Laparotomy Sponge Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Production, Consumption, Revenue, Company Analysis and Forecast 2021-2030

Published Date : Apr 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Laparotomy Sponge market size is expected to be worth around US$ 11.4 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Laparotomy Sponge market size was valued at US$ 813.5 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 17.6% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Rising disease burden and subsequent improvement in treatment alternatives, growing geriatric population, and a mounting number of cesarean deliveries are among key trends contributing to the growth of the market. Furthermore, R&D initiatives undertaken by leading players to improve counting and detection of sponges to prevent incidences of retained surgical items (RSI) are driving the market.

The number of abdominal surgeries performed every year is increasing tremendously owing to a rise in the prevalence of abdominal disorders. Cesarean section and cholecystectomy (removal of gall bladder) are among the top ten most commonly performed surgeries in the U.S. Growing prevalence of cancer is leading to an upswing in laparotomy procedures for biopsies, which in turn is anticipated to provide a fillip to the market.

Moreover, the development of technologically advanced sponge counting and detection systems is estimated to help the market gain significant traction over the coming years. For example, in June 2007, ClearCount Medical received FDA clearance for SmartSponge System. It was reportedly the world’s first RFID system for detection and counting of surgical towels and sponges to replace the manual counting method.

Various initiatives are being undertaken to reduce the incidence of RSI. A pediatric teaching hospital in Boston, Children’s Hospital Boston, conducted a quality improvement study for eliminating incorrect counts and count discrepancies. This study was focused on educating perioperative staff, reviewing prior count discrepancies, standardizing counting practice, and reviewing and revising the counting system for reducing RSI. This initiative resulted in a reduction in RSI by 50% between 2009 and 2010.

Report Highlights

Radiopaque or convention X-ray detectable laparotomy devices held over 54.0% share in 2016 owing to high demand across the world. In this method, materials such as a radiopaque thread or tail are used, which can be detected in radiographs. It is an expensive method but is recommended by several medical associations worldwide as it offers better detectability features as compared to traditional systems.

The RFID segment is estimated to post a remarkable CAGR during the forecast period. RFID is a technology developed for tracking and counting of these devices. It has low radio frequency beacons sewn into these devices. It employs low energy, making the system economically viable. A sponge tagged with RFID beeps when it is detected by an RF signal.

Traditional systems for laparotomy sponge detection include manual counting and the use of partitioned racks for keeping a track of the number of these devices in operating rooms. Despite technological advancements in sponge detection and tracking, manual counting is an important method used for counting these devices. The segment is poised to register steady growth during the same period.

Another method that uses a similar technology is the barcode method. A two-dimensional bar-coding system tracks laparotomy sponges and reduces false counts. This process involves the labeling of these devices with a unique code and their arrangement in a pack with a master tag that contains codes for all the products in the pack. Although there is no perfect system for tracking and detecting RSIs, the bar code system can be used to validate the manual sponge count.

Hospitals represented the leading revenue share in the laparotomy sponges market in 2016. Laparotomy surgeries (open surgeries) are mostly performed as inpatient surgeries. They require longer hospital stays owing to their higher complexity as compared to outpatient surgeries. In addition, reimbursement framework in the U.S. is more favorable for inpatient surgeries as compared to outpatient ones. In developing regions, there are a limited number of surgery centers, and most surgeries are performed in hospitals. All these factors are contributing to the growth of the segment. It is projected to exhibit the highest CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period.

Surgery centers are an emerging concept in developing regions. Surgeries conducted in these centers are mostly considered outpatient and most of them are less complicated as compared to inpatient surgeries in hospitals. Hospitals are generally preferred for open abdominal surgeries, whereas surgery centers are preferred for laparoscopic surgeries. Laparoscopic surgeries are increasing globally and thus, demand for laparotomy sponges in these centers is likely to increase over the forecast period. The segment is anticipated to register a noteworthy CAGR during the same period.

North America was the leading revenue contributor in the market in 2016, accounting for more than 35% of the market. Increasing the geriatric population, rising incidence of abdominal disorders, and the growing number of abdominal surgeries are supplementing the growth of the market. Domicile of a large number of key players in the operating room supplies market and government initiatives undertaken for reducing the incidence of RSI are also escalating the growth of the regional market.

The U.S. is at the forefront of growth in the North America market. Incidence of RSI is considerably high in the country and several initiatives are being undertaken to reduce or manage the same. No Things Left Behind is a nationwide project initiated in 2004 for creating awareness about RSI. According to data gathered from this initiative, approximately 2,000 to 4,000 cases of RSI are reported every year in the U.S. This is likely to encourage the introduction of innovative laparoscopic sponges and thereby drive the market.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. According to the annual ranking of World Cancer Research, Korea, Japan, and China are among the top countries with the highest rates of stomach cancer. The rate of cesarean section deliveries is also high in Asian countries. This regional market has a high potential for growth owing to a wide base of geriatric population, increasing prevalence of abdominal disorders, and rising awareness about laparotomy. Growing investments in R&D by key players to develop accurate systems for tracking and detecting laparotomy sponges in an attempt to reduce RSI are also expected to play a pivotal role in the development of the regional market.
