Category : Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC321

Silver wound dressings are potent anti-microbials and are widely used to assist management of wounds that are associated with the risk of infection. Silver wound dressings have a variety of clinical uses owing to the technological innovations and differences in the nature of silver content involved. Using silver in wound dressings offers anti-microbial activity and includes antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Silver wound dressings are easier to apply, need less frequent dressing changes, provide sustained availability of required silver and provides additional advantage of excessive exudates, facilitation of autolytic debridement along with maintenance of moist wound environment. Generally, silver wound dressings are used in the treatment of chronic and acute wound infections. Silver wound dressings are available in the market in different variants including films, pads, bandages along with combined wound dressings such as calcium alginate for efficient moister retention and wound healing properties. Silver wound dressings have capability of faster wound healing and efficient health recovery and thus are majorly used and preferred by healthcare practitioners and patients, globally. The active agent in the silver wound dressings are silver ions which are effective in killing microbes by blocking the respiratory enzyme system and remain non-toxic to human tissues. Silver wound dressings find major applications in the treatment of chronic injuries and burns. Silver in silver wound dressings differ from antibiotics since it has many sites of antimicrobial action on target cells and thus reduces the risk of bacterial resistance. Hence, antiseptics control the bioburden in wounds and also limit exposure to antibiotics, thus reducing the risk of further antibiotic resistance.

Currently, the use of silver wound dressings is prominent in inpatient and outpatient healthcare applications since they are widely used in the treatment of burns and chronic wounds. Moreover, increasing occurrences of sports injuries coupled with rising investments in medical expenditures incurred by governments of various economies are some other key factors fuelling the overall growth of global silver wound dressing market. Also, increasing susceptibility of aging population towards foot ulcers, diabetic ulcers and lesions is another key aspect fuelling the growth of overall market. Furthermore, growing health awareness, increasing disposable incomes in developing economies such as China, India, Indonesia, Argentina etc. coupled with growth in geriatric population along with evolution in technological advancements are some major factors anticipated to drive the global silver wound dressings market over the forecast period. However, increasing use of technologically advanced tissue engineered wound management dressings as well as lack of efficacy, research and safety concerns related to silver wound dressings coupled with high cost in development are some major elements hampering the growth of global silver wound dressing market.
