Surgical sutures are used to hold tissue together after surgery or injury in order to speed up the natural healing process.They are normally utilized on the inner tissues, organs, blood vessels, and skin. Surgical methodologies are receiving expanding consideration as an approach to taking care of numerous general health issues faced worldwide. A surgical situation arises in any condition where the most powerful possible treatment is intercession, requiring sutures, incisions, and manipulation. At present, cardiovascular diseases and obesity are among the leading factors contributing to morbidity, mortality, and considerable costs in the U.S. According to the National Center for Health Statistics (US), there were approximately 50 million surgical, traumatic wounds in 2008. The number is expected to grow as the quantity of surgeries increases. Around 80 percent of traumatic and surgical wounds utilize some type of closure item, for example, sutures. Growth in the number of orthopedic surgeries, such as spinal fusion procedures and joint replacement, and cardiovascular surgeries, like heart revascularization and open heart bypass surgeries, are anticipated to boost the surgical suture market.

The global surgical sutures market is studied for their product types in the following areas for the purposes of this study:

  • Dissolvable Sutures
  • Non-dissolvable sutures

Suture strings are made using various materials. The first sutures were produced using biological materials, for example, silk and catgut sutures. Present-day sutures are manufactured, including the dissolvable polylactic corrosive, polydioxanone, monocryl, and polyglycolic corrosive, as well as the non-dissolvable nylon, PVDF, polypropylene, and polyester.

The FDA initially permitted triclosan-coated sutures in 2002; they have seemed to decrease the risk of wound infection. Sutures come in specific sizes and might be either dissolvable or non-dissolvable. Sutures must be adequately solid to grasp tissue safely; however, they must be mostly ductile to be tied. They should be hypoallergenic and escape the "wick impact" that would permit fluid and, thus, contamination to infiltrate the body near the suture tract.

Surgery is a critical component of healthcare frameworks. Moreover, earlier efforts to incorporate surgical services in health activities do not reflect the extent of surgical need, and numerous health systems do not provide fundamental interventions. The predominance of this segment is attributed to the expanding number of surgeries.

For the purpose of this study, the global surgical sutures market is studied for its application in the following areas:

  • Orthopedic surgeries
  • Cardiovascular surgeries
  • Cosmetic surgeries
  • General surgeries
  • Ophthalmic surgeries
  • Gynecological surgeries
  • Neurological surgeries
  • Others

Surgical sutures are categorized into various categories on the basis of their application areas, such as gynecological, general, cosmetic, ophthalmic, cardiovascular, neurological, orthopedic, and other surgeries. The application in cardiovascular surgeries dominated the surgical suture market in 2016 and is expected to continue its supremacy in the forecast period.

The orthopedic and general surgery segment is expected to flourish at the fastest rate, followed by other application segments. The rising prevalence of cardiovascular disease patients has led to an increase in the number of cardiovascular surgeries. An expected 17.7 million individuals died from CVDs in 2015, representing 31% of all worldwide deaths. An estimated 7.4 million of these deaths were caused by coronary heart disease, while 6.7 million were caused by stroke. The expansion of the geriatric population pool around the globe and the rise in the number of minimally invasive surgeries are amplifying the market for surgical sutures.

For the purpose of this study, the global surgical sutures market is studied for their application in the following usage areas:

  • Hospitals
  • Ambulatory Centers
  • Private Clinics

Among the considered usage areas, surgical sutures enjoy the largest application in hospitals, followed by ambulatory centers. Higher affordability of hospitals in terms of the purchase of surgical sutures, greater handling skills, and a higher cost-benefit ratio due to better patient footfall are the main factors driving the dominance of hospitals. It is further expected that due to the increasing preference of patients for approaching specialized private clinics for their requirements owing to faster turnaround times and better treatment outcomes, an increasing number of surgical procedures will uplift the demand for surgical sutures from private clinics during the forecast period. Therefore, it is expected that the growth of the private clinic segment will be greater than the global benchmark during the forecast period.

Geographically, the global surgical sutures market is composed of Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America.

North America holds the prime share in the global surgical sutures market, pursued by Asia Pacific, attributable to major reasons such as the high prevalence of diseases linked with the esophagus, liver, colon, stomach, and more in North America. The high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and obesity in top-wage and higher-middle-wage nations was twofold greater than that in low- and lower-middle-wage nations.

The surgical suture market is basically determined by expanding demand because of demonstrated clinical results and the accessibility of a wide variety of suture materials for particular procedure uses. Expanding institutional buying in the U.S. and developing surgical procedures in orthopedics, endoscopy, laparoscopic surgeries, and cardiovascular surgeries are anticipated to boost the market in the upcoming years. Over the span of the forecast period of 2017–2025, Asia Pacific is seen as the quickest developing region because of key driving elements, such as the rising prevalence of cardiovascular surgeries, obesity surgeries, and evolving healthcare expenditure.

The geographical classification of the global surgical suture market is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. and Canada)
  • Asia Pacific (India, China, Japan, and the Rest of Asia Pacific)
  • Europe (Germany, Spain, France, Italy, the U.K., and the rest of Europe)
  • Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, and the Rest of Latin America)
  • Middle East and Africa (GCC plus the rest of the Middle East and Africa)
