Wound care biologics refer to drugs extracted or semi-synthesized from natural sources which are used for controlling and healing infections. Wound care biologics are one of the widely preferred treatments in case of burns, as they enable fast recovery with minimum or no complications. Wound care biologics are mainly used for the management of diabetic, venous, arterial, and pressure ulcers.
The Asia Pacific wound care biologics market is estimated to be valued at US$ 296.1 Mn in 2022 and expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

The rising incidence of chronic wounds and ulcers is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.
The rising incidence of chronic wounds and ulcers is expected to propel the Asia Pacific wound care biologics market growth over forecast period. For instance, according to data published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in March 2018, over 1,000,000 people were moderately or severely burnt every year in India
Asia Pacific Wound Care Biologics Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Supply chain and manufacturing activities in India and China have been disrupted due to lockdowns implemented by governments for the past two years. The coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak that started from Wuhan, China has spread across continents, affecting various industries globally. The supply of key materials has been severely disrupted due to forced quarantine and lack of labor and raw materials. As the link between regional warehouses is not smooth, the transportation of raw materials between regions cannot be carried out successfully. This shortage of raw materials and components has affected the supply chain of the Asia Pacific wound care biologics market. Due to a severe shortage of medical resources at the front line, only patients diagnosed with serious conditions can be hospitalized. Unfortunately, the pathogenic mechanism of the virus has not been identified completely, and therefore, there is no specific drug and treatment except for symptomatic and supportive treatments. Respiratory support devices such as life-support machines, atomizer, oxygen generators, and monitors are primary clinical treatment medical devices for the COVID-19. Thus, from diagnosis to cure, the need for instruments for measuring temperature, nucleic acid diagnostic kits, antiviral medical products, and life-support machines have increased consistently. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the global economy, and in turn, the Asia Pacific wound care biologics market. Quarantines, traveling constraints, and social distancing measures are likely to lead to a steep decline in business and consumer spending.
Asia Pacific Wound Care Biologics Market: Restraint
The major factors that may hinder the Asia Pacific wound care biologics market growth include the increasing adoption of alternative wound care products. Wound care biologic products are relatively expensive, significantly contributing towards the cost of total wound management procedure, thereby deterring the patients from seeking advanced wound care. This is a major factor responsible for the increasing inclination of patients towards traditional wound care management techniques such as traditional and antimicrobial dressing.

Wound care biologics are bioengineered products used for non-healing wounds of the lower extremity. Wound care biologic dressings are increasingly used in post surgeries and severe trauma cases, as they provide a moist healing environment aiding heat, protein, and electrolyte loss for faster healing and prevent bacterial contamination. Biologic skin substitutes are healing therapies intended to facilitate innate repair mechanisms, control associated pain, and promote healing of the wound. Enzyme-based formulations including collagen play an essential role in wound healing such as hemostasis, inflammation, and remodeling, as collagen facilitates wound healing through the organization and accumulation of freshly formed fibers and granulation tissue, creating a healing environment. Growth factors are polypeptides that control the growth, differentiation, and metabolism of cells. These factors are hormone-like molecules that interact with specific cell surface receptors to control the process of tissue repair.
Rising medical tourism in Asia Pacific is encouraging an influx of foreign patients for affordable treatment. This had been facilitating hospitals, wound care clinics, and ambulatory surgical care centers to expand the range of wound care biologics products that are used post-surgical interventions for wound management. For instance, according to data published by Health Analytics Asia, a data-driven platform to bring journalists, doctors, and data scientists together to shape health reporting in Asia, in 2019, it had been reported that one million medical tourists visited Malaysia and 3.3 million medical tourists visited Thailand in 2017. India also saw a surge from 4,27,014 medical tourists in 2016 to 4,95,056 medical tourists in 2017.
