Advanced wound care products are designed to treat more complex wounds. This includes hydrogels, hydrocolloids, alginates, and film & foam dressings. Advanced wound care treatments revolve around the principle of moisture therapy, which provides moisture to the wound site to encourage natural cell repair while giving the wound room to breathe. Products utilized in moist wound care generally fit better around different wound shapes & sizes and are more resistant to environmental inhibitors & foreign particles.
The global advanced wound care market is mainly driven by the rising geriatric population and the increasing prevalence of chronic wounds globally. Increasing investments & collaborations for launching technologically advanced wound care products is also propelling the growth of the market. However, the high cost of treatment is likely to restrain the market growth to a certain extent.
The global advanced wound care market has been analyzed from four perspectives: Product Type, Application, End-User, and Region.
Advanced Wound Care Market by Product Type
Based on product type, the advanced wound care market has been segmented into wound dressing, wound therapy devices, and others (grafts & matrices, topical agents, etc.). The wound dressing segment is further categorized into foam dressings, alginate dressings, collagen dressings, hydrocolloid dressings, hydrogel dressings, film dressings, and other wound dressings (wound contact layers, hydrofiber dressings, superabsorbent dressings, etc.). Whereas, wound therapy devices are further categorized into negative pressure wound therapy systems, electrostimulation devices, pressure relief devices, hyperbaric oxygen equipment, and others (debridement devices, wound assessment & monitoring devices, etc.). The wound dressing segment dominated the market with the largest share owing to the lower cost of wound dressings and the rising prevalence of diabetes-associated ulcers, pressure ulcers, & venous leg ulcers.
Advanced Wound Care Market by Application
Based on application, the advanced wound care market has been segmented into diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, arterial & venous ulcers, surgical & traumatic wounds, and burns. Surgical & traumatic wounds dominated the market with the largest share. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising geriatric population coupled with increasing surgeries for different chronic diseases.
Advanced Wound Care Market by End User
Based on end users, the advanced wound care market has been segmented into hospitals, home care settings, and others (clinics, ambulatory care units, etc.). Hospitals dominated the market with the largest share owing to the rising number of trauma cases, road accident & burn cases coupled with patient's preference to visit hospitals for treatment of such cases and an increasing number of surgeries performed in hospitals.
Advanced Wound Care Market by Region
Based on region, the global advanced wound care market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America dominated the advanced wound care market, followed by the Asia Pacific. The large share of North America in the global market can largely be attributed to developed infrastructure, and the rising prevalence of chronic conditions such as obesity & diabetes resulting in chronic, surgical, & traumatic wounds. The presence of prominent players in the region and the high adoption of new wound care technologies & therapies are also expected to play a pivotal role in the growth of the market.
Some of the prominent players operating in the advanced wound care market includes:-
