Report Overview

The global wound irrigation systems market size was estimated at USD 303.84 million in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.9% from 2023 to 2030. The demand for wound irrigation systems is on the rise, owing to technological advancements, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, and the rising number of surgical procedures. The rising prevalence of chronic and acute wounds and the introduction of technologically advanced products are the major factors anticipated to drive the market. For instance, in May 2021, Becton, Dickinson, and Company launched BD Surgiphor, which is the first ready-to-use aqueous povidone-iodine (PVP) irrigation solution that helps in loosening and removing wound debris.

Moreover, the high prevalence rate of diabetic foot ulcers is anticipated to further drive the market growth. For instance, according to information published by the National Health Service (NHS) in November 2022, venous leg ulcer is the most common type of leg ulcer which accounts for more than 60% of all cases in the UK. Therefore, such factors are anticipated to positively impact the wound irrigation system market growth over the forecast period.

According to the Health Research Educational Trust (HRET), around 15.0 million surgeries are performed in the United States each year, with approximately 2.0% to 5.0% of patients having surgical site infection. A wound irrigation system provides a constant flow of fluids across the open wound surface, enhancing hydration of the deep surgical site and wounds. The approach also allows for the precise separation of cellular debris and surface pathogens from wound exudates. As wound irrigation systems allow rapid healing of surgical site infection, the rising number of surgical procedures is anticipated to surge the demand for wound irrigation systems, thereby propelling the market growth.

The rising cases of traumatic events and road accidents are also one of the major contributors to market growth. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute facts published in 2021, there will be 39,508 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States, resulting in 42,939 deaths. As a result of this, there were 12.9 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.37 deaths per 100 million miles traveled. In Rhode Island, the death rate per 100,000 people ranged from 5.7 to 26.2.

The global rise in the incidence of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and other autoimmune diseases, is anticipated to fuel market growth. Factors such as antimicrobial resistance, the adoption of unhealthy and sedentary lifestyles, alcohol consumption, and smoking are some of the major factors contributing to the rise in the prevalence of non-communicable diseases. For instance, according to an article published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in September 2022, non-communicable diseases kill approximately 41 million people across the world. Whereas, according to the National Diabetes Statistics Report, 37.3 million people have diabetes, and 96 million people aged 18 years or older in the U.S. have prediabetes.

Product Insights

The manual wound irrigation system segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 55.3% in 2022. The manual wound irrigation system involves thumb-controlled pressure and provides an accurate forceful stream directly to the desired site. This system is mainly used for deep surgical wounds and hard-to-heal wounds. Therefore, the increasing cases of surgical site infection and diabetic foot ulcers are anticipated to drive the segment over the forecast period.

The battery-operated wound irrigation segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period. It allows rapid and efficient removal of necrotic tissue, foreign material, and bacteria. This system is easy to use and reduces the risk of acquiring cross-contamination. It is mostly used for burn cases and chronic wounds and therefore, increasing incidence of burns is further anticipated to propel the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, according to a study published in PubMed Central in February 2020, the WHO estimates suggest that 11 million burn injuries occur every year.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market has been categorized into burns, surgical wounds, traumatic wounds, and chronic wounds. The chronic wounds segment accounted for the largest revenue share of around 30.0% in 2022 and is also expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030. The increasing cases of chronic diseases, especially diabetes, across the globe are fueling the segment growth. For instance, as per the report published by the WHO in 2019, chronic diseases are one of the leading causes of disability and deaths globally and the disease rate from chronic conditions is also accelerating worldwide. Furthermore, as per the report published by the Fight Chronic Disease Organization in 2018, around 47.7% of people in the U.S. suffered from chronic conditions in 2015, and around 49.2% of people in the U.S. are expected to suffer from chronic conditions by 2030.

Global wound irrigation systems market share and size, 2022

Chronic wounds are classified into diabetic ulcers, vascular ulcers, and pressure ulcers. These wounds share several characteristics, such as prolonged or inflammation, chronic infections, the formation of drug-resistant microbial biofilms, and the inability of dermal and/or epidermal cells to respond to reparative stimuli. These pathophysiologic processes, when combined, fail to heal these wounds. The underlying disorders, however, vary between different types of chronic wounds.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 42.0% in 2022. The increasing cases of burns, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, and the presence of numerous prominent players in the region are likely to drive the market growth in North America. In addition, the availability of skilled professionals and developed healthcare infrastructure are expected to drive the expansion of the market over the forecast period.

Wound Irrigation Systems Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. The region has witnessed a significant increase in healthcare expenditure, leading to greater investment in research and development activities. This has helped in the development of new and innovative products and technologies, which has boosted market growth. In addition, the increasing prevalence of chronic wounds, especially diabetes, is expected to surge the market growth over the forecast period. According to a study published in the Oxford University Press, around 100 million patients in China need wound care every year, and around 30 million of these have severe skin wounds.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Key players are adopting various strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, product launches, and partnerships to strengthen their foothold in the market. For instance, in November 2022, InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. and Sanara MedTech Inc. formed an SI wound Care partnership that focuses on providing wound care solutions to improve patient outcomes. This strategic initiative is expected to reduce the cost of care, improve outcomes, and strengthen the position of these companies in the market.
