Proliferation of sealant/glue/hemostasis/anti-adhesion companies, developments

A truly striking amount of industry activity spanning company formation, industry consolidation, product developments and market introductions have taken place over the past two years in the markets for sealants, glues, hemostasis, wound closure and anti-adhesion.

With a relatively low barrier to entry for products with well established routes to FDA and CE Mark approval, application of products across a wide range of clinical applications, short learning curves and otherwise low resistance on the part of clinicians in adopting new products in practice, the markets for these products have been dynamic.

The report by MedMarket Diligence, pending publication in December 2008, illustrates the breadth and depth of this robust market, with nearly 100 companies profiled and active in this market.  

Globally, this is a $11+ billion market, with persistently double digit growth rate in some sectors.  The report is described below:
