In addition to the lucrative (more than $730 million) and steadily growing U.S. thermal ablation medical devices market, nonsurgical energy-based (ablative) aesthetic devices, including laser/light-based and RF-based skin rejuvenation/tightening systems, as well as emerging HIFU and promising new nonsurgical fat reduction technologies such as cryolipolysis, are part of a significantly large, growing market benefiting from an aging population with a high discretionary income and willingness to invest in fast, effective, office-based aesthetic treatments with minimal down time. In 2011, the total estimated U.S. nonsurgical energy-based aesthetic devices market totaled more than $386 million.
Combined, the U.S. thermal ablation devices market-including generators,probes/applicators/instruments/disposables/accessories and service/procedure fees for the treatment areas defined in this report-totaled more than $1.1 billion in 2011. Despite current economic instability, each market segment profiled in this report is expected to increase at moderate to very healthy compound annual growth rates-ranging from 3.3%-17.7%-due to strong demand, cost-efficiency and efficacy, strong reimbursement, emerging unique, proprietary cost-effective, multi-platform next-generation technologies, and an aging population susceptible to various diseases/conditions.
This dynamic report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, markets, competitors, and emerging drugs, technology and opportunities. Covered products in this report include selected specialized energy-based generator systems, medical devices/instruments/accessories for the following minimally invasive or nonsurgical ablation treatment areas: BPH, cancer, chronic venous insufficiency/varicose veins, menorrhagia, and selected aesthetic areas, such as skin rejuvenation/skin tightening and body sculpting/cellulite/targeted fat reduction. Other applications include treatment of spinal denervation, stress urinary incontinence, and uterine fibroids.
