The surgical incision closures market has been forecast to reach a value of $14.8 billion by 2018, driven by the increasing number of surgical procedures and the rise in demand for advanced closure products.

The effective closure of surgical incisions is an essential post-surgical process to regain anatomical function and tissue integrity.

As failure to close surgical incision can lead to critical and severe scarring, infection, and other complications, a broad spectrum of devices have been developed for surgical closure of tissue.

Wound care products have evolved over the years from traditional to advanced and active therapy devices driven by increasing volume of surgical procedures in disciplines such as cardiology, obstetrics/gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, and plastic surgery.

Developments in the surgical incision closures market is defined by the principles of surgery including effective hemostasis, adequate blood supply and appropriate handling of tissue for better and safer surgical results.

Advanced wound closure technologies, which include tissue sealants, hemostats, adhesives and adhesion prevention products, are expected to generate attractive business opportunities.

These products offer efficient wound healing mechanism as well as minimize the risk of post-surgical complications.

According to a recent market report, 'Surgical Incision Closures: A Global Strategic Business Report,' tissue sealants represents the fastest growing market segment backed by benefits such as reduced recovery time, less trauma, and superior cosmetic outcomes.

Innovation in tissue sealants is helping open up newer growth avenues for players in the market.

Hemostatic agents given their rapid blood clotting properties are increasingly becoming popular to prevent the risk of blood leakage at the wound site.

With new innovations in the pipeline, demand for advanced wound closure products is set to expand further in the coming years.
