The global breast implants market size was valued at USD 3.27 billion in 2023, and is projected to grow from USD 3.49 billion in 2024 to USD 5.88 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.

Cosmetic surgeries are witnessing a huge surge throughout the world. The demand for these surgeries and aesthetic implants is increasing significantly due to the importance given to physical appearance. Breast augmentation also called breast enlargement or mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure carried out to increase the breast's size using an implant or fat transfer. Many women prefer to undergo breast enlargement to enhance their physical appearance. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation procedures across the world increased by 3.8% during 2020-2021.

High emphasis on physical appearance, especially in the case of celebrities, and the desire to look beautiful are the primary reasons responsible for expanding the market. Moreover, the market is poised to grow owing to the product’s use in breast reconstruction surgery after breast cancer operation.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020, the market experienced a decline in its revenue due to the postponement of non-emergency surgeries. However, in 2021 and 2022, the market experienced growth due to an increase in the number of breast augmentation surgeries.

Breast Implants Market Trends

Demand for Gummy Bear Implants Increased in Recent Years

In recent years, gummy bear implants have gained much attention as compared to other types of implants. These implants have a high degree of crosslinking feature that holds the shape of the implants and prevents wrinkles. Due to this, its acceptance among the female population has increased significantly. It is an important advancement in silicone implants as they are safer than conventional implants.

Gummy bear implants were first approved by the FDA in 2012. Since that year, these implants have been fueling the breast implants market growth as they provide strength and cohesiveness. Also, they offer a more attractive alternative for women as they look more natural.

Apart from this, many plastic surgeons feel that they are more beneficial and suitable for breast reconstruction after mastectomy. It has intensified the research on gummy bear implants and is the primary reason why the demand for them has been increasing.

Moroever, the emergence of under-the-muscle breast enlargement procedure created new opportunities in the market. This type of breast augmentation procedure is minimally invasive in nature and gives more natural results. Such benefits associated with these type of breast augmentation has been fueling their demand globally.

Breast Implants Market Growth Factors

Increasing Prevalence of Breast Cancer to Fuel Need for Breast Implantation Surgeries

Breast cancer occurs in the epithelium of the ducts or lobules of the glandular breast tissues. The cases of breast cancer have been increasing at a significant growth globally.

  • For instance, as per data published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2021, in 2020 around 2.3 million women across the globe were diagnosed with breast cancer. Furthermore, in the five years before 2020, around 7.8 milion women were diagnosed with breast cancer.

The treatment for breast cancer involves breast cancer surgery and radiation therapy. Breast surgery involves either mastectomy (entire breast removal surgery) or lumpectomy (partial mastectomy or breast-conserving surgery). In both cases, the breast structure is deformed and requires breast implantation surgery to reform the breast structure.

The increasing number of breast cancer surgery has fueled the demand for such implantations across the world.

Increasing Market Players’ Emphasis on New Product Launches to Boost Market Growth

Rising awareness regarding breast implants and their efficiency in reforming the breast structure has increased their demand among the female population. Market players have emphasized on the introduction of new implants to meet this demand and increase efficiency.

  • In January 2022, Mentor Worldwide LLC received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its breast implant MENTOR MemoryGel BOOST indicated for women aged 22 and above for breast augmentation.

Moreover, the market players have also been focusing on enhancing the breast implant procedures to make them more efficient.

  • In August 2020, GC Aesthetics announced the launch of a breast delivery device to insert the silicone implants easily with minimal touch.

The above factors are expected to fuel the market's growth during the forecast period.


Limitations Associated With Use of Implants to Restrict Market Growth

Demand for these implants has been increasing significantly across the globe. However, certain limitations are associated with using these implants, which tend to limit the market growth.

One of the prominent factors hindering the market progress is the risk of Breast Implant-associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). Rare in nature, BIA-ALCL is a type of T-cell lymphoma that usually develops around the tissue surrounding the implant. Many products are recalled from the market due to this factor. For example, in September 2019, Allergan, now acquired by AbbVie, Inc., recalled its Natrelle BIOCELL Textured Products from the market. According to the FDA, 573 cases of BIA-ALCL were reported in 2019.

Furthermore, implant ruptures and women's safety concerns have made the government re-evaluate the manufacturers’ products.

The factors above are expected to restrain the market growth.
