Advanced Wound Care Management Market Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2019 - 2027
|Advanced Wound Care Management Market|
Over the forecast period, the global advanced wound care market is expected to grow rapidly. Chronic wounds have become more common in the last decade as the world's senior population, diabetes prevalence, and obesity rates have all risen. Obesity and diabetes increased the occurrence of wounds and their complications, such as ulcers, surgical wounds, and infections that necessitate treatment. As a result, advanced wound care will be introduced into the market.
The advanced wound care market is segmented by product into dressings, devices & accessories, grafts & matrices, and topical agents. Because of increased spending on chronic and surgical wounds, an increase in the frequency of burn injuries, and technological advancements in dressings, the dressings segment accounted for the largest proportion of the advanced wound care market in 2020.
Despite being a therapeutic healing process, wound dressing has common problems associated with the materials used, which may result in wound healing inability in some cases. Inadequate moist environment, poor absorption of wound treatment agents, interrupted gas exchange between the wound and the environment, lack of protection against bacterial infection, and non-sterile allergic reaction all delay wound healing in various injuries. Alginate's unique properties have propelled it to the forefront as a potential biopolymer that can effectively accelerate wound healing. Alginates' biocompatibility and nontoxicity are driving their applications in biomedicine.
