Suture Anchors Market:  Introduction

  • Suture Anchor is a fixation device used in arthroscopic repairs. Suture anchors are used where inadequate soft tissues are present that are unable to repair injuries in those areas.
  • Recent developments in suture anchor design and techniques have resulted in its increased usage for fixing musculoskeletal tissues of hips, elbow, hand, knee, foot, and ankle. Suture anchors are made of anchor, eyelet, and suture.
  • Anchors are inserted into the bone. These anchors are made of metal or biodegradable materials, while eyelet is a loop in the anchor from which suture passes. Suture can be made using absorbable or non-absorbable material.

Key Drivers and Restrain of Global Suture Anchors Market

  • Orthopedic injuries in geriatric population is expected to drive the suture anchor market during the forecast period. According to the United Nations University (UNU) estimates, the percentage of the world population above the age of 65 years is anticipated to increase from 9% in 2010 to 16% by 2050.
  • Surge in the adoption of minimal invasive surgeries and rise in awareness about suture anchor are factors that are projected to propel the global suture anchors market during the forecast period. Suture anchors are widely used in minimal invasive surgeries in orthopedics.
  • Demand for minimally invasive surgeries is increasing due to its benefits over open surgeries, such as minimal bleeding, lesser postoperative infection chances, fewer complications, shorter hospital stay, and early recovery
  • Varying degree of tissue reaction due to suture anchors could hamper market growth during the forecast period

Development of Advanced Suture Anchors to Offer Attractive Opportunities

  • Advancement in suture anchor design and technology will provide advanced and effective tissue reattachment. Various organizations are carrying out research and development for advanced suture anchors with better material offering higher advantage.
  • In 2016, Stryker launched the sonic anchor that operates through ultrasonic energy, which liquefy and flow into the cancellous bone

Hospitals End-user and Bio-composite Suture Anchor Material Segments to Witness Significant Growth

  • Bio-composite suture anchors are the most preferred material type. The demand for bio-composite suture anchors is expected to propel during the forecast period, as they provide excellent visibility of implants during surgeries. Moreover, these have fast insertion and improved fixation strength throughout the healing period.
  • Demand for suture anchor is increasing rapidly due to the rise in the number of hospitals and government support to offer improved health care services, especially in Asia Pacific, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East
  • According to the Central Bureau of Health Intelligence, the number of government hospitals in India increased from 4,571 in 2000 to 11,993 in 2011. Additionally, significant rise in the number of hospitals in Asia Pacific, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America is likely to boost the suture anchors market.
