  • Rise in the hospital admission of chronic disease patients and increased trauma cases is driving the market growth

The number of patients with chronic diseases being admitted to hospitals has increased, as have the number of trauma cases. As many orthopedic, alimentary, ophthalmic, and other instances necessitate surgical suturing in case of surgeries, it is projected that this will raise demand for usage and adoption of surgical sutures. As a result, an increase in operations affected the demand for surgical sutures and favorably impacted the market's expansion.

According to 2019 statistics from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), the adult obesity rates in the United States exceeded 35% in nine states, 30% in 31 states, and 25% in 48 states. The same source indicates that Colorado had the lowest adult obesity rate (23%), while Mississippi and West Virginia had the highest percentage (39.5%). The prevalence of obesity in the population is growing, which is driving up demand for bariatric procedures. This fuels the demand for additional surgical sutures to be used in bariatric procedures and helps the market expand more quickly. During the projected period, a number of hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers with specialized and cutting-edge surgical suture procedures may contribute to the market expansion.

As more surgeries are done on patients, there is a growing demand for surgical sutures in the medical field. Improvements in treatment methods are being created as a result of developments in the healthcare sector, which is anticipated to accelerate market expansion. The demand for surgical sutures that are practical for both surgeons and patients is expanding as more and more advanced treatment techniques are being used in operations, notably in countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States, Canada, and Japan.

Additionally, it is anticipated that the aging population would spur market expansion. The industry is expected to develop as a result of the increase in deadly car accidents. The market for surgical sutures would have slower expansion due to other important factors including rising urbanization and rising disposable income. The market for surgical sutures will increase at a faster rate due to good reimbursement conditions and rising healthcare infrastructure spending. Thus, driving the Surgical Sutures market revenue.
