The surgical sutures market is driven by various factors such as the growing demand for surgical procedures, technological advancements in surgical sutures, and an increase in the number of surgical procedures due to lifestyle changes. The rise in chronic diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer is a major factor contributing to the market growth. This is because surgical procedures are often required as a treatment option for these conditions.

Another factor contributing to market growth is the increasing preference for minimally invasive surgeries. These surgeries require fewer sutures and are associated with fewer complications, resulting in a decreased need for surgical sutures. However, the rise in the use of alternative methods of wound closure, such as skin adhesives, tissue sealants, and hemostats, is expected to limit the growth of the surgical sutures market.

The market is highly competitive, with several companies competing locally and globally. Companies are implementing various strategies such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships and collaborations, and new product launches to expand their customer base and meet consumer demand. The rise in lifestyle diseases due to the increasing adoption of a sedentary lifestyle is another factor contributing to the market growth.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the surgical suture market, as restrictions on surgical procedures and reduced hospital resources have led to a significant decrease in non-COVID-19 surgeries. Many hospitals have closed departments due to staff shortages, and resources are being directed towards managing COVID-19 patients. Elective surgeries have been cancelled, and surgical teams are advised to wait for COVID-19 test results before proceeding with urgent surgeries. Additionally, procedures that generate aerosols increase the risk of healthcare workers acquiring infections from COVID-19 positive patients or those suspected of having the infection. These factors have resulted in a reduction in general surgical procedures, adversely affecting the surgical sutures market.

Surgical Sutures Market Share Insights

  • Increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures: Minimally invasive procedures require smaller incisions and typically involve less tissue disruption, resulting in reduced recovery time, less scarring, and decreased risk of infection. As a result, there is an increasing demand for sutures that are suitable for use in these procedures, such as absorbable sutures that dissolve over time.
  • The growing use of advanced materials: Manufacturers are developing new sutures using advanced materials such as synthetic polymers and bioabsorbable materials that offer improved strength, flexibility, and resistance to infection. These materials also enable the development of more specialized sutures, such as those designed for use in cardiovascular or orthopedic surgeries.
  • Increasing focus on infection prevention: Healthcare facilities are placing greater emphasis on preventing surgical site infections (SSIs), which can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. As a result, there is a growing demand for sutures that are coated with antimicrobial agents or have other properties that reduce the risk of infection. In addition, manufacturers are developing sutures with improved handling and knotting properties that reduce the risk of tissue trauma, which can also contribute to SSIs.
