Introduction to Surgical Adhesives and Sealants

Surgical adhesives and sealants are used in order to close the incision once the surgery is complete. These adhesives and sealants provide better closure of the incision while ensuring minimum loss of blood. They are used to block the flow of blood after a surgical procedure. As a result, these are increasingly being used in place of conventional methods. The conventional surgical closure techniques include wires, sutures and stitches which are not as effective as the modern surgical adhesives and sealants.

Market Size and Forecast

The surgical adhesives and sealants market is anticipated to record a substantially high CAGR of around 9.5% over the forecast period, i.e., 2019-2027. The market is segmented by material, by application, by end user and by region. Based on material, the market is segmented into synthetic and natural, out of which, the natural sealants and adhesives segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the surgical adhesives and sealants market on account of growing demand for natural and biological substances as they are readily acceptable by the patients’ body. Biologically derived adhesives and sealants have a wide range of applications in surgery, including internal surgery. Synthetic surgical adhesives and sealants cannot be used for internal surgeries due to the risk of inflammatory immune responses by the body. On the basis of natural sealants and adhesives, the market is further segmented into fibrin, albumin, collagen and others, out of which, the fibrin segment is anticipated grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and others, out of which, the hospitals segment is estimated to witness the highest growth of the market on account of rising patient population in hospitals along with availability of better treatment facilities. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
