The rising number of burn injuries due to fire accidents or fire mishaps is another key factor fueling the market growth. Burning wounds require attention, and wound care SOPs such as keeping the burn injury cool, taking care of blisters, applying cool lotions, and using pain reliever pills are some of the things that need to be done during the wound care of such cases.

Types of Wound Dressings

The Market of Wound Care

The market growth for wound care is being driven by major end-users such as hospitals and home healthcare. The increasing awareness of medical treatments has led to more people seeking professional care for wounds rather than relying on home remedies. As a result, healthcare institutes are becoming more important in the treatment of wounds, leading to an increase in hospitalizations and ultimately improving life expectancies.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the wound care market was negatively impacted due to the limited accessibility of basic wound care at hospitals and healthcare centers. Patients experienced difficulties as a result of consecutive lockdowns and a shortage of traditional wound care supplies. The market’s growth was slow due to the challenges in accessing basic care management centers during the pandemic.

However, post-pandemic, there is a significant demand for the wound care services, resulting in a high number of newly opened clinics. Additionally, wound care material prices are reasonable, and the materials are easily accessible to low-income groups. Recently the market has not witnessed any major supply chain disruption of wound care materials.


Key Challenges for the Wound Care Market

The market faces challenges as injured individuals often delay diagnosis or neglect proper treatment. Lower treatment rates can be a major issue in developing economies, where patients may self-medicate or overlook their wounds. In developing nations, delayed diagnosis occurs more frequently than in developed countries despite the high incidence of chronic wounds.


Way Forward

The market is primarily driven by factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic and acute wound injuries, increasing cases of trauma and burn injuries, and a surge in the prevalence of diabetes. Leading manufacturers of wound care products and devices, along with the global wound care industry, are seeing an increase in the number of hospitals and healthcare institutions. They are also making optimal use of technological innovations to develop advanced products in order to gain a significant market share in the near future.
