Ligation is the process of closing an incision during a surgery or to join separated organs or tissue parts. These devices are used for open surgical procedures as well as laparoscopic operations. Ligation clips are implantable devices made from non-resorbable polymers, which are biocompatible, prevent bacterial growth, and are structurally stable over time. Polymer ligation clips are primarily used by urologists for ligation of renal hilum vessel during nephrectomy. Ligation clips are also made from titanium; however, these clips could slip from the original position. Key advantage of titanium clips is minimum injury to blood vessel and tissue. These two types of clips are used for ligation of varicose veins.
Increase in diseases treated with minimally invasive procedures is projected to drive the global ligation devices market. Additionally, rise in prevalence of cardiovascular and urological diseases is anticipated to propel the global ligation devices market during the forecast period. However, high cost acts as a major restraint of the global ligation devices market. According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke account for 17.9 million deaths globally each year. According to the World Health Organization (2015), an estimated 1.2 million people have succumbed to kidney failure since 2005. In August 2015, Symmetry Surgical, Inc. acquired Vesocclude Medical, LLC, including the titanium ligation clips and appliers portfolio. This acquisition enabled the company to strengthen its sales network in the U.S. and internationally.
The global ligation devices market can be segmented based on material type, application, end-user, and region. In terms of type of material, the ligation devices market can be bifurcated into polymer ligation clips and titanium ligation clips. The polymer ligation clips segment is projected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. In terms of application, the global ligation devices market can be divided into gynecological, urological, cardiovascular, and others. The cardiovascular segment dominated the global market in 2017 due to rise in prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. In terms of end-user, the ligation devices market can be classified into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and others. Rise in prevalence of cardiovascular and urological diseases is anticipated to propel the hospitals segment from 2018 to 23026.
The global ligation devices market can be segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the global market in 2017. The ligation devices market in the region is driven by rise in prevalence of urological diseases such as chronic kidney diseases and cardiovascular diseases. According to the National Center for Chronic Diseases Prevention and Health Promotion, the U.S. had 30 million people suffering from chronic kidney diseases in 2017. The ligation devices market in Europe is driven by rise in prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. According to the European Heart Network AISBL, cardiovascular diseases account for 3.9 million deaths in Europe every year. In 2015, 85 million peoples had cardiovascular diseases and 11.3 million new cases was recorded. The ligation devices market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to rise in prevalence of cardiovascular diseases.
The global ligation devices market is highly fragmented, with presence of large number of players. Key players operating in the global ligation devices market are CooperSurgical, Inc., Medtronic, Johnson & Johnson, Conmed Corporation, Teleflex Incorporated, Olympus Corporation, Grena Think Medical, Applied Medical Resources Corporation, GENICON, and B. Braun Melsungen AG.
