The global body contouring market is highly diversified with the presence of many global and local players. The market is growing steadily due to growing awareness of body contouring procedures.

“Companies that hold a major share in the market include Alma Lasers, Cynosure, Meridian, Syneron, and Valeant. Most companies focus on providing solutions that reduce the risk, cost, and recovery time associated with the procedures. They are adopting different techniques to cut costs and lessen the pain involved in the procedures while manufacturing devices,” says Amber Chourasia, a lead analyst at Technavio for lab equipmentresearch.

The report states that APAC will be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period and has many companies spread across India, China, Japan, and South Korea that manufacture, market, and supply a broad range of body contouring devices for both invasive and non-invasive methods. In addition, many R&D facilities have been set up in the region, especially in China, which focus on developing energy-based devices.
