Laparotomy Sponge Market Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026

 

Laparotomy sponges also called laparotomy pads or absorbent pads used for hemorrhage evacuation during abdominal surgeries. Laparotomy sponges are used for absorbing viscera around the surgical site to obtain a clear view of internal organs during surgery. Laparotomy sponges are mainly made of 100% cotton to maximize absorbency. Other materials used for laparotomy sponges are 100% rayon chamois, rayon–polypropylene chamois, and 20/80 nylon–polyester composite towels. Laparotomy sponges are prone to retained surgical bodies.

 

According to the Macedonian journal of medical sciences, sponges are the most common foreign bodies left after surgery in 2017. Manufacturers have introduced X-ray detectable or barcode-tagged laparotomy sponges, which are marked with X-ray detectable strips or strands of thread to reduce the likelihood of sponges remaining in the body.

 

In the near future, increasing bariatric surgery is expected to fuel the growth of the laparotomy sponge market. Between 2011 and 2014, the prevalence of obesity among U.S. adults was 36.5%, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Further, according to an article published by PubMed, the total number of bariatric procedures performed was 468,609, worldwide in 2013. Additionally, the United Kingdom National Bariatric Surgery Registry (NBSR) reported in February 2017 that 5,192 primary operations were performed in the year 2012-2013, along with 336 revision operations.

 

According to some sources, in 2015-2016, the rate of primary surgeries reduced to 5,056, whereas revision surgeries increased up to double as compared to 2012 - 2013, i.e. 648 bariatric surgeries. Furthermore, the increasing number of obese population is expected to increase the bariatric surgery rate proportionately during the forecast period. Moreover, the high rate of open abdominal surgeries is driving the laparotomy sponge market growth.

 

An increasing number of cesarean-based deliveries are also expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. According to Eurostat statistics, in 201cesareanean section surgery performed in European Union reached up to 1.36 million, of which more than 220,000 were performed in Germany, over 200,000 were performed in the U.K.
