One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in the aging population. The Global Wound Dressing market has also been witnessing the trend of increasing demand for combination dressings. However, the high cost of advanced dressing products could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Smith and Nephew plc, Molnlycke Health Care AB, ConvaTec Inc., and Kinetic Concepts Inc.
The other vendors mentioned in the report are Systagenix Wound Management, Coloplast A/S, 3M Healthcare Ltd., Paul Hartmann AG, B.

Bard Inc., Derma Sciences Inc., Kimberly-Clark Corp., Medline Industries Inc., and Organogenesis Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Healthcare team said: ''One of the major trends witnessed by the Global Wound Dressing market is the increasing demand for combination dressings for the treatment of various chronic wounds. Several products for wound dressing are available in the market. Combination dressing is the use of these products in different combinations for effective wound treatment. Generally, an antimicrobial agent and a biological material that acts as the carrier are used in a combination dressing. Some of the commonly used combination dressings are silver alginate dressings, silver collagen dressings, collagen hydrocolloid dressings, and collagen and foam dressings. These dressings can be used for all types of ulcers, as well as for surgical and traumatic wounds.''
According to the report, the growth of the Global Wound Dressing market is directly proportional to the increase in the aging population. The continuous worldwide increase in the aging population is contributing to the increasing prevalence of acute and chronic wounds such as pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, and venous ulcers.
