LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global surgical sutures market report. This market research report also lists 19 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global surgical sutures market is fragmented with the presence of many global and local vendors offering a broad range of surgical sutures and suture-assist devices. They offer a wide array of suture materials with coatings and barbed structures with high knot security and tensile strength. The growth in this market is attributed by the growing technological advancements in suture materials and suture-assist devices and increase in the volume of surgeries with chronic disease conditions.

“As the market has reached maturation, especially in developed countries, the key players are focusing on inorganic growth strategies such as M&As to maximize their sales volume to overcome growing threat from local players and declining profit from surgical sutures. Some vendors are investing in R&D activities to revamp their existing product portfolio with natural absorbable surgical sutures, which are more advantageous than non-absorbable ones,” says Barath Palada, a lead analyst at Technavio for orthopedics and medical devices research.
