In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the top market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global surgical scalpel market:
- Increase in volume of surgeries
- Use of surgical scalpels in bariatric surgeries
Increase in volume of surgeries
The rise in the volume of surgeries along with an increase in chronic diseases contributes to the growth of the global surgical scalpel market. Surgical scalpels are an important tool in surgery as they help in making surgical incisions. With the increasing prevalence of diseases, the number of surgeries has increased globally. Further, the number of individuals affected by chronic diseases is constantly increasing due to unhealthy lifestyle such as living sedentary lives, drinking, smoking, and unhealthy eating habits. As per a CDC report, around 7.3 million cardiovascular surgeries and 1.2 million nervous system-related surgeries were performed in 2009. Varied surgical scalpels are used in surgeries, thereby driving their demand.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for orthopedics and medical devices research, “The growing geriatric population globally along with age-related diseases such as orthopedic disorders drives the global surgical scalpel market. Surgical scalpels are also used in cesarean sections. As per the CDC, 1,272,503 C-sections were performed in 2015 in the US, and the number is expected to increase in the coming years. Thus, the growing number of surgeries is and will be a major market growth driver.”
