Surgical Staplers Market Overview and Introduction
Surgical staplers are medical devices that are utilized to close surgical incisions or wounds that are too big or complex to close with traditional stitches. They are commonly utilized in gastrointestinal, gynecologic, thoracic, and many other surgeries. There are several advantages of surgical staplers such as quick placement, minimal tissue reaction, low risk of infection, and strong wound closure. In March 2019, FDA provided several new recommendations regarding the safe use of surgical staplers. The FDA has issued an order to reclassify surgical staplers for internal use from Class I to Class II medical devices. This will allow the FDA to establish special controls and mandatory premarketing notification (510(k)) for surgical staplers.
The increasing number of surgeries performed worldwide is primarily contributing to the growth of the surgical staplers market. Moreover, the increasing preference for surgical staplers over traditional stitches & suturing devices is propelling their increasing adoption for performing critical surgeries. However, the lack of trained professionals and increasing product recalls have adversely affected the market growth.
The global surgical staplers market has been segmented by mechanism, product type, application, end user, and region.
Surgical Staplers Market By Mechanism
Based on mechanism, the surgical staplers market can be segmented into powered surgical staplers and manual surgical staplers. In 2019, the powered surgical staplers segment accounted for the largest market share. Powered surgical staplers demonstrated negligible staple firing and blade retraction forces as compared to the manual staplers. This increases the instrument stability and eliminates the muscular damage caused during surgery.
Surgical Staplers Market By Product Type
Based on product type, the market can be segmented into disposable surgical staplers and reusable surgical staplers. The disposable surgical staplers segment accounted for the largest market share in 2019 owing to the increasing preference for disposable staplers in surgeries involving large incision closure. Disposable surgical staplers are comparatively safe & reliable options as they minimize the chances of infection spread, which is mainly caused due to cross-contamination.
Surgical Staplers Market By Application
Based on application, the surgical staplers market can be segmented into general surgery, orthopedic surgery, abdominal & pelvic surgery, cardiac & thoracic surgery, and others. In 2019, the abdominal & pelvic surgery segment accounted for the largest market share. Surgical staplers are preferred in abdominal and pelvic surgeries owing to the least chances of contamination, minimal tissue damage, and reliable & secure incision closure. Moreover, cases of several abdominal surgeries, such as appendectomy, cholecystectomy, colon surgery, and hernia surgeries, among others are increasing, further boosting the growth of this segment.
Surgical Staplers Market By End User
Similarly, in terms of end user, the market can be segmented into hospitals & clinics and ambulatory surgical centers. Hospitals & clinics accounted for the largest market share in 2019. Various surgical procedures, such as orthopedic, abdominal, and general surgeries, are widely carried out in hospitals and specialized clinics worldwide, further contributing to its large market share.
Surgical Staplers Market By Region
The global surgical staplers market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). In 2019, North America dominated the surgical staplers market owing to the increasing number of surgical procedures in this region. For instance, according to a report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), in 2017, there were 17.5 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S. Furthermore, the increasing geriatric population, advanced healthcare infrastructure and the presence of key players in this region will contribute significantly to the regional market growth.
Surgical Staplers Prominent Players
Some of the prominent players in the global surgical staplers market are Medtronic, Ethicon US, LLC., Purple Surgical, Grena LTD, Victor Medical Instruments Co., Ltd., Frankenman International Ltd, Golden Stapler Surgical Co.Ltd, CONMED Corporation, B. Braun Melsungen AG, and XNY Medical, among others.
