Jan. 3, 2011 - PRLog -- The market for surgical closure and securement has entered a phase in which major driving forces are the introduction of new procedures and techniques by the surgical profession, the development by the medical device industry of new wound closure devices and biomaterials, and the growing willingness of surgical specialists to use these devices in appropriate circumstances. There is now a continuum between simple closure using sutures and the use of specially designed devices and delivery systems with new bioresorbable securement materials either as supplements to conventional closure methodology or as stand-alone replacements.

"The use of novel wound closure, sealing, hemostasis and other advance wound management technologies is routine in clinical practice, while still demonstrating great potential for further penetration of traditional wound management practice and significant product and technology development to push the market potential even higher," says Patrick Driscoll of MedMarket Diligence.  A wide range of sealants, glues, hemostatic agents and other acute and chronic wound management product formulations is steadily evolving as manufacturers continue to develop products with improved performance, whether alone or in adjunctive use with other advanced wound products or with traditional wound products as in sealants applied to suture lines for ensured closure, according to Driscoll.

The global market for advanced wound closure technologies therefore demonstrates, in select segments, annual growth forecast to exceed double digits well past 2015.

The MedMarket Diligence report #S180, "Worldwide Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Markets, 2010," details the complete range of sealants & glues technologies used in traumatic, surgical and other wound closure, from tapes, sutures and staples to hemostats, fibrin sealants/glues and medical adhesives. The report details current clinical and technology developments in this huge and rapidly growing worldwide market, with data on products in development and on the market; market size and forecast; competitor market shares; competitor profiles; and market opportunity.

This report is a market and technology assessment and forecast of surgical sealants, glues, hemostasis, other wound closure and anti-adhesion. The report details the current and emerging products, technologies and markets involved in wound closure and sealing using sutures and staples, tapes, hemostats, fibrin and sealant products, medical adhesives and products to prevent surgical adhesions. With full year actual data from 2009 and, for many companies, two quarters of actual data from 2010, the report provides a worldwide forecast to 2015 of the markets for these technologies, with particular emphasis on the market impact of new technologies through the coming decade.  The report provides specific forecasts and shares of the worldwide market by segment for the U.S., Europe (United Kingdom, German, France, Italy, BeNeLux), Latin America, Japan, Korea and Rest of World.

The report provides background data on the surgical, disease and traumatic wound patient populations targeted by current technologies and those under development, and the current clinical practices in the management of these patients, including the dynamics among the various clinical specialties or subspecialties vying for patient population and facilitating or limiting the growth of technologies.

The report establishes the current worldwide market size for major technology segments as a baseline for and projecting growth in the market over a five-year forecast. The report also assesses and projects the composition of the market as technologies gain or lose relative market performance over this period.
