Disposable device assembly depends primarily on injection-molded plastic, assembled by bonding, gluing, ultrasonic welding, or radio-frequency welding. The high production volume of single-use devices calls for automated assembly in clean rooms to minimize human contact. The advantages include decreased risk of cross-contamination, fewer regulatory concerns, reduced validation requirements for cleaning systems, lower capital investment, higher flexibility in portability and scalability, and increased assurance of sterility. According to Dow Corning (manufacturer of disposable silicone tubing), one of the leading companies in the single-use disposable products market, the market is projected to grow at a rate of 17-20% in the next few years.

Medical adhesives Market Segment and Shares

The surgery segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2030)        

The surgery application segment is the largest market for the application of medical adhesives. There are various major issues created by the sutures like traumatic punctures to surrounding tissue from the needle, which is especially detrimental for vital organs such as the liver or lung, where stopping leaks of blood and air by suturing is difficult. The incorrect positioning or tightness might lead to the development of fibrous scar tissue caused by epidermal ingrowth along the suture track. In many situations, sutures are time-consuming for long or multiple lacerations, hence, the adhesives play a great role. The key benefit of applying an adhesive layer with stitches on a wound closure is that the adhesive overlays the entire wound as a whole. This coverage acts as a preventive measure for secondary bleeding, thus reducing the risk of infection during the healing process. Gluing the skin is a quick method that saves surgery time, along with being low-cost. This method has aesthetic benefits as it does not involve stitch removal.​
