Market Overview

The major factors for the growth of the South Korean minimally invasive surgery devices market include the rising adoption of minimally invasive surgery in cosmetic surgeries, increase in medical tourism in South Korea, and technological advancements.

Minimally invasive surgeries (MIS) cause less post-operative pain, and hence, patients receive smaller dosages of pain killers. As there are minimal cuts or stitches involved, the hospital stay is relatively shorter, and patients need not visit the hospital frequently. Traditional open surgeries involve long incisions made through the muscles, and these muscles take a considerable amount of time to heal, whereas MIS procedures involve smaller incisions, leading to quicker recovery.

Furthermore, there is a rising technological advancement, which is boosting the overall growth of the market in South Korea. According to the estimates of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), South Korea was ranked fifth in the world, in terms of number of plastic surgeons (2,330) in 2018. Additionally, over the past decade, the surgical approach toward the treatment of thoracic disease has shifted to minimally invasive surgery in South Korea.

Thus, owing to the all aforementioned factors the market is expected to witness healthy CAGR over the forecast period.
