With its products filling many niches, established companies making acquisitions, startups still entering the market and clinical practice steadily adopting products in existing and new uses, the sealants, glues and related products markets reflect the characteristics of both well established and emerging technologies. A new report from MedMarket Diligence details the status and outlook for the products, technologies, companies and global markets.
Foothill Ranch, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2010 — According to the newly released report, “Worldwide Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Markets, 2008-2015”, from MedMarket Diligence, 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.
“There is a broad spectrum of activity in the ‘advanced wound closure’ or ‘securement’ market, with the characteristics of disruptive innovation of new technologies all the way through market consolidation and price erosion,” says Patrick Driscoll of MedMarket DIligence. “Surgical sealants, glues and related products are to some degree routine in clinical practice and to some degree still seeking to prove their utility in new applications, while traditional sutures, staples, clips, tapes and other products are struggling to maintain their competitiveness.”
Globally, the market has reached $10 billion for surgical sealants, glues, hemostasis, sutures, staples/clips, tapes and anti-adhesion products, with annual sales growth among the constituent segments ranging from 2.6% to in excess of 14% annually. The market continues to be characterized by the introduction of many new products, formation of new companies, growth of existing applications, and adoption of new applications. Simultaneously the market is evolving through consolidation and other dynamics typical of established markets.
The MedMarket Diligence report #S180, “Worldwide Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Markets, 2008-2015”, 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. The report provides a worldwide historic (from 2008), current and annual 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.
