The damaged tissue layers must be covered to preserve the functional integrity of the organisms. Surgical sutures, a key part of the wound healing process, are devices used during a surgical procedure to hold the tissues together post-surgery. Most of the wound closures are done with the help of sutures. The choice of surgical suture depends on various factors such as the thickness of the skin, location of lesions, and the tension exerted on the skin. Suture materials are considered to be of utmost importance for quick tissue repair. The material used for sutures can be absorbable or non-absorbable. Sutures are thus a strand of material that ligates the blood vessels together and assist in healing the damaged tissues.

The rising number of surgical procedures that propel the demand for effective wound closure devices and the introduction of advanced surgical sutures with effective tensile strength are expected to augment the growth of the global surgical sutures market. Moreover, the investment by key companies in developing efficient wound closure devices is anticipated to boost the expansion of surgical sutures Industry during 2018-2025.
However, rising preference for minimally invasive surgeries in the developed countries and the availability of alternative wound closure devices are estimated to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Absorbable Sutures to Account for Highest Market Share by 2025
The two types of surgical sutures are absorbable and non-absorbable surgical sutures. Among these, absorbable sutures are projected to account for maximum share in the global market during the forecast period, which is attributable to the ability of absorbable sutures to get metabolized in the body that is leading to its rising adoption by patient population as well as surgeons. The emerging regional manufacturers of absorbable sutures is anticipated to boost this segment by the end of 2025.
