Advanced Wound Care Industry to Grow due to Rising Incidence of Diabetes

The number of burn cases across the globe is rising rapidly. For example, about 180,000 deaths occur due to burns every year, and majority of these cases occur in low- and middle-income countries, as per the World Health Organization. In addition to this, the annual number of burn incidence in India is about 6–7 million. A burn injury is caused by heat because of radioactivity, radiation, friction, electricity, or contact with chemicals. The damage caused by burn can cause severe damage to the skin and other affected tissues, which is why proper treatment is required for these cases.

Owing to this, the demand for advanced wound care products is growing rapidly. These products have a higher absorption capacity as compared to conventional wound care products, including sponge, wadding, gauze, and plaster, which is a crucial aspect for preventing wound seepage. Advanced wound care products also allow the exchange of oxygen, simultaneously blocking the entry of microbes into wounds, aid in the formation of new tissues, and retain moisture. It is due to these benefits that the global advanced wound care market is expected to progress at a significant pace in the years to come.

Geographically, North America has been the largest user of advanced wound care products in the past, owing to the rising cases of obesity and diabetes, increasing geriatric population, and surging cases of road accidents in the region. Other than this, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to emerge as the fastest-growing advanced wound care market in the coming years. This is particularly attributed to the surging number of burn case and diabetes in the region.
