Global Wound Closure Products Market: Trends and Opportunities
The rising application of wound closure products for treating internal and external wounds is primarily driving the wound closure products market. Unlike minor cuts and bruises that heal on their own, deep wounds need external assistance such as sutures and tissue adhesives to prevent infection and speed up healing.
The increasing number of surgical procedures globally is also a key growth driver of the wound closure products market. Suture and staples are long-established wound closure products due to their low cost and ease of application. However, novel hemostat products such as sealants are gaining adoption due to advantages of faster wound closure in lesser time. These products also saves hospital visit as required for post healing removal of sutures and staples.
The demand for absorbable sutures is pacing up owing to their increasing application for both internal and external wound closure. Various surgical procedures such as peripheral bypass and aortic calve replacement use combination of sutures or staples and tissue adhesives for wound closure.
The rising incidence of lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes and reluctance to use sutures due to development of scars and risk of infection are driving the adoption of adhesives and tissue sealants.
