11.25.2021 · Posted in Writing and Speaking

With the surging disposable income of people and the rising health concerns, people from both developed and developing economies are spending heavily on healthcare services. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the U.S., the total national healthcare expenditure was $3.2 trillion in 2015 and the per capita national healthcare expenditure stood at $9,990. Furthermore, according to the reports published by the U.K. Office for National Statistics (ONS), the total healthcare expenditure in the U.K. was $282.8 billion in 2015.

From the above-mentioned data, it is clear that the healthcare expenditure of many countries is surging sharply, primarily because of the growing disposable income of people, soaring medical awareness among people, and rapid advancements in surgical facilities. Owing to this reason, patients diagnosed with different chronic ailments are opting for surgeries, which is, in turn, fueling the expansion of the surgical glue market. Besides this factor, the mushrooming population of geriatric people is also propelling the demand for surgical glue across the world.

As per the World Population Ageing 2020 report published by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), the population of people aged 65 years or above will rise from 727 million in 2020 to more than 1.5 billion by 2050. As geriatric people are highly vulnerable to various diseases, such as cardiovascular illnesses, neurological diseases, diabetes, and cancer, on account of their low immunity levels and need longer recovery time, their soaring population is positively impacting the worldwide demand for surgical glue.

Because of the aforementioned factors, the revenue of the surgical glue market is expected to surge from $3,810.5 million in 2017 to $6,936.5 million by 2023. According to the estimates of the market research company, P&S Intelligence, the market will progress at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2018 to 2023 (forecast period). Cyanoacrylate, glutaraldehyde glue, collagen-based compound, hydrogel, and fibrin sealant are the most widely used types of surgical glue across the globe. Amongst these, the demand for fibrin sealant was found to be the highest during the last few years.

Thus, the demand for surgical glue is certain to skyrocket in the upcoming years, primarily because of the surging number of surgeries, growing prevalence of chronic diseases, mushrooming population of geriatric people, and soaring healthcare expenditure of several countries around the world.
