Wound Care Market

Regional Snapshot

  • North America was the leading market in wound care in 2022, with a share of ~45%. Forecasted growth rates will be significant throughout this forecast period due to factors such as an expansive patient base in the U.S. and an aging population that poses higher risks for developing wounds; further fuelling demand within this region.
  • According to the Administration for Community Living's 2019 report on aging, health and well-being, ~54 million people were 65 or older – that's 16% of America's total population. North American demand for wound care products will likely continue to increase due to an increasing number of road accidents as well as lack of skilled professionals in this sector.
  • Over the forecast period, Asia Pacific will experience the fastest compound annual growth rate of 4.7%. This is due to lifestyle changes that have resulted in an increase in chronic illnesses. According to Down to Earth, India had 74.2 million diabetics between 20 and 79 years old as of December 2021.
  • By 2045, this number is expected to grow exponentially to 124.8 millions. Furthermore, medical tourism in Asia Pacific continues to experience strong growth due to an array of factors, including an increase in surgery volumes and quality. With all these factors combined, Asia Pacific should see some of the fastest growth rates over this period.

  • Due to the enormous prevalence of chronic diseases and the aging population, the US and EU are the two largest markets for wound care products.

To fuel market expansion, introduce technologically advanced products.

  • Due to increased investment in research and development, these products will be in high demand across the developed world. ConvaTec Group PLC released ConvaMax onto the global market in January 2020; a super absorber wound dressing designed specifically for treating high-exuding wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers.
  • Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) offers many clinical advantages and is becoming more widely adopted among healthcare professionals around the world, thanks to advances such as single-use market players. Smith & Nephew announced in March 2020 that their single-use NPWT system ‘PICO14' would be available on U.S. shores to reduce surgical site infection risk and dehiscence. Furthermore, novel products designed for rapid healing are likely to gain acceptance among both patients and healthcare professionals, potentially fuelling growth within this sector in near future.


Delays in Diagnosis for Advance Wounds and Chronic Wounds in Emerging Countries Can Be attributed to Product Adoption Limitations

  • Due to the delay in diagnosis and treatment, chronic wounds such as pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and leg ulcers can become more severe and even lead to amputations. In emerging countries like India, China, and Brazil, the rate of delayed diagnosis is significantly higher than in developed countries. This is due to a lack of awareness in the populace about hard-to-heal wounds, limited access and development to healthcare infrastructure, and a lack of established guidelines and action plans from governing bodies.
  • According to an article published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery Asia-Pacific, it was found that most foot ulcer patients in West India are delayed for more than one month to up to one full year. This includes diabetic/neuropathic ones. All of the above and the lack of favorable reimbursement policies are responsible for a lower diagnosis rate, which in turn, limits the adoption of these products by emerging countries.


  • Increasing Demand for Advanced Wound Care Products: The growing need for advanced wound care products, such as bioengineered skin substitutes, negative pressure wound therapy devices, and growth factors, presents an opportunity for market expansion.
  • Emerging Markets: The emerging markets, particularly Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa, present significant growth prospects due to increasing healthcare expenditure and rising chronic wound prevalence.
  • Telemedicine and E-commerce: The growing adoption of telemedicine and e-commerce platforms for wound care products is expected to propel market growth through improved patient access and convenience.
  • Increased Focus on Home Healthcare: The growing attention paid to home healthcare is expected to spur demand for wound care products that are easy to use and require minimal supervision.


  • High Cost of Advanced Wound Care Products: The cost of advanced wound care products such as growth factors, bioengineered skin substitutes and negative pressure wound therapy devices can be quite high; this may prevent their adoption in certain markets.
  • Lack of reimbursement policies: In certain countries, reimbursement policies for wound care products may be inadequate or nonexistent, which could restrict demand for these items.
  • Regulatory Challenges: The regulatory requirements for wound care products can be extensive and time-consuming, which could delay the introduction of new products into the market.
  • Lack of Skilled Personnel: For effective management of chronic wounds, skilled healthcare professionals such as nurses, wound care specialists and physicians are necessary. This may prevent the adoption of advanced wound care products.
  • Inadequate Healthcare Infrastructure: In some developing countries, the healthcare infrastructure may not be sufficient to support wound care products, thus restricting their availability and adoption.
  • Patient Compliance: The success of wound care treatment depends on patient compliance with dressing changes, infection control measures, and lifestyle modifications – which may prove challenging for some patients.
