In addition, technological advancements in wound care management, prevalence of obesity-related diseases, such as diabetes, and increasing aging population are also contributing towards the growth of this market. However, the high cost of active wound care treatments and products may restrain the market’s growth.

The global wound dressings market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and end user. Furthermore, the geographic analysis covers North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest of the World (RoW). RoW includes Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa.

By type, the global wound dressings market is divided into traditional wound dressings and advanced wound dressings. The advanced wound dressings segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the global market in 2016.

Advanced wound dressings are further segmented into foam dressings, hydrocolloid dressings, hydrofiber dressings, film dressings, alginate dressings, wound contact layer dressings, collagen dressings, hydrogel dressings, and superabsorbent dressings. Among these dressings, foam dressings segment holds the largest share owing to the increasing patient awareness regarding advanced wound products, increasing incidences of diabetes, and increase in aged population. Alginate dressings segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR.

Traditional wound care products take more time to heal wounds and are less effective as compared to advanced and active wound care products, Anti-infective dressings are widely used after surgeries to prevent hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). Increasing number of surgeries and regulatory policies of infection control authorities have increased the demand for anti-infective wound dressings. Dry dressings and tapes are other segments under traditional wound dressings.

Therefore, the increasing patient pool of diabetic will increase the number of patients with diabetic foot ulcers.

Wound Dressings Market

North America, comprising the U.S. and Canada, is estimated to account for the largest share of the global market in 2016. This large share can be attributed to the large population of patients with chronic wounds. Furthermore, the need for post-surgical wound dressings is on the rise, which drives the demand for wound dressings in this region.

High cost of technologically advanced products can lead to low adoption of such products. This trend is more prominent in cost-sensitive markets such as Asia and RoW. Patients and physicians in these regions opt for less expensive wound dressings. Though there are many bio-engineered products available in these markets, physicians and patients tend to opt for traditional and basic wound care products, due to their low costs. A dry dressing costs around USD 3.25 whereas a bioengineered skin product costs USD 650. Physicians as well as patients are reluctant to adopt technologically advanced products, owing to a huge difference in their cost. This is expected to restrain the growth of the market.

The wound dressing market is competitive with a large number of companies operational in the market.
