Adhesion Barrier Market Rising Number of Laparotomies across the Globe is Expected to Boost the Market Growth at a CAGR of 7.32% During the Forecast Period of 2019 to 2025 :

Pune, India, February 2019/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published its half-cooked research report on the Global Adhesion Barrier Market.

Market Highlights

According to MRFR analysis, Global Adhesion Barrier Market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.32% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025 and expected to reach USD 928.78 Million by 2025.

The Global Adhesion Barrier Market is expected to grow at a stable pace. The increasing surgical procedures for small bowel obstruction, infertility, & chronic pelvic pain, cost-effective prevention of adhesions, and increasing product development, among others, is expected boost the growth of the market. However, the risk of using adhesion barrier in patients with a history of hypersensitivity and the choice of using adhesion barriers among surgeons have been major factors hampering the growth of the market.

Abdominal surgery is one of the most common reasons for adhesions; it is estimated that about 70-85% of all adhesions are attributed to abdominal surgery. The majority of the laparoscopy procedure leads to adhesions. Gallbladder disease is one of the most common procedures done in the United States with more than 1.2 million cholecystectomies done annually. Furthermore, annually in the US, it is projected that about 400,000 laparotomies are performed for small bowel obstruction. Likewise, in Europe, 500,000 laparoscopy surgeries are performed per year. These factors are expected to positively impact the growth of the market. 

Regional Analysis
