U.S. MARKETS FOR CURRENT AND EMERGING WOUND CLOSURE TECHNOLOGIES

192 Pages | 44 Exhibits | 2009 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2013 Product Family: Market Reports




OVERVIEW:
In 2008, more than 100 million wounds were treated in U.S. hospitals; these included surgical wounds; traumatic wounds; pressure, arterial, venous, and diabetic ulcers; burns; and amputations. In the same year, treatment of these wounds generated nearly $3.5 billion in wound closure product sales. Over the forecast period covered by this report, sales of traditional and emerging wound closure products are expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 3.5%, reaching approximately $4.1 billion in the year 2013.

This new report by Medtech Insight presents a detailed overview of the U.S. traditional and emerging wound closure products market. Major topics covered by this report include a an overview of the physiology of wound closure; a discussion of traditional wound closure products such as sutures, stapling products, and wound closure strips; a discussion of emerging wound closure products such as surgical sealants and glues, energy-based closure devices, automated suturing devices, and negative pressure wound therapy products; and analyses of the sales and leading competitors in each of these markets.
