Surgical Snares Market Size

Surgical Snares Market size was valued at around USD 1.1 billion in 2022 and is projected to register over 6.9% CAGR between 2023 and 2032. The increasing prevalence of chronic conditions including gastrointestinal disorders and colorectal cancer are expected to spearhead the business growth.

Surgical Snares Market

Factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic kidney diseases, the growing aging population affected by chronic conditions, and increased patient awareness are also contributing to the market's growth. Also, the increasing number of ambulatory surgery centers that provide polypectomy procedures and the growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries is contributing to the surgical snares market expansion.

Surgical snares are medical devices used in endoscopic procedures to remove abnormal tissue or foreign objects from the body. They are thin, flexible wires with a loop at one end that can be used to grasp and remove tissue or objects from the gastrointestinal tract, bladder, or other body cavities. Surgical snares are commonly used in a variety of endoscopic procedures, including colonoscopies, esophagogastroduodenoscopies (EGDs), and bronchoscopies. They are often preferred over traditional surgical techniques because they are minimally invasive in nature.

However, the clinical complications associated with the use of snares might negatively impact the surgical snares market growth in the coming years. Surgical snares are used in hot snare polypectomy (HSP) that has been the conventional approach for polypectomy. Although there are several risk factors associated with post-procedural bleeding, perforation, and post-polypectomy syndrome.

COVID-19 Impact

The recent outbreak of COVID-19 had negatively influenced the surgical snares market revenue surge, specifically during the first half of 2020. The incremental demand for COVID-19 testing has had a significant impact on the surgical services for other diseases. In the early stages of the pandemic, COVID-19 had a high incidence and mortality rate, causing people to avoid seeking other medical treatments & diagnostic procedures in healthcare facilities. Many patients delayed endoscopic and other medical procedures because of the risk of infection.

Additionally, movement restrictions and disruptions in the supply chain have led to challenges in product distribution, further impacting the revenue of several industry players in fiscal year 2020. The developments, majorly defined by the reduced endoscopic procedural volume negatively hampered the market growth in 2020. However, the reduced incidence of COVID-19 cases and collaborated efforts undertaken by the major market players are set to benefit the market growth. The companies operating in the industry entered into collaboration and distribution agreements to effectively manage their activities post-pandemic which has further influenced business revenues. Thus, owing to these attributes the market is projected to follow trajectory growth in the foreseeable future.

Surgical Snares Market Trends

The increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders, colorectal cancer, Crohn’s disease, etc. is projected to drive the demand for minimally invasive procedures including polypectomy that employs surgical snares, thereby propelling the industry growth. Colorectal cancer is amongst the most common type of cancer reported in the U.S.
