Device-based options that provide anatomic solutions with low physiologic and safety risks represent the best opportunity to achieve these two goals at present. Artificial fullness implants, restrictive devices, intra-oral devices, malabsorption sleeves, and gastric emptying devices--all of which are reversible--are among the variety of solutions designed to meet specific patient needs. Their uptake will be expedited by a growing private-pay market, which will itself be driven by the growing number of bariatric clinics that offer multiple treatment choices, supported by nutritional and monitoring support. The result will be a rapidly expanding, multi-billion dollar global market for obesity management procedures and technologies that will be shaped by ease-of-use and long-term clinical outcomes.
These are among the findings of this new, data-intensive report published by Health Research International and distributed exclusively by Life Science Intelligence. The report provides "must have" econometric market models and analysis of the trends and emerging technologies impacting the global obesity management market through 2018. It covers ten procedure categories and seven major technology markets for five geographies, and it profiles 43 companies innovating within this space. Because many of the technologies lack long-term outcomes, the report forecasts fairly marginal penetration of the total addressable market. Nevertheless, this translates into a projected increase of 21.9% annually through 2018 and several billion dollars in revenues, based on the magnitude of the global obesity epidemic.
