Report Analyzes Medical Applications of Nanofiber Adhesives

Research and Markets now offers a new report titled ‘Nano-Fiber based Adhesives in Medical Field - Competitor and Patent Landscape Report - Key players, innovators and industry analysis.’

According to the report, the market for nanotechnology applications in the global medical field reached $1.7 billion in the fiscal year 2010. The market is expected to reach a value of roughly $9.4 billion in the fiscal year 2018.

Products based on nanotechnology have demonstrated their superior properties and efficacy to the consumers. One such product is nanofiber-based adhesive used for implants fixation, wound closure, drug delivery and much more.

The discovery of the working nature of the gecko in 2001, elucidated by the weak Van der Waals forces, had inspired the development of nanofiber-based adhesives. Consequently, various nanostructure adhesion-based products are being introduced or are in the pipeline.

The report covers patents, university data and clinical trials associated with the nanofiber adhesion technology in the medical field. It includes comprehensive data about the classification of the nanofiber adhesion technology. Keywords are created for the patent search based on a large number of relevant patents. Important classes are recognized and are utilized for patent search.

The market report also has a detailed taxonomy relevant to the technology. It also includes major findings concerning top players, major cited patents, collaborative projects, intellectual property activity and much more. Companies mentioned in the report include 3M, Kaist, Procter & Gamble, Boston Scientific, Toray Industries and Kimberly Clark.
