Non-invasive body contouring treatments are primarily achieved utilizing lasers and energy devices as well as other modalities that apply vacuum, suction, or cooling technologies. These innovations are driving a shift from more invasive surgical procedures, such as mechanical liposuction, to less invasive procedures, such as fat freezing, which produce superior results with less downtime. Non-invasive applications in body contouring and sculpting offer benefits over traditional liposuction in terms of reduced patient downtime, elimination of cannula scarring, and improved efficacy.
The global body contouring devices market can be segmented on the basis of energy used, end-user, and region. On the basis of energy used, the non-invasive body contouring devices market can be divided into radiofrequency, ultrasound, mechanical suction, mechanical suction and thermal, cryolipolysis, laser, and others. In terms of end-user, the non-invasive body contouring devices market can be classified into hospitals, cosmetic surgery centers, and others. Based on region, the global non-invasive body contouring devices market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
Growth in obesity globally is likely to drive the demand for non-invasive body contouring applications and treatments. According to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) in 2015, around 88% of the people is concerned with excess weight. Patients want results, but without the pain and downtime that are associated with surgery. Increasing consumer demand for non-invasive treatment options as alternatives to mechanical liposuction and bariatric surgery is expected to continue to drive the non-invasive body contouring devices market during the forecast period. Moreover, non-invasive body contouring treatments require minimal recovery time, short downtime, and do not involve any incision. These therapies are gaining popularity against the traditional modalities. Such shift in consumer preference is likely to contribute to the continued growth of the non-invasive body contouring devices market during the forecast period.
Non-invasive devices, such as, lasers and energy-based devices provide more efficient and safer alternatives to traditional liposuction surgery procedures. Less-stringent regulatory pathway enjoyed by laser and energy devices than by segments, such as, implants is an additional non-invasive body contouring devices market driver. As most of the laser and energy devices use well-studied and understood technologies (e.g. ultrasonic waves) with a long history of use in medical devices, safety testing for these products is well-established. In addition, the fact that these products are typically used on the surface of the body limits their ability to cause systemic harm with typical side-effects are limited to the site of application.
Geographically, North America accounts for the leading share of the global non-invasive body contouring devices market, in terms of revenue, followed by Europe. Although emerging countries, such as, China, South Korea, Brazil, and India are expected to grow significantly during the next five years, the non-invasive body contouring devices market is projected to continue to be dominated by North America and Europe throughout the forecast period. Dominance of North America in the global non-invasive body contouring devices market can be attributed to the high disposable income of people, concentration of non-invasive body contouring devices market players, well-developed health care infrastructure, and high awareness about latest medical development in the region.
The non-invasive body contouring devices market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a significant rate due to increasing penetration of market players operating in the aesthetic industry in emerging countries, such as, China and India and rise in consumer awareness about body contouring treatment in the region. Other regions, such as, Middle East & Africa and Latin America are expected to be prospective markets for non-invasive body contouring devices in the near future due to the high adoption rate of advanced therapeutics, coupled with the rapidly developing health care industry in the regions.
Major players operating in the global non-invasive body contouring devices market include Cynosure, Inc., Syneron Medical Ltd., Venus Concept, Fosun Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Allergan plc, Cutera, Inc., Mentor Worldwide LLC, and Merz Pharma GmbH & Co,
