow considerably in the forecast period owing to rise in the number of cosmetic surgeries.
