Market growth prospects for the breast reconstruction sector

In 2021, the market worth of breast reconstruction was USD 2.68 billion, and by 2030, it will reach USD 4.98 billion, expanding at a 7.11% CAGR during the forecast period. 

Breast reconstruction surgery restores the breast shape after a mastectomy or any procedure to address congenital disabilities. The market will expand due to the growing need for various breast reconstruction surgical procedures, such as nipple prostheses, mammoplasty, mastectomy, lumpectomy, etc. In order to lower their risk of developing breast cancer, more than 100,000 women in the U.S. get a mastectomy each year, according to Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

More than 3.1 million people in the U.S. have successfully battled breast cancer, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Less than 50% of the women who need a good mastectomy receive the greatest breast reconstruction procedures worldwide each year.

Market Dynamics


A major factor stimulating the growth of the market is the rising rate of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most prevalent diagnosed cancer worldwide, according to GLOBOCAN 2020. The WHO estimates that 2.3 million women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis worldwide in 2020. Over the past five years, over 7.8 million women have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer was common in Asian women, accounting for 22.9% of all cancer cases in women in 2020. Growing awareness about breast reconstruction options’ safety encourages women to undergo mastectomy.

The market is growing due to the rise in innovative items. For instance, G.C. Aesthetics introduced Perle, a cutting-edge round breast implant, in October 2020. Reverse surface technology was used in its development, resulting in less irritation and simpler implantation and incision. The advent of such cutting-edge breast implants will boost market expansion



The development of the global breast reconstruction market is hampered by the availability of non-surgical alternatives and the high cost of breast reconstruction utilizing implants.


The market will have considerable growth prospects due to quick technological improvements, strong growth potential in emerging regions, and the rising popularity of 3D-printed implants. Also, skin-sparing mastectomy is getting more popular all over the world and is quickly moving toward being the norm in the field of breast reconstruction.
