New Technologies, Products, Companies, Markets and Opportunities in Med/Surg Wound Closure
Manufacturers of products for hemostasis, closure, and sealing of wounds are developing and introducing many new products globally that exploit increasing physician adoption of these wound technologies, according to a 2012 MedMarket Diligence report.
“The use of sutures, tapes and other physical wound closure dates back arguably thousands of years, and while a great many wound types can be adequately managed by these wound products, considerable opportunity exists for new products, whether used alone or adjunctively with traditional products, to accelerate wound healing, minimize blood loss, minimize infection and otherwise reduce the overall cost of healing wounds,” notes Patrick Driscoll, MedMarket Diligence, publisher of the 2012 report, “Worldwide Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Markets, 2010-2017.”
According to Driscoll, advanced wound closure technologies including sealants and adhesives have created about a $2 billion dent in the roughly $7 billion current worldwide wound closure market. And with sealants/adhesives growing at better than 10% annually while sutures, staples, clips and tapes sales are only growing at 5-7% annually, the impact of new closure technologies becomes greater every year.
The MedMarket Diligence 2012 report (see http://www.mediligence.com/
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 establish the current worldwide market size for major technology segments as a baseline for and projecting growth in the market through 2017. The report assesses and projects the composition of the market as technologies gain or lose relative market performance over this period. The report profiles 122 active companies in this industry, providing data on their current products, current market position and products under development.
