Key Insights

Traditional Wound Management Market: Experiencing Shifting Dynamics

Due to changes in aging demographics and growing incidence of chronic diseases, the prevalence of wounds and types of wounds are shifting. Although surgical wounds still top the total number of events, the events of chronic wounds are expanding rapidly due to the prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetic ulcers and other induced ulcers. The traditional wound management approach is still used in the care of chronic wounds, however, only traditional wound management products are not sufficient to solve the need for wound care due to the presence of a co-morbid population. In-spite of the availability of more convenient and advanced wound-healing products, majority of healthcare professionals opt for traditional wound management products due to their cost-effectiveness and the availability of clear reimbursement policies for traditional wound management products in countries such as the U.S.

The Joint Efforts of Supply Chain Executives to Increase Efficiency Expected to Boost the Traditional Wound Management Market

Various sections of the supply chain in traditional wound management products are collaboratively seeking higher reimbursements for hospital supplies to survive the extremely high cost pressure. This is being facilitated through cost sharing between value-chain stakeholders in the traditional wound management market. This is typically noted for the sharing of advertisement costs, logistics & transportation costs and inventory management costs. Efficient management leads to a lean supply chain and greater profitability. To ensure the security of supply, players in the downstream value chain prefer having tie-ups with raw material suppliers of traditional wound management products. This enables the latter-stage players to focus on better storage, packaging, transportation and ensuring the sterility of the traditional wound management products manufactured. Having tie-ups also helps reduce margin fluctuations and maintain the stability of the order-flow process. To cite an example, Chinese manufacturers of traditional wound management products have tie-ups with large medical suppliers in the U.S. and Europe to establish a win-win situation for both parties. This rules out uncertainty and helps maintain adequate inventory/stockpile & managing margins.

Sustainable Demand for First-aid and the Versatility of Products is expected to Increase the Adoption of Traditional Wound Management Products

There is steady demand for traditional wound management and first-aid products globally in home care settings as well as hospitals. Products such as gauze bandages and adhesive bandages enjoy sustainable demand for small cuts, bruises, etc. Product versatility is another factor that has helped gauze bandages maintain their popularity over the years, thereby witnessing sustainable demand. Other contributing factors include low cost, easy availability and comfort.

Expanding Aging Population, Coupled with Growing Incidence of Chronic Diseases, is Significantly Driving the Traditional Wound Management Market

The rising incidence of diabetic foot ulcers among the elderly in developing countries is fuelling steady demand for traditional wound management products. The International Diabetes Federation has estimated the prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers to be approximately 2% in developed countries in 2015, as compared to over 20% in the resource-poor countries of the Caribbean region. This is boosting the demand for low-cost traditional wound management products in in-patient care as well as homes. Diabetic foot ulcers could also lead to lower limb amputation and gangrene – the most frequent conditions seen in hospital wards in less-developed countries, thus generating demand for traditional wound management products.

Higher Procurement of Traditional Wound Management Products by Hospitals Expected to Fuel Demand

Increasing willingness of patients to recuperate in non-hospital settings is largely contributing to the larger procurement of traditional wound management products by hospitals. These products are generally supplied to patient parties at higher costs at the time of discharge. The formalisation of a contract structure, tendering and the finalization of adequate margins are gradually getting streamlined in developed as well as developing countries. These are factors contributing to growth in institutional supplies. This also tends to lend greater surety in order management across the value chain.

Higher Cost of Wound Care Hampering the Adoption of Traditional Wound Management Products

High economic costs associated with wound care via traditional wound management products is deterring the adoption of traditional would management products as compared to synthetic products. According to most manufacturers, most of this cost is hidden in nature. As per Smith & Nephew estimates, wound care accounted for ~4% of the total health system costs over 2010-15. This is divided into material costs (15-20%), nurse time & caregiver cost (30-35%) and hospitalisation costs (~50%). These costs lead to an escalation in overhead expenses for hospitals, which tends to boil down to consumers (here patients and patient parties) during in-patient hospital and hospice care.
