VANCOUVER, BC --(Marketwired - July 27, 2016) - According to a new series of reports on the Asia-Pacific markets for wound and tissue management by iData Research (www.idataresearch.com), the China, India and Japan hemostats markets are increasing in value year after year, but the market remains very price sensitive. As a result, coupled with a lack of reimbursement for advanced hemostatic products in the region, the less expensive oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC) based products, gelatin sponges and local hemostatic gauzes account for a dominant share of the hemostat market in terms of volume and value.
The market for hemostats in Asia-Pacific includes ORC, thrombin, collagen, gelatin and combinations of thrombin with passive hemostatic agents, as well as polysaccharide, first responder hemostats and locally produced hemostatic gauze sheets. Unit sales in the Indian hemostat market are expected to more than double by 2022. The Chinese market for hemostats is expecting nearly double-digit growth over the forecast period while the average selling price (ASP) of hemostatic products in the region is expected to steadily decline over the same period. However, factors such as an expansion of private hospital chains, a shift to minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures, increase in government spending on health care and growing awareness of the benefits of active hemostats such as reduced surgical times are expected to contribute towards higher sales and ASP of the more expensive thrombin and combination hemostats.
"The interest in patient safety has driven the hemostat industry to seek safer alternatives," explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. "More expensive synthetic hemostats, which are free of animal- or human-derived products, are expected to become popular alternatives among surgeons in the Asia-Pacific region."
Ethicon is the leading competitor in the Asia-Pacific hemostat market. Its products include Surgicel® and Surgiflo®. The Surgicel® family of absorbable hemostats consists of ORC-based products, which include different variants such as fibrillary, besides the regular inexpensive version. Ethicon is able to bundle several of its products together, which protects it from the price wars between local manufacturers.
The remaining combined hemostat market share of over 50% across Asia-Pacific is split between Aegis Lifesciences, B.Braun, Biocer, EU Care, Hemcon Medical Technologies, Meril Life Sciences, MIL Laboratories Pvt. Ltd, Stryker, C.R.Bard (Davol), Hangzhou Singclean Medical Products Co Ltd, Wuxi BIOT Biology Technology Co. Ltd, Beijing Datsing Bio-Tech Co.Ltd, Shenzhen Lian Da Sponge Product Co. Ltd, Takeda Pharmaceuticals and other local distributors and manufacturers of hemostatic gauze products.
