The hemostasis and tissue sealing agents market involves the study of wide range of hemostat, tissue sealant and adhesion barrier products which helps the surgeons to control bleeding during the surgery. These products play an important role in management of bleeding within the damaged blood vessels in surgical procedures. The market of hemostasis and tissue sealing agents is witnessing positive growth due to the introduction of technology advanced and cost effective hemostat and tissue sealing products by key companies. For example, in June 2013, Advance Medical Solution Group plc received approval for 2-octyl cyanoacrylate synthetic tissue adhesive.
The company also offers wide range of hemostasis and tissue sealant products such as RESORBA, ActivHeal and LiquiBand. Thus, wide range of product offering will boost the uptake of these products hence drive the market growth. Other factors such as aging population and rising number surgical procedures further drive the growth of the hemostasis and tissue sealing agents market globally. For example, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of people aged 65 years and above is expected to increase from 605 million to 2 billion by 2050. Aging population will boost the number of people undergoing surgical intervention which would in turn stimulate the demand of hemostat and tissue sealing agents. In addition, hemostat and tissue sealant products are still at a nascent stage in developing regions such as India and Latin America and expected to witness high growth rate in near future owing to the approval of new hemostat products by regulatory authorities. All these factors collectively fuel the revenues of hemostasis and tissue sealing agents market during the study period, hence boost market growth. However, strict regulatory policies coupled with high cost of the products will restrain the market growth worldwide.
