Absorbable Surgical Sutures Market Scenario

The absorbable surgical sutures market is expected to register a significant growth during the forecast period (2018 to 2023).

Surgical sutures are used by doctors to close the wounds or an opening of a damaged tissue. An absorbable suture crumbles in the body through enzymatic or hydrolysis reactions taking place in the human body.  The absorbable sutures were formerly made from sheep’s intestine. Absorbable sutures are used for sewing of deep tissues which breaks down in the body within ten days to four weeks depending on the suture composition.

The substantial growth in the frequency of health conditions related to skin, soft tissues, and peripheral vascular surgery are the key factors that boost the growth of this market. The increase in aged population and the rising frequency of musculoskeletal diseases are also anticipated to drive the global market over the forecast period. Factors such as less rate of wound infection have made absorbable sutures extremely common among consumers which are reflecting greatly on their demand.

The increasing demand for advanced wound closure materials and lack of product innovations in surgical sutures act as major barriers for this market.
