U.S. Ophthalmic Sutures Market size to exceed $543.5Mn by 2032

  • Published Date: March 16, 2023

U.S. Ophthalmic Sutures Market size is expected to reach USD 543.5 million by 2032, as per a new research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising occurrence of eye diseases including cataract, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy have led to a rise in surgical intervention in the U.S., thereby boosting minimally invasive treatment demand, which incorporates the use of ophthalmic sutures. Reduced surgical complications, rapid recovery, and effective management of post-surgical pain are some key factors accelerating eye surgery acceptance, thereby driving the growth of the U.S. ophthalmic sutures market. Ongoing advancements, such as the Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) initiative for utilizing multimodal interventions during the perioperative period will facilitate faster recovery of patients, thereby encouraging the product demand.

High flexibility features to favor the uptake of synthetic ophthalmic structures in the U.S.  

U.S. synthetic ophthalmic sutures market share will cross the valuation of USD 380 million through 2032. The prime purpose of these sutures involves general soft-tissue approximation and suturing of internal tissues. They maintain tensile strength for long periods of time and are increasingly preferred by an ophthalmologist owing to their high level of flexibility. These non-absorbable synthetic materials are both durable and cost effective. Synthetic sutures have embarked significant improvement and upgradation over the years, particularly with recent advances in technology and science.

Availability of diverse sizes to drive regional adoption of nylon ophthalmic sutures

Nylon ophthalmic sutures in the U.S. ophthalmic sutures market is anticipated to hit USD 180 million by the end of 2032. Several properties related to nylon make it suitable for ophthalmic surgery as it provides a high level of flexibility after implantation in tissues. The growth is attributable to the monofilament features of nylon sutures, which make them considerably soft, smooth, and gives them efficient knot security. Additionally, these sutures are infection resistant and can be easily removed with no tissue adherence. They are composed of polymers made from homo polymer of polyamide available in different sizes and features. The use of nylon ophthalmic sutures is constantly rising, thanks to the availability of more product options, sizes, and technology. As a result, surgeons are increasingly using these sutures to reduce the related complications following surgery.

Infection resistant quality of multifilament ophthalmic sutures to bolster industry trends

The multifilament material structure segment with multiple benefits such as high knot security, easy handling, and less memory, multifilament sutures are an ideal option for patients. They can be easily coated, which makes them more infection resistant. Another significant feature of a multifilament suture is its tensile or breaking strength, that generally comes from suture width. However, these sutures are more expensive than conventional sutures, which might influence the product demand over the forecast period.

Absorbable sutures to see increased adoption in the U.S.

Absorbable ophthalmic suture segment growth can be linked with the rising prevalence of eye diseases and rising awareness regarding ophthalmic surgery benefits. These sutures are available in both, monofilament, and braided form. However, the absorbable sutures used nowadays are of mainly synthetic origin. Advancements in synthetic absorbable sutures with regards to increased physiology and tolerance will also add to increased product adoption.

Low-cost service availability to expedite ophthalmic sutures demand in ambulatory surgical centers

The U.S. ophthalmic sutures market share from ambulatory surgical centers is estimated to surpass USD 192 million by 2032. Rapid growth in the number of healthcare professionals and increase in number of ambulatory surgical centers in the U.S. have triggered the adoption of sutures. Moreover, the rising occurrence of ophthalmic surgeries associated with different eye diseases will further contribute towards the adoption of ophthalmic sutures to improve surgical outcomes. These centers provide better care facility and convenient treatment at affordable rates. Thus, the high-quality services, growing number of outpatient surgical procedures and availability of well-maintained sanitized rooms at ambulatory surgical centers to expedite the market growth in the upcoming years.  

Rising scope for innovations to boost U.S. ophthalmic sutures industry

Medtronic, Mani, Corzamedical, Teleflex Incorporated, Ethicon, B Braun Melsungen AG, and DemeTECH Corporation among others form the competitive sphere of the U.S. ophthalmic sutures market. These companies are actively turning to new product launches to cater to the growing healthcare demands.
