Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a class of bariatrics, which refers to a minimally-invasive surgical procedure performed on people suffering from obesity. Bariatric surgery aims to reduce the weight of an individual with the help of a surgery that reduces the size of stomach by removing a portion of tissues or fats of the stomach. The National Institutes of Health in the U.S. suggests a person to undergo bariatric surgery depending on the BMI of the individual. Bariatric surgery is recommended to individuals with a minimum BMI of 40 whereas, people with specific serious coexisting medical conditions such as diabetes can also undergo bariatric surgery with a BMI of 35.

According to the World Health Organization, the facts state that worldwide obesity has tripled since 1975. The key facts suggest that in 2016, over 1.9 billion adults were reported to be overweight, out of which 650 million were reported obese. This trend was observed to persist even in children under the age group of 5 years, wherein 40 million children were found to be overweight in 2018. This has predominantly increased the rates at which people are undergoing bariatric surgery, thereby driving the bariatric surgery devices market growth. In addition to this, precaution and preventive measures undertaken by people has resulted in rise of overall expenditure on weight loss, which in turn promotes the global sales of bariatric surgery devices. Moreover, the initiatives taken by regional governments regarding weight assessment and obesity related issues are also positively influencing the bariatric surgery devices market growth.
