Historical and Future Outlook of the Global Wound Debridement Products Market

With the advancement in manufacturing, ample numbers of new launches have taken place in the wound debridement products industry. Additionally, stakeholders have kept their focus on fast-paced growth of the leading countries such as the US, Western Europe, China, India, South Korea, and Japan.

As the number of end users is growing and the demand is getting diversified, demand for wound debridement products is set to grow at a steady pace in 2021 and beyond. The report suggests that the increase in demand for the wound debridement market is an outcome of the rising occurrences of chronic and acute disorders. 

Why Hospital Industry is Critical to Wound Debridement Products Demand?

Among all the demand channels for home debridement products, demand from the hospital industry remains the highest. According to KFF analysis of National Health Expenditure (NHE) data of the US, “Hospital spending represented close to a third (31%) of overall health spending in 2019, and physicians/clinics represent 20% of total spending.” Considering the increasing expenditure being incurred by hospitals and clinics, the wound debridement products market is projected to keep expanding and growing.  The survey further suggested, “In 1970, 6.9% of the gross domestic product (GDP) in the U.S. was spent toward total health spending (both through public and private funds). By 2019, the amount spent on healthcare has increased to 17.7% of the GDP.” The number of hospitals in the US rose from 6090 to 6500 by 2019. 

According to a report published by McKinsey & Co, China’s healthcare market was projected to grow at an unprecedented CAGR of around 12% surging to $1 trillion by 2020. The factors driving China’s healthcare industry are newly introduced policies by the government, reforms taking place in the country and improving economy. The wound debridement products market is projected to potentially expand in the country by 2030, owing to the blueprint “Healthy China 2030”, made in 2017, promising to make China healthy by 2030.

European countries have been figuring out ways to reduce hospital spending and Increasing efficiency and safety to reduce the use of hospital resources. The private hospitals in France have increased in number and the government has introduced a number of reforms in the past 2 decades to improve the efficiency and quality of services offered in the hospitals. The number of specialty hospitals is also likely to increase in Europe by 2030. Owing to these factors, the demand for wound debridement products will be pushed further. 

Rising Prevalence of Chronic Wounds Creating Opportunities

The rise in the chronic conditions such as pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and burn injuries is another factor driving demand for wound debridement products. In order to care properly for a wound, a wound assessment needs to be conducted thoroughly and the wound care should be provided accordingly. Proper care of the wound is facilitated initially by employing thorough patient and wound assessment.

According to WHO, “Every year the lives of approximately 1.35 million people are cut short as a result of a road traffic crash. Between 20 and 50 million more people suffer non-fatal injuries, with many incurring a disability as a result of their injury.” Accidents majorly lead to chronic wounds which eventually increase the demand for wound debridement products.

Care of wounds post-accident is very sensitive and can make a huge difference between life and death. Therefore, the manufacturers in the wound debridement products market across the countries are making innovations in the products and manufacturing the products that can offer good wound care and recovery. 

Rising Incidence of Burn Cases Creating Demand

Based on the usage, the wound debridement products are in demand when it comes to the burn wounds. According to WHO, “An estimated 180 000 deaths every year are caused by burns – the vast majority occur in low- and middle-income countries.” 

WHO is increasingly issuing guidelines to take proper care of burn wounds. A WHO plan for burn prevention and care states 7 guidelines to cure a burn wound. The way government organizations are promoting effective wound care, the manufacturers coming out with wound debridement products accordingly.

Recent developments state that under European Union Civil Protection Mechanism, “It is important to guarantee a certain standard of care in all burn centres that may be involved in the response to a mass burn casualty incident.”  In addition to adoption of standards, many manufacturers in the market are likely to take the lead in terms of new wound debridement products.

Key Trends in the Global Wound Debridement Products Market

The key trends expected to fuel demand for wound debridement products vary across regions. These factors involve the development of kits and devices to efficiently decrease the difficulty levels and increase the healing process of the chronic wounds. 

The companies are looking for ways for early detection of bacterial infection in the chronic wounds through use of innovative technology. Technology can help in enabling the early diagnosis. Another trend in the list is the development of technology that improves the monitoring of the wound with the help of devices and sensors. Different sensors and devices are used for the prevention and detection of ulcers. 

Lohmann & Rauscher GmbH & Co., has enhanced its position in the Swiss healthcare market by recently merging with FLAWA AG. The company also acquired Dutch compression stocking manufacturer Varitex N.V. The main focus of the company remains to deliver a range of cost effective and high quality products in order to enhance safety of the patient, reduction in errors and hospital acquired infections and also improves inventory management efficiency. 

Impact of Covid 19 on the Wound Debridement Products Market

With the outbreak of covid 19, the infections in the human race are rising globally. The demand for life saving devices and medical supplies also widens with this. As the pandemic infects people, the risk involved increases for the people who are facing chronicle weaknesses. The need of the hour is the development of advanced wound debridement products. The report published by Future Market Insights offers a detailed analysis of the opportunities and trends in the post covid world for the global wound debridement market.
