Moist Wound Dressings Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
- Transparency Market Research
Innovations in advanced wound care dressings have changed the paradigm of health care standards since the last decade. Moist wound dressings are the most widely used dressings in treatment of wounds. Increasing preference for moist wound dressings is attributed to factors like maintenance of optimum moisture levels for cell growth and proliferation, and expedition in the phases of wound healing. Moist wound dressings offer advantages such as proper exudate management, and less pain and scarring as compared to conventional dressings which results in quicker wound closure. The design of moist wound dressings includes layers such as a protective outer layer, absorbent polymer fibers, absorbent layer, non-adherent contact layer, and flat adhesive layer. The several advantages associated with use of moist wound dressings include autolytic debridement, effective functioning of keratinocytes, collagen and growth factors, reduced scarring and pain, as well as faster wound healing.
Technological advancements related to matrix polymer design having superior absorption of exudate in moist wound dressings have led to significant reduction in opportunistic infections, along with reduced cost and minimum disruption of wound bed by reducing maceration. The market is witnessing growing trend of collaborations and licensing agreements between major and emerging market players. Increasing prevalence of diabetes, rising awareness regarding treatment compliance in wound management, growing investments in long term care centers, and skilled nursing facilities are anticipated to contribute to the growth of the market. However, resistance of medical professionals to change treatment regimens with advanced products, and lack of system that alarms the possibility of ulcer are projected to restrain the growth of the market.
