Attributed to lockdowns in several countries, people were denied of, canceled, or postponed elective surgeries. There was a decline in demand for such products during the forecast period, leading to a reduction in market share. However, the market is expected to recover post-pandemic.

The market has experienced a considerable amount of industrial developments in its way. In June 2021, Curam, NUI Galway’s SFI Research Centre for Medical Devices, announced to collaborate with B.
