Surgical scalpels are available in different types all over the world. Disposable surgical scalpels comprise a frangible handle, a cutting blade and a sheath in a single unit assembly. The other types include reusable surgical scalpels, stainless steel surgical scalpels, high grade carbon steel surgical scalpels, etc.
The research report suggests that the use of surgical scalpels may result in sharps injuries. There is a major concern related to injuries caused due to the use of surgical scalpels as these injuries lead to severe risk of transmission of blood-borne pathogens resulting in significant economic and psychological burden. Approximately 25% of needle stick injuries occur in the operating room, and 59% occur among surgeons. As a result, there has been a preference for less invasive techniques, as well as the use of safer alternatives to surgical scalpels. There are also some other concerns related to mismanagement in hospitals. Many studies have suggested that some medical centres are not efficient enough to perform operations and this is expected to result in a negative impact on the global surgical scalpels market, as the mismanagement also includes problems related to the disposal of surgical scalpels.
Disposable scalpels are widely used as they help in preventing cross contamination because these blades are disposed of after a single usage in a surgery. These blades are also available in different sizes and designs such as retractable blades, safe switch scalpels, etc. Manufacturers of medical devices are focusing on shifting their production base and network to regions that have cheap labour and huge demand from end users of surgical scalpels. This will help them grow and mark their presence in this highly competitive market. Key players are also looking for growth opportunities in the remote areas. Such manufacturers are helped by the decrease in regulatory requirements for a product launch – products used in surgical procedures are categorised as low risk devices and do not include stringent regulatory approval processes, which is supportive for new product launches and market growth. Moreover, the presence of local players offering products at lower price points facilitates a low barrier to access for such products, thereby promoting their use.
