Increasing Number of Surgical Procedures Contribute Significantly to Market Growth

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), stroke, and kidney diseases is expected to have a positive impact on the number of surgical procedures across the globe. As per the WHO, CVDs are the leading cause of mortality, and they result in the deaths of ~17.9 million people every year across the world. Moreover, as per the International Diabetes Federation’s Diabetes Atlas Ninth edition 2019, about 463 million adults (aged 20–79 years) had diabetes in 2019, and the number is expected to reach 700 million by 2045. Such high prevalence of chronic conditions is expected to drive the number of surgical procedures, which will ultimately boost the growth of the surgical smart glasses market. For instance, according to the data published by the Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society of India in 2020, the number of bariatric surgeries in India increased by around 86.7% during 2014–2018 in India. In addition, according to the study published by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, in 2019, around 252,000 weight loss surgeries were performed in the US.

The increasing emphasis on achieving improved treatment outcomes is actively contributing to the growth of the surgical smart glasses market. There is high possibility of the occurrence of adverse effects of many surgical procedures, which might as well lead to mortality. Therefore, in crucial cases, it becomes very essential to utilize advanced equipment to avoid possible ill-effects. According to a study published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2019, unsafe medical care causes ~2.6 million deaths each year in the low- and middle-income countries. Such significant extent of lethality is anticipated to boost the adoption of advanced computing devices, which will eventually bolster the growth of surgical smart glasses market during the forecast period.
