Adhesion Barrier Market Overview
The Adhesion Barrier Market size is estimated to reach $885 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period 2022-2027. An adhesion barrier is a medical implant that helps restrict abnormal internal scarring after surgical procedures. The implant allows for the separation of internal tissues and organs while healing. Once the healing process is complete, the barrier will safely dissolve away. Adhesion Barrier products can either be synthetic, such as Hyaluronic Acid, Regenerated Cellulose, and Polyethylene Glycol, or Natural barriers such as Fibrin, Protein, and Collagen. The rapid global rise in the geriatric population is anticipated to drive the Adhesion Barrier Market during the forecast period 2022-2027. However, the various drawbacks and low frequency of their use during surgical procedures act as a key challenge for the Adhesion Barrier industry.

Adhesion Barrier Market Segment Analysis - By Applications
Based on Application, the Adhesion Barrier Market is segmented into Cardiovascular Surgeries, General/Abdominal Surgeries, Gynecological Surgeries, Neurological Surgeries, Orthopedic Surgeries, Reconstructive Surgeries, Urological Surgeries, and Other Surgeries. The Gynecological Surgeries segment is anticipated to have the largest share of the market in 2021 and is poised to dominate the market during the forecast period 2022-2027. This is attributed to the rise in the number of gynecologic laparoscopy procedures, ovarian cystectomies, pelvic surgeries, and laparotomy procedures. Adhesion barriers help reduce the risk of developing clinically significant adhesions, especially among patients who have endometriosis/pelvic inflammatory disease or are undergoing a myomectomy. The Cardiovascular Surgeries segment is projected to grow the fastest at a CAGR of 7.7% owing to the global increase in cardiovascular diseases, and risk factors such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension.
Adhesion Barrier Market Segment Analysis - By End User
The Adhesion Barrier Market based on End User can be further segmented into Hospitals, Clinics, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, and Others. The Hospitals segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2021. This can be attributed to the presence of multiple specialized departments and highly experienced surgeons in hospitals. This enables them to provide superior care to a large number of patients simultaneously. Moreover, hospitals can provide all the essential services such as screening, diagnosis, consultation, surgery, and post-surgery therapy in one location, thereby increasing convenience and reducing costs. However, the Ambulatory Surgical Centers segment is also anticipated to witness a significant CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period owing to their lower surgery costs. These facilities are focused on providing same-day surgical care and therefore, they are an attractive choice for minor surgeries that do not require long-term hospitalizations.
Adhesion Barrier Market Segment Analysis - By Geography
The Adhesion Barrier Market based on Geography can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Rest of the World. The North American segment is projected to dominate the Adhesion Barrier market during the forecast period 2022-2027 with a market share of 32% owing to the presence of a highly developed healthcare infrastructure, favorable reimbursement policies for Adhesion Barriers, high patient awareness levels, and growing geriatric population in the region. Moreover, the rapid rise in lifestyle diseases and cancer in North America is another major factor contributing to its growth. The Asia Pacific region is predicted to register the fastest growth owing to the increase in disposable income, rising healthcare infrastructure development, and growing public healthcare funding in major emerging economies like China and India.
Adhesion Barrier Market Drivers
An Increase in Geriatric Population is Projected to Drive Adhesion Barrier Market Growth
There were around 727 million persons over the age of 65 in 2020 and constituted 9.3% of the overall population. The geriatric population is predicted to reach 16% by 2050. This is anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period as the geriatric population is more prone to diseases such as cardiovascular disorders, cancers, orthopedic diseases, and neurological conditions. For instance, the average age of heart attack in the US is 74.5 for men and 78.9 for women. Meanwhile, the average age of prostate cancer diagnosis is around 66. This is increasing the number of surgeries performed for treatment and thereby, generating demand for Adhesion Barriers.
The rise in Lifestyle disorders is Anticipated to Boost Product Demand
Owing to the growth in global disposable income and urbanization, more people are following a sedentary lifestyle. This is causing an increase in lifestyle diseases such as obesity, hypertension, cancers, and diabetes. Around 39% of the global adult population is overweight and 9.8% suffer from diabetes. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke, and lower-limb amputations. Furthermore, 26% of the population suffers from hypertension and this is projected to reach 29% by 2025. The growth of such disorders is increasing the prevalence of diseases such as cancer, stroke, and heart failure among young adults, which is driving the demand for Adhesion Barriers.
Adhesion Barrier Market Challenges
The High Cost of Surgery is Anticipated to Hamper the Growth of Adhesion Barrier Market
The high surgery costs charged by healthcare facilities in developed regions such as the US is hampering growth opportunities. For instance, heart bypass surgery can cost around $70,000 to $200,000 or more, and heart transplant surgery can reach around $800,000. Moreover, for patients not covered by health insurance, brain surgery procedures can cost between $50,000 and $150,000 or more. This is a major challenge owing to the fact that the median household income of the US is only $67,521, making these procedures unaffordable to the majority of the population. According to the American Journal of Public Health, around 66.5% of bankruptcies in the US occurred due to high medical expenses.
Rising Demand for Minimally Invasive Surgeries is Projected to Limit Growth Opportunities
The rising global popularity of minimally invasive surgeries is having a negative impact on Adhesion Barriers. As they were designed 2 or 3 decades ago, Adhesion Barriers were meant to be used during open surgery. However, this also made most of them unsuitable to be used during modern minimally invasive surgical procedures. Moreover, minimally invasive surgeries significantly reduce internal tissue scarring, which eliminates the need for Adhesion Barriers. These limitations and the disregard for requiring barriers in minimally invasive surgery have impeded research and development of barriers suitable for minimally invasive surgery. Only around 1 in 7 surgeons use Adhesion Barriers during their surgical procedures as most believe they are unnecessary and expensive.
