Rise in Number of Burn-related Injuries to Fuel Market

In the last decade, significant developments have taken place within the dermatome devices market in terms of technology. Apart from the influence of technology, the new generation of dermatome devices developed offer improved results with a high degree of precision and accuracy. The demand for cutting-edge dermatome devices is expected to witness a significant growth in the near future, owing to a range of factors. As per the estimates of the World Health Organization, on an average, around 265,000 fire-related deaths occur worldwide. In the U.S. alone, approximately 486,000 individuals receive treatment for a range of burn injuries. In India, a staggering 1 million people receive moderate or severe burn injuries every year.

Burn or fire-related injuries, thus, require adequate treatment such as skin grafting. The significant rise in the number of such injuries across the world is a leading factor that is expected to drive the growth of the dermatome devices market during the forecast period. One of the key applications of dermatome devices is the reconstruction of the damaged areas due to grade 3 burns. Apart from these applications, the growing prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers and a notable rise in the number of skin cancer incidences are other factors that are likely to drive the dermatome devices market during the forecast period. The dermatome devices market is expected to reach a value of ~US$ 208 Mn by 2027.

Preference for Air and Powered Dermatome Devices to Remain High

Due to the high number of reported burn-related cases worldwide, different types of dermatome devices have entered the fray such as drum dermatome, air dermatome, powered dermatome, and knife dermatome. Despite being one of the most fundamental techniques used during the reconstructive surgery, harvesting a uniform graft with the desired thickness continues to remain a major challenge. From the initial freehand technique to highly accurate state-of-the-art automated techniques, dermatome devices for the harvest of skin grafts have evolved at a rapid pace. The choice of the instrument primarily depends on the surgeons' past experience; while knives remain highly popular across Europe, surgeons across North America favor using dermatome devices.

The uptake of powered dermatome and air dermatome is expected to increase at a rapid pace during the stipulated timeframe of the study. Collectively, powered and air dermatomes are projected to account for over 90% share of the dermatome devices market in 2020. The first generation of dermatome devices, developed in 1930 were operated manually. Over time, owing to technological advancements and improvements in manufacturing capabilities, air and powered dermatome devices have garnered significant popularity, as they offer superior precision and can cut large amounts of skin at a rapid pace. Emergency departments across the world widely use battery-operated dermatomes, as availability of powered dermatome devices in emergency cases is an uncertainty. The powered dermatome type segment is expected to reach a value of ~US$ 56 Mn in 2020 and witness a healthy CAGR growth of ~5% during the forecast period.

Shortcomings of skin grafting knives while obtaining grafts of the desired thickness and quality are stated to be one of the primary reasons to affect the adoption of knife dermatome devices.

Companies to Focus on Development of Superior Dermatome Devices

The demand for patient care medical devices has witnessed unprecedented growth in the past few years, owing to significant developments in technology. Players operating in the current dermatome devices market are expected to largely focus on expanding their product portfolio, and develop advanced air and powered dermatome devices. Manufacturers are expected to develop new products leveraging the findings of various disciplines related to healthcare, including nanotechnology, cognitive sciences, biological sciences, and material science.

Dermatome Devices Market: Overview

  • The dermatome devices market was valued at ~US$ 138 Mn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a high CAGR from 2019 to 2027. Rise in the number of patients with chronic burn injuries, chronic ulcers, trauma, and cancer across the world is anticipated to fuel the growth of the dermatome devices market.
  • Dermatome is a surgical medical device primarily used to produce thin and uniform slices of skin from a donor for use in different plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures. Dermatomes are available in different operating modes, such as knife dermatomes are operated manually, while powered dermatomes are either electric or battery operated. The other types of dermatomes are air dermatomes and drum dermatomes.
  • Primary application of dermatome devices is to produce slices of skin from donor site. The skin slices are used for skin grafting procedures in various plastic and reconstructive surgeries such as skin cancer reconstructive surgery, trauma reconstructive surgery, chronic burn reconstructive surgeries, chronic, large & open wound treatment, and cosmetic surgical procedures. 

Dermatome Devices Market: Key drivers

  • The dermatome devices market is expected to be driven by high prevalence of chronic wounds and grade 3 burn injuries. According to a research by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the global prevalence of diabetic foot ulcer was 6.3%, higher in males (4.5%) as compared to females (3.5%). Chronic leg ulcers affect 0.6% to 3% people aged over 60, increasing to over 5% of those aged over 80. According to the Wound Healing Society, about 15% of older adults in the U.S. suffer from chronic wounds, including predominantly venous stasis ulcers, pressure ulcers (bedsores), and diabetic (neuropathic) foot ulcers.
