Surgical Sutures Market Drivers and Opportunities

Rise in the Number of Aesthetic Surgeries to Favor Market

The aesthetic surgery industry has grown and evolved in many parts of the world to meet the increasing demands of cultural trends. Nearly 13 million people worldwide have undergone surgical plastic surgery, according to a new report from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) titled “Global Survey on Aesthetic/Cosmetic Procedures.” According to the Aesthetic Surgery Society, surgical procedures in the United States alone increased by 54% in 2021. Over the last four years, there has been a 33% increase in cosmetic surgery, with surgical procedures increasing by 18.5%. Furthermore, the South and Central American countries are well-known destinations for medical tourism owing to the low cost of surgeries and medical facilities in comparison to other North American country such as the US. Considering the above-mentioned factors owing to the increasing number of aesthetic surgeries the demand for surgical sutures will rise which is likely to propel market growth.

Increasing Technological Developments in the Surgical Sutures

Surgical sutures are essential in wound care. Recent advances in sutures have expanded their applicability and effectiveness. The major advances in sutures are due to the development of materials based on their properties and capabilities for improving tissue convergence and wound closure. The biomedical application of sutures has been expanded due to advanced designs and materials. Emerging advances and trends in suture technology hold tremendous potential for clinical/surgical applications, including specialty procedures and wound care. The development of smart shape memory polymer (SMP) sutures can replace traditional sutures with self-tightening wound closures, reducing complexity for surgeons, especially in keyhole surgeries. Electronic sutures can monitor, detect, and activate typical biological responses in the body that would be efficient in improving the monitoring of local tissue health. Therefore, the technological development in the surgical sutures is expected to provide opportunities for the market in future.
