Market Dynamics

The global advanced wound care market is driven by changing trends. Recently, there has been an increase in the demand for combination dressing. The overall advanced wound care market has also witnessed developments due to availability of nanofiber- based wound dressings. Combination dressing comprises combining the properties of different types of wound dressings to offer better healing and performance than individual product. Combination dressings such as silver collagen, silver alginate and collagen hydrochloride combination dressing are commonly used for diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and infected wounds. They assist in wound healing and preventing the microbes to infect the wounded region. The greater therapeutic effectiveness of combination dressing is responsible for their increasing demand. Technological advancement in advance wound care products is further expected to drive the market growth. Companies engaged in manufacturing advanced wound care products are coming forth with innovative products to offer better treatment.

Traditional wound care products such as gauge, plaster, sponge and wadding, have limited effectiveness as compared to advanced wound care products. Advanced wound care products have higher absorption capacity as compared to traditional wound care products, which is important to prevent wound seepage. It also allows oxygen exchange simultaneously, blocking the entry of microbes into the wounds. These dressings retain moisture and help in formation of new tissue to cover the wound. Owing to these advantageous features over traditional wound care products, their popularity is increasing, thus leading to increased adoption of advanced wound care products. Other important factors driving the market growth include increasing geriatric population, growing awareness towards adoption of advanced wound care products, increasing cases of burns, surgeries, and accidents among others. Burns caused by chemicals, friction, radiation, electricity, friction and heat leads to severe loss of skin, tissue and blood vessels.

Advanced wound care products, such as artificial skin and substitutes, collagen dressing, hydrocolloid dressing and hydrogel dressing are used for treating such burn. According to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), approximately 15,775 fire related injuries were reported in 2014 in the U.S alone. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) publication in 2014, nearly 1 million people suffer from moderate to severe burns every year in India. Thus, the increasing incidences of burn cases are driving the growth of this market.   

Segment Overview

North America led the global advanced wound care market in terms of revenue generated through different wound care market segments, and alone accounted for around 40% share in 2015. Increasing geriatric population in the region coupled with rising number of burn cases and road accidents attributed to the highest share of North America in advanced wound care market. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for advanced wound care during the forecast period. Increasing healthcare spending in the region, increase in aging population, and increasing incidences of chronic wounds is majorly responsible for this growth. 

     Advanced Wound Care Market

Based on type, the advanced wound care market is segmented into advanced wound dressings, advanced wound therapy devices, and advanced wound care products. Advanced wound dressings segment accounted for more than 50% share in 2015 and is expected to emerge as the fastest growing market segment, registering a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period from 2016 to 2022. Based on applications, the global advanced wound care market is segmented into surgical and chronic wounds, ulcers, and burns. Surgical and chronic wounds segment accounted for the largest share in 2015 and was valued at over $5 billion in 2015. Surgical procedures are invasive in nature, due to which tissue is damaged and wound is formed. At times, this wound comes in contact with the infectious agents, leading to the formation of chronic wounds. Chronic wounds are also formed when care is not taken at incipient stages leading to deteriorated condition. Other reasons for the formation of chronic wound include road accidents, old age, diabetes and obesity. Various advanced wound care products, such as advanced wound dressing, wound therapy device and advance wound care products are used for the treatment of surgical and chronic wounds.
