The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the market for vessel sealing devices with low demand and sales. This resulted from supply chain challenges, deferred or canceled elective procedures, reduced sales and marketing activities, and movement restrictions due to lockdowns. Medtronic for instance reported a negative impact of COVID-19 on its fourth-quarter financial results ending April 24, 2020. The company was also impacted by the postponed elective and semi-elective procedures that use Medtronic’s products. The reluctance of people for undergoing non-COVID-19 emergency procedures affected the company’s emergent product lines.

In its 2020 annual report, Intuitive Surgical reported a 3.0% decrease in revenue compared to 2019, owing to constraints in staff and ICU capacity in hospitals and deferred surgical procedures. The company reported a 19.0% year-on-year decline in procedures during Q2 2020 with a gradual recovery in Q3 and Q4. Intuitive Surgical estimated that about 1.25 million surgeries were performed during the year. The company, however, reported growth in its surgical energy portfolio, with its E-100 generator, SynchroSeal system, and vessel sealers lineup gaining customer acceptance. The company planned to expand its regional presence outside the U.S., advance its product launches, and extend economic, clinical, and hospital-by-hospital validation in key countries and procedures, as part of its 2021 strategy.

Rising product improvement is a key driver contributing to the growth of the market for vessel sealing devices. This is due to the growing demand for vessel sealing devices that offer better consistency, utility, reliability, efficiency, and safety. According to an article published in the International Journal of Scientific Research, an ideal vessel sealing device is effective on vessels having a diameter less than or equal to 7mm, produces minimal thermal spread, works quickly, is reusable, and produces consistent results. Market players are also involved in integrating these devices into robotic surgical systems. For example, Intuitive Surgical’s SynchroSeal is compatible with the da Vinci surgical system and enables the user to quickly seal and cut vessels up to 5 mm in diameter.

The market is expected to regain its previous growth and demonstrate a year-on-year growth rate of 6.4% from 2020 to 2021 and 6.7% from 2021 to 2022.

Intuitive Surgical announced a 3% decrease in its annual revenue from 2019 to 2020 due to issues in ICU capacity in hospitals and deferred surgical procedures.

In its strategy for 2021, Intuitive Surgical plans to expand its market presence outside the U.S. and advance its product portfolio.

Patients were reluctant to go through non-essential COVID-19 procedures, which further impacted the market.



Elective surgeries are anticipated to return to pre-COVID numbers as the underlying causes remain unchanged. The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) has released several guidelines for resuming elective surgery. The American College of Surgeons has also released a roadmap for resuming elective surgeries in collaboration with the ASA, Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses, and the American Hospital Association. There is also a growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries due to associated benefits such as smaller incisions, reduced pain and scarring, and faster recovery times. These factors are estimated to contribute to the growth of the market for vessel sealing devices during the forecast period. 

Application Insights

The laparoscopic surgery segment dominated the market for vessel sealing devices and accounted for the largest revenue share of 62.73% in 2022. The segment is also estimated to witness a CAGR of 9.7% in the coming years. The key factor contributing to this growth includes a growing preference for and rising number of minimally invasive surgeries and awareness of the benefits of laparoscopic surgeries over open surgeries. Furthermore, a favorable reimbursement scenario for laparoscopic surgeries in the U.S. is expected to boost the market.

Awareness about these surgeries is also increasing owing to their advantages, further aiding the market growth. According to a 2020 retrospective study performed by the Department of Surgery, Cleveland Medical Center, in the U.S. the number of open procedures performed by general surgery residents has been on the decline since 2000 with a growing preference for minimally invasive surgery. This trend is expected to continue fueling the demand for vessel sealing devices.

The general surgery segment is expected to grow at a favorable rate as it is the preferred option in some types of surgeries, such as appendectomies and sigmoidectomies. This preference can be attributed to the high success rate of these surgeries as compared to laparoscopy.
