Driver: Increasing number of surgical procedures

The number of surgical procedures performed has increased over the years due to the increasing prevalence of various diseases and growth in the geriatric population. Based on the data published by the WHO, the volume of surgical procedures performed worldwide is projected to reach 400 million by 2020 from 300 million in 2012. According to the United Nations, the population of individuals aged 60 and over is expected to grow by 56%—from 901 million in 2015 to 1.4 billion by 2030; by 2050, this population group is projected to double in size, reaching nearly 2.1 billion.

The geriatric population is at a higher risk of chronic diseases as well as orthopedic disorders. Thus, growth in this population segment and the subsequent increase in the number of surgical procedures performed is expected to drive the demand for temperature management systems.
