Market Dynamics:

Driver: Rising demand for minimally invasive devices is a key revenue growth driving factor

Demand for advanced surgical devices is being driven by a rise in the number of surgical procedures performed throughout the world. The increasing elderly population, along with an increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, has resulted in an increase in the number of surgical procedures. The introduction of technologically advanced and minimally invasive surgical procedures is projected to boost demand for minimally invasive devices. The minimally invasive surgeries have become more acceptable than open surgical techniques because of their added advantages.  Advanced robotic systems provide surgeons with better control and vision during surgery, allowing them to execute safer, less invasive, and more precise surgeries. Minimally invasive robotic surgery has several advantages, including a lower risk of infection, minimal incisions, less pain, a shorter hospital stay, less scarring, a faster recovery time, and less blood loss. Robotic surgery, which is generally related to minimally invasive surgery, has been rapidly adopted by healthcare facilities in the United States for use in the treatment of various diseases.

Restraint: Negative influence of COVID-19 on device manufacturing companies is a key growth restraining factor

The surgical device industry was hampered as a result of a delay of elective procedures caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. The pandemic resulted in an unprecedented number of delayed and postponed elective surgical procedures in 2020, having a significant negative impact on the general surgery industry. The pandemic’s impact on healthcare systems is different depending on country and location. The first wave of the pandemic hit the United States in April 2020, resulting in a nearly 50% year-over-year drop in sales of laparoscopic access equipment including retractors and trocars, which are often used in general surgeries. Revenue from the surgical devices market is expected to increase over time as the number of general surgeries performed increases.

Key Takeaways
Device Type Outlook:                                                             

Based on device type, the surgical devices market has been segmented into the disposable surgical device, reusable surgical devices, and medical robotics & computer-assisted devices. Disposable surgical devices segment is expected to account for largest market share in the global surgical devices market over the forecast period. Most healthcare professionals are shifting from reusable devices to disposable devices. Patients are at increased risk of Surgical Site Infections (SSI), Healthcare-associated Infections (HAI), and cross-contamination if reusable surgical instruments are not properly sterilized. Increasing concerns regarding infections transmitted by surgical devices, as well as government legislation ensuring patient safety during surgical operations, are boosting demand for disposable surgical devices. Disposable surgical devices are sanitized and separately packed and are designed for single-use before being discarded. The increasing inclination towards disposable devices including needles, catheters, and syringes is expected to boost revenue growth of the segment during the forecast period. Because of the low risk of contamination and cost-effectiveness, disposable surgical devices are rapidly used in various healthcare settings and ambulatory surgical centers. Disposable surgical devices are rapidly being used in a wide range of procedures, including orthopedic surgery, laparoscopy, wound closure, and plastic or reconstructive surgery.

Product Outlook:                                                                     

Based on product, the surgical devices market has been segmented into surgical sutures and staples, auxiliary instruments, energy-based & powered instruments, and others.
