Adhesion Barrier Market Trends


Increased obese population is driving the market growth


The increase in post-operative adhesion incidence is predicted to affect the market for adhesion barriers substantially. Risk of abdominal adhesion exists for 90% of individuals undergoing abdominal surgery, particularly laparotomies. Abdominal adhesion barriers form in only 10% of patients. Laparotomies are routinely performed in response to difficult appendicectomies, small intestine problems, gastrointestinal cancer, hysterectomy, and ectopic pregnancy. In the US, about 9 million procedures are performed on the abdomen and pelvis each year. Around 94% of C-sections result in adhesions, however with adhesiolysis and gastrointestinal surgery, that rate drops to between 65% and 75%. Non-surgical adhesions include, among other things, diverticular illnesses, abdominal TB, and inflammatory bowel disease. Endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory diseases are the two conditions that produce adhesion the most frequently.


In recent years, surgeons all over the world have increasingly used adhesion barrier agents. Women experience adhesions following gynecological postpartum treatments, which can result in various gynecological issues like infertility, persistent discomfort, and inflammation. During surgical procedures, this affects the adhesion barrier films that surgeons choose. Because of the problems caused by post-surgical adhesion, both total morbidity and treatment costs have increased. Sticky small intestinal blockage in North America has been associated with more than 300,000 hospital admissions, 850,000 days spent in hospitals, and a cost of roughly US$ 1.3 billion.


Due to urbanization and rising disposable incomes, sedentary lifestyles are being adopted by an increasing number of people globally. As a result, a variety of lifestyle issues, such as obesity, cancer, hypertension, and others, are becoming more prevalent. 39% of adults globally are overweight, and 9.8% of individuals have diabetes. Diabetes, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), significantly increases the risk of renal failure, strokes, lower limb amputations, heart attacks, blindness, and heart attacks. In addition, 26% of people have hypertension, and by 2030 that number is projected to reach 29%. Due to these conditions, it is more common for young people to develop diseases like cancer, stroke, and heart failure, which is increasing the demand for adhesion barriers. Thus, driving the adhesion barrier market revenue.

Adhesion Barrier Industry Developments


June 2022:The bio-regenerative medicine business CGBIO entered the Indonesian market with MEDICLORE, a fourth-generation sol-gel type anti-adhesion agent. When MEDICLORE is administered to the body, it changes from a sol state at ambient temperature to an extremely viscous gel state at body temperature. In order to prevent adhesion as the wound heals, this gel-like state serves as a physical barrier in the surgical site.


February 2022:In a statement from Gunze Limited, the company said that TENALEAF, the first sheet-type absorbable adhesion barrier made in Japan, has received medical device approval. The company plans to launch the gadget in the Japan market in March 2022 through its affiliate, Gunze Medical Japan. Gunze developed its absorbable adhesion barrier using cutting-edge absorbable material technology in an effort to provide a ground-breaking solution in this industry.
