Report Overview

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.

U.K. eyelid surgery Market size

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 the puffiness of the eyes. Thus, increasing the incidence of such conditions is propelling demand for eyelid surgery, thereby driving growth.

Moreover, surgeons are increasingly using non-surgical technologies for eyelid surgery owing to its various advantages over traditional surgical techniques. As compared to conventional surgeries, which consist of surgical procedures, anesthetization, and long recovery time, modern technological procedures overcome these drawbacks. For instance, modern technologies using plasma exeresis methods are cost-effective & non-invasive and have immediate effect. Such technological advancements are expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

The growing prevalence of eye-associated problems, especially in the 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. Besides, the demand for better appearance is also fueling the market growth.

Eyelid problems are highly prevalent in the 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. According to a report by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, approximately 1.3 million individuals globally underwent eyelid surgery in 2017, exhibiting the high demand for the procedure across the globe.

Procedure Type Insights

By procedure type, the global eyelid surgery market is divided into the upper eyelid and lower eyelid surgeries. The 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 the 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 an increasing number of clinics and skilled cosmetic & plastic surgeons and rising preference for blepharoplasty. Moreover, increasing the use of Botox or Dysport by clinic surgeons is propelling the market growth. These injections effectively help raise eyebrows, thereby attracting customers for cosmetic surgeries.

Global eyelid surgery Market share

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

Regional Insights

Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated in 2018 due to the availability of improved facilities and the growing demand for cosmetic surgery from the large millennial and geriatric population. Moreover, the quick adoption of innovative techniques and devices by the region is fueling the market.

The Asia Pacific is expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing aging population, rising demand for cosmetic surgery, and gaining popularity of blepharoplasty as a medical treatment. Besides, a growing number of patients undergoing eyelid surgery in economies such as South Korea & Japan and expanding the cosmetic industry in India & China is expected to fuel growth in the forecast period. The 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 a rise in the number of cosmetic surgeries. For instance, in 2015, Brazil recorded a total of 2,324,245 cosmetic procedures, just behind the U.S. Latin America offers medical surgeries at a relatively lower cost compared to the U.S., thereby increasing medical tourism in this region.
