Global Antimicrobial Wound Dressings Market Segmentation

The global antimicrobial wound dressings market research report includes a detailed segmentation by product, wound type, end-user, geography. Considered an ideal solution to maintain an optimal balance between moisture and bacterial growth, the demand for foam-based dressings is growing worldwide. These dressings are compliant with the existing wound care protocols as they are effective against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, along with fungi and yeast infections. With the rise in management of post-surgical incisions, pressure ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, diabetic ulcers, donor sites, abrasions, lacerations, dermatologic disorders, foam-based dressings are highly popular, thereby influencing market prospects.

The rise in surgical site infections (SSI) is a key factor for the growth of acute wounds. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed vulnerabilities in healthcare systems across the world and has adversely affected the global market. To reduce the risk of infections among patients and healthcare providers and conserve critical resources such as personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators, and intensive care beds enacted a temporary ban on elective surgeries for a short period, which limits the usage of advanced wound care products. Moreover, the number of surgical procedures is increasing in the geriatric population as the elderly are prone to acute and chronic diseases, which need the usage of antimicrobial dressing materials worldwide.

A high percentage of chronic wound patients are turning to hospitals for treatment as they are equipped with the latest machines and technology for diagnosing, treating, and healing wound conditions. All high-risk diabetic foot cases requiring intensive care services and major amputations take place in hospitals. Hence, the increase in diabetic foot cases is likely to augur well for the market. With the outbreak of COVID-19, patients opting for hospitals for wound management has decreased, which has reduced the demand for antimicrobial dressings temporarily. In 2020, specialty wound management clinics accounted for a share of over 26%. Non-healing wounds require specialized care due to underlying, complex conditions, which prevent abrasions from healing. The outbreak of the pandemic has brought specialty wound care clinics to prominence as most hospitals prioritize the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

The US is a major revenue contributor to the global antimicrobial wound dressings market share. The usage of advanced wound care healing products in the country is higher than other countries across the world. The application of antimicrobial wound dressing materials is high as patients suffering from chronic and acute wounds are growing. For instance, in the United States, over 6.5 million patients are affected by chronic wounds, costing more than $50 billion annually. Chronic wounds represent a large and growing threat to public health in the US. Around 3% of the population over 65 years of age have open wounds. In 2020, the US government estimated that the elderly population is over 55 million, suggesting that chronic wounds will continue to be a persistent challenge. The APAC region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. It is poised for significant growth on account of the growing geriatric population, the increase in accident and burn cases, and the high prevalence of diabetes.
