Report Description


General surgery devices are used for a wide variety of diseases. These devices are employed for routine procedures or in complicated surgeries. Over the time, several innovative devices have been invented for serving a particular purpose with more ease while performing surgeries and for reducing discomfort after the surgery. General surgery devices are used in gastrointestinal problems, trauma and burn care, hernias, and breast cancer. These devices are employed in several sub-specialties of general surgery such as orthopedics, obstetrics, neurology, urology, cardiovascular, and gynecology. The key purpose of general surgery devices is to cut, clamp, grasp, tie, and spread anatomical parts of the human body during surgical procedures. These devices are deployed primarily in hospitals, small clinics, and health care centers.

The increasing number of geriatric patients worldwide, awareness among patients about different surgeries and minimally invasive procedures, technological developments in surgical procedures such as robotic and power-assisted systems are factors likely to fuel the general surgery devices market in the next few years. One of the technological developments is that the market is witnessing preference to minimally invasive procedures and use of robotics and computer-assisted devices, thereby reducing time required for surgery as well as complications. This has opened new avenues for growth of the global general surgery devices market. Market players are competing with one another with new product launches, expanding geographic presence, and innovative and educational offerings. However, the market is also facing challenges such as development of other non-invasive surgery technologies and intense competition among existing manufacturers of general surgery devices. Moreover, factors such as product recalls, government regulations regarding reduction in overall health care costs, and subsequent increase in bulk purchasing through INHs (Integrated Health Networks) and GPOs (group purchasing organizations) are restraining the market.

The general surgery market have been segmented by product, application, and geography.  In terms of product, it can be segmented into disposable surgical supplies, reusable, minimally invasive surgery instruments, energy-based and power devices, adhesion prevention products, and medical robotics and computer-assisted surgery devices. Among them, the disposable surgical supplies segment leads the market, due to rising demand for disposable needles, syringes, and catheters.

Geographically, the general surgery devices market can be classified into North America (U.S. and Canada), Europe (Germany, France, the U.K., etc.), Asia Pacific (Australia, China, Japan, and India), Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The emerging markets in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa are expected to witness robust growth during the forecast period. North America leads the global market, holding the maximum share. This can be attributed to strong policy support of governments, favorable reimbursement policies, and the increase in demand for surgeries led by lifestyle-related diseases in the region. However, in terms of growth rate, Asia Pacific is likely to surpass all other regions in the next few years, due to the increasing expenditure on health care in developing countries of the region. Some of the prominent markets in Asia Pacific are India, Japan, China, Australia, and Singapore.
