Of the various regions, North America leads the pack and is expected to reap vast lucrative gains from the prospectively burgeoning demand for breast surgery retractors over the forecast period.
Rising Number of Minimally-Invasive Procedures in Developing and Developed World boosting Market
The rising worldwide incidence of breast cancer, especially in developed nations, and its substantial mortality, particularly in developing worlds, is a crucial factor propelling the demand for breast surgeries. This, in turn, is driving the demand for better surgical instruments such as breast surgery retractors. The rising demand for minimally-invasive procedures in breast cosmetic surgeries is fueling the demand for breast surgery retractors. The rising awareness of the risks of breast cancer in women has also led to a substantial rise in procedures such as mastectomy and lumpectomy, which is boosting the market.
The rising number of breast augmentation procedures and implant-based breast reconstruction surgeries among women world over is a notable factor accentuating the demand for breast surgery retractors. This is in large part motivated by the rising awareness about breast aesthetics among women in various parts of the world.
Advent of Novel Products to improve Surgical Outcomes expand Market Prospects
A growing number of medical device makers are focusing on research and product activities to launch novel products that are more precise and can improve surgical outcomes. This is opening promising avenues for market players. The growing demand for retractors that enable surgeons to get maximal exposure of the point of surgical dissection is a case in point. Moreover, the advent of advanced devices for improving the outcomes of breast augmentation and their rising application in minimally-invasive aesthetic surgeries are catalyzing the market growth.
Furthermore, industry efforts to incorporate better device materials, such as polymer-based retractors replacing stainless steel types, is a notable factor paving way for potentially lucrative prospects in the market.
