The global market for minimally invasive weight loss devices is expected to grow to $290m by 2021, a CAGR of 16%, driven in large part by the rising obesity epidemic and associated Type 2 diabetes. Meddevicetracker expects that enhancements and innovations, particularly in the growing intragastric balloon market, and emerging technologies by smaller companies, will lead the growth in the overall weight loss devices market. In this feature, we'll take a closer look at the overall market and regional landscape and take a deep dive into the fastest-growing intragastric balloon segment, providing key insights from a bariatric surgeon on the pros and cons of these technologies.
The final five-year results from the STAMPEDE trial, said to be the first randomized controlled trial in the bariatric space, show that bariatric surgery plus intensive medical therapy is more effective than intensive medical therapy alone in combating hyperglycemia in obese patients with type 2 diabetes.
