Body Contouring – Current and Future Players

Body contouring is an aesthetic treatment option for patients with unwanted fat deposits, cellulite, or skin laxity. With increasing global rates of obesity and high body mass indexes (BMIs), patients are seeking alternatives to traditional diet and exercise to reduce their waistline and achieve their ideal body image. This market is very competitive, with dozens of companies on the international front, and several smaller local companies competing for market share. The non-invasive body contouring market is growing rapidly and is opening the body contouring industry to a much wider group of patients, specifically those who were not interested in elective surgery but are more than willing to consider these non-surgical alternatives. The body contouring market includes both minimally invasive and non-invasive devices. The minimally invasive device market includes Laser Assisted Liposuction (LAL) devices, Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) devices, Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) devices, and Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL) devices. The non-invasive market includes Radio Frequency (RF) energy devices, High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) devices, and cryolipolysis devices. This report will identify the unmet needs with current devices, discuss recently completed and ongoing clinical trial trends and how their results are expected to impact market landscape, and analyze the body contouring devices market’s outlook. The report provides up-to-date information and in-depth analysis on the key players that shape the global body contouring devices market.
