Report Overview

The global surgical stapling devices market size was valued at USD 4.88 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.33% from 2023 to 2030. The market is expected to exhibit lucrative growth opportunities in the coming years owing to the increasing preference for staples over sutures. With technological advances, several market players are commercializing staplers used for endoscopic surgeries. These devices find applications across various branches of medicine, such as gynecology, thoracic, and gastrointestinal-related surgeries as well as tissue & wound management procedures. The demand for surgical stapling is expected to increase owing to the rise in bariatric procedures and implementation of advanced technology to perform endoscopic procedures. In addition, the introduction of powered surgical devices and growing need for tissue & wound management would further support the market growth and acceptance of surgical staplers.

 Germany surgical stapling devices market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

Initially, sutures were widely used for wound closure surgeries. However, the introduction of staples has gradually outpaced the suture market due to the several advantages. Apart from being a tedious process, sutured sites may exhibit wound leakage and separation, whereas surgical staplers offer better speed, accuracy, and efficient wound closure.

With technological advancements, several market players are commercializing staplers used for endoscopic surgeries. These devices find application across various branches of medicine, such as gynaecology, thoracic, gastrointestinal-related surgeries, and tissue & wound management procedures.

Moreover, in developing countries, such as India and China, surgical staplers are widely used for bariatric surgeries. Covidien plc and Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. offering titanium stomach staples, reported that obesity-related surgeries in India have doubled in 2013, and hence, the number of bariatric procedures has increased in the country.

Product Insights

Manual surgical staplers were used along with scalpels, forceps, and scissors. With rising demand and increasing frequency of surgeries, powered stapling devices are expected to be the fastest growing product segment over the forecast period. These powered surgical staplers address the problem of fatigue in doctors due to the high procedure volume in hospital emergency wards. Thus, such benefits offered by manual surgical staplers is anticipated to foster the segment growth.

The major advantage offered by powered stapling involves the ease of wound closure without the need of manual firing force. The powered surgical stapling devices are available in various sizes that offer medical practitioners greater choice when choosing a circular stapling or powered linear system to perform complex surgical procedures. Increasing adoption of powered surgical stapling devices is predicted to propel market growth.

Type Insights

Based on the type of material used, there are two major types: disposable and reusable. The disposable segment is expected to grow at a rapid rate over the forecast period as a result of heightened concerns over communicable infections. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) promotes the use of disposable devices including disposable surgical stapling devices and provides protocols to prevent the spread of pathogens. Regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have also stated some measures to ensure that set protocols for the sterilization of medical devices are strictly followed in order to avoid infections.

Reusable segment held significant market share in 2022. Reusable surgical stapling devices can be used on several patients after sterilization process. Introduction of surgical stapling devices along with absorbable staplers is estimated to fuel the segment growth during the forecast period. High cost associated with reusable stapling devices is predicted to impede the segment growth.

End-use Insights

The End-use segment for the surgical stapling devices market is bifurcated into hospitals and ambulatory centers. Hospitals segment was identified as the largest end-use segment in the year 2022 whereas, ambulatory centres segment is anticipated to display the highest growth over the forecast period. The steady growth of the ambulatory centers segment can be attributed to factors such as scarce economic resources and the shortage of hospital beds, especially in underdeveloped and developing economies.

A major trend in hospitals suggests a shift toward clinical efficiency models, which includes the introduction of robotic technology in surgery. Robotic surgeries improve the outcome of minimally invasive surgeries. The hospitals segment is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period owing to favourable reimbursement scenario for various surgeries.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest market share owing to the use of advanced technologies and non-invasive methods in the increasing number of total surgeries performed. Other reasons for huge market share are the highest obesity rate in this region, the local presence of global players, and FDA approval for non-invasive surgeries. With recent developments in minimally invasive surgeries, special devices are designed for laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgeries, which includes the use of surgical stapling. It has become the responsibility of surgeons to acquire the prerequisite knowledge of stapling devices

Surgical Stapling Devices Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market with a CAGR of over 9.74% due to the presence of a large patient pool in economies such as India, China, and Japan.
