Key Market Trends
Foam Dressing to Witness Healthy CAGR Over the Forecast Period
Foam dressing is an extremely absorbent dressing used for wound care. Foam dressings need less changing of dressings when compared to other types of dressings. Foam dressing works for heavily exuding wounds, like weeping ulcers, deep cavity wounds, wounds caused after debridement, etc.
These are generally made from semi-permeable polyurethane. They allow water vapor to enter but keep out contaminants and bacteria. In some cases, the outer layer of these dressings may be waterproof, depending upon the need. A variety of wound types, with at least a moderate amount of exudate, including abrasions, lacerations, pressure ulcers, incisions, infected wounds, and draining periosteal wounds, are expected to benefit from foam dressings. Foam dressings are usually prescribed for their biggest advantage: providing a moist and warm environment, which is ideal for healing. These dressings are majorly used for full or partial-thickness wounds, that have moderate or more drainage.
Furthermore, these dressings serve as a cushion to protect the affected area and also act as a barrier against bacteria during compression therapy. The ability of these dressings to be used as primary dressings or secondary dressings during accidents or other serious cases is expected to increase its adoption.
The United States to Dominate the Market
Major factors that are driving the market for surgical dressing in the United States are rapidly growing aging population, a high number of diabetic population, and the developed healthcare system which adapts to the novel innovations.
