The global medical adhesive market, along with its applications, has witnessed a high growth for the past few years and this growth is estimated to increase in the coming years. Some of the growth of adhesives in the disposable medical device market will result from improved processing methods and technology and not just new adhesive advancements. Application and curing equipment play a critical role in the design and manufacture of these devices. The aging population and advances in medical procedures will continue to fuel the growth of the medical adhesives in a host of areas, including drug-delivery systems, catheters, implants, and therapeutic devices.

The global medical adhesive market is projected to reach $10,015.67 million by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 9.65% between 2014 and 2019.

Growth in the Asia Pacific region is expected to outpace that of both the US and Europe. Asia Pacific growth is forecast to be about 10.09% during the period as more manufacturing is shifted to that region, although much of the finished product will be manufactured for US and European healthcare markets. Dental adhesives, used for restorative and for dental appliance fabrication, are estimated to account for $ 1,481.54 million in 2013, but are generally used by dental practitioners in small unit dose dispensers and, due to the widespread use of fluoride treatments for recent generations, is not expected to show significant growth.

This study basically aims to estimate the global market of medical adhesive for 2014 and to project its demand by 2019. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global medical adhesives market. We have used various secondary sources such as directories, industry journals, and databases to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of the medical adhesives market. The primary sources–experts from related industries and suppliers–have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of medical adhesives.

Competitive scenarios of the top players in the medical adhesives market have been discussed in detail. We have also profiled leading players of this industry with their recent developments and other strategic industry activities. These include key medical adhesives manufacturers such as Bostik Ltd.

The medical adhesive market is estimated to reach 1,509.10 kilotons by volume by 2019, signifying a firm CAGR of over 8.81% between 2014 and 2019.

The global market, along with its applications, showed a high growth in the past few years and is estimated to continue in the coming years. An increase in the demand in medical devices & equipments and internal & external medical applications, and other applications will be the key influencing factors for the global medical adhesives market. Miniaturization of medical devices is an on-going trend that requires more micro-application of adhesives at very high production speeds will eventually drive the medical adhesives market.

Currently, the north America region is the largest consumer of medical adhesive while Asia-Pacific  is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR. The countries such as China, Japan, and India is expected to lead the Asia-Pacific medical adhesives market, with China having the largest share in the regional volumetric consumption of medical adhesives. The market volume of medical adhesives is comparatively low in the RoW region, but the estimated growth for the region is second highest after Asia-Pacific.

The North America and the Europe regions are the most active markets in terms of strategic initiatives, owing to their market demands. The flexible packaging application has led the rapid growth in the medical adhesives market.

The significant medical adhesives manufacturers include Bostik Ltd. (France), Henkel AG & Company (Germany), B. Braun Melsungen AG (Germany), 3M Company (U.S.), CryoLife, Inc. (U.S.), Chemence Ltd. (U.K.), Cyberbond LLC (U.S.), Itac Ltd. (U.S.), Ethicon Inc. (U.S.), Covidien Ltd. (Ireland), GluStitch Inc. (Canada), Adhezion Biomedical (U.S.), Cohera Medical, Inc.
