Biomaterial Wound Dressing Market Trends



  • The rising prevalence of chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, and pressure ulcers boosts the market growth.


The rising prevalence of chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, and pressure ulcers is greatly driving the growth of the biomaterial wound dressing market. According to a recent survey, the prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers is high in developed countries such as the United States, due to the rising number of people suffering from diabetes, and over 70% of them develop the symptoms associated with diabetic foot ulcers. As a result, the demand for better wound dressing materials such as hydrogels, foam, and alginates has increased considerably in the markets.


Furthermore, the rising government initiatives and consumer desire for quick and safe treatment of chronic wounds are further driving market expansion. For instance, over 537 million adults worldwide were living with diabetes in 2021, according to the IDF Diabetes Atlas' 10th edition from that organization. As a result, it is anticipated that the market under study will rise due to the rising number of persons with diabetes who are more prone to developing foot ulcers.


The level of medical equipment is also rising, according to a Polymers Journal article from April 2022, as a result of the rising demand for wound healing and wound care management. But for the purpose of dressing wounds, sutures continue to be the medical device of choice. As a result, there is a rising need for suture devices in North America since there is a rising need for surgeries connected to trauma and accident cases. In 2020, there were 40 visits to emergency departments (EDs) per 100 individuals. The rate of emergency department visits was highest for newborns under 1-year old (68 visits per 100 infants), next for individuals 75 and above (63 visits per 100 people).


Furthermore, in comparison to all other primary expected sources of payment, the CDC found that the rate of emergency department visits for patients with private insurance was lowest, while the rate for patients with Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program, or other state-based programs was highest. Furthermore, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were 35 million emergency department visits for injuries, 16.2 million ED visits that resulted in hospital admissions, and 2.4 million ED visits that resulted in CRIT admissions. The numbers are provided below.
