Growth in the hand instrument market will not match procedure number growth rates due to the popularity of reusable devices, which limits sales of disposables, and decreases in ASP across all segments. Reusable hand instruments are the most popular option, and their market will continue to grow as the number of laparoscopic procedures performed increases over the forecast period.

Hand instruments are hand-held surgical tools commonly inserted into the patient’s body through access devices. They are usually 5 mm to 10 mm in diameter, and can be purchased in sizes as small as 2.3 mm. Disposable and reposable scissors are preferred by surgeons because they ensure that the incision quality is not compromised by a dulled blade. Some hand instruments are capable of being hooked up to generators in order to use monopolar energy.
