Global Adhesion Barriers Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Base Year


Forecast Year




Base Year Market Size (2022)

~ USD 1.0 Billion

Forecast Year Market Size (2033)

~ USD 3.0 Billion

The global adhesion barriers market is estimated to garner a revenue of USD 3.0 Billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~8% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market generated a revenue of USD 1.0 Billion in the year 2022. The rise in the incidence of post-operative adhesion is anticipated to be a key driver of the global adhesion barriers market. Although adhesions can develop everywhere, they most frequently happen in the chest, pelvis, and abdomen. According to research, abdominal adhesions can develop after surgery in approximately 92% of patients who have abdominal or pelvic surgery. Additionally, more than 9.5% of patients who have never had surgery develop abdominal adhesions.

A band of scar tissue called adhesion holds the components of a tissue together. Adhesion can also be a thin band of fibrous tissue or a thin plastic wrap-like sheet of tissue. Injured tissues are kept apart by adhesion barriers, such as bodily barrier substances, to prevent the creation of a fibrin bridge between them. Adhesion forms as the body's repair processes react to any tissue disturbance, such as surgery, infection, trauma, or radiation, leading to an inflammatory response. Moreover, the increasing rate of surgery across the globe is estimated to drive market growth. It was observed that over the past 25 years, the number of ambulatory surgeries performed at community hospitals in the United States has steadily increased, rising from 13.4 million in 1995 to 19.2 million in 2018.

Global Adhesion Barriers Market Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Prevalence of Gynecological Diseases – A reported presence of one or more gynecological diseases had an estimated yearly prevalence rate of 97.1 per 1,000 women. The majority of disorders, 53.0 per 1,000 women annually, were reproductive disorders. The following most prevalent conditions were adnexal issues and fibroids, with rates per 1,000 women of 16.6 and 9.2, respectively.

Increasing gynecological disorders including reproductive problems and fibrosis issues are leading to rising surgery cases among females across the globe and which in turn is estimated to boost the market growth.

  • Rising Cases of Cardiovascular Diseases – In the United States, heart disease claimed the lives of almost 697,000 people in 2020, accounting for 1 in 5 fatalities.
  • Increase in Usage of Adhesion Barrier Products – 20% of emergency surgical procedures and 12–16% of emergency surgical hospitalizations are due to small bowel obstruction (SBO). Intraabdominal adhesions continue to be a substantial cause of SBO, accounting for 65% of cases, despite the development of laparoscopic surgery.

Over the past few years, surgeons all over the world have used more adhesion barrier products. Postoperative pain, inflammation, infertility, and other gynecological and bowel movement problems frequently result in protracted suffering. This influences the selection of adhesion barrier films made by surgeons during surgical procedures.

  • Increasing Abdominal Surgeries – The World Health Organization (WHO) has released fresh information showing that the number of cesarean sections performed worldwide has increased and now accounts for more than one in five (21%) deliveries.

Surgery for the abdomen, including the colon, spleen, appendix, stomach, and small intestines, is known as abdominal surgery. For a number of conditions, including Cesarean (C-Section), infections, tumors, hernia repairs, and even intestinal diseases, surgery can be performed.

  • Increasing Geriatric Population – As per the report by United Nations, in 2019, there were 703 million people worldwide who were 65 or older. In 2050, it is expected to increase to around 1.5 billion elderly people worldwide.


  • Surgeon’s Reluctantness to Use Adhesion Barriers
  • Lack of Evidences to Prove Safety and Efficacy of the Product
  • Difficulty in Getting Market Approval Due to Less Awareness Among People

The global adhesion barriers market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into gynecological, general/abdominal, orthopedic, cardiovascular, neurological, urological, and other surgeries. Out of these, the general/abdominal surgeries segment is estimated to hold the largest market share by the end of 2033. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing abdominal diseases and infections which are leading to the rising rate of abdominal surgeries. In addition to this, the increasing geriatric population who are more prone to abdominal abnormalities is estimated to drive segment growth. One of the research studies included 128 patients with abdominal emergency surgery issues who were 62 or of age or older and found intestinal blockage (17.5%) and perforated peptic ulcer (38.1%) were the two most frequent reasons for urgent abdominal surgery.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


According to the statistics by the World Health Organization, the global per capita healthcare expenditure amounted to USD 1,064.741 in the year 2017. The worldwide healthcare expenditure per person grew from USD 864.313 in 2008 to USD 1,110.841 in 2018, where the U.S. is the top country that amounted to healthcare expenditure of USD 10, 623.85 per capita in 2018. As of 2018, the domestic general government healthcare spending in the U.S. was USD 5,355.79, which grew from USD 3,515.82 in 2008. These are some of the factors responsible for market growth over the past few years. Moreover, as per the projections by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the estimated average annual percent change related to National Health Expenditures (NHE) in the U.S. was 5.2% in 2020 as compared to 2019 (4.5%). Furthermore, National Health Expenditures are projected to reach USD 6,192.5 Billion in 2028, where the per capita expenditure is estimated to touch USD 17,611 in the same year. These are notable indicators that are anticipated to create lucrative business opportunities in upcoming years.
