The surgical Scissor market is expected to witness a CAGR of around 8.5% over the forecast period, 2022-2027. The COVID-19 epidemic has significantly impacted the market for surgical scissors. COVID-19 has had a minimal impact on surgical scissors manufacturing and distribution enterprises, owing to shutdowns in several COVID-19-affected nations and an increase in the number of surgical scissor manufacturing workers becoming ill during the pandemic, resulting in a shortage of supplies. However, the number of surgical procedures declined during COVID-19 hampering the market growth. For instance, in June 2020, it was observed that post-lockdown daily out-patient visits were reduced to four patients/day in India, and around 77% of the professionals did not perform even a single surgical procedure. Furthermore, only urgent surgeries were allowed during the pandemic, and most cardiac procedures were canceled or postponed due to the diversion of resources toward the affected patients. Additionally, according to the British Journal of Surgery report, in May 2020, around 48,728 surgical procedures per week were canceled in India, which estimates around 585,000 surgical procedures for 12 weeks. As a result, COVID-19 has a significant impact on the surgical scissors industry.

The significant factor attributing to this market growth is an increase in the number of surgical procedure, the presence of the large aging population, the growing incidence of chronic diseases and lifestyle disorder, and technological advancement in surgical scissors. For instance, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) published Global Survey Results 2020 report, a total of 10,129,528 cosmetic surgical procedures were performed in 2020, and the top five surgical procedures included breast augmentation (1,624,281), liposuction (1,525,197), eyelid surgery (1,225,540), abdominoplasty (765,248), and rhinoplasty (852,554). In addition, there is a consistent rise in the geriatric population, which helps to boost the market growth. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, by 2030, 1 out of every six people on the planet will be 60 years old or older. The number of people aged 60 and up is expected to rise from 1 billion in 2020 to 1.4 billion by 2050. By 2050, the global population of people aged 60 and above will get double to reach 2.1 billion. Between 2020 and 2050, the number of people aged 80 and above is expected to triple, reaching 426 million.

Additionally, technological advancements such as innovative scissors with diverse functions and durable material, an increase in the number of surgical procedures, and increasing use of surgical scissors further drive the growth of the market studied. For instance, in august 2021, Encision Inc. introduced Its AEM 2X enTouch Scissors ("2X Scissors"). 2X Scissors brings new levels of performance and economy to the surgical scissor market by combining the best in class performance of Encision enTouch Disposable Scissors with the value and economy of a multi-use device.

Thus, all aforementioned factors are expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period. However, the adoption of minimally invasive surgery technology is the major restraining factor for the market studied.

Key Market Trends

The Reusable Surgical Scissors Segment is Projected to Grow Significantly During the Forecast Period.

A reusable surgical scissor is an instrument intended for surgical use in cutting, drilling, sawing, scratching, scraping, clamping, retracting, clipping, or similar procedures, without a connection to an active device and which is intended by the manufacturer to be reused after appropriate procedures.

An increase in demand for reusable surgical scissors, rise in the number of surgical procedures, rise in demand for advanced surgical techniques, rise in adoption of cost-effective and robust surgical instruments, and wide availability of reusable surgical scissors are the key factors that boost the growth of the segment. For instance, according to the report published in the national health library in May 2021, 5000 surgeries are performed per 100,000 people annually in India.

Furthermore, as per the research study published in June 2021, titled "German Heart Surgery Report 2020: The Annual Updated Registry of the German Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery", a total of 92,809 operations were classified as heart surgery procedures in the classical sense, of which 29,444 were isolated coronary artery bypass grafting procedures, 35,469 were isolated heart valve procedures, and the number of isolated heart transplantation increased by 2% to 340. Thus, the increasing number of surgical procedures and rise in demand for surgical scissors are likely to boost the segment.

Additionally, reusable scissors have the advantage of avoiding cross-contamination. Scissors are the most crucial and valuable device in a surgical toolkit. They're made of medical-grade stainless steel that's been hardened regularly. Moreover, physicians utilize surgical scissors to cut tissues on the surface or within the body during an operation.

North America Dominates the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

North America is expected to dominate the overall surgical scissor instruments market throughout the forecast period. Due to the increase in the number of surgical procedures, advanced medical facilities, and the number of target populations suffering from chronic diseases and disorders, and increasing health concerns along with the growing demand for advanced surgeries and a better healthcare structure is a major factor driving its market growth.

Furthermore, the presence of a large number of clinics and ease of availability of technologically advanced instruments in that region is further driving its market growth. Moreover, extensive research and technological advancement, the Presence of health care organizations, an increase in surgical procedures, and improving reimbursement scenarios are likely to propel the market growth.

According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery global survey 2020, there were 1,351,997 surgeries performed in the United States in 2019. Additionally, According to the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention, in 2020, about 600,000 women in the United States have a hysterectomy every year, about 460,000 United States residents have a cholecystectomy, and 1.3 million pregnant women seek C-section in the United States. All these procedures require surgical scissors, boosting the market growth in the country.

Thus, all the aforementioned factors are expected to boost the market in the region over the forecast period.
