Global Wound Care Market to Reach US$ 28.3 Billion by 2028, Fostered by Surging Prevalence of Pressure Ulcers

May 18, 2023 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Wound Care Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global wound care market size reached US$ 20.0 Billion in 2022.  Wound care refers to the process of treating and managing various types of wounds to promote healing, prevent infection, and minimize complications. It involves various techniques and interventions aimed at creating an optimal environment for the wound to heal. It helps to remove debris, dead tissue, and bacteria from the wound, which can inhibit the healing process. It promotes new tissue growth, accelerates healing, and reduces the risk of complications.

Global Wound Care Market Trends:

There is a surge in the prevalence of pressure ulcers due to skin fragility, thinning of the cell layers, and decreasing cell growth. This, coupled with the increasing occurrence of diabetic foot ulcers, especially among the geriatric population, which is more susceptible to severe medical disorders, represents one of the major factors driving the demand for wound care around the world. Moreover, the rising number of surgical procedures and the growing concerns about post-operative surgical wounds are catalyzing the need for wound care like moist wound dressing to control infections and enable faster healing. In addition, the growing adoption of home healthcare facilities and significant improvements in the healthcare infrastructure is influencing the market positively. Apart from this, the advent of smart dressings that can monitor healing and alert healthcare providers to any complications is impelling the growth of the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 28.34 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 5.01% during 2023-2028.
