According to a market research report published by Transparency Market Research, the global surgical equipment market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% during the period between 2013 and 2019. The report, titled “Surgical Equipment Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019,” projects the global surgical equipment market to be worth US$11.28 bn by 2019. The overall market stood at a valuation of US$8.43 bn in 2013.
Surgical equipment are widely used during surgical procedures for making incisions, grasping certain tissue or skin, holding organs and tissue back, coagulation of blood vessels, providing access to site of operation, and closing the wound by stapling or stitching. Handheld instruments, staples, sutures, and electrosurgical devices are the most commonly used surgical equipment.
The report states that the year-on-year rise in the number of surgical procedures and the growing demand for minimally invasive procedures have fuelled demand from the global surgical equipment market. The rapidly increasing geriatric population and various technical advancements have also augmented the growth of the market.
However, the growing demand for advanced wound closure materials such as hemostats, glues, high-strength medical adhesives, fibrin, and other sealants will negatively impact the market’s growth during the forecast horizon. Additionally, the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) in the U.S. will hamper the growth of the market in North America. There have been a number of incidences of product recalls owing to the side effects associated with some surgical devices. This will also restrain the market. The overall market has a huge scope to grow across the emerging economies in Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Eastern Europe.
In terms of product type, the report broadly segments the global surgical equipment market into surgical sutures and staples, surgical handheld instruments, and electrosurgical devices. The surgical handheld instruments segment has been further divided into forceps, scalpels, retractors, and scissors. The demand for surgical sutures and staples was the highest in 2012 and the segment accounted for over 55% of the market. However, during the forecast period, the segment is expected to lose market share to electrosurgical devices.
