"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global cosmetic surgery market size was valued at USD 53.79 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow from USD 55.65 billion in 2022 to USD 71.93 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -17.8% in 2020 as compared to 2019. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with cosmetic surgery experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels.
The growing popularity of cosmetic procedures among the general population to improve their aesthetic appearance is increasing each year. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of dermatology conditions and the presence of a large patient pool requiring treatment are growing the need and demand for such procedures in the market.
However, the availability of innovative technologies and devices for treating dermatology conditions and improving reimbursement policies for cosmetic procedures fuel the number of patients undergoing cosmetic surgery. Furthermore, the population preferring easy, pain-free methods for appearing youthful and healthy without complications is increasing the demand for non-surgical procedures.
Additionally, key cosmetic surgery players are focusing on new product development and receiving approvals to strengthen their market position. For example, in June 2020, Cynosure launched the Elite iQ aesthetic workstation for laser hair removal and skin revitalization in the U.S., Europe, and Australia. This launch reinforced the company’s position in the developed market.
Furthermore, growing demand for medical tourism, where people travel from other countries for various cosmetic procedures, and the emergence of new cosmetic clinics is further fueling the cosmetic surgery market growth during the forecast period.
Declining Number of Cosmetic Procedures during the COVID-19 Pandemic
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in reduced demand for various cosmetic procedures worldwide. The various countries' governments had instructed to postpone elective and non-essential surgeries to reallocate their healthcare resources to manage COVID-19. The stoppage of elective surgical procedures and the disruption of the supply chain for required material during the pandemic led to decreased cosmetic procedures.
Due to the slowdown of elective surgical procedures in 2020, the total number of cosmetic surgical procedures performed decreased compared to the previous year. This factor affected the sales of the products, and various key players reported a decline in their product sales. For example, Bausch Health Companies Inc., reported a 6.7% decline in total revenue during 2020, while its ortho dermatologic segment reported a decline of 3.0% during 2020.
The ease of lockdown restrictions, increasing demand for home care settings procedures, and focusing on introducing advanced products to meet the demand are expected to drive the market from 2022-2029.
