August 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

U.S. Sex Reassignment Surgery Market Growth & Trends

The U.S. sex reassignment surgery market size is expected to reach USD 5.0 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 11.25% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Improving reimbursement scenario and government aids, and growing awareness about transgender surgeries is expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period. The rising awareness plays a crucial role in fostering understanding, acceptance, and support for transgender individuals. Gender-affirming hormone treatment involving the use of estrogen or testosterone plays a significant role in aligning the physical characteristics of transgender individuals with their gender identity.

Furthermore, the market is growing due to favorable government initiatives that provide care and financial aid for surgeries. Subsequently, in June 2021, Secretary Denis McDonough of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced at a pride event in Florida that transgender veterans in the U.S. would now have access to gender-affirming surgeries under the government's health care coverage. Before this, only hormone therapy and mental health services were included under the government's health care coverage. These favorable government initiatives are significant in propelling the expansion of the market.

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the market for sex reassignment surgery in the U.S. Plastic surgeons reported a declining volume of services and procedures due to the pandemic's stringent regulations. Those who conducted cosmetic, gender affirmation, or other elective surgical procedures were primarily affected compared to those who performed craniofacial, reconstructive, and hand surgery. Such COVID-19-related surgical delays affected the market's overall growth during the pandemic. However, as clinics and hospitals around the U.S. have resumed non-emergency services, the demand for sex reassignment surgeries is expected to boost the growth of the market over the forecast period.
