Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Appendicitis Market  

  • High prevalence of appendicitis across the globe is a major factor boosting the market globally. Appendicitis is a global prevailing condition, which has prevalence in developed economies; however, developing countries are witnessing a rise in appendicitis incidences. African countries have lesser incidence of acute appendicitis, as their food intake includes dietary fibers, which lowers the rate of appendicitis. Rising incidence of pediatric appendicitis is a major factor propelling the appendicitis market. As per a research published on Medscape, the average age of pediatric suffering from appendicitis is between 6 years and 10 years. Lymphoid hyperplasia is one of the key reasons for the growing appendicitis indication in this age group. Younger children are estimated to have a higher perforation rate of 50% to 85%.
  • Awareness and faster adoption of diagnostic techniques for appendicitis are others factors propelling the growth of the appendicitis market globally. These techniques are higher in developed economies, such as the U.S. and Europe as compared to developing economies. However, growing awareness about various diagnostic tests for appendicitis is expected to encourage its adoption in emerging economies of Asia and Latin America. Minimally invasive surgeries is another factor driving the demand for surgeries for the appendicitis condition. Blood biomarker have shown promised result in the diagnosis of the appendicitis condition.
  • Difficulty in diagnosis of appendicitis acts as a major restraint for the global appendicitis market. Appendicitis shows an equally important symptom such as other abdominal disease, which makes it difficult for physicians to examine and diagnose this condition. The pain varies with individuals and does not necessarily have typical physical symptoms. In some patients, appendix is located behind colon, liver or pelvis, which is different from general location of appendix. Proficient diagnosis test are available for correct diagnosis of appendicitis.

Adoption of Advanced Solo Single Incision Laparoscopic Appendectomy to Drive Global Appendicitis Market

  • Faster adoption of solo single incision laparoscopic appendectomy (SILA) as compared to conventional single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy is driving the global appendicitis market. This type of advanced laparoscopic appendectomy aims at faster recovery, lesser pain, smaller scar, and provide better patient outcome than the conventional method. This conventional method offers ergonomic challenges and thus, is not preferred. Solo single incision laparoscopic appendectomy incurs lesser healthcare cost as compared to other methods.
  • This minimally invasive surgery is being increasingly adopted by physicians, as it is less painful than other techniques. SILA is performed in several surgeries.

North America to Lead Global Appendicitis Market

  • The global appendicitis market  can be divided into: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • North America is considered the largest market for appendicitis with rising incidences of the appendicitis cases in the region. Increase in appendicitis patient pool is driving the need for minimally invasive surgeries and thus, is boosting the use of the antibiotics used in the appendicitis condition. These factors are fueling the demand for surgeries, and development of advanced medication and surgical instruments. As per research, in the year 2018, the incidence of acute appendicitis in the United States was 10 per 100,000 people. Appendicitis is likely to affect around 7% of the global United States population with an incidence rate of 1.1 cases in 1,000 people every year. Asia Pacific is expected to be a highly lucrative market for appendicitis surgeries. Technological advancements, demand for minimally invasive surgeries for appendicitis, and increase in patient pool are factors driving the global market. Moreover, geriatric population with chronic diseases is expected to suffer from the appendicitis condition, mainly in Japan and China. Moreover, faster adoption of solo single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy in developing countries is anticipated to augment the appendicitis market in the region. Japan is considered to have a higher patient pool suffering from appendicitis condition.  Government policies and adoption of rapid diagnostic tests for appendicitis condition are likely to augment market growth in the region.
