Japan Wound Care Management Devices Market Analysis

The Japan wound care management devices market size is expected to grow from USD 429.75 million in 2023 to USD 501.80 million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 3.15% during the forecast period.

COVID-19 had an impact on the growth of the market. This was mainly due to the disrupted wound care management during the pandemic. For instance, according to the article published by the Journal of General Internal Medicine in May 2021, there was a 61% reduction in diabetic foot care services in Japan during the pandemic. Thus, the outbreak of COVID-19 had a significant impact on the growth of the market during the pandemic period. However, telemedicine services in the region are helping patients to continue healthcare management, which includes wound care management. For instance, as per the report published by JMIR Form Res in September 2022, in Japan, pandemic areas had much greater access to telehealth using mobile apps for better healthcare management, which made the services continue and is expected to continue which help the market to grow over the study period.

The wound care market in Japan is expected to grow owing to factors like the rising geriatric population in Japan, as the elderly tend to have vulnerable skin and require expert wound care management. As per the population estimates compiled by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the number of seniors aged 65 years and older increased by 60,000 for a record total of 36.27 million in 2022. Furthermore, per the article published by the Journal of Nursing in June 2021, skin damage in the elderly contributes to pressure ulcer formation due to increased friction and shear forces. Thus, the increase in the geriatric population is also expected to contribute to the market's growth.

Moreover, the new guidelines for wound care management help increase the consensus among the healthcare team and are likely to increase the market's growth. For instance, as per the report published by Acute Medicine & Surgery in April 2022, the third version of guidelines for the inpatient treatment of burn injuries in Japan was released by the Japanese Society for Burn Injuries (JSBI). This work toward a consensus on burn care and develop new research to establish evidence for burn care and treatment, which drive the market's growth over the forecast period.

However, the high treatment costs of wound care management are the hindering factor for the growth of the studied market.

Japan Wound Care Management Devices Market Trends

Diabetic Foot Ulcer Under Chronic Wound Segment is Expected to Have a Significant Share in the Market

One of the most prevalent consequences for those with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus is diabetic foot ulcers. Poor foot care, peripheral vascular disease, underlying neuropathy, and poor glycemic control are the usual causes. For instance, as per the IDF Diabetes Atlas 2021, the number of patients aged 20-79 years with diabetes in Japan for 2021 was estimated at 11.0 million. Thus, with a high burden of diabetes, there is an increased risk for diabetic foot ulcers, which need proper wound care management and is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Furthermore, the high prevalence or incidence of diabetic foot ulcers is expected to be the major wound type that requires wound care management in the Japanese population. According to the article published by the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research in April 2021, the incidence of diabetic foot ulcers was 2.9 per 1000 person-years in Japan. Such risk of wound healing due to diabetes is expected to drive the demand for wound care management devices in Japan, thereby contributing to the growth of the studied segment during the forecast period.

Moreover, the new product approvals and launches for diabetic foot ulcer management are expected to drive the market due to the effective and safe use of products. For instance, in June 2021, MIMEDX Group, Inc. received regulatory approval from the JMHLW to market EPIFIX in Japan. EPIFIX was approved for hard-to-heal chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), to protect the wound bed to aid in the development of granulation tissue and deliver a human biocompatible extracellular matrix. Hence, new product approvals and better advantages of those products increase the usage of wound care management products and boost the market's growth over the study period.

Dressings Under Wound Care Segment is Expected to Register the Highest CAGR in the Market Over the Forecast Period

A wound dressing is a sterile pad or compresses applied to promote healing and protect the wound from further harm. A dressing is designed to be in direct contact with the wound, as distinguished from a bandage, which is most often used to hold a dressing in place. Moreover, the increasing number of surgeries in the region due to old age and other factors increases the demand for dressings, which helps the market to grow.

For instance, the report by Asian Plastic Surgery in April 2022 stated that plastic surgery has a long history as a discreet but popular procedure with the fourth-highest estimated number of plastic surgeons in Japan. As per the same source mentioned above, in 2021, a study revealed that the most common motivators for increasing attitudes toward aesthetic procedures in Japanese patients were self-investment and self-confidence. Hence, with the increase in plastic surgeries, the demand for surgical dressings increases, which is expected to boost the market through this segment.
