Ultrasonic Scissors Market Outlook - 2027

Surgical instruments can vary widely by the field of surgery that they are used in. The ultrasound scissors system includes an ultrasound generator with a foot switch, a reusable handle for the scalpel, and the cutting device with scissors. A round coagulator and laparoscopic coagulation hooks are also available. The round coagulator, the two blades for the scalpel, and the scissors can be used through 5-mm and 10-mm trocars. Shorter coagulation scissors and blades can be provided for open surgery. The 10-mm blades can be sterilized and can be used in at least 30 operations. The blade’s longitudinal vibration, with a frequency of 55,500 vibrations per second (55.5 kHz), can dissect parenchyma easily. The blade’s movement range is a distance of about 50 to 100 micrometers. An acoustic transformation system of piezoelectric elements in the knife’s handle transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy. The lateral spread of the energy is minimal (500 micrometers). The coagulating effect by means of protein denaturation is caused by destroying the hydrogen bonds in proteins and by the generation of heat in vibrating tissue. The cutting derives from a saw mechanism in the direction of the vibrating high-frequency blade. The intracellular generation of vacuoles makes the correct dissection of different layers of tissue even easier.

Covid-19 Scenario analysis:

The coronavirus COVID-19 is affecting 213 countries and territories around the world. COVID-19 has created new challenges that are requiring manufacturers to innovate at speeds they never have before. Supply chain disruptions, social distancing on high-touch assembly lines, limited ability to travel, and the need for oversight add significant complexity to today’s processes. The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has created a global health crisis that has had a deep impact on the manufacturing market there is a shortage in supply of raw materials from Chinese manufacturers which has resulted in a severe demand-supply gap. The manufacturers are further expected to be stranded on raw material orders owing to the logistics industry being significantly impacted due to lockdown amid COVID-19. This has all affected the market adversely causing a slowdown in the Ultrasonic scissors market due to shortage of supply and manufacturing.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact analysis:


Increased surgeries:

Increasing number of surgeries related to cancer, fat removal, dental etc. globally will drive the market growth for ultrasonic scissors. This can be attributed to the growing number of laparoscopic and bariatric surgeries across the globe. Increasing preference for ultrasonic scissors over conventional cutting instruments owing to advantages such as, effective cutting, sealing and less surgery time will further assist the market growth. Moreover, growing demand for minimally invasive procedures coupled with presence of major players operating in the ultrasonic scissors market will propel segmental growth. Growing burden of colorectal cancer across the world will positively impact market growth. As per the American Cancer Society, colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the U.S. that affects more than 1 million Americans every year. With growing cases of colon cancer, the demand for minimally invasive surgeries including laparoscopy will increase, thus boosting ultrasonic scissors business growth in the forthcoming period. Increasing number of bariatric surgeries owing to growing prevalence of obesity among the population will positively impact the growth of ultrasonic scissors market. As per, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, in 2017, approximately 2, 28,000 bariatric surgeries were performed in the U.S. Hence, with growing rate of bariatric surgical procedures, the demand for ultrasonic scissors will increase across the projected timeframe.

Technological advancements:

The new ultrasound scissors were used for laparoscopic and open liver resections from January 1998 to August 2000. Preoperative diagnostics and patient preparation were based on general guidelines as recommended by the German Surgical Society. A separate consent was not considered necessary because the UltraCision instrument is already being used in a wide spectrum of operations. TSU radio physicists have developed a working model of an ultrasound surgical instrument for coagulation of tissues. The next step will be the creation of a prototype, which will be ready by 2020 and launched on the market of Russia and neighboring countries. Radio physicists will develop a range of surgical instruments: in addition to a coagulation instrument, they will create a knife, a saw, and a pair of scissors. Ultrasonic vibrations from 10 to 100 kHz and an amplitude of 5–50 µm will reduce friction between the tissues and the blade, thanks to which the surgeon will spend less effort, and the operation will be faster and safer—blood loss will be reduced and healing will be faster. Using ultrasonic instruments, one can join the vessels, remove blood clots, remove eye cataracts, and perform other actions. Now radio physicists are working on different operating modes on a model, checking numerical models and conducting experiments. These studies and innovations will drive the market.

Safe instrumentation:

Despite standardized techniques for liver resection, the surgical death rate ranges from 4% to 20%. Dissection of the parenchyma of the liver may cause considerable blood loss. Further complications include liver failure, hematoma, infections, and bile leakage as a result of inadequate closure of the resection area of the liver. Surgical techniques are an important factor for preventing intraoperative and postoperative complications. Various techniques have been developed for safe and careful dissection of the liver parenchyma. In addition to blunt dissection using the “finger fracture” technique, various ultrasonic dissectors, water jet dissectors, laser systems, and specially prepared suction devices have been used. None of these techniques can achieve complete hemostasis during dissection. Consequently, blood vessels and biliary tract branches need to be clipped or sutured. In laparoscopic surgery dissection of parenchyma is performed using an electric hook or scissors to achieve a bloodless operating field. However, the use of electric coagulation may cause severe complications by damaging nearby organs (i.e., the common bile duct during cholecystectomy or the small bowel). The Ultrasonic scissors meet the requirement for a safe instrument for laparoscopic preparation.


The high cost associated with ultrasonic scissors is a major growth limiting factor. Moreover, stringent government regulations for approval of these products will further impede ultrasonic scissors market growth.
