Advanced wound care management products help enhance the healing process of acute and chronic wounds. These products include dressings, wound filler products, collagen products, antibiotic creams, and others that protect wounds from microbial infections and promote cellular regeneration. Dressings play a vital role as they form a protective barrier over wounds and absorb exudate from wounds. Foam, hydrocolloid, film, alginate, and hydrogel dressings are commonly used advanced wound care dressings. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has gained immense popularity in managing difficult to heal and chronic wounds.
The global advanced wound care management market is estimated to be valued at US$ 16.5 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 2.7% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
The growing prevalence of chronic disorders leading to chronic and hard to heal wounds such as diabetes and pressure ulcers is a key factor bolstering market growth. Furthermore, rising geriatric population who are more susceptible to wounds, increasing incidence of burn injuries, and growing adoption of negative pressure wound therapy are also fueling the advanced wound care management market expansion. NPWT helps increase blood flow to the wound, draws out exudate or wound fluid, reduces bacterial load and eases dressing changes and improves quality of life. It proves beneficial for acute and chronic wounds as compared to traditional dressings. Thus, high efficacy of NPWT in wound healing management is driving its increased adoption which is projected to propel the overall market during the forecast period.
The growing adoption of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) referred to in the heading is a major driver propelling the advanced wound care management market growth. NPWT is highly effective in enhancing wound healing as it helps remove exudate, reduces bacterial load, draws wound edges together, and increases blood flow. This results in faster wound closure and decreased need for dressing changes. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of chronic wounds due to diabetes and pressure ulcers is acting as another key driver. Diabetes can lead to hard to heal foot ulcers while prolonged immobilization results in pressure ulcers, both of which require effective wound management through advanced dressing products.
The global Advanced Wound Care Management market is bifurcated into product, application, end-user and region.
