MEA General Surgical Devices Market Analysis
The Middle East & Africa general surgical devices market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 11.8% during the forecast period.
COVID-19 impacted the global healthcare market, particularly the general surgical devices market in the Middle East and Africa region, as hospital admissions and healthcare services were significantly reduced due to government regulations across the region. For instance, an article published by the South African COVID-19 Surgical Outcomes Study (SACOS) in August 2021 reported a reduction in elective outpatient services and overall surgical procedures due to the increased risk of infections. Such instances resulted in a decreased demand for the surgical devices market initially. However, with the end of COVID-19 and the resumption of services, the market is expected to register significant growth over the studied period.
The factors driving the market growth are rising demand for minimally invasive devices and growing cases of injuries and accidents. The high prevalence of chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity, type 2 diabetes, respiratory diseases, and cancer is increasing in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region countries. These diseases are primarily coupled with the burden of the geriatric population, among others, thus the high incidence of such diseases demands an increase in the adoption of minimally invasive surgical devices in the region.
In September 2021, the International Trade Administration stated that the South African government has initiated certain guidelines for cost-effective and innovative surgical equipment along with advanced surgical technologies, and robot-assisted surgeries to improve outcomes and address skill shortages. Moreover, the source also reported that South Africa is moving toward universal healthcare through a proposed National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme. Through NHI, the government is likely to become the main procurer of health goods and services, as well as invest in the public healthcare system such as medical and surgical devices to improve infrastructure and access.
The growing cases of injuries and accidents in the MENA region are also propelling the demand for surgical procedures, thereby increasing the demand for surgical devices. For instance, in December 2021, South Africa Road Traffic Management Corporation Report stated that 12,545 road accidents were reported in South Africa in the year 2021. Road accidents increased by 0.3% over a year, as reported by the source.
Similarly, another article published by the journal Open UCT, in April 2021, reported that the trauma department of Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH), in South Africa reported a high incidence of accidents in the country, which included spinal, orthopedic, and other injuries. Due to the rising cases of accidents reported in the country, the demand for general surgical devices is significantly increasing in the country.
On the other hand, stringent government regulations and improper reimbursement for surgical devices may slow down the growth over the studied period.

MEA General Surgical Devices Market Trends
This section covers the major market trends shaping the MEA General Surgical Devices Market according to our research experts:
Handheld Devices are Expected to Witness Significant Growth over the Forecast Period
Handheld surgical devices are becoming increasingly advanced. The development of advanced devices, like robotic hand-held surgical devices for laparoscopic interventions, enhances a surgeon’s dexterity. Many innovations have been made due to the need for high reliability, accuracy, and patient safety. Needle holders are very similar in shape to hemostats, featuring jaws and handles. Needle holders allow the needle to be locked into place for suturing in various tissue types. Surgical operations demand surgeons to engage in hand-intensive activities, including suturing frequently. The market is growing due to the increase in minimally invasive surgical procedures and outpatient surgeries.
The increase in neurosurgical procedures, ophthalmology, and other surgeries, is also propelling the demand for handheld surgical devices, thereby driving the growth of this segment. For instance, an article published by the Journal of Neurosurgery in August 2022 reported that approximately 1.3 billion people in Africa undergo neurosurgical procedures, with North Africa having 64.39% of the neurosurgical workforce followed by Southern Africa with 12.66%, and Central Africa with 3.09% neurosurgical procedures.
Further technological advancements and new product launches are also contributing to the growth of this segment. In February 2022, Karl Storz became the newest company to join the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Africa Medical Equipment Facility. Karl Storz's participation in the Africa Medical Equipment Facility (AMEF) is to provide support to smaller healthcare businesses in East and West Africa to purchase or lease medical equipment and handheld surgical devices.

South Africa is Expected to Hold A Significant Share of the Market Over the Forecast Period
South Africa is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period due to the increase in surgical procedures and healthcare expenditure. Also, the aging population and long-term chronic disease conditions associated with aging are increasing the demand for surgical devices, which is the major factor driving the growth of the studied market in South Africa. For instance, in September 2021, WHO reported approximately 48 million individuals aged 65 and older in South Africa. The geriatric population is more prone to infections, heart diseases, chronic diseases, and other neurological disorders, which constantly demand surgical devices.
Furthermore, new product launches, the presence of key market players, mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships are fueling the growth of this market in South Africa. For instance, in October 2022, Olympus Corporation launched THUNDERBEAT Open Fine Jaw Type X surgical energy devices for open surgery in South Africa. THUNDERBEAT Open Fine Jaw Type X is a new thermal shield, a surgical energy device designed to support safer procedures.
Similarly, in July 2022, Tygerberg Public Hospital, Capetown, South Africa, used the da Vinci Xi robot to assist in removing a cancerous tumor from a female patient. It is the only robot used in South Africa. This, platform is currently used for complex urological, gynecological, and colorectal surgical procedures in the hospital. Such technologically advanced products are contributing to the growth of the studied market in the country.
