The surgical incision closure devices market will display positive growth during the forecast period, says the report. The effective closing of surgical cuts is important post-surgery to restore anatomical functions and to prevent tissue from falling apart. Thus, the first and foremost use of surgical incision closure devices lies in stopping bleeding i.e. hemostasis and to seal the incision both internally and externally. In the event of failure to seal surgical incisions effectively, it can cause serious medical complications such as inflammation and blood clots.
For surgical procedures, surgical sutures both absorbable and non-absorbable are age-old techniques for the closure of surgical incisions. However, newer devices such as hemostats, tissue sealants, and similar other devices that are technologically advanced are favoring the growth of the surgical incision closure devices market. The newer devices offer benefits of reduced risk of infection, fewer traumas, reduced recovery time, and improved cosmetic outcomes as compared to conventional techniques used for the closure of surgical cuts.
With a gamut of surgical incision closure products in the pipeline being developed using alternative materials, this market will receive a further boost. For instance, titanium suture needles are being replaced by stainless steel needles that are of medical grade for suturing purposes. An increasing number of R&D undertakings by medical devices manufacturers and research organizations for the development of newer and effective surgical incision closure devices will significantly benefit the growth of this market. However, the increasing preference for minimally invasive procedures is detrimental to this market’s progression.
North America and Europe are the largest markets for surgical incision closure devices. These regions record a high number of aesthetic surgeries, hip replacement procedures, knee replacement surgeries, and spinal fusions every year that are carried out using advanced surgical devices. Nevertheless, Asia Pacific will emerge as a significant market until the end of the forecast period, adds the report.
