Products that provide hemostasis, closure, sealing and anti-adhesion of wounds comprised long established products (e.g., tapes, sutures, etc.) as well as a variety of advanced products such as fibrin and other surgical sealants, surgical glues, hemostats and products to prevent post-surgical adhesion. While traditional products are being innovated to keep pace with advanced products (for example, through the development of absorbable sutures), the shift of caseload and product sales away from traditional products appears unrelenting.
As a result, the balance of the competitive landscape is forecast to shift over the next few years toward advanced sealing, hemostasis, closure and anti-adhesion products. Below is illustrated, in a combined “donut” chart, this shift from 2012 to 2017 in the share of the global market for these products.

These percentage shifts may not seem significant unless one considers that the global market for these products is well over $14 billion.
The MedMarket Diligence Report #S190, “Worldwide Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Markets, 2012-2017”, details the complete range of sealants & glues technologies used in traumatic, surgical and other wound closure, including tapes, sutures/staples/mechanical closure, hemostats, fibrin sealants/glues and medical adhesives and anti-adhesion products. The report details current clinical and technology developments, with data on products in development (detailing market status) and on the market; market size and forecast; competitor market shares; competitor profiles; and market opportunity. The report provides full year actual data from 2011. The report provides a worldwide forecast to 2017 of the markets for these technologies, with emphasis on the market impact of new technologies through the forecast period.
