A surgical staple is a specialized medical device used in surgery in place of traditional sutures. It is used to close skin wounds, connect or remove parts of the bowels or lungs. Staplers were primarily developed to overcome the problem such as patency (security against stenosis or occlusion of the lumen) and tightness i.e., security against blood or bowel content leakage in addition to easiness and quickness in performing the anastomosis. Staplers have many advantages over traditional sutures in surgery. Staplers generally help in decreasing surgical time (operative and anesthetic) and, they can be placed faster than stitches, decreasing the chance of infection. Surgical stapling devices find its application in cardiac and thoracic surgery, gynecology surgery, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, cosmetic surgery and others. The increase in life threatening diseases has resulted in more surgical procedures being executed across the globe and more than 230 million surgeries are performed worldwide every year. More than 22 million surgeries take place in the US alone every year. The Asia Pacific region accounts for the largest distribution of surgical procedures of nearly 33% of the worldwide procedures, largely because of its huge population. China currently performs the highest number of plastic surgeries in Asia, according to a survey conducted by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

The growing number of surgeries and the increasing preference for minimally invasive surgeries, the increasing adoption of staplers over traditional sutures, growing healthcare expenditure across the globe and medical tourism are factors driving the growth of the surgical stapling global market. However, the high cost of this medical device and the availability of alternate technologies such as sutures, sealants, clips, adhesives etc., may hinder the growth of surgical stapling global market.
