By Type Analysis

The absorbable segment held the largest revenue share of over 55.0% in 2021 owing to its ability to provide temporary support to wounds till it heals and can withstand normal stress. Moreover, the demand for absorbable sutures is continuously rising, which can be attributed to their ability to degrade naturally. 

Non-absorbable sutures accounted for a lower market share in comparison to absorbable sutures due to their inability to degrade or breakdown. These sutures are majorly used in the stressful internal environment where absorbable sutures are not able to fulfill the desired requirement. 

By Filament Analysis

The multifilament segment dominated the market for surgical sutures with a revenue share of over 55.0% in 2021. The multifilament segment is also expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. This can be attributed to advantages associated with the multifilament segment such as better pliability, high tensile strength, and flexibility.

Monofilament sutures are difficult to handle and may cause crushing or crimping of the suture and lead to undesirable and premature suture failure during surgery due to their memory. The monofilament sutures are made up of materials such as monocryl, nylon, prolene, and polydioxanone.

By Application Analysis

The others segment dominated the market for surgical sutures and held a revenue share of over 35.0% in 2021. The cardiovascular surgery segment held the second-largest revenue share in 2021. This is owing to the high incidence of cardiac diseases, the presence of sufficient experts in the field, supportive reimbursement scenarios, and advancement in diagnostics. 

The orthopedic surgery segment emerged as the third-largest application segment in 2021 and is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period. This is due to the growing number of road accidents that are leading to a rise in the number of orthopedic injuries

By Regional Analysis

The North American region dominated the market for surgical sutures in 2021 with a revenue share of over 40.0% owing to the presence of local and key players, high cost of sutures as compared to other regions, supportive reimbursement scenario, rising government programs, and developed healthcare infrastructure. 

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. This is due to the growing geriatric population base that is more likely to go under surgery and increase in government spending on the healthcare infrastructure to meet the unmet needs in this region.
