Advanced Wound Care Management Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Wound is defined as an injury to a tissue, wherein the skin is either cut or torn, thus affecting the dermis of the skin. Wounds are of two types, namely acute and chronic wounds. Acute wounds take approximately eight weeks, following normal stages of wound healing. Whereas, chronic wounds do not follow the normal stages of healing and take longer time to heal. The factors that give rise to chronic wounds include age, diabetes, cancer, obesity, poor nutrition, and infection.

The wound care market is segmented into traditional wound care and advanced wound care products. Health care professionals largely use traditional wound care products under dry environment to protect the wound from external factors. The main focus of these products is to treat the non-severe wounds from bleeding, inhibit infection, and dry the wound. Whereas, Advanced wound care products are used by clinicians to provide a therapeutic effect that supports wound healing. Advanced wound care is based on the theory of moist microenvironment that stimulates the natural healing process without blocking the wound and it includes film and foam dressings, hydrogels, alginates, and hydrocolloids. Besides maintaining a hydrated environment, which is more conducive for wound healing, advanced wound care products keep the temperature consistent, allow flow of oxygen, remove dead tissue, protect the site from exogenous infection, and ease the pain associated with dressing changes.
