Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Devices Market is Expected to be Flourished by Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Wounds


Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) devices are medical devices used to treat acute and chronic wounds by applying sub-atmospheric pressure to the wound. They help remove excess fluid and infectious materials from the wound to stimulate healing. Common NPWT devices include portable and standalone units, which are mainly used in homecare settings, hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, and others. The therapy helps in closing surgical wounds and diabetic foot, pressure, and venous leg ulcers. It reduces healing time and hospital stay, lowering healthcare costs.

The global Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Devices Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 16537.84 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.6% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:

Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Wounds: Chronic wounds are amongst the major drivers expected to boost the negative pressure wound therapy devices market. They include diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and venous leg ulcers.
