Market Overview

India's Bariatric Surgery Devices Market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. Bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery is used as one of the major treatment procedures for treating obesity. It is generally the last option for patients who have failed in the attempt of losing weight.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an increase in obesity among Indian people, mostly those who used to go to the office or have fieldwork. This is mainly due to the implementation of work-from-home for most industries. Owing to the lockdown measures across the globe, people were unable to stay active physically which led to rising obesity/weight gain. However, due to the halt on non-emergency procedures during the pandemic, the number of bariatric surgeries performed in the country reduced drastically which indicates the negative impact on the market studied. Moreover, to cope with increasing obesity in the country as a result of COVID-19, the National Institute of Nutrition (NIN), India planned to monitor the rising obesity closely across all states and to create awareness about obesity. As per the article published in August 2021 titled, 'Double trouble: a pandemic of obesity and COVID-19', given how severely the COVID-19 pandemic's second wave has affected India. In this wave, deaths due to COVID-19 reached millions. However, the same article has stated that the country is showing significant progress to cope with the obesity burden which is believed to fuel the market growth.

In addition, as per the National Family Health Survey-5 (NFHS-5) conducted in India, every one in four men or women is obese in the country. At the national level, obesity has surged from 21% to 24% among women and from 19% to 23% among males in the last four years. The survey report further states that both men and women in rural areas are thinner than those in cities. Urban areas have a higher percentage of obese people (33%) than rural ones. Additionally, as household wealth is on the rise in India, the percentage of overweight or obese people is rising steadily. This rising burden of obesity in the country coupled with the increasing advanced in hospital systems across the country is expected to propel the demand for advanced treatment for obesity such as bariatric surgeries.

However, currently, the high cost associated with bariatric surgery is hindering the market growth as a large group of the population in India consists of low-to-middle-income.
