Global Wound Care Management Device Market - Segmented by Type of Product, End User, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2019 - 2024)

Purchase Report

The global wound care management device market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.25% during the forecast period (2018-2023). With more than 37% share of the market, North America is expected to dominate the market in the forecast period. This is due to increasing incidences of chronic wounds, along with favorable reimbursement policies in the region.

Number of Chronic Wounds, Ulcers, and Diabetic Ulcers

According to NCBI, more than 9.3% of the US population, estimated to be around 29.1 million people, is affected by diabetes. In adults who are aged over 65 years, the percent of population suffering from diabetes is more than 25%. The incidence of chronic wounds, especially foot ulcers, increases among the diabetic population. While more than 80,000 adults are expected to undergo a lower extremity amputation, it is also estimated that patient with diabetes are 10 times more likely to undergo amputation at some point in their life. The number of diabetes patients are expected to increase with increasing geriatric population, which, in turn, will drive the market for wound care management over the forecast period. In addition, increase in surgical procedures across the world, along with increasing ageing population, is also fuelling the growth of the wound care management device market.

High Treatment Costs

Wound care management is associated with high costs, due to which it has low adoption rate. According to a breakdown of wound costs provided by Smith & Nephew, 15-20% is material cost, 30-35% is nursing cost, and more than 50% is hospitalization cost. Since hospitalization is necessary until the wound is dried, the high hospitalization cost is hindering the wound care management market globally. Additionally, lack of reimbursement policies all over the world is also responsible for hindering the growth of the market.

North America to Dominate the Market

The wound care management device market is segmented by product type, wound type, and geography. By geography, it is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America dominates the wound care management market, due to increasing incidence of chronic wounds, favorable reimbursement policies, and rise in the geriatric population. Europe is also expected to boost the growth of the wound care management market, due to increasing awareness about wound care management among the geriatric population. Factors like increasing accessibility to healthcare facilities in the region, rising medical tourism, and increasing prevalence of chronic diseases are also expected to contribute to the growth of the market in the region.
