Market Report Description

The Global Surgical Stapling Devices Market size is expected to reach $7.9 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 9.4% CAGR during the forecast period.

Surgical stapling devices apply surgical staples instead of sutures to heal skin wounds or keep tissue together. When operating time is an issue and aesthetic closure is not a top priority, surgical staples may help close injuries quickly. There are now three main categories of mechanical staplers for open and endoscopic surgery: linear, circular, and endoscopic surgical staplers.

Several novel surgical equipment and gadgets are now available because of technological advancements in various scientific fields. To enhance patient outcomes, surgeons can create novel surgical procedures due to the constant introduction of new instruments and the ongoing technological advances in already-existing technologies.

In many instances, surgeons may need to learn the scientific or clinical foundation for the best use of these technologies or how to benefit from any particular advantages a specific technology may have. So, even if the devices work well, surgeons may often depend on their expertise, judgment, or anecdotal evidence for better results.

Equipment that is often employed during surgical operations and is also undergoing a nearly continual state of technological evolution is the surgical stapler. While these tools are adaptable and practical, there have been well-reported instances of staple line leaks that resulted in postoperative difficulties, many of which were caused by problems unrelated to ischemia.

In operations, particularly challenging ones like gynecologic, gastrointestinal, & bariatric procedures, surgical stapling instruments are becoming more and more crucial. In addition, the use of surgical stapling devices facilitates the development of novel surgical techniques, the alteration of existing procedures, and the enhancement of clinical results. The increasing demand for less invasive treatments globally drives the expansion of the surgical stapling devices market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The lockdown compelled many hospitals to stop their outpatient departments for situations other than emergencies, which had a significant impact on the market for surgical stapling devices. Social exclusion, population control, and restricted clinic access substantially influenced the market. However, the market is anticipated to grow significantly after the lockdown restrictions are lifted as significant manufacturers are concentrating on introducing technologically cutting-edge items to increase their market share. Also, with production getting back on track, and the resume in surgical procedures which is increasing the demand, the surgical stapling devices market will start to expand again after the pandemic.

Market Growth Factors

The technological betterment of surgical stapling devices

Technological developments in surgical staples and related staples have significantly impacted the acceptance of surgical stapling devices by healthcare practitioners. With the introduction of powered surgical staplers, the time needed to seal the wound after surgery has decreased, minimizing problems and blood loss. In clinical testing, the powered surgical stapler performed better in the speed of healing and decreased discomfort. Hence, it is anticipated that the technical benefits offered by surgical stapling devices will drive market growth.

Rising prevalence of chronic diseases

Due to the rise in chronic illnesses like cancer during the last several years, there has also been an increase in the number of visits to ambulatory surgical facilities. Moreover, it is predicted that the market for surgical staplers will grow throughout the projection years due to the rise in laparoscopic treatments chosen by patients. The decreasing cost, shorter hospital stays, and increasing popularity of laparoscopic operations are all due to these factors. Hence with the high prevalence of chronic cases and the rising popularity of laparoscopic operations, the market growth for surgical stapling devices will surge.

Market Restraining Factors

Common issues with surgical staplers

Opening of the staple line at a wound site, faulty staples that result in insufficient sealing, defective or jammed staplers, failing to shoot a staple from a stapler, staples that were improperly positioned on the wrong tissue spot using a staple that is the incorrect size for a particular application are some of the common issues associated with the usage of stapling devices. These frequent issues may result in surgical staple wounds, lengthening healing time and exposing the patient to higher medical and rehabilitation expenses. These issues with the stapling devices are expected to restrict their market expansion.

Product Type Outlook

Based on product type, the surgical stapling devices market is segmented into powered and manual. The powered segment acquired a significant revenue share in the surgical stapling devices market in 2021. This is due to their simplicity of wound closure without requiring physical effort. Medical professionals now have more options due to the availability of powered surgical stapling devices in various sizes. In addition, the escalating technical advancements, product launches, and firms' increased emphasis on developing powered stapling devices are among other factors which are anticipated to boost the segment growth.

Type Outlook

On the basis of type, the surgical stapling devices market is divided into disposable and reusable. The reusable segment held the highest revenue share in the surgical stapling devices market in 2021. This is because reusable surgical stapling instruments may be used on several patients after sterilizing. Due to the product's low cost, the category is expected to have a bigger share in developing countries. Furthermore, the introduction of surgical stapling devices combined with absorbable staplers is projected to boost the segment expansion in the projected period.

End Use Outlook

By end-use, the surgical stapling devices market is classified into hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers. The hospitals segment witnessed the largest revenue share in the surgical stapling devices market in 2021. This is because hospitals are seeing a significant trend that points to a move towards clinical efficiency models, including robotic surgery. Minimally invasive procedures benefit from robotic surgery. The hospitals have well-trained staff and high-tech devices, which ensures a safe and successful procedure. Also, the hospital category is anticipated to maintain its dominance due to favorable reimbursement conditions for different methods during the projection period.
