Global Surgical Devices Market
Surgical devices refer to the medical devices used to cutting, dilating, grasping, holding, and fulgurate the body tissues during the surgical procedures. Some surgical devices are designed for general use in surgery, while others are designed for a specific procedure or surgery. Surgical devices are used for various surgical procedures such as reconstructive and plastic surgeries and wound closures. These are commonly used in various therapeutic areas such as urology, neurology, cardiovascular medicine, orthopaedics, obstetrics, and gynaecology, etc. Over time, many different kinds of surgical instruments and tools have been invented. Due to technological advancements majority of the surgical devices has computerized. The surgical devices categorized into different tools like powered devices, mechanical cutters, graspers, retractors, distractors, tubes and suction tips, measurement tools, specula or dilators, tyndallers and among others
The global surgical devices market is expected to grow at a significant CAGR due to increase in the global population, and rise in the prevalence of various chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes etc. Rise in demand for surgical tools due to increase in surgical procedures, increase in healthcare expenditure, increase in demand for plastic and reconstructive surgery, and rise in technological development leading to product innovations are the major factors fuel the growth of the market over the forecast period. Moreover, the favourable government policies for the manufacturing of surgical devices, the presence of numerous risk factors, such as hypertension, smoking, obesity, and diabetes, has led to the high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and using of robotic systems might fuel the global market over the forecast period.
However, stringent government regulations, price competition in the industry and lack of proper reimbursement for surgical equipment may hamper the general surgical devices market growth over the forecast period. Similarly, a rise in preference for advanced wound closure materials like fibrin sealants, implementation of acts like Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) in U.S., and Side effects with the products that lead to product recalls might hinder the growth of the market.

Geographically, surgical devices market is in a flourishing stage with several local, and international players operating in the market. Increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases such as neurological disorders (according to World Federation of Neurology statistics, 12 in every 100 patients die due to neurological disorders), and rise in the number of road accidents (according to Association for Safe International Road Travel, nearly 2.35 million people are injured every year due to road accidents) has led to the increase in the demand for surgical devices.
Launching of new products is the popular strategy followed by various medical devices companies in the global general surgical devices market, which has helped the manufacturers to gain substantial market share. For instance, in October 2013, Zimmer had launched three products for minimally invasive surgery, namely Viewline Retractor System, Tube Retraction System and Posterior Instrument Set which are used in microdiscectomy procedures. Similarly, innovation of modern technologies like minimally invasive surgery instruments, and robotic and power assisted equipment are the key factors fueling the growth of surgical equipment market. For instance, in 2011, Intuitive Surgical, Inc., has developed the da Vinci Surgical System provided a breakthrough platform for the robotic-assisted surgeries.
Geographically, the surgical devices market has been segmented into following regions Viz. North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America dominates the market owing to rise in a number aging population, increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases in U.S. such as cancer, neurological disorders, and diabetes etc. The innovation of novel technologies and reimbursement scenario might boost the market in North America. However, Europe holds a significant share in market owing to the favourable regulatory framework, change in lifestyle, and increase in disposable income among consumers. Moreover, Asia-pacific surgical devices market is expected to substantial growth over forecasting period owing to increase in the medical tourism in Asian countries, rise in unmet healthcare needs, growing healthcare infrastructure in Asia Pacific region.
