Plastic wound retractor is a medical device used to control surgical site infections (SSI), which are common and high-cost source of postoperative morbidity and are mostly associated with gastrointestinal and biliary surgery. The device include an impervious plastic drape provisioned for attachment to the abdomen with adhesive patches. These are advanced devices as compared to the conventional surgical drapes and are designed to ease the reversal of the surgical opening during the procedure without using additional mechanical retractors and cloths. These devices have been recommended by different regulatory bodies in order to reduce the surgical site infections rates after open abdominal/gynaecological surgeries and laparoscopic surgeries as well. These new surgical devices are fabricated of a non-adhesive plastic sheath with a single or double rubber ring that robustly fix the plastic sheath to the edges of wound. The dual ring retractors are the most advanced devices which provide benefits such as prevention of accumulation of endogenous and exogenous bacteria on wound edge, diminish the risk of necrosis for long procedures, transparency allows easy see-through of anatomical parts and no lint further reduce infection risk.

The increasing number of cases of SSI associated with various surgical procedures, complications related to antimicrobial-resistant pathogens in hospital premises and the advanced technology of the devices are the key contributors to the market growth. Increasing number of cases of life style disorders and expanding geriatric population pool will add to the growth of the market. However, there are some limiting factors too, which include the lack of significant evidences citing real-time usefulness and affordability of these devices. Another key restraint which can impact the market negatively includes availability of limited space to access the surgical field after insertion of the device and lack of highly skilled surgeons who can address this complexity.
Global plastic wound retractor market has been segmented on the basis of type, application, end user and region.
Based on the type, the global plastic wound retractor market is segmented into:
Metal wound retractors, Plastic wound retractors, Single ring device, Double ring device
Based on the application, the plastic wound retractor market is segmented into:
Abdominal Procedures, Biliary Procedures, Gynecological/obstetric Procedures, Thyroid Surger, Wound Protection
Based on the end user, plastic wound retractor market is segmented into the following:
Hospitals, Gastrointestinal surgery clinics
Global wound protector market is projected to grow at a remarkable rate in low-income countries due to lack of healthcare infrastructure and growing incidences of SSIs. Globally, around 500,000 people are affected from such infections annually and estimated 27 million surgical procedures are performed. Around 2 million people in the US catch these infections every year costing them longer hospitalization and higher costs. North America will thus witness growth in the market. Europe has been observing a decrease in number of SSIs over 2011-2014, which may impact market growth negatively. 3M, Medtronic, Boston Scientific are few of the big global players, which are active in the market. Players such as Applied Medical are comparatively new but they have hit the market with some advanced solutions which has helped them to establish in the market. Players who provide novel technologies or add-on solutions may enter the market and can establish themselves even when the big players are already present.
Geographically, plastic wound retractor market is segmented into regions viz. North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific and Latin American market will grow at a rapid pace due to high prevalence of SSIs associated with gastro-intestinal surgeries. Moreover, governments in countries such as China, India, Mexico and Brazil are providing financial grants to healthcare institutions in order to improve the healthcare services being provided to the patients and research and development institutions to encourage researchers to come up with innovative and affordable technologies. European market will represent a decline in growth rate since SSI caseload has declined over recent years. North America will show positive growth due to high prevalence of gastro-intestinal surgeries.
