Surgical scissors is an important surgical instrument. These are available in various types and shapes. These include operating scissors, bandage scissors, tenotomy scissors, dissecting scissors, plastic surgery scissors, iris scissors, stitch scissors, Metzenbaum scissors, and Mayo scissors. Generally, scissors are cutting instruments that have two blades joined together in the middle so that the sharp edges slide against each other. Medical scissors are specifically designed scissors for medical professionals for cutting skin tissue, sutures, bandages, and clothing.
A number of factors affect the growth of the surgical scissors market. Key factors include increase in demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures, development and advancement of surgical devices, and rise in global geriatric population. Other key drivers are increase in the number of cosmetic procedures, rise in incidence of chronic diseases, and high or sudden rise in the number of surgeries related to elderly population. The market is also witnessing restraints or challenges such as development of other non-invasive surgery technologies and intense competition among existing surgical scissors manufacturers.
The global surgical scissors market can be segmented based on product type, material type, usage, end-user, and region. In terms of product type, the global market can be classified into operating scissors, iris scissors, dissecting scissors, stitch scissors, fine serrated blade scissors, razor-micro cut scissors, light weight-delicate scissors, and others. Based on material type, the global surgical scissors market can be categorized into steel, titanium, ceramic, tungsten, and others. In terms of usage, the global market can be bifurcated into reusable surgical scissors and disposable surgical scissors.
