"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
In October 2016, Ethicon US, LLC. a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. announced that it received FDA approval for the company’s Evarrest fibrin sealant patch indicated to be used in a broad range of surgical procedures. The fibrin sealant patch is a two-component hemostatic patch, which contains, fibrinogen and thrombin derived from human plasma embedded in flexible composite patch either made of collagen or cellulose. Since the fibrin sealant patch brings both human fibrinogen and thrombin to the bleeding site, it does not rely on patient blood having adequate levels of fibrinogen to achieve hemostasis. A rising trend in the adoption of fibrin sealant patch is expected due to the various medical benefits of the innovative product offers. The fibrin sealant patches provide excellent enhancements in efficacy in surgery because they are easily combined with manual pressure to arrest bleeding. Additionally, the usability of the fibrin sealant patch has improved because they may be stored at room temperature and they two-component in packages ready for immediate use, and this is projected to increase the acceptance of the product during surgeries. Contrarily, liquid hemostatic products are more complex to prepare as it requires thawing, mixing and/or applicator loading.
Key Market Driver -
Growing number of surgeries across the globe
Key Market Restraint -
Risk of anaphylaxis and blood-borne disease transmission in addition to high cost of fibrin sealant patch
An increasing number of surgical procedures across the globe is expected to boost the global fibrin sealant patch market value during the forecast period. According to the America Hospital Association survey (2014), an estimated 17.2 million ambulatory hospital visits or inpatient stays required invasive, therapeutic surgery in the United States. Certain drawbacks of current hemostatic products which include limitations with efficacy and suboptimal ease-of-use are projected to increase the adoption of fibrin sealant patch in forthcoming years. One of the major advantages of fibrin sealant patch is that it can achieve hemostasis within 3-4 minutes of application.
Use of fibrin sealant causes anaphylactic reactions which may lead to further surgical complications. Reported cases of anaphylaxis which are caused due to the fibrin sealant patches are one of the factors expected to restrain the global fibrin sealant patch market growth during the forecast period. Additionally, the comparatively higher cost of fibrin sealant patch to that of traditional hemostatic products is projected to restrain the fibrin sealant market growth. High risk of transmission of viral and/or prion diseases due to the use of human pooled plasma in the fibrin sealant patch is expected to harm the growth of fibrin sealant patch.
The major companies covered in the global fibrin sealant patch market report include Ethicon US, LLC. Baxter and others.
As per the current fibrin sealant patch market trends, hospitals are holding the major share of the global fibrin sealant patch market due to the high requirement of hemostatic patches during surgeries.
