Hemostats Market Analysis | United States | 2016-2022 | MedCore
Hemostats, also known as anti-hemorrhagic agents are substances that promote hemostasis, the process which causes bleeding to stop. There are a number of topical hemostats used in surgeries. Topical hemostats are suitable for minor bleeding and oozing blood from injured capillaries and venules. Physiologic hemostasis occurs with vascular constriction and is a complex process in which blood changes from a fluid to a solid state in order to control tissue damage and bleeding. Thrombin binds to platelets and becomes activated. They activate fibrinogen into fibrin. The fibrin monomers combine to create fibrin structures that coagulate open arteries. Platelets aggregate at the injury site (the surgical incision) to form a temporary plug.

Thrombin has traditionally been the most popular hemostat due to its ability to rapidly cause clotting. However, as physicians become more aware of some of the safety concerns relating to using thrombin products, they will move towards plant-based and combination products, which are either more affordable or effective. Collagen-based hemostats represented the smallest segment in 2015, and will continue to do so through 2020. These hemostats are a well-established technology and will continue to have a stable presence in the market. Preferences for combination products that contain collagen will take market share from the collagen-only segment. Collagen-based hemostats have potential side effects which will limit the market. Over the forecast period, combination hemostats are expected to grow steadily and will overtake thrombin hemostats to represent the majority of the market. Many competitors have been putting a greater focus on their combination products. In addition, several products in this market are approved for multiple indications and surgical specialties, which creates greater growth potential in the market.
