The report said: “There is increasing use of single-use negative pressure wound therapy systems, which reduce staff time and treatment costs compared to standard negative pressure wound therapy systems. In addition, they reduce the length of stay of patients in hospitals and are easy to use.”
According to the report, the Global Negative Pressure Wound Therapy market is mainly driven by an increased prevalence of diabetes. With the increase in the prevalence of diabetes, comorbidities related to it are also on the rise. As a result, wound care after surgery, injury, or disease, has gained importance. Proper wound care improves the wound healing process to improve the quality of life for patients and prevents infection and other complications associated with wounds.
Further, the report states that the lack of awareness about technological innovations is a major challenge in the market. People continue to opt for traditional wound treatments such as woven and non-woven sponges, conforming bandages, and non-adherent dressings, which is hindering market growth.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
