Understanding market size can be crucial to evaluate opportunities and make informed decisions about market entry and exit. Medical device companies can identify attractive segments in respective markets as well as develop marketing strategies based on forecasts for those segments.
Adhesions are bands of scar-such as tissue that form abnormal fibrous connections joining tissue surfaces in abnormal locations. In general, any type of transperitoneal operation can lead to the formation of adhesions ranging from minimal scarring of serosal surface to firm agglutination of nearly all structures. However, post-surgical adhesion has a considerable epidemiological and clinical impact mostly due to tissue damage caused by surgical traumas. Gel surgical adhesion barriers are gel-based products directly applied or sprayed at the site (open or laparoscopic) of surgery to prevent adhesions between the tissue planes. Membrane surgical adhesion barriers are available in the form of fabrics, films and membranes.
The surgical adhesion barriers market in South Africa can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
