Demanded overview of electrosurgical devices market

Electrosurgery is a technique used in surgery to quickly dissect soft tissue and reduce bleeding. The electrical resistance of these soft tissues to an electromagnetic current produces heat. The power, waveform, and surgical method utilized in electrosurgery all impact the endpoints. The various tools used in electrosurgery are referred to as electrosurgery devices.

In 2021, the market value of electrosurgical devices was USD 3.18 billion, and by 2030 it will be worth USD 5.25 billion, at a 5.73% CAGR during the forecast period. 

The expansion of the electrosurgery devices market is driven by factors such as an enormous geriatric population, the growing rate of chronic diseases, and technological advancements. On the other side, the government’s strict regulatory frameworks for product approval may limit the industry’s growth. Nonetheless, the market for electrosurgery devices will have favorable growth due to the strong market potential in emerging nations.

Market Dynamics


Due to the increased incidence of chronic conditions like heart failure and stroke caused by genetics, aging, obesity, and bad lifestyle choices, the market for electrosurgical devices is experiencing a growth in market revenue. The World Health Organization (WHO) (2021) estimates that in 2019 cardiovascular disease (CVDs) was the prominent cause of death worldwide. According to estimates, 17.9 million deaths worldwide in 2019 were attributable to CVDs, or 32% of all fatalities. The majority of cardiovascular diseases are managed surgically.

Therefore, the prevalence of various chronic diseases will increase along with the number of surgeries, such as open heart surgeries and cosmetic surgeries, and this will lead to a rise in the demand for electrosurgical devices.


The lack of experienced workers in the healthcare industry and the strict regulatory requirements involved with the approval of electrosurgical devices will both limit the market’s growth.


Emerging markets with high development potential offer the industry lucrative growth prospects. Moreover, complex, high-tech equipment with high precision and dependability is needed for surgical procedures, including cranial surgery, spine surgery, and neurological surgery, among many others. These operations thereby increase demand and encourage market growth.
