Global Superabsorbent Dressings Market: Introduction

Superabsorbent dressings are designed to absorb and retain exudate. Superabsorbent dressings are promoted for use on moderate to highly exudate wounds to absorb and retain fluid, thus reducing the risk of leakage and minimizing the risk of maceration. They have been developed to help clinicians manage and treat heavily exuding wounds, as they have a greater absorption capacity than traditional foam dressings. They are also designed to reduce potential leakage and the risk of maceration, which in turn, reduces dressing change frequency. 

Key Drivers of Global Superabsorbent Dressings Market

Physiological effect of superabsorbent dressing on wounds

Highly exuding wounds may require other options as not all materials are able to handle an excess amount of exudate whose control is critical in the management of chronic wounds. Therefore, wound dressings containing superabsorbent polymers (SAP) were devised. The resulting polyacrylate superabsorbers have a high density of ionic charges which accounts for the hydroactive properties and the protein binding capacity. Superabsorbent polymer (SAP)-containing wound dressings present a valuable and unique category of wound management products.

Rise in Pressure Ulcers

Non-healing wounds, such as venous, pressure, and diabetic ulcer, have become a rising challenge as an increasing number of patients suffer from wounds that fail to heal. According to The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP), the incidence ranges from 0.4 percent to 38 percent in hospitals, from 2.2 percent to 23.9 percent in skilled nursing facilities, and from 0 percent to 17 percent for home health agencies. According to European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP), 412,000 individuals will develop a new pressure ulcer annually in the U.K.

North America to Account for Major Share of Global Superabsorbent Dressings Market
