Automated suturing devices are of two types: reusable automated suturing devices and disposable automated suturing devices. These devices are used in minimally invasive surgeries, open surgeries, and trauma cases. The global automated suturing devices is estimated to account for US$ 574.1 Mn in terms of value and 5,293,965 Units in terms of volume by the end of 2019 Global Automated Suturing Devices Market: Drivers Increasing development of novel coating for surgical suture is expected to boost growth of the global automated suturing devices market over the forecast period. For instance, in June 2019, researchers from University Medical Center and BG Trauma Center, Germany, reported development of a bioactive suture coating using a modified mRNA that was complexed with Viromer RED and incorporated into a solution of the biodegradable polymer poly-lactide-co-glycolide acid. Global Automated Suturing Devices Market: Restraints Lack of awareness regarding automated suturing devices and high cost of products is a major factor hampering growth of the global automated suturing devices market. Key Takeaways: The disposable automated suturing devices segment in the global automated suturing devices market was valued at US$ 430.9 in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 703.2 by 2027 at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is attributed to rapid increase in the incidents of accidents, surgeries, heart transplant and organ transplant. The minimally invasive surgeries segment held dominant position in the global automated suturing devices market in 2018, accounting for 73.9% share in terms of value, followed by open surgeries. The growth of minimally invasive surgeries segment is attributed to increase in demand for minimally invasive procedures along with development of technologically advance product development. Market Trends Increasing R&D in automated suturing devices is expected to boost growth of the global automated suturing devices market. For instance, in June 2019, researchers from Federal University of Campina Grande, Brazil, developed chitosan and of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine-loaded chitosan filaments in order to combine the GlcNAc pharmacological properties with the CS biological properties for use as absorbable suture materials. Key players in the market have segmented their target market on the basis of surgeries and offer value propositions accordingly. For example, EndoEvolution, LLC. majorly offers products for bariatric surgeries, whereas ovidien offers products for laparoscopic hysterectomy.
