New Survey by Greystone Associates Examines Impact on Surgical and Wound Management Market

 

(Amherst, NH) –  With tens of millions of surgical procedures performed annually, the market for wound closure products and techniques is significant. In the U.S. alone, more than one hundred thousand surgeries are being performed daily. This market is expected to grow further as an aging world population creates increased demand for all types of surgical intervention, particularly cardiovascular, orthopedic, urological, and dermatological procedures. The emerging generation of wound closure products and technologies, comprised of biologically-derived and synthetic sealants and energy-based wound closure methods, are well-positioned to capitalize on this growth. 

The trend toward faster, simpler closure techniques is being driven in large part by strides in the processing of proteins possessing natural adhesion properties. “Biological sealants based on natural adhesion promoters such as fibrin, platelet gels, modified collagen, and recombinant proteins are gaining market share on synthetic sealants,” explains George Perros, Greystone’s Managing Director. “These advanced closure and sealing products and techniques save time, which equates to saving money.” Other emerging wound closure techniques include energy methods based on ultrasound and radio frequency.

These findings are contained in a new and comprehensive report: Advanced Wound Closure: Innovative Technology, Emerging Opportunities. The report contains a detailed assessment of advanced wound closure technology and products, profiles of market participants, industry data and forecasts, and detailed analysis of regulatory and market factors. Organized and written to be of maximum value to medical market professionals, technology providers, and market segment stakeholders, the report provides a detailed assessment of the growing potential for new and emerging wound closure technology.
