Financial and emotional burden of wound instances pertaining to both infectious and non-infectious types continue to pose palpable turmoil. Mindful handling of wounds has therefore kindled rapid strides in wound care tactics, allowing the global advanced wound care market to register flourishing returns.
Pathological conditions such as diabetes and cancer besides lifestyle conditions such as obesity significantly impose chronic wounds such as diabetic foot. Recent report by Wound Healing Society and European Tissue Repair Society opine that the US alone makes up for a total 6.5 million cases of chronic wounds annually, with enormous financial burden, and the statistics are likely to rise in the coming years. Factors as such are accounted to contribute optimally towards optimistic growth outlook in global advanced wound care market.
Emergence of pH Sensors, Trending in Flexible Wound Care
Further in advanced wound care wound monitoring is crucial. Real time data on wound monitoring is often facilitated by pH reading, thus furthering new developments in pH sensors. Recent studies suggest integration of these advanced pH sensors into wound dressing to accelerate healing process.
Post-Surgical and Emergency Wound Care Remain Prominent Boosters
Closely following suit is the astounding growth in post-surgery procedures which necessitates emergency wound care, facilitating rampant reliance on advanced wound care. Besides road accidents, mishaps and the like, unforeseen occurrences of natural calamities also reinforce the need for improved patient care, thus influencing massive reliance on advanced wound care aid.
Contrary to standard wound care materials, modern practices in wound care are fast embracing novelties such as biomaterial composition for improved outcome. Most decisive manifestations of poor wound care are soars and ulcers stemming from chronic wound history.
Despite growing need for advanced wound care practices, the market is still striving to offset prevalent limitations such as toxicity caused by conventional wound care practices. Such instances are anticipated to markedly dent onward growth in global advanced wound care market. In this light, leading market players are constantly striving to achieve breakthroughs, thus paving way for novel composition such as silver and silicone materials.
Silver Integration in Regular Foam Based Wound Dressings to Amplify Healing Process in Exuding Wounds
Revenue maximization in advanced wound care space is substantially attributed to growing preferences for foam based wound dressings. Ideal for treating wound infections, foam based wound dressings are gaining much attention owing to their superlative healing capabilities owing to their sturdy shield against microbes, further ensuring ample moisture retention to accelerate healing process. Commonly occurring foam wound dressings such as abrasions, ulcers, infections and the like call for foam based dressings. Additionally, significant advances in compression therapy is further likely to propel high end growth in global advanced wound care.
Advances in foam based dressings such as silicone foam dressing has emerged as an ideal solution for treating wound which are severely exuding. Therefore these foam based wound dressings are extensively used in trauma care and pain relief. Leading market participants often opt for PU film integrated with silicone adhesive that ensures complete adhesion to the wounds, thus accelerating quick recovery. Additionally, these silicone based foam wound dressings are micro adherent and non-toxic.
Further in global wound care space, market participant, Freudenberg Performance Materials, best known for its high end support for medical aids and hospital dress have recently presented diverse solutions based on silicone foam which was presented at European Wound Care Association Conference (EWMA. These novel additions have been improved with silicone and PU foams to accelerate wound healing process. Factors as such are anticipated to draw substantial attention and pose remunerative growth in global advanced wound care market.
Advances in wound care is also initiating notable advances in research endeavors, based on which addition of antimicrobial elements such as silver is strongly supported. This is a significant development further strengthening growth roadmap in global advanced wound care market.
High Concentration of Leading Market Veterans Reinstates North America’s Lead
