Surgical-Sutures-Market-2020-2027

The surgical suture market is negatively impacted by the pandemic, as restrictions elated to functioning hours of general surgical procedure across the globe, which has been significantly diminished to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Furthermore, closure of many departments of various hospitals worldwide due to shortage of staff required has also impacted the number of surgeries, which are suggested to non-COVID-19 patients. Moreover, COVID-19 patients are expected to rush to allocate valuable resources to manage these patients. This has forced the world over to cancel elective surgeries. If there is any urgency regarding the patient’s surgery, surgical teams should consider waiting for COVID-19 test results of patients who may be suspected of being infected. In case of anticipated OT staff shortage, emergency surgical procedures especially in the night should be considered only after determining suitable availability of staff and equipment. Aerosol is generated during procedures such as intubation, electrocautery of blood, catheter insertion etc. This increases the risk of healthcare workers acquiring infection from patients who test COVID-19 positive or patients who are on high suspicion of having infections. Furthermore, reduced general surgical procedure impact the surgical sutures market in a deleterious manner.

Global surgical sutures market, by product type 

Surgical sutures are surgical threads used to close cuts of a wound to promote the healing process. In terms of product type, the automated suturing devices segment dominated the surgical suture market in 2019. This is attributed to the fact that ASDs are used to seal/close a wound and surgical incision. They are applicable in various surgical methods such as minimally invasive surgery, open surgical operations, and female urogenital surgeries. These devices are preferred during laparoscopic surgeries, as they provide accuracy and precision while operating in a three-dimensional plane. Thus, ASD adoption is on a rise over traditional suturing methods, owing to the aforementioned benefits, thereby augmenting the market growth.

Analyst Review

The utilization of different types of surgical sutures is expected to witness a significant rise with increase in the number of surgeries, surge in prevalence of chronic diseases, and improvement in healthcare infrastructure. The surgical suture market has piqued the interest of healthcare providers, due to high demand for surgical sutures in the healthcare industry to provide advanced treatment of different cuts and incisions during surgeries. The market is in the growing phase in the developing regions, which include Asia-Pacific and LAMEA, and hence offers potential growth opportunities to key players.

Increase in number of surgeries along with surge in aging population, rise in healthcare expenditure, and development of wound management sector are some of the major factors that drive the market growth. However, increase in preference for minimally invasive surgery along with the presence of alternative wound care management products restricts the growth of the market. On the contrary, rise in number of patients suffering from chronic diseases is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the expansion of the surgical suture market. 

Currently, the absorbable sutures segment garners the largest share of surgical suture market, as absorbable sutures do not cause allergies on skin and also degrade after heeling the wound and surgical cut or incision after certain period of time. They are therefore used in many internal tissues of the body. In most cases, three weeks is sufficient for the wound to close firmly. Absorbable sutures get dissolved within certain time frame, hence prove advantageous as the patient has to no longer get the sutures removed.
