Further, ambulatory surgery centers are gaining prominence which is supplementing the market growth of electrosurgery devices.

Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases

With the rising prevalence of chronic diseases globally, the number of surgical procedures has significantly increased over the past couple of decades. Chronic conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and neurological disorders are some of the major public health issues contributing to the growing disease burden. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is the second leading cause of deaths worldwide with nearly 10 million deaths in 2020. Rising geriatric population is another key factor influencing the cancer statistics as older adults are more prone to develop cancer. Similarly, heart diseases also pose a huge economic and health burden on economies. Improved diagnostic capabilities and lifestyle changes have led to a surge in the number of open-heart surgeries and other cardiac procedures performed annually. Neurological disorders including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and stroke have enormous social and financial impacts. The growing number of such procedures along with the higher precision and control provided by advanced electrosurgery devices are propelling their demand across hospitals and Ambulatory Surgical Centers.

Market Challenges: Stringent regulatory framework

The electrosurgical devices market faces several challenges. Strict regulatory frameworks and lengthy approval processes have increased the barriers to entry. Moreover, the need for continued investments in R&D to drive innovation pose financial burdens. Healthcare reforms in several countries have reduced reimbursements to hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers. This has restricted their spending power and affected demand for such high-cost capital equipment. Another major challenge is the presence of alternative treatment options like laser surgeries that offer similar clinical results.

Market Opportunities: Increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures

The rapidly aging global population susceptible to various medical conditions will drive surgical volumes. Moreover, the demand for minimally invasive procedures is growing with advancing technology. This is increasing the acceptance of electrosurgical equipment. There is also scope to expand in emerging markets as their healthcare infrastructure and accessibility improves. Adoption of distribution partnerships and strategic mergers by key market players is further anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for market development over the projected period.

Electrosurgical Devices Market By Product Type

Insights, By Product Type: Product Innovation Fuels Assay Kit Dominance

The product type segment includes electrosurgical instruments, active electrodes, electrosurgical generators, and accessories. The electrosurgical generators segment is anticipated to hold 31.8% of the market share in 2024. Electrosurgical generators are computer-controlled power units that provide radiofrequency electrical current to electrosurgical devices, enabling both monopolar and bipolar electrosurgery. They serve as the central power source needed to conduct any electrosurgical procedure, controlling critical factors such as voltage, current, waveform, and duty cycle. This precise modulation of electrical energy allows surgeons to blend cutting and coagulation effects for optimal tissue effects. Generators enable gentle tissue cutting with sharp borders and reliable hemostasis, minimizing blood loss and postoperative complications. Their computerized controls give surgeons pinpoint precision over each stage of an operation. This level of control is a key driver of generator usage, as it increases surgical accuracy, efficiency and safety compared to older electrosurgery methods.

Insights, By Application: Rising Prevalence of Neurological Disorders

The application segment includes general surgery, gynecology, cardiology, neurology, dermatology, orthopedic surgery, and others. Neurology contributes the highest share of the electrosurgical devices market and is projected to hold 25.6% of the market share in 2024. Neurological surgery often requires both delicate tissue handling and precision hemostasis to avoid complications. Electrosurgery addresses both needs through technological advancements. New electrosurgical generators and instruments deliver micro-currents, allowing for remarkably fine tissue effects via minimal thermal spread. Simultaneous cutting and coagulation also help reduce operative blood loss which can obscure visibility in the highly specialized cranial field. Bipolar coagulation is especially important for hemostasis of cerebral cortexes and venous sinuses. Rising numbers of tumor resections, awake brain surgeries, and minimally invasive endoscopic procedures for conditions like hydrocephalus and epilepsy also fuel neurosurgical electrosurgery demand. As the aging population drives increased incidence of neurodegenerative diseases, electrosurgery innovation will continue enabling less invasive interventions for improved patient outcomes.

Insights, By End User: High footfall in hospitals for surgeries

The end user segment includes hospitals, specialty clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, and others. Hospitals contribute the highest share of the electrosurgical devices market and is projected to hold 39.6% of the market share in 2024. Hospitals cater to a large patient pool and conduct a wide range of surgeries requiring electrosurgical equipment. As the world population ages and lifestyle diseases increase, there is a growing burden of chronic and complex conditions that often require surgical interventions. Even relatively common procedures such as hernia and gallbladder removal account for millions of surgeries annually performed in hospitals. The availability of state-of-the-art operation theatres, high tolerance for technology, and well-trained medical staff allow hospitals to perform complex operations effectively with electrosurgical devices. These devices offer high precision and control over bleedings compared to conventional surgical methods. They help reduce surgical time, lower post-operative complications, and boost recovery. This has raised their adoption across major surgical specialties in hospitals.
