Surgical staplers are also widely used during bariatric surgeries, which could further provide impetus to the market. Growing prevalence of obesity and sedentary lifestyle has grown the need for bariatric surgeries, thus driving the need for surgical staplers.

Rising Preference for Minimally Invasive Surgery to Fuel Demand in Surgical Staplers Market 

Technological advancements in the healthcare sector has grown various opportunities and has enhanced the capabilities in this sector. One such technology is minimally invasive surgeries that have gained huge traction in the last few years. Minimally invasive surgeries includes laparoscopic procedures, general surgeries, flexible endoscopic procedures, and colorectal surgeries that are performed often on the patients across the globe. Furthermore, the demand for minimally invasive surgeries is increasing because they help in fast recovery, involves minimal complications, the patient feel less pain, and it also reduced the risk of infection.  

Research and Development activities Key Strategy used by Leading Players

Few player who dominate the global surgical staplers market hold 80% of market share. Due to the dominance of these players, the surgical staplers market is consolidated in nature. The big companies in the surgical staplers market are Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. (Ethicon Inc.)Grena Ltd., Covidien Plc, Purple Surgical International Ltd., Golden Stapler Surgical Co. Ltd, Victor Medical Instruments Co., Ltd., and Dickinson and Company. Leading companies are also making efforts in resercah and development to develop better quality product. For instance, Ethicon announced the outcome of the studies carried out to compare two products in early 2017, where it compared Medtronic’s ENDO GIA Manual Staplers and Ethicon’s ECHELON FLEX Powered Staplers. The results showed that Ethicon’s product was related with clinical and monitory benefits and reduced rate of complications related to bleeding. In the same time, Medtronic released its new stapling system, Signia Stapling System. This was the newest addition to the firm's minimally invasive procedure product portfolio.
