Report Overview

The global hemostasis & tissue sealing agents market size was valued at USD 6.13 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8% during the forecast period. Hemostats and sealants are medical devices used to cease bleeding and hemorrhage caused by injuries and surgical procedures. The market is expected to witness lucrative growth over the next seven years owing to an increase in demand supported by the rising surgery volumes. Growth in the geriatric population and the high prevalence of chronic conditions are among the key drivers of the market. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics, over 45% of the American population suffers from at least one chronic condition requiring critical care.

U.S. hemostasis & tissue sealing agents market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

Geriatric patients require critical care and are prone to injuries and wounds that take a lot of time to heal. With increasing demographic tilt toward an active lifestyle, the cases of routine injuries and wounds are on a rise, which is expected to drive market growth. Chronic diseases ultimately lead to surgical procedures to be performed on the patient, which, in turn, boosts growth. Hernia fixation, diabetes, spinal injuries, ophthalmic injuries and replacements, urological disorders, and burns are a few chronic conditions requiring these products. The spread of the COVID-19 virus had a significant effect on the market.

The coronavirus causes thrombotic bleeding and complications, a major cause of fatality among patients that are infected by the virus. The market grew with the increasing importance of unbalanced hemostasis in COVID-19 patients in favor of a prothrombotic state. The rising instances of hemostatic anomalies in the impacted people and their effect on prognosis likewise positively affected the market growth. Critical illness, bleeding, death, and thrombosis among patients affected by COVID-19 were predicted during hospital admission by D-dimer elevation. Therefore, the market witnessed positive growth during and post-COVID-19 period.

In March 2020, the International Society for Thrombosis and Hemostasis launched interim guidelines for the management and recognition of coagulopathy among COVID-19 patients on the basis of ISTH DIC score. Hemostasis devices and sealants are used to prevent blood loss in various conditions. Preference for these products over other wound closure methods led to their increasing use in multiple conditions, especially in endoscopic procedures. The hemostasis and tissue sealing agents market cater to conditions ranging from mild injuries to burns and neurosurgical management. Since 2006, post a study conducted and published by the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, hemostatic products have found a wide range of applicability in urological treatments.

Minimally invasive surgeries in the field of urology are particularly making use of hemostatic solutions, thereby promoting the market growth. The highest demand is witnessed in cardiovascular conditions followed by general surgeries. Higher application in cardiovascular disorders is attributed to better clinical results obtained by the use of sealants and hemostats compared to other wound closure techniques. However, a lack of reimbursements for these products may restrain the growth to a certain extent. The increasing cost of surgical procedures and the high price of surgical products is also expected to challenge the growth to an extent.

With a worldwide rise in the incidence of chronic conditions, the volume of surgical procedures is expected to increase. This is further expected to drive demand for wound healing and closure management. According to the CDC, approximately 150 million Americans are suffering from at least one chronic condition, which leads to the need for surgery. Diabetes as well as neurological, urological, and cardiac diseases are also leading causes of an increase in the volume of surgical procedures. Middle East, Africa, and Asia are witnessing increased incidence of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. With the growing incidence of chronic diseases, the number of injuries & surgeries are expected to increase, expanding the use of hemostats, adhesives, and tissue sealing agents.

Minimally invasive surgeries in urology are particularly making use of hemostatic agents, thereby promoting the market growth. The highest demand for hemostatic and tissue sealing agents is in cardiovascular conditions, followed by general surgeries. The high use of these products in cardiovascular diseases can be attributed to better clinical results as compared to other wound closure techniques. Usage of sealants and hemostats together reduces treatment time, resulting in minimal scarring and quicker recovery. Manufacturing of hemostat and tissue sealing agents falls under regulations of medical device manufacturing Class II and Class III.

These classes require a higher degree of control and monitoring. Class II devices need premarket notification, whereas Class III devices need premarket approval from regulatory bodies. Besides this special compliance, the basic ones include labeling requirements, medical device listing, quality system regulation/good manufacturing practices, and medical device reporting. Adverse reactions and complications worsen a patient’s condition, which is a major market constraint. The most common complications include breathing difficulty (breathlessness), itching, burning & swelling, redness over the area of application, weakness or numbness at the site of application, and headache.

Product Insights

Key product segments analyzed in this study include topical hemostat and adhesive & tissue sealants. The topical hemostat segment captured the largest share of more than 66.5% of the global revenue in 2021 due to its use with conventional treatment to provide cost-efficiency, quick & easy absorbability of the hemostatic agent, minimal tissue reactivity, and non-antigenicity. The topical hemostats are further classified into mechanical, active, and flowable hemostats. Hemostasis involves the completion of coagulation, fibrinolysis, and platelet aggregation pathways by the activation of these factors.

Global hemostasis & tissue sealing agents market share, by topical hemostat, 2021 (%)

Hemostats consist of hemostatic agents and their delivering systems, which may be prefilled syringe or ready-to-use applicators. Adhesives and sealants play a prominent role in controlling blood loss during surgeries. They function by binding with and sealing the damaged tissues. Binding leads to the development of a barrier over the injuries and surgical wounds and helps promote coagulation. The factors promoting their demand for sutures are faster procedure rate, minimal invasion, reduced post-surgical infections, and prevention of exudation of other body fluids. These are further sub-segmented on the basis of sealants used in synthetic, natural, and adhesion barrier products.

Regional Insights

In 2021, North America held the largest market share of over 33.00% owing to the growing prevalence of cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, and cancer within the region. Adhesives and sealants account for a large share of the North America regional market. Europe held the second-largest market share in 2021 and is expected to register the second-fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The launch of advanced and innovative products, such as FLOSEAL, TISEEL, and HEMOPATCH, is expected to propel the demand from European countries. The regional market is expected to be driven by the rising geriatric population, which ultimately leads to a higher number of surgeries. The market in Italy is driven primarily by the increasing demand for more effective and quicker healing post-surgery.

An increase in healthcare spending is expected to further boost the market growth in Italy. One of the major factors responsible for market growth in Spain is increasing awareness about the use of hemostatic agents, adhesives, and tissue sealants to avoid the risk of postoperative bleeding.
