Global Laparotomy Sponge Market 2015-2019

About laparotomy sponge

Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery (MIS), refers to a particular method of performing a medical operation that involves smaller incisions on the body, instead of large cuts. In this technique, the incision is far from the location of the operative area.

Hemorrhage or leakage of blood, as well as the discharge of bile and bowel contents may restrict the operative field, hindering surgeons to effectively perform open or laparoscopic surgeries. Along with suction devices, laparotomy sponges help in clearing the operative field of any such dispensable substance during surgeries.

A laparotomy sponge is a highly absorbent and tightly woven cotton gauze with radio-opaque tapes or a detectable X-ray string on the sides. The sponge is placed under the edge of the incision to protect soft tissues and exposed organs during operation. It absorbs blood and exudates from the incised region.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global laparotomy sponge market to grow at a CAGR of 8.06% during 2014-2019.

    Press Release

    Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Laparotomy Sponge Market 2015-2019.

    Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Laparotomy Sponge Market: Covidien, Derma Sciences, Medical Action Industries, Medline.

    Other Prominent Vendors in the market are A Plus International, Across Medical Disposables, AllCare, Allmed Medicals, B. Braun Melsungen, Cardinal Health, ClearCount Medical Solutions, Cremer, Deroyal, DUKAL, Fomed Industries, Frank Healthcare, Guangdatextile.

    Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said, “Production of laparotomy sponges by textile companies. Currently, the production of medical products is no longer limited to healthcare vendors alone. Rapid growth in the healthcare sector has provided opportunities to other sector companies as well to develop healthcare products. ”

    According to the report, one key driver of this market is the increased number of surgical procedures. The world over, there has been a gradual increase in cardiovascular disorders, spinal abnormalities, and brain tumors, which has led to an increase in the number of surgeries.

    Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the budget constraints impacting product pricing. Hospitals and clinics in developing countries have steadily increased their expenditure on medical services. We expect the demand for and cost of these services to continue to increase rapidly. However, healthcare budgets allocated for hospitals and clinics still remain limited.
