Advanced Wound Care Market Size & Trends

The global advanced wound care market size was estimated at USD 10.77 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.75% from 2024 to 2030. The demand for advanced wound care products is increasing owing to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases across the globe. The increasing geriatric population is expected to propel market growth, as geriatric population has slow healing capabilities.

U.S. Advanced Wound Care market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

For instance, as per the United Nations Population Fund’s India Ageing Report 2023, The population over 60 will double from 10.5%, or 14.9 crores, as of July 1, 2022, to 20.8%, or 34.7 crores, by 2050, which is expected to propel market growth.

Advanced wound care products help to cure diabetic foot ulcers, which are prevalent in diabetic patients. For instance, according to ScienceDirect, diabetic foot ulcers may affect more than 25% of the diabetic population and may lead to the amputation of the foot in 20% of patients. Thus, an increase in the number of diabetic patients is expected to increase the use of advanced wound care products. These products help in moisture retention and allow rapid healing of wounds internally as well as externally. Moreover, these products help in absorption of necrotic tissues, which are effective in cases of surgical site infections. Thus, healthcare professionals prefer to use advanced wound care products, which is anticipated to propel global wound care market growth over the forecast period.

Even though advanced wound care is a crucial part of healthcare, it experienced low demand in the market owing to a surge in COVID-19 cases. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, healthcare facilities such as hospitals have been exhausted with a large number of COVID-19 patients; therefore, many countries have postponed elective surgeries and other healthcare procedures for an indefinite period. Moreover, the outbreak of COVID-19 has created large-scale opportunities for local manufacturers. Due to the restrictions on movement at international borders, the supply chain of major players has been disrupted. This created an opportunity for local players to enter the market for advanced wound care and meet the unmet demands of the end-users.

Countries have opened their international borders, with the development of vaccines, as a result, the supply chain is expected to normalize during the post-pandemic period. Due to an increase in the number of diabetic foot ulcers and earlier postponement of elective surgeries, the market for advanced wound care is expected to grow at a moderate pace during the post-pandemic period. Furthermore, many companies are opting for mergers and acquisitions, new product launches, and increasing their distribution network. For instance, in April 2023, Convatec Group PLC acquired 30 Technology Limited’s anti-infective nitric oxide technology platform, which includes new product assets and R&D. In addition to enhanced wound care, Convatec plans to explore the technical platform for use in other businesses. Thus, the market for advanced wound care is expected to propel during the post-pandemic period.

The market is also characterized by a high level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity by the leading players. This strategy enables companies to increase their capabilities, expand product portfolios, and improve competencies.

The market for advanced wound care is likewise coming under more regulatory inspection. This is because concerns regarding the effectiveness, safety, and quality of medical devices for patients exist. Stringent regulations raise the cost of existing items and create hurdles to entry for new ones. As an instance, before approving a new product for use, the FDA needs rigorous clinical trials that might cost millions of dollars and take years to complete. Smaller businesses may find it challenging to enter the market as a result. The market for advanced wound care may be significantly impacted by these new regulations.

Advanced wound care solutions have a number of alternatives, such as traditional wound dressings, home remedies, and other medical treatments. While traditional wound dressings and home remedies may provide temporary relief, they may not be sufficient for proper wound healing in some cases.

End-user concentration is a significant factor in the market. Since there are a number of end-user industries that are driving demand for advanced wound care. Advanced wound care is used by healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses, and wound care specialists who are responsible for treating patients with chronic or complex wounds. However, some advanced wound care products can also be used by patients at home with proper training and guidance from their healthcare provider. The concentration of demand in a small number of end-user industries creates opportunities for companies that focus on developing advanced wound care for these industries.

Product Insights

Based on product, the moist wound care segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 71.13% in 2023.
