The advanced wound care dressing market size is expected to grow from US$ 4,333.25 million in 2022 to US$  6,629.49 million by 2030; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 5.46% from 2022 to 2030. The growth of the market is attributed to the growing number of burn wounds, chronic diseases, and road accidents, which are contributing to the rising demand for surgical procedures. Increasing surgical procedures are, in turn, boosting the market growth. However, the high cost associated with advanced wound care dressings hinders the market growth.

Increasing surgical procedures Demanding for Wound Care Management Drive Advanced Wound Care Dressings Market.

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as ulcerative colitis, cardiac arrest, cancer, and brain hemorrhage has led to a rise in the demand for surgical procedures. For instance, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), in 2020-2021, cardiovascular disease was the reason behind the hospitalization of 600,000 people, representing 5.1% of all hospitalizations in Australia. Among these patients, 146,000 coronary angiography procedures were reported, out of which 97,200 (67%) were performed for males and 48,900 (33%) for females. Similarly, an article published by Eurostats in 2023 showed that in 2021, transluminal coronary angioplasty was one of the top ten surgical procedures performed in European countries. It was performed an average of 553 and 390 times per 100,000 inhabitants in Croatia and Germany, respectively.

Market Trend

Expansion of Existing Technologies and Launch of New Innovations Emerges as Key Trend

Major market players in the advanced wound care dressing market are focusing on research and development activities, which has resulted in the product of novel innovations that are faster and more effective than traditional wound dressings. For instance, in March 2022, Cardinal Health launched its first surgical incise drape using industry-leading antiseptic Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG). The drape is equipped with Avery Dennison’s patented BeneHold CHG adhesive technology, which reduces the risk of surgical site contamination by preventing the growth of organisms that typically cause surgical site infections (SSIs). The incise film is strong, conformable, and breathable, providing a sterile surface that acts as a barrier against contamination.

Application-Based Insights

Based on application, the global advanced wound care dressing market is segmented into Heavy Exudated Wounds, Burns & scald wounds, Ulcers/Bedsore/Cavity wounds, Post-Operative Surgery Wounds and Injuries, and Others. The heavy exudated wounds segment held the largest market share in 2022 and is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during 2022–2030. Exudate is referred to as the drainage that seeps out of wounds when it is in its initial stage. The body produces this liquid in response to tissue damage and indicates the severity of the wound. Successful exudate management is a vital part of wound management. Excessive amounts of exudate in the wound bed can cause problems like maceration of the peri-wound or denudation. In wounds that become infected, exudate levels often increase, and exudate can become viscous. These challenges can disrupt and delay the healing process, so it is important to take the necessary steps to ensure that the wound bed remains moist but not overly saturated. Wound dressings have different ways of handling fluids, such as absorption, gelling, retention, and moisture vapor transmission. Advanced wound dressings such as sodium alginate dressing, foam dressing, and hydrocolloid dressings are suitable dressings as they absorb the exudate, maintain moisture, and facilitate the wound healing process.

End User-Based Insights

In terms of end users, the advanced wound care dressing market is classified into hospitals & clinics, specialty centers, homecare, and others. The hospitals & clinics segment held a larger share of the market in 2022 and is anticipated to register a higher CAGR during 2022–2030. The hospitals are the primary healthcare centers that patients seek for first aid and chronic wound care management. The number of patients visiting hospitals is more than any other healthcare center. Apart from fee reimbursement, the availability of medicines is quick in these healthcare centers. Therefore, the number of patients visiting hospitals for surgeries is higher.
