According to a breakdown of wound costs provided by Smith & Nephew, 15-20% are material costs, 30-35% are nurse costs, and more than 50% are hospitalization costs. Considering that hospitalization is necessary until the wound has dried, the high hospitalization costs are hindering the advanced wound care management market, globally.
Additionally, lack of reimbursement policies all over the world is also responsible for hindering the growth of the market.
