The global wound care market is expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period between 2021 and 2031.
Wound care products are used for timely healing of wounds and efficient infection control. Some of the common wound care products include antimicrobial dressings, collagen dressings, film dressings, foam dressings, and skin-care products.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, several healthcare facilities were forced to assign key resources such as nurses the task to look after patients who had tested positive for the virus. As a result, the patients came to these facilities, having suffered wounds did not receive optimum treatment at all times, due to the lack of key resources.
This also impacted the demand for wound care products, since their requirement at hospitals had reduced and negatively impacting the wound care market.
But with vaccine availability and a decline in cases leading to easing of restrictions, it is expected that nurses would return to taking care of wounded patients soon and that could have a positive impact on wound care product demand and lead to improved growth in the wound care market.
Rising investments for research and development activities and the launch of new, technologically advanced products to cure different types of wounds are expected to be the key growth drivers for the overall wound care market.
In addition to this, a higher prevalence of chronic and surgical wounds is expected to have a positive effect on the wound care product demand and, in turn, help in the growth of the wound care market.
A rise in burns in different body parts is also expected to drive the growth in the wound care market.
The global wound care market is consolidated, with the presence of well-established and smaller players. Prominent players could collaborate with smaller players to expand their market presence and improve their revenue share.
Some of the key players in the wound care market include 3M, Cardinal Health, BSN Medical, Johnson and Johnson, Smith & Nephew, and Medtronic.
The global wound care market is divided into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.
North America is anticipated to be the leader in the wound care market in the future. Factors such as the presence of leading market players in countries such as the U.S and Canada, higher per capita health expenditure, and a large population suffering from chronic diseases could be the key growth drivers for the wound care market.
Europe is expected to stand second behind North America, owing to excellent healthcare infrastructure facilities in countries such as the U.K and Germany and the adoption of technological innovations in this region.
Asia Pacific is anticipated to stand third in the wound care market, owing to the presence of diabetes-related comorbidities such as ulcers in countries such as India and China, fueling the demand for wound care products.
Players in Asia Pacific could also look to expand their operating networks in countries such as India, which could fuel the growth of the wound care market in the region.
Other regions such as Middle East and Africa and Latin America are expected to witness moderate growth in the wound care market, in the coming years owing to the developing healthcare infrastructure facilities in both regions and a lack of supportive reimbursement policies to treat chronic wounds.
