Rising disposable income in Asia and increasing number of women in the Asian workforce is expected to propel the growth in demand for breast implants during the projected period

Reconstructive breast surgery is usually performed in order to treat structures of the body affected functionally. Breast reconstruction after mastectomy is generally covered under Medicare resulting in the rise in a number of breast reconstruction procedures worldwide. The rise in annual disposable income per capita of women in Asian countries is creating a positive impact on the cosmetic surgery segment of the Asian breast implants market. Socio-economic status is a prime factor creating higher demand for breast implants in Asian women. The primary customer base for breast implant procedures are women belonging to middle and high-income families.

Additionally, a significant rise in the world’s middle-class population over the next few years, resulting in an increase in purchasing power and discretionary spending are indicative of the stability and growth of the cosmetic surgery segment worldwide. Breast cancer is a leading cause of mortality worldwide particularly in less developed countries, mainly attributed to shifting lifestyles and unavailability of adequate healthcare infrastructure coupled with less penetration of clinical advancements to combat the disease. Rising prevalence of breast cancer is a major factor contributing to the revenue growth of the cosmetic and reconstructive surgery segments across the globe.

A large number of women are conscious about the physical appearance of their breasts leading to increasing number of breast augmentation procedures in developed countries such as China and Indonesia. However, some of the most common reasons for breast augmentation procedures include changing the breast size, restoring the natural appearance of the breasts, and correcting capsular contracture. This factor is likely to create robust development in the cosmetic surgery segment over the projected period.
