Burns have various causes such as scalding from hot, boiling liquids, chemical burns, electrical burns, fires (including flames from matches, candles, and lighters), excessive sun exposure, and others. On the basis of the level of penetration of burn into the skin’s surface, burns can be classified into four major categories: first degree burns, second degree burns, third degree burns, and fourth degree burns.

First degree burn affects the first layer of skin and causes very mild form of injury. First degree burns are generally caused due to sunburn, electricity shocks, and scalds. First degree burns can be treated with skin care products such as antibiotic ointment, pain medication such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), and application of lidocain (an anesthetic agent) to the burn wounds. Second degree burn is also considered as minor type of burn, as it affects the second layer of skin by causing blisters on skin, which become red and sore. Third degree burns damage both the outer and the inner layer of the skin. The skin appears white, pearly, or leathery after being affected with third degree burns. Third degree burn requires emergency medical treatment, as it cannot be treated with home care settings. In this case, the skin can be replaced either through transplantation or grafting procedures. Fourth degree burns are the most severe and life-threatening type of burns, as they damage muscles, tendons, and bones.

Wound is a type of injury which occurs when the skin is either cut, torn or punctured (open wound) or subjected to a blunt force trauma causing a contusion (closed wound). Wounds can be classified into surgical wounds, ulcers, traumatic wounds, and others (microbial infection, among others).

Global burn care and wound care market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,801.4 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period (2022-2030).

Burns are injuries caused due to overexposure to heat, fire or other radiation and chemical or electrical contact with any body part. Burns can be minor medical problems or life-threatening emergencies depending on the severity of the burn. Burn wounds are extremely painful, frequently highly traumatic, and can lead to permanent scarring, disfigurement or even death. The management of these wounds is based on the injured area. It can cause swelling, blistering, scarring, and in serious cases, may cause death. There are four types of burns: First-degree burns which damage only the outer layer of the skin, Second-degree burns which damage the outer layer and the layer underneath, and Third-degree burns which damage or destroy the deepest layer of skin and tissues underneath. Fourth-degree burns are deep into the skin and are life threatening. Wound care involves treatment using advanced wound management products (foam dressings, pressure relief devices, etc.), surgical wound care products (sutures, staples, etc.) and traditional wound care products (medical tapes, cleansing agents, etc.).
