The growth in the aging population resulting due to increasing life expectancy rate & declining birth rates is driving the global wound closure products market

Wound closure products are antiseptic in nature, which prevents wounds from any bacterial attack.  Most wound closure products spread tension along the entire gap in the skin, adding consistent strength to the gaps, formed when the skin is stressed. They also prevent wound dehiscence and gap formation to accelerate wound healing process. These products are used in various internal surgical procedures, such as bariatric surgery, neurosurgical procedures, cardio surgery, orthopedic surgery, gynecology surgery, and ophthalmic. The products are also used to minimize the dead space and control incidence rates of hematoma and seroma, which in turn causes better wound closure.  The key drivers for the global wound closure products market are growth in aging population, growth in the number of surgeries and growth in road accidents.

Furthermore, increased burn cases across the globe and growing incidence of chronic wounds is also impacting the demand for the market. Aging people are more prone to chronic diseases, such as neurological disorders and cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes, that leads to increasing demand of wound closure products. The prevalence of chronic diseases, such as stroke, respiratory diseases, heart diseases and cancer, is increasing due to changing lifestyle and insufficient preventive care. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 117 million people in the U.S. had one or more chronic health conditions in 2012. According to a report by WHO in 2016, approximately 1.25 million people die each year because of road traffic crashes, and approximately 20 to 50 million people suffer from non-fatal injuries. A variety of factors like radiation, electricity, heat chemicals and friction causes burns. These factors results in loss of tissue, skin and blood vessels and creates demand for wound closure products
