The global laparotomy sponges market was worth US$ 0.75 Billion in 2018. Laparotomy sponges, or absorbent pads, are used in the healthcare sector for absorbing excess fluid or blood and evacuating subdural hematoma around an incision or a surgical area. They are made using cotton, rayon and nylon polyester that meets the medical quality and hygiene standards and allows the maximum absorption of fluids. The application of these sponges further extends to cleaning and retaining moisture at an incision site. They are also used by surgeons for gripping and manually removing tissue or an organ without causing any potential harm.
The growing prevalence of abdominal disorders among the geriatric population and an increase in the number of surgical procedures are the key factors driving the market growth. Furthermore, there has been a significant rise in the cases of diseases such as colon cancer, hernia, appendicitis, pancreatitis, peptic ulcers among the masses that have led to a growing need for laparotomy surgeries. Apart from this, an increasing number of cesarean operations conducted in hospitals and medical centers have also increased the utilization of laparotomy sponges. Additionally, various innovations in laparotomy sponges, such as the introduction of pads with heat bonded barium sulfate markers and enhanced X-ray visibility, represent another factor influencing the market growth. Moreover, as laparotomy sponges can be unintentionally retained in the body during operations, manufacturers have developed easily detectable and barcode tagged sponges that can reduce the cases of post-operation retentions. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 1.12 Billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of around 7% during 2019-2024.
