Pune, India, Janauary, 2019/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a half-cooked research report on the global negative pressure wound therapy market.
The global negative pressure wound therapy is predicted to register 6.7% CAGR during the forecast period (2018-2023) owing to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). NPWT, also known as negative-pressure wound therapy is referred to as a sealed wound-care system, majorly indicated for acute complicated wounds and large chronic persistent wounds. The system comprises a foam dressing and a controlled pump which drains out the wound. Negative pressure is applied around the wound which promotes healing. Such devices are used to manage chronic and acute wounds like venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, arterial ulcers, and first- and second-degree burns. The therapy heals wound by applying vacuum through a sealed wound dressing. The vacuum further draws out the debris and fluid from the wound and helps to increases blood supply to the affected area.
Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market
With rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes, increasing spending on surgical and chronic wounds, and growing causalities caused by accidents and trauma, the global negative pressure wound therapy is considered to propel during the forecast period. For instance, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 2.8 million people were hospitalized due to injuries in 2015. The augmenting rate of caesarean sections in elderly mothers is likely to accelerate the post-operative use of NPWT devices. Moreover, with the growing use of simplified single-use devices, the negative pressure wound therapy market is considered to propel during the forecast period. Additionally, the rise of hospitals with enhanced services for wound care is further anticipated to trigger the demand for NPWT across the globe.
On the flip side, the high cost associated with the therapy over conventional wound therapy coupled with a dearth of trained healthcare professionals are some of the major concerns anticipated to impede the market growth during the appraisal period. Also, absence of proof of clinical adequacy is predicted to restrict the market growth in the coming years.
