Key Market Trends
Dressing is Expected to Witness a High CAGR Over the Forecast Period
The management of chronic wounds is found to be a significant medical burden associated with significant healthcare expenditures. Since the establishment of moist wound healing in the 1960s, several types of wound dressings have been developed.
Foam has a significant role in the clinical management of chronic wounds and in moist wound healing. Over the past 30 years, polyurethane foam has become one of the most commonly used wound dressings for exudate management in moist wound healing. The foam consists of a porous structure that is able to absorb fluids into air-filled spaces by capillary action. The most commonly used foam is polyurethane. Silicone foam is less frequently used as the primary absorbent in wound dressing but often is applied as an adhesive wound-contact layer.
Foam dressings are produced with variable thickness and may be adhesive or non-adhesive. Foams are commonly supplied with a film-backing, with the purpose of providing water- and microbial-resistant barrier from the external environment. The advantages associated with the foam dressings will propel the growth of the market studied.
The market players are committed to developing innovative healing solutions for customers and patients across the care continuum, generating proven clinical outcomes. The companies are also showing continuous growth and are developing new and differentiated products and services, which address the evolving healthcare needs among patients, providers, and consumers.
