The global surgical stapling devices market size was valued at USD 2.16 Billion in 2018 is projected to reach USD 6.11 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period.

Surgical stapling devices also referred to surgical staplers, are medical devices that are used for wound closure or closure of incision after a surgery is performed. The adoption of surgical stapler has witnessed a surge owing to the advantages the surgical stapler offers compared to the traditional suturing and stitching methods. Surgical staples are usually made of titanium, plastic or polylactide-polyglycolide copolymer. The type of staple is used based on patient preference and type of incision. Polylactide-polyglycolide copolymer staple is predominantly used in plastic surgeries to reduce the appearance of scar. According to the data published by OECD, estimated 200,000 cesarean section procedures were carried out in the year 2017 in UK.

Various types of product offerings of surgical staplers and the associated staples are proving beneficial for patients as well as healthcare professionals. The rising hospitalization and increasing number of people suffering from chronic diseases are estimated to boost the adoption of surgical stapling devices. The increasing number of bariatric surgeries are also projected to positively affect the surgical stapling devices market growth.

The surgical stapling devices market trends are highly affected by the diverse product offering by key players and higher adoption in a developed region. Surgical stapling devices are available in powered and manual formats to fit the doctor’s and patient’s medical needs and comfort. Key market players have launched technologically advanced surgical stapling devices to decrease the incision wound site, faster healing of incision and lower rate of malfunctioning.


“The introduction of technologically advanced surgical stapling devices is estimated to fuel the demand for surgical staplers market around the globe”

Technological advances in the surgical staplers and associated staples have predominantly impacted the adoption of surgical stapling devices among healthcare providers. The major players are focusing on reducing the diameter of the surgical stapling device to facilitate internal as well as external incision closure. Additionally, varying nob size and angle of the surgical stapling device enables the healthcare professional to perform laparoscopic surgeries with ease. These benefits are anticipated to boost the acceptance of surgical stapling devices compared to traditional suturing methods.

The introduction of powered surgical stapling device has facilitated to reduce the incision closure time after surgery leading to lower blood loss and further complication. It also enables the surgeon to reduce mechanical pressure during wound closure.

For instance, the powered surgical stapling device supports the patient during trauma injuries, where immediate wound closure is required to prevent blood loss. Clinically, the powered surgical stapling device has performed better in healing time and lower pain. These technological benefits offered by the surgical stapling devices are expected to drive the market growth.

“The increasing number of chronic diseases and surgeries are expected to drive the surgical stapling devices market growth”

Over the past decade, the developed and developing countries have witnessed a huge growth in the number of surgical procedures performed. The number of visits to ambulatory surgical centers has also experienced a hike over the past few years owing to increasing prevalence of chronic diseases like cancer. According to OECD statistics, an estimated 17,000 mastectomy in-patient cases were recorded in U.S for 2017.

Moreover, the increase in laparoscopic procedures opted by the patients estimated to augment the global surgical staplers market during the forecast years. The rising trend in laparoscopic surgeries is owed to smaller incision, lesser hospital stays and lower cost associated with the procedure. According to the statistical analysis by Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, and estimated 100,500 laparoscopic gastrointestinal surgeries were performed in ambulatory surgical centers in U.S for the year 2014.

These factors combine with other factors like the benefits of surgical staplers are anticipated to boost the adoption of surgical stapling devices. Additionally, increasing awareness regarding surgical staplers is anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities in untapped markets.
