Growing Demand for Surgical Devices
According to data from World Population Prospects: the 2019 Revision, by 2050, one in six people in the world will be over age 65 (16%), up from one in eleven in 2019 (9%). This significant increase in the growing ageing population worldwide is also accompanied by an increasing prevalence and incidence of chronic diseases. With early screening and detection of these diseases, this has led to a rising number of surgical procedures, which has naturally driven up demand for surgical instruments.
