U.S. MARKETS FOR CURRENT AND EMERGING WOUND CLOSURE TECHNOLOGIES, 2001-2011

233 Pages | 51 Exhibits | 2002 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2011 Product Family: Market Reports




OVERVIEW:
One of the major barriers to the adoption of minimally invasive techniques in wound closure has been the difficulty associated with performing knot tying. Suturing is still performed with a needle, thread, and significant dexterity on the part of the surgeon. To address the need for less-invasive, less time-consuming approaches to closing surgical, traumatic and other wounds, as well as to promote faster healing, a variety of innovative closure technologies have been developed, including sutureless glues, sealants and energy-based technologies and endoscopic suturing devices. These innovations will dramatically alter the U.S. wound closure market in the coming years, and it is forecast that this marketplace, currently valued at approximately $1.5 billion, will enjoy expanding growth rates at the expense of the dominating but mature, flat-to-declining traditional markets for sutures and staples.

This report from Medtech Insight provides in-depth analysis of the traditional U.S. wound closure markets, including sutures, staples, and strips, as well the emerging markets for surgical sealants and glues, energy-based technologies and endoscopic suturing devices. Profiles of the major players in the wound closure market are also provided.
