Pressure Ulcer Treatments Market by Treatments (Wound Care Dressings, Wound Care Devices, Active Therapies), by Wound Type (Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4), by End User (Hospital Inpatient Settings, Hospitals Outpatients Settings, Home Healthcare, Community Health Centres) – Global Outlook & Forecast 2022-2030
According to the deep-dive market assessment study conducted by Growth+ Reports, the global pressure ulcer treatment market was pegged at ~US$ 3.4 billion in 2021. The market is expected to witness a CAGR of ~6.84 % from 2022 to 2030.
Pressure ulcers also called pressure sores or bedsores are skin and underlying tissue injuries caused primarily by persistent pressure on the skin. Factors that are affecting the growth of the pressure ulcer treatments market are an increased number of patients with this disorder. According to a report by the National Library of Medicine published in 2021 each year, an estimate of 1 to 3 million people in the United States suffer from pressure injuries to the skin and soft tissues. An increase in the number of geriatric population, patients undergoing surgeries and advised complete rest, rising number of chronic diseases such as diabetes, blood pressure-related issues, etc. pose higher risk to develop pressure ulcers. According to the NCBI (National Center of Biotechnology Information), diabetic foot ulcers affect between 9.1 and 26.1 million people worldwide each year. Approximately 15% to 25% of diabetic patients develop a diabetic foot ulcer during their lifetime.
However, lack of proper management for the treatment, the need for skilled professionals, and the high cost of treatment are factors that can retrain the growth of the global pressure ulcer treatments market.
Mobility disorders due to obesity or debilitating diseases, depression, and anxiety can all be additional risk factors for the incidence of pressure ulcers. Maturing causes severe changes in the body, such as fatty layer thinning, and collagen and elastin shrinkage, which makes them more prone to ulcers. There are numerous serious infections that can progress to long-term diseases such as skin cancer. Care for the geriatric population suffering from ulceration is intensely required.
Furthermore, the high cost of therapy, a lack of trained personnel, complications that arise during therapy, and a lack of awareness and understanding can all limit the market growth. The global pressure ulcer treatment market has been divided into four regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America has the largest stake in the global pressure ulcer treatment market, owing to factors such as large pool of geriatric population, increased technological advancement, and expansion of healthcare sectors. For instance, NF Health Care introduced medical devices to reduce the risk of sores and ulcers by reducing pressure; these devices provide static support that disperses the pressure produced by the body's contact with the surface, hence reducing the risk of pressure ulcers. The company's proprietary technology is made of an innovative viscoelastic polymer gel encased in natural latex. Europe is the next leading market segment, owing mainly to the high prevalence of chronic disorders. Adoption of innovative technologies for the treatment of pressure ulcers, a large senior population with mobility issues, and improved pressure ulcer wound diagnostics also are some of the chief market drivers in Europe.
Asia Pacific region will also see significant growth in the global pressure ulcer treatment market due to a rapid increase in the number of patients suffering from ulcers, increased geriatric populations, improving healthcare infrastructure and expenditure, etc.
This report entails a thorough quantitative analysis of the trends from 2022 to 2030 in the global pressure ulcer treatment market.
