Report Overview

The global dermatome device market size was valued at USD 142.4 million in 2021 and is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% from 2022 to 2030. Increasing advancements in dermatome devices to provide improved results with a high degree of accuracy and precision are anticipated to secure a strong market position during the forecast period. Factors, such as a rise in the number of burn cases, an increasing number of cosmetic surgeries, and an increasing incidence of pressure ulcers and skin infections, are expected to drive the industry growth. The COVID-19 pandemic led to a significant fall in the sales of dermatome devices.

Factors, such as lockdowns, strict government guidelines to avoid the spread of the virus, and changes in medical priorities, had a negative impact on the industry. Moreover, the postponement of many elective surgeries also resulted in a drop in the overall revenue of the industry. However, the continued focus on trauma and serious burn patients helped in gathering a considerable amount of revenues during the pandemic as well. Thus, although the industry experienced a slight drop in revenue, it was not very badly hit. Moreover, the industry recovered quickly in the second half of the pandemic post the opening of economies due to a large number of pending elective surgeries.

Increased influence of social media is also expected to help the industry flourish over the forecast period. Mass trauma and catastrophes, such as fires and explosions, can cause a number of serious and complex injuries, including burns. These can include electrical & chemical burns and heat as well as thermal burns, which are instigated by contact with hot liquids, flames, hot surfaces, and other sources of high heat. A rise in the number of burn cases is one of the major factors that is expected to drive the industry growth. According to a research article published in 2021, by the American Burn Association, more than 400,000 people receive treatment for burn injuries each year in the U.S.

There is a significant rise in cases of burn injuries that needs the reconstitution of the burnt area with skin patches, which is majorly done by dermatome device. In addition, the increasing incidence of pressure ulcers is among the major concerns at home and, especially, in hospitals. The lack of physical mobility or the presence of a physical disability may lead to pressure ulcers. It is more common among the geriatric population due to their reduced ability to move as a result of growing age. According to a research article published by the Arizona center of aging in 2015, about 70% of pressure ulcers occur in people over age 65 years. Such a significant rise in the incidence of pressure ulcers is estimated to contribute to the growth of this market.

Product Insights

Based on product, the global industry has been further segmented into drum dermatome devices, knife dermatome devices, and powered dermatome devices. The powered dermatome device segment dominated the global industry in 2021 and accounted for the largest share of more than 43.00% of the overall revenue. The segment is anticipated to continue this trend throughout the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be credited to the advantages offered by powered dermatome devices over their counterparts. The powered dermatomes provide consistent and reliable skin grafts and are easy to use, which makes them an ideal choice for many surgeons.

The drum dermatome, which was earlier commonly used is now less frequently used. The powered dermatome devices are further fragmented into pneumatic, battery-operated, and electric dermatome devices. The pneumatic dermatome devices segment held the highest revenue share owing to their growing popularity and increasing adoption rate. Air dermatomes are mostly used for large skin grafts due to their consistency and easy-to-use properties. Hence, increasing the adoption of air dermatome devices, especially in skin grafts, is expected to boost segment growth.

Application Insights

Based on application, the global industry has been further categorized into plastic surgery, reconstructive surgery, general surgery, chronic burn care treatments, and others. The chronic burn care treatments segment dominated the global industry in 2021 and accounted for the maximum share of more than 33.55% of the overall revenue. The high is attributed to a rise in the number of burns globally, especially in developing countries like India. According to data published by the National Library of Medicine, the estimated annual burn incidence in India is around 6-7 million each year. The developed countries also have a huge burden of burn cases each year.

For instance, according to the data published by the American Burn Association in 2020, every year, nearly 450000 individuals suffer from burn injuries in America. The plastic surgery segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Factors, such as technological advancements in plastic surgery that have made it safer and reduced the recovery time as well as the cost of the procedure, have led to the growing popularity of plastic surgeries. Moreover, the growing disposable income levels and the rising influence of social media are other key factors that are expected to boost segment growth over the forecast period.

End-use Insights

Based on end-use, the global industry has been further categorized into hospitals, Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs), dermatology clinics, and others. The hospital end-use segment dominated the global industry in 2021 and accounted for the highest share of more than 51.50% of the overall revenue. The high share of this segment can be attributed to the fact that in most trauma or burn cases, the patient is usually taken to the hospital. The hospital settings also provide a wide range of options for surgical procedures i.e. general surgery, cosmetic surgery, and treatment of chronic burn cases; all can be carried out in this setting.

Thus, increasing usage of dermatome devices in hospitals is expected to augment the segment growth during the forecast period. On the other hand, the ambulatory surgical centers segment is expected to register a maximum growth rate over the forecast period. This is mainly due to the growing popularity of aesthetic or cosmetic surgeries being carried out in ambulatory surgical centers. Moreover, these settings offer advantages like reduced cost by minimizing the overall patient stay post-procedure. Thus, making it an ideal option for individuals that do not need a prolonged hospital stay, thereby fueling the segment growth.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the global industry in 2021 and accounted for the maximum share of more than 41.0% of the overall revenue. This high share can be attributed to factors, such as well-established healthcare infrastructure, presence of established industry participants, and favorable reimbursement scenarios. In addition, it has secured its position in the top 3 countries with the highest number of plastic surgeries. The country has the highest number of plastic surgeons, globally. According to the Aesthetic Society, in 2019, the U.S. had 6900 plastic surgeons, which is far more than any other country.

Dermatome Device Market Trends by Region

Thus, rising cases of plastic surgeries are anticipated to boost product demand over the forecast period. On the other hand, the Asia Pacific region is expected to register the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. This is due to the rising burn cases in developing countries like India, Malaysia, and Indonesia. According to an article published in the Journal of Burn Care & Research, in 2022, South and South-East Asia are the most burdened region that accounts for 30-40% of all global burn cases. Moreover, the growing popularity of cosmetic procedures in the region coupled with increasing disposable income is projected to fuel the growth of the regional market over the forecast period.
