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.
