World Market Report On Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Products, 2010-2017


Medmarket Diligence has published an update to its periodic review of the worldwide sealant and glue markets including forward looking commentary extending to 2017.


This report appears to be prinicipally targeted at the companies already in or considering entry into these sectors, detailing 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. If you wonder why anti-adhesion products are included, so do we, but it’s probably because they don’t really fit anywhere else in the Medmarket portfolio.

It’s quite a detailed affair this, covering current clinical status of these product types as well as 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.

Global coverage

The report will provide full year actual data from 2011 and a worldwide forecast to 2017 of the markets for these technologies, with particular emphasis on the market impact of new technologies through the forecast period. The report will provide specific forecasts and shares of the worldwide market by segment for Americas (detail for U.S., Rest of North America and Latin America), Europe (detail for United Kingdom, German, France, Italy, Spain, Rest of Europe), Asia/Pacific (detail for Japan, Korea, Rest of Asia/Pacific) and Rest of World.

Patient population dynamics

According to the introductory fluff the report will “also provide background data on the surgical, disease and traumatic wound patient populations targeted by current technologies and those under development, and the current clinical practices in the management of these patients, including the dynamics among the various clinical specialties or subspecialties vying for patient population and facilitating or limiting the growth of technologies.” So pretty comprehensive then.

Crystal ball time

The report will establish the current worldwide market size for major technology segments as a baseline for and projecting growth in the market through 2017 and will very cleverly assess and project the composition of the market as technologies gain or lose relative market performance over this period.

Good grief, how many?

The report will profile a minimum of 100 companies in this industry, providing data on their current products, current market position and products under development… bet you didn’t know there were a hundred companies in this space did you?

In conclusion  we can say that altogether this a truly heavyweight report and we can only marvel at the work undertaken to generate it every few years.
