Surgical Suture Market Overview and Introduction
Surgical suture is a medical device used to hold body tissues together after an injury or surgery. There are a wide range of materials available for suturing. Surgeon or doctor chooses a material that’s appropriate for the wound or procedure. The ideal suture should allow the healing tissue to recover appropriately, to keep the wound closed together once they are removed or absorbed.
The global surgical suture market is driven by increasing number of surgical procedures, growing geriatric population, and favorable reimbursement scenarios. In U.S., surgeons perform approximately 64 million surgical procedures, ranging from tooth extraction to open heart surgery every year. Along with it, population growth, aging baby boomers, change in lifestyle, rising incidences of road mishaps, plastic and cosmetic surgeries, increasing prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders and introduction of technologically advanced products are likely to increase the number of surgeries.
Furthermore, the pace of population ageing is significantly increasing worldwide. The global population aged 65 and over is growing faster compared to all other age groups. As most of the cardiac cases are diagnosed in patients aged 60 and above which needs to be treated with surgery, it is impacting the market positively. According to statistics, in 2014, the number of cardiovascular surgeries in North America was 377,763 which will increase up to 461,046 by 2021.
Moreover, other factors such as favorable government regulations and promising reimbursement scenarios for a number of surgical procedures are likely to drive this market in the near future. For instance, the reimbursement coverage offered by Medicare is expected to cover more than 21 million people with high-quality customer experience impacting the market in a positive way.
Surgical Suture Market by Product
On the basis of product, the surgical suture market is segmented into absorbable and non-absorbable sutures, of which, both are further segmented into natural and synthetic sutures. Absorbable suture segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the global surgical suture market throughout the forecast period. The large market share can be attributed to its characteristics of absorption, flexibility to use, and painless post-operative property for patient undergoing surgery. Absorbable synthetics suture is further segmented into Polyglactin 910 (Vicryl), Polyglycolic Acid sutures, Poliglecaprone 25 sutures, Polydioxanone sutures, and other synthetic sutures. Among the natural and synthetic absorbable sutures, synthetic sutures hold the largest market share, depending upon the wide range of availability and variety of absorbable synthetic sutures. Non absorbable synthetic sutures are further segmented into nylon, prolene, stainless steel and other non-absorbable synthetic sutures. In terms of market share, synthetic non absorbable sutures hold the largest share, owing to the properties such as flexibility, knot security, knot strength and minimal memory.
Surgical Suture Market by Type
On the basis of type, the market is segmented into monovalent and multivalent surgical sutures. Multivalent segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the advantages of multivalent sutures such as greater tensile strength, and better flexibility compared to monovalent.
Surgical Suture Market by Application
On the basis of application, the market is segmented into cardiovascular surgeries, gynecological surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, neurological surgeries, general surgeries, and others. Cardiovascular surgeries segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing cardiovascular surgeries due to smoking, obesity, hypertension, diabetes among other.
Surgical Suture Market by End User
Based on end user, the market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers (ASC), and clinics and physician offices. Hospitals end user segment is expected to dominate the market in 2019. The growth of this segment is attributed to the increasing number of hospitals carrying out surgeries.
Surgical Suture Market by Region
By geography, the global surgical suture market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of World (ROW). North America dominated the market of surgical suture, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. North America will continue to dominate the global surgical suture market in the near future owing to factors such as well-developed healthcare facilities that include well enabled hospitals, along with the increase in incidence of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and increasing number of injuries that requires surgical intervention. However, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR, with the growth in this market centered at China, Korea, Japan and India. Factors such as increasing prevalence of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, coronary thrombosis and cancer are likely to fuel the growth of this market. Also, Asia-Pacific regions offer major growth prospects for key players owing to factors such as access to better healthcare infrastructure; growing consumer disposable income, upsurge in demand for improved healthcare, and rising medical tourism industry.
