Otoplasty Market Synopsis:


Otoplasty market is expected to reach USD 1.2 billion at a CAGR of 6.5 % during 2017-2023. Otoplasty refers to surgical and non-surgical procedures for correcting external ear deformities and defects. The defects may be of morphology and structure of the external ear such as a deformation, absent external ear, damage by trauma etc. Otoplasty corrects the defect or deformity of the external ear by procedures such as shaping or augmenting of the cartilaginous support framework of the pinna etc. Otoplasty was developed in ancient India, in 5th century BC, by physician Sushruta and was described in the Sushruta samhita for correcting and reconstructing ear, nose and lips deformed due to amputations. Dieffenbach in 1845, demonstrated correction of post-traumatic auricular deformity and cosmetic otoplasty was described by Ely who performed a wedge excision to reduce the prominence of the ear.


The otoplasty market is driven by factors such as growing prevalence of congenital ear deformities such as Treacher Collins syndrome, hemifacial microsomia etc. Other factors are natural deformations and extremities such as bat ears, constricted ear, cryptotic ear, macrotic ear, question mark ear, Stahl’s ear deformity etc. the rising cases of trauma to the external ear such as due to blasts, puncture and damage due to blunt objects are also important drivers of the Otoplasty market. The growing influence of media and fashion industry coupled with greater screening for deformities at birth will drive the market for otoplasty.


The growing awareness and the availability of advanced products such as malleable and adjustable splints, tubings which can be adjusted for any size and shapes of the ear, are expected to make a positive impact on the otoplasty market. The rising per capita income and the growing acceptance of the plastic and aesthetics surgeries across the globe will drive the future otoplasty market. The critical market restraints are complications and discomfort associated with otoplasty, formation of abnormal scar tissue, distortion of the shape of the ear caused by overcorrection of deformed features and reappearance of ear protrusion. Generally, insurance providers do not provide coverage for otoplasty which is the biggest economic constraint. Again, cosmetic otoplasty surgeries have almost no coverage. Most patients do not have a life threat from the deformity which leads to low number of patients than the actual potential of the surgery procedure.


The market for devices is however fragmented with a large number of players of unknown origin operating in the segment. Thus, the market has a small profit margin which has constricted growth and thus there is high competition in the market.
