CURRENT AND EMERGING WOUND CLOSURE PRODUCTS AND TECHNIQUES IN EUROPE AND THE U.S.

253 Pages | 62 Exhibits | 2003 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2007 Product Family: Market Reports




OVERVIEW:
In an effort to address the major barriers to the adoption of minimally invasive techniques in wound closure, manufacturers and researchers alike are racing to develop sutureless methods for wound closure. As a result, a variety of endoscopic suturing devices, energy-based technologies, and glues and sealants have appeared on the market in recent years. As the appropriate regulatory bodies worldwide approve more innovative products, dramatic changes may be seen in the segmentation of the wound closure products market.

Together, the wound closure devices markets in Europe and the U.S. are valued at approximately $3.4 billion. Of this, surgical sutures account for an estimated 50% of sales, staplers and staples for 29%, surgical sealants and glues for 9.5%, and wound closure strips for 3%. Over the next five years, burgeoning sales of surgical sealants and glues, automated suturing products, and energy-based closure devices are expected to drive the value of the combined European and U.S. wound closure devices market to nearly $3.9 billion.

This dynamic report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, technologies, current and forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in the European and U.S. wound closure technologies market. Covered topics include autologous-processed, collagen- and albumin-based, cyanoacrylate-based, fibrin, and polymer-based surgical sealants and glues; automated suturing devices; energy-based closure devices; surgical staplers; surgical sutures; and wound closure strips.
