Global Moist Wound Dressings Market to Reach US$ 6.46 Billion by 2028, Fostered by Rising Geriatric Population

March 31, 2023 | Healthcare

IMARC Group's latest report, titled "Moist Wound Dressings Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," finds that the global moist wound dressings market size reached US$ 4.77 Billion in 2022. Moist wound dressings are utilized for various purposes, including absorbing fluids, reducing exposure to infections, and promoting new tissue growth through enhanced angiogenesis and collagen synthesis. They help break down dead tissue and fibrin, remove drainage and dead tissue from lesions, and facilitate faster healing. They are available in various types, including collagen, films, foams, hydrocolloids, hydrogels, and alginates. Among these, collagen moist wound dressings are particularly effective, as they provide tensile strength to the skin, attract essential cells such as fibroblasts and keratinocytes, and offer a natural scaffold and substrate for new tissue growth. They also encourage debridement, angiogenesis, and re-epithelialization. As a result, moist wound dressings are gaining immense traction in the healthcare industry across the globe for the treatment of acute and chronic wounds.

Global Moist Wound Dressings Market Trends:

The rising geriatric population and the widespread prevalence of chronic conditions, such as obesity and diabetes, represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Moreover, rising incidences of pressure ulcers caused by skin fragility, thinning of cell layers, and decreased cell growth are positively influencing the market growth. Additionally, the escalating demand for moist wound dressings due to the rising number of surgical procedures and concerns about post-operative surgical wounds, as they are an effective way to prevent surgical site infections (SSI) and promote faster wound healing, has catalyzed market growth. Besides this, rising awareness about the benefits and effectiveness of moist wound dressings has augmented the product demand. Furthermore, key players are launching new and innovative product variants based on synthetic polymers classified as passive, interactive, and bioactive to expand their portfolio and gain a competitive edge, thereby contributing to market growth. Along with this, the emergence of home healthcare facilities is another major growth-inducing factor. Other factors, including the rising incidences of burn injuries, significant improvements in healthcare infrastructure, and technological advancements, are also anticipated to create a positive market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 6.46 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 5.05% during 2023-2028.
