An electrosurgical unit (ESU) is a tool that surgeons use during operations to cut and coagulate tissues. At the end of an active electrode, ESUs produce high-frequency electric current. Tissue gets sliced and coagulated by this current. Using this device throughout various surgical procedures is simple. An electric current heats the tissue during electrosurgical techniques. Electrosurgical devices are used to cut tissue during surgery and to stop bleeding by inducing haemostasis (coagulation) at the surgical site.
Global electrosurgical devices market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6,892.4 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

Global Electrosurgical Devices Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization had declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
With more than 545.9 million cases and more than 6.3 million fatalities so far, the COVID-19 pandemic presents a once-in-a-century challenge to human healthcare. The pandemic had a substantial impact on surgical practice. Every surgical specialty had to prioritize the urgency of their routine surgical procedures and, whenever practical, take non-surgical therapeutic options into account. Working methods, surgical procedures (open vs. minimally invasive), theatre workflow, patient and staff safety, training, and education were all impacted by the epidemic. The pandemic caused a brief worldwide prohibition on elective surgery, which caused elective surgery cancellations everywhere. In a paper released by academics from the CovidSurg Collaborative, it was estimated that during the peak interruption of 12 weeks, around 28 million procedures were postponed worldwide.
Global Electrosurgical Devices Market: Key Developments
In August 2020, Encision Inc., a developer of active electrode monitoring technology that prevents dangerous stray electrosurgical burns in minimally invasive surgery, launched AEM 2X enTouch Scissors, which is an instrument intended for surgical use in cutting, drilling, sawing, scratching, scraping, clamping, retracting, clipping, or similar procedures
In October 2019, Apyx Medical Corporation, which is an energy technology company, received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance to market and sell the Apyx Plasma/RF Handpiece, a new addition to the Renuvion product family.
Global Electrosurgical Devices Market: Restraint
Stringent regulatory requirements for device approvals and product recalls are expected to hinder growth of the global electrosurgical devices market.
Moreover, complications of electrosurgery are also expected to limit the market growth. Electrosurgery is associated with several electro-thermal injuries that may result from its application, insulation failure, direct coupling, capacitive coupling, and other modes.
Major players operating in the global electrosurgical devices market include Bovie Medical Corporation, Medtronic Plc, BOWA-Electronic GmbH & Co. KG, KLS Martin, B.

Electrosurgery is the use of high energy alternating current to increase intracellular temperature to achieve vaporization or combination of desiccation and protein coagulation of biological tissue. Electrosurgical devices find application in general surgery, cardiology, urology, gynecology, cosmetology, and dermatology domains. ESUs generate electric current at high frequency at the end of an active electrode. This current cuts and coagulates tissue.
In endoscopy suites, electrosurgical units (ESU) are essential pieces of equipment. During endoscopic procedures, they generate high frequency, alternating electric current that is used for both cutting and coagulation. The cutting-edge gi4000 Electrosurgery Unit and other compatible electrosurgery tools, including monopolar and argon probes as well as single-use connectors, are all available from STERIS, which is medical equipment company specializing in sterilization and surgical products . Gynecology, urology, laparoscopic and endoscopic surgeries, onco-surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, spine and neuro-surgery, orthopaedic, ophthalmic, ENT, maxillofacial, dental, and other general surgical procedures are just a few of the multidisciplinary surgical procedures that can use electrosurgery. An electrosurgical unit (ESU) consists of a generator and a handpiece with one or more electrodes. The device is controlled using a switch on the handpiece or a foot switch. Electrosurgical generators can produce a variety of electrical waveforms. As these waveforms change, so do the corresponding tissue effects.
Increasing prevalence of cancer is expected drive the market over the forecast period. For instance, according to data published in February 2022, by Americans Cancer Society, stated that in U.S. there were about 236,740 new cases of lung cancer (117,910 in men and 118,830 in women) and about 130,180 deaths from lung cancer (68,820 in men and 61,360 in women) in 2021.
