The need for wound closure devices is anticipated to increase as chronic diseases become more common. One of the main causes of an increase in procedures done is the increased prevalence of chronic diseases such as autoimmune disorders, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. The incidence of chronic wounds, increased accident rates, and increased operations are all contributing to increased requests for wound closure devices. Over the projected period, it is anticipated that the prevalence of chronic wounds such as venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers will increase. In the upcoming years, this is anticipated to fuel the growth of the wound closure industry. Different products on the market have various advantages.


Surgical sutures constitute a more traditional type of incision closure and provide superior wound security for healing. In contrast to sutures, hemostatic agents and stapling tools offer more convenience and faster wound healing. Staples offer greater cosmetic appeal while hiding surgical scars more effectively. The rise in surgical procedures performed globally is one of the key reasons propelling the market for wound closure devices. The rise in the prevalence of impairments and increasing requests for these devices that assist in minimizing tissue stress and strengthening injured tissue accelerate market expansion. The federal government's increased financing to promote these solutions has further influenced the market.


Additionally, the market for wound closure devices is positively impacted by healthcare infrastructure improvements, rising healthcare spending, and rising demand for extended care delivery. Additionally, there has been an increase in surgical procedures globally in recent years. One of the primary causes of an increase in surgery is the rising number of people suffering from chronic conditions like diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune diseases. Over the last few decades, both communicable and infectious diseases have become more common. During the anticipated term, these variables are predicted to accelerate market expansion.


Wound Closure Devices Market Trends



  • Growing demand for plastic and cosmetic surgery to propel market growth


The increased demand for aesthetic and plastic surgery is one of the major reasons propelling the growth of the  Wound Closure Devices Market. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that since 2020, the number of virtual consultations for cosmetic operations has increased by 64% among US surgeons. However, those who have medical issues such trauma and accidents, burns, and numerous physical deformities undergo plastic surgery, including cosmetic treatments. Reconstructing the natural shape and look is the main goal of these operations. Reconstructive burn surgery, congenital defect correction, hand surgery, scar revision or removal, and lower extremity reconstruction are a few instances of plastic surgery. To close the incision after surgery, wound closure devices are necessary for surgical operations like liposuction, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, eyelid surgery, and breast lifts. During the projected period, these factors will fuel the market for wound closure devices. Thus, this factor is driving the market CAGR for wound closure devices.

Another significant market trends for wound closure devices that is anticipated to have a favorable effect on the sector during the projected period is advancements in wound care technologies. Numerous advancements in the care and treatment of wounds, including the creation of NPWT, have been made thanks to a deeper understanding of the pathophysiology of wounds. The US's implementation of the ACA intends to lower surgical site infection (SSI), which can cause a number of clinical consequences and incentivizes healthcare facilities to deploy infection control measures. A decline in the frequency of SSIs and better wound care are supported by the development and advancements in suture technology, tissue-controlled devices, and speciality needles. Additionally, the revenue from advanced wound care solutions has increased for market vendors. For instance, Smith & Nephew plc saw an 8.0% rise in revenue for its advanced wound care management products in Q1 2022 compared to Q1 2021. These elements will provide further assistance for the target market in the upcoming years.


However, the federal government's increased investment in encouraging the use of these solutions has a further impact on the market. Additionally, the market for wound closure devices is positively impacted by the rise in healthcare spending, improvements in the healthcare infrastructure, and rising demand for extended care delivery. Thus, it is anticipated that this aspect will accelerate wound closure devices market revenue globally.
