While Ethicon Endo-Surgery and Allergan Remain Front-Runners in the $41 Million Gastric Band Market, Other Competitors Battle for Third Place, According to Millennium Research Group
Date:9/28/2010

TORONTO, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Millennium Research Group (MRG), the global authority on medical technology market intelligence, the European gastric band device market was valued at $41 million in 2010, with revenues doubling by the end of 2015.  Increased awareness of health issues surrounding obesity, coupled with an expanding patient pool tied to rising European obesity rates, will drive significant growth in the gastric band market through 2015.
