Upswing in Chronic Ailments, Trauma, and Burns to Drive the Advanced Wound Dressing Market

As per a report available on XploreMR, the global advanced wound dressing market will take a supple leap between 2020 and 2030.

Rising incidences of chronic diseases, sports injuries, and growing awareness regarding advantages of advanced wood care products are amongst the key factors driving the advanced wound dressing market.

The increasing occurrences of chronic diseases could be credited to the rate at which geriatric population is rising. As per the WHO, is population is expected to close to 2 Bn by 2050 (from 64 Mn in 2014). It is a known fact that geriatric population and chronic impairments, disabilities, and chronic diseases go hand-in-hand. Plus, the number of diabetic patients is expected to reach 552 Mn by 2030 (from 366 Mn in 2011) according to the International Diabetes Federation. Advanced wound dressing comes into picture with addressing the wounds of these patients (improper dressing may invite gangrene and complicate the matters further).

The factors mentioned above are likely to bring high tides to the advanced wound dressing market in the forecast period.

What’s more with the Advanced Wound Dressing Market?

In the current scenario, the cases of burns and road accidents are expected to add to revenue generation. The WHO states that more than 1 Mn people get registered every single year as severely or moderately burnt. This fact is also expected to give an impetus to the wound care market (advanced wound dressing market, in particular) in future.

The demand for materials like gelatin and CMC (carboxy methylcellulose) is also witnessing a sharp increase in the wake of advanced wound dressings. These materials are used for preparing hydrocolloid dressings. The basic advantage of the materials is that they help in retention of moisture. This, in turn, renders the dressings impermeable regarding any of the bacterial infections. The CDC says that more than 20% of the global population contracts diabetic ulcers or diabetic wounds.

Foam dressings made out of hydrophilic polyurethane (a highly absorbent material) are effective with respect to catering to trauma injuries and burns. As per the ABA (American Burn Association), more than 490K people all across the US receive medical treatment every year due to burns. Technological upgradations add to the growth of foam dressings’ sector. For example – SILCRYST nanocrystalline and Safetac (Molyncke) were upgraded in 2019, so as to provide better protection against proliferation of bacteria.

NPWT (Negative-Pressure Wound Therapy) is one of the applications of advanced wound dressing, which is basically used to treat diabetic foot ulcers due to rapid healing. Prolonged hospital stays do cause pressure ulcers. The tailbone’s, hips’, and ankles’ bony areas experience these ulcers. NPWT is helpful over here as well.

The factors mentioned above are likely to exhilarate the advanced wound dressing market going forward.

Covid-19 Impact

The outbreak of Covid-19 has left the entire world guessing, as to when normalcy would be restored. As such, the advanced wound dressing market has witnessed a spike as those suffering from chronic ailments have been advised to be more cautious because they are more prone to contracting Covid-19. On the other hand, sports injuries are almost negligible as lockdowns have prompted annulment of various sports events. For instance – Tokyo Olympics got postponed to the year 2021. However, due to disruption in supply chain, there is a shortage of raw materials. This is actually giving a tough time to the manufacturers as demand is escalating but supply is not able to cope up with the same demand. This scenario is expected to continue till the Covid-19 vaccine is in place.

Region-wise Analysis

North America holds the largest market share due to an increasing number of people with chronic illnesses. Europe comes in second due to large number of obese people therein. The Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest pace due to more than 70% of diabetic population being present over here.

Competitive Landscape

The key players in the advanced wound dressing market include Acelity (KCI Licensing, Inc.), Baxter International, Inc., Convatec Group PLC, Smith & nephew PLC, and Molnlycke Health Care AB.
