‘Electrosurgery’ is a term used to describe several modalities that use electricity supply to thermally destruct a tissue by causing dehydration, vaporization or coagulation. An electrosurgical unit consists of a generator along with a handpiece with one or more electrodes attached. The generator can produce variety of electrical waveforms resulting in corresponding tissue effect. It is one of the crucial equipment in majority of operating settings currently and is regarded as most useful tool by the surgeons.

The technique of using heat as a form of therapy and treatment option to stop bleeding has been used for centuries, called as thermal cautery in which tissues were burnt by thermal heat including steam or hot metal aimed at reducing bleeding or destroying the damage tissue. However, as the technology evolved, numerous devices that used electricity as means to heat tissue and control bleeding were developed.  Electrocautery faced drawbacks in case of incapability to coagulate large vessels or tissue efficiently. Further advancement in the electrical field led to use of radiofrequency current to heat living tissue without muscle or nerve stimulation. Further, electrosurgery also called as surgical diathermy was developed by William Bovie in the year 1926. In this method, the electricity was used as an energy source to enable production of electrosurgical unit that offered means to cut, coagulate a human tissue efficiently using the same device, reduced surgery time and minimal blood loss. Presently, technological advancements have led to the development of innovative electrosurgical generators including the Bovie IDS Generator Line equipped with fully digital implementation to suit modern operating room and surgical outpatient unit. Such technological advancements in the field will lead to electrosurgical generators industry growth over the forecast period.

Increasing number of surgeries will escalate the product demand

Growing demand for minimally invasive procedures will act as high impact rendering factor for the market growth. Large pool of geriatric population coupled with increase in occurrence of chronic conditions will further stimulate the market shares. Increasing awareness about the cosmetic procedures helping in reducing ageing effect due to growing obsession about physical appearance will drive the adoption rate of electrosurgery, thereby elevating opportunities for the market size growth over the coming years.

Controlled power output is necessary in the wet fields including gynaecology, arthroscopy and urology that can be achieved through electrosurgical generator will drive the industry growth. Furthermore, avoidance of hospital stays, and extended healing time will lead to rise in electrosurgical generator revenue growth especially in ambulatory surgical centers over the projected timeline.

High adoption of bipolar electrosurgical generators by surgeons will stimulate business growth over the forecast period

Two types of electrosurgical generators include bipolar and monopolar. Bipolar electrosurgical generators dominated the industry in 2018 and is anticipated to grow by 7.9% during the forecast period. Technological advancements along with precise output will drive the segmental growth. Furthermore, less damage to the living tissues and overall improved performance delivered by bipolar devices will positively impact the business growth of bipolar generators market outlook.

Monopolar generators market trends will witness considerable growth over the analysis period owing to several application of this type of generators including blend, cut, desiccation, and fulguration. Additionally, technological advancements in generators will increase overall opportunities for the market growth.

Rising awareness about cosmetic procedures offering anti-ageing effect will boost the market size

Electrosurgical generators have various applications in optical, gynaecology, dermatology, cardiac, dental, ENT, maxillofacial, orthopaedic, urology, neurology and other fields. Growing obsession about physical appearance and ways to look young and pleasant has escalated the demand for aesthetic surgeries that will positively impact the growth of dermatology application segment to reach USD 480.3 million by 2025.  

The gynaecology segment held over USD 105.0 million in 2018 and is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period. Electrosurgery is used to coagulate tissue during the gynaecological procedure. Moreover, it also improves the precision of application to avoid unnecessary tissue injury will drive the gynaecology segment growth over the projected period.

Hospitals accounted for over 34.5% revenue share in the year 2018

By end-use, the electrosurgical generators market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, clinics and others. Hospitals dominated the global industry in 2018 owing to the easy availability of electrosurgical generators and a large number of surgical procedures carried out in the hospital setting.

Ambulatory surgical centers segment will be the fastest growing end-use segment to witness 10.0% CAGR over the analysis period. Growing preference for ambulatory surgical centers to avoid overnight stay post-surgery and increasing number of minimally invasive surgeries will drive the segmental growth. Ambulatory surgical centers offer high-quality treatment at lower prices as compared to surgical treatment offered by private clinics will further add to the market growth over the projected timeframe.
