Market Overview

The Artificial Skin market studied is expected to grow with an anticipated CAGR of 5.6%, during the forecast period. The major drivers propelling the growth of the artificial skin market are the increasing prevalence of acute and chronic wounds and high demand for the skin grafts. The increasing advancements in the healthcare based technology such as tissue engineering technology and biotechnology has been the major driving force for the artificial skin market.

An increase in the awareness of various skin treatment procedures has lead to the rising demand for artificial skin. Artificial skin lacks immunogenic cells like dendritic cells, and hence auto rejection is not observed. The increase in the number of road accidents, burn and trauma related incidents has lead to a significant growth of the artificial skin market. According to WHO, Burns are the fourth most common type of trauma worldwide and nearly 96% of the fatal fire-related burns occur in middle and low-income countries.

Scope of the Report

Artificial Skin is a synthetic substitute for human skin that can induce regeneration of skin, thereby significantly impacting the treatment of severe burns and injuries. Skin is the largest organ in the human body and comprises of two layers namely, epidermis and dermis. Severe burns and wounds make the body vulnerable to infections and impairs the healing process. Artificial skin helps to overcome this obstacle and quickens the healing of wounds and burns. Artificial skin does not contain any immunogenic cells, hence not rejected by the body.
