Advanced Wound Management Market: Increasing Chronic Ulcer Cases and High Incidence of Traumatic Wounds to Drive Demand: Global Industry Analysis 2007-2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018-2028

Top 3 Factors Shaping the Advanced Wound Management Market

Need for the Treatment of Complex Wounds

Advanced wound management products are designed for the treatment of complex wounds. These products perform various functions, which include allowing oxygen flow, stabilising temperature around the wound, the removal of dead tissues, infection control, and reducing pain during the changing of dressings.

Silver is a very effective modality for the prevention or treatment of infection caused due to various viruses, bacteria, moulds, and fungi, as it has less adverse effects. Advancements in advanced wound management, such as growth factors and biologic wound products, help in the treatment of multiple complex wounds in an effective manner.

Surge in the Number of Surgeries and Cases of Trauma & Burns

Increasing number of surgeries and cases of chronic disorders across the globe are associated with the increasing use of advanced wound products. According to the data from epidemiological studies, the incidence of chronic ulcers in surgical patients in China is 1.5%-20.3%.

Road accidents and violence are among the major causes of trauma. India has a high number of road accident cases due to over population and lack of traffic security. Burns and traumatic injuries also contribute to acute wounds, which require advanced therapies.

According to the National Burn Repository (NBR) of the American Burn Association (ABA), around 486,000 burn injuries are treated every year in the U.S. The number burn cases is growing at the rate of 1-2% per annum, which is consequently expected to boost the advanced wound management market.

Growth in the NPWT Pipeline

NPWT is one of the most prominent segment of the advanced wound management market with a significantly high growth rate. Due to persistent unmet needs and growing global prevalence of chronic and acute disorders, interest in NPWT devices is expected to grow in the forthcoming years.

Nearly half of these studies are aimed towards improving chronic and acute disorders and reducing complications related to wounds. There are approximately 31 ongoing clinical programs for NPWT devices across the globe at different stages of development. Majority of these programs are aimed at effectively improving the quality of wound healing.

Phase unknown clinical trials accounted for 83.9% of the total active clinical programs. Most of these programs were competed by 2016 and 2017, which suggests that there is a significant growth opportunity for the NPWT devices market. Acelity (Kinetic Concepts, Inc.) is a leader in NPWT devices space with over 18 active NPWT programs in the pipeline.
