New Technology Encourages US Medical Adhesives & Sealants Market

Posted on Thu, Jun 28, 2012

Here at Gleicher, we pride ourselves on being able to keep our customers up-to-date on the latest innovations in technology and products as they make their way into the market. Among the various solutions that Gleicher Manufacturing looks to provide to its customers are adhesives and sealants, which have recently made headlines due to projected growth in the medical industry.

As the United States medical adhesives and sealants market continues to shift away from traditional sutures and staples and towards more advanced adhesives, glues and sealants, it’s projected value is set to reach $2.3 billion by 2017, according to a brief report from Companies and Markets. Because of the rapidly aging affluent population and growing acceptance among medical practitioners, future growth for medical adhesives and sealants looks promising.

In addition, the US is positioned as the largest global market for medical adhesives and sealants due to the broad range of surgical and dental procedures that require medical adhesive and sealant products. However, growth in the medical and dental adhesives segment is not unique, as over-the-counter consumer application of adhesives and sealants for first-aid is increasingly prevalent.

As growth in these market segments, along with the use of medical adhesives and sealants gaining pre-eminence in the medical devices and equipment market, we here at Gleicher will continue to provide our loyal customers with the information they need! Whether your needs are medical-related or not, our goal is to help you find the right solution.
