Global Surgical Staplers Market: Regional Insights
Based on geography, the global surgical staplers market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market over the forecast period due to the increasing number of surgical procedures. Surgical staplers are used outside the body to close large wounds or surgical cuts on a patient's skin or scalp. While they are used to connect tissue during minimally invasive surgeries or to remove an organ. Thus, with the increasing number of surgical procedures, the use of surgical staplers is also increasing rapidly. According to the American College of Surgeons (ACS), every year, around 15 million people in the United States have some kind of surgery.
Moreover, Asia Pacific is also expected to witness robust growth in the global surgical staplers market due to the presence of a large patient pool in economies such as India, China, and Japan. With the increasing prevalence of various disease, the number of surgical procedures is also increasing in this region. Surgical staplers are categorized under drugs and regulated under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act in India because of increasing demand and use.

Global Surgical Staplers Market Drivers:
Increasing number of various surgical procedures across the globe is expected to augment the growth of the global surgical staplers market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, worldwide, more than 310 million major surgeries are performed each year; million in Europe and around 40 to 50 million in the United States. Growing number of surgeries can be attributed to the rapidly growing senior population worldwide and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases.
Technological advancements in surgical staplers or introduction of technologically advanced surgical staplers by market players is expected to propel growth of the global surgical staplers market over the forecast period. For instance, in June 2021, Intuitive India launched robotic-assisted surgical stapler, SureForm, which makes automatic adjustments to a firing process as staplers are being formed, and the transaction is being made to help optimise a consistent staple line and prevent tissue damage across a range of tissue thicknesses.
Global Surgical Staplers Market Opportunities:
Growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries around the world is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for players in the global surgical staplers market. For instance, minimally invasive surgery allows surgeon to use techniques that limit the size and number of cuts that they need to make. Surgical staplers are useful in minimally invasive surgery because they require only a narrow opening and can quickly cut and seal tissue and blood vessels. Thus, there is an increasing demand for surgical staplers worldwide.
Increasing preference for surgical staplers over sutures is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global surgical staplers market. For instance, surgical staplers are specialized staplers used in/during a surgery in place of sutures to perform anastomosis in efficient and sterile manner. Moreover, they are faster and easier to use (compared to sutures) for organ resection or connection surgery and cause less pain and inflammation. Therefore, the demand for surgical staplers (over sutures) is increasing.

Global Surgical Staplers Market Trends:
Continuous developments and launches of novel products is expected to boost growth of the global surgical staplers market. For instance, in June 2022, Ethicon announced the launch of the ECHELON 3000 Stapler, a digital device that provides surgeons with simple, one-handed powered articulation to help address the unique needs of their patients.
Frequent product approvals are also expected to propel growth of the global surgical staplers market. For instance, in December 2021, Intuitive received the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for an 8mm Sureform 30 curved-Tip Stapler, a robotic stapler with 120-degree articulation and SmartFire technology.
Global Surgical Staplers Market Restraints:
Stringent rules and regulations regarding safety are expected to hinder the growth of the global surgical staplers market. Surgical staplers are subjected to stringent regulatory requirements, including requiring premarket notification and special controls to help mitigate known risks of the device. In October 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced several actions related to surgical stapler and staple regulation and safety. New Class II designation for surgical staplers increases safety with stronger FDA review, oversight.
Increased risk of infections and other adverse events is expected to hamper growth of the global surgical staplers market. For instance, the U.S. FDA is working on measures to help reduce the risk associated with surgical staplers and implantable staplers. In March 2019, FDA released a letter to point out such risks and to offer updated recommendations for the devices.
