Bioactive Wound Care Market: Segmentation

This research report includes detailed segmentation by products, wound type, end-users, and geography.
The antimicrobial dressings segment is growing due to the high prevalence of several chronic infections. The high demand for these dressings is leading to the introduction of a broad range of dressing offerings, which, in turn, are boosting the segment. Moreover, key vendors are focusing on several clinical trials to increase the efficacy of these dressings, thereby increasing market opportunities. Wound biologics is the second largest segment of the market. The segment is growing primarily due to the rising incidence of DFUs, venous ulcers, burn injuries, trauma, surgical site infections, and other accidental injuries globally.
The rise in surgical procedures, especially in the geriatric population, which also suffer from several acute and chronic diseases worldwide, is projected to influence the acute bioactive wound care segment. The phenomenal growth in the surgical site infections is another key factor for the growth of the segment. Furthermore, the number of burn cases is also increasing globally over the years. Therefore, the growing incidence of acute wounds and associated infections is fueling the growth of the segment.
In 2018, the hospital & specialty wound care clinic segment was the leading end-user segment. The market is growing mainly due to the increasing prevalence of acute infections, the growing number of surgical procedures, the increasing awareness of advanced products, and increasing number treatments being conducted in hospitals.
The long-term care facility segment is growing at a steady pace. The rise in incidences of chronic infections is growing due to the increasing patient population with lifestyle diseases such as diabetes. The growing elderly population is also contributing to the growth of the segment. Since the elderly population is prone to develop chronic diseases, these facilities offer advanced products, including bioactive wound care.
