The surgical sealants and adhesives market consists of revenue generated from the sales of surgical sealants and adhesives. Surgical sealants and adhesives are materials used to repair injured tissues and prevent air & fluid leakages during or after the surgeries. These are used for minimizing blood losses, replacing staples and sutures for better closure, and strengthening wound area without limiting the tissue movement.
The global surgical sealants and adhesives market is expected to decline from $2.21 billion in 2019 to $1.33 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -39.8%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing. The treatment for patients suffering from COVID-19 has taken precedence as a result of which numerous non-essential surgeries have been cancelled or postponed, decreasing the demand for surgical sealants and adhesives. The market is then expected to recover and reach $2.81 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 28.3%.
