Wound Care Market 2


Global Wound care Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Wound care refers to specific types of treatment for pressure sores, skin ulcers, and other wounds that break the skin. Wounds have a significant impact on patient health and on the resource costs of healthcare providers. Ensuring wounds are appropriately diagnosed and treated is essential in order to prevent unnecessary suffering for patients, and excess costs to the healthcare system brought about by avoidable events such as surgical infections and hospital-acquired pressure ulcers. Proper wound care prevents infection and other complications and also helps speed up the healing process with less scarring.

The wound care market is anticipated to grow on account of the growing geriatric population, increasing prevalence of diabetes, high rate of injuries and trauma cases, surging prevalence of chronic wounds, and rising cases of burns. Further, advanced wound care solutions are innovative products, which are introduced for the welfare of patients suffering from wound-related concerns such as ulcers and diabetes. The rise in diseases, which take a long time for healing requires advanced wound care solutions for better treatment. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), presently, more than 460 million people between 20 and 79 years of age are living with diabetes worldwide and by 2045 this number is expected to rise to 700 million. Diabetes is a chronic disease, which is known to give rise to complex conditions, which usually do not heal on their own and require surgery. For instance, diabetic foot ulcers usually turn out to be infectious and at times patients may end up with amputations. In such cases, advanced wound care dressings and devices are beneficial to ease the suffering of patients.
