Such high prevalence rate of chronic diseases in the U.S. is a major factor that results in high disability and fatalities among individuals in the country.In addition,high prevalence rate of diabetic foot ulcers is also anticipated to drive the topical wound agents market.

The chronic wound segment is anticipated to witness fastest growth rate over the forecast period.
