Obesity is a chronic metabolic and genetic disease involving accumulation of excessive or abnormal fat in the body. Obesity surgeries decrease the size of the stomach, in order to limit the amount of food it can hold. This limits the quantity of food patients can ingest, leading to drastic weight loss. It has a beneficial effect on many medical conditions such as acid reflux, low back pain, diabetes, sleep apnea, hypertension, acid reflux, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and urinary stress incontinence. Increasing prevalence of obesity among children and adults is posing a threat in both developed and developing nations. Obesity has a major impact on population longevity and health-related expenses. Obesity surgeries result in 40% to 80% loss of excess weight after two to three years, depending on the obesity surgery procedure.

North America is facing serious public health issues due to rising obesity in the country. The U.S. accounted for 13% of obese persons worldwide in 2013. Obesity is a major public health challenge in Europe. Approximately, 52% of the population in the European Union was obese or overweight in 2010. Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in many countries in Asia Pacific. South East Asia and Western Pacific regions are facing an epidemic of obesity-associated diseases such as cardiovascular disorders and diabetes. Some of the leading factors leading to obesity in the region are sedentary lifestyle, lack of awareness and cultural attitude.

Increasing obesity epidemic and change in lifestyle are driving growth for obesity surgery devices market. Changes in nature of work, leisure time activities and food habits are the most significant contributing factors to the drastic increase of obesity in the world. In addition, increased medical tourism promotes obesity surgeries, as price is considered to be an important factor when it comes to obesity surgery. However, the selective nature of the surgery, long-term and short-term complications undergoing surgeries and limited insurance coverage restricts growth for the obesity surgery devices market. Obesity surgery is also not recommended for anyone suffering from serious illnesses such as cancer, liver diseases, cardiac, pulmonary and renal insufficiency. In addition, inadequate insurance coverage for the procedure and excessive cost of surgery often makes it unaffordable.
