Medical Adhesives – Part 2: External & Internal Medical Applications

SpecialChem / Alain Morin – Jan 27, 2010

According to a recent report from the Freedonia Group, demand for medical and dental adhesives and sealants in the US is forecast to rise 7.6% per year to $1.8 billion in 2011 (from $1.3 billion in 2007 and $1.5 billion in 2009). The best opportunities are expected for cyanoacrylate, polyethylene glycol and various plasma and protein types. Cyanoacrylate adhesives are projected to see greater use in external tissue bonding applications. Market penetration of polyethylene glycol sealants in tisuuue bonding and sealant applications during cardiovascular surgical procedures as weel as development of expanded application in abdominal and cranial procedures, will also deliver growth. Plasma and protein sealants - including those based on albumin collagen and fibrin - will be promoted by the expanded use in surgery too. Five main types of adhesives or sealants are available for surgeons to use.
