Wound closure products are designed to join the exposed edges of a wound together, which helps in faster healing of wound. The main purpose of using these products is to prevent blood loss, reduce recovery time and prevention from infectious agents. The various types of wound closure products include sutures, hemostats, surgical staples, adhesive and tissue sealants, and wound closure strips. They are commonly used for the treatment of injuries, lacerations, during and after surgical procedures, and to treat wounds, burn cases and ulcers in humans.

Absorbable wound closure products are assimilated by the body and non-absorbable wound closure products are removed after utilization. Absorbable wound closure products also reduce the scaring of tissue produced during the healing process. Various synthetic materials, such as nylon, prolene, medical grade steel, polyester, chromium and titanium alloys are used for their manufacturing. In addition, biomaterial, such as fibrin, collagen, gelatin and thrombin are also used for manufacturing of wound closure products.

However, the high cost of wound closure products coupled with high technical assistance required for the utilization of wound closure products is the key restraint in the growth of the global wound closure products market. In addition, presence of alternative wound care products, such as gauge, sponge, gauge sponge and bandages limits the utilization of wound closure products despite their better effectiveness. Alternative wound care products are used for wound cleaning, to absorb blood and fluids and to maintain hygienic conditions. In addition, these dressings are also used with therapeutic ointments to accelerate the wound healing process.
