Wound Debridement Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2020 - 2025)
Factors such as rising incidence of diabetes & associated wounds, an increase in the volume of surgical procedures and growing geriatric population are driving the growth of the wound debridement market. The incidence of diabetes among all ages is increasing, mainly due to obesity, unhealthy diet, and physical inactivity. The incidence of chronic wounds, especially foot ulcers is increasing among the diabetic population resulting in the increased usage of wound debridement products. Therefore, the growing focus toward the development of better treatment options, along with huge burden of diseases is expected to drive the wound debridement market. However, the high treatment cost is expected to restrain the growth of the global market in the forecast period.
Gels Segment is Expected to Dominate the Market in the Forecast Years
Based on products, the market is segmented into gels, ointments & creams, surgical devices, Ultrasound devices, mechanical debridement pads, and other wound debridement products. Gels segment is expected to dominate the market as it maintains a moist wound environment and had certain benefits as compared to other products such as no inflammation, less bleeding, and removal of necrotic tissues safely, without causing infection. These are recommended for wounds that range from dry to mildly exudating as one of the important barriers to wound healing is the removal of necrotic tissue from the wound bed. In addition, increase in volume of surgical procedures and rising diabetic population also contributes to the growth of wound debridement market.
