Increase in Obese Population

Among all the countries, the United States has the large percentage of obese children and young adults, around 13%. As the prevalence of obesity is increasing worldwide, the overall bariatric surgeries are expected to increase, which will directly propel the bariatric surgery devices market. The other factors, such as the prevalence of diabetes, insurance coverage for the surgeries, and government initiatives, are driving the market.

High Cost of Surgery

The high cost of the surgery is due to pre- and post-surgery fees. Cost depends on the surgery type, which may range between USD 15,000-35,000. The most expensive among the surgeries is the duodenal switch surgery, which costs about USD 27,000. The gastric sleeve surgery, which is highly recommended, costs about USD 19,000.
