Market Overview

The UAE wound care management market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.89% during 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 to the individual, the healthcare system, and the 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. While more than 80,000 adults are expected to undergo a lower extremity amputation, diabetics are 10 times more likely to undergo amputation at some point in their lifetime. Therefore, the number of diabetic patients is expected to increase with the rising geriatric population, which in turn will drive the market for wound care management in the forecast period.

In addition, an increase in the surgical procedures along with the increasing aging population is 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 are able to launch new innovative equipment which will be rewarded with huge benefits.
