Executive Summary

•Medical adhesives and sealants in this study only include bioapplications for products that come into direct contact with patients.
•This research study does not include adhesives and sealants used in medical devices or any other medical applications.
•This research study profiles adhesives and sealants for the following segments: internal medicine, external medicine, dental, and others.
•Internal medicine includes cardio, pulmonary, vascular, and neurological surgical applications.
•External medicine includes tissue-bonding and wound-care applications.
•Dental applications include dental sealing and restoration.
•Others includes ophthalmological and bone-related applications.
•Adhesives and sealants covered in this study include cyanoacrylates, hydrogel, polyethylene glycol (PEG), fibrin, and other natural-based sealants.
•Cyanoacrylates and PEG are the two major polymers that have high growth potential. Biological properties and ease of use give competitive advantages for these two polymers over others.
•The different types of sealants include fibrin sealants, collagen-based sealants, and synthetic sealants.
•Only a thin line of differentiation exists between hemostats and sealants. Hemostats are products that stop blood loss, whereas a sealant can seal air, fluid, and blood leaks. Hence, there is a growing demand for sealants compared to existing hemostats.
•The North American medical adhesives and sealants market revenue was $xx.x million in 2011.
•Market revenue is expected to reach $xxx.x million by 2018 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of xx.x percent.
•The aging baby boomer population lends to an increase of more accidents and surgeries in the United States, which drives the market for medical adhesives and sealants.
•Medical adhesives that are biocompatible, nonirritating, and durable are opening niches in direct-patient applications.
•Product life cycles are fairly long compared to other medical sectors, making the market stable in terms of growth, margins, and expectations.
•Internal medicine is a major sector with a high potential for growth. Cardio surgery is expected specifically to contribute to this sector’s revenue increase.
•Dental adhesives and sealants is a well-established market, which is expected to grow at a slower pace than other market segments. However, products, such as pit and fissure sealants, will have strong gains as a result of the role they play in cavity prevention.
•Customization of adhesives for target-specific applications, such as spine sealants and vascular sealants, is an emerging trend in the market.
•A growing demand exists for sealants used for preventing wound infection and for ensuring a faster healing process.
•Product safety, biocompatibility, and ease of use are the major driving factors in this market.
