The global hand-held surgical instruments market size is expected to reach USD 6.51 billion by 2025 at a 7.1 percent CAGR. The market is anticipated to be driven by rise in number of surgical procedures being performed and increase in prevalence of chronic diseases. In addition, rise in number of road and other accidents globally is contributing to high demand for these surgical instruments.
