Global Surgical Consumables Market $25.8 Billion by 2031

The global market for surgical consumables projected to reach $25.8 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period, driven by increasing number of surgical procedures, growing demand for disposable medical supplies, increased incidence of lifestyle diseases across the world, and easy availability of wide range of surgical consumables.

  • The surgical consumables play such a critical role in patient care and in protecting staff, it’s important to maintain a robust supply chain for medical consumables. The COVID-19 pandemic has only highlighted the importance of consumables, with infection surges leading to widespread shortages of PPE and testing supplies.
Global Surgical Consumables Market

As the medical field continues to grow and develop, new custom medical devices are needed to help patients better recover from surgeries. Surgical consumables are items that are used during surgery or in the postoperative period. Surgical consumables include gloves, gowns, gauze, bandages, masks, and drapes. Surgical consumables are essential to prevent the patients and the surgeons from infection during surgery. Surgical consumables are all disposable items.

  • Surgical consumables can help to improve the efficiency and accuracy of a surgical procedure. By providing appropriate tools and equipment, surgical consumables can help to reduce the time needed for surgery, as well as minimize the chance of complications. Optimal use of disposable supplies is necessary to reduce the cost and environmental burden of hand surgery care.
    • Surgical consumable products are largely used by hospitals, and key buying criteria are product quality, surgeon preference and cost. These consumables are critical for success of every surgery as they play a key role in the execution of the surgical procedure, reduce the risk of infection, and help wound closure and healing.

The global market for surgical consumables research report provides market size ($million 2021 to 2031), market share analysis, growth trends and forecast (CAGR%, 2024 to 2031).

The global market for surgical consumables segmented by surgical consumables market by product (surgical sutures, surgical staplers, ligation clips, surgical sealants, hernia meshes, wound care, surgical gloves), application (cardiovascular, neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, plastic and reconstructive surgery, wound closure, others), and geography.

  • Based on the products, the surgical sutures segment accounted for the largest share of the total surgical consumables market, owing to its advantages in easy to handle, offer a minimal risk of infection and are designed specifically to tolerate wound changes. The sutures also provide appropriate strength and secure knots, can tolerate wound changes like swelling and recoil, cause minimal inflammation or infection risk, are easily visible, and are relatively inexpensive.
    • Most surgical or traumatic wounds require skin closure of some kind. Most commonly, this closure is done by suturing, as opposed to staples or surgical glues. Suturing offers advantages like low dehiscence rates and greater tensile strength than other closure methods.
      • The market largely consists of synthetic sutures followed by natural sutures and catgut sutures, which are significantly lower priced products and account for a higher volume market share. The market is shifting to synthetic sutures due to superior benefits, driving pricing growth in this market.
  • On the other hand, the surgical staplers segment predicted to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. The surgical staplers and staples may be used in place of sutures. They can close large wounds or incisions more quickly and be less painful than stitches for patients. They are often used in minimally invasive surgery.
    • They can also be used to close wounds in areas where skin is tight against bone, in operations to remove organs or to reconnect parts of internal organs. Surgical staplers for internal use are used to deliver staples to tissues inside the body during surgery for removing part of an organ (resection), cutting through and sealing organs and tissues (transection), and creating connections between structures (anastomoses).
      • Surgical staplers and staples for external use are used outside the body to close large wounds or surgical cuts on a patient’s skin or scalp. Advantages of surgical staplers and staples include quick placement, minimal tissue reaction, low risk of infection, and strong wound closure.
        • These products are largely sold to large hospitals with focus on specialty surgeries such as oncology, orthopedic and trauma procedures etc.

The global market for surgical consumables market research report is further segmented by geography into North America (U.S., Canada), Europe (U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Rest of EU), Asia Pacific (Japan, China, India, Rest of APAC), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, Rest of LA), and Rest of the World.

  • In terms of geographical distribution, the North America region dominated the total market for surgical consumables, followed by Europe region, attributed to sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, growing elderly population, increasing volume of inpatient treatments requiring surgical procedures, and presence of multinational companies, which have traditionally dominated this market and largely provide high-cost premium products.
    • However, the Asia Pacific region estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR in the coming years, mainly due to growing number of patients requiring surgical procedures, improving access to healthcare in developing markets, higher GDP growth, increasing disposable incomes, and availability of low-cost surgical disposable products.
      • The presence of smaller domestic manufacturers across emerging markets sells low-cost products with widely varying quality standards. Emerging economies have a significantly higher volume market share, but lower value contribution due to lower product pricing.
