Natural healing is a slow process that increases the possibilities of wound contamination and bacterial infection. This, in confluence with the growing number of individuals undergoing surgical procedures, represents one of the major factors positively influencing the demand for surgical sutures. Moreover, the rising prevalence of arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), and other chronic disorders in a significant part of the geriatric population is driving the demand for surgeries across the globe. In addition, the increasing number of fatal road accidents is fueling the adoption of surgical sutures. Apart from this, leading market players are introducing surgical sutures that promote scar-free wound healing and minimize ischemia, excess wound tension, and tissue injury. These sutures are gaining traction in facial and other aesthetic plastic surgery procedures, including mastopexy, brachioplasty, platysmaplasty, reduction mammoplasty, and brow, midface, and lateral neck suspension. This, along with the emerging trend of minimally invasive cosmetic plastic surgeries on account of inflating income levels and the growing consciousness among individuals about physical appearances, is projected to contribute to the growth of the market.
