Automated suturing devices are medical devices used for sealing tissue after surgery or wound. These devices are used in various surgeries. In most developed countries, automated suturing is preferred over conventional suturing as it enables better wound healing and decreases hospital stay duration of patients post-surgery. Global automated suturing devices market is estimated to account for US$ 471.0 Mn by the end of 2015, and is projected to grow substantially due to rising demand for automated suturing devices in minimally invasive surgeries.
Automated Suturing Devices Market: Drivers
Increasing geriatric population, number of surgical procedures, incidence of trauma cases, risks associated with changing lifestyle, trauma cases and adoption rate of minimally invasive procedures are key factors driving growth of the automated suturing devices market. Prevalence of obesity is increasing significantly in the U.S. and other developed countries as compared to other regions of the world. These devices, especially disposable automated suturing devices, are preferred by surgeons over conventional suturing method. Though this market is growing at a significant rate, low product availability, high cost along with lack of skilled professionals is proving to be a major hindrance to overall growth of the market.

Major companies are acquiring other companies to strength their position in the market. In 2013, Boston Scientific acquired the fixate tissue band – a semi-automated suturing device – from Anulex Technologies.
This Future Market Insights report examines the ‘Automated Suturing Devices Market’ for the period 2015 - 2025. The primary objective of the report is to offer updates and in-depth analysis of market opportunities in the global automated suturing devices market.
Automated suturing devices are majorly used in minimal invasive surgeries, open surgical procedures and major trauma cases that require surgery. Automated suturing devices are preferred over conventional suturing devices during laparoscopic surgeries, as suturing becomes difficult when a surgeon is operating in three-dimensional plane while concentrating on a two-dimensional plane. Using automated suturing devices enables surgeons to achieve accuracy and precision. Secondly, the device is also preferred by procurement teams at hospitals as it labelled under “green products”, resulting in considerably less impact on the environment as compared to plastic single-use disposable suturing devices.
