Adhesion Barriers Market By Type (Synthetic Barriers, Hyaluronic Acid, Polyethylene Glycol (PEG), Regenerated Cellulose, Others, Natural Barriers, Fibrin, Collagen & Protein), By Formulation (Gels, Liquid, Film, Gynecology, Abdominal General Surgery, Cardiovascular, Neurology, Orthopedic, Urology, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects, Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026

Adhesion barriers are used for reducing internal scarring and separating the internal organs and tissues therefore avoiding organ adhesion. These products are predominantly employed in abdominal, orthopedic, reconstructive, urological and gynecological surgeries. Of the various formulations available, adhesion barriers film based products are the most widely used. As the global rate of surgical procedures is consistently increasing, the demand and uptake of adhesion barriers is also expected to rise correspondingly. Adhesion barriers are viewed as an effective tool to reduce the post-surgical complications arising from adhesion of tissues or organs, therefore reducing the risk of follow-up procedures and overall procedural cost. Growing product visibility and competitive prices of adhesion barriers are also expected to assist the market growth during the forecast period. 

Apart from the increasing number of abdominal and cardiovascular interventions taking place worldwide, the growing incidence of cancers demanding surgical intervention is also driving the demand for adhesion barriers. In the developing countries, growing awareness regarding the benefits associated with adhesion barriers in reducing the treatment costs will be a prime driver. Further expansion in application areas of these products and product universality across several anatomies will serve as significant growth opportunity during and beyond the forecast period.

"Synthetic Adhesion Barriers to Enjoy the Dominant Market Position"

At present, over half of the adhesion barriers market is occupied by synthetic barrier products. Greater presence in the market is a key attribute of the dominance of this segment. Additionally, the cost effectiveness of synthetic adhesion barriers is better than the natural product variants. This segment is further categorized as Hyaluronic Acid, Polyethylene Glycol (PEG), Regenerated Cellulose and other synthetic products. Among these, the demand for PEG based adhesion barriers is anticipated to be the fastest during the forecast period. Its better biocompatibility and absorption capabilities support the high demand. .

Based on formulation types, the global adhesion barriers market is segmented into gels, liquids and films. Films occupy a significant share in the global market. Higher adoption of film/mesh in postoperative procedures, particularly in gynecology and abdominal surgeries along with ease of use are attributed to prominent position of films segment. Gel formulations will progress at faster rate during the forecast period. These formulations are sterile, highly viscous and transparent, and are better barriers to prevent adhesions. Liquid barriers are made of glucose polymers and prevent tissue surfaces from adhesion both during and after surgery. Adept, and Bio-Gide Perio are the most commonly used liquid barriers.

"Asia Pacific Estimated to be the Fastest Progressing Regional Market"

Large procedural rate of surgical interventions, swift approval to novel products and favorable reimbursements are the major factors that have made North America the largest regional market for adhesion barriers. North America accounts for approximately 34% of the global market share, and is followed by Europe. Domicile of several major market players also supports the dominant position of North America and Europe markets. Asia Pacific is the fastest progressing regional market for adhesion barriers. A major factor supporting the rapid growth of Asia Pacific market are growing awareness about the benefits associated with adhesion barriers in general surgeries in terms of reducing the rate of follow-up surgeries for eradicating adhesion complications. Increasing count of surgeries in the region due to rapidly increasing pool of chronic diseases and geriatric population, and flourishing medical tourism are some other prime reasons that are driving the growth of Asia Pacific market.
