DUBLIN, Dec. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lpx2w9/wound_dressings) has announced the addition of the "Wound Dressings Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.
Traditional wound care practices have been followed since the earliest of human civilizations. These practices were not complete, as these did not provide adequate condition for the growth of new skin cells. It was recently discovered by modern science that moisture and proper aeration is necessary for adequate growth of underlying epidermal or endoderm cells. This not only helped the wound heal faster, but also decreased discomfort to a large extent.
Currently, consumers of wound care products are not limited to trauma patients or household accidental cases, but include the diabetic geriatric populations with ulcerative complications. Skin ulcer and tissue necrosis are leading global concerns among the rural and diabetic population with inadequate access to medical care. This major driver led to innovations in wound care technology, which is presently provided by advanced wound management products across the world.
The wound dressings market has been categorized based on types of products and geography. The product segment has been further sub-segmented into traditional wound dressings and advanced wound dressings. The traditional wound dressings segment includes wound closure products (gauze tapes, sponges, surgical cotton swabs and others), basic wound care products, and anti-infective dressings. The advanced wound dressings segment includes emerging and advanced wound dressings such as films, foams dressings, hydrofiber, hydrocolloids, hydrogels, collagen and alginates. Foams is the leading sub-segment of the advanced wound dressings segment in terms of revenue.
This is because foams are versatile, in terms of applicability and healing, and are readily available in stores. Foams also witnessed the fastest growth due to faster healing and advances within the basic design, thereby offering wide range of wound coverage. Films, collagen, hydrogels and alginates would witness slow growth during the forecast period. Products such as hydrocolloids and hydrofiber would demonstrate impressive growth potential and are expected to continue growing in the near future with increasing prevalence of trauma wounds, burns, injuries, chronic medical conditions such as AIDS, cancer, diabetes and other skin ulcerative diseases.
