Surgical sutures have diverse applications as they hold tissues together after any sort of injury or surgery in order to assist the natural process of healing. Common places where these sutures are used are on the skin, internal tissues, organs, and blood vessels. After a pre-determined amount of time, the body tends to either absorb or break down the absorbable suture used in surgery. These types of sutures are developed of synthetic materials like caprolactone, polyglycolic acid, polydioxanone, polyglactin, and polyglyconate as well as natural materials like catgut. There are two types of absorbable sutures: knotted absorbable sutures and knotless absorbable sutures.

Once the predetermined time period is over then it is crucial to remove the non-absorbable sutures because they are composed of a substance that is immune to biological bodily processes. They are made use of materials like silk, nylon, polypropylene, and polyester sutures. There are two types of non-absorbable sutures: knotted non-absorbable sutures and knotless non-absorbable sutures. Over the last few years, the surgical sutures industry went through some major technological advancements which have led to the increased adoption of surgical sutures in comparison to other wound closure methods.

Key Takeaways

  • Some of the major advancements within the surgical sutures market include massive utilization of synthetic materials that are imbibed with special tissue-holding properties and are associated with less risk of infection and scar formation, suture coatings, braiding technologies, barbed sutures, and new specialty sutures, which are in the pipeline. Antibacterial-coated suture like Triclosan-coated polyglactin 910 reduces surgical site infection prevalence by 30%. The handling and tension force of these sutures was comparable to standard suture materials.
  • These surgical sutures are excessively used in therapeutic procedures along with a rising surgery market, incorporating the importance of patient outcome improvement and ensuring safe recovery from surgeries continues to drive the growth of the surgical sutures market. Key players in healthcare facilities and regulators are meticulously focusing on the outcomes of the patient and quality improvement. In addition to that, positive changes in reimbursement policies and widespread healthcare coverage are also expected to drive the market.

Competitive Landscape

The overall surgical sutures market is known to be highly fragmented owing to the presence of several competitors within the surgical sutures production spheres. In order to meet consumer demand and simultaneously expand their customer base, these companies are implementing methods such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships and collaborations, and new product launches.
