Electrosurgical Devices Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Electrosurgical devices use high-frequency alternating polarity, electrical current during surgical procedures to coagulate, desiccate, cut or fulgurate the tissues. Electrosurgical devices renders nontoxic and inexpensive surgeries, with early recovery and minimum chances of infection after the surgery. The devices contribute a substantial portion of total device sales in the market due to the requirement for specialized instruments and high application of single-use instruments like arthroscopic probes and other specialized systems.

The minimal invasive surgeries drives the growth of electrosurgical devices market

According to The World Health Organization’s estimates in 2008, the global geriatric population is projected to reach around 2 billion by 2050, from 524 million in 2010. The geriatric population is prone to diseases like cancer, cardiac arrest, gastrointestinal and intestinal diseases due to weak immunity. The growing demand for minimally non-invasive surgeries and increase in adoption of technologically advanced products are driving the market growth. Growing awareness in the most recent surgical techniques is expected to ensure swift growth of the global market in developing countries. Factors such as technological advancements in electro surgery devices, increase in ambulatory surgeries, growing number of medical, aesthetic and plastic surgeries, substantial expenditure in healthcare by government reforms are driving the growth of this market.

Development of multimodality systems is a trending strategy in the electrosurgical devices market

The launch of Argon Plasma Coagulation (APC) applicator in 2016 with additional electro-surgical functions like integrated filter, instrument recognition with preset start settings based on user experience offers additional operating convenience.  The device works for coagulation and vessel cutting and shows applications in open surgery and laparoscopy. Also, the development of innovative multimodality systems such as robotic surgical systems is a trending strategy in the market as it makes surgical procedures more precise and easy.
