Report : Europe Blade Removers Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Product Type (Single Use Blade Removers, and Multiple Use Blade Removers), and End-User (Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, and Others)
The single use blade removers segment by product type is estimated to lead the market growth during the forecast period.
According to a new market research study of “Europe Blade Removers Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis by Product Type, End User and Country.” The Europe blade remover market is expected to reach US$ 38,505.81 thousand by 2028 from US$ 31,274.96 thousand in 2021; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.0% from 2021 to 2028. The report highlights trends prevailing in the Europe blade remover market and the factors driving market along with those that act as hindrances.
Removing the blades with tweezers or fingers is not safe. This increases the likelihood of getting a cut and bloodborne injuries, such as HIV, Hep B, and Hep C. If excessive force is used while removing the blade with tweezers, it can slip and eject beyond its normal range, stabbing a nearby colleague. The risk is more if any person's blood has contaminated the tool. This can result in percutaneous exposure to bloodborne pathogens. In the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA), ~9 million people are chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV). This risk also affects these patients.
Percutaneous injuries to medical personnel pose a mutual risk to patients, with the possibility of physician-to-patient transmission of infection. The operating room is at the highest risk for this transmission route. Open wounds are prone to contamination, and injuries to staff's hands in the operating room often result in bleeding. The traditional blade (surgical knife) is used extensively in surgeries and is the most widely used surgical instrument globally.
A conventional surgical blade includes a reusable sterile handle with a tang at one end attached to a replaceable slotted blade. The handle is meant to be used repeatedly, but the blade is usually discarded. Removal devices are designed to protect the user and reduce personnel exposure from accidental injury while removing a scalpel blade from a reusable handle. Also, the ease of single-handed operation with the usage of blade removers would help in avoiding the various hazards and injuries, thereby boosting the market for blade removers.
European countries are witnessing a resurgence in COVID-19 cases. Lockdowns are being reintroduced in the UK, Spain, Italy, and Ireland, as per the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). Due to the second wave of COVID-19 cases, governments of many countries are working toward improving their treatments and regenerative medicines technologies for the development of various diseases, including COVID-19 infection.
Increasing COVID-19 cases has affected the diagnosis and treatment of diseases due to the diversification of the medical workforce and the decision to focus on treating the critically ill. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many research organizations are focusing more on COVID-19 studies to understand SARS-CoV-2. The blade remover market witnessed a decline at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis due to disruptions in the supply chain and decreased demand for medical devices due to the imposition of lockdown in most European countries. Additionally, appointments and operations have been delayed in many clinics around the world due to increasing cases, as approximately 40% of the diagnosed COVID-19 cases required hospitalisation; and some critical cases were admitted to intensive care units (ICU). According to an article in Vascular News, in the first week of the pandemic, there was an 80% reduction in beds and an 84% reduction in operating rooms for elective procedures, with 43% of hospitals in Italy not performing any elective surgery. With the number of rising cases, there was a significant decrease in procedures due to a lack of healthcare resources. It also impacted the new product launches, affecting the sales and growth of the market in the region. However, with the implementation of proper guidelines and protocols by the European Commission to reduce SARS-CoV-2 exposure and ease in movement restrictions, the market is expected to grow during the forecast period.
The Europe blade removers market, by product type, is bifurcated into single use blade removers and multiple use blade removers. Based on end-user, the Europe blade removers market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and others. Geographically, the Europe blade removers market is sub-segmented into Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain and RoE.
