UAE Wound Care Management Market Analysis
The UAE wound care management market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period.
The healthcare system has witnessed enormous challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. All outpatient treatments were postponed or restricted during the COVID-19 pandemic to reduce the risk of viral transmission, as most chronic therapies were regarded as non-urgent. According to the UAE Healthcare Perspectives report published in September 2020, around 28 million elective surgery operations were canceled or postponed worldwide. The Dubai Health Authority, in its circular published in June 2021, instructed the hospitals in the UAE to cease all elective therapeutic surgeries that require deep sedation or general anesthesia, except for medical urgency and necessity as indicated by the treating physician. The large number of surgeries piled up in the medical sector is likely to add to the growth of surgical wound care management over the forecast period.
The International Inter-Professional Wound Care Group conducted the tenth wound care conference, World Union of Wound Healing Societies (WUWHS) 2022 HYBRID CONGRESS in Abu Dhabi in March 2022. The conference aims to promote greater collaboration and cooperation among all the Scientific Wound Care Societies worldwide. Such conferences focusing on the necessity of wound care management in the nation are expected to boost the market's growth over the forecast period.
The propelling factors for the growth of the UAE wound care management market includes the growing demand for faster recovery of wounds, rising incidence of chronic wound, and an increase in the number of surgeries.
The rising incidences of chronic wounds impose a significant burden on an individual, the healthcare system, and society as a whole. In the Middle East, the prevalence of diabetes is among the highest in the world, which is estimated to be around 12-20% of the overall population in the region.
The incidences of chronic wounds, especially foot ulcers, are common among the diabetic population. According to the February 2022 update by the International Diabetes Federation, around 12.3%, accounting for 990,900 people of the total population in the United Arab Emirates, were affected by diabetes. Therefore, the number of diabetic patients is expected to increase with the rising geriatric population, which will drive the wound care management market in the forecast period.
In addition, an increase in surgical procedures and the increasing aging population are also fuelling the growth of the wound care management market. Furthermore, owing to the rapid evolution of the market in the use of wound closure devices, medical device companies can launch new innovative equipment, which will be rewarded with huge benefits.
However, the high cost of procedures and reluctance toward accepting new technologies are some of the factors that can negatively impact market growth in coming years.
UAE Wound Care Management Market Trends
This section covers the major market trends shaping the UAE Wound Care Management Market according to our research experts:
Foam Dressing is is Expected to Have a High Growth Rate in the UAE Wound Care Management Market
Foam dressing plays a significant role in the clinical management of chronic wounds and moist wound healing. They are found to be produced with variable thickness and may be adhesive or non-adhesive. The foam dressing market is also growing due to chronic wound management, which is a significant medical burden associated with considerable healthcare expenditures.
The growing burden of diabetes in the UAE is causing a rise in diabetic foot ulcers, augmenting the demand for foam dressing in the country. For instance, as per the data from International Diabetes Federation (IDF) published in 2021, the diabetic population in UAE was around one million in the year 2021, a significant rise since the past decade. Additionally, the number of diabetic people is expected to reach up to 1.34 million by 2045, which will boost the demand for foam dressing among people with diabetic foot ulcers in the coming years.
UAE has become one of the world's crucial markets for wound care management. Various important seminars and meetings are being held where key opinion leaders from the wound care industry gather to discuss essential innovations. For instance, in March 2022, Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), the UAE’s largest healthcare network, successfully concluded the 6th World Union of Wound Healing Societies (WUWHS) congress. The event included more than 100 sessions featuring experts from over 50 countries. By organizing such events in the country, UAE is getting significant attention from global companies, propelling market growth.

Suture and Staple Segment is Expected to Witness Strong Growth in Coming Years
Surgical sutures and staplers are the most effective wound care management tools that contribute significantly to surgical procedures. With the presence of key companies in the UAE and rising surgical procedures, the segment is expected to witness robust growth.
The market for wound care management in UAE comprises both local as well as international companies. For instance, 3M, one of the leading companies in wound care management, has a strong presence in UAE and provides surgical sutures and staplers across the country. In November 2022, 3M opened its new regional headquarters in Dubai. The company also demonstrated its continued commitment to the UAE while supporting Dubai's vision to promote the Emirate as a global innovation and manufacturing hub inspired by the country's wise leadership. With such movements, the company has made a strong presence in UAE, which is a beneficial factor for the market studied.
Furthermore, increasing wounds in the country augment the demand for wound care management products such as sutures and staplers. For instance, data from the Ministry of Interior (MOI) published in May 2022 indicated that during the year 2021, around 2,620 road accident injuries occurred in UAE, a significant rise from the previous years. Hence, to manage the wounds caused by road accidents, there is a growing demand for wound care management products, boosting the segment growth.
