Hydrogel dressings rehydrate necrotic and sloughy tissue to effect debridement while providing moisture to wounds. They comprise water suspended in a gel made up of insoluble hydrophilic polymers, which swell up on contact with water. They are manufactured from polymers of synthetic molecules, such as polymethacrylate and polyvinylpyrrolidone. They control the exchange of fluid at the wound-bandage interface, promote granulation, and encourage complete healing. They assist in alleviating pain while preventing dead space from becoming infected. In addition, they boost wound re-epithelialization as hydrogel dressings partially mimic skin structure and enhance the growth of skin components. As a result, they find extensive applications in hospitals, specialty clinics, and home healthcare centers across the globe.
Hydrogel Dressing Market Trends:
At present, the growing prevalence of chronic wounds, such as venous, pressure, and ischemic ulcers, represents one of the key factors driving the market. Besides this, governments of several countries are undertaking initiatives to increase awareness about the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, which is contributing to the growth of the market. Moreover, key market players are extensively investing in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce cost-effective products for improving the treatment of chronic wounds. They are also focusing on marketing strategies to boost their sales. In addition, the growing utilization of hydrogel dressings to keep wounds clean by eliminating diseased or necrotic tissues via autolysis is offering a positive market outlook. Apart from this, the increasing demand for advanced wound care products to prevent surgical site infections is offering lucrative growth opportunities to industry investors. Additionally, there is a rise in the incidence of blood clotting in trauma cases around the world. This, along with the burgeoning healthcare industry, is bolstering the growth of the market.
