Global Laparotomy Sponges Market 2016-2020

About Laparotomy Sponges

A laparotomy sponge is a highly absorbent and tightly-woven cotton gauze with radiopaque tapes or a detectable X-ray string on the sides. Laparotomy sponges are of two types: sterile and non-sterile. The sponge is placed under the edge of an incision to protect soft tissues and exposed organs during surgery. It absorbs blood and exudates from the incised region at target site. There has been a surge in life-threatening conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, and neurological disorders across the world that has led to a soaring need for medication and often surgeries, both critical and normal.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global laparotomy sponges market to grow at a CAGR of 7.94% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is manufacturing of laparotomy sponges by textile companies. The production of medical products is no longer limited to healthcare companies alone. Rapid growth in the healthcare sector has provided opportunities to other sector companies as well to develop healthcare products. For instance, electronics companies are manufacturing healthcare IT products. Similarly, a few local textile vendors are also producing laparotomy sponges and other medical dressing products, such as bandages and operating room towels.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing number of abdominal laparotomy procedures. The growing number of laparotomy procedures is expected to drive the global laparotomy sponges market. The increasing number of laparotomy procedures is due to increased prevalence of intestinal diseases. Further, the growing number of bariatric surgeries are expected to drive the demand in the market, owing to the rise in obesity cases.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is complications involved in the usage of laparotomy sponges. Despite several efforts by hospitals and vendors, retained laparotomy sponges continue to be the number one reported complication after surgery. Retained surgical sponges and other surgical foreign bodies unintentionally left at surgical sites are rare medical errors that have the potential to cause harm to the individual.
