Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Surgical stapling devices can be defined as the staplers which are used in surgical procedures in order to seal or close the wound or the incised portion of the body. These are specialized instruments that can be used to seal or close the both internal as well as external wounds.
The global surgical stapling devices market is estimated to account for US$ 4,364.6 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.
Global Surgical Stapling Devices Market: Drivers
Increasing prevalence of obesity is expected to propel growth of the global surgical stapling devices market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, 2018, 71424.3 thousand people in the U.S. suffer from obesity.
Moreover, increasing geriatric population is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. geriatric population is expected to reach 77 million by 2034.
North America held dominant position in the global surgical stapling devices market in 2019, accounting for 28.6% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively.

Global Surgical Stapling Devices Market: Restraints
Use of surgical stapling devices can lead to injury after removing stapler, which is expected to hinder the market growth. For instance, in March 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration received more than 41,000 adverse event reports — including 366 deaths — associated with surgical staplers and staples for internal use, and that it may require stricter product review of the devices.
Moreover, high cost of surgical stapling devices is also expected to limit the market growth. The cost of the surgical stapling devices ranges from USD$ 75 to US$ 300 which is almost 3X costlier as compare to the high grade suturing materials currently available in the market.

Global Surgical Stapling Devices Market: Opportunities
R&D in functionality of devices is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global surgical stapling devices market. For instance, in January 2019, a Ethicon funded research stated that Ethicon’s Echelon Flex GST system had a 20% staple-line air leak rate when tested out on pig lungs under modeled physiologic breathing conditions, versus a 44% rate for Medtronic’s Endo Gia with Tri-Staple technology.
Moreover, development of reusable stapling devices is expected to aid in growth of the market.
The global surgical stapling devices market was valued at US$ 2,399.0 Mn in 2019 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 4,364.6 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 7.8% between 2020 and 2027.

Market Trends/Key Takeaways
Misuse of surgical staplers is on the rise. For instance, according to 13th edition of ECRI Institute’s Top 10 Health Technology Hazards, published in October 2019, surgical stapler misuse is the top health technology hazard, beating out the likes of point-of-care ultrasounds and sterile processing errors.
Increasing concerns regarding injuries from surgical staplers has prompted several regulatory bodies to propose regulatory changes. For instance, in June 2019, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s General and Plastic Surgery Devices Panel recommended that surgical staplers for internal use be reclassified to a more highly regulated status.
