The global wound care market is predicted to exceed US$ 30 Billion by 2027. Wound infection is a major safety concern for patients as well as for healthcare professionals globally, thus wound care is essential to reduce infections and promote well-being of patients. Over the years, wound care product categories have continued to expand with the continuous arrival of new and advanced products. The factors such as growing prevalence of chronic wounds and acute wounds, increasingly aging population as well as rising rates of diabetes and obesity, advancement in the field of wound care research, and rising number of road traffic accidents are driving the wound care market globally. However, the high cost of advanced wound care products restricts the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Wound Care Market

The COVID–19 outbreak has become a global stress test. The disease has infected around 105 Million people worldwide. Globally the death toll has reached 2,278,579 according to the latest statistics from the Worldometers (as of February 4, 2021). The number is still growing, and the duration of the pandemic is still difficult to predict. The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the wound care market, due to nationwide lockdowns, denied wound care services, cancelled or postponed elective surgeries, and restrictions imposed by governments of various countries to shutdown factories or function with minimal staffing, to contain the spread of virus and keep the staff safe. Wound care has been designated by many governments around the world as non-essential medical treatment, during the lockdown period, thus negatively impacting the market growth.
