The global surgical incision closure market is expected to register significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing investment in research and development, reduced level of trauma along with reducing risks of infection and increasing demand to shorten the length of hospital stay. Appropriate incision closure during surgery is crucial to maintain the integrity of tissues and regain normal functions. The primary objective during surgery is to achieve hemostasis and to seal the incision both internally and externally. Any failure to seal the incisions perfectly leads to severe medical conditions such as infection and critical scarring. The introduction of technologically advanced incision closure products is additionally expected to propel the growth of this market.
The surgical incision closure market is segmented on three different bases such as type, application, and products. On the basis of type, the market is divided into the advanced wound care market and advanced wound closure market. Burns, ulcers, and surgical wounds are the market types based on application. Sutures, tissue sealants, and staplers are the three types on the basis of products. Sutures possess one of the highest market share and are expected to continue the dominance owing to the expansive product development efforts. For instance, recently developed barbed suture technology is designed to face challenging procedures such as endoscopic surgeries. Tissue sealants on the other hand are gaining market share steadily. Their demand is especially rising in the case of cosmetic and minimally invasive surgeries. Surgical staplers continue to generate the majority of sales. They have applications in many gynecologic, thoracic, and pediatric procedures but bariatric and emphysema market accounts for a major share.
North America is expected to have the largest share due to higher consumer base of aesthetic surgeries, spinal fusion, and rising numbers of hip and knee replacement surgeries. Asia Pacific is expected to register a lucrative growth owing to improvement in healthcare infrastructure, rising spending in the healthcare segment, new establishments of healthcare & diagnostic centers, and increased access to healthcare services. Major players of the surgical incision closure market are BTG plc, Cryolife, 3M healthcare, Ethicon, Covidien Plc., Smith and Nephew, Baxter International, Genzyme Biosurgery, Axya medical, Henkel Loctite Corporation and Tyco healthcare.
