Surgical Sutures Materials & Packaging Market Overview and Introduction
Surgical sutures materials & packaging market is estimated to be over US$ 887 Mn in 2018. It is anticipated to grow at a 4.7% CAGR from 2019 to 2030.
Surgical sutures are medical devices that are used to hold body tissues together after an injury or to close incisions from surgery. There are various varieties of sutures and they can be classified into various types based on the usage or application. Sutures are used for surgeries and hence the packing should be done in such a way that it ensures sterility. Sutures are packed in different types of packages namely multi-L-pack, trays, dispenser packaging, ligature pack, set pack and suture-box. Sutures are generally double packed first in a primary packaging and an outer packaging. The inner packaging is coated using a polymer lamination to enhance the ability to act as a barrier for moisture and oxygen as water can react with the suture material and cause its structure to break down.
The global surgical sutures materials & packaging market is driven by rising demand for the sutures as suturing technique is a widely adopted technique for wounds closure related to surgeries. Moreover, rise in population growth is increasing the need for different kinds of surgical procedures. Surgeries such as cardiovascular surgeries, orthopedic surgeries and other open surgeries. Also rising innovation in suture packaging are anticipated to drive the market. However, high cost of suture packaging process is likely to restrain the market to a certain extent.
Surgical Sutures Materials & Packaging Market by Type
On the basis of type, the surgical sutures materials & packaging market is segmented into materials and packaging type. The packaging type segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the global surgical sutures materials & packaging market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to newer technological advancements in the machines such that lager number of blister formed in a shorter time.
Surgical Sutures Materials & Packaging Market by Material
On the basis of material, the market can be segmented into polymers, paper & paperboards and other materials. In terms of market share, the segment of polymers is estimated to account for the largest market share, owing to the fact that polymer materials are inherently water resistant, inert to most organic and inorganic chemicals and add up to longer shelf life to the packaging done.
Surgical Sutures Materials & Packaging Market by Packaging Type
In terms of packaging type the surgical sutures materials & packaging market can be segmented into boxes, trays and other packaging type. The segment tray is estimated to grow at a robust CAGR during the forecast period. The large share of this segment is owing to the help in maintain sutures in a preferred singulated pattern during shipping and enables easy handling while withdrawal of the suture and also helps in minimizing memory effect, or ideally completely avoid the memory effect of suture threads.
Surgical Sutures Materials & Packaging Market by Region
The global surgical sutures materials & packaging market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of World (ROW). Europe dominated the market of surgical sutures materials & packaging market, followed by North America and Asia Pacific. Europe will continue to dominate the sutures materials & packaging market in the forecast period owing to the presence of majority of prominent players in this region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR, with the growth in this market centered at China and India. Factors such as low cost raw materials for packaging are anticipated to drive the growth of market in Asia-Pacific.
