Surgical Sutures Market: Snapshot

The global surgical sutures market is primarily driven by increased prevalence’s of chronic diseases. The suture is a tool used in stitching cutaneous wounds and to close surgical opening. Prime applications of surgical sutures are to stich internal wound during organ surgery, blood vessels, and skin wound. Its absorbing properties can vary depending upon requirement and type of surgery. The advancements in the surgical sutures are propelling its adoption from numerous operations. Rising demand from end-use is positively influencing growth of the global surgical sutures market over forecast period.

One of the leading company Johnson & Johnson has announced launch of DYNACORD suture in June 2018 through its franchise – DePuy Synthesis – mainly for repairing tissues such as rotator cuff present in the shoulder. This has launched in the US for now being part of product portfolio of DePuy Synthes Mitek Sports and HEALIX ADVANCE Anchors. These are designed to meet requirements of the patients and healthcare providers in treatment of soft tissues. 

Overall 25% of people above 60 are suffering from rotator cuff problems in which the rotator cuff is not attached to upper part of arm bone. The goal of arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery is to reattach the tissue to the upper arm using fibrous joint and an anchor. These types of repair have been display to reduce pain, improve move and restore function for patient role. Despite of huge advancements in the systems 20% of failure is expected due to loss of suture tension. Due to the tension, it forms gaps between tissue and bone. DYNACORD Suture helps to recover the tension and promote rapid healing process.

Shorting of traditional suture may lead to bone compression which prolongs the healing process. Unveiling this product is expected to be beneficial for growth of the market owing to its advantages over traditional suture.

Global Surgical Sutures Market: Overview

Surgical sutures are medical tools used to stitch open wounds and close the surgical incision. The growing awareness regarding healthcare, especially in low- and middle-income countries is impacting the global market for surgical sutures. On the basis of product, the global surgical sutures market can be bifurcated into non-automated sutures and automated suturing devices. Non-automated sutures can be absorbable and non-absorbable. Similarly, automated devices are disposable and reusable. Based on applications, the market can be segmented into general surgeries, cardiovascular surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, gynecology surgeries, and ophthalmic surgeries.

Global Surgical Sutures Market: Key Trends

The growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disorders, and diabetes is leading to the rising number of surgical procedures worldwide. This factor is, thereby, creating a staggering volume of demand for surgical sutures. The increasing focus on research and development activities is facilitating the launch of advanced sutures, which in turn is also working in favor of the market. Besides this, expenditure on the majority of surgical sutures is covered under insurance policies, therefore, the presence of favorable reimbursement scenario is stoking the growth of the market.

On the flip side, the growing preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures is creating a dent in the global demand for surgical sutures. Moreover, the lack of proper sterilization systems in healthcare organizations and presence of a number of substitute wound care management products are impeding the growth of the market.

Global Surgical Sutures Market: Market Potential

To ensure maximum profit, market players are focusing towards the development of innovative and safe sutures. For instance, in September 2016, Mellon Medical unveiled a precision-suturing instrument, Switch®, which allows surgeons to suture tubular and layered structures about twice as fast as the traditional technique at reduced risk of complications. This is expected to allow enhanced patient outcome and reduced costs. The international market launch of this instrument is anticipated to happen by 2018. The advent of such suturing devices is likely to work in favor of the global surgical sutures market. The adoption in robotics in suturing procedures is also poised to open new avenues for market players.
