Dental suture is a fibrous material that can be used to stitch wounds during oral surgery. Dental sutures help in providing support to the tissues at the wound site and around it till the wound healing process is complete. Dental sutures can be made of either natural or synthetic material. Polyglycolic acid, polyester, and nylon can be used to make synthetic dental sutures while plain gut, silk, cotton, linen, and chromic gut can be used to make natural dental sutures. Dental sutures can have two fates; they are either absorbed into the skin or are non-absorbable and must be removed post wound healing.

The Global Dental Sutures Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 176.22 Mn in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period (2022-2030).

Global Dental Sutures Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic:

Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.

COVID-19 can affect the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others are facing problems with the transportation of drugs from one place to another.

Overall Covid- 19 had an negative impact on on the supply and demand of the global dental sutures market. For instance, an article published by PubMed in July 2021, stated that Median outpatient department cases and the number of surgeries (oral and maxillofacial surgery) done per week were reduced by 73.9% and 66.7%, respectively in India. Most surgeons (86%) experienced that cost of treatment had increased during the COVID-19. Over 75% were afraid to get infected with COVID, whereas 44.9% were anxious to lose their income. More than 56% of the oral and maxillofacial surgeons reported a fall in income and 94% reported decreased productivity in academic research.

Global Dental Sutures Market: Key Developments

For instance, in August 2021, SVS Institute of Dental Sciences, an educational institute in India, initiated a research study to compare the efficacy of barbed sutures with conventional sutures in mucogingival surgeries. The study is estimated to be completed in December 2022.
