Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Adhesion Barrier Market size is projected to cross USD 11 billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of adhesion barrier was USD 860 million. The increasing rate of postoperative adhesion is expected to be the key driver for the global anti-adhesive barrier market. Although adhesions can develop anywhere, they most commonly occur on the chest, pelvis, and abdomen. According to research, abdominal adhesions can develop postoperatively in about 92% of patients who undergo abdominal or pelvic surgery. In addition, more than 9.5% of patients who had never had surgery had abdominal adhesions.

A band of scar tissue called an adhesive holds the components of the tissue together. The binder can also be a thin strip of fibrous tissue or a thin sheet of tissue in the form of plastic wrap. Injured tissues are separated by adhesion barriers, such as bodily barrier substances, to prevent the formation of a fibrin bridge between them. Adhesions form when the body's repair process reacts to any tissue disorder, such as surgery, infection, trauma, or radiation, resulting in an inflammatory response. In addition, the increasing rate of surgery globally is estimated to drive the growth of the market.

Adhesion Barrier Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Driver

  • Increasing Prevalence of Gynaecological Diseases - The reported incidence of one or more gynecological diseases has an estimated annual incidence of around 1.50 billion in 2019. The increase in gynaecological disorders including reproductive problems and fibrotic problems is leading to an increase in surgical cases in women worldwide. Also, if not properly treated at the right time, it can lead to health problems and possibly death. Therefore, it is estimated that it will stimulate the growth of the adhesion barrier market.
  • Increased Cases of Cardiovascular Disease - Postoperative adhesive diaphragm is required in cardiac surgery. Hence, the increasing occurrence of cardiovascular diseases, thus, rising the demand for adhesive barriers.
  • Increasing Use of Adhesion Barrier Products - Nearly all emergency surgical procedures and 11-15% of emergency surgical admissions are due to small bowel obstruction (SBO) worldwide. Intra-abdominal adhesions continue to be an important cause of SBO, accounting for 64% of cases, despite the growth of laparoscopic surgery. In recent years, surgeons around the world have used more adhesion barrier products.


  • Surgeon’s Reluctant to Use Adhesion Barriers – Surgeons are reluctant to use adhesion barriers even though they are aware of the risks owing to the limited clinical research supporting the efficacy and safety of adhesion barrier products. Furthermore, there are limited adhesion barrier products that are getting approval to be commercialized.
  • Lack of Evidence to Prove the Safety and Efficacy of the Product
  • Difficulty in Getting Market Approval

Adhesion Barriers Segmentation

Application (Neurological, Cardiovascular, Urological, General/Abdominal, Gynecological, Orthopedic)

The general/abdominal surgeries segment in the adhesion barrier market is anticipated to observe the highest CAGR by the end of 2035. The growth of this segment is attributed to an increase in intra-abdominal diseases and infections, plus an increasing number of abdominal surgeries. In addition, an increase in the elderly population prone to abdominal abnormalities is estimated to drive the growth of this segment. According to reported data, almost 8 out of 20 adults worldwide suffer from gastrointestinal dysfunction. In addition, growing digestive health concerns are expected to drive the dental market to grow away from the general/abdominal surgery segment and further invasive techniques, are expected to drive the growth of this segment in the market.

Type (Natural, Synthetic Adhesion Barriers)

The synthetic adhesive fence segment is expected to account for 55% share of the global adhesion barrier market during the forecast period. This may be due to the resorbable properties, as it eliminates the need for a second surgery to remove the implant. In addition, they are less expensive than natural adhesion barriers and are expected to drive the growth of this segment in the market. Moreover, they are widely adopted by hospitals and clinics for products to prevent postoperative adhesions. That further contributes to the growth of the synthetic adhesive fence segment in the market.
