Report Overview

The global surgical ENT devices market size was valued at USD 7.2 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.77% from 2023 to 2030. The increasing prevalence of ENT disorders, technological advancements in surgical ENT devices, and increasing demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures are factors likely to propel the market growth during the forecast period. In addition to the aforementioned factors, measures to increase the adoption of cochlear implants can affect the market growth positively.

U.S. surgical ENT devices market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

As per the WHO, 5% of the global population suffers from hearing loss, which is nearly 432 million adults and 34 million children. By 2050, 2.5 billion people are expected to suffer from hearing loss, of which 700 million will require a hearing aid or surgery, increasing the demand for cochlear implant devices. Tonsillitis is another prevalent ENT disorder. According to the latest report by PubMed, 600 million people worldwide have tonsilitis, wherein the prevalence of the disorder is highest in children and requires surgery. The growing prevalence of ENT disorders that require surgery is increasing the demand for ENT surgical devices.

Over the past decade, there has been rapid advancement in healthcare technologies, including surgical devices for otorhinolaryngology. Electromagnetic image-guided surgery systems and Fusion ENT navigation are two of the key trending technologies, offering high accuracy, ease of use, and expandability. Robotic surgery is one of the major technological advancements transforming ENT surgeries. Robotic surgical devices are making surgery minimally invasive by offering the advantage of ED-enhanced visualization. Rapid advancements in technology are boosting the demand for advanced surgical devices for better patient outcomes.

COVID-19 surgical ENT devices market impact: 4.48% increase from 2020 to 2021

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

ENT surgeons had the highest risk of COVID-19 infection as they typically performed surgeries on areas directly related to the disease. According to a report by the European Annals of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Diseases, the number of ENT surgeries declined by 84% during the initial months of the pandemic, resulting in a decrease in demand for ENT surgical devices. Providers of ENT surgical devices, therefore, faced large financial losses.

The resumption of elective procedures and gradual increase to reach the pre-pandemic surgical volume are expected to increase product demand and reduce revenue losses suffered by medical care providers and manufacturers.

Till the end of June, market conditions varied greatly across regions, with surgery volumes recovering quickly in the U.S., China, Germany, and Australia and more slowly in Spain, the U.K., and Italy. Surgeries across most emerging markets, including Latin America and India, have remained very low as COVID‐19 cases continue to grow.

Technological advancements and rapid adoption in the later phases of the pandemic are resulting in the implementation of better solutions for minimally invasive and safe surgeries. Advanced surgeries using robotic assistance are showing increased demand.

Product Insights

In the current scenario, merger and acquisition activity in the ENT devices sector has reduced significantly. There have been several deals as market players boost their technical capabilities. For instance, in January 2021, Olympus Corporation and Hitachi Ltd. announced a 5-year contract agreement to jointly develop Endoscopic Ultrasound Systems (EUS). In October 2020, Starkey and OrCam Technologies announced a partnership in assistive technology solutions. The partnership will deliver a single solution to people who have both vision and hearing loss by combining wearable OrCam MyEye devices with Livio Edge AI hearing aids via a wireless connection.

The radiofrequency handpieces segment held the largest revenue share of over 22.6% in 2022. These are medical devices, which coupled with pre-existing legacy RF signal generator systems, provide certain precision-controlled radiofrequency therapies and treatments for ear, nose, and throat. For instance, the handpiece from Ellman International, Inc. is designed to fit comfortably in an operator’s hand, therefore, maximizing productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort. It is easy to use and can be used across fields of ENT surgery.

Surgical ENT devices are mainly used for treating, diagnosing, or conducting surgeries for disorders of the ear, nose, and throat. These devices help in treating issues related to snoring, speaking, hearing, or smell, and a broad range of surgical ENT devices is available in the market. Growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries and the increasing prevalence of ENT disorders are expected to impel market growth in the coming years.

The sinus balloon dilation devices market is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 6.0 % during the forecast period. Applications of dilation devices in providing ease of treating prevalent ENT conditions such as Sinusitis are expected to majorly contribute to the demand for these devices. However, the shortage of skilled ENT surgeons and otolaryngologists is a major challenge to the growth of the market.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2022 with a revenue share of over 36.4%. Major factors contributing to the growth of this region are the growing geriatric population and the increasing prevalence of hearing loss. The presence of key manufacturers, such as Medtronic and Stryker, in the region, plays a major role in the easy availability of devices locally. In the region, Canada is expected to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period due to factors such as the increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness remarkable growth at a CAGR of 5.91% during the forecast period. The market is expected to grow due to the large patient population, increasing adoption of cochlear implants, and rising awareness regarding available treatments. In the MEA, countries such as the UAE and South Africa have better infrastructure for ENT surgeries as compared to other nations in the region, which is expected to boost the market growth.

Global surgical ENT devices market share, by region, 2021 (%)

Asia Pacific is expected to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period due to factors, such as the large patient population and developments in healthcare infrastructure, leading to high demand for ENT surgeries and associated devices. The region is majorly driven by China and Japan. Japan dominated the overall surgical ENT devices market in Asia Pacific region. This can be attributed to a large geriatric population. India is anticipated to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period in the Asia Pacific region.
