The wound measurement Market is expected to reach US$ 2.6 Bn during the forecast period at a 4 to 5 % CAGR.
Wound measurement devices are labels, flow sheets, skin markers, tracing materials, and other products that are specifically designed for wound measurement, assessment, and documentation. Tracings are used to measure the surface of a wound to provides a visual & clear. The utility of wound measurement devices are to measure the length, width, and depth of wound. In some cases, wound measurement devices are essential to facilitate adequate care to the particular wound area. It provides the information related to decision making on the use of particular wound dressings with regards to material required along with progression period of the wound healing process. In addition, it is required to examine the progress of wound healing, and regular tracking of wound size. Initially wound measurement devices were rulers and surgical scales. These are now named as simple devices; however, they were insufficient in delivering desired results. Despite the same, these devices are still in use in many countries across the world. Complex devices are nowadays are a more preferable choice as compared to simple devices, owing to more accurate results along with provision of 3D image of wound for future reference. Conversely, high cost associated with complex devices may hamper the growth of the wound measurement market globally.
Rising incidence of chronic wounds associated with diabetes and obesity to drive the global wound measurement devices market
The global prevalence of diabetes and obesity is consistently on the rise. As per the International Diabetes Federation, globally, approximately 463 million adults were suffering from diabetes in 2019. A common complication arising from diabetes is foot ulcers, which due to the underlying disease condition lead to compromised or delayed healing. Therefore, the burden of wound management in diabetic patient pool worldwide is a phenomenal burden. Wound healing in the elderly population is also a serious challenge to healthcare systems worldwide. As report in ‘Pathogenesis of wound healing disorders in elderly’ (2017), individuals aged 80 and above present a high incidence of venous ulcers, which is three times greater than pressure ulcers and five to seven times higher than patient group aged 65-70. In addition, according to an article published in US National Library, it is estimated that 1 to 2% of the population experienced a chronic wound during their life span in developed countries. Consistent growth in the geriatric and diabetic population pool is therefore a key factor driving the high demand for wound dressings and wound measurement devices in this age group.
Non-contact wound measuring devices are expected to dominate the market globally
Non-contact wound measuring devices are dominating the global wound measurement. Factors such as more accurate results, along with ease of use and handling form the key attributes for higher preference for non-contact wound measurement devices in the global market. However, high cost associated with these devices may challenge the desired growth of this segment.
North America is expected to have largest share in the global wound measurement devices market
Geographically, the global wound measurement devices market is classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is expected to hold the largest revenue share through the forecast period due to the presence of a large number of diabetic patients, greater awareness, and better reimbursement and prompt availability of technologically advanced solutions. Better penetration of digitization in wound measurement devices in North America market is also a key attribute to this region. Additionally, Asia Pacific with its significantly large population and patient pool, along with growing prevalence of lifestyle associated disorders such as diabetes and obesity shall witness rapid market growth during the forecast period.
