Powered Surgical Instruments Market – A Boon for Surgeons


Powered Surgical Instruments are surgical devices that are used to perform various tasks in a surgical procedure and are operated through a power source. The powered surgical instruments are considered to be technologically advanced devices that assist surgeon in carrying out surgical procedures in various medical domains such as Orthopedics, ENT, Neurology, Cardiovascular, oral, maxillofacial, and others. The hand-pieces segment in the powered surgical instruments are mainly operated through three power sources that include battery powered devices, which use Lithium ion batteries that are rechargeable sources, electric powered devices that are operated through electrical supply, and pneumatic powered devices that are operated through air pressure obtained through an air reservoir attached to the device.

Market Dynamics

The major factor responsible to drive the growth of global powered surgical instruments market include the rising number of surgical procedures coupled with the shortage of skilled and expert surgeons. Increasing number of cosmetic procedures performed that uses minimally invasive surgical devices are also contributing to the market growth. According to Annual Plastic Surgery Procedural Statistics, 15.9 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2015 with 2% increase in the surgical number as compared to 2014. Various other factors contributing to the market growth include rising adoption of surgical robots, technological advancements, increasing healthcare spending by medical sectors of developed and emerging economies, and medical tourism. However, the adverse outcomes due to contamination in the reusable devices leading to surgical site infections, pricing pressure on the manufacturers, and unfavorable reimbursement scenario are expected to restrain the market growth.

The global powered surgical instruments market was valued at US$ 1,965.4 million in 2016 and is expected to witness a robust CAGR of 3.0 % over the forecast period (2017 – 2025).

Increasing inclination of physicians towards robotic surgery to drive the growth of powered surgical instruments market

Lack of skilled surgical experts coupled with increasing number of surgical procedures performed are responsible in surging the demand for robotic surgical procedures. According to Association of American Medical Colleges in 2017, the U.S. is expected to face significant shortage of surgeons accounting up to 19,800-29,000 surgeons by 2030. Thus, the demand for robotic surgeries in North American and European countries coupled with the adoption of minimally invasive surgeries that involves less post-surgical complications and reduces labor cost are expected to foster the growth of powered surgical instruments market. Advent of medical tourism in Asian countries due to availability of advanced healthcare facilities, skilled surgeons, and use of modern technical equipment all at low costs in the region are further propelling the use of these instruments, which in turn is fueling the growth of powered surgical instruments market.

Technological advancements in the hand-pieces segment to propel growth of global powered surgical instruments market 

Market players are focused on providing customized solutions and powered devices to the consumers that includes autoclavable and non-autoclavable devices with specific shaft output and motor power of the instruments. Moreover, the key players are indulged into incorporation of novel technologies in the powered surgical instruments. For instance, Aesthetx, the U.S. based company developed an innovative instrument in 2015 that incorporated the use of peizo technique in the powered surgical instruments. The peizo refers to a piece of equipment that easily cuts the hard bone through with recognizing soft tissues, making the device to stop and vibrate at a place. This device provides high assistance in rhinoplasty ensuring less damage and bleeding inside the nose thus reducing the recovery time. Some of the major players operating the global powered surgical instruments market include Stryker Corporation, Conmed Corporation, Zimmer Holdings, Inc., MicroAire Corporation, Medtronic Plc, KLS Martin Group, DePuy Synthes, and B. Braun Melsungen AG.
