Circular staplers have major applications in bariatric surgeries for obesity treatment, colectomy in colon cancer, and oesophageal cancer surgeries, namely esophagectomy. Circular staplers are used to carry out end-to-end anastomoses. The circular blade in the stapler automatically cuts off the excess tissues and clamps or seals the tissue ends together.
The demand for circular staplers is observed to be on the rise owing to the steady increase in obesity and cancers such as colorectal cancer. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), 13% of the world’s population is considered obese. The American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery reports that the average number of bariatric surgeries performed each year is 1,96,000. This rise in bariatric surgeries propels the demand for circular staplers, which would provide complete sealing of the tissue ends in gastric bypass surgeries.
As per the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer accounts for the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the USA. Around 95,520 cases of colon cancer and 39,910 cases of rectal cancer were estimated in 2017. Colectomy is a common procedure used to treat colorectal cancer that involves removing a portion of the colon. The use of circular staplers ensures complete ligation between the ends of the intestinal tissues. The constant rise in colon cancer would fuel the demand for circular staplers and lead to their positive growth in the future.
The aforementioned prevalence, continuous change in lifestyle behavior, and rise in the geriatric population propel the growth of the circular stapler market in the current period and in the future.
Circular staplers are available on the market as either reusable or disposable devices. The reusable devices are made of stainless steel and use disposable stapler cartridges. The devices are then sterilized for use after surgery. This kind of device provides less surgical waste. The disposable stapler devices are patient-specific and are disposed of after surgical use. Because they are more cost-effective than disposable devices, reusable devices are in high demand in the circular stapler market.
