Global Sternal Closure Systems Market: Overview

Sternal closure systems are intended for use in the stabilization as well as fixation of fractures of the anterior chest wall. The systems are used in sternal fixation following sternotomy and sternal reconstructive surgical procedures in order to promote fusion. Factors such as technological innovation in sternotomy techniques, rise in the patient population, increase in the number of surgical procedures, a large geriatric population undergoing open heart surgery, and increase in the availability of medical reimbursements in developed countries are expected to propel demand for sternal closure systems during the forecast period. Moreover, there is an increase in investment in public health care infrastructure in developing countries, owing to a rise in the noncommunicable disease burden and injuries. This is anticipated to boost the number of surgical procedures in developing regions.

Global Sternal Closure Systems Market: Segmentation

The global sternal closure systems market can be segmented based on product, material, procedure, and region. Based on product, the sternal closure systems market can be classified into closure devices and bone cement. In terms of material, the global sternal closure systems market can be divided into stainless steel, PEEK, and titanium products. Based on procedure, the global market can be classified into median sternotomy, hemisternotomy, and bilateral thoracosternotomy.

In terms of product, the closure device segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid CAGR during the forecast period, owing a rise in the number of complex cardiovascular surgeries as well as an increase in the availability of medical reimbursements across developed markets.
