Key Market Trends

Foam Dressing is Expected to Witness Healthy CAGR Over the Forecast Period

Foam dressing is an extremely absorbent dressing used for wound care. Foam dressings need less changing of dressings when compared to other types of dressings. Foam dressing works for heavily exuding wounds, like weeping ulcers, deep cavity wounds, wounds caused after debridement, etc.

Foam dressings are usually prescribed for their biggest advantage: providing a moist and warm environment, which is ideal for healing. These dressings are majorly used for full or partial-thickness wounds, that have moderate or more drainage. Furthermore, these dressings serve as a cushion to protect the affected area and also act as a barrier against bacteria during compression therapy. The ability of these dressings to be used as primary dressings or secondary dressings during accidents or other serious cases is expected to increase its adoption.
