Key Market Trends

Dressing Segment is Expected to Exhibit Fastest Growth Rate over the Forecast Period

  • Dressing segment market is expected to show a lucrative growth in the Wound Care Management Market. 
  • Foam has a significant role in the clinical management of chronic wounds and in moist wound healing. 
  • Over the past 30 years, polyurethane foam has become one of the most commonly used wound dressings for exudate management in moist wound healing. The foam consists of a porous structure that is able to absorb fluids into air-filled spaces by capillary action. 
  • The most commonly used foam is polyurethane. Silicone foam is less frequently used as a primary absorbent in wound dressing but often is applied as an adhesive wound-contact layer. 
  • Choosing a foam to match the wound is complex, and depends on the underlying basic characteristics of the patient’s wound. The ability of a given foam to maintain the optimal level of moisture in the wound bed should be evaluated continuously, in order to avoid complications from a mismatch of absorptive capacity to exudate production. 
  • As evident from the above-mentioned application of foam dressing, its importance is indispensable. However, it has its disadvantages. Overall, the segment for foam dressing in North America advanced wound care management market is likely to grow during the forecast period, recording a high growth rate, however, not as high as other product categories, like negative pressure therapy systems.
