Key Market Trends


Closure Device is Expected to Register a High CAGR in the Assisting Device Segment

Closure devices are used for reconnecting tissues during surgical procedures and for closing incisions made by trocars. The laparoscopic port closure device successfully and safely closes port sites in obese patients undergoing bariatric procedures and surgeries. The closure devices segment is expected to register high growth, as they are widely used in minimally invasive surgeries that require immediate closure of very small incisions made at the time of surgical procedures.

According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) 2019 report, estimated that overweight reduces Germany’s GDP by 3.0%. Furthermore, to cover these costs, each German pays an additional EUR 431 in taxes per year. This indicates the heavy burden of obesity in the country which is expected to boost the market in the near future.
