Rise in Incidence of Injuries related to Accidents, Sports, and Adventure: Key Drivers

  • The incidence of accidents and injuries during sports, commute, and adventures has increased drastically in the last decade. This is anticipated to drive the market in the next few years.
  • Road accidents and violence is a major cause of trauma, which requires medical attention. In Asia, India ranks the first due to overpopulated and poor roads and lack of traffic security.
  • Traumatic injuries and burns is also a major cause of acute wounds, which require advanced therapies for treatment. These acute wounds, if not treated properly, increase the burden of chronic wounds and the overall health care burden.
  • The research conducted by the National Burn Repository (NBR) in collaboration with the American Burn Association (ABA) projects that approximately 486,000 burn injuries are treated every year in the US. It also estimates that this percentage is increasing roughly by 1% or 2% every year. This is likely to drive the debridement market in the near future.

Increase in Geriatric Population Boost Market Growth

  • With the rise in geriatric population, chronic diseases that affect skin integrity such as peripheral vascular diseases (arterial insufficiency and venous hypertension) and diabetes are becoming increasingly common. Frequent consequences include skin breakdown with formation of ulcers and chronic wounds.
  • This is likely to triple or quintuple the demand for medical services and trigger the rise of non-communicable diseases (heart, cancer, and diabetes), which account for about 87% of the health issues faced by the elderly people in low-, middle-, and high-income countries. Non-communicable diseases also need surgical interventions, which consequently drives the wound debridement market.
  • For example, The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that 3% of the people aged 65 years or above in the U.S. are expected to have a wound in next few years. An even greater rate of incidence is expected, owing to traumatic injuries and ulcers endemic in resource-poor countries in other regions. According to a report by the Wound Healing Society, approximately 15% of elderly population in the U.S. suffers from chronic wounds, which primarily include bedsores (pressure ulcers) and neuropathic wounds (diabetic foot ulcers).

High Costs of Technologically Advanced Devices and Products to Hamper Market

  • Cost of advanced wound dressings and products is higher than that of the traditional methods. Therefore, several patients are opting for the latter, despite the slow healing process associated with it. This presents a major challenge for the overall wound care industry.
  • High cost of technologically advanced, digital wound measurement devices is a major barrier for the market for would debridement. Health care professionals, especially in developing regions, prefer traditional devices such as simple dressings, rulers, or tapes for cleaning and measuring wounds; as these are available at a fraction of the cost of advanced products.
  • The market in Asia is price-sensitive and faces inhibitions in terms of investing in advanced wound debridement products, as a few of these products are sometimes affordable only to the elite population.

Wound debridement (Wound Cleaning) Market - Snapshot

Wound debridement is based on the premise that wound debridement will promote re-epithelialization. Wound debridement has been utilized for more than a decade. This activity reviews the indications, contraindications, and technique involved in performing wound debridement and highlights the role of the interprofessional team in the care of patients undergoing this procedure. The concept of preparing the wound bed to promote re-epithelialization of chronic wounds has been applied to wound management for more than a decade. The primary goal of wound debridement is to remove all the devitalized tissue from the wound bed to promote wound healing. Wound debridement is also used for removal of biofilm, bioburden along with senescent cells, and it is suggested to be performed at each encounter. Wound debridement is recognized as a major component of wound management to prepare the wound bed for re-epithelialization. Devitalized tissue, in general, and necrotic tissue, in particular, serve as the source of nutrients for bacteria.

Devitalized tissue also acts as a physical barrier for re-epithelialization, preventing applied topical compounds to make direct contact with the wound bed to provide their beneficial properties. Necrotic tissue also prevents angiogenesis, granulation tissue formation, epidermal resurfacing, and normal extracellular matrix (ECM) formation. Finally, the presence of necrotic tissue may prevent the clinician from making an accurate assessment of the extent and severity of the wound, even masking possible underlying infections. Contraindication of wound debridement, in general, may be applied to dry and intact eschars with no clinical evidence of underlying infection such as with an unstageable pressure ulcer with an intact eschar at the sacrum or buttock or heel. Several types of the wound debridement can achieve removal of devitalized tissue. These include surgical wound debridement, biological wound debridement, enzymatic wound debridement, and autolytic wound debridement. This is the most conservative type of wound debridement.

This type of wound debridement is a natural process by which endogenous phagocytic cells and proteolytic enzymes break down necrotic tissue. It is a highly selective process whereby only necrotic tissue will be affected in the wound debridement. Biological wound debridement, also known as larval therapy, uses sterile larvae of the Lucilia sericata species of the green bottle fly.
