What are the key trends within the Wound Dressings market?

The North American wound dressing market commanded a dominant revenue share, owing to the presence of a large geriatric population base, and increased patient awareness levels. Increasing prevalence of chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and venous ulcers in this region also contributes to overall market growth. The US, Canada, and Mexico will experience fast growth in the wound dressings market. Increasing cases of patients with chronic wounds, a rise in the aging population, a high number of surgical procedures along burn and trauma cases are factors that are responsible for the growth of the European wound dressing market. However, the high cost involved in treatment is a key factor that would restrain the growth of the market across Europe. The advanced wound dressing market has shown steady growth in the historic period and is expected to grow at a higher rate in the forecast periods.

Asia-Pacific wound dressings market is expected to grow fast due to the aging population and growing demand to address unmet needs in the population especially in India and China. The presence of a large population coupled with increasing patient awareness levels and rising disposable incomes are the major drivers for this region. The presence of a large population base suffering from diabetes is also expected to be a high impact rendering driver of this region.
