Growth in the market for surgical sealants, glues, hemostats, sutures/staples and products to prevent post-surgical adhesion varies widely by product and geographic market. Newer products penetrating clinical practice in wound closure and securement, such as high-strength medical glues and adhesives are ramping up, progressively gaining caseload as clinicians adopt these novel closure products in growing numbers of procedures. Also, while growth of all wound closure and securement products is strong globally, higher than average growth is seen for new products in western markets and Japan.
Below is illustrated the high growth product and geographic areas in the global securement market, illustrating that western markets and high strength adhesives represent some of the strongest forecast growth in this field.
