In-depth Analysis and Data-driven Insights on the Impact of COVID-19 Included in this Global Surgical Wound Closure Devices Market Report

The global surgical wound closure devices market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of approx. 6% during the period 2021–2026.

The wound closure devices market has been adversely affected since the breakout of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 28 million planned surgeries across the world have been canceled due to the outbreak of the pandemic, which has significantly truncated the growth of wound closure devices. Majority of hospitals worldwide either postponed or canceled their planned elective surgeries during the pandemic, which has severely affected the application of advanced wound closure devices. With developed countries such as the US, Germany, and the UK suspending elective, specialty, and other surgeries to avoid exposure to the potential infection environment and to prioritize the treatment of COVID-19, the revenue of the global market has nosedived. Further, the utilization of surgical procedures with surgical wound closure devices declined in 2020 as the number of procedures decreased in the short term, hence, delaying new purchases of wound closure devices.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the surgical wound closure devices market during the forecast period:
• The shift toward Non-invasive Wound Closure Devices
• Introduction of Next Generation Wound Closure Devices
• Increase in Non-essential Surgeries
• Increasing Popularity of Natural Surgical Sealants

The study considers the present scenario of the surgical wound closure devices market and its market dynamics for the period 2020?2026. It covers a detailed overview of several market growth enablers, restraints, and trends. The report offers both the demand and supply aspects of the market. It profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent ones operating in the market.

Global Surgical Wound Closure Devices Market Segmentation
The global surgical wound closure devices market research report includes a detailed segmentation by product, end-user, patient group, geography. In 2020, surgical sutures and needles accounted for over 41% of the global surgical wound closure devices market share. With the increase in surgeries conducted across the globe, the demand for sutures is increasing. Despite the availability of substitutes such as staples, glues, and strips, the demand for suture materials is growing. The introduction of antimicrobial wound dressing is also likely to influence market growth. Surgical stapling devices are of crucial importance as they help to maintain hemostasis, prevent leakage, and preserve vascularization. These devices are increasingly preferred as they heal wounds quickly, offer minimal tissue reaction, and involve low infection risk. While sutures and needles dominate the market, the application of adhesives and sealants is growing on account of high performance and reduced infection risks. Sealant and adhesives are expected to grow at a CAGR of over 7% during the period 2020¬2026. Sealants or bio-adhesives are considered a promising substitute to sutures, staples. Their physical, biological properties and adhesive strength have encouraged several surgeons to employ them in clinical practices, thereby growing market opportunities.

Hospitals in developing and developed countries perform the majority of surgeries. Due to the rise in the geriatric population, the number of surgeries performed in hospitals is also growing. Most hospitals prefer the use of advanced wound closure devices to help patients recover quickly. Surgical staplers and advanced absorbable sutures are witnessing high adoption in hospitals. Furthermore, antimicrobial sutures are also being widely used in hospitals to avoid post-operative complications surgeries and prevent surgical site infections (SSI) as these infections accounted for a high percentage of deaths. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the postponement of elective surgeries in hospitals, especially in developed countries. Hence, the pandemic has a considerable effect on the global surgical wound closure devices market.

Adults dominate the wound closure devices market as a significant proportion of the human population undergoes surgical procedures at a point in life. The segment is expected to grow as adults are more susceptible to accidents, mishaps, and diseases. North America and Europe are expected to contribute maximum revenues due to the high number of surgeries carried out in these regions. However, with the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic, the number of elective surgeries in the US and Canada has been deferred. Europe is another high-revenue generating market as the region witnessing a high number of surgeries performed on the geriatric population and a high percentage of the population with morbidities such as diabetes. The pediatric segment accounted for over 23% of the share, however, there is a significant number of emergency surgeries performed in the pediatric group, sports injuries, congenital birth defects which account for the significant share of pediatric procedures, thereby increasing the demand for surgical wound closure devices in the market.

North America accounted for a share of over 36% of the global surgical wound closure devices market in 2020. The number of surgeries performed in North America is growing due to developed healthcare infrastructure and an increase in the geriatric population, which has drastically increased the patient pool requiring effective treatment and surgical procedures. This, in turn, is expected to propel market growth. In addition, benefits such as no cut or incision on body parts, less or no blood loss, enhanced patient care, and overall improved patient experience associated with non-invasive procedures are expected to further spur the market growth. Also, chances of hospital-acquired infections are minimal with these types of surgeries. This has increased the demand for non-invasive procedures.
