Global Surgical Drainage Devices Market $4.5 Billion by 2031

The global market for surgical drainage devices estimated to reach $4.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period, driven by increasing prevalence and surgical procedures for cardiovascular, neurological, thoracic, and orthopedic disorders, and technological advancements.

Global Surgical Drainage Devices Market

Surgical drains are catheters placed near the surgical wound to remove blood, pus, or other fluid and prevent it from accumulating in the body. They are active drains that maintain a negative pressure gradient. Surgical drains are implants that allow removal of fluid and/or gas from a wound or body cavity.

The general use of drains is discouraged. However, drains may be beneficial in specific surgical procedures. Surgical drains are used in a wide variety of different types of surgery. Examples include to prevent the accumulation of fluid (blood, pus and infected fluids), to prevent accumulation of air (dead space, and to characterize fluid (for example, early identification of anastomotic leakage).

The type of drainage system is based on the needs of a patient, type of surgery, type of wound, expected amount of drainage, and surgeon preference.

  • Surgical drains remove content of body organs, secretion of body cavities and tissue fluids such as blood, serum, lymph and other body fluid that accumulate in wound bed after surgical procedures. Therefore, reduction of pressure to surgical site as well as adjacent organs, nerves and blood vessels, enhances wound perfusion and wound healing. Reduction of pain is also achieved.
  • Suction drains are used in different types of surgery. The primary purpose of a suction drain includes preventing the collection of fluid (blood and infected fluids), preventing the accumulation of air (dead space), and characterization collected fluid (like identification of anastomotic leakage).

Standard surgical procedures that require a drain include chest pleural drainage, chest surgery, lymph node clearance procedure for malignancy, breast surgery, abdominal surgery, thyroid surgery, and plastic surgery flap procedures.

The global market for surgical drainage devices 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 drainage devices segmented by product [active (Jackson-Pratt drain, Hemovac drain, Blake drains, negative pressure wound therapy, Redivac drain, EVD & lumbar drain, chest tube, others), passive (Penrose drain, others), application (thoracic and cardiovascular surgery, neurosurgical procedure, abdominal surgery, orthopedics, others), end user (hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, specialty clinics), and geography.

  • Based on the broader products category, the active drainage devices segment accounted for the largest share of the total surgical drainage products market, and also anticipated expand at the fastest CAGR throughout the forecast period.
    • Active drains are thought to be more effective due to their ability to assist adherence of skin flaps and the minimization of bacterial migration.
    • The active drains use intermittent or continuous negative pressure to pull fluid or gas from a wound or body cavity, whereas the passive drains rely on gravity, body movement, pressure differentials, or overflow to move fluid or gas. Typically, passive drains are open systems and active drains are closed systems because they rely on negative pressure that is created by the drain.
      • Negative pressure increases the efficiency of active over passive drains, enables placement of the drain exit in any position, can remove fluid against gravity if necessary, and can be used to collapse dead space. The negative pressure of active drains can be continuous or intermittent.
  • In terms of applications, the thoracic and cardiovascular surgery segment dominated the global surgical drainage products market, owing to an increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases worldwide.
    • The use of postsurgical drains has a long history in thoracic and abdominal surgery. In orthopedics these devices have been used to decrease local edema, lessen the potential for hematoma or seroma formation, and to aid in the efflux of infection.
      • Postoperative wound drains make for neat postoperative period with less tissue swelling. There were no statistically significant differences between the drained and undrained wounds in terms of infection rates, hematoma or seroma formation.
