Market Scenario


Global dissolvable sutures market is expected to gain prominence over the forecast period (2018-2023). It is estimated that the global dissolvable sutures market is expected to grow at a CAGR ~5.2 % during the forecast period of 2018–2023.


Dissolvable sutures are stitches that doctors and surgeons, use to hold skin, internal organs, blood vessels, and all other tissues of the human body together, after the injury, incision, or surgery. These sutures have an anticipated advantage as they are broken down in the body tissue after a given period, and no foreign material left inside the patient's body. 


The market growth is attributed to the increasing aging population, rising occurrence of chronic diseases, increasing healthcare expenditure, growing number of surgeries and burns, and increasing number of hospitals. According to the WHO, an estimate of tens of million people are injured or disabled worldwide every year in road accidents. Additionally, immense technological advancements in material science and increasing occurrences of musculoskeletal diseases are likely to boost the market growth during the forecast period.


Despite the drivers, the development of advanced wound care dressings and availability of alternatives such as surgical staplers and complications such as hemorrhage and leakage, especially in esophageal and colonic anastomosis are a few factors restraining the growth of the dissolvable sutures market. Furthermore, stringent government regulations and increasing preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures are the constraints limiting the market growth.

 Dissolvable Sutures Market


Source: MRFR Analysis


The global dissolvable sutures market consists of four regions, namely, Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa. North America holds the highest market share in the global dissolvable sutures market owing to the higher adoption of technologically advanced products for surgical procedures in the region, increase in the prevalence of various chronic diseases, and the development of the wound management sector. In addition, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2015, an approximate 2.8 million people were hospitalized due to injuries in the United States.


Europe holds the second position in the global dissolvable sutures market. The availability of funds for research, huge patient population, increasing healthcare expenditure, and government support for research and development drive the European market. For instance, according to the National Statistics in 2015, the healthcare spending in the U.K. reached 271.6 USD billion in 2015 from 262.2 USD billion in 2014. Furthermore, the presence of developed countries such as Germany and the U.K. within the region is expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period.


Asia Pacific is experiencing the fastest growth for the global dissolvable sutures market owing to the increasing prevalence of cardiac diseases, rising obese pool, increasing cases of burns, and geriatric population. India and China dominate the market for dissolvable sutures in the Asia Pacific region. According to the World Health Organization, over 1,000,000 people are moderately or severely burnt every year in India. Additionally, the availability of significant growth opportunities for prominent players due to improved healthcare infrastructure, rise in healthcare awareness, and development in the medical tourism industry are also contributing to the growth of the market.


The Middle East and Africa holds the lowest share of the global market due to low development, lack of technical knowledge, and poor medical facilities.
