Surgical sealants and adhesives are materials used to repair injured tissues, strengthened surgical wounds, binding the tissues together externally and internally after injury or surgery and even replace common stitching practices. Surgical sealants and adhesives are preferred over traditional methods for wound closure such as staples and suture due to their numerous advantages like efficacy, usability and safety in several situations in different tissues. They can be used in combination with sutures and staples for strengthening, in sealing leaks of fluids or gas and also treating emergency hemostasis, successfully. These products help wound healing and eliminates the need of sutures by forming a chemical bond or barrier to stop the body fluids or blood oozing after surgery or an injury. Global surgical sealants and adhesives market is growing substantially with increasing number of surgical procedures.
Inclination towards quicker, safer, simpler and minimally invasive surgical procedures has encouraged the growth of sutureless practices, such as the use of sealants and adhesive interfaces to restore functionality and integrity of soft tissue. These products largely eliminates the risk of blood-borne disease transmission, infection rate and tissue reactivity. Furthermore, presence of staple or suture materials in surgical injuries is considered to increase the risk of infections causing wound chronicity, retarding wound healing, and in turn, is life threatening for patients.
The growth of surgical sealant and adhesives market is driven by the growing demand for surgical services and rising concerns to decrease surgical injuries, blood loss and reduced postoperative wound infections. Also growing number of ageing population and increasing burden of chronic disease will propel the growth of surgical adhesives and sealants market. Additionally, surgical sutures and staples cause hatch marks, whereas surgical sealants and adhesives don’t leave any marks resulting in excellent cosmetic outcome. Increasing rate of surgeries, facilitating widespread R&D activities targeting surgical sealants and adhesives, is anticipated to sustenance long-term growth of the market.
Traditional substitutes to surgical sealants and adhesives are stiches and staples, which are anticipated to be replaced by these products, attributed to their better wound closure abilities, with nominal blood loss. These sealants and adhesives do not need to be removed and hence facilitate low pain operations. However, handling surgical sealants and adhesives demands for professionals specially trained to perform the procedures skillfully to achieve maximum advantage and to minimize complications. Also the high cost of these products and strict regulatory approvals, collectively hamper the growth of surgical sealants and adhesives market substantially over the forecast period.
