Read Report Overview:

The increasing number of geriatric patients worldwide, awareness among patients about different surgeries and minimally invasive procedures, technological developments in surgical procedures such as robotic and power-assisted systems are factors likely to fuel the general surgery devices market in the next few years. One of the technological developments is that the market is witnessing preference to minimally invasive procedures and use of robotics and computer-assisted devices, thereby reducing time required for surgery as well as complications. This has opened new avenues for growth of the global general surgery devices market. Market players are competing with one another with new product launches, expanding geographic presence, and innovative and educational offerings. However, the market is also facing challenges such as development of other non-invasive surgery technologies and intense competition among existing manufacturers of general surgery devices. Moreover, factors such as product recalls, government regulations regarding reduction in overall health care costs, and subsequent increase in bulk purchasing through INHs (Integrated Health Networks) and GPOs (group purchasing organizations) are restraining the market.
