Category : Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC259

Traditional and advanced wound care & closure products are meant to treat delicate and chronic injuries. Chronic injuries are difficult to heal and take substantial amount of time, and hence are expensive to treat. Advanced wound care products are becoming a standard solution for curing chronic wounds and are increasingly replacing traditional wound care products owing to their better efficiency and usefulness in managing wounds by enabling speedy healing. A wound is a disruption of normal structure and function of skin and its architecture. In order to ensure efficient and faster healing of wound, the wound bed should be vascularized well and should be clear of infection moisture and devitalized tissues. Wound dressings should be able to eradicate the dead space, prevent bacterial growth, control exudate, cost efficient, and ensure proper fluid balance. Also, it should be feasible to manage for a nursing staff and patient.
Attempts to reduce the duration of hospital stays in order to reduce healthcare expenditure and rising proclivity towards medical products that augment therapeutic outcomes are spurring the growth of advanced wound care & closure products. The risks involved with ineffective wound healing promote the demand for combination dressings, which is replacing traditional wound dressing techniques. Some of the key factors driving the growth of global wound care management market include increasing government support in terms of funding, rise in aging population as well as increasing incidences of chronic ailments such as obesity and diabetes. However, some key aspects such as high cost of treatment may hamper the growth of global wound care management market, especially in developing and cost sensitive economies.
