Advanced Wound Care Technologies 2018 - 2028

Opportunities in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of chronic non-healing wounds

Brand new for April 2018
The market for advanced wound care technologies will exceed $20 billion by 2028
Though the human body has a tremendous capability to heal itself, wound healing can stall and create chronic non-healing wounds due to a variety of reasons such as ischemia, bacterial contamination and chronic inflammation.
Common chronic wounds include diabetic foot ulcers (DFU), venous leg ulcers (VLU) and pressure ulcers (PU). Advanced wound care is often required in the treatment of these chronic ulcers - less than 25% of DFUs and less than 30% of VLUs are successfully treated by the current standard of care treatments.
Diabetes, patient age, and obesity are critical risk factors to developing the common non-healing wounds of DFUs, VLUs and PUs. Populations with these risk factors will rise drastically in the next 10 years, especially in comparison to the last 10 years. Thus, the incidence of chronic wounds around the world is expected to rise with the increasing elderly population, as well as the increase in obesity and diabetes. Already in 2018 there are close to 1 billion persons aged 60 and above, over 2 billion adults who are overweight, and over 500 million persons with diabetes worldwide.
In this report, the market for advanced wound care technologies is forecast to exceed $20 billion by the year 2028. The 10-year forecast is also broken down by the wound types of DFU, VLU, PU, burns and other (for example, traumatic injuries and surgical wounds). Key trends in technological development to watch out for in the next 10 years include:
  • Kits and devices to streamline and decrease the difficulty of wound care
  • Diagnostics for early detection of pathological bacterial infection
  • Connected devices and sensors to improve patient monitoring and care effectiveness
  • Connected devices and sensors for the prevention of ulcers
  • Devices to bring improved healing rates into the home
The report includes a breakdown of the wound care market by wound type.
The report covers a broad spectrum of wound care technologies under the following categories:
1. Debridement
a. Dressings for autolytic debridement
2. Pressure management
3. Compression
4. Bacterial burden management
5. Therapeutic devices
a. Negative pressure wound therapy
6. Biological therapies
a. Extracellular matrix substitutes
b. Amniotic therapies
7. Wound monitoring and tracking devices
a. Electronic skin patches
Examples of technologies covered in this report include ultrasonic probes for debridement, smart beds and shoes for ulcer prevention, sensors for compression pressure monitoring, point-of-care imaging devices for bacterial management, bioelectronic devices for improving healing rates, negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and 3D wound imaging cameras. An entire chapter of the report is dedicated to current state of electronic skin patches for the monitoring of wound status.
