Suturing is one of the most common and longstanding practices in medicine, so despite the increase in other wound closure devices, the suture market is expected to continue growing. However, the improved simplicity and ease-of-use of staplers and skin closure systems will result in sutures share of the wound closure market declining marginally by 2025. Mesh and cyanoacrylate-based skin closure systems and zip surgical skin closure systems are both growing rapidly, with the two highest CAGRs in the wound closure market. Both of these products make up only a small portion of the overall market, as they are relatively new.
Wounds resulting from open surgery, or other traumas, may be closed with a number of devices. Sutures are the oldest form of wound closure devices. Staplers, ligating clip appliers, strips and tissue adhesives compete against sutures with their time-saving benefits, ease of use and greater aesthetics. The closure device market has been both fueled and limited by laparoscopic procedures. The reduced exposed area means that fewer closure devices are needed. However, more specialized delivery mechanisms are needed in order to access internal tissues through trocar sites. Additionally, wound closure devices continue to be required for closing incisions made by trocars.
