LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 11, 2019--

The market is witnessing a significant increase in technological advancements in suturing materials, which has enhanced the applicability and efficacy of sutures. Biodegradable polymers have emerged as a beneficial material for surgical suturing because of its excellent mechanical and physical properties. These sutures have high therapeutic potential as they can act as carriers for drugs, antibodies, proteins, stem cells, and nanoparticles. Such developments are expected to fuel the growth of the absorbable suture market during the forecast period. Furthermore, this industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by type (synthetic absorbable sutures and natural absorbable sutures), application (general surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, gynecology surgeries, ophthalmic surgeries, and others) and geography (Asia, Europe, North America, and ROW).
