Adhesion Barrier Market is expected to attain an outstanding growth in upcoming years

The adhesion barriers market is expected to reach USD 806.4 million by 2023 from USD 570.7 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 7.2%. The increasing volume of surgeries and sports-related injuries, rising geriatric population, and the increasing awareness about adhesion formation & adhesion-related diseases are the major factors driving the growth of this market.

In this report, the adhesion barriers market is categorized based on product, formulation, application, and region. Based on products, the market is segmented into synthetic adhesion barriers and natural adhesion barriers. The synthetic adhesion barriers segment is expected grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Growth in this market segment can be attributed to its resorbable properties and its cost effectiveness.

Based on the type, the synthetic adhesion barriers market is further categorized into hyaluronic acid, regenerated cellulose, polyethylene glycol, and other synthetic adhesion barriers such as, combination products of polyethylene oxide and carboxymethylcellulose, icodextrin, silicone rubber, expanded polytetrafluorethylene (ePTFE) membrane, and hydrogel. In 2017, hyaluronic acid segment accounted for the largest share and is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. This is attributed to the widespread use of hyaluronic acid-based products for adhesion prevention in gynecological, pelvic, abdominal, and general surgeries.

On the basis of type of formulation, the market is further categorized into film, liquid, and gel formulations. The film fomulations accounted for the largest share of this market in 2017 and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The factors such as higher adoption of film-form adhesion barriers by surgeons in various surgeries, availability of ample clinical evidence supporting the safety and efficacy of these formulations, and growing preference towards usage of film formulations in various types of surgeries are responsible fro the growth of this market.

Based on application area, the market is further segmented into gynecological surgeries, general/abdominal surgeries, cardiovascular surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, neurological surgeries, reconstructive surgeries, urological surgeries, and other surgeries (such as ear, nose, throat, and burn surgeries). The gynecoological surgeries dominated the adhesion barriers market in 2017, however, neurological surgeries are estimated to register the highest growth during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is driven by the increasing focus of adhesion barrier manufacturers on the development of gel formulations for neurological surgeries.

Geographically, the adhesion barriers market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to factors such as large populations affected by chronic diseases in countries such as China and India, increase in the volume of surgical procedures in Asia Pacific countries, improving healthcare infrastructure, growing per capita income, rising medical tourism, and rising focus of key market players on this region.
