Surgical Incision Closures: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global surgical incision closures market has been receiving a major boost in the form of new generation closure technologies that offer faster and efficient healing, reduced surgical site infection risk, and aesthetic benefits. With clinicians showing marked interest in reducing operation time, cutting operational costs, and enhancing patient comfort, advanced wound closure devices are gaining preference over traditional products. Besides the rise in general surgical procedure volumes, increase in the number of cosmetic surgeries is also driving market gains. Growth is expected to be high in emerging nations where advanced wound closure products are gradually penetrating the surgical domain.

Driven by rise in application procedures and an expanding target population, hemostats and tissue sealants are the major revenue generators in the wound closure devices market, mainly due to their improved clinical outcomes and economic benefits. Surgical glues and sealants are used as key adjunctive products to seal suture and staple lines and also as regular hemostatic agents for controlling bleeding during surgery. Tissue adhesives, which account for a small portion of the market, are growing at a brisk pace. The market is expected to draw growth from development of high strength adhesives including cyanoacrylates. Fibrin sealants offer benefits such as high biocompatibility coupled with absence of foreign material reactions and reduced risk of unwanted bleeding.

While new technologies continue to pose a threat to sutures and stapling products, growth in the market remains afloat driven by new design and product developments aimed at minimizing trauma and tissue handling. Absorbable sutures are gaining a significant share of the suture market, largely due to increasing acceptance among surgeons. Absorbable sutures eliminate the post-operative strain for removal of sutures, thereby reducing costs as well as hospitals visits. The evolution of laparo-endoscopic procedures and natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery has resulted in the development of a broad range of endoscopic sutures, appliers, staples and clips to assist MIS procedures. Some of the new advancements offer surgeons better hold of the tissue that enable easy adjustment during the procedure. Nanotechnology is also gaining attention for its possible application in the area of surgical incision closures as researchers focus on alternative technologies to facilitate effective scar free surgery without trauma.

As stated by the new market research report on Surgical Incision Closures, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market at a CAGR of 7.4% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by the rise in healthcare expenditure, healthcare infrastructure investments, and medical tourism in countries such as India.

Major players covered in the report include 3M HealthCare, Abbott Laboratories, Advanced Medical Solutions Group Plc, Aesculap AG & Co.KG, Baxter International Inc., CP Medical, Inc., Derma Sciences, Inc., Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc, Medtronic, Inc., Smith & Nephew, Surgical Specialties Corporation (US), Inc. and Teleflex Medical OEM, among others.
