Increasing prevalence of different chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and neurological disorders, and rising number of accidents and trauma emergencies, are key factors driving market revenue growth. Surgical instruments are portable tools used by physicians and other health care professionals to change, hold, clamp, cut, retract, dilate biological tissue, or provide access for observing it. In addition, these tools are used to get access to soft tissue, dissect lesions, or remove bone. Some of the most commonly used surgical instruments are scalpels, scissors, forceps, clamps, and retractors. These instruments come in a variety of sizes and are often constructed of carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, plastic, and polymers.

In the field of surgical instruments, there has been a significant growth in cost-effective medical equipment and high-performance components for greater productivity and efficiency during the past few years. OEMs have used medical-grade plastics as a realistic, inventive alternative to traditional metal equivalent to provide easier processability with equivalent or enhanced functionality. Modern surgical equipment needs plastics with superior strength, stiffness, and mechanical performance to compete with and outperform conventional metals. Plastics provide both disposable and reusable surgical tools with exceptionally high tensile and flexural strength, allowing for superior stiffness and mechanical stress resistance. These high-performance medical-grade resins retain their toughness and impact resistance after severe surgical operations, lengthy chemical exposure, and high-temperature steam sterilizing techniques. Medical-grade plastics are rapidly becoming the material of choice for a variety of surgical instruments. Moreover, use of plastic in surgical instruments offers various advantages including reduced cost, enhanced ergonomics, and enhanced functionality. Polymers provide remarkable sterilization resilience as well as chemical resistance, allowing reusable surgical tool plastics to withstand over a thousand cycles of steam sterilization or autoclaving without suffering substantial performance degradation.

The CDC Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI) Prevalence Survey found that inpatient surgeries caused about 110,800 Surgical Site Infections (SSIs). Based on HAI data results for 2020 that were published in NHSN’s HAI Progress Report, SSI Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) for all NHSN operative procedure categories decreased by about 5% in 2020 compared to the previous year. In 2020, it was said that SIR related to Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) NHSN operative procedure categories had dropped by about 5% compared to the previous year. In both public and private hospitals, total frequency of surgical site infections was 9.9, which were found in 13.4% of public hospitals and 6.5% of private hospitals.
