Based on procedures, the lung cancer surgery market is segmented into thoracotomy and minimally invasive surgeries segment. The thoracotomy segment further sub-segmented into lobectomy, segmentectomy, sleeve resection and pneumonectomy. Among all, minimally invasive surgeries segment is expected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period. Less incisions, less hospital stay and faster recovery are the major factors that are expected fuel the growth of minimally invasive surgeries segment.

Currently, robot-assisted surgery, minimally invasive surgeries (such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgeries), and percutaneous trans-catheter surgeries (such as radiofrequency ablation and cryo ablation) are some of the advanced surgical procedures that are used in the treatment of lung cancer. As compared to conventional open surgeries, these advanced procedures offer various advantages such as shorter hospital stay, shorter chest tube duration, less blood loss, and smaller incisions. As a result, the preference for these procedures is higher among patients as well as surgeons. Considering the implications of these technological advancements on patient safety, patient comfort, and surgical outcomes, the demand for technologically advanced approaches for the treatment of lung cancer is expected to increase in the coming years.

Based on regions, the global lung cancer surgery market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America accounted for the largest share of the market during the forecast period. Growth in this regional segment is driven by factors such as increase in the aging population and increasing prevalence and incidence of lung cancer and availability of reimbursement for lung cancer surgeries in the region.
