The global wound care market is expected to reach $18.3 billion by 2019 from $15.6 billion in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2014 to 2019. The factors driving the market growth include government support in the form of funding for development of wound care products, increasing diabetic and obese population, and rising aging population are providing required impetus for growth of the market. However, factors such as high costs of advanced wound care products may restrain the market growth.

North America dominates the wound care market with the U.S. accounting for the major market share. Asia is poised to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increasing awareness for wound healing products, rising aging population, rising diabetic wounds due to changing lifestyle factors, and growing population with pressure ulcers. Furthermore, many giant players are focusing on the market in Asia. For instance, in 2012, Smith & Nephew (U.K.) planned to launch 23 new wound healing products in the Asian and Chinese markets. Furthermore, in December 2012, ConvaTec (U.S.) started its operations in Bangalore, India, to bring novel healthcare technologies, products, and treatments to the Indian market, thereby establishing its footprint in the Asian market. Such developments are likely to spur the Asian wound care market to grow in the coming years.

The prominent players in the market are 3M Company (U.S.), Baxter International, Inc. (U.S.), Coloplast A/S (Denmark.), Convatec Healthcare B.S.A.R.L (U.S.), Covidien PLC (Ireland), Derma Sciences, Inc. (U.S.), Ethicon, Inc. (U.S.), Hollister, Inc. (U.S.), Ethicon, Inc. (U.S.), Kinetic Concept, Inc. (U.S.), Mölnlycke Health Care (Sweden), and Smith & Nephew (U.K.).

This report studies the wound care market by product and geography.

The global wound care market involves various products that help in healing and preventing infection. This market is driven by several factors which include the rising incidences of hospital-acquired infections and the increasing awareness about the latest technologies in the market. Government initiatives in the forms of grants and funds and technological advancements due to which new and innovative products are being launched are other major factors driving the growth of this market. The relatively untapped Asian market and bio-active wound healing products have opened an array of opportunities for the growth of the market. However, factors such as high costs of advanced wound healing products may restrain the growth of this market

The global market is expected to reach $18.3 billion by 2019 from $15.6 billion in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2014 to 2019. The market is segmented on the basis of product and geography.

On the basis of product, the market is segmented into traditional, basic, advanced, bio-active wound care, and therapy devices. The bio-active segment is slated to grow at the highest CAGR, owing to the increasing number of advanced products being launched in the market.

The traditional wound care market can be further subdivided into wound-closure products; tissue adhesives, sealants, and glues; and anti-infective dressings. The anti-infective dressings market is poised to witness a high growth due to the increasing rate of hospital=acquired infections. To prevent such infections, anti-infective dressings are widely used. The tissue adhesives, sealants, and glues segment can be further classified as fibrin-based sealants, collagen-based sealants, and synthetic adhesives/glues.

The basic wound healing segment is further segmented into tapes, dry dressings, and cleansing’ while the advanced wound care segment is divided into films, foam dressings, collagen, alginates, hydrocolloids, hydrogels, and super absorbers.
