The wound closure market is experiencing consistent unit sales growth supplemented by device innovation. Common products in the wound closure market, such as sutures, will continue to make up the largest portion of the market. However, growth in the overall market is directly correlated to other factors, such as the aging population, and the increasing occurrence of morbid obesity in the US. As a result, increased procedures like bariatric surgery are becoming more common and are expected to increase in popularity as the overall safety profiles of these procedures improve.

“Improved advanced wound closure devices, such as cyanoacrylate-based tissue adhesives, will gain popularity due to their increased healing capabilities compared to traditional sealants,” explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. “The market is expected to grow primarily due to increased use in shallow lacerations where the application of sutures or staples would otherwise be painful. These devices are also used in cosmetic applications to improve results.”

Other key findings from the iData Research report series entitled U.S. Market for Wound and Tissue Management:

Improved Product Efficiency
Improved wound management technology is allowing patients to spend less time in the operating room and shorten recovery time. Products such as staplers, ligating clip appliers, strips and tissue adhesives all aid in reducing the time needed to close a wound during and after surgery. These products have a strong appeal to hospitals not only due to their reasonable costs, but also because their time-saving advantages allow doctors and nurses alike to maximize patient throughput.

Leading Competitors
Ethicon (a Johnson & Johnson company) is the leading competitor in the wound closure market with over 50% market share in the US. Although Ethicon’s products are normally priced higher than the market average, their vast portfolio allows them to offer discounts by bundling their products.
