Skin Tears Treatment Market Rising on the Back of Advanced Wound Management
Skin treatment is experiencing a tidal wave of innovation that would significantly transform conventional methods of acute wound prevention, treatment, and monitoring. Skin tears treatment continues to be one of the key growth drivers of the pharmaceutical industry, and currently represents a market worth of US$ 410 Mn. This is according to Future Market Insights’ Skin Tears Treatment Market Report that explores benefits of skin tear treatment products over conventional methods and reveals strategies adopted by market players to set their products apart from the competition.
Key Factors Shaping the Skin Tears Treatment Market
Increasing Focus on Educational Programs for Skin Tears Treatment
Healthcare facilities are focusing on the implementation of several educational programs to raise awareness among healthcare professionals for skin tear management. These programs also emphasize on the classification of skin tears and recommendation of products for each category for skin tears treatment to reduce pain and infection rate. This will shift interest from traditional wound management practice to advanced wound management practice and further towards identification of skin tears.
Such programs are expected to accelerate growth of the skin tears treatment market, globally. Companies such as 3M, ConvaTec, Medline, Hollister Incorporated, Acelity, and others are continuously working on such programs.
Shift Towards Advanced Skin Tears Treatment Protocols
Incidences of acute wounds such as skin tears continue to grow at a rapid pace in emerging countries such as India and China. These incidences have increased adoption of wound dressing particularly among the middle class population in emerging countries. This can be attributed to better healthcare and growing awareness regarding cost-effective advanced wound therapies including several dressings and growth factors for acute wounds.
Certain countries such as India, China, Japan, and Australia are increasingly focusing on healthcare in post-acute settings. Moreover, healthcare facilities in such regions are also shifting towards advance wound treatment instead of traditional wound treatment, which will in turn support the growth of the skin tears treatment market in distant future.
Dearth of Skilled Professionals and Lack of Awareness
Unskilled professionals are not aware of guidelines for skin tear treatment, which will hamper growth of the skin tears treatment market. Misdiagnosis and mismanagement of skin tears treatment is on the rise due to lack of awareness and basic knowledge about skin tears. Low awareness of the available treatment options for skin tear and possible modalities of treatment that are available in the market are factors that may result in low demand for these products. This is particularly true for most developing countries and underdeveloped nations.
People in some African countries are still unaware of the usage of advanced wound care products. Moreover, there is a general perception among patients suffering from skin tears that healing would be naturally regained. This unawareness of people and wrong perception regarding wound healing are responsible for the sluggish growth of the market in such regions.
