Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/29/2018 -- The global Surgical Equipment Market is envisaged in a report by Transparency Market Research (TMR) to find a select group of companies exhibiting their dominance over each segment. This could be evidenced with the command taken by Covidien plc, B. Braun Melsungen AG, and Ethicon, Inc. over the surgical sutures and staples market.

The largely fragmented market is said to be distributed among local and multinational vendors.
By the end of 2019, the global surgical equipment market is foreseen by TMR to earn an around US$11.28 bn. With respect to type of product, surgical sutures and staples accounted for a larger share of the market in the recent years. However, market analysts prognosticate this segment to lose its share to electrosurgical devices. In terms of regional segmentation, the market is foretold to testify the rise of Europe and North America as dominating segments. However, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World are expected to post a high growth rate.

Developing regions such as Latin America and Asia Pacific are predicted to create tall demand for surgical equipment because of swelling public investment in the healthcare industry. Other factors such as aggressively expanding elderly population, advent of novel products with better performances, and increasing count of surgical procedures are projected to significantly augment demand in the world surgical equipment market.
One end of the international surgical equipment market could be blocked by rising preference for medical sealants such as glues and other wound closure materials.

Price competition in the market and product recalls due to side effects of certain surgical equipment are expected to hamper growth in the near term. Other restraints such as enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) could also pose challenges to the market.
