Global Microbial Sealants Market: Introduction
Microbial skin sealants are sterile, film-forming liquids that block the entry of bacteria into surgical site. Microbial sealants are usually used as additional antimicrobial skin preparation after antisepsis and prior to skin incision. These sealants are intended to remain intact and block the migration of flora from surrounding skin into the surgical site. Microbial sealants have shown to reduce bacterial count on the skin at the operative site. Several studies have proven that patients who contract postoperative infection have a significantly longer hospital stay with high cost. In clean surgeries, the primary source of incisional contamination is the flora present on patient’s own skin. The skin cannot be sterilized completely, hence rebound growth of bacteria can occur during the surgery.
Global Microbial Sealants Market: Dynamics
Increase in Incidence of Surgical Site Infections in Health Care Settings
Surgical site infections (SSIs) are the third most frequently reported infection and account for more than 14.5% of all nosocomial infections. An article published by the International Wound Journal stated that 40% to 60% surgical site infections are preventable and that effective control relies on a multitude of interventions that include surveillance, eradication of carrier status, antimicrobial prophylaxis, and infection control programs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 500,000 surgical site infections occur in the U.S. each year, making it the second most common health care-associated infection. Increase in incidence of surgical site infections is likely to drive the global microbial sealants market.

Increase in Incidence of Hospital-acquired Infections
Hospital-acquired infections are highly prevalent adverse events in the health care industry. Unhygienic conditions in and around hospitals along with improper sterilization techniques applied in these settings increase the prevalence of hospital-acquired infections in low and middle income countries. A research paper published in May 2017 in the Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Biomedicine indicated that incidence rate of nosocomial infections is nearly 75% in Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, which is significantly higher than developed regions. This is primarily due to unhygienic conditions, improper sterilization treatment, and lack of proper surveillance systems in hospitals. Therefore, increase in incidence of hospital-acquired infections is likely to drive the global microbial sealants market.
