Japan Bariatric Surgery Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2019 - 2024)

"Market Overview

The increasing potential obese population and preference of people for surgical procedures over non-surgical procedures gives the market a prospective outlook. The prevalence of obesity among children is growing rapidly. In some regions, as many as one in four are affected.

The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) and Sleeve Gastrectomy are the most preferred procedures. Surgical laparoscopy changed the scope of bariatric surgery and made the gastric band surgery an even more appealing option for the surgical management of obesity. In the current scenario, it is observed that obesity is more common among individuals in low socioeconomic groups when compared to other groups. The increasing number of trained surgeons also helps the growth of the market.

Scope of the Report

Bariatric surgery is a medical procedure that aids weight loss by either limiting the capacity of the stomach or the absorption of calories. This is the most effective weight loss therapy available for patients with morbid obesity, and it involves either open or laparoscopic techniques. Bariatric surgery can also prevent obesity-related diseases like diabetes, hypertension, cardiac dysfunction, fatty liver disease, among others. Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB), Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB), Biliopancreatic Diversion with a Duodenal Switch (BPD-DS) are different types of bariatric surgeries. Choosing the right candidate for the right procedure depends on the BMI of the individual and other medical conditions.

Key Market Trends

Stapling Devices capture the largest market share in the overall market

Stomach stapling is a technique used to either section off or seal the part of the stomach that remains after the other portion is removed. Procedures that utilize stapling include Roux-en-Y-Gastric Bypass, Duodenal Switch, and Gastric Sleeve surgery. Stomach stapling should be considered permanent as compared to other methods like lap-banding and gastric ballooning. It tends to result in greater and more consistent weight loss among patients, along with a greater reduction in obesity-related health problems. The procedures like Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) and Vertical Banded Gastroplasty (VBG) are mostly laparoscopic procedures and are most preferred. Thus, the market for staples is expected to show a comparatively high growth as compared to other devices used in bariatric surgeries.

Competitive Landscape

The presence of major market players, such as Allergan, J&J, EnteroMedics, Medtronic, and EndoGastric Solutions intensifies the competition. The rising competitive rivalry among the market players can be attributed to rising innovations and increasing R&D investments by major players.
