Increasing Number of Surgeries among the Aging Population
There are numerous imaging technologies and new devices that are being used for the heart and other chronic diseases surgeries, and these surgeries are being performed using the minimally invasive devices and equipment. Minimally invasive procedures also provide better quality of life and with less medical restrictions and associated risks. According to a study, there are around 211 million people in Brazil, out of which, 17.724 million are above 65 and 2.34 million are 80 years and above. The growing prevalence of cardiac diseases, especially among the elderly, has increased the adoption of minimally invasive procedures in Brazil.
However, the growing GDP of the region has resulted in growth in the disposable income, which will drive the minimally invasive surgery market in the future. It is also expected that the growth of geriatric population in Latin America, as healthcare services become affordable and effective, will also drive the minimally invasive surgery market.
Costly Minimally Invasive Surgery Procedures
Minimally invasive procedures are less adopted in Brazil as they are costly. The low- and middle-class people cannot bear the high expenses, which is posing a challenge to improve the quality of treatment through advanced minimally invasive procedures. Robotic surgeries involved in cardiac problems and spinal fusion are some of the high-end minimally invasive treatments, which require high amount of capital. The advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic approaches leads to increased cost of instrumentation and higher operating costs. Therefore, due to the high costs of these procedures, only 50 hospitals in Brazil are currently providing the minimally invasive treatments. Owing to these factors, minimally invasive surgery procedures are facing challenges in Brazil. The shortage of proper skilled labor and stringent regulatory frameworks are also the major challenges faced by the minimally invasive device market.
Brazil to Report Fastest Growth in the Minimally Invasive Surgery Devices Market
Mexico and Brazil, collectively, occupied more than 50% of the total Latin American minimally invasive surgery market in 2013. In addition, during the period of 2014 to 2020, Mexico is expected to show the fastest growth in the minimally invasive surgery market across Latin America. However, the Brazil market is not to be left behind. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Brazil surpassed the US in 2013 in the number of cosmetic surgeries performed in the country, annually; between 2009 and 2012, the number of plastic surgery procedures rose by 120% in Brazil.
