San Jose, California (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – A global health crisis, obesity is reaching pandemic proportions in both developed and developing countries alike. Rising income levels, increasing affluence, changing lifestyles and dietary habits, growing preference for processed food, and sedentary lifestyles present key factors fuelling the increase in obesity. Though not regarded a disease by itself, obesity is known to increase the risk of chronic health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular risks as well as cancer. The condition is also known to significantly enhance the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, cancer, obstructive sleep apnea, heart disease, and chronic musculoskeletal problems, among others. Surgical intervention as a means to treat obesity is gaining in popularity, particularly for morbidly obese patients. Government focus on reducing costs associated with obesity-related healthcare is also benefiting the acceptance bariatric surgeries. Increasing availability of clinical data supporting the safety of bariatric surgical procedures and their long-term efficacy in reducing weight and minimizing risk of co-morbidities, is helping drive patient acceptance of bariatric surgical treatment.

As stated by the new market research report on Bariatric (Obesity) Surgical Devices, the United States represents the largest regional market worldwide supported by a large base of obese population and easy availability and access to advanced healthcare services. Developing economies present strong opportunities for future growth led by growing number of overweight people, increasing prevalence of diabetes, improving healthcare infrastructure, and increased per capita healthcare spends. Led by China and India, Asia-Pacific is forecast to record the fastest CAGR of 12.5% over the analysis period.

Bariatric surgical procedures involve use of an implantable gastric band or an intragastric balloon to reduce the size of the stomach to limit food intake. Gastric bypass, also known as stomach stapling, is the most common procedure for obesity treatment. Gastric bands offer the flexibility of future adjustments to control the amount of food being consumed. Rising popularity of new alternate surgical procedures and lack of evidence supporting the long-term effectiveness of the treatment are however challenging growth of gastric banding procedures. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass are rapidly growing at the expense of banding procedures.

Major players covered in the report include Apollo Endosurgery Inc., Agency for Medical Innovations GmbH, Bariatric Solutions, Cousin Biotech, Covidien plc, Ethicon Endo-Surgery Inc., Helioscopie SA, Médical Innovation Développement, and Silimed Ltda.
