Global Laparoscopic Appendectomy Market - 2021-2028
The laparoscopic appendectomy market size was valued at US$ XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
A laparoscopic or “lap” appendectomy is a minimally invasive surgery to remove the appendix through several small incisions, rather than through one large one. Recovery time from the lap appendectomy is short.
The major factors driving the growth of this market are the increasing incidence rate of appendicitis.Awareness and recent developments in the technology will drive the market growth in forecast period.
The increasing incidence rate of appendicitis is driving the market growth
Appendicitis is a common occurrence in both the adult and pediatric populations. The condition most commonly occurs between the ages of 10 and 20 years with a lifetime risk of 8.6% and 6.7% for males and females respectively.
The pooled incidence of appendicitis or appendectomy (in per 100,000 person-years) was 100 (95% CI: 91, 110) in Northern America, and the estimated number of cases in 2015 was 378,614. The pooled incidence ranged from 105 in Eastern Europe to 151 in Western Europe.
Awareness and recent developments in the technology will drive the market growth in forecast period
Laparoscopic or “minimally invasive” surgery is a specialized technique for performing surgery. In the past, this technique was commonly used for gynecologic surgery and for gall bladder surgery. Recent development of laparoscopic surgery during the past 30 years, the devices built for the surgery have progressed through technological innovation and the recycling of former technology. CCD camera technology has contributed significantly to the success of the 1st generation of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The growth of modern laparoscopic surgical devices has been largely driven by needs.
The early slow pace of endoscopic and laparoscopic evolution was in large part related to the limitations of technology. The introduction of the computer chip television camera is a key event in the development of laparoscopy, as the procedure can be conducted while viewing a projected image of the abdominal contents. As it provides a better view of the internal structures, this also allowed free movement of the surgeon’s hands, making it easier to perform more complex procedures. Before the development of the camera, this approach was reserved only for diagnostic purposes and a few simple surgical procedures in gynecologic applications.
Single-port laparoscopic surgery (SPLS) is a rapid evolving technique in the field of minimally invasive surgery. Development of innovative articulated or bent instruments, adjustments in laparoscopes, and developed special multilumen access devices allowed simultaneous multiple instruments insertion facilitated the acceptance of this technique. Increasing application of this technique has been described through case reports and case series proving it is a safe and feasible technique for the surgical treatment of benign and malignant diseases expanded within general, urological, gynecological, and pediatric surgery. Recent publications described using SILS for appendectomy, cholecystectomy, colectomy, adrenalectomy, splenectomy, bariatric surgery, hysterectomy, ovarian cystectomy, and hernias repair. The interest for the technique has gradually progressed toward assessing its efficacy compared with established techniques in minimally invasive surgery. Comparative studies with standard and hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery have shown that SPLS maintains the benefits of minimally invasive surgery.
Lack of expertise in the laparoscopic surgeries will hamper the market growth
Laparoscopy is currently considered the gold standard approach for a range of surgical treatments . While these minimally invasive procedures offer significant advantages in patient recovery, they also require complex surgical skills that are difficult for novices to learn and highly vulnerable to error. Moreover, research indicates that 80% of major laparoscopic complications occur early on in a surgeon’s career (often within the first 100 cases), and can lead to disastrous patient outcomes including permanent injury or fatality.
The benefits of laparoscopic surgery are clear but when complications occur, they tend to be serious. Laparoscopic training experiences are highly variable due to limited training resources and lack of a curriculum. Current recommendations include government support and funding to guide development of a standardized curriculum and widen access to training programs for surgeons in rural settings.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
During the first stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a significant increase in the rate of complicated appendicitis. In the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a concern for a delayed referral of patients and thus a more advanced presentation of the disease leading to a prolonged and complicated course.One hundred twenty-three patients underwent laparoscopic appendectomy in the study period in 2020, compared with 109 who had surgery in 2019. During the COVID pandemic 41 patients presented with complicated appendicitis versus 22 patients in 2019.Despite the growing consciousness of the phenomenon, very little attention focused to the effects of the delay in diagnosis and management of surgical diseases. A recent international web survey reported increased non-operative management of Medical Laparoscopic Robots appendicitis during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Medical laparoscopic robots segment will dominate the market in forecast period
Robotic surgery is similar to laparoscopic surgery in the respect that they both use small incisions, a camera and surgical instruments. However, instead of holding and manipulating the surgical instruments his or herself, during robotic surgery, surgeon will sit at a computer console and use controls to manipulate the robot. The console provides the surgeon with high-definition, magnified 3D images, which allow for increased accuracy and vision inside your body. Compared to traditional surgery, robotic surgery provides surgeon with a greater range of motion and precision, which may lead to less bleeding and post-operative pain. In recent years, surgical robots are widely used. Surgical robots are actively being studied all over the world just a few decades after their introduction.
The BITRACK system (Rob Surgical, Barcelona, Spain) offers another robotic alternative to the da Vinci System. The BITRACK system was born of a collaboration between by the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia. The BITRACK system progressed through technical development in 2018 and has begun FDA/CE approval processes with projected availability by 2021.
Hospital segment will dominate the laparoscopic appendectomy market
In most cases an appendectomy is an emergency surgery and will require a hospital stay. The patient may opt either an open appendectomy or a laparoscopic appendectomy. This will depend on the condition and healthcare provider’s practices.
Most patients who need a lap appendectomy enter the hospital through the Emergency Department and are taken to surgery within a few hours. Compared with open appendectomy, laparoscopic appendectomy has the advantages of less postoperative pain, better cosmesis, and shorter hospital stays. Furthermore, laparoscopic surgery probably reduces hospital costs by shortening hospital stay and providing early postoperative recovery. Recently, many efforts have been made to reduce hospital costs, and the topic of shortening hospital stay after appendectomy has attracted some interest, especially in the context of one-day surgery,because hospital stays after appendectomy usually exceed 3 days.The availability of laparoscopic appendectomy procedure in hospitals and its advantages will drive the growth of this segment.
North America will dominate Laparoscopic Appendectomy Market
Availability of technologically advanced medical facilities in North America will drive the market growth is the region.Surge in the incidences of obesity is likely to increase the demand for bariatric surgery by boosting the market of laporsccopy.Increased incidences of appendicitis in North America will also drive the market.
As per research, in 2018, the incidence of Medical Laparoscopic Robots 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. The lifetime risk of appendicitis is 1 in 15 in the United States.
