Dermatome Devices Market to Reach a Valuation of ~US$ 208 Mn by 2027: Transparency Market Research

Dermatome Devices Market: Introduction

According to the report, the global dermatome devices market was valued at ~US$ 138 Mn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Dermatome devices are medical devices used for slicing specific parts of skin during grafting and transplant procedures. These devices are primarily designed for cutting thin slices of skin to use them in making skin grafts. Dermatome devices are used extensively in the field of plastic & reconstructive surgery, chronic burn care treatments, and general surgery procedures. These are available in different operating modes, such as air powered (pneumatic) dermatome devices, battery operated dermatome devices, and electric dermatome devices. The choice of dermatome device depends on the expertise of the surgeon in skin grafting.

Growth of the dermatome devices market can be ascribed to the rise in chronic burn injuries across the world, technological advancements, and new product development. Significant increase in plastic, cosmetic, and reconstructive surgical procedures across the globe is also likely to fuel the dermatome devices market during the forecast period.

Increase in Skin Graft Procedures to Drive Global Market

The global dermatome devices market is primarily driven by significant rise in skin graft procedures, owing to the increase in incidence of burn injury cases, traumatic cases, chronic wounds, and dermatological disorders. For instance, around 6 million cases of chronic wound are reported and approximately one million skin grafts are performed in the U.S. each year. The skin grafting procedure is considered to be the gold standard for burn and traumatic injury treatment.

Significant rise in burn injury cases across the globe is one of the key drivers of the global dermatome devices market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 180,000 deaths are reported across the globe every year due to burn injuries. Around 486,000 people receive burn injury treatment in the U.S. every year. Thus, large proportion of patients with burn injuries across the globe require skin grafts. This is expected to fuel the dermatome devices market during the forecast period.

Distinguishing Features of Air Dermatome Devices to Increase Usage

In terms of type, the dermatome devices market has been classified into drum dermatome, air dermatome, knife dermatome, and powered dermatome. Air dermatome is anticipated to be the leading segment of the dermatome devices market during the forecast period. Air dermatome devices are commonly used in chronic burn injuries, trauma injuries, and chronic ulcer treatment. These devices are easy to maneuver, feature smaller diameter handle, and are ideal for retrieval of large skin graft.

The powered dermatome segment is estimated to expand at a rapid CAGR during the forecast period. The powered dermatome segment has been further bifurcated into electric dermatomes and battery operated dermatomes.  

Hospitals a Major End User of Dermatome Devices

In terms of end user, the dermatome devices market has been segregated into hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and specialty clinics. The hospitals segment held a significant share of the market in 2018. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Majority of chronic burn injuries treatments, cancer treatments, and large skin grafting procedures are performed at hospitals, as these entail surgical procedures and relatively long-term management of the medical condition. Thus, the hospitals segment accounted for a major share in 2018. The ambulatory surgical procedures segment is estimated to expand at a rapid CAGR from 2019 to 2027.

Dermatome Devices Market: Prominent Regions

The global dermatome devices market has been split into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the dermatome devices market in 2018, followed by Europe. This can be attributed to new product development, early adoption of technologically advanced products, and presence of key players in the region. The market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to a large number of patients with chronic burn injuries and cancer in India, China, Australia, and New Zealand; rise in per capita healthcare expenditure; and increase in access to healthcare. The market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is anticipated to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period.

Launch of Innovative Products and M&A by Key Players to Augment Global Market

The global dermatome devices market is highly consolidated, with a small number of players holding majority share. Development and commercialization of battery operated and electric dermatome devices is one of the key trends among leading players in the global dermatome devices market. Prominent players operating in the global dermatome devices market include Integra Life Sciences Holdings Corporation, Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc., B. Braun Melsungen AG, Humeca BV, De Soutter Medical, Aygun Co., Inc., Nouvag AG, Richard Wolf GmbH, and Surtex Instruments Limited.
