The wound care market is expected to experience change with innovative wound dressing techniques. While the dressing technique continues to remain the same, it is expected to change during the forecast period following increasing awareness of clinical benefits and faster healing due to advanced wound care dressings. According to the WHO, burn injuries result in approximately 180,000 deaths every year. Mainly, these deaths occur in developing or underdeveloped nations. Thus, the introduction of advanced wound dressing techniques in such countries will positively impact the wound care market. Moreover, as per the report published by the WHO, the worldwide base population pertaining to the age group of 60 and above is expected to rise by 2 billion in 2050. People of this age group are likely to receive chronic wounds such as pressure ulcers and venous stasis ulcers. Hence, this set of the population is vulnerable to wounds and injuries, which, in turn, will drive the market.

Advanced wound care methods include the use of pharmaceutically active ingredients. For instance, keratin-based wound care products are used along with the dressing for wound re-epithelialization. Furthermore, the launch of novel therapies such as nanotechnology, electromagnetic therapy, and electrical stimulation are augmenting the wound care market. These advancements help relieve patients during any trauma.

On the basis of product type, the wound care market has been segmented into wound dressing type (foam, hydrocolloid, alginate, hydrogel, collagen, and others), Therapy device (Negative pressure wound therapy devices, Oxygen & hyperbaric oxygen devices, Electrical simulation devices, and Others), Active wound care products  (Artificial skin & substitutes, and Topical agents), Surgical wound care products (Sutures and staples, Tissue adhesives, sealants, and  glues, and Anti-infective dressings), Traditional wound care products (Medical tapes, Dressings, and Cleansing products). Based on wound type, the market has been divided into chronic wounds and acute wounds. The market has been studied for North America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and the Rest of the World.
