Surgical Sealant and Glue New Uses and Penetration of Traditional Wound Closure, Hemostasis
According to research completed by MedMarket Diligence, the success of surgical sealants and glues in clinical practice is enabling them to more deeply penetrate existing markets for sutures and staples, plus capture caseload in new applications.
According to research completed by MedMarket Diligence (in the report "Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Worldwide"), these products have, over the past several years, steadily penetrated caseload and market share of surgical sutures, staples and other traditional wound closure products, in addition to their adjunctive use (e.g., as in surgical sealants and glues used to reinforce/seal suture lines). Their routine use in clinical practice has also given surgeons the experience and confidence to apply them to new procedures.
"Traditional wound closure products like sutures and staples still command a sizable portion of the market, but their overall use growing at a relatively flat 3%, or declining in many applications and geographic markets," says Patrick Driscoll of MedMarket Diligence. "But fibin sealants, bioglues, high-strength sealants, hemostatic agents have been growing, even by a conservative estimates, at 10%-15% per year.
MedMarket Diligence has completed its market forecasts for fibrin sealants, high strength glues, hemostats, sutures, tapes and anti-adhesion products. The forecast data is available now, but will also be integrated in the global report #S180, “Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure & Anti-Adhesion Worldwide, 2010-1015.”
