Road and other accidents are also anticipated to raise the demand for surgical instruments in the coming years. Accidents are one of the leading causes of severe injuries. Based on statistics from Association for Safe International Road Travel, around 2.35 million people get injured every year due to such accidents. As a result, there is a high demand for wound closure surgical procedures, which in turn is expected to raise the demand for surgical tools.
Surgical sutures and staplers held the largest market share in 2016 owing to their high cost and huge application in wound closure surgeries. Electrosurgical equipment is anticipated to witness attractive growth over the years due to growing trend toward MIS. Plastic and reconstructive surgeries are expected to show lucrative CAGR in the coming years due to increasing concern for esthetics among women. In 2016, North America dominated the market due to the availability of skilled surgeons and technologically advanced surgical tools in the United States. Asia-Pacific is expected to show fastest growth during 2017–2025 owing to the rising number of road accident cases in India.
