Rising healthcare expenditure in the Asia-Pacific region could take the market past $8 million by 2022, finds Frost & Sullivan

Stringent regulations and a heightened need for faster, more effective, and less expensive surgeries are creating tremendous growth opportunities for global biomedical adhesives and sealants. Furthermore, increasing technology adoption rates and rising healthcare expenditure in the Asia-Pacific region will augment growth prospects. Frost & Sullivan’s latest analysis foresees the global biomedical adhesives and sealants market to expand at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2017 until 2022 and reach $8,108.8 million.

healthcare“The global biomedical adhesive and sealants market is entering a growth phase with several manufacturers focused on developing 100 percent bio-based products such as fibrin and collagen,” said Prajakta Laxman ThoratSenior Research Analyst, Chemicals and Materials, EIA at Frost & Sullivan. “The adoption of biomedical adhesives and sealants in ophthalmological applications such as long-duration contact lens and corneal implants and the development of biomimetic tissue adhesives will fast track growth opportunities.”

With innovative companies such as 3M, Ethicon, Cryolife, and Baxter dominating the market due to their strong presence across regions and recognised products, Thorat recommends that players pursue a broad market coverage strategy by improving their product portfolios with products that can be customised to end-user specifications, such as fast curing, prolonged shelf life, improved adhesion strength, and easy application. Further factors imperative to growth include:

  • Promoting cost-effective products with improved performance that are compliant with regulations mandated by international organisations
  • Expanding manufacturing operations to developing and emerging economies such as China, India, and Southeast Asia that have high-growth prospects due to increased healthcare expenditure
  • Focusing on providing efficient products for wound care and tissue bonding, as there is huge potential in external applications

“Market growth is hindered by physicians who are comfortable using traditional products, such as staples, sutures, and skin strips, for surgical and wound closure procedures, and are skeptical about using adhesives and sealants,” noted Thorat. “Furthermore, new technologies and products are deterred from entering the market, as medical practitioners prefer using established brands.”
